Two for one at Houston Garden Centers with this coupon - 02/18/09 03:12 PM
I don't use coupons much but since it's almost time to start working on my gardening again I start looking for good plant deals. I received an email about a special at Houston Garden Centers and thought I would pass it on. I have personally purchased Azaleas here and they have done well in my garden. http://ct.wkimailer.com/rd/cts?d=83-2623-1138-2346-321795-195378-0-0-0-1-2-322

My husband and I have 8 children. When I met my husband, he made about $50,000 a year and I made about $20,000 a year. We started out our his and mine relationship (3 comments)
Simple fixes that can save your rental properties and homes - 02/01/09 02:17 PM
My brother recently rented a house that in my opinion was far below par considering the shape it was in. The owner of said house said she thought the house was fine and she wasn't going to put anymore money into it.

Problem #1- gutters on the roof had not been cleaned out in years so they were full of pine needles, sticks and other debris and were sagging as well as (3 comments)
