houses for sale in centerville ut: Localism Post...Country Cleaners.... - 07/14/14 05:12 AM
Dry cleaning is usually so expensive that you're glad that most dry clean only clothing items can be worn more than once before you have them cleaned.  I have read that men's suits for example shouldn't be dry cleaned too often.  I thought when I read that, it won't be a problem to follow that advice, the price and inconvenience alone were enough to stop that from happening.
Well that all changed for me!  We have noticed Country Cleaners since we moved to Bountiful.  It is next door to one of our favorite restaurants, China Star.  We had noticed that they … (29 comments)

I thought that I would start Friday out with another classic car.  The cars of this generation are works of art.  I love seeing the love and care that people have put into restoring these classics.  I thank them for sharing them with us, I really enjoy looking at them!

Another Gorgeous old Classic!  I love the red rims on the wheels!

houses for sale in centerville ut: Localism Post..Don's Meats... - 07/08/14 02:12 AM
I write this posts to help people considering moving to or living here in South Davis County to find some of the great attributes that this community has to offer.  Don's Meats is a butcher shop that is a stand alone shop.  There is not a grocery store attached to it.
Don's Meats has great package deals to help you stock up your freezer as well as great meats to buy for daily consumption.  The Don's Meats nearest our home is in Centerville, it is near our Keller Williams office on Main Street. Here is the website for Don's Meats: http://www.donsmeat.com/

This is a post that I just had to write.  I mean Tony Burgers, I just had to go there and eat.  It is located in Centerville and the food was really good.  There are currently 4 Tony Burgers locations.  The one in Centerville is located at 84 West Parrish Lane.
We have only eaten there once, but the food was excellent.  Their french fries were exceptional!  If you're hungry for a burger and willing to try something new, give Tony Burgers a try!  Here is their web site: http://www.tonyburgers.com/

houses for sale in centerville ut: A Little Localism History..Bamberger Railroad... - 07/07/14 08:23 AM
The Bamberger Railroad is a part of Northern Utah History.  It was a electrical railroad that ran between Ogden and Salt Lake City.  It was a commuter rail.  It ran for 67 years, and it's final run was December 31st 1958. 
The founder was Simon Bamberger, the 4th Governor of Utah.  It was different from Union Pacific in that it stopped in many of the small towns between Ogden and Salt Lake, Union Pacific didn't stop between Ogden and Salt Lake.  
One of the last reminants of the old rail line is the bridge that now connects vehicle traffic between … (14 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Book Review...King and Maxwell... - 07/06/14 12:21 AM
I will admit, it took a little longer to finish King and Maxwell than I had originally had planned.  Many will recognize the characters from a popular series of novels by David Baldacci.  This is the 6th book in the series.  I loved this book.  
There were a couple of reasons why it took me so long to finish the book.  The first was time, I usually read just before going to bed, and the past month, I have been so busy that I wouldn't get much sleep if I had stopped to read. The second reason is selfishness, when … (5 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Localism Post..Have a Sweet Tooth?? - 07/05/14 01:29 PM
I am writing several localism posts to illustrate some of the unique and great places that people looking to move to South Davis County can experience.  I am writing today about what used to be one of my favorite places to visit.  The Bakery and Dick's Market.  There are two locations for Dick's Market one in Centerville at 84 West Parrish Lane.  The other is located on Orchard Drive in Bountiful just south of 2200 South.
Dick's Bakery has wonderful baked treats, some of my former favorites were eclairs, donuts and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  If you have looked at photos … (10 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Localism Post...El Matador.... - 07/05/14 01:17 PM
One of the great local landmark restaurants in Bountiful is El Matador.  It is now located at 606 S Main Street in Bountiful.  I am not sure when El Matador relocated, they did it when I wasn't living here.  It used to be down in the area where Costco is now located.  
El Matador is one of the first places where I was served salsa that had been heated up. It is a nice change of pace!  The food is very popular, and the restaurant is generally crowded.  If you're looking for someplace to grab some Mexican Food, stop in … (4 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Trash Pickup.......... - 07/03/14 01:00 AM
Our normal trash day is Friday, so naturally I was curious what that meant for our trash with the 4th of July falling on Friday.  I did what most people would do, I looked up Bountiful City's web site and sure enough there was the information.
Our trash will be picked up Friday Morning.  This is good to know, it is also the day that the recycling is picked up.  Here recycling is only picked up every other week.  Our recycling bin gets really full in two weeks, so it really needs to be picked up.
I do hope that helps … (0 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Scrambled Eggs.... - 06/21/14 12:39 AM
I am sure many, if not all have heard the story behind the Beatles song "Yesterday". It's first working title was "Scrambled Eggs", Paul McCartney then penned one of my favorite songs which began with that inauspicious title. 
I think that sometimes doing something like this helps one be able to then be able to turn on the creative faucet and write something.  So far it is working, at least for today!  I have heard many writers say, and experienced this myself, that just beginning is the most difficult part in the writing process.
Here on Active Rain, we have assembled … (13 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: You Just Never Know... - 06/19/14 10:57 PM
This morning I was pleasantly surprised by a comment on a blog that I had written in 2008.  I know that has happened to other people here on Active Rain, but I haven't had a comment on a blog that old before.  It really goes to show that once you put something out there, it is there forever!
I have tried to keep my blogs in a positive tone, but there are times when I have been frustrated and vented.  I also hope that my writing has improved through the years.  It is sometimes difficult to find the time to write … (29 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: World Cup.... - 06/19/14 04:46 AM
Well the World Cup is in full swing.  It is an exciting event to watch, although the United States is not one of the favorites, I am hoping that they will pull off the huge upset.  I am somewhat torn, I would never cheer against the United States, but I also want Argentina to do well.  
Who do you cheer for?  I know that Argentina is one of the favorites along with Brazil, but there are many teams who have a chance to win because of their talent.  So I am still cheering for a huge upset and the United … (6 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Wordless Wednesday A Boy's Summertime Dreams..... - 06/18/14 04:52 AM
I haven't really done a Wordless Wednesday post in quite a while, so I thought I would harken back to some of the great memories of my youth. That is one of the dangers of moving back to your hometown after leaving, almost everywhere you go reminds you of something from your past.  So here are some of the things I used to dream about....

