Houston’s housing market continued beating records in 2017, which ended up being the strongest year ever. “No one could ever have imagined 2017 turning out to be a record-setting year for the Houston real estate market, which had weathered the effects of the energy slump only to have Harvey strike such a devastating blow,” HAR Chair Kenya Burrell-VanWormer with JP Morgan Chase said in HAR's release. http://bit.ly/2DgVOHX

An amazing list of stories about courageous canines that took on situations by the scruff of the neck and emerged victorious.

    30+ Times Dogs Surprised Humans With Their Incredibly Heroic Acts
    Many of us, especially those of us who grew up with TV classics like Lassie, have a soft spot for heroic dogs. Dogs are everyday heroes in so many ways, from guide dogs to rescue dogs and those that keep us safe by sniffing out explosives and drugs, there are countless tales of man's best friend standing up and doing amazing things.

That is one big 100 lb puppy.

    Shelter Takes In The Biggest Puppy They've Ever Seen
    Weighing in at just under 100 pounds, 10-month-old Fluffy is a Caucasian shepherd, a massive working breed native to Russia and Armenia once used to protect livestock from wolves and bears. Their size and strength gives them the nickname "Russian Bear Dogs" - and Fluffy is quite the teddy bear herself.

Director Jon Schwartz will be on-site to discuss and answer questions as he reflects on his classic 1987 documentary on the 60-year history of an archetypal American neighborhood in Houston called Riverside; and its experience of the classic syndrome of integration, real estate blockbusting, white flight, and regentrification. All HPL programs are free of charge and open to the public. We request that you please RSVP to attend due to limited seating available.
