 It's spreading like a cancer...in New Braunfels & throughout the county-by Ceil Winters It's spreading like a cancer...in New Braunfels & throughout the county-by Ceil Winters  Robbery in New Braunfels at a local bakery and they did't even take donuts. What we've seen happen in the past year across this country deserves all of our attention. Have you noticed every time you turn on the radio or television the first thing you hear and see is another robbery? Your home, a convenience store, a bank, someone walking out from shopping at the mall. And now in our little town of New Braunfels Texas someone robbed the local bakery. In talking with some of our neighbors they think it is the economy.  Some think it is a combination of the economy and drugs. Is this the way it is going to be from ...

9-12-2009  I've been watching some television today as I was curious to see the Tea Party and March to Washington D.C.  9-13-09 I didn't post yesterday's blog so I'm adding to it with this paragraph. This past year has been difficult for all of us. We have seen unemployment rise, and as I type this continue to rise at an alarming rate, home values go down and the stock market in disarray. Americans voicing their opinion over the deficit and costly healthcare proposals. Congress arguing amongst themselves. This is just an example of some of the things we see and hear on a daily basis. If I were a drinking person it would drive me to drink.                                                                What are we going to do?     These are my personal thoughts as I watched some of the T...

                Is this the right time for another program?                                                                              Where have I been? I keep seeing this on the web but haven't paid much attention until today when I clicked on several advertisement.OK encouraging folks to return to school; that is good. But......why should we the tax payer pay for this? They say the country is almost bankrupt. In my opinion I don't think this is the time to start another program.                                           President Obama will give you $2,500 a year to go to schoolThe Obama administration's stimulus bill is designed to get the economy moving again.

My first attempt at a video blog...I think it went well!Last week I attended a webinar that my company put on about building your real estate business using video blog and I decided to give it a shot.  I watched what other agents were doing online and last week while at our board of REALTORS golf tournament, I decided to hand my Flip video camera over to my 12 year old son and told him to point it at me with the green in the background and I did a two minute video blog about TREPAC and the Landa Park golf course.  I FlipShared it, added some credits and uploaded to my new YouTube Channel that is for my new venture in Video Blogging.Check it out: I am kind of digging this new approach to blogging!I am excited about my next installment!  Perhaps I can become a YouTube sensation!

  REMEMBERING MIKE CARL...REALTOR AND FRIEND. Recently our REALTOR community was rocked by the unexpected passing of our good friend and fellow agent, Mike Carl.  Mike and his wife Kathy were such a big part of real estate in Comal County.  They both served the real estate industry selflessly and were always putting others first.  No matter how busy they were, they always had time to share and give.  There is much to be learned from both of them.  Mike left us quickly and unexpectedly this month and one of the hardest things we have had to face was him not being at the golf course for our TREPAC golf tournament this year.  We always looked forward to pulling up to the hole that he and Kathy always sponsored.  This year we knew we would face that hole without Mike's presence and for me p...

  NBCLAR SUPPORTS TREPAC WITH ANNUAL "FUN"DRAISER!!! Every August in the extreme Texas heat the real estate professionals, affiliates and friends gather in New Braunfels, Texas for an all day, fun-filled series of events all for one purpose...to raise much needed funds for TREPAC (Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee).  As a former TREPAC chairman and retired PAC Trustee, this cause is very near and dear to my heart.  You see, I am not just a Texas REALTOR, but I have a passion for protecting the private property rights of my fellow Texans and because of TREPAC I have already been a part of several REALTOR victories in my community.   USUALLY I GOLF EVERY YEAR...but this year to 101 degree high that has been promised us and my common sense is keeping me from participating in tha...

Good things coming together at Gruene Hall in Gruene, Texas     I wrote about this great place August 20th of last year (it just happened to be my very first post!)  You can read it here, It's Green in Gruene, Texas   Today, one of my good friends, Jim Flynn, who is outstanding commercial photographer posted a link on FACEBOOK that reminded me that I needed to write again about Gruene Hall.  Now, I've know Jim and his family since they moved from Boston to "live on the range" in Texas!  They have totally immersed themselves into our great town of New Braunfels, Texas and I like how they just jumped in with two feet and haven't stopped participating since!     I know, I know...it sounds like I have really gotten off my topic right?  Not so.    See everybody in New Braunfels loves Gruene ...
