I want to keep everybody informed about the Affordable Health Care Marketplace. If you or someone you know still needs help, call Mary Skillman at 1-800-960-5201. Mary represents Blanco County and her help is FREE. Lots of times Mary can help you over the phone and she is more than willing to travel to the Johnson City Library or Blanco Library or perhaps you have a better place to meet her.

My father had turned the driving over to my brother, Dale, and they conversed freely as they motored along on the divided federal highway just outside Mexico City on a lovely Saturday morning. They traveled a beautiful new four-lane freeway with a well-trimmed hedge down the median. All was well until Dale began to negotiate what should have been an easy curve.

There's something about real estate that turns everyone into an expert. Tell a group at a dinner party that you're selling your home, and you'll get advice to go along with every course. That's because many people have bought and sold homes, so they have experience with property transactions. But experience is not the same thing as expertise Your friends and family aren't trying to steer you wrong, but they may be perpetuating myths regarding successful techniques to sell houses.

Changes in My Garden Yes, I am now in the process of redesigning and moving my main garden again and creating a kitchen garden much closer to the kitchen.
