The majority of Houston and surrounding areas are filled with Master Planned Communities and HOA governed neighborhoods. There are not many homes that are outside of these areas.  Occasionally get new buyers who want a nice sized house on an acre lot with no HOA’s, but quickly realize that they can’t afford it. So it usually comes down to the big question: Should I look for a smaller house on a big lot, or a bigger house on a smaller lot?

"I wanted to let you know what kind of US Soldiers are serving you!" - "WHEN THE MUSIC STOPPED." A Chaplain serving in Baghdad recently wrote....   "I recently attended a showing of 'Superman 3' here at .... We have a large auditorium that we use for movies as well as memorial services and other large gatherings. As is the custom at all military bases, we stood to attention when The National Anthem began before the main feature. All was going well until three-quarters of the way through The National Anthem, the music stopped. Now, what would happen if this occurred with 1,000 18-to-22-year-olds back in the States? I imagine that there would be hoots, catcalls, laughter, a few rude comments, and everyone would sit down and yell for the movie to begin. Of course, that is, only if they ha...

Keller Williams Concert Series at Kings Harbor brings back Yelba's Variety Band this Friday, April 15, 2011.  For anyone lucky enough to have seen Yelba the first time, I'm sure you'll be back for more.  Yelba is energetic and so entertaining!  She is versatile.  One minute a love ballad - the next a disco tune.  In fact, Yelba's Variety Band was nominated in the 2010 Houston Press Music Awards as "Best Latin Band Traditional." The concert's band sponsor is Thomas Markle Jewelers.  They will be providing tips on jewelry spring cleaning.  And the featured charity is the Lake Houston Family YMCA.  They will sell to-go food for the Kings Harbor restaurants beginning at 6:30 PM.  A portion of these sales will go to the charity.  Bring your lawn chair on Friday and enjoy the concert from 7-1...

It was predicted.  A cold front arrived in Kingwood Texas last night.  Our temps actually dipped down into the 30's.  There was frost on rooftops & lawns this morning.  This Kingwood resident was prepared - just hoping for a nice cold day.  And wouldn't you be hoping for that cold weather day too if you had such a stylish set of cold weather clothing?
