The Providence Equestrian Center is the home of the UNC Charlotte Equestrian Center. Today I stopped over to visit this beautiful equestrian center and enjoyed the lovely grounds and stables. The best part of this visit were the beautiful horses and look at this beauty.   I was ready to saddle up and ride.

In January 2011 a 5 year old boy was mauled and killed by a couple of dogs.  Since then there have been many meetings to discuss appropriate measures and ordinances for the people who live in Waxhaw, NC.  The first draft in March was overly restrictive.  After several more meetings and discussions there was a vote and all agreed. Here are the final agreed upon ordinances for Waxhaw, NC. You are allowed 5 dogs per acre. License fees are set on an annual basis. Professional breeders and animal rescuers are excluded from the restrictions concerning the number of dogs allowed. Escalating civil fines from $100. to $500. Seizure for violations. Penalties apply for maintaining dangerous dogs. Cats are excluded. Hopefully these new ordinances will maintain safety for owners and their pets. Judi...

Today I was out and about in Union county and have driven by this equestrian center many times, so today I actually stopped and took a couple of pictures. "Cedarhill today encompasses 40 acres of fields, streams, rings, barns, and paddocks. Home to over 50 horses including boarders, school horses, and horses in training, there is always something going on!" I was so disappointed today for there were no horses grazing in this pasture.  Many times there are beautiful horses with their warming blankets moving about this pasture. To get more information visit... Cedarhill Farm Judith Parker, CRS, GRI Keller Williams www.CharlotteHomeInfo.com jparker@kwcharlotte.com

The Great Waxhaw Train Wreck of 2010 One of the significant features of Waxhaw NC is the set of train tracks that splits the historic downtown down the middle.  Beautiful old commercial buildings and Victorian homes rise above the tracks.  A historic wooden bridge spanning the tracks at one end of the town offers a wonderful view of the town and its railroad. In July of 2010, one of the trains that moves through Waxhaw wrecked just outside the downtown area.  Six grain cars derailed and closed Highway 75, the main arterial through the town.  Luckily no one was hurt but businesses, neighborhoods and town officials had to work together with the railroad to re-open the street. Drive through downtown Waxhaw today and you’ll see a sculpture that commemorates this spirit of cooperation after ...

Email isn’t any less personal than any other form of communication. It may feel that way because, unlike a telephone or a face-to-face meeting, there isn’t any direct and immediate feedback. But your inbox is your inbox. Which means, you don’t want to spend your time sifting through hundreds of unsolicited and incomprehensible messages any more than anyone else.Which brings us to email marketing. Having a successful email-marketing campaign means putting yourself in your contact list’s shoes. If you were on the other end of the send button, would you be interested in what you are sending out? If not, it’s time to rethink your email strategies.Here are a few things to remember when launching an email-marketing campaign …Get Permission and Be Specific: The first, and most obvious way, to ...
