The krewe of Selene will parade tomorrow night (Friday) in Slidell.  This is the only night parade in Slidell.  The parade is an all womens krewe and the best in Slidell as far as I am concerned.  The weather will be chilly.  Dress the little ones up nice and warm.  Come out and have a good time....
What is the economy doing?  Where is it going?  Simply, I don't know.  I don't think any one really knows. this includes our bigwigs in Washington and our universities.  However, i do think that something really scared the Federal Reserve into making two rate cuts this month when inflation is sho...
I managed to close two deals this month with a third closing hopefully next week.  Good news I seem to have plenty of prospects.  Some of them also sound serious.  You know what I mean.  I think the lower interest rates will help stimulate some buying.  Lower rates may also stabilize the existing...
I was hoping to hear from you mortgage guys about interest rates.  I am actually considering refinancing my property this year if interest rates become attractive enough.  Should the Federal Reserve cut rates tomorrow as anticipated, do you think the rates will fall further?  I realize they are n...
This was a new term to me.  I always assumed we were writing our own blogs.  Talking to my broker enlightened me.  Seems some of our members may be using so called ghost writers.  Are you one of them.  You rather pay someone to do this than you.  Are you that lazy?  Maybe that is why some look so...
Congratulation's to Bridget and her daughter Jaime on the purchase of their new home.  This is a small but charming house.  This home was completely redone after Katrina.  With some plants and fertilizers the yard will look as good as the inside in the coming year.  Once again I hope they enjoy t...
Wow a whole 1200 dollars.  Thanks, must have been hard giving me some of my money back that I worked for.  Do you realize what the politicians just admitted?  From both sides?  Taxes do hurt you and I.  We must give some back so you can spend it.  Great how about cutting the gasoline tax, propert...
I was pleased to read the new crime statistics for Slidell LA released yesterday.  All violent crimes decreased from the year before.  We had zero murders for the year, not bad considering how close we live to New Orleans.  The only increase was in thefts, attributed to stealing gas.  Go figure. ...
I have been reading a lot about the financial markets lately.  More so than usual.  We have been consumed with the subprime debt and default rate.  We have seen the stocks of Countrywide, etc. get pounded.  The way I understand it, we haven't seen anything yet.  The commercial debt that will be d...
Just wanted to let those who might be interested that the krewe of bilge has rescheduled their parade for next Saturday.  They were going to parade through Eden Isles yesterday but cancelled due to inclement weather.  They start at the marina and end at the dock.  Plenty of fun to be had.
