My last blog post shared an experience about picking tulips at Pilot Point Tulip Farm in Texas. To learn more about what I wrote the title and link is called It's Tulip Picking Time in Denton County Texas.Now it's time to tell the background story:How one Texas Real Estate Agent Helped Fulfill an American DreamThe dream began "nearly 30 years ago." Pieter and Petra Korman and their two children from The Netherlands came to America. They moved to Pilot Point where they started their dream in America by doing what they knew best from their European country. They were tulip farmers, with a long family tradition of planting tulip bulbs. Making their dream a reality was not easy. It took planning and finding the right real estate agent. With no experience about Texas soil, climate, or relati...

Todd McGrain’s “The Lost Bird Project” at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine ArtsTodd McGrain’s “The Lost Bird Project” at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Arts in Auburn, Alabama, is a poignant and thought-provoking testament to the intersection of art, conservation, and history. This evocative exhibition pays tribute to extinct North American bird species through McGrain’s skillfully crafted bronze sculptures. Each sculpture serves as a powerful memorial, immortalizing the memory of species like the Passenger Pigeon and Carolina Parakeet, which have been lost to time. The sculptures, set against the backdrop of the museum’s serene surroundings, create a haunting yet beautiful narrative that urges visitors to contemplate the impact of human actions on the natural world. McGrain...

TEXAS-TULIPS FARMIS OPEN FOR BUSINESSPilot Point, Texas With temperatures in the high 70's and sunny, it is the perfect time to pick tulips at the Tulip Farm, which is located in Pilot Point, just north of Dallas. From Flower Mound, it is approximately a 50-minute drive. I believe wellness in nature is the best way to live. Once you pay your entry fee of $6.00 (less for seniors), take a breath. Immerse yourself in nature's beauty. A lot of work goes into farming. Proceed carefully. Respectfully. Walk. Tiptoe. Dance. However, you choose to enjoy your day, just get to the Tulip Farm, if you can. There are baskets available to place your tulips down before purchasing what you pick.  Egyptian Proverbs teaches, "Seek peacefully, you will find." As soon as I learned the Tulip Farm was opened ...

National Margarita Day - February 22 I completely forgot that today was National Margarita Day until I stopped at my favorite Mexican Restaurant, El Salto in Perry Hall on the corner of Ebenezer and Belair Road. My favorite is a Peach Margarita with a salted rim.  It is so good!! But, then again, I like anything peach-flavored.We started going to El Salto when they first opened in Brooklyn Park about 25 years ago and we've made so many friends there and tonight was no exception. The family-owned business now has 3 locations and every time I go I see family there.  Today they had Happy Hour all Day and I ordered my old standby the Jalisco Special. What's your favorite Margarita?

The focus of my practice is civil and criminal tax representation, including helping taxpayers seek innocent spouse relief from the IRS.Navigating the complexities of tax law can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to joint tax returns and the potential liabilities they entail. Married taxpayers who file jointly with their spouses often find themselves in situations where they are unfairly held responsible for tax liabilities that they believe should not be their burden to bear. However, relief may be available through the IRS Innocent Spouse Relief provisions outlined in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 6015.When considering Innocent Spouse Relief, the first crucial step is determining whether a joint tax return was filed. This seemingly simple question can sometimes lead t...
