Folks – It’s Time for the 2008 Houston, Texas Rodeo!!

Be the first to comment on this post

It’s that time of year again . . . when you see trail rides on the feeder streets of the freeways with people proudly mounted on their horses, hayrides, chuck wagons . . . and people waving to everybody they can see.  Obviously, traffic can be a bit of a problem in Houston, Texas during this great rodeo event, but it’s worth the hassles.  The folks who run the rodeo have really made it fairly easy to get in and out of the facilities for the rodeo.

The rodeo offers music, food, great shopping, bar-b-que contests, ribbons galore for judged animals that children have raised, a great carnival, roping events, riding events, calf grabbing for kids . . . and, oh my goodness . . . so very, very much more.  There is something for everyone.  I hope you have the opportunity to make it to at least a few of the events this year.

There is a great music program during the Houston rodeo that is always very well attended.  Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Kevin Fowler and Alan Jackson have already performed.  Don’t worry, though . . . there are many other performers to see each night of the rodeo.  They are:

  • Friday, March 7 – Black Heritage Day – John Legend
  • Saturday, March 8 – Martina McBride
  • Sunday, March 9 – Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus
  • Monday, March 10 – Sugarland
  • Tuesday, March 11 – Rascal Flatts
  • Wednesday, March 12 – John Fogerty
  • Thursday, March 13 Toby Keith
  • Friday, March 14 – Clay Walker
  • Saturday, March 15 – Brad Paisley
  • Sunday, March 16 – Go Tejano Day – Duelo and Los Horoscopos de Durango
  • Monday, March 17 – Miranda Lambert
  • Tuesday, March 18 – Big & Rich
  • Wednesday, March 19 – Fergie
  • Thursday, March 20 – Dierks Bentley
  • Friday, March 21 – Pat Green
  • Saturday, March 22 – Brooks & Dunn

Can you even imagine this much talent being in one place during this short interval of time?!?!?!  What a great opportunity to go see your favorite entertainers!

There is always something going on somewhere at the Houston rodeo. You will thoroughly enjoy being a part of it.  However, at the end of the day . . .IF you can take off your boots . . .you’ll really enjoy putting your feet up and resting.  You’ll have had a wonderful day!

The What and Why of Daylight Savings Time!?!?!?!

Be the first to comment on this post

Yesterday a friend of mine told me that Daylight Savings Time was initiated due to the fact that farmers needed the extra daylight.  I thought that was quite strange. 

My grandfather and his parents were farmers in Nebraska.  The farm is still in the family.  I don’t believe that  they ever worried about what a clock told them when it came to farming.  I remember my grandfather being up and out doing chores long before breakfast and late into the night.  He came in to eat breakfast, dinner and supper . . .after working before and after each meal.  The work never seemed to be done.  I think he could have cared less about Daylight Savings Time.

Therefore, I started researching the origin.  There is a tremendous amount of history concerning Daylight Savings Time  in the United States that I knew very little about until I started researching it yesterday.  I was amazed at the history and found it to be quite interesting.  One of the sources I discovered is one that I will share with you if you have any interest in the origin and history of Daylight Savings Time . . . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time .  It was very informative and had a list of many other sources for information. 

I enjoy more sun filled hours during the day so that I may sell Houston, Texas  residential homes.  It seems to give me more time with homes buyers and home sellers.

Now I’ll get back to the whole point of this post . . .

Sunday, March 9, 2008 you need to remember to turn your clock ahead by one hour for Daylight Savings Time!!  You can always remember which way to move the clock by the saying “Spring Forward and Fall Back”.

Have You Kept Up With Your Domain Names???????

1 Comment | Leave A Comment

This week my new GoDaddy representative called and asked “Did you intentionally make the decision to NOT renew your domain names?”.

This question really got my adrenaline charging.  I hesitated on my response with a very sick feeling in my stomach . . . please don’t tell me they have expired . . . I worked so hard to get them.  How can I sell real estate in Houston, Texas without those domain names?  I finally answered, “Oh nooooooooooo . . .they can’t have expired.  I need them.  I worked too hard to find those names.”

The representative quickly calmed me down and told me that I had 4 more days before they expired.  I was so relieved. I renewed them for a couple more years.

I never thought to put the expiration date for my domain names on my calender.  I will from now on.  I can’t expect people to call me every time something that important is due.

One of my blogger buddies told me that I can ask my GoDaddy representative call me a couple months before they expire so I know the renewal is coming up.  I had actually thought that’s what they were supposed to do this time.  I guess I just need to stay on top of the matter myself.

HAVE YOU KEPT UP WITH YOUR DOMAIN NAMES???????
