This morning we woke up to lightening, thunder and tons of rain!  South Texas needs this rain desperately.  My son and I jumped in the car so I could run to the office to pick up the last bit of a project that I am working on (yes, a REALTORS job is never done). This is what we ran into!  p.s. No we didn't cross like some stupid guy that risked the Fire Departments' Crew and truck at another crossing that we passed! Standing so close to something so powerful was interesting.  You could hear the rush of the water flowing over the road and into the "DRY" creek.  Watch out for mother nature!

2009 Comal County Fair in New Braunfels Texas Today we are headed out to the Comal County Fair Parade in New Braunfels Texas.  We attend this event every year, but this year is particularly special because my son who plays trombone in the Mountain Valley Middle School Mighty Hawk Band and this is his first parade to march in.  Jordan made Honors Band this year which is the highest level band one can make in middle school.  So we will gather along San Antonio Street in New Braunfels this morning for the annual Comal County Fair Parade.

 It's spreading like a cancer...in New Braunfels & throughout the county-by Ceil Winters It's spreading like a cancer...in New Braunfels & throughout the county-by Ceil Winters  Robbery in New Braunfels at a local bakery and they did't even take donuts. What we've seen happen in the past year across this country deserves all of our attention. Have you noticed every time you turn on the radio or television the first thing you hear and see is another robbery? Your home, a convenience store, a bank, someone walking out from shopping at the mall. And now in our little town of New Braunfels Texas someone robbed the local bakery. In talking with some of our neighbors they think it is the economy.  Some think it is a combination of the economy and drugs. Is this the way it is going to be from ...

9-12-2009  I've been watching some television today as I was curious to see the Tea Party and March to Washington D.C.  9-13-09 I didn't post yesterday's blog so I'm adding to it with this paragraph. This past year has been difficult for all of us. We have seen unemployment rise, and as I type this continue to rise at an alarming rate, home values go down and the stock market in disarray. Americans voicing their opinion over the deficit and costly healthcare proposals. Congress arguing amongst themselves. This is just an example of some of the things we see and hear on a daily basis. If I were a drinking person it would drive me to drink.                                                                What are we going to do?     These are my personal thoughts as I watched some of the T...

                Is this the right time for another program?                                                                              Where have I been? I keep seeing this on the web but haven't paid much attention until today when I clicked on several advertisement.OK encouraging folks to return to school; that is good. But......why should we the tax payer pay for this? They say the country is almost bankrupt. In my opinion I don't think this is the time to start another program.                                           President Obama will give you $2,500 a year to go to schoolThe Obama administration's stimulus bill is designed to get the economy moving again.
