'Drink of the Week' The Painkiller

ABOUT THE PAINKILLER COCKTAIL
If you’re going to name your cocktail the Painkiller, it better pack a punch. Hailing from the British Virgin Islands, where it was invented sometime in the early 1970s, this twist on the Piña Colada does precisely that. Jammed full of fruity, tropical flavors, the Painkiller was later claimed by Pusser’s Rum, whose trademarked recipe tilts heavy on the pineapple juice. This version dials back the P.J. and ups the rum a half ounce for a more boozy, balanced drink.

Are we entering a buyers market? The time maybe now!

Friends and Clients —If you've been looking to buy a home for a while, you'll want to read this email.You see, for several years now, we've been in a definite seller's market.Home prices kept rising. Demand was high. Bidding wars were common.But now, there are clear signs that the housing boom is coming to an end.
Home price growth is slowing; it’s currently the lowest it’s been in two years. Price cuts are becoming increasingly common, as an average of 17% of home listings saw their price decrease—a four-year high.
