Have you ever heard of Wordle.Net?

Posted on Updated on

Here is a fun website …. Wordle.net.

I knew that word clouds existed but I never really gave much thought to them. I had seen them a couple of times in news articles where someone had created one of the SOTU and then the Republican response and other instances, typically involving politics. Well, now I have found out about a website that creates them. I entered the info from my mobile website … www.BigCountryHomesforSale.com and came up with this one. It is an interesting and fun way to take a break. So grab a cup of coffee and Wordle-away!

Well, the false and half-true spam emails are starting again… (sigh)

Aside Posted on Updated on

I see that the false and half-true emails are starting again and they are using an email that was supposedly sent out by a Realtor®.  I doubt that an actual Realtor® would have sent out these spams so he/she is using the Realtor® trademark name to lend a air of “authority” to an email that is obviously false or half-true.  So here again, is someone wanting to stir up emotions about the 3.8% tax in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  The best advice I can give you is this… if you have substantial income and/or investments that might fall into the categories mentioned in the Act, you should consult with a tax accountant regarding your tax liability under the program.  The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) has put together some information regarding the tax which will provide some insight into this issue.

I’ve included a link to a brochure published by the NAR that gives several very good examples of the tax.

I have included a video published by NAR also.

A word of advice about these spam emails, regardless of the subject,  please check them out on Snopes to see if they are true or not.  And if Snopes doesn’t have any information, it doesn’t mean that it is true either.  My suggestion is to not forward these spam emails at all.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

I’m all out…

Well, everyone, I’m all out of listings. 

Yep, I have 3 left that are currently under contract and (keeping fingers crossed) will close soon. 

I need listings! 

If you know of anyone who has a property to sell in or around the Abilene Tx area, send them my way!


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas
Have a great Holiday and get ready for 2010!

I hope everyone is getting geared up for Christmas — it will be here before you know it!

What are your special plans this year?  Mine?  Well, I don’t really have anything special planned but on my days off, I’m going to catch up on some work on the house that has been sadly postponed for way too long.  On Christmas Day, I will, of course, watch the Disney parade and we’ll have dinner at mom and dad’s as usual.  I really like peace and quiet when I get time away from work.  Don’t you?
