Wednesday morning Alamo Title sponsored a Builder Lender Forum lead by Mark Sprague with Residential Strategies. I was one of 4 Realtors to participate representing the realtor community. What an eye opener! Under discussion were several hot topics. One issue the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) was highly debated. Of course everyone agreed there is room for improvement in the way pressure is applied to appraisers to make value on a property. However, the consensus felt the new code is not proving to hold protection for the homebuyers, mortgage investors and the housing market. In fact it is (8 comments)
Happy Father's Day~Sunday Comics by B.C. - 06/21/09 02:03 PM
My husband Gene has a favorite comic strip B.C. I don't know how many of you read this strip but every father's day a message is written. I love this!! For times not remembered of things you did, To love and protect me from life... And lead me so gently when I was a kid, Through awesome and sweetness and strife. I reflect now upon what a wonder you were, And how I tried to not be a bother. Each night I seek out the brightest of stars, And pridefully know that was my father. Thank you B.C. for a wonderful (8 comments)

Oh, they'll be so excited!(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids) I'll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues,And I'll bounce on the furniture...wearing my shoes.I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they'll shout!(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids)

I just read a great book by David Baldacci called "The WholeTruth". My husband, Gene, refers to me as the "Spin Doctor!" He always says I look for the positive in all situations. I say if you dwell on the negative that is the course you will follow. Play negative tapes in your head and that's what will come to you! In the book "The Whole Truth" there are companies called PM's (Perception Managers). They create facts and then sell them to the world as the truth. The problem is a negative untruth can be established so quickly and (27 comments)

He Was Beaming Like A Lighthouse! - 06/02/09 11:52 AM
Last year our oldest grandson, Jeffery, took the TAKS test (Texas Standardized test which students must pass to move to the next grade) 3 times before passing! He was very nervous but vowed he could conquer this measurement of the curriculum taught. Jeffery was diagnosed with dyslexia and has endured several years of classes to help overcome this problem. Jeffery worked diligently throughout this year and was inducted last night into his middle schools NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY!
He was beaming like a light house and Paw Paw and I were so proud of him!! Hard work (18 comments)
