IT’S CARL LAMAR’S FAST FIVE!!

It’s time for another FAST FIVE! This time I got a hold of Vardell Curtis, who is the President of the Board of Realtors here in Southern Utah! Vardell really does have a great sense of humor, and it shows! We started out with this one: Would you rather fight vampires or zombies? Vardell says…

IT’S NEW! IT’S CARL’S FAST FIVE!!

I’m starting a new feature in our e-blast called CARL’s FAST 5! So I got a hold of Mayor Pike from St. George and hit him up with our fast five! I picked some questions out of the blue just to get him thinking FAST!! How would you respond to these same choices? I asked…

One Of My Favorite Movies!

One Of My Favorite Movies!

We just passed Groundhog’s Day so it made me think about one of my favorite movies with the same title. It came out in 1993 and stars Bill Murray who plays Phil Connors, an arrogant TV weatherman who, during an assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, PA, finds himself in a time loop, repeating the same day…

I Love Southern Utah Weather!

I Love Southern Utah Weather!

Every now and then it’s good to go up north where it’s cold and freeze your hind-end a little bit. Why? ‘Cause it makes you appreciate the incredible weather we’re blessed with here in southern Utah! I was in the Salt Lake valley over the weekend and even though it was actually into the low…

Getting Ready for the BIG GAME!

I was reading about the upcoming Super Bowl Feb 1st and read the stats on the number of people that watch just for the ads! A lot of people!! And now that the 30 second ads cost $4.5 million each during the actual game, those that purchase the air-time absolutely have to make good use of their…

Who Do You Believe??

Who Do You Believe??

I ran across something the other day that caught my eye, especially since it applies to me! The article said “The worst time to wake up is before 5am. And it’s best for your heart health to sleep in until 7am or 8am every day. That mantra of “early to bed, early to rise makes…

Are We Really That Naive?

Labels on products have gotten ridiculous! Are we really that naive? I guess the world has gotten so litigious that these companies have to issue warning labels that cover every possible abuse of the products! I remember as a young man standing in the shower and reading the label on the back of the bottle….

Black Friday Is Now Black Thursday!

Black Friday Is Now Black Thursday!

Did you get sucked into the madness Thanksgiving Day? Here’s what I find interesting: When it was first revealed that a number of the big box stores were to open during the day on Thanksgiving, traditionally a day to spend with family enjoying food and football games, a lot of people said it was ridiculous…
