The most successful, competitive and accomplished athletes train with their minds. They can close their eyes and literally picture – and see – how to execute a routine, make a move, lead and score. They are able to imagine themselves in the winner’s circle.

Communities with Character

Posted by: Rick Pariani in Neighborhoods
 

As a new home buyer, you know all about the concept of creating and maintaining a “sense of place”, once you settle on your house choice. You look for places that have character and homes that have charm. Although you need to check off all of those pragmatic boxes, you also yearn for more, in both the neighborhood and the house and yard.

Spring cleaning is often a daunting exercise and can stretch out for days and weeks, even a month or two. But completing a thorough spring cleaning within one weekend is absolutely achievable. Here is a day-by-day guide courtesy of Davidson Realty.

FRIDAY: Declutter day

Utilize day one to eliminate clutter throughout your house. Take an empty laundry basket and move room to room collecting anything that is not in its assigned “home.” This includes clothes, old mail, books and magazines, papers, toys, shoes, etc. It is all too easy to amass these items throughout the year in corners and on bookshelves.

Two parties in a conversation must share a common interest with a shared vocabulary – or there will be no communication – no meaning.

Finally a great Mexican place in World Golf Village! Cinco de Mayo, located at 124 Capulet Dr, Suite 109, offers very affordable lunch options, daily specials and a full bar. I was extremely impressed with the service and quality of food. I don’t know about you, but I normally judge a Mexican restaurant on their fajitas and queso. Cinco de Mayo gets five stars from me on both!
