While I was thinking about it, I walked down to the bus stop to get my L...

Yesterday I got a phone call from Scott Edwards, the new mayor of Hurricane.  Apparently I'm not the only person who uses Google Alerts, and Scott’s name popped up on The Putnam Scoop, my new local blog.  I’d written a little reminder about that whole dog limit law issue.  (I’m not a fan.)  Scot...

This was one of the best things we've done as a family. Anna was so much fun, and we did so much more together because we wanted her to have the good...

I went out of town this weekend and returned to e-mails and phone messages about the dog limit law in Hurricane.  Apparently, there has been some sort of question about it -- is it on the books or not?  I have a copy of the city ordinance and it does show a limit law of no more than two dogs per ...

What makes my house a home is the memories we've built over the years together.  The snapshots in my mind when I think of "Home" look something like this:Looking impossibly young, shopping with my husband for our first home.  Taking my parents along because we have no idea what we're doing.Walkin...

I had a post a while back about the dog limit law in Hurricane.  I got a little fired up about the subject and I ranted a bit.  I not only posted to my blog,  I also sent that entry out in the form of a newsletter to my clients, friends and family who were close enough to be affected by the law. ...
