This is something I have never thought about and decided to send this on. Whether your out showing homes, walking across the parking lot, coming out of the grocery store, inspecting a home or getting ready to go to bed at night. Think Keys & Alarm. A simple safety feature at your finger tips. I liked this reminder:PUT YOUR CAR KEYS BESIDE YOUR BED AT NIGHTNext time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain.. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when som...

          Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que, Llano, Texas and now in New Braunfels, Texas (Loop 337) Cooper's engages in two practices that some consider antithetical to the state's trademark style: direct-heat cooking that's dangerously close to grilling, and saucing. But this cowboy-style barbecue spot breaks the rules proudly, cooking meat about two feet from mesquite coals and then finishing it over low heat until you step up to the outdoor pits and point to what you want: extra-thick pork chops, sirloin, or beef ribs. The mesquite flavor is what makes the BBQ, it is excellent. Cooper's in one of the best places to eat good out Texas BBQ in Texas. If you ever get over to New Braunfels (my stomping grounds) be sure to stop by and visit Cooper's.                                        ...

   First item to place on your 2009 calendar is:     Regular Maintenance Home Inspection                                                                Things To Do Schedule your home inspection; whether you are buyer, seller or new home construction. This is recommended  for regular home maintenance. A professional inspector may spot some items that need attention. It's like getting your oil changed on a regular basis, or your yearly dental check or medical check-up. Your home should have a yearly inspection by a professional. Example: We just had our chimney cleaned and inspected   Why?   Regular maintenance check-up.  I didn't want to spend the $110.00 Christmas week but I did. It's part of the cost of maintaining your home. I sure would not want to deal with a house fire because I f...

I always begin to take down and put away on New Year's Day. Today is New Year's Day 2009. I have two beautiful Poinsettias, ONE LARGE AND ONE SMALL. The Ponsettias are the prettiest I have seen in a few years and I think I am going to give them a helping hand and let them live at our house.  Here is some information I wish I had when I first received my Poinsettias; this is  some information that I found on E-How that is helpful. When You First Bring Your Poinsettia HomeLight - Place it near a sunny window. South, east or west facing windows are preferable to a north facing window. Poinsettias are tropicals and will appreciate as much direct sunlight as you can provide. Heat - To keep the poinsettia in bloom as long as possible, maintain a temperature of 65 - 75 degrees F. during the da...

I recently helped a first time home buyer purchase a beautiful new home in Oak Run Subdivision in New Braunfels, Texas.  This young couple had been saving for some time and were very excited that their new purchase was such a stately home in beautiful New Braunfels.   I was so excited for them.   Because actually they got a great deal.  Being that the house was a new Perry Home, it was ready to move into!  The deals are still out there.  They got a great price from the Builder with some great incentives.  They used the Builders' Lender and received even more incentives and then they got an AWESOME interest rate.   Can you believe?  It's true.   Many people are out there thinking that this is "not the right time" to be making that investment into real estate.  I completely disagree with ...

Burrr... It was a chilly morning here in New Braunfels, Texas...  35 degrees when I left to come to work.  Yesterday the high was like in the late 70's early 80's (so warm in fact that I thought I had too many clothes on at lunch time!)....then the night came and the wind started whipping and then the rain came.   I woke up this morning to find the first little bit of ice, snow droppings on my new deck.... just thought I would share.   The funny part is that in South Texas you never know what your day will bring.  You could wear shorts during the afternoon and a winter wool jacket by the evening!   I love it!   outside my back door   hilarious my sons' flip flops outside the door!   and here is my Sago Palm....wandering "what the hell"!   Hope you enjoyed your morning where ever you wer...

Because I needed one more thing to accomplish.   My husband and I have been busy watching this going up in our back yard.     the back of my house   a work in progress                    The final project!   the sun rising this morning   geez, how beautiful is that view?   The rest of this post is a major plug for the guy that built this beautiful thing! The work was done by Jason Svoboda who owns Lone Start Fence and Landscaping 210-421-6975.  I couldn't of been happier with the workmanship, performance, attitude and professionalism of Jason.  It's obvious that even an untrained eye (such as myself) can see the quality of workmanship that went into making this puppy.  I said that I wanted a big deck and he asked me all of the right questions.  His attention to detail (my ideas vs. his ...

Plants - Pipes - Pets                    Three Little Reminders that begin with P  Plants -Be sure to bring your plants in and keep watered on these cold days and nights. If you take care of them they will be ready to be put back outside this spring.  Pipes - Yes, I did. Wrap outside faucets or hose bibs. Do this if you don't have a separate valve to turn off outside faucets. (Also remember to disconnect garden hoses.) Use newspaper or rags covered with plastic, fiberglass or molded foam insulating covers to wrap the faucet. (Molded foam insulating covers are available at plumbing and hardware stores, Home Depot, Lowe's , Walmart.)Drain in-ground sprinkler systems. If you have a swimming pool be sure to winterize your pool.  Pets - Yes, I did   Brutus has a Big Dog House, insulated and ...

I just finished watching the Endeavour launch and what a magnificent sight. Every time I watch one of these shuttles launch I am amazed and glad to have the opportunity to sit in my living room and watch. They were concerned about a faulty latch up until the last minute but made the decision to go ahead with the launchof The Endeavour.                                                                   The Endeavour                                                         For your information: Endeavour is poised to blast off from its seaside launch pad here at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) on Nov. 14 at 7:55 p.m. EST (0055 Nov. 15 GMT) on a busy mission to prime the station for larger, six-person crews Mission STS-126 Orbiter: Endeavour Mission: STS-126 Primary Payload: Multi-Purpose ...

What does all this mean and why are we excited you ask? More jobs, More money into Comal County economy. These two giants would not be doing this if they didn't think this area of Texas would be shrinking.....No, No, No                           WE ARE GROWING. It's the good fortune once again for Comal County and New Braunfels Texas with Walmart and Ashley Furniture expanding the Distribution Centers.  When you see them rolling out onto Interstate 35 you know they are moving furniture to other areas.             Ashley Furniture recently unveiled plans to add to its distribution center also located on I-35.in New Braunfels, Texas. This also means adding more jobs to the local economy. Ashley needs a larger facility because of a planned expansion in the South Texas  Walmart distribution...

I had quite an experience this week that I wanted to share with you and will also give you a couple tips that may help when you are showing a home to a potential client. If you are the seller I suggest you follow the tips I posted below. First of all the front door was black...which you don't always see that many black doors. The outside still had Halloween decorations up which is OK. I had a strange feeling this was not going to be a normal home inspection (it was just a gut feeling). As I opened the front door I hear....Squeak, Squeak and the wider I opened the door the more it Squeaked. The curtains were drawn and I was looking for the light switch. Once I found the light switch my racing heart slowed a little. I can tell you...every door in that entire house Squeaked. Every door was...
