First off, if you have not seen a show at the performing arts center, you really should make plans to do so. The center offers a nearly flawless venue to enjoy your favorite group or show. I say nearly only because parking is a little difficult and/or pricy. We ended up using valet. $35.00. Ouch!
The Hall & Oates show exceeded our expectations. It is really nice to go to a show and hear music that you know and can sing along. “I can’t go for that”, “You make my dreams” and “You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling” were crowd pleasers! The entire band was energetic and you could tell they were enjoying putting on the show as much as the audience was enjoying it.
Great shows like this one is another reason we think living near Orlando is awesome!
We are excited to offer our latest listing; a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in sought after Solivita. This resale is a wonderful place to relax with friends after a swim in one of the community pools, playing golf or tennis, working out, or walking some of the trails throughout the community.
This 2100 square foot home is a great value and a must see!
Call us schedule a private showing or to receive additional information.
For the past several years, Ellen and I have attended the Florida Citrus Sports Feast on the 50 held at the Citrus Bowl. This is a really fun event showcasing many of the best college football programs from around the country.
There are plenty of events and activities for all and another advantage for living near Orlando!
Ellen and I are thankful that we have kept an American Home Shield Home Warranty on the house. This year has been a perfect example of the benefits of having an AHS warranty.
The photos in this post are of an area where we developed a major plumbing leak. Yes, that is a hardwood floor saturated with water from the leak. As you can see the plumber needed to cut a hole in our wall in order to access the area in need of repair.
Plumbing repairs are not cheap. Because we had a warranty, we were able to call our AHS service number and almost immediately, they sent us a plumber that was located near Orlando. Leak fixed!
We love American Home Shield and our rep, Teri Pryor. Call us if you would like more information about AHS or any other real estate questions!

To our surprise, it turned out to be really fun! We were locked in a room with the only way to escape or exit is to search for clues scattered around the room that would ultimately lead to finding the key that would let us out. The game only allows an hour to escape!
As you can see from the picture, we were able to beat the game. It took us 52 minutes. The game was challenging but fortunately for us, we were teamed up with some smart people that were able to connect the dots, while I spent a lot of time scratching my head, confused.
If you are looking for something different and like puzzles and thinking games, you should give it a try. I know we will go back.
We had an opportunity to go listed to one of our most recent customers perform last night at The Brewery Barrel Bar located in the O-Town area of Kissimmee last night.
Ryan Robinette sang a number of songs we were very familiar with. The young man is an amazing talent. When he becomes a huge success we will be able to say “we knew him when”.
As we understood, The Brewery Barrel Bar just recently opened They offered a wide variety of bottled and draft beers from all over the road. beer barrels served as the base for their tables and you even walked through a beer barrel door when entering.
We enjoyed our Saturday night out there and would suggest checking out both Ryan and The Brewery Barrel Bar.
We attended the Russell Athletic Bowl for the 2nd time in the last 3 years and both times were really fun! The bowl game is held every year at the Orlando Citrus Bowl. We obtained our tickets as part of our membership with Florida Citrus Sports. This year we decided to have our own mini-tailgating party. We ended up parking in lot 1, located on Central and really close to the Citrus Bowl. We did have a fan who drove down from Louisville park beside us but for the most part, the fan base in lot 1 were decked out in Miami Hurricane colors. The day was perfect with just the right temperature, good snacks, a few beers, a little corn hole and laughs with good friends.
The game did not go well for the Miami fans. Louisville dominated early and by time the 3rd quarter was ending, so too was the fun for many of the Hurricane fans as they started for the exits. Not being a real fan of either team, we joined them and headed home just before the start of the 4th quarter. Fortunately for us, the fireworks show was held at half time, so our leaving before the end of the game did not result in our missing the light show.
If you get a chance to attend an event at the Citrus Bowl, I would suggest you do. Throughout the year there are many events held there that should appeal to most anyone living in or near Orlando!
