I stopped using my dishwasher and found out I can wash...

No, no, and no!!!!!                                                  Under what table?  There was no table.  The client wanted to give my agent $500.00 cash in an envelope.  Nobody would know, just my agent and a client of another REALTOR(R). He wanted my agent to sell his home quickly.  My agent...

A light mist of rain is falling on the Texas coast this morning.  The hummingbirds are flying back and forth to the feeders hanging from the back porch.  The lemon tree and the mandarin and the tangelo are sprouting bright white blossoms.  Ring neck doves as big as pigeons find their way to the c...
