Holiday Rattlesnake Roundup

  YEE HAW!!! It’s time for a Rattlesnake Roundup…. Well, a Holiday Rattlesnake Roundup I mean. Today I’m going to share a little secret that I always share with my Sellers when they ask for tips to staying organized when putting their home on the market.  It’s actually become very handy in a variety of…

Smokey Bourbon Spice Rub

Living in the South, it is easy to become addicted to BBQ! If you’ve never driven through Kentucky, you definitely need to.  The Kentucky Bourbon Trail offers distilleries galore.  Ok, of the numerous ones to choose from, we actually have only stopped at Jim Beam, but the treasures we collected in the general store have…
