I just read: Susan Mangigian, West Chester PA Realtor RE/MAX Preferred, ABR post this morning about her THANKFUL THURSDAY message.   I thought it was great and of course had to follow suit! Susan has a lot to be thankful for this morning.  I may not go that far but to offer a few items. Mine are: I'm am thankful that even though the schools are closed (because of swine flu) that my family and I are making lemonade out of lemons and will be leaving town tomorrow to spend 3 days at the beach.  I thought this was an opportunity to spend a little extra time with my kids!  I can't wait.  And that makes me thankful.  Thankful for a little extra "fun" time with them. I'm also thankful this morning to my wonderful business partner (but most importantly, my sister) Kristin, who will stay behind ...

I live in Comal County in New Braunfels, Texas.  They school districts closed all of the schools in Comal County as well as Guadalupe County (which is a good number cities) because of the "swine flu".  This announcement happened last night around 9p.m. and the children will be out of school until May 11, 2009!! So far in Comal County there is one Teacher and 2 students that have this strain of flu.  There have been up to a number of 142 others that have been tested (new testing sites have been set up in Austin so hopefully results will be in sooner than shipping out to different states) So far 18 confirmed cases in Texas. 8 of them are in the neighboring county, Guadalupe. 1 death in Houston of a 22 month old child.   My children think that they are getting an "extra" spring break and w...

                       Photo of a Sears & Robuck in Key West Florida back in Yesteryear! Wow, I remember Sears & Robuck and Co. do you ? When............we ordered through a catalog all the furniture and necessities for our first born through a catalog and had to pick it up at the store!!!! Most of our clothes and even some folks ordered their home through a catalogue? We would go to the Sears Catalogue Dept., stand and browse the catalogue and place our order.  How times have changed....keep reading  Today, in the current age of technology, instead of a catalog that I had to go to the store to look at, I can go online, put in the subject and hundreds of online catalogs come up, I can order and have my order delivered to my home, and pay for it with a piece of plastic!   I don't recall...

     I had the pleasure of playing the Bandit golf course in New Braunfels, Texas.  At first viewing, the course and layout is stunning!  The condition of the course is very well taken care of, however you do have to bring your "A" game, and your best putting stroke, the greens are quick.  From the first hole to the last, you are challenged with the shot placement accompanied with beautiful landscaped views, layed out by nature and homes.  The course truly lives up to the name "Bandit" as it seemed to steal a good amount of golf balls from my bag!  I will definitely plot revenge on this course, and book a tee time again here in the near future.   The homes surrounding the course range from decent to lavish in prices and size.  This area truly has a home for all walks of living comforts...

The official start of spring is just a week away. Like myself I'm sure many are happy to see the end of winter.                                                                                                            Ceil loves Marigolds to put in the flower beds but also plants in the garden for color and  to bring in the birds and butterflies. Now that we have had some much needed moisture it is time for us to take a look at a "re-do" in our landscape. Maybe a  new plant or some spring flowers. It is time to think about plants, gardening and lawn clean-up.I found a new website yardcare.com that would be helpful. Whether you are a long time home owner, or a "first time home owner" your lawn is a great opportunity to show off your landscape skills and help improve the looks of your ho...

I live in South Texas, specifically in New Braunfels, Texas. According to our weatherman we haven't had rain in like 18 months! Our lakes, rivers and aquifer are all REALLY low and we had already implemented water restrictions. I was secretly dreading what was going to happen this Summer with no rain? Water restrictions galore... but alas, someone was thinking of us this morning and sent a little something our way. I laugh because my neighbor (from Boston, has lived in Texas 8 months now) came to pick up the kids for the carpool this morning and said, "I have never lived in a place where it rains and EVERYONE has a smile." Well Jim, welcome to Texas! So, in my backyard we have what is a "dry creek" that runs the back of the property...notice I said DRY CREEK. This is what I woke up to ...

Add one more to the list of store openings in New Braunfels TX.      This is one nice store, I went at night so didn't get to take a Photograph. JC Penney Company opened a new store in New Braunfels on March 6 at Town Center at Creekside, located at Hwy. 306 and I-35. This is a growing area for retail stores. JC Penney's being located along side the new Target with many more new stores scheduled for openings before year end. This is great news for New Braunfels.

                                    Have you noticed the Texas Mountain Laurel are Blooming? If you are new to this area you will definitely notice the beautiful trees or shrubs that are blooming with  purplish flowers hanging in clusters. The smell is unusual and very sweet, some say it makes you think of the penny purple bubble gum we use to buy when we were kids. The Mountain Laurel are native to this area and very hardy. They take very little water and best of all the deer will leave them alone. Therefore, this is definitely a shrub or let it grow into a tree that you will want to put into your landscape. They really take very little care. Every spring and throughout the summer they will drop pods that when open have a red, hard seed. You can scratch the surface on the concrete and ...

Being the Texan that I am, I came across some Cowboy Proverbs I thought appropriate to share being that times are a little tough. Maybe one may strike a nerve and get you to thinking about life and how far we have come and how far we have to go. I particularly like the last one "If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging." Whew! Those are some very serious words...some folks have dug in pretty deep, now they need to start climbing out and up that hill. Just remember, each day is brand new sunrise, so make each day count.                          COWBOY PROVERBS Don't judge people by their relatives. Don't interfere with something that ain't bothering you none. Nature gave us all something to fall back on, and sooner or later we all land flat on it. The quickes...

By now we may all have them - What is the correct way to dispose of them? Does anyone really know? Tell us please if you know.....Comal County Texas This is Interesting - They tell you what to do if you break a CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lamp) but leave you hanging exactly "where" to dispose of the CFL (Light bulb). Seems to me if you put out for your regular trash pick up that would not be good. So we save the broken or burned out CFL's until we have a bag full and deliver where? ? ?
