Mexican in Chesterfield Missouri..... Salina's Mexican Restaurant Take time to stop by and get a bite of really great Mexican food, Salina's is located off Clarkson Road a little south of Wilson Road in charming Chesterfield, Missouri.  This restaurant is small but very tasty.  They serve the traditional salsa but they also add a twist with their spicy bean dip.  The chips were nice and crunchy.  The chimichangas were spectacular and the spicy chicken quesadillas were flavorful. After a day of shopping or working in the yard, it is nice to have someone else cook and clean up.  The service was very good and the atmosphere very traditional.

I had a GREAT time recently at the Butterfly House at Faust Park.  They held a reception for people who had donated a paving stone in front of the building.  The butterfly house is always a wonderful place to go.  This time there seemed to be even more butterflies flittering around then the last time I was there.  One particular butterfly was hitching a ride on a gentleman's head.  The man had walked all the way through the butterfly house - the butterfly would periodically flit off only to come back right away.  The gentleman kept saying that his student's wouldn't believe him when he told them about it on Monday, so I whipped out my camera phone and took several pictures then emailed them to him.  That got me started, by the time I was done, I had a camera full of butterfly pictures. ...

OK, so you are searching for a home and you are looking in the greater St Louis area and trying to make sense of where the different communities are located and what they are like and your friends keep saying, "Check out Chesterfield."  "You've got to see Chesterfield." So what is the buzz about Chesterfield really about?  I can give you basic data facts:  Chesterfield is located in West County, officially 22 miles from downtown St Louis.  It was incorported in 1988 and covers about 32 square miles.  The population of Chesterfield is just under 50,000 people.  The median household income is $83,802.00 and the median home value is $238,300 (this is based on the 2000 US Census Data report and the numbers have increased since then).  The school district's servicing Chesterfield are Parkway...

I recently received the newest issue of the Chesterfield Citizen and was reviewing all of the activities that the city of Chesterfield has planned for the summer.  Wow!  The activities include National Trails Day, the summer concert series, a 4th of July fireworks celebration, and free movies on the Plaza.  The Family Aquatic Center has tons of activities of it's own including swim team, swim lessons, river walk club, pool parties and a K-9 Splash for the canine friends.  There are youth sports organizations for baseball, softball, soccer and football, adult softball leagues and track and field events.  Chesterfield Arts offers a full calendar of events including dance and art.  There are also parks that are scattered around the city many of which have play equipment for kids.  Overall,...

In doing some research, I identified data that shows foreclosure rates for each zip code in the Chesterfield, MO area.  Chesterfield has 2 different zip codes so the information is separate for each zip code.   For 63005: The population is 18, 293. The number of households is 6110 The median income is $172,424 The average home value is $559,626.  Foreclosure rates have been on the increase.  In 2005, there was less than 1 foreclosure per 1000 households-only 4 for the whole year.  In 2006, there were 9 for the year. In 2007 there were 20 foreclosures.  In 2008, through the third quarter, there were 43.  For 63017: The population is 45,252. The number of households is 16,572 The median income is $105,916 The average home value is $362,348.  Foreclosure rates have been on the increase.  I...

St. Louis real estate in both 4th quarter of 2008 and first quarter of 2009 had been a bit sluggish.  Just in the past few weeks we are seeing encouraging signs.  We have been doing a lot of listing, but now our listings are starting to sell.  That is what we have been waiting for!!  What we don't understand is why sellers have had such a hard time selling their homes.  They hire experienced professionals who tell them exactly what to do:  Price it right (we even tell them what that probable price is) and great condition.  We tell them how buyers are out there cherry picking the best homes and looking for the best values.  We call it a "Price War and Beauty Pageant".  Really!  That is what is going on.  If the home isn't the perceived best value, it won't sell.  There are so many choice...

After a day of crazy returns and shopping,two of my children and I stopped for a bite to eat at this little Mexican restaurant in Chesterfield, Missouri.  The food was awesome.  The salsa and spicy bean dip were both wonderful.  We ate a whole basket of chips and all of the dip.  We must have been hungry. Stop by and have a bite, they are located off Clarkson Road a little south of Wilson Road in charming Chesterfield, Missouri.

Rock Tops Granite owner, Bob Gasiorowski speaks at a workshop about kitchen remodeling   Chesterfield, MO - Home remodeling contractors in Chesterfield gathered for a local workshop event to network and share tips on various remodeling projects.  One of the special guests invited to demonstrate a kitchen remodeling tip was Bob Gasiorowski, owner of Rock Tops Granite, a natural stone kitchen countertop fabricating company.    Bob's remodeling tip was regarding the sink that goes with a granite kitchen countertop.  Bob said, "The under mount sink is perfect with a granite or natural stone countertop.  They are very popular with their sleek appeal and clean look.  Because they fit under the countertop, you can easily wipe crumbs right into the sink without them becoming caught under the li...

If you are in the market for granite countertops for your home, you may have noticed they can be quite costly. In many cases, the bulk of the cost of a kitchen remodeling job is the granite countertops. This has many people looking for a way to save a few dollars on the granite counter tops they want as well as the work to install them. In many cases, this can be done, but you also need to be careful that you are not the victim of a rip off. Here are some things to look for in a stone countertop company.   Look at a Portfolio   Make sure the company you are considering can do the work they say they can. Ask for pictures and references of jobs they have completed in the past. Make sure those references are real. Give them a call. See what they thought about the job that was done as well ...

My daughter Alisha is having her 20th birthday on November 24.
