We have a guy who is always sending us his take on current sayings so he made a comment on the following:
Be pleasant until ten o'clock in the morning and the rest of the day will take care of itself. ~Elbert Hubbad
It does make sense that how you start your day sets the tone for the rest of the day. So try it; smile early in the morning, laugh early in the day and it helps to make your day stay pleasant.
This can help set the tone for the office also. Have (9 comments)
floresville: Boring facts for South Texas and the Floresville / La Vernia / Seguin area - 03/22/12 02:00 PM
State Rep John Kuempel spoke at the Floresville Chamber of Commerce meeting yesterday about the Texas Congressional Redistricting that is being done at this time. Every 10 years with the new census reports, the population has shifted so the congressional districts are re drawn. That is a story in itself. He had some facts about Texas and the changes in the population. Guadalupe County which includes Seguin, some of Schertz and Cibolo had a population growth of 46% from 2000-2010; Wilson county which includes Floresville, Poth, La Vernia, Adkins, and Stockdale had a population growth of 31.2%. These areas are where (0 comments)
floresville: Have you ever wondered how the Congressional districts get their shape? - 03/22/12 09:43 AM
I know the district shapes do have a lot to do with swinging voter favor your direction for each party but I often wondered why they were so totally weird. Couldn't the courts come in and say "Straighten your lines, make it a little more uniform." Well, State Representative John Kuempel visited with our Floresville Chamber of Commerce yesterday at noon. He talked about the current redistricting that is occuring in the state of Texas. That redistricting because of the court challenges have pushed our voting in the primary to May 29. We now have interim districts approved but not the (4 comments)

floresville: Extreme Home Makeover comes to Floresville, TX - 01/18/12 07:53 PM
Extreme Home Makeover is in Floresville, TX. Everyone was so excited to learn that Extreme Home Makeover was planning their last project to air here in Floresville, TX. THEN, when I was told who it was to honor I was even more excited. This soldier was badly wounded in Iraq. His name is Shilo Harris and he has a wonderful family behind him. His wife Kathreyn and his children. The reason this is so special for me is that my first listing in Floresville was the home that Shilo & Kathreyn bought. While I was not the buyers agent but the (3 comments)
floresville: Beautiful, Wonderful Rain in South Texas - 12/27/11 06:31 PM
The beautiful, wonderful rain has arrived in South Texas and Floresville. Most of Texas has been in a drought this year and it has been horrible. While it has been dry in Floresville and all of South Texas, it has affected the entire state. That and the major fires have taken a toll on the Texas landscape. Not only did it help the Bastrop wildfires spread, many trees are dying not to mention yards. It is a pretty bleak picture with dying grass in the yard. The very old (some say 400 yrs old) oak tree in front of (7 comments)

floresville: Oh My Goodness what is that noise? - 10/04/11 04:10 PM
Yesterday, I heard a noise that I had not heard in a long time. It was a lawnmower hard at work. Astounding. It is for us in South Texas as we have been so drought plagued this year we have not had to mow our lawns in weeks. While that may be a good thing, the looks of the lawns is not. Most are dying and have become sparse. So when it rained last week it was a very welcome sight for all of us.
Then the sound of lawnmowers began again. We hope that sound continues a lot in (2 comments)
