Have you ever wondered why April Fool’ Day is even a thing or why it got its own day?

Have you ever wondered why April Fool’ Day is even a thing or why it got its own day??

“On April 1, 1700, English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition of April Fools’ Day by playing practical jokes on each other.

Although the day, also called All Fools’ Day, has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, its exact origins remain a mystery.

Some historians speculate that April Fools’ Day dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, as called for by the Council of Trent in 1563. People who were slow to get the news or failed to recognize that the start of the new year had moved to January 1 and continued to celebrate it during the last week of March through April 1 became the butt of jokes and hoaxes.

These pranks included having paper fish placed on their backs and being referred to as poisson d’avril (April fish), said to symbolize a young, “easily hooked” fish and a gullible person.

April Fools’ Day spread throughout Britain during the 18th century. In Scotland, the tradition became a two-day event, starting with “hunting the gowk,” in which people were sent on phony errands (gowk is a word for cuckoo bird, a symbol for fool) and followed by Tailie Day, which involved pranks played on people’s derrieres, such as pinning fake tails or “kick me” signs on them.” ~

Super Bowl Sunday is Almost Here!

“Everyone knows that the Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year. But there’s a lot even the biggest football fan may not have heard about the big game. Here are craziest and most interesting Super Bowl facts to keep you going until kickoff!”……….

The ball is crafted by hand in the U.S.A.

No ordinary coin will do….. Don’t even think of flipping a penny or quarter to start off the Super Bowl. Each game gets it own unique coin crafted by the Highland Mint. The front of the coin features the Lombardi Trophy along with the helmets of the two teams playing. Super fans can purchase a replica coin after the game.

Each team gets a lot of balls. Over 100 each! Learn more:

The players drive in style!

What really happens during halftime?

Super Bowl = big bucks………..You might have known this Super Bowl fact already, but getting to the big game isn’t cheap. The average cost of Super Bowl 50 tickets in 2016 was over $4,700, says Brisa Trinchero, founder of, a ticket sales site. But not back in the day…Tickets for the very first Super Bowl in 1967 cost an average of $6, which was apparently too pricey for many. According to Trinchero, there were 30,000 empty seats!

Halftime performers make how much? Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and even Beyoncé didn’t get paid a single dime to perform at past Super Bowls. But don’t feel too badly for them. Trinchero shares that although they don’t get actual cash, the exposure can be worth tens of millions of dollars, and often the halftime show scores higher ratings than the actual game.

No e-tickets here….Unlike attending most sporting events today, the Super Bowl only issues and accepts paper tickets, says Trinchero.

It wasn’t always “super”

The Lombardi Trophy

It’s good to be family—or a friend

Those crazy-expensive ads…. This is another Super Bowl fact you’ve likely heard about before: Those ads are big money. On average, a 30-second Super Bowl spot runs in the millions. The most expensive of all time? A $12.4 million ad by Chrysler in 2011.

Lakewood Company Title Reviews

A huge THANK YOU to all those that took the time to review our title company. We really do strive to make our clients happy!

J.J. Chapa says: As a Realtor of a large team; we depend on high quality professionals to help our business run smoothly and our client’s to be well cared for. There is no other title company I would ever trust with this more than Lakewood Title. They are responsive, professional and provide the best client experience with the dedication to make convenience a tenant for our clients by working with them on closing times and locations. I’ve had them close a client in their home after business hours. There are no better folks to work with.

Kelley MacKay says: Tracy is very communicative easy to get a hold of and works hard to make things go smoothly. They go out of their way to make closings easy on the buyer seller and the agents.

Lisa Trees says: I have had the pleasure of working with Lakewood Title as a Realtor, and as a buyer. Without a doubt, their customer service exceeds all expectations. This amazing group of people truly care about their clients and their quality of work is out of this world.

Tracy and Mark are miracle workers!  Just had the worst lender of all time on a deal but thanks to Tracy Koonce and her constant diligence and Mark Carlson’s cool head in and quick thinking in a dire situation, they moved heaven and earth to get my client closed today!! He was able to make his flight this afternoon to leave on a long planned trip.  THANK YOU Lakewood Title!  You always do an amazing job for us.

Lakewood Title has been incredible to work with. We switched from a prior title company because we were not receiving the type of service that we required. We considered several title companies, but decided to give Lakewood Title a try. We close several deals every month and Lakewood Title has not only met, but has exceeded our expectations. Our latest closing required creative thinking to eliminate numerous problems and issues. Richard supplied the creative solutions, and Mary got it closed on time. Anyone with title needs should use this company.
