Admittedly, residential real estate in San Antonio doesn't look as good as it did last month, with the pace of sales slowing 9.5% in September. The median home price dropped to $145,700 from last September's $147,700. This comes after several months of 1% to 2% appreciation, though, compared to ...

Okay, these homes aren't in the highest price ranges ($75,000-$95,000) or snootiest neighborhoods in town, but still they represent a significant number of those on the MLS.

At first I thought the grackles had paused on my potted lemon tree on their way to roost in the HEB supermarket parking lot. Those pesky birds had deposited a couple of yucky blobs on the leaves. Then I saw a bizarre object on one of the stems. It looked like a rough, gray, stubby snake with a bi...
