Almost four weeks ago, I decided to return to blogging here on ActiveRain. Well, to be fair, I decided to return to blogging in general, and this is my platform of choice. This is my 26th post since then (if I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will be kind enough to point it out - I counted quickly). Fra...

CQ Press (Congressional Quarterly) named Austin, Texas #4 on its list of lowest-crime cities with at least a population of 500,000. Interestingly, El Paso topped the list, and three Texas cities were in the top ten. San Antonio placed 10th. The data comes from the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting sy...

We had a lovely Christmas at our house this year. My mom was in town, the kids were supremely spoiled, and no one got sick. This marks the first year in recent memory when we made it through December unscathed by viruses of any kind. Two years ago, I battled a debilitating migraine which lifted a...

I saw a headline on a major news outlet webpage two days ago which read, "The Never-Ending Duck Dynasty Scandal Continues". This struck me as pathetic journalism for multiple reasons.

I had someone ask me today what I felt was my favorite part of being a real estate broker. I hadn't really thought about it much lately, but the question provided me with some food for thought, and when I think, I often write. My very favorite part is too easy - getting paid. (Thanks, Captain Obv...

This past year, God has enabled us to help a good number of needy families and individuals with our ministry, including 3 different homeless families that we helped to get into their own homes. The vast majority of the funds for this came from my online contacts and a few local friends, and our c...

Having lived in Pflugerville since 1995, I've seen many changes in this town. We built our first and second homes here, and we've chosen to raise our 4 kids in this community.   When we first moved here, the population was around 13,000. As of 2013, we have over 50,000 residents, with a $23.5 mil...
