Although most of us here in San Antonio knew our market had not been hit as bad as other areas of the country, we were also quick to acknowledge that things were not moving as well as they were 12-24 months ago.

More than 10 years (or so) ago, many people I talked to didn't know where Medina Lake was. Sure they had heard of Canyon Lake in the North Central Hill Country, known for it's clear waters, healthy depths and water sporting activity. But Medina Lake was relatively quiet in comparison.However our ...

Our family has gone "organic"! Don't get me wrong, we still enjoy a bowl of Haagen Daas occasionally, and the kids can't seem to give up hot dogs and the very occasional Happy Meal (which I loved when I was little too), but overall, we are trying to make better choices about what we put in our bo...
