This is my shortest blog (my personal record). With the new rules about reblogging - requirement to add a 25-word introduction in order to get points, on the dashboard we now most often would not see where the original blog and where is a reblog. I think it would be best if AR could somehow mark the reblogs right there on the dashboard. Some icon, or a word "reblog" would be fine. What say you? (21 comments)

To celebrate the award, the winery will be hosting a “Best of Connecticut” weekend on September 25-26, in conjunction with other (7 comments)
A Lurid Tale of Cutting and Hacking - 08:29 AM
A Lurid Tale of Cutting and Hacking, sounds like the description of a low budget horror movie or just another day in the life of a Connecticut home inspector. Power tools have sure made construction easier and more efficient...if used correctly. Because they can be almost effortless to use, simply switch them on and go at it, this leaves ample opportunity for the tool user to do some interpretive construction design. Stop and think about it; Back in the days when all someone had was a handsaw or drill, the individual wasn't inspired to do much more than the task immediately (8 comments)

What Will $1,000,000 Buy in Austin Texas Homes? - 09:09 PM
One question that always comes up when talking to people across the country is, "Why is everyone moving to Austin?"
