louisiana: Corks N Canvas :: Baton Rouge - 02/24/11 02:19 AM
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending a Friday evening at Corks and Canvas on Jefferson Highway in Baton Rouge with friends. I chose a Mardi Gras themed Fleur-de-lis class. Of course I chose a three hour class for my first painting experience instead of one of the simpler two hour classes! I was really more excited about hanging out with my friends and drinking lots of wine!
The evening started off pretty anxiously for me. You see, I am a perfectionist. 5 minutes into the class I was super stressed! I am not artistic and was … (0 comments)

louisiana: Neighbors in Galvez need help rescuing a dog! - 02/16/11 04:00 AM
**UPDATE** The dog has been rescued!
This story aired on the news last night.
I am saddened by what seems to be the lack of support from authorities in our Parish.
Seems that there is a dog stuck in the drainage system in Norwood Lakes. He was there last week while we had those days of below freezing temperatures. The neighbors have been feeding him and have asked for assistance in rescuing him. They were given a pole with a loop at the end... Doesn't make much sense to me.   If any of you know anyone that can help, please, please go … (1 comments)

louisiana: Should I Change The Locks On The Home I Just Purchased? - 01/26/11 09:01 AM
My answer to the question every time is, "YES"!
Many years ago, before I was an agent myself, my husband and I purchased a new home. We were very excited about our next move up in the housing market. The home was vacant when we started the negotiations. We closed within 30 days and everything we well. At the closing the previous owners handed over the keys to our new home. They asked if we were going to move in right away. We told them that we were leaving the next morning for two weeks to visit my husband's family up … (4 comments)

Tonight we had our first door knocker peddling her yummy goodness. All this talk about cookies made me think about searching for a Girl Scout Cookie page on Facebook. I found it! http://www.facebook.com/GirlScoutCookies Immediately I see a box that says "Go To App"... Well, I had to see what that was all about! You know those apps that let you send hugs and such?

louisiana: Santa Visits Local Galvez/Prairieville Neighborhoods - 12/10/09 02:55 AM
It just doesn't seem like Christmas until Santa Clause makes his annual visit thanks to the local fire departments.  I get so excited when I hear the Christmas music and the Sirens of the fire trucks getting closer.  Santa makes his way around the Prairieville neighborhoods to visit the children.  He takes pictures with the kids (and adults!), passes out candy canes, listens to their wish lists and most importantly, collects non-perishable food items for area food banks.
Click here to see when Santa will be coming to your neighborhood!
Get your canned goods and cameras ready...Santa is coming!  Merry Christmas!
