The answer is yes, owning investment property may provide financial and personal benefits, including:

  • Rental opportunity. If you purchase an investment property close to local businesses, a popular commuting area or vacation spot, this may be attractive to tenants and could create cash flow.

Devastating Tornado In Oklahoma

We are very saddened of the massive tornado that hit in the state of Oklahoma last Tuesday, May 21, 2013 that wiped out many homes, schools, buildings, cars, properties and killed estimated 24 people. It was reported that this tornado that hit Oklahoma recently are ranks among the strongest storms that strike one of the state here in United States of America, this destroy many and left a lot of damages in the area.

Watching the news and videos this is very horrifying and scary tornado ever. Imagine how strong this was, this tornado spanned 1.3 miles and with length of more than 22 football fields line up end to end and carved 17 miles path of destruction. That was a horrible and terrifying tornado that strike Oklahoma with powerful winds that topped 200 miles per hour.

These tornado's damage everything that people own in that certain place where the tornado hit. Someone says this like a bomb that happen quickly and just like five minutes destruction. The news said today that the insurance reported that this damage almost 2 billion dollars, 12,000 houses and one of the officials had said that the tornado killed at least seven children at the school and this was very heart breaking.

Most of the people in the affected area lost everything they have and that was very devastating to the affected one.  I know this takes time and money to rebuild Oklahoma to the affected area. We need to remember that we just don’t know when and what calamities would strike to us, just be strong and live with it. We just hope and pray to the affected residents or people that they can work through those trying times and be safe everyone.

Turn Up Your Taste Buds With Private Selection

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Private Selection for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Private Selection
Having a decent dinner for my family at dinner time is always a challenge because of our busy schedule. But I know how having at least one full coursed balanced meal is essential for each and every one of us. This is why I do my best to provide a balanced meal along with a dessert as a treat for every family dinner.

This means creativity is essential because of my busy schedule and choosing the right food to prepare can be a challenge. Typically, I would resort to pre-packaged snacks for dessert such as store bought ice cream, cookies, Jello or pudding cups. Even though I know there are better things I could give to my family. Baking is not always my strong suit and time is always an issue.

This is when I discover the indulgent flavors of the Private Selection Upside Down Cakes. Private Selection Upside Down Cakes are easy, just warm, flip, and serve. These cakes are premium quality without the premium price.

Whether at home at a company pot-luck or holidays with family and friends, my go-to dessert is definitely one of the Private Selection Upside Down Cakes.

Nice to hear the birds singing today and seeing tress that the leaves are started to grow back again.

We feel energetic and happy when we have sunshine and we can be productive because we are more alert. It is amazing what sunshine and weather can do for us. Love to see the green trees and flowers again. I have seen daffodils and tulips are coming out already. We are hoping that we will have good flowers this year.
