Canadian and USA Flags

Oh Canadaaaa! Our Home and Native Land  ….

Blackberry Pls Help I have been extremely fortunate when it comes to Charleston cell phone repair: I HAVEN'T NEEDED ANY REPAIRS! Just suffered the typical freezes - software reboots etc. that most of us have come to expect with our cell phones. HOWEVER - for anyone who has other repair issues you probably are quite aware that repairs at your local carrier are not a featured service....

You can thank Scott at T-Mobile on James Island SC for the following options for cell phone repair - so if you Drop it, Dunk it, Throw it, Smash it, Step on it etc, and suffer some negative repercussions you may want to visit these guys:

 Charleston SC Dog Parks – Keeping Your Four Legged, Furry Children Happy!

Charleston SC Dogs at PlayMy sister and her husband have two gorgeous, four legged, furry children… ( photos attached) and locating a dog-friendly park was a critical element in their search for a new home.

So , why haven’t  I considered researching the Dog Parks in the Charleston SC area before now… No answer except to say I am making up for lost time…

It is natural for dogs to want to socialize and play with other dogs. They are after all descendent from wolves and the pack instinct is strong.  But … domestic dogs leave the “Pack” (their litter mates)  typically by 8 weeks of age. So it is up to us humans to provide friendly opportunit...

FALL in Charleston SC ! - Farmers Markets and Pumpkins Abound!

Tags: heather lord, charleston area markets, charleston fall events, charleson sc property, pumpkins, charleston sc farmers markets


Fall has arrived in Charleston SC …. Yes, I know I am late!  The first official day of Fall was September 21, 2010….But with the temperature reaching 94degrees F in Charleston SC on that date I just couldn’t get into the Autumn mindset.

Well, we have received our weather reprieve - the temperature and humidity levels have dropped, Summer is winding down and FALL is in the air… I love this time of year – I find a renewed strength to get things done and one of my favorite things to do is to visit the Farmers Market – they are so colorful – vibrant -  offering pickles to pumpkins with lots of other stuff in between.

I thought a list of some of Charleston’s area markets might be of interest...

Charleston SC Foreclosure Properties – A Buying GuideForeclosure Sign Outside of Home

So you are considering buying a Charleston foreclosure property ? These distressed properties are increasingly available in the Charleston Tri-County area and can represent a terrific opportunity to purchase a home with instant equity.
