Taste Test #HERSHEY’S GOLD

Click here to view Taste Test Video

I am a Broker Associate at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate GARY GREENE, and I have decided to take a break from Real Estate to share my thoughts on the new HERSHEY’S GOLD candy bar. (Check out the YouTube video) Try it yourself and chime in with your thoughts. No, I am not paid by #Hershey’s, I just have a HUGE sweet tooth. I am on the look out for the White Chocolate #Twix in The Woodlands/North Houston area, DM me if you have spotted them in a store.

THERE IS ALWAYS TIME TO BE THANKFUL

11_use_THANKSGIVING_Fotolia_124767662_L

In the Gulf Coast Region of Texas it has been a bit of a challenging couple of months.  The destruction from Hurricane Harvey will be felt for years to come.  But there is always time to be Thankful.  Some would say this is the icing on an already challenging year.  Retail is continuing to take a hit due to e-commerce or due to their continued insistence that they understand what their customers want, yet continue to do business as they always have in the past.  Real Estate has not had a bang up year, Harvey aside, due to the slow in the regional economy.  Yep it has slowed and in some cases their have been layoffs and 2018 may bring more.  The talking heads talk about stocks being up here and there but the trickle down to our region hasn’t happened yet, not enough to create a BOOM.  But there is always time to be THANKFUL.

SOOOOO LET’S BE THANKFUL

Thankful that the HOUSTON ASTROS won their First World Series Championship, be thankful that despite their star rookie quarterback getting hurt the Houston Texans have a future to look forward to.  Thankful that Tilman Fertitta kept the ownership of the Houston Rockets local and so far the season is looking good.  Rumor has it he is looking at bringing hockey back to Houston and that would be AWESOME!!!!   Ok, enough about sports, let’s be thankful that we live in a GOD WE TRUST country.  Let’s be thankful that we can worship GOD in our own way.  Let’s be thankful that we have each other and help one another…..

through thick and thin

So I did some research on where this phrase came from and it IS and oldie.  My research found this phrase goes back to the English country side around the late 1300.   This refers to the thick growth of the English countryside that hunters encounter and their strong desire to overcome those obstacles in order to win the prize of the hunt.   The original expression was through thicket and thin wood.   We all know that a thicket is a tightly grown group of trees or brush and thin wood…well that is a forest that has not grown together.  History class dismissed.

Be thankful for your health, the ones you love and the ones that love YOU and make sure you take time to……………….

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM FOR…THEM

2_use_hear_moon_fotolia_68518813_l

Every night we recharge our batteries for several hours.  No distractions, usually pretty quite and mostly dark.  While this time is important for our minds it is equally important for our bodies.  Comfortable pajamas, soft sheets, maybe a fan overhead on low all help in taking us to dream land.  Do we dream of our wants and desires or run from our insecurities and fears?  I hope we are all shooting for the happy dream and leave our worries on the night stand.

So I am writing in February and I hope that you are dreaming of how to make this Valentines day a special one for your loved one, children or grand children.  No, I’m not going to spin this as a Real Estate Commercial so get that our of your mind now.    I’m looking to help you make your reality better than your dreams.  Take the time now to plan for the future (Valentines day).  A thoughtful gift or gesture cannot be acquired on a whim.  thinking deeply about the one you love and their needs and desires take time.  You could take it a step further like I have…..

In my phone I have a tab in my notes dedicated to gifts.  Nothing fancy, it’s not a special app, I just have a section for Wife, Child 1, Child 2….they each have their own special place.  Throughout the year I take notes on their wants and desires.  It might be laughing about a T.V. commercial, a reaction to a new desert or comment I heard about something they would like to do better.  I compile these notes and use them for birthdays, Christmas and yes Valentines day.  Don’t get me wrong I will always buy chocolate but adding a picture frame with a photo from the trip to the zoo or smore flavored jelly, well those can be the gifts that are remembered for a life time.  After all who wouldn’t enjoy smore flavored jelly?

Happy Valentines day!
