2719 Chestnut Bend, Owensboro, Ky 42303 was sold at our Sunset Open House Series we had during May.  In the 20+ years I've been a Realtors I have probably sold 4 houses at an open house but sold several houses as a result of an open house. This home had been on the market for some time and this couple drove by and liked the curb appeal and came in a purchased this beautiful home. . Makes you appreciate taking a chance on doing something a little different doesn't it. Connie Lou Barnett, Home Realty/GMAC Real Estate, 3424 Frederica Street, Owensboro, Ky 42303

 Law of the Garbage TruckOne day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We weredriving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of aparking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on hisbrakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver ofthe other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxidriver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was reallyfriendly. So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruinedyour car and sent us to the hospital!' This is when my taxi drivertaught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run aroundfull of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full ofdisappointment. As their garbage p...

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she'd like to have for her birthday.'I'd like to be six again', she replied, still looking in the mirror.On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, and-then took her to Six Flags theme park. What a day!He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming roller coaster, everything there was. Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favori...

My friend is something else when it comes to jokes. I just had to pass this on I don't know how it works but it does. Let me know what you think. Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway -but the Hershey Man will know! YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATHThis is pretty neat.DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!It takes less than a minute .Work this out as you read .Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)3. Add 54. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator 5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759 ...

This is the first week of our Sunset Series for May.  We are holding several open houses on Thursday evenings from 5:30 - 7:00 PM.  We are doing this to try and generate more activity at our open houses and thought we would try Thursday evenings instead of the week-end and see if this would produce more buyers.

Sunset Open Houses We are trying something a little different in our area to try and generate a little more traffic in our open houses. Every Thursday evening in May we are holding sunset open houses from 5:30 - 7:00 PM.  Some of the agents are going to have relish trays, some cheese balls & some are not serving anything.  Our sellers have been real receptive to this and we are hoping this will be beneficial to the buyers as well.  Stay tuned... we'll let you know how is goes.

The first Saturday in May every year is the famous Kentucky Derby. One and half miles long,  known as "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports".  It is the first leg of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred  Racing.  Typically the race draws a crowd of approximately 160,000 fans.  The fireworks are spectacular along with the numerous Derby parties. The traditional singing of My Old Kentucky Home as the horses come on to the track  makes you aware that it's only minutes to the Run for the Roses. Win or lose it an event that you won't forget and it goes back 125 years. Beautiful Women,   Big Hats,  Mint Juleps, Infield Crowd, & Fast Horses. What an exciting day in Kentucky.  If you haven't been make plans to come next year.  You'll love it.
