   Election years  and Investments can actually compliment each other if a Seller is motivated due to it being an election year and an investor has to re allocate their investment bundles to  change their tax structure; or invest in  a property, like 4617 Luvene Ave., Springdale,AR.  for exmple.  This auction opportunity  is a good sleeper property for an investor who  has a  "wait and see" attitude, future vision and a tolerable risk portfolio.  The economic forecast in history has been favorable  in the Northwest Arkansas Region.  It is  the world headquarters to global giant, Walmart, Tyson and JB Hunt Trucking.  All of these companies have one thing in common, they are all key players in our economy going forward the next decade after the election.   This area's growth has always be...

Catharine Moore Barry was born in 1752. I’m making an assumption she was born in American however, there is no evidence that I could find of exactly where she was born. She was the daughter of Charles and Mary. At 15 she married Andrew and lived on Walnut Grove Plantation in Roebuck, South Carolina.At 29 during the year 1781 she was instrumental in helping to warn the militia of the coming British before the Battle of Cowpens. Legend says she tied her toddler to the bedpost while she rode out to warn neighbors that the British were coming. Her ride helped prepare the colonial forces to defeat the British driving them out of South Carolina. She knew the Indian trails and shortcuts where almost no patriots lived. She was also a spy and message bearer for the militia.One other thing she wa...

Jeanne Louise was born in Arles, France back in 1875 to Nicolas and Marguerite. In 1896 at the age of 21 she married her double second cousin Fernand a wealthy store owner. His wealth made it possible for Jeanne never to have to work. She led a leisured lifestyle, playing tennis, cycling, swimming and roller-skating among other things.After her husband died she moved into a nursing home. She recalled she had met Vincent van Gogh when he visited Arles. She recalled him as dirty, badly dressed and disagreeable plus very ugly. She had sold him some colored pencils. She also recalled seeing the Eiffel Tower being built. So just to keep everything on an even keel I’m writing about Jeanne Louise Calment. Does the name ring a bell? Well if not here is the rest of the story. She is the longest ...

  I’ve met a “skellum” have you? Yes sir I’ll be the first to admit I have met one of these.  I tried to do the deed but I couldn’t get it done.  There is another meaning to this word and sometimes we are face to face with this person.  I’m curious on how you deal with this personality.  The meaning of (skel’em) is one deserving to die (my guy) second meaning a rascal; rouge; scamp.  So have you met a rascal or scamp?   What say you?

  Two guys and Heaven!! As the story goes there were these two guys and both died.  As one entered Heaven the person said: “You will receive a new vehicle based on your faithfulness to your spouse.  The guy received a new Volvo.  As he was driving around Heaven he observed his friend standing beside a new BMW just sobbing.  He stopped and asked his friend why he was crying so, he was driving a new BMW it was a fine vehicle.  The friend answered: OH! The car is not the problem I just saw my wife and she was on a SKATEBOARD!!!  Makes you wonder doesn’t it???
