huntsville tx real estate: The Music of the Maltese - 08/24/13 08:33 AM
The music of the Maltese is quite beautiful. 
Sometimes uttered in sharp, staccato tones, sometimes in melodious and haunting strains, but is always both expressive and, let's say effective.
Their names are Dirk and Bella Mia.  They are 2 of my 3 little angels.  The other is my 12 year old Maltese, Carmencita. I love my puppinos.
Let me know what you think.....America's Got Talent...or maybe not??

Social Media---Social + Media. Fast track to "getting to know you, getting to know all about you" (okay---how many of you heard the song from the "King and I" in your head???) It's a different world than Cary Grant's of "Judy, Judy Judy" fame or Yul Brynner whose most famous role was the King of Siam in "The King and I."

huntsville tx real estate: Healthy Floors and Flooring Choices For Your TX Home for Sale - 04/15/12 08:33 AM
Healthy floors are an option for all of us. We walk on them every day, but how often do we actually give our floors consideration? Most of us have probably spent our entire lives not even thinking about carpet for example. We choose carpet based on color, style, and even price, not typically what the carpet is made from. The truth is that much of the carpeting that has traditionally covered our floors contains formaldehyde.
We often don't think about what we are surrounded by every day? What we walk on, sit on, drink out of are all made up of some type of … (2 comments)
