Almost 1.2 million Texans in addition to myself went online and voted for our new state license plate design. I am proud to say the design I voted for “Lone Star Texas” was the clear winner capturing almost almost half the votes.
I suppose the Texas Department of Transportation wants to make sure no vote tampering occurred because they have yet to declare the results official. It was really all for fun anyway. Since the Texas Transportation Commission will be making the final decision on February 28th.
The new plates are needed because its projected that by the end of 2008 we will have exhausted our current six character combination plates. Its no wonder we are running out since the state of Texas’s population increases by roughly 1,000 people every day. In addition to a new plate design the number and letter combination will be increased from six to seven to accommodate these new Texans.
If you missed your chance to vote you are going to have wait longer than another four years. Based upon population projections, The Texas Department of Transportation anticipates the seven character combination pattern to last 35 years.
Don’t look for the new plates to be on my car anytime soon. Even though my favorite design “unofficially” won, I would have to pay for them since my plates are not seven years old. And I can find other things to buy for my car instead of plates like ….. GAS.

She recently sold our home that had been a difficult listing. Not only would I not sell a home with any other realtor, I would not buy a home with anyone else. Why? Jill is a Five Star realtor. One has to perform at the top of their profession on a consistent and lengthy basis to receive such a designation. Jill has done so and received this award year after year after year. At our meet and greet get together she offered two transformative suggestions for our home. She continued to propose ideas that led to the sale of our home. Her work ethic was exceptional. She held open houses very frequently. She even picked up leaves when I was busy on another task for a showing. Jill is a wonderful person that really cares about selling your house. Her advice with negotiations and closing was all we could ask for and resulted in us getting our asking price. Trust her. We did and could not be happier. read less
