Definitely a place you will want to add to y'all Bucket List... Located in central Texas, the tiny town of Round Top becomes an antiques mecca! Dealers from all over the county descend upon this quaint, adorable place. Dotted with historic farmhouses the gentle hillsides become an antique tent city. Twice a year, this show transforms the quiet town into a bustling collection of vendors and visitors. Typically the Spring show occurs at the end of March through the first week of April. The Fall show happens in late October through the first of November. Before you go, you should take note of the following: 1. This show is comprised of many different shows all over the area. Therefore, it is important to go with a veteran who knows the ropes. Where to park, where to eat, etc. 2. Understand...

Today is the official day of the beginning of Chinese New Year, Sunday January 22nd, 2023 and culminates on February 5th, 2023. The Lantern Festival will take place on February 5th and everyone, regardless of age or gender goes out in the streets to celebrate. It is the time for socializing and freedom. It is also a time reserved for families.       There’s more to the festival than lanterns. One important event is the Dragon dance which has a history almost as long as Chinese culture itself. My granddaughter, Beautiful Beckett, is in a Mandarin Chinese Immersion program in her elementary school and they put on a Dragon dance for her school. I wish I had footage of their performance.     This year is the year of the Rabbit, the fourth of all zodiac animals. Legend has it the Rabbit was...

 Another M. D. Faith real estate photo from around 1979. Searcy AR As I began two other blogs,  M. D. Faith was one of the early real estate brokers in Searcy AR.  He and his wife have both passed and their home on Pleasure Street has just sold.  An estate sale was held and I dropped by.  There was an envelop with negatives in it from pictures made by him for his real estate sales or for his pleasure.  I have a friend who was able to print the pictures from the negatives (I returned the negatives to the heirs) and this is another one of the delightful pictures.This one is still standing and is located at the corner of Beebe-Capps Expressway and Country Club Road.  It houses a business that is still successfully operating and still looks about the same.  AND!  The info at the court house...

There hasn't been any snow to speak of in the DC metro area, but that doesn't mean it isn't skiing to the west of us in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and western Maryland.  There are lots of reasons to try cross country skiing from the fact that it is easier to start than down hill skiing, it gets you outside in the winter, it is healthy and it improves your balance.  If you are thinking of getting out into nature this winter, then cross country skiing might be perfect for you!   Here are a few places to try Blue Knob, Claysburg, Pa. blueknob.comThe 6-plus miles of trails start on a “gently sloping” golf course, then head into the woods. Savage River Lodge, Frostburg, Md. savageriverlodge.comThe resort has 14 miles of trails. You can take the steep, 2-mile dirt road into the ski area for...

Five New Year Resolutions for Your Home A new year is often a time you are thinking about changes you want to make. You may consider personal, financial, and other lifestyle adjustments, but what about your living space? Changes to your home may be necessary to refresh and renew it to increase safety and comfort and make you feel happier while also saving you money. A major renovation is an option, although there are some changes you can do cheaply and easily yourself without needing professional labor. The first step is to assess what needs to be done. It could be you are tired of looking at the same color and décor of a room and may want to redecorate. Upon closer inspection, you may realize that you need to repair, replace or even update. If you know you need to make changes but don...

The best and most fun phone call I get from somebody considering The Villages is when they say we are looking for a 3 bedroom 2 bath home generally what is the price.  There probably is at lease 200 3/2 homes for sale in The Villages as low as $229,000 and the highest priced 3/2 $1,775,000.  It’s time to dive into Lifestyle, why are you considering moving to The Villages?  I know the weather could be a factor but what else is driving your desire to live here?  Golf, Pickleball, Swimming, Dancing, Social Clubs, Close to Disney?I had a buyer I worked with for months before they came to The Villages, sent them maps, shared listings and the time came for their visit.  I had lined up a few homes and villas in their price range.  First thing is they fell in love with the villas which wasn’t o...

Austin’s City Watershed Protection Department is hosting a student video contest to promote safe driving and saving lives. It’s the first Flood Safety Awareness Video Contest for all Austin-area students in grades 6-12.   Driving through flooded roads in Austin is the leading cause of deaths during a flash flood. It not only put’s the drivers’ lives at risk, but also the lives of passengers and emergency responders. Believe it or not Austin is in the heart of Flash Flood Alley.The plan is for the students to create their own short (30 second) public service announcement, educating drivers to “Turn Around Don’t Drown!” when they encounter water covering the road. Videos can now be submitted through March 31st, so there is time to get your entry in. So what do the students win? Contest wi...

Granbury is blessed with a beautiful, historic Square. It's a great place to just park and have many wonderful places to shop all in one location. And, when you are weary from your shopping, you can stop into one of our fine eateries or wine bars.Today, I am featuring a stunning shop called, The Nest. Located on the corner of Bridge St. and Crockett, this elegant, home decor with a splash of hand-selected ladies' items. You will want to spend some time in this adorable store.I'm slightly partial to this shop because when my husband and I purchased this gem of a building, my vision to bring it back to life has come to life in this store and hotel. It has been a labor of love and a wonderful experience. You will also enjoy this beautiful, restored building too. And, located just upstairs ...

Let's all say a prayer for Delores, the wife of the KING of Active Rain. Bill    A Difficult Week for Dolores Kelley If you follow me on Facebook, you already know that my wife, Dolores, lost her balance and fell at home last Sunday night. She could not get up and the situation was compounded when I passed out while trying to assist her. I called my sister, a nurse, for help and she accompanied Dolores in the ambulance to the hospital. I still have balance issues after my incident of vertigo that put me in the hospital at the end of November. Dolores had hip replacement surgery on Tuesday. Last night, she was transferred from the hospital to ProMedica in Potomac, Maryland for rehabilitation. She will be there for physical therapy until she is able to walk.  Thanks to all for your messag...
