realtor: Christmas Dinner 2019 at Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, FL - 12/26/19 08:31 AM
Christmas Dinner at Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida. Nice turn out and most of our "snowbird" residents have returned now. Those that have not, will soon be arriving now that the holidays are nearly over. I pity those driving down on Interstate 95 or 74. Those are typically one 1,000 mile parking lot that moves very slowly. I was in it twice and said never again. Wonderful weather though. Sunny and mid 70's during the day!
Many of our 55+ subdivisions have these dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas so that those residents who can't be with their families up north can … (0 comments)

realtor: Spanish Trails Village, Zephyrhills, FL has 2019 Xmas Golfcart Parade - 12/22/19 01:29 PM

Yesterday evening Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida held its annual golf cart parade. Many of the residents decorated their carts with flashing lights, tinsel, ornaments and even music to help usher in the holiday season. My mom and her little dog Daisy in her festive red coat rode along on a tour of all the streets. The people who did not have carts sat out to watch the parade go by. And those of us in the carts got to drive by all of the homes, many of which were elaborately decorated with lights.
After the parade, everyone retired to … (0 comments)

realtor: Hurricane Dorian will Likely Miss Most of Florida! Nice!!! - 08/31/19 02:30 PM



As of 5 PM today, 8/31/2019, now Hurricane Dorian's projected path has changed drastically since my post of yesterday. The experts now say that it will pass us out to sea in the Atlantic on Monday and Tuesday of next week. If you look at the "cone" you will notice that most of Florida, including Zephyrhills, Pasco County and Tampa are no longer included.
One of the reporters on the Weather Channel said that the storm would likely pass Cape Kennedy while 100 miles out into the Atlantic. That is a pretty good buffer zone if it comes true. Most of … (2 comments)

realtor: Hurricane Dorian's Course Now along Florida's Eastern Coast - 08/30/19 02:26 PM


As of 5 PM today, 8/30/2019, now Hurricane Dorian continues its west northwest track with a predicted landfall in south Florida early Tuesday morning. However, this latest update shows that the center line of the cone is now over the eastern coastline of Florida rather than up the center of the state. Could it be that this storm will curve back out to sea??
At the moment it is over open warm water and that only adds fuel to the storm's strength. It is now considered a major storm, and they say it will be the same when it comes ashore. … (2 comments)

realtor: Hurricane Dorian Headed Straight for Florida - For now at least! - 08/30/19 08:55 AM


As of today, 8/30/2019, now Hurricane Dorian continues its west northwest track with a predicted landfall in south Florida early Tuesday morning. It is over open warm water and that only adds fuel to the storm's strength. It is now considered a major storm, and they say it will be the same when it comes ashore. Once it reaches land, normally its strength will diminish somewhat as the friction of the land and the lack of warm water saps some of its power, normally. That is not to say it cannot be dangerous.
From the current predictions it looks like it … (0 comments)

realtor: Storm Dorian Changes Path & Strengthens - Hurricane Could Hit Florida - 08/28/19 08:58 AM

As of today, 8/28/2019, Tropical Storm Dorian's has changed. As you can see above it has shifted to the north and now appears to just barely brush the eastern side of Puerto Rico before heading over mostly open water east of the Bahamas. This warmer water looks like it will add strength to the storm since now it is predicted to become a MAJOR hurricane by Sunday morning, September 1st. Nice Labor Day gift, right?? However, the change that took place last night changed things a lot. And changes could take place again between now and Sunday. Below you can download … (1 comments)

realtor: Tropical Storm Dorian enters the Caribbean August 27, 2019 - 08/27/19 03:28 PM

As of today, 8/27/2019, Tropical Storm Dorian has passed Antigua and Barbados and continues on a projected northwest path. We are still several days away from any Florida landfall, if it makes it as far as here. But if you look at its trajectory, you will note that the National Hurricane Center is predicting that it will remain a tropical storm for now. However, as in the past, these storms can be unpredictable and can strengthen quickly. It does appear to go over Puerto Rico and they certainly don't need more problems from the weather. I hope they are luckier this time … (1 comments)

realtor: 2019 Truth in Millage Notices Arriving at Homeowners Properties Now - 08/20/19 04:47 PM

When I opened my mailbox today (8/19/2019), I found a letter from Gary Joiner, the Pasco County Property Appraiser of the county where I live, telling me what my proposed property taxes for 2019 would likely be. Probably most of Florida's residents are also receiving these notices, also called Truth in Millage (TRIM). notices. It is worth your while to closely examine the one that pertains to the property(s) that you own.
The notice will show you 3 main things:
What your property taxes were last year. What they will be this year if proposed budget changes are not made. What they will be if … (0 comments)

realtor: Thanksgiving Dinner 2018 in Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, FL - 11/22/18 11:51 AM
Here in Zephyrhills, Florida, many of our winter residents have now returned. Often their families are back in northern states. This is also true for our permanent residents. So many subdivisions like Spanish Trails Village, a 55+ subdivision, have potluck dinners on special occasions and holidays. For Christmas and Thanksgiving they have a traditional turkey dinner with all of the fixings. Residents contribute a dish to the feast and for the past 4 years, I have purchased the turkeys/hams for the dinner. I also do this for Colony Hills, South Hill and Zephyr Shores subdivisions. As you can see by the … (3 comments)

realtor: The 2018-19 School Year has Begun in Pasco County, Florida - 08/15/18 05:27 PM
Florida's students and teachers have returned to their classes in the public schools of Pasco County, Florida for the 2018-2019 academic year. I suspect that this will be the case in nearly every county in the State of Florida.
When I was teaching here two decades ago, we started after Labor Day. And many schools around the country still do. But several years ago, statewide exams were created and it was felt that more time was needed to prepare for them. So the beginning of the school year was moved up by several weeks.
In any case, there will be more children and school … (0 comments)

realtor: Floridians need to keep a close watch on Hurricane Irma! - 09/05/17 04:46 PM

As of today, 9/5/2017, Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, is projected to move along the northern Caribbean Sea touching the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. If it continues along this path it looks like it will go directly over the Florida Keys and then move into the Gulf of Mexico. As you can see in the above image, its projected path has it moving in more or less a westerly direction, with its center going over the Keys on Sunday afternoon. That is still a few days off and its path could change. The most northern fringe of … (1 comments)

realtor: Should You Retire Your Mobile Home Titles? That Depends! - 06/29/17 06:00 PM
Not long ago I got a letter from the Florida State Retirement Office. It appears that since I worked for 9 years in the public school system here in Pasco County, I could now start collecting early retirement if I want to. It is not a lot of money since I only taught 9 years here, and 12 years in Spain which don't count. However, a few hundred dollars each month is still better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
Many people do not realize that mobile homes also have a retirement option, and I don't mean demolition. A … (0 comments)

realtor: Florida is Bidding Hurricane Matthew a Fond Farewell - 10/07/16 06:14 AM

As you can see on the above image, the center of Hurricane Matthew is now near the Florida/Georgia border and a long way from Zephyrhills, Pasco County and Tampa. Though it has been breezy last night and today the winds were in no way scary. When I drove a round town I saw some SMALL branches and palm fronds in yards, but nothing big. And the rains were not much more than our regular summer showers that happen. Maybe an inch or so. As far as I know we had no power outages locally.
Perhaps there is some isolated damage caused by … (0 comments)
