Ideas Make the World Go Round - 09/17/11 07:31 AM
Ideas Make The World Go Round - Isn't that the solid truth. This post stresses the importance of ideas, our creativity, our ability to come up with a "better" way of doing things. So many times I hear the expression "if it ain't broke don't fix it" Baloney. Thank goodness we all do not think that way. There is always a better way to get it done and usually the person who implemented that "better way" profits from it greatly. Thanks Marte. You've got me thinking.

Flags on the Freeway - 09/11/11 08:23 AM
Flags on the Freeway. What a wonderful thing to do. Wish the word had spread sooner so more areas had done the same thing. Reflect, remember the day, the people we lost, the people who survived, and how this Country came together to fight back. Togetherness! we need lots more of that throughout the Country right now too. Via Brian Block -- Northern Virginia & D.C.

The Absorption rate for Pocono Homes for sale within Monroe County continues to climb. We did see a leveling during June and July as illustrated above. Personally I had anticipated seeing the Absorption rate go down for July and August but I did not get what I wanted. I know - Big Surprise - given the Economy. However, in reading other blogs here on Active Rain regarding the Absorption rate in other areas of the Country I am seeing areas where their Absorption rates are dropping so it is only a matter of time before ours do too given our (0 comments)
