I just spent 3 days marketing beef for my husband's company at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Downtown Houston for the Southwest Food Service EXPO. I had a blast. When my husband signed up to be an exhibitor at this EXPO I was very nervous about the whole thing. Are we ready to jump in and spread our wings to serve more restaurants? Were we wasting our money on the booth? Could I hold up physically for 3 days of standing and walking and working (3 comments)
How to Sell Veggies AND Real Estate at a Farmer's Market - 06/21/10 03:03 PM
The tomatoes are in, the blueberries are ripe, the peaches and watermelon, cucumbers...it is prime season for farmer's markets. Are you a backyard gardener with an over-abundance of fruit and vegetables? Instead of leaving mystery bags of produce on your neighbors front door, ringing the bell and running, consider selling your bounty at a farmer's market. Farmer's Markets are desperate for people that actually GROW vegitables. It is also a great way to meet people that have similar interests to you and to get to know people in your community. To find a market near you, check the Local Harvest list. (11 comments)
Out of Style HOA Rules: BOATS and CLOTHESLINES - 06/21/10 12:58 PM
It is my opinion that many Home Owner's Associations need to review their rules and bring them up to date. The TWO rules that TROUBLE me MOST: 1. NO BOATS STORED ON PROPERTY. Why not? Why can't I keep a boat in my backyard? How is my boat hurting the neighborhood? Why would a neighborhood that brags that they have 3 boat ramps not allow people to store boats on property? When I see boats parked in the backyard, I am usually impressed. "Wow, the people in this community must be doing well! Look at the nice boats!" I would love (8 comments)
Getting Very Worried about the Economy In Houston - 06/16/10 01:01 PM
Thanks to the Government, Is Houston heading for a Downturn? I try to keep up with the news. I try to balance the type of news I hear. I watch Fox News and BBS. I listen to Conservative talk radio and I listen to NPR. I want to hear both sides of the stories so I can come to my own twisted conclusions. Lately a strange thing has happened. They all seem to be reporting the same story, and they are getting worried about the future for Houston. Here is what I have gathered about the future of the economy in the (3 comments)
The Reaction to the Huge Oil Spill Seems ALL Wrong... - 06/11/10 12:34 PM
I grew up on Galveston Bay. We moved to Seabrook in 1973. Since then, the health of the coastline has been on my radar. I admit that I am not so PASSIONATE about it that I studied marine biology in college like many of my neighbors, but I paid attention to the current events and real estate developments along the Texas Coast Line ever since, and I LOVE living on the coast. While we all love our coast line, Houston built on OIL. When we go to the beach, we see rigs right off shore. We see the HUGE tankers and the (12 comments)
