Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were filled with family and friends, as I know mine were. Here are five things happening around your state this month: 1. Preserving the Alamo In 2015, the Texas Legislature dedicated $32.5 million, as well as $75 million in 2017 for upgrades and preservation of the Alamo. Earlier this month, the Senate Finance Committee held a meeting to discuss how the General Land Office (GLO) was using this funding. more
Good men are hard to find. Yet, our culture cries out for them. This was a tough year because we lost two good men from the same family right here in Bullard. If you knew Jim McKellar or Todd Anderson, you know what I mean. The thing is, we have more than our fair share of good men in Bullard. Please forgive me, if I overlook anyone by focusing on these two. more
Lively. That’s the best word to describe the funny, smart, active young people who visited us recently from Israel. We felt so fortunate to be a short stop on their tour to sing and dance across America as part of a cultural exchange celebrating the city of Ariel, Israel.

Okay, maybe epic is a bit hyperbolic, but you know me. more
It’s crazy the stuff we’re thankful for as we age. Getting out of bed. Waking up at all. Coffee. Being able to swallow. Being able to feed myself. Being in my right mind. Well, mostly right. more
Fighting with our spouse is one thing. Fighting together for your family is a whole ‘nother approach. Both can be rooted in the same instincts. Do you ever wonder if your spouse actually likes fighting? Don’t we all wonder if we spend too much time trying to fix what’s broken at home? The answer could be as simple as the three ways all humans respond to fear: freeze, flee, or fight. more
