Is There Is GOLD In Them Thar Hills?


The State of Alabama has been under a gripping drought that does not seem as it is going to let go. So far St Clair County is not producing much Fall color. The leaves on the trees are turning brown and falling off. In the area around Pell City, it is about the same story. I could not wait until Fall arrived so I could go play with my camera. It has been extremely disappointing. I did find an place in the Talladega National Forest that produced some pretty colors. What … (9 comments)

st clair: Hummingbird Feeders - 09/18/10 06:10 PM
 

 
                                                       Hummingbird Feeders
 
I have shown a lot of homes in the Pell City, St Clair and Talladega area that had  hummingbird feeders in their back yard.  So this year, I put up a hummingbird feeder.   I have enjoyed sitting on my deck and watching the little guys feed.
It is understood that the hummingbirds will migrate.  Do you do take the feeder down now, or wait until all the other hummingbirds have had time to pass through the area on their way to migrate to take it down?

st clair: Your Master Bedroom Closet Can Take On A Life Of Its Own - 08/02/10 01:51 AM
For over 15 years, I have been selling homes in St. Clair and Talladega Counties and encountered this problem more than once.    I am going to tell you what most agents fail to tell their sellers.  You need to take note of this, if your master bedroom closet does not have ventilation.   I have shown homes that were immaculate, and when we got to the master closet, and opened the door, the body odor about knocked you over.  You must remember that when you hang cloths back in your closet that have been barley worn, they will have some sort of … (5 comments)

If you enjoy a glass of wine, and dining on white tablecloths, then you will enjoy our great neighborhood restaurant, The Tavern of St Clair, located at 4582 Cogswell Avenue, Pell City, Alabama.
All members of the family are invited to dine in the formal non smoking area, or if you prefer a more casual dinner, you will enjoy eating in the sports bar with television screens in every corner.

According to Wikipedia  there was 1,156  confirmed tornadoes in the United States in 2009.  It is sad to say that 21 people lost their lives during these storms.  The death toll from tornadoes is down due in part to public awareness on the safety procedures to take during severe weather.

st clair: Speechless Sunday ~ Land Of The Free - 07/04/10 02:38 AM

 
I had the most enjoyable day spending time at a family BBQ with a friend that I haven't seen in a long time.  As I was winding down Pine Mountain on my way home,  I saw this amazing view of St Clair County.  I pulled the car over and got out to spend a moment taking it all in and realized at that moment how fortunate we are to live in this wonderful country.   We are truly blessed to live in the land of the free.

st clair: Blackberry Winter - 04/28/10 03:08 AM
 
Having moved to Pell City, AL from Maryland I had never heard the expression blackberry winter.  While browsing at my local garden center, I heard the young lady working there tell another shopper that the plants she was looking for would be stocked after blackberry winter. Totally confused, I had to ask what she was talking about. She explained that blackberry winter was a old regional weather saying that when spring is here and you think it is time to plant, zap the cold weather hits again.  This usually happens during early May when the blackberry plants are in bloom.
