My poor Asian pear tree has been fried and has lost about 3/4 of her leaves. My Gala apple tree looks tired but he is really starting to open up finally. The Owari Satsuma Mandarin Tree is just loving the heat and has recovered very nicely from winter. I took some new photos of my trees today and included them in my gallery and on this page.
Back in 2011 Quality Home Locator announced it was going to provide property management services in the Decatur, IL area. Since then the company has increased its Millikin area housing on the west end of Decatur IL as well as helped many clients find quality tenants in the Greater Decatur area. Also announced back in May, the company has started providing property management services in the St Louis, Mo area. With the successful addition of a few properties, Quality Home Locator plans to announce a few more within the coming months. More information can be found on its website.
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be in New York when Andrew Craig Brown performed Don Alfonso in Cosi fan Tutte at Yale. The performance was amazing! English National Opera just officially announced Andrew Craig Brown as Achilla in Julius Caesar. I am so proud of his accomplishments and I’m privileged to have been able to witness his career unfold. Andrew’s website is scheduled for release soon but his bio has been added to the Opus 3 website.
The DISC, Decatur Indoor Sports Center, is a great facility located just south of Millikin University. Quality Home Locator has many rental properties on the west end of town near the DISC and they offer a great yearly package for non-students. Just a few hundred dollars per year gives your entire family access to the whole facility. Most of our Millikin area student housing properties are conveniently located just a block or two from the DISC. As of May, 2012 we only have one house available for the 2012-2013 school year.
