Kindle Lovers, Protect Your Investment (read . . . new toy) - 09/10/10 09:29 PM
Be sure to check out the handmade zippered covers at the Craft Antique Co-op in Greece NY at only $19.90. The outside has a zippered pocket for the charger and inside is a firm backed piece with elastic in the corners to hold in your hand. Judy Adams makes them, she started because she had a customer ask her to custom make one for her - Judy didn't know what a Kindle was. So, today she mentioned she hadn't sold any yet that were not custom orders, I said, Judy, you have to go where the Kindle users go! LOL. So (2 comments)

It's Raining Men . . . Well, Really More Friends and Family - 09/08/10 11:57 PM
There's been a lot this week about family, friends, people we love, and people we've lost. Good things and bad, hard times and uplifting times. So, I figured, I may as well get another one out on the table. Earlier this week I wrote about football, and my younger son. My older son John played in high school too for 3 years, if you ask him about it, he'll tell you he played left bench. He was a better wrestler than football player. He is better at things that he is more independent at. But, alas, there were serious problems with (3 comments)
Holy Reunion! The Cardinal Mooney Kids from Our Lady of Mercy! - 09/07/10 11:55 PM
This past Saturday was my High School Reunion. We are the class of 1970 (you can figure the math!) I am so glad I attended. I have gone to all of the reunions they've had and have really been so glad. Cardinal Mooney was a split co-ed school. Physically, it was a "V" shaped school - a mirror image on each side. From the front, the east wing was the boys school and the west wing the girls. Heaven help the poor soul who wandered onto the wrong side! So, for the most part the girls and boys only knew each (4 comments)
Preparing for the Listing Appointment . . . Pointed or Pretty? - 09/03/10 11:58 PM
OK, Day 3! I was struggling again with a topic and then thought about all of the time I spent earlier today to prepare for a listing appointment tomorrow. The seller called me because I send just listed and just sold cards every opportunity to a neighborhood I have been very successful in for the past 32 months. 11 listings and sales, a new listing on Tuesday that is ready to be submitted and the possible listing tomorrow. I have only had one expired in the neighborhood, a short sale that was already too far gone when I listed it and (1 comments)
What is the Point of Disclosing an Old Roof or Anything Else? - 09/02/10 11:45 PM
Ok, ok, I am struggling here! 8 hours sleep in the past 2 nights doesn't leave too many brain cells left for blogging. And today is my second day, so I have to get this in. Well, I have noticed recenlty that roofs are back in style again. Along with air conditioners. My last 3 transactions have gone like this: 1) My buyer, submitted an offer on a moderately priced home (under $65,000) just over 10% UNDER list price. The seller accepted the offer. Disclosure: roof age is unknown, roof is very obviously old, will need a new roof. We discussed it (34 comments)
Let's See, Hmmm, $8000 Tax Credit or a Job? Tax Credit or a Job? Hmmm... - 09/01/10 10:35 PM
The Homebuyer Tax Credits are Making The News, Again . . . . Jobs, we need jobs!! But, we need to MAKE things in America! My husband is a weldor fabricator - 35+ years experience. He is working 4 days a week at his company - that's what they did so everyone could stay working. Some weeks it's 3. He has worked on things that have gone into space, surgical tools, wrought iron fences, eyeglass hinges. boat props, you name it. Most of the jobs in the area for welders want to pay $12-14 / hour and there are quite a (6 comments)
