I know where I will be this weekend - the third annual Moss Rock Festival at The Preserve in Hoover, Alabama.  I have been every year so far and I'm really looking forward to it.  The weather should be beautiful and it will be great to walk around the large park outside the Town Hall and take in ...
What a morning!  Temperatures in the 30's here in Hoover Alabama are absolutely exhilarating.  These are the kind of temperatures we need to have the fall colors at their best.  Maggie and I went for our morning walk around 7:30.  There was FROST everywhere. The sun was starting to shine, but had...
Next Tuesday, November 4th is the Big Day.  Election Day. No matter which of the 6 (yes 6) presidential candidates you want to see leading this great country, it is imperative that YOU go to cast your vote. Every vote counts.  I find it really irritating that the news channels will predict a winn...
  Every morning, my clock radio wakes me up.  Some mornings I hear music, some mornings I hear DJ chatter and other times I hear commercials.

Well the news is talking about the "Market Ups and Downs" again.  Every day when I turn on the TV, or look at the news on msn, I see bad news about the economy and the housing market.  I think it is interesting to hear how the "Dow Plunged 500 points, but you don't hear Dow Ran up 500 points. I j...

Every year on the 3rd Saturday of October, the Hoover High School Band hosts the Hoover Invitational Marching Band Festival.  I have been to many of these festivals in the past and the atmosphere is warm and inviting as the spectators cheer on the various students. I am really looking forward to ...
I was showing a house the other day and it looked good on the inside.  The people had moved out, but had left furniture behind and "staged" the home to look inviting. The carpet was clean. The Bathrooms and Kitchen were spotless.  My client was making positive statements about the property. When ...
