It is a title commitment for your title insurance on the property you have under contract. Be sure to read through for accuracy (spelling of names, etc). The document serves as the preliminary title report to ensure title is clear by the time of closing. It is the document referred to on page 1 of the contract you signed for the sale or purchase of your property.

And the Elkins Lake Sunsets from our porches--they sure are Pretty! Pretty Relaxing too! Now, don't get me wrong, I am not relaxed all that often. But a few days from Christmas, taking time to "decompress" a little is a GOOD thing! And how could this view NOT have a somewhat sedating effect?!

What I love about VB! - 12/18/10 08:45 PM
Okay, it's Saturday night. And.....I just toured the Christmas display at the Bellagio!

Not sure why I have never been-- Well, I enjoyed the heck out of my tour of the Bellagio. It is Amazing! The deer are my favorite part. Check it out. I can't believe the scale of the display! But, I "reckon" that's Vegas... And VB, you are the quintessential "Vegas-ite."

Eight People in the Butler's Pantry - 12/17/10 12:55 AM
Eight People in the Butler's Pantry What I Love About Being a Realtor A surprise by its very definition is unexpected. And often, the unexpected joys in life are the ones that keep us doing what we do. I have had the pleasure of helping numerous families find home. And, among those families, a couple of pretty large families. Families with 5 children (yes, each) to find a home they all love. What I didn't expect was to find the joy of connecting with the children that I have missed so much since leaving the teaching/Choral Director profession. I taught (1 comments)
What My Husband Will and Will Not ...Allow Me To Do - 12/17/10 12:42 AM
What My Husband Will and Will Not ...Allow Me To DoBy: Mari Zuvich MontgomeryLife is great when you have freedom. Freedom to speak, freedom to act, freedom to try new things. As I drove through a drive through to pick up some lunch, a soldier in service to our great country crossed the parking lot.I instinctively opened my window and shouted, "Thanks for your service to us," he turned around, removed his cap, tipped his head, smiled broadly and said, "your welcome, mam."We live in a truly great country. On a daily basis, it really helps to think about and appreciate all those freedoms.In some of our households, however, those freedoms (8 comments)

So, there it was in all of its splendor-----a truck, a "semi" to be exact---- "Going Green" along Interstate 45. Driving to my office the other day, I witnessed one of the many available visual ironies A semi -- hauling-----you guessed it----yet another trailer ("pups" as they are called) with the logo "Go Green!" Hmmmmmmmmmmm.............. Kind of made me think of several things, besides the obvious irony. For one, the House Hunters episode (I love that show) that was about a woman in Oregon looking to live in a Green Commune. The concept is smaller living areas with the basics and a large main house where communal dinners are shared, and fresh organic (1 comments)

Immigrant Dreams : From Croatia to PA to TX : The Gift of Freedom and a New Life is Born at Ellis Island - 12/05/10 12:53 AM
Immigrant Dreams : from Croatia to PA to TX : the Gift of Freedom and a New Life is Born at Ellis Island My Grandfather, born Viecoslaw Zuvic, later Louis Zuvich came through Ellis Island with a dream, like so many. He not only held a job, but was a supervisor, and never learned English. Talk about your great communicators. The tongue of my family is Serbo-Croatian, the "umbrella language" of the former Yugoslavia. Viecoslaw means "forever glorious." I will never forget because I looked through the Ellis Island manifests for a long time and never found "Louis Zuvich." Well, it (16 comments)
Stunning, isn't it? Cowboy stadium in all of its glory, and the Cowboys? Well, I dunno. Who will "show up" tomorrow again the Indianapolis Colts. Should be "some" game. I mean, how inconsistent can they get? Picked to not only play on the Super Bowl---but WIN the Super Bowl. What happened?
So many expectations, yet so much disappointment. Players let us down, coaches let us down. But let me say this: The special teams coach, Joe DeCamillis, is an amazing man and an amazing (0 comments)

"Imported" Sunrise Is this a "Good Morning" photo, or what?! My father in law sent this to me. It is from his former student from SFA (Stephen F Austin University) Wiley Denson. My father in law writes: " You guys like sunsets. How about this SUNRISE sent by Wiley Denson from his Alaska home" Wow, wow, wow. What a place. My father in law is just about to be 86 AND legally blind, and my mother in law is 83. She is a 3-time cancer survivor ( but that's a whole other blog). They travelled to Alaska last year.
