A 16 year olds question to Adults - 04/25/08 01:47 PM
I usually hate even watching the news but my husband was watching it and I caught ABC telling everyone that the housing market was at a all time low, and that it was like dead winter!!!! Then they told about rice, wheat, corn and gas up to $5 is really getting bad and food was going to go sky high because of shortages. They said that rice was going to be limited, and Cos-co and Sam's were already allowing a limited amount. Brittany my 16 year old daughter was standing there and said well look at the Bible, second Timmothy chapter 3 1-10 , It talks (11 comments)
Saving Money - 04/24/08 08:34 AM
I heard so many great ideas from everyone yesterday about how to save money and what is going on with them with the high fuel cost. It seems that no one is having it easy right now. The number one thing everyone said was they have just about quit eating out. Here are the top things I heard. Moving office to home, dropping local phone services, and cell phone service changes, and driving habits. Most feel that they are going to be in big trouble if something does'nt happen soon. The gas prices have really hurt all of us, and they just keep (6 comments)
What are you doing to save money? - 04/23/08 09:48 AM
With gas over $3.40 a gallon here we have had to cut back on everything. So this is what we have done to save, and my kids will tell you it can be rough, but we have stuck with it. 1. If we can't pay cash for it , we don't buy it. Good bye credit cards, we paid them off and have 1 ER card, and I do mean emergency. 2.My kids were running up there cells bills, and the contract was up , so we got them pay as you go phones and give them $20.00 a month. They found a unlimited text (9 comments)

Nothing - 04/22/08 08:21 AM
So I guess the mood for the day is a total feeling of blankness, nothing is there. I just can't seem to feel anything, or even care on a reasonable conversation. I am so tired , and just washed out. I have fought this business for the last 6 months. I know God is there and I have prayed for hi to show me what I need to do, but the more I try the more stressed out I get. Nothing bad is happening and God has blessed us so much. This week has been hard, because I feel nothing, it is like (7 comments)
One more thing - 04/21/08 07:34 AM
I feel like I am going to scream. Everyone is yelling for me in 10 different directions. My dad who is 84 decided to drive his car , he is almost blind and can't see much at all. So he decided to must drive across town to Food Lion . Bilo 1 mile down the road is not good enough. So he pulls out in front of another blind person who can't see and she hits him so hard he ends up backwards and excels instead of breaks and goes into a creek the car is total loss, and he resigns (1 comments)

New clients came with a load of problems. - 04/17/08 11:10 AM
I have some property near Furman University. A young couple called me about the property and ask me to show them more properties. I had them call a mortgage consultant to find out what they qualified for and to see just what they could afford. Turned out they had a massive load of student loans, and a 580 credit score. They have about 10 student loans and out of the 4 years of college she had only found a job making 20 thousand a year, and he was still in school but working. Needless to say they can't get financed until (4 comments)
Hope - 04/17/08 11:00 AM
When you turn on the news it is all negative news, nothing seems to be working, yesterday I couldn't handle another negtive word so I turned on the radio in my car to the Christan channel and heard nothing but smoothing and joyful music . Focus on the Family came home and I listen as I fought the traffic home. Before I knew it I was home and felt better. I felt the stress lift from my body. My advice turn off the bad news and listen to God! You will be uplifted and be able to deal with the rest (6 comments)

Spring is trying to hold it's own, but winter is still trying give us problems.

Lets put some good news out there for the Nation to hear! Lets give the news company's something good to talk about! look at (4 comments)
Looking for land - 04/14/08 10:03 AM
I have had several calls from builders looking for land to build. Ends up you just can't find build-able land at a good price. I do have a listing with 7acres, it is close to a wet land area, and it has pasture and woods. The area close to the creek is in the 100 plain, but there is 6 1/2 acres of usable land. Perfect for a house surrounded by pasture and woods and walking distance to Furman University. The owner had it pre approved for 5 home-sites, so if you-need land check this one out. Furman University is a really (1 comments)
