From Kim

It is the end of the school year, which for anyone with children knows, means the beginning of summer vacation. Instead of writing about summer though, I want to take this time to talk about something significantly more important, that being – teachers. I am so blessed to be in a wonderful school district (

With so much rain pouring and flooding the streets, creeks, and rivers this year in Houston and all over Texas, driving can be a nightmare around the city with a real possibility for your car to get stalled when the water levels are too high. Now more than ever we have to rely on technology

THE EMPTY NEST

As the school year comes to a close, many of you might be facing a soon to be empty nest. Oh that bittersweet phrase “empty nest.” It’s really funny because during my daughter’s junior high years, I really felt ready for the days of no kids at home to come quickly!!! However, I will never

Cactus in Bloom

As I was walking out the door headed to work this morning, Ellen asked me to come to the back yard before I left. Upon opening the back door, I knew why. Her Cactus were in spectacular bloom. From one Cactus, acquired several years ago from the “Many Stones” store in Study Butte, she has

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is this Thursday. As the day approaches, I wonder how many out there know the true meaning behind the celebration.  Sure, most Americans love to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!  But to us, it is mostly a good excuse to eat some Mexican food and down a few margaritas.  AND, I’m willing to

From John Scott

Summer is almost here, and with summertime comes all those fond memories of warmer weather, water gun fights, no school, staying up late and just doing fun stuff until you get bored. With summer comes vacation time, time off to recharge and reengage. As a grandparent I look forward to spending some quality time with

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

I wrote a blog in February of this year, explaining the importance of maintaining investments during a troubled market. I stated that if you had a 401K, IRA, mutual fund, etc., that you should be careful of not restructuring while the market was down. When you do this you are only solidifying your loss. Since

Have some free time this weekend? If yes, then saddle up the horses & head to the Hill Country for a day trip. I recommend an early morning hike to the top of Enchanted Rock – a giant pink granite dome just a short drive from Fredericksburg. The hike is fairly easy. It’s a beautiful

South by Southwest

South by Southwest in Austin is for locals, a double edged sword. The traffic is a nightmare, but the commerce and profits brought in are outstanding for the city. For someone like me visiting from Houston, or anywhere else out of town, it is a wonderful musical distraction. Houston is close enough to just spend

From Matilde

This past weekend was Easter.  Sunday morning we loaded up the kids and headed to the park.  There we met a few of our other family members, barbecued and hid tons of eggs for the kids to find.  I am sure glad we didn’t get rained on.  It turned out to be a beautiful day.

Did you know

Did you know…. Before copiers were invented, typist would use carbon paper to make copies. As you can imagine, the copies weren’t very clean and the quality was low. Copy machines have changed the way we work, do business, and produce on a day-to-day basis. Fortunately, there were innovative thinkers in the late 1800’s that
