Boerne, Texas is located about 20 minutes West of Loop 1604 (San Antonio, TX).  Known for it's charming antique, resale, and boutique store, Boerne epitomizes GREEN when it comes to not scraping to rebuild.  They take the existing architecture and work with it.  That being said, it's a great  place to hold a GREEN living expo.  This is their 1st event of this type and I have already bought a booth space.  If you are in the area and want to learn more about green living, see great architecture, and step back in time for a day, come find me! When:  Saturday, September 17, 2011 Where:  Boerne, Texas - Main Plaza Time:  11:00 am-10:30 pm Farmers Market- 11:00am-5:00pm Hill Country Farmers Market Association will relocate their Leon Springs Market to Main Plaza for this event!

Today I visited a number of "preferred builders" to produce a video series of my favorite builders and communities.  Why not?  Builders have their "preferred Realtors."  To get started I had to evaluate which builders and communities to feature, which made me think through green community criteria. Maybe by reading this you too will be inspired to make videos, know your communities, think about quality of life, and quality of construction. (Videos will be uploaded Friday to my weekly green newsletter blog) COMMUNITY NATURAL ENVIRONMENT & AESTHETICS I am not a tree hugger, nor am I afraid of progress.  It's just simply about management of natural resources. There are communities that I know who strive to prevent growth and businesses and having worked in commercial development for many y...

Berges Fest began as a simple ice cream social in 1967, but since it has grown into a 3 day weekend extravaganza complete with a Beauty Contest, Lawn Mower & Dautschund races, egg toss contest, carnival rides, dances, bands, watermelon eating contest and much, much more.   The Lions Club and the Boerne Chamber of Commerce felt that Boerne really needed an annual city-sponsored event, like Poteet Stawberry Festival or Wurst Fest in New Braunfels.  With $500 and a few volunteers Berges Fest was born and has since been celebrated every Father's Day weekend.  The first Berges Fest had a free street dance, a Mexican Food booth and music by the Boerne Village Band and the U.S. Air Force Band.  The Miss Berges Fest competition was held on Friday night with the winner announced the next day. An...

 Ummm Dinner      So Good                                 Love and hate them at the same time? Ummmm is that possible? Most of you know Ceil and I love to work outside. Our vegetable garden and flowers are in a designated area of our landscape because the whitetail deer love us. Yes, they absolutely love us and our vegetable garden and flowers. When we come out to work in the garden they appear from out of the blue, stand at the fence and watch every move. If we accidently leave the gate open they will walk right in and devour eveything in sight. Here are a few things you could try to help keep them out. Now if they are really hungary just pray. 1.  Try human hair under chicken wire around your plants. Deer do not like either.2.  It is said if you place coyote urine around your plants, ...

Wagyu Beef ..  More to Help You Make Healthy Choices Often people get confused ....so we wanted to make it clear of what you are buying and eating  !!  So you can make clear and good choices for you and your family . "The term "natural" means only that no additives or preservatives were introduced after the meat or poultry was processed. (And, in fact, certain sodium-based broths can be added to poultry and pork and still be labeled "natural.") The term "natural" is often confused with "naturally raised," a term that, according to the USDA, means the animals were not given antibiotics, growth hormones or animal by-products." Our Wagyu Beef and Texas Better Beef  are  " Naturally Raised "     Good clean water Growing up on the ranch and grazing on pastures in Texas so you know the histor...
