Educational Post for 6/19/19
by Patricia Feager
 
Real Estate Agents are not expected to be Home Inspectors or Roofers. When it comes to a home purchase, roofing, and construction matters! During spring and summer in Texas, we can get thunderstorms and hail. When I have questions about my roof, I stop at my local insurance company and ask lots of questions. I have been told the best time to inspect is when you obviously have leaks and know there is a problem. However, visibility from down below isn't always reliable. That's why they recommend you get a free inspection with no obligation by … (6 comments)

According to history books, it became its own country called "The Republic of Texas," from 1836 until it joined the Union in 1845. Sixteen years later, Texas and 10 other states formed a Confederacy until the Civil War forced it back into the Union where it has stayed ever since.

"A Leader is someone who helps improve the lives of
other people or improve the system they live under."

PRESERVATION
American historic preservation of buildings has architectural integrity. Over the ages they have been bought, owned, and sold. The people who have been associated with historic buildings have been dedicated and celebrated. Many succeeded; many failed. Preservation requires on-going maintenance.
 
MISSION
The city of San Antonio started with a mission. It is called survival. The Alamo is the most important site in Texas history. Once a battleground for independence, it is now a landmark, a symbol of unity, independence, courage in sickness and … (11 comments)

Just like people's eating habits change in winter, bird diets do too! In order to survive without insects and berries, birds depend on what's available. A little help from the humans goes a long way to ensure survival of our fine feathered friends. Days are shorter. Nights longer. In the cold of winter, things go dormant. Birds don't just get to shop at Walmart's or Pet Stores, or prop their feet up in front of a cozy fireplace. Nor do they get to stock up like a squirrel. What do birds need … (18 comments)
