This post sounds Like a real downer based on the title, but it started with another Post in Response to a Contest - Why I Chose Real Estate. I wrote about my mother in that post and it was asked me How she died? I have wanted very much to write this out - if nothing else for myself and because I need to tell the story. The climax of this Story is my Kindergarten Experience! So Charles has given me the chance to tell it. My mother was born in December of 1942 the 7 and last child. She (15 comments)
Active Rain - SEO - Ethics - And Just Plan Stupid Questions! - 02:01 PM
Active Rain - SEO - Ethics - And Just Plan Stupid Questions! I have a listing coming up (I hope) and it has gotten me thinking about how to market properties on Active Rain. I have started using Real Bird and Pasting the Real Bird HTML for the Listing in Active Rain. But I had a number of questions and issues on Driving Traffic to the Blog and then the web site for the property. Many people like to get the address as a Web Site Like 1233Main.com or something. However, this presumes they know the address already when people want (7 comments)

I think God Gives us kids so we know how he feels! - 08:07 PM
I had kids because I wanted to have fellowship with them. I wanted to create something that was part of me. I wanted them to reflect me and my values. I think that is why God created us too. However, my kids often do not obey me, they try and manipulate me, they fight over silly stuff, they get involved in petty disputes, they don't spend enough time with me and sometimes when they do they are painful to be around. Often they think they are getting away with something because I do not call them on it right away - (4 comments)

Why Can't I Sell My House In Jacksonville, Florida? - 01:17 PM
It started out innocently enough. Mr. and Mrs. Homeowner decided they wanted to sell their house so they could move "back home." They told the agent they decided to hire that although they loved their time living in Florida, their roots were elsewhere and their kids had long moved away so there was nothing keeping them here. Nothing except the house they owned and the fact that they needed to sell it to finance their move and purchase a smaller place when they got back home. In fact, they were so eager to get on with their lives that they had already (1 comments)
