Mother's Day Angel...Importance of Mommy's Once upon a time there was child ready to be born.  So the child asked God, "I heard I am going to to Earth tomorrow, but I'm scared, how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God answered the child, "I chose an angel for you.  She will be waiting for you and will take care of you." The child responded, "But here, in Heaven, all I ever do is sing, smile & laugh.  That's enough for me to be happy?" God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will smile for you everyday.  You will feel your angel's love & that will make you happy." The child still seemed unsure, "How am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language that they are speaking?" God continued to comfort the child, "Your angel will...

East Central Florida including Ormond By The Sea, Daytona Beach and all of Volusia County are under lighting restrictions form May 1 to October 31 each year.  The restrictions are designed to protect several species of endangered and threatened sea turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs.  Balcony, porch and other lights that could potentially be seen from the beach must be turned off or shielded. Hatchlings head to the ocean when they emerge from their nest and could be confused by lights coming from the opposite direction.

                                                 Buy a House in Ormond Beach Florida If you're looking to buy a great house in Ormond Beach (one of the most desirable cities in Volusia County), stay tuned! Some of you may remember a house I had listed for sale a couple of years ago, by the picture at the right. At that time, the seller decided to rent it, so it's been off the market for a while. But it will soon be back on the market at an incredible price! This 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath house with a nice yard, and roomy interior will be only $69,900! That's about half the price they were asking 2 years ago! If you're interested in buying a house in Ormond Beach, and think this may be the one for you, call or e-mail me now, before it goes into the Daytona Beach Area Multiple Listing Service ...
