Mrs. GarageGuy and I had the opportunity earlier this week to visit with Brendon Barclay, Executive Director of Sustaining Urban Villages.  Along with a score of other adults and kids (mostly homeschoolers…), we had volunteered our morning to help with the construction of an outdoor classroom. The purpose of the outdoor classroom is multi-fold.  In addition to learning about the biology of the forest, it is the perfect setting to learn about the interconnectedness of the environment… and it is even a pleasant place to study math or reading. Previously, during a national 4-H Club event in Atlanta, 50 4-H volunteers had come out to get the project started.  It was amazing to see the difference between the areas that had been cleared of underbrush and deadfall and those that hadn’t been cl...

Furbusters in Tucker Georgia Millie got her Christmas grooming done at Furbusters just before Christmas.  Furbusters is a pet salon and pet hotel on Main street in Tucker.  Millie is an English Springer Spaniel and has been a member of our family since May 2009.  She is about 19 months old and is an absolute delight. Millie's groomers were delightful and of course Millie had a wonderful afternoon at the salon.  I asked to have Millie clipped a bit short for a ESS as I like her to look neat (and she sheds so much!).  We left the fringes on her legs so she looks extra fast when she runs. You can find Furbusters at 2346 Main St. Tucker GA 30084.  Phone: 770-491-8828. http://www.furbusters.com

Appraisals Are Causing Traffic Jams on the Closing Highway The real estate industry is paying the price for past sins in the mortgage loan side of the business.  We all now realize credit was too easy to get and buyers who had no business buying a home were given the opportunity to purchase over priced homes using mortgage loans that could never be paid off. So, the big fix was put in place by UNCLE SAM and now we have the not surprising result of too much government intervention in the mortgage loan process. POINT IN CASE: A Tale fo Two Listings in Tucker Georgia Two very similar homes in the same subdivision went under contract within a few weeks of each other.  House number one was a short sale.  House number two was a plain vanilla listing where the owner wanted to sell his present ...

  I put a lot of miles on my car every year.  Most of them are local miles as I travel around metro Atlanta in my work as a real estate agent on The English Team.  But I also put a lot of highway miles in as I travel to Nashville Tennessee to visit my daughter at Vanderbilt and to Alexandria Virginia to visit my oldest daughter.  We rely on Neal Frentheway at DeKalb Tire to keep us safe in rain, slush and snow. Tim and I are long time customers at DeKalb Tire.  Tim hAs our tires rotated and balanced every 3,000 miles.  This is a free service when you purchase tires at DeKalb Tire.  Tim highly values Neal Frentheway's opinion about tires and safe driving.  This is based on years of buying tires from Neal at DeKalb Tire.  We put a lot of miles on each and every one of our cars and often ...
