Just wanted to let those who might be interested that the krewe of bilge has rescheduled their parade for next Saturday.  They were going to parade through Eden Isles yesterday but cancelled due to inclement weather.  They start at the marina and end at the dock.  Plenty of fun to be had.

I have been watching the housing news like an old dog next to a fire.  This reminds me of quite a few clients I have encountered over the past couple of months.  They all want a house but they have zero money to put down and can't pay more each month than they are already paying.  They also want ...

As I ride around my home town of Slidell I am still amazed at the number of for sale signs I see.  When I go to the listing agents website half the time there are zero pictures or references about the house I am looking for.  You work hard enough to get a listing and you just ignore one of the ea...
