Titusville, FL Real Estate News

Today I had lunch (again) at Quillen's Taco shack, located at 1090 Garden Street in Titusville, Florida.  Funny I was on my way to watch the Final (?) launch of the Space Atlantis on a resupply mission to the International Space Station.  Quillans, the home of the absolute best and freshest tacos on the space coast of Florida, did not disappoint me again today.  The place was jammed with Shuttle Launch visitors, but obviously the Quillen's prepared in advance for the rush of customers coming into town for the launch. Their facebook pae is here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=220816240506#!/group.php?gid=220816240506 Here is whare they are located. At Quillens the menu is diverse, from the freshest and crispest Taco's (what else), to soft taco's to Local High School (Terrior and W...

If the ceiling  and walls could talk in this 120 year old Kitchen ceiling Brevard County, Fl.   It would have some interesting stories to tell in deed. The City of Titusville, Florida. Originally called "Sand Point," until Confederate Colonel Henry T. Titus arrived in 1867 with the intention to build a town on land owned by his wife, Mary Hopkins Titus, daughter of a prominent planter from Darien, Georgia. He laid out roads and in 1870 erected The Titus House (This house is one block from this project that I'm working on),  a large 1-story hotel next to a Bar (establishment)saloon. He also donated land for 4 churches and a courthouse, the latter an effort to get the town designated as county seat. The community was named "Titusville" in 1873. It would be incorporated as a city in 1887, ...

On my way to Clermont to ride the Horrible Hundred with our ZMotion cycling team, I convinced my friend to stop by Titusville for her first Tandem Skydiving Jump. I've done mine in Oahu Hawaii last September and as my instructor said, it is really addictive and so much fun. In Hawaii I got the full video/pictures package, at this time in Florida, I was more concerned about making sure Roccio was having fun at her jump, and didn't really care for having my video...but, after all, someone told me that my instructor was actually one of the best videoman's and a Tandem Master. So, if you ever consider skydiving in Florida, ask to jump with Dean O'Flaherty. Besides having over 17,000 jumps and 18 years of experience, he made me feel very comfortable and at easy. The jump was perfect and fun....

Kids seem to have a unique perspective on the things adults say and expect of them.  Nowhere is this more evident than the relationship between teacher and student.  Without further ado these should bring a smile to your face as you remember your own school days or see your own kids reflected in these quips :-)   Kids Are Quick ____________________________________ TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America .

It's so easy to get all wrapped up with our own lives, jobs, families and responsibilities.  This is just a story about someone who took the time to do a small kindness for a stranger.  His act of kindness puts this person in the category of "ANGEL".  You might want to grab a tissue or two, as you go along for..... .....THE CAB RIDETwenty years ago, I drove a cab for a living. When I arrived at 2:30 a.m., the building was dark except for a single light in a ground floor window. Under these circumstances, many drivers would just honk once or twice, wait a minute, then drive away.But I had seen too many impoverished people who depended on taxis as their only means of transportation. Unless a situation smelled of danger, I always went to the door. This passengermight be someone who needs ...

What follows are actual sentences that appeared in church bulletins or were announced during church services.  Some of these are funny enough to bring the house down, including the House of Christ.  So here's a little levity to get your weekend started, may it be filled with friends and merriment.  Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend :-) The Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals. The sermon this morning: 'Jesus Walks on Water.' The sermon tonight: 'Searching for Jesus.' Our youth basketball team is back in action Wednesday at 8 PM in the recreation hall. Come out and watch us kill Christ the King. Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.
