cross gates homes for sale: 24 Hour News - 12/22/08 11:24 AM
I remember when I was a kid.  Yea a long time ago.  I couldn't wait until I had cable.  Now I wonder if it is more of a curse than a blessing.  We are continuously bombarded with news.  Have you noticed most of it negative.  There is CNBC in malls today saying Americans aren't spending enough.  There is CNN complaining about the need for food banks.  Man enough.  How in the world did we survive a hundred years ago???  Maybe worked hard????  Merry Christmas everyone.

cross gates homes for sale: Timely Manner - 06/27/08 07:33 AM
In our day of high tech gadgets and devices one forgets the basic way of doing business.  The telephone.  This includes returning calls in a reasonable amount of time.  I left a message for an agent last Wednesday to see one of her listings.  Guess when she called back.  Today, Friday to say it was vacant go ahead.  Guess what my buyer no longer was interested.  He moved on to other ones.  How does this agent ever expect to make any money?

cross gates homes for sale: China to Stop Oil Subsidies - 06/19/08 08:16 AM
Finally a break in sight for high gas prices?  China announced today it will stop paying a portion of it's citizens fuel bill.  The Chinese will now bear the brunt of increased fuel costs like we have been doing in the states.  India is also guilty of this and hopefully they will do the same soon.  The increased cost id killing the governments financially.  I always preach free markets work best.  This means heeping governments out.  The oil futures took a big drop today.  I am very curious to see what happens the next few months.

I now know what I want to be when I grow up.  A politician.  They consider themselves an expert on everything.  They get great retirement and health care.  they even get great perks, whether legal or not.  I read Eric Bouler blog today about the two senators and other big wigs with SWEET deals from Countrywide.  Just to put icing on the cake.  Our own Louisiana legislators are voting themselves a nice pay raise of over 100%.  T%he mayor of New Orleans eats out on the taxpayers dime every chance he gets.  Not anything cheap either.  Four hundred for his wife anf … (4 comments)

Those of you living in Southern Louisiana know what a hurricane can do to our homes and lifestyles.  The state of Louisiana has a web site to help make leaving a little easier.  Go to for more information.  The season started just yesterday, and we have a way to go before the all clear is sounded this year.  I hope and pray that it is another quiet year for us.

cross gates homes for sale: Deadliest Catch - 05/26/08 03:58 AM
I am staying home today and relaxing.  I have been watching Discovery's Channel Deadliest Catch marathon they have on today.  I guess this rough bunch is the closest thing we have to our old pioneers from long long ago.  Can you imagine having one of these guys as a client.  I don't think they would have trouble speaking their mind.

cross gates homes for sale: Memorial Day Weekend - 05/24/08 12:09 AM
I hope everyone is having a safe and lovely Memorial Day weekend.  I am spending ,time in Lafayette Louisiana.  Since my daughter is off to college this Fall, this will be the last one for us.  Been doing this about seven years now.  I think we will miss it at first.  Then we will enjoy the free time.  The highest gas I have seen was $3.91, and the lowest was $3.70.  The regular unleaded hasn't made it to $4 yet.
Everyone needs to take a moment for the veterans and those serving our country right now.  We have been able to … (4 comments)

cross gates homes for sale: Wait A Year - 05/01/08 07:54 AM
I have been working with a recent widow the past couple of weeks.  One thing she keeps bringing up in conversation is she wants to wait a year.  Either she read or was told to wait a year after a traumatic event to make a major decision.  I agree with this advice completely.  One day she is ready to look and the next day she wants to wait.  I am being patient with her.  I am not going to rush her at all.  I don't push any of my clients to make a decision.  This I think is a good rule … (11 comments)

Who are you for?  Do you care?  I just want to watch the game and finally it will be over.  Oh, who am I for?  The betting man in me says take the Giants.  The football fan says take the Patriots.  Boy would I love to see the Giants not only cover but win outright.  How can I not pull for Eli.  Native son of New orleans where I was born years ago.  Do you think Archie and his wife Olivia are proud of their sons? … (17 comments)
