While it is only whispered among blog posters, the undisputed King of Active Rain members is Virginia-Washington, D.C. Re/Max Realtor, Brian Block. Earlier this year, he got a call from one of his Re/Max colleagues, Terry Rudman.  "Do you have a contact in Dallas who I can trust to help my daughter buy a condo?" she asked him. Brian recommended me.  What a compliment.  Terry did what every mom should do.  She called and talked to me to be sure that from my voice and answers, Brian had given her good advice.  (She used her very authoritative school teacher voice, probably to spook me into spilling the beans if there were any to spill.)

Tuesday night, October 7th, the residents of the Midway Meadows subdivision in Addison Texas congregated at Dome park to celebrate National Night Out.  Thanks to Sam's Club, ice cream and water was available.  The Locked Out Comedy troupe performed.  Meatball sandwiches (yum!) were provided by Jane and Franceso Secchi, owners of Ferrari's restaurant. Addison police and firemen joined us, as well as Mayor Joe Chow and council members Greg Hirsch, Todd Meier and Roger Mellow.  Our city manager, police chief and fire chief were there, too. A big THANK YOU to Barbara Hirsch, who organized the event! Here are a few photos from the event.

Oktoberfest is always a fun celebration in Addison TX.  Tons of food and music and entertainment for the entire family.  Yes, this started yesterday, but being a Thursday, I didn't announce it.  Friday and Saturday are usually the best days to go, and even though it was free on Thursday, admission is only $5. There are going to be many roads closed due to the high influx of traffic and such, so you might want to look at this page first to make sure you don't end up in circles trying to find your way around on closed roads. Come early, stay late, drink some good, WARM, imported beer... be safe!

Right downstairs from The Melting Pot restaurant at 4900 Belt Line Road in Addison Texas, and due north of the Thai Orchid, there is a brand new Dunkin' Donuts location! And it's now open! (The photos were taken yesterday.) I've never been a Crispy Creme fan, but give me a DD bavarian creme donut and I'll be your friend for life! If your sweet tooth causes you to want to relocate close by, call me to help find you an Addison abode!
