One day while window shopping I spied this Buddha and I really liked it and made a mental note to go back and purchase it after Christmas. I was by that shop last Friday and noted they had closed down. When you procrastinate you sometimes lose. Well isn't that a bit like Real Estate... i.e. I didn't do that mail out, now I see there are three homes for sale in that neighborhood. They may have been mine had I sent those postcards out! We have all heard don't put off for tomorrow what can be done today...or the early bird gets the worm.... Write that post today you may forget it tomorrow. At least start it and save the draft! So if you are ready to lease, sell, or buy a home please click on one of the Icons below to get in touch with me!

With the Holidays upon us, there is no shortage of parties.  From families, friends, co-workers to associates.  The problem is deciding how to prioritize them to fit them all into your schedule.  Today’s Holiday party was put on by Stewart Title.  This was a national party in their offices all around the country.  The theme this year was one of MY personal favorites…..  “The Cookie Party”…..  It doesn’t take a lot of coaxing for this party to make it to the top of my list!  So in eager anticipation we arrived to find that we were not going to be disappointed.  The festive table was full of, you guessed it…COOKIES!  I couldn’t have been more pleased.  The question was “Where do I start?”  The sugar cookies, the cake balls, the gingerbread  men….Decisions!  Without a thought about ‘blood...

Do you find you enjoy local area entertainment mainly when you have out-of-town guests? This year we had a succession of family and friends visit us within a short period of time. Activities were planned, and we wanted to enjoy ourselves along with our guests. We did not want to do the same things for all three groups of visitors. Consequently, a door was opened to new possibilities and we discovered The College of the Mainland's Community Theatre in Texas City, Texas. This venue is easy driving distance to virtually anywhere in the Clear Lake area of Houston, Texas.THE BIGGEST LI'L THEATRE IN TEXAS!The stage is the actual ground floor, with seats surrounding the stage on three sides, ascending up to the walls.

Photo by Kevin M. Cox, Galveston County Daily News Residents of Texas City and the close nearby communities who didn't see the flames of the devil's hell rising into the sky Thursday night, woke up this morning to read that fire had all but destroyed their St. John's United Methodist Church. In the 1960s, as well as today, St. Barnabus Episcopal Church in Denton is a small congregation in a town of a zillion Baptists, even a number of holy roller churches du jour.  And St. Barnabus' membership has always been comprised of primarily poor college students, professors and the like, so no big money. Like the Methodist church did last night in Texas City, in the late '60s St. Barnabus caught fire and it was burned here and scorched there, and all knew it was unlikely the parish had enough i...
