The Beatlads, Birmingham's Beatles Tribute Band, will play tonight at Discovery UMC. Anyone who attends is in for a treat. Discovery UMC is located in Trace Crossings, across the street from Hoover, Alabama's Region's Park (formerly called the Hoover Met) which is the baseball stadium where the Birmingham Barons play.  Every year at the 4th of July game they have a fabulous fireworks display.  Over the years the church's parking lot has been a teriffic vantage point from which to watch the display.  Many church members bring ice cream for the visitors and fellow church members to share.  The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. This year there will be a special treat as the Beatlads have agreed to come and entertain the crowd. Check out their website at www.thebeatlads.net.  I have heard...

When I was between the ages of 18 and 38 I moved almost every year.  The one thing I learned is that you had to get rid of stuff.  I had it down to my clothes, furniture, 3 boxes and 3 50 gallon drums.  This included all my kitchen stuff and my Christmas decorations.  But, now that I have lived in my current house for 12 years, it is quite a different story.  When it's time to Sell Your Home in Hoover Alabama, the first thing you need to do is to get rid of the Clutter Clutter Eats Equity. Too much stuff makes rooms look smaller and focuses buyers' attention on your belongings rather than the home you're trying to sell. That's why many professional stagers recommend removing as much as a third of your things to better show off rooms and closets. Decluttering can seem overwhelming.  Wher...

  It is no secret I love trees.  I cried when they started cutting down the trees to widen HWY 150 in Hoover.  Do you remember how the trees used to make a canopy over the road by the Lake Crest subdivision?  It was always 5 degrees cooler when you passed under those trees - not the 100+ temps we drive in now! The benefits of trees are endless. I have two large trees is my backyard.  One is a cottonwood that gives me the worst case of sinus in the spring - but the tree isn't going anywhere!! I was walking from my car to Rhodes Park last month to attend the Do Dah Day Festival.  Walking through the streets in Highland Park, we had to keep going up and down on the cracked sidewalk because the tree roots had pushed the sidewalks upward.  There was shade everywhere and it didn't seem to mat...
