Babyback ribs, echo back and better conversations - 06:57 AM
We're gonna go to Applebee's, a casual family restaurant right across from Ikea. We're not here for the 'babyback babyback ribs' right now, but to watch an experiment in progress... The place is quite busy and a young waitress is taking orders. None of the customers are aware that they are taking part in a scientific experiment by psychologist Dr. Rick van Baaren. And neither is the waitress -- her instructions are to treat all customers the same, with only one exception: With customers on the left side of the restaurant, the waitress writes down each order and repeats it back (6 comments)

As a real estate professional who has earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation, I make it my mission to know the best possible options available to distressed homeowners for both their present AND their future.

The Tale of a Bully - 08:32 PM
A true untrue story… How can a true story be untrue? You're right, it can't. It is like a fisherman telling his friends about a fish he caught 30 years ago. They smile, but they don’t buy it. But he is telling the truth, he really caught this humongous fish... Will they ever believe him? Stories like this belong to time in my past, and weird times reveal weird stories. So, here is the story and you be the judge. In the Soviet Union the members of the Communist party had monthly party meetings. Every place of work had a party (25 comments)

What's in a Name - 05:27 AM
Names can at times be so fitting, so apt. Yet names are not usually attached to objects or things with exceptions. For example, ships and boats always seem to get a name. My girls have given names to every car we own, plus my boat and our canoe. House's do not have names, unless they are some grand estate or manor (a pretentious way to say big house with lots of land). Sometimes even items within a house can get a name. When there is an ancient and faithful furnace occupying a dark corner of the basement, it can be affectionately (8 comments)
