Cashing out

A few years ago I knew a guy who was cashing out and moving to Texas. In the back of my mind I was thinking hhhhmmm, why would he want to move to Texas? Now I hear about more and more people leaving California and buying Dallas Real Estate.My sister has been there several times, and loves it. She takes her vacations there year after year, and I think out of curiosity the next time she goes, which should be very soon knowing her, I will ask her to pick up some real estate magazines for me so I can check out some Dallas Homes for Sale .I am a real estate magazine junky, but if you would rather just see Dallas Homes for Sale through the internet you can click the links.It can be confusing to buy real estate these days. The links above should have some very helpful information for you. Maybe you are not in a position to buy now, but it is never to late to think about how you want to spend your retirement years.

Something New

I have thought of a new item to sell, but I will need a way to get my name out there. After doing some research I found IDX Solution. It is a way to capture leads, and I am sure I will need to do some of that. It is so hard at first to get your product out there in the general public, but with some persistance I am sure it will be seen. There will be challenges, and some critisizing, but it's all part of the adventure. Who knows I just might hit the jackpot with my new item. Even if this one does not make it, I have many many more to try in the future.

To many plants

I like to grow things like trees and flowers but the problem I am having is I am running out of space so I will be looking into getting some plant hangers for the back patio.
Then after I have filled up the back patio with all of my plants I will be working on the inside of the house. I may start with a corner vanity. I will see how it goes as to what I decide to do next.Who knows I might end up in the living room and end up putting an asian chest somewhere out there. Keep in mind that all of this has to go thru my wife and she is the one with the taste its sure not me. I might just wait until she gets home to tackle any of this. I do like living on the edge so I may surprise her.

Real estate in Hawaii

Of all the places in the entire USA Hawaii is high on my choice of dream places to live. Yeah I know its expensive, just look at the real estate in Hawaii. They are not too bad though considering it is almost a perfect climate. Maui real estate has held up pretty well, and time will tell if it comes down as much as California has.

Back in my living on a boat days, I had quite a few friends who sailed to Hawaii. Some stayed and others came back ASAP. Sailor Sam was one of them (great guy). Sam if you're out there I would love to hear more of your stories. For you clowns who think its a cake walk to sail there, or dream about it, just so you know its about a 12-16 day trip on a sailboat from California, depending upon how fast your boat is. There are not any places along the way to get food or anything else you may of forgotten. Its a long long sail. Unfortunately Walmart and Taco Bell have not made floating establishments yet, but if it was feasible you can bet Walmart would have done it by now. They'd be selling China made pirate eye patches and hook hands at reduced prices.

If you do get to Hawaii, don't forget to look at some Hawaii real estate. If you're there send me a real estate catalog. I collect them much to my wife's dismay. She made me throw out a stack of them today, and it broke my heart.

So, if you are reading this at work right now, and you're hating your job because your boss is a complete tool, and you want to pretend you are working really really hard on that really really important research project check out the Kauai MLS instead. Dream about telling your boss to stick it as you rip off your tie and storm out of the office because YOU ARE MOVING TO HAWAII!!!
