I spy…

Remember the game that we all played as kids. Mom would say, “I spy something….whatever, and we would continue guessing until we narrowed it down to the object. Or in my case, Mom would do that thing with her eyes that alerted me to the object when it became apparent that I was not going to be a very good spy at all. In hindsight, those clues begin to come quicker and quicker into the game and I’m now sure that she probably didn’t enjoy it as much as I did. In her mind she was probably thinking, “I spy a kid who has a future with a shovel; not a spy glass.” Thanks Mom!

Things ain’t like they used to be

In previous generations, folks lived—and then they died—in close proximity to family.  With advances in technology and medical care, people are now living longer.   While there is still no miracle cure for aging—no fountain of youth— on average, we live longer and have access to greater resources that increase the quality of life.  Rather than an abrupt end, more of us will face some period of gradual decline requiring skilled care.

Realtors need to disclosure too!

We have all heard when listing a home Realtors are supposed to inform their clients to fill out a Seller’s Disclosure form and DISCLOSE DISCLOSE DISCLOSE.   When a defect is physical (for example, a leaking roof or unsound foundation), the issue is clear. Licensees must disclose. When the defect is emotion (for example, murder, ghosts or diseases such as AIDS), the answer varies according to the Georgia Real Estate Commission (GREC).

City of Snellville to celebrate 90 years


More than ninety years ago, at a crossroads, a community was created. The British-born Snell and Sawyer families established homes and commerce. The late 1870’s brought the wood-built general stores built by the founding fathers that began a growing trend. Churches, doctors and eventually phone service followed.
