Taking Care of Each Other! - 10/11/10 10:14 PM
A NAR Benevolent Foundation is proposed, but needs our help to see it become a reality. Please read this post and take action so that we REALTORS can truly do our part to take care of each other by relieving some of the pain and suffering caused by tragedies described in this post. Via Joeann Fossland, Master Certified Coach (Advantage Solutions Group): “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead Think about this.... "Coma…a medically induced coma… Pat was in a coma… Put yourself (3 comments)
First of all, let me say that I adore each and every one of the current bartenders who cater so well to the regulars as well as those new to one of the finest restaurants in Lake Charles. So, why blog about Jacob? Like his counterparts, he is friendly and at ease with the customers. The difference is... Jacob is entertaining. He's one of those who can juggle (literally) the bottles and conduct other (8 comments)
CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME. LET'S DO WHAT WE CAN, WHEN WE CAN, WHERE WE CAN - 10/11/10 10:09 AM
Tish Lloyd is a broker in Wrightsville Beach, NC and one of my favorite bloggers. This morning, she has issued a challenge that is worth noting/taking. Her "Charity begins at home" message is one most of us adopt, but it begs the question...can we do more? Of course we can. Some of our giving/doing is private, but the nature of some programs is that we need to help spread the word. I'm going to take her challenge and will write a separate blog about a few of the organizations in the Lake Charles area that I respect and support. Via Tish Lloyd (7 comments)
Dog Dogs Exhibit a Hit! - 10/09/10 03:16 PM
Having attended last night's well attended opening of Elliot Erwitt: Dog Dogs exhibit at Historic City Hall, I'm thrilled to report that the exhibit exceeded my already-high expectations. Frankly,I encourage even non-dog lovers to take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy Erwitt's work! His photos capture canines from many countries and in a wide variety of situations. You can get a sampling by visiting this website, but there are so many more to see and, of course, they are much better up close and personal. Besides the Erwitt exhibit, local school children and adults submitted photos of their dogs in a (11 comments)
Kudos to Tony Cornner! Check out 3 staged homes this Sunday in the Providence! - 10/08/10 01:18 PM
Most of my colleagues accept the fact that, for the most part, I'm a stay-in-the-office-broker. I receive the mass mails for agent open houses, but generally only attend those in the Shell Beach Drive and/or Charpentier or Margaret Place areas. But, when Tony Cornner left me a personal voice mail with an invitation to three open houses yesterday, I knew I would travel to The Providence Subdivision in South Lake Charles. In his voice mail, Tony enthusiastically described that each house was being staged by a different furniture company and were show-ready. Sadly, staging is not the "norm" in our area, (4 comments)
Winter hours for the Lake Charles Farmer's Market - 10/06/10 01:23 PM
Last night around 6:15, three of us from Margaret Place rode our bikes through Downtown Lake Charles, then east on Kirby Street through a portion of the Charpentier District. Minimal traffic, beautiful historic homes, and a fall evening made for quite an enjoyable and peaceful bike ride with friends. Our destination? The Cash and Carry Farmer's Market on the corner of Enterprise Blvd and Broad Street. A 4th friend, forced to drive due to a broken arm, was to meet us in order to utilize her car for that which could not fit in our baskets. Turns out, we missed the (10 comments)
