Having lived in Pflugerville since 1995, I've seen many changes in this town. We built our first and second homes here, and we've chosen to raise our 4 kids in this community.   When we first moved here, the population was around 13,000. As of 2013, we have over 50,000 residents, with a $23.5 mil...

My friend Alan May posted this ad, and I think it's probably one of the very best I've ever seen. Try not to smile/cry while watching it. So much packed into one minute.  :) I came across an ad for Coke New Life (seems to be a Mexican product) that gives you a sense of what it's like to be a new ...

Back in 2003, after six years of selling homes, I had my very first $1 million+ sale. Since then, I have been blessed with many more in that range, including a few homes that exceeded $3 million, and one which was just over $4 million a few years ago. That being said, our bread-and-butter sales a...

Almost 16 years ago, I still remember exactly how I felt when I found out I was going to be a father for the first time. My wife chose to tell me using a fortune cookie (and a lot of planning to pull it off): Roses are red, violets are blue I'm gonna be a parent and so are you.   Truth be told, I...

Having lived in the Austin area since 1988, I've seen this place change in countless ways. When I was a kid, we used to drive through Austin on our way to see my grandmother in Corpus Christi. I remember that the Capitol building looked huge and dramatic in the 1970's. Now, although it's still ma...

Having lived in Pflugerville since 1995, I've seen a LOT of changes. When I moved here, the closest grocery store was about 10 minutes from my house. Now, there are 3 of them that are closer than that. The toll roads, SH-45 and TX-130, which opened in late 2006, opened up a world of new developme...

A few years ago, I wrote about a song that helped my father to give up alcohol for the last 11 years of his life. He passed away in 2005 after sponsoring and helping many others through his involvement with AA. This would become one of his crowing achievements in life. When I was considering whic...
