Monday Morning Millionaire… Margaret Thatcher Would Have Loved This Highland Park Tudor, and So Will You!
I adored Margaret Thatcher, and though I was upset that Meryl Streep snatched the Academy Award for Best Actress from the very deserving Glenn Close for The Secret Life of Albert Nobbs, I have to admit her performance was flawless as The Iron Lady.
Fort Worth and Dallas real estate moola has helped Glenn Close achieve the dream of her lifetime: Albert Nobbs, an independent film that was heavily financed by Crescent Real Estate Equities CEO John Goff and his darling wife, Cami, is in line for some Oscar gold after it was nominated for three Academy Awards this morning! The star, writer and producer Glenn Close was nominated for Best Actress, her co-star Janet McTeer was nominated for Best Supporting Actress (the film was also nominated for Best Makeup). Remember Glenn came to Dallas to seek funding for this film, when she told me she knew it would be the performance of a lifetime.

I just saw a press release come across my screen indicating that Allie Beth is once again listing Mount Vernon, the beautiful, stately, historic Dallas estate on White Rock Lake built by oilman and Dallas icon H.L. Hunt and owned by John and Teresa Amend.
I found this piece in the LA Times over the holiday weekend – it takes a brutally honest look at the Texas economy. One of every four jobs in the U.S. has been created in Texas post-recession — something I know you’ve heard here before, but the sound is now resonating loud and clear across the nation all the way to L.A. Which is why, of course, Rick Perry is exploring a presidential run. Never mind that he has not had all that much to do with those jobs (not all CEO’s that’s for sure) as well as keeping our economy afloat and one of the high spots in the U.S.A. But as the writer, Rick Wartzman, points out, Texas has some quirks that can not be replicated elsewhere. For one, when the price at the pumps go up, so do we:
