The Humble Annual Christmas Parade of Lights is an awesome small town parade that the community looks forward to every year.  This year the date to remember is Tuesday, December 1, at 6:30 PM.  Put a big "Must See the Humble Annual Christmas Parade of Lights" in red on your calendar.  The parade goes right down Main Street.  The theme for this year is The 12 Days of Christmas.  A few added attractions for icing on the cake!  First will be the performance of the Humble & Atascocita High Schools Madrigals at Uptown Park before the parade.  And second is the appearance of that jolly old man himself, Santa Claus, at Uptown Park after the parade.  This year's Humble Annual Christmas Parade of Lights will have "Hall of Fame" Coach Neil Quillin serving as parade grand marshal.

The Humble ISD Cosmetology Program is awesome.  Not only does it provide opportunities for the students but the community benefits with inexpensive cosmetology services.  How does a $7 ladies haircut sound?  Add $2 more for blow dry and style.  The Humble ISD Cosmetology Program helps prepare students for employment right out of high school.  The students generally spend three hours a day preparing for a state license, in lieu of taking an elective or P.E. classes. And where certification in Texas normally requires 1500 training hours, the high school students are only required to complete 1000 hours, due to credit being applied for their other academic classes. The Humble ISD Cosmetology Program is not just fun and games.  The students are also educated on bacteria, bones and the skin....

Last night was the Tasting the Town event at the Humble Civic Center.  And there is no other word except YUMMY that describes our evening.  Event founder, Jennifer Jozwiak of Coffee News, and her team did an amazing job of organization.  It was a fantastic event for the Humble area.  Attendance surpassed expectations. At Tasting the Town, our team sponsored a table.  We set up the table with a large Texas Star, had team brochures for each place setting & got ready to meet some new people.     As the event's attendees made their way around the venue, they'd stop to sit and enjoy their food.  We talked with them, gave out our Your Texas Connection packet of information & had them fill out an entry form for a drawing.  We were giving away four $25 gift cards to the winner's restaurant of c...

I was surfing the blogs on the ‘Rain' looking For Jumbo Stated Loans to compare what is available and what the group I consult for has.  So I decided to at least share with the members of the Rain community this information.

What's Better...Short Sales or Savings? No, this isn't a trick question nor are we opposed to savings - in fact, liquidity is an essential survival strategy that helps investors at all levels ride out tough economic times; however, it is possible to take anything to the extreme including savings.  As Americans across the nation embrace savings for the first time in years, there is a growing need for rational financial reasoning especially when it comes to investments. For years consumers were content to spend money they had not earned then simply make credit card payments or take out a second mortgage. Today all that changed as the rate of savings has gone from literally less than zero to nearly ten percent within the past two years.  While paying down debt and getting one's financial h...
