 Population figures for Allen, Frisco, McKinney and Plano  People often ask me about the population figures for Allen, Frisco, McKinney and Plano.  The latest US Census population numbers are as follows: Allen  77,644   July 1, 2007 44,757   July 1, 2000 Frisco 88,529   July 1, 2007 35,160   July 1, 2000 McKinney 115,620  July 1, 2007   56,096  July 1, 2007 Plano 260,796  July 1 2007 224,550  July 1, 2000 Plano has reached an almost 100% build-out situation for residential single-family homes. There simply is not much vacant residential land left in Plano to build homes on. Going forward, I would expect Plano to have very small population increases. Allen has some residential land left to build on over the next five years. Over the next five years, I would expect Allen to add many new r...

  First-Class Recreation and Park Facilities are Available to Allen, Frisco, McKinney and Plano Residents.   The residents of Allen, Frisco, McKinney and Plano are extremely fortunate to live in cities with a wide variety of city-owned recreation and park facilities.   There are too many facilities to write about in one blog.  Therefore, I have decided to focus on the best (in my humble opinion) facility that each city has to offer.   PLANO   Tom Muehlenbeck Recreation Center was built in 2007.

Yes!  There are many options to share with you to get you in a house for very little or nothing out of pocket.  The Frog has access to mortgage programs that are still at 100%.  If you don't qualify for one of those programs, The Frog still has other options he can share with you to obtain 100% financing such as free government bond money, gift money, Frog money, and many more.  Don't let the media fool you!!!  100% financing still exists!

My fears were alleviated and I can still show my face around Plano,TX.  Why? I survived middle school - AGAIN! I also believe I did not totally embarrass my 8th grader when I showed up on November 13th, 2008 for Career Day at Carpenter Middle School in Plano,TX. For a bit of reference you can visit the original blog post I wrote, Stage "my space", calling on my colleagues for HELP! when I first discovered I was signed on for the gig. It was a bit overwhelming to say the least initially. After mulling over many ideas (Thank YOU everyone who shared with me!) about how to tell the students about my career as a home stager, I settled on the theme of "What I wanted to be when I grew up". I went back in time to see how I arrived where I'm at today.  This theme was based on something I recall ...

I'm a little late in posting this but after seeing the show last night I wanted to make sure that you had the opportunity to hear about the Plano East Fine Arts musical production of the 1980's hit FOOTLOOSE presented November 20th - 22nd, 2008 at 7:30 PM at Plano East Theatre.  Footloose is a high spirited, high energy musical based on the hit 1984 movie, starring Kevin Bacon. It's the story of a big city boy who moves to a small town and shakes up the status quo with his unconventional, rebellious attitude. Music includes; "Holding Out for a Hero", "Almost Paradise", "Let's Hear if for the Boy" and always a crowd favorite "Footloose".  It's a family friendly show too! Great singing, dancing and acting combine to make this a fabulous show! Hope to see you there! For more information pl...
