Texas rocks!

I want to go visit Texas. Some of the folks that I like the best on AR hail from Texas. I always wanted to play for the Dallas Cowboys. Padre Island is on my travel list. George Strait is from Texas. Lets face it, the Texas Longhorns are one great football team.

Hey all you Texans, let us know how great your state is.

Well, we have 6 out of 21 of the strongest metro areas according to the Brookings Institute!  Great economy, liveability, recreation, variety, etc!  Everyone, come on down!

Texas is surviving the financial storm.  San Antonio, Austin, Dallas & Houston are regularly in the top 10 most financially healthy cities in the entire nation.  Our unemployment rate is dropping like crazy.

San Antonio is known across the US as Military Town USA, we love our vets.  We even have special programs for vets that wipe out all property taxes.  Yes, vets with a certain percentage of disability DO NOT PAY ANY PROPERTY TAXES HERE!  I love how we take care of our vets.  We also have a Texas Vet mortgage program that offers rates close to 4% on a 30 year fixed 100% financed mortgage, only for our Texas vets. Texas is great because we are patriotic and love our country.

We also have great people, Alice, Shirley, Marchel & Tana are all great ladies that work hard every day to make Texas a great place.

Perhaps my favorite part of living in Texas is how respectful folks are.  Kids are raised to respect their elders and treat women with respect.  It's the cutest thing when a 5 year old boy runs up to open the door for me while his daddy watches to make sure he is growing up the right way.  I love our values!

Even with Alex coming toward our coast, folks in TX are thankful it is hitting us and not other gulf states so the oil wont distribute farther toward their coast lines.  WE are happy to take the hit to eliminate harm to the coast lines of neighboring states.

Here in Texas, we love our fellow Texans and will do anything to help a neighbor in time of need.

Shelley- excellent map, did not see it when I replied to the blog initially.

You are also another reason Texas is a great state! 

God Bless!

I Kevin, Thanks for the compliment.  Idaho is pretty cool, too! I love Couer d'Alene.  (Hope I spelled that correctly.)

I love Idaho.

When I grow up,  I'm going to have Kevin build my dream home there!

No Bees darlin!  We have to defend Texas, it is your job and I mentioned you in my comment :)

Posted by Melissa Anderson (Mortgage of Texas & Financial) almost 9 years ago

I just love Texas - the fire - the spirit - the patriotism - the accent -the women -  did I say that?

Posted by Broker Nick, Broker Nick Relocation Broker Service (South Florida Real Estate & Development, Inc.) almost 9 years ago

Nick- TX loves Florida and that is why we are glad Alex is hitting us and not you right now.

Everyone I spoke with today said, "Thank God we are getting the storm & not them"

Our state loves yours too!

Posted by Melissa Anderson (Mortgage of Texas & Financial) almost 9 years ago

We moved to Texas 14 years ago and LOVE IT!!  We have been weathering the storm. I sure hope there is no moratorium as that will hurt us and Louisiana.

Kevin:  When you rattled off your list about all the good things in Texas... you forgot one of the best of the musical acts... the Dixie Chicks.  They are awesome.  I just loved their concert in England some years ago.  <smile>

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) almost 9 years ago

The Dixie Chicks are a bunch of communists who betrayed this country and was banned from Texas radio - nice one Karen Anne

Posted by Broker Nick, Broker Nick Relocation Broker Service (South Florida Real Estate & Development, Inc.) almost 9 years ago

Hi There Karen Anne,

I really liked the Dixie Chicks for a while, but I'm kinda bummed when bands get political without knowing all the facts.  We see this in Hollywood too.

Hope all is well with you my friend! 

Posted by Melissa Anderson (Mortgage of Texas & Financial) almost 9 years ago

Nick:  Yeah, everyone who disagrees with you is a communist.  And, they were NOT banned from Texas radio.  Love your positive attitude, Nick.  Always a bunch of laughs.  And... aren't you forgetting this little thingie we have here in America ?  It's called Freedom of Speech.

Melissa: I have to compliment you.  You handled my silly comment very well.  I appreciate you.  The Chicks are a great group, although I have heard that Natalie Maines has gone out on her own, and the other two... the sisters... have their own "group" now.  Have a great week.  Tell your kitty Mollie T says hi. :)

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) almost 9 years ago

Karen Anne- I like that we can agree to disagree in the most perfect way.

Blessings!

The CLUCKS are now BROKEN UP.  Their SILLY comments are on par with Sir Paul's mention of "library" while in the White House.

Posted by Wallace S. Gibson, CPM, LandlordWhisperer (Gibson Management Group, Ltd.) almost 9 years ago

And, of course, Wallace... you are probably not very surprised that I agree with both of their comments, and fully support their right to state their beliefs, remembering that we still DO have Freedom of Speech in this country, even though so many so-called "conservatives" want to curtail that Freedom by accusing those whom they do not agree with... of being communists and anti-American or unpatriotic.

 

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) almost 9 years ago

That band WAS  banned from several radio stations in AUSTIN Texas....and they no longer exist, enough said....  and I agree with Melissa... I dont care to hear ANY sort of opinions from Hollywood stars or any Musicians they have an idea that we care... not sure where they get that from....

Peace Out!!!!!
