Table PC's are going Out; iPads are in! - 05/20/10 05:08 PM
I just got back from a broker open house in White Oak Landing presented by one of Baton Rouge's top listing agents.

When we ask questions and when we write blogs and any time we interact, we are making some kind of impression. This story tells it all: A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the groceryStore. As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, "Son, Can you tell me where the Post Office is?"The little boy replied, "Sure! Just go straight down this street a coupla blocks and turn to your right."The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "I'm the new pastor in town.I'd like (3 comments)
