  IS THE MARKET GOING UP OR IS THE MARKET GOING DOWN? It depends. It depends on what market statistics you are looking at whether the title can read Market Recovery or Market Decline. Is there a real estate recovery or is this just a blip in the radar of a longer cycle that we are still on the downside of? For the 7th month, home prices of nondistressed properties have declined, according to Inman News. On the other hand, Pending Sales are up in March, an indicator of a real estate recovery, according to the National Associaiton of Realtors. The index now is 111, and 100 or above is considered a healthy real estate market. The index in March 2011 was 89. The index right now is what it was in 2001 before the market started breaking out. But the public is wary, and just a few days ago a S...

Kirkin of the Tartan This Sunday, April 22, at 5:00 PM, St. Michaels and All Angels Anglican Church will hold a Kirkin of the Tartan. The St. Andrews Society and the Clay Pipes and Drums will join them for this historic service.   There are varying stories as to the origins of this Service, one dating back to the 1700s during religious persecution and one giving the Reverend Peter Marshall credit, who was Chaplain to the Senate and the subject of the book A Man Called Peter. It is said that he was trying to encourage Scottish people during World War II to fight for England. We think this is going to be a very special service and a blessing to many. Come join St. Michaels and All Angels for the Kirkin of the Tartan this Sunday, especially if you are of Scottish descent!  Sunday, April 22...

David Popoff's post on Going Green inspired me to show you how we are using organic weed prevention in our Eagle Harbor garden and eliminating the need to spray this summer. Just rake the ground to clear away any old mulch. You can move it over to one side and actually use it as a 'base' below the new mulch. Add organic fertilizers like lime, bone meal, and milorganite. We have a special recipe from Philips Hardware for our roses, which has a great mix of organic ingredients guaranteed to nourish our plants without giving them a chemical shock.  Then lay newspaper down, overlapping the sides and trimming around any curves in the flower bed. We are using 4 sheets thick most places. The upper left hand corner is 2 sheets thick - an experiment to see how quickly it disintegrates. Next, wet...

Speechless Sunday - Island Life Grill You just had to be there. Last night we ate one of the best Caesar salads we have ever tasted. This is less than half the portion because I had eaten some before I remembered to take the photo. Frank and I split it, along with a Coconut Shriimp appetizer. Everything was yummy! I am very picky about my Caesar dressing and asked them to bring a sample before I would order it. It passed with flying colors! This is the second time I have dined at Island Life Grill and each time the food and atmosphere have been excellent. If you're looking for an upscale restaurant close to home, head over to Island Life Grill in Fleming Island Plantation at 2445 Plantation Center Dr., phone 904-215-4243.