Baseball

Cool Cars

Camping outdoors

Living on the Beach, Gilligan Style

More Cool Cars

Hiking in the Red Hills

Being a Cowboy

Being a Hero

houses for sale in centerville ut: Summertime TV..... - 06/18/14 03:00 AM
Due to our busy schedules, Darcy and I don't go out a lot.  We tend to be homebodies as much as we are able.  One of our huge vices is television, I guess that is what happens when you grew up in the Television age.  Not that long ago, at least for someone our age, Summertime TV meant reruns of the shows that aired over the Fall and Winter months.
Several years ago, a few of the cable networks began a strategy of creating new series and running them against the reruns on network TV.  One of the more successful series … (15 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: June Showers..... - 06/18/14 12:26 AM
After days and days of nice early Summer weather, we were blessed with some much needed rain and cooler temperatures.  I for one, see this as a much Welcomed relief to sort of cool us down before the really hot weather settles in for the rest of the season.
There are some things about Summer that make everyone, well almost everyone smile.  I like the warm, not hot temps that come along with Summer.  I like the Baseball season, car shows, and being outdoors.  This is generally a busy time in the Real Estate Business too.
With that comes the dilema, … (7 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Bountiful Carshow and Cruisin... - 06/13/14 01:13 AM
Well, it is Summertime and one of my favorite things to do is to go to car shows.  Tonight and tomorrow there is a great one on Bountiful's Main Street, and it is for a great cause.  It is the Bountiful Rotary Carshow and Cruisin.  The procedes go to help buy coats for children in need this winter.  This really is a great cause!
The Car Parade and Street Party is tonight from 6 PM to 10 PM.  There are some amazing vehicles that come to this!  I have noticed several of them around town last night and this morning.  If … (13 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Any Regrets??? No, not really.... - 06/10/14 04:46 AM
I have been asked lately if I regretted anything that I had done.  I didn't answer immediately, but it did get me thinking.  I know that I have made as many mistakes as anyone else, probably more than most, that doesn't mean that I honestly regret those mistakes.
They have made me who I am today, which is still a work in progress.  I still make my share of mistakes, and then some.  The truth is, I do regret some of the things that I haven't done.  Did I let my parents know how much I loved them before they passed … (17 comments)

houses for sale in centerville ut: Thank You seems Woefully Inadequate..... - 06/06/14 01:34 AM
Many of you know that today marks the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy.  This invasion was the turning point of the European Theater of World War II.  I have often mentioned that my uncle, Dale Cannon, was in one of the early waves of soldiers to attempt a landing on Omaha Beach.
He was fortunate enough to survive this horrific battle and the war.  He, like many of his generation, went off to war and didn't return until the war was over, or they just were physically unable to continue fighting.  He received serious wounds at the Battle … (43 comments)
