It's a Wonderful World - THANKS TO ACTIVE RAIN! - 09/30/08 08:11 AM
A couple days ago I passed the 100,000 point milestone. And it has been a journey frought with questions, laughter, smiles and ... the blessing of making wonderful new friends from all corners of the country. Folks with like interests, similar goals, opposing goals and a wonderful outlook on the profession that we have chosen (or that has chosen us!).
Picture it ... April 20, 2007. I had been reading the posts on Active Rain for a couple of weeks. Trying to decide if I wanted to expose myself to the world of blogging. Trying to decide of I felt (31 comments)
SURPRISE, SURPRISE! AIN'T THAT SOMETHIN'! FORECLOSURE FRAUD ::: WHO COULD/WOULD HAVE FIGGERED ... - 09/22/08 08:35 AM
Remember the good ol' days? Sheriff Taylor would say something rhetorically profound and Gomer would always respond with, "Surprise, surprise!" Mayberry was a quaint little town, devoid of true crime and socio-political problems. Life was good - simple, pure, comfortable. ::: Whistling the theme from the Andy of Mayberry show ::: Then along comes progress, modernization, technology and political correctness. And we, collectively, shot ourselves in the foot. But as we evolved into a sophisticated, tech savvy, highly educated and upwardly mobile society ... we found ways to circumvent our own intelligence and progress. And quite innocently. Or at (9 comments)
We all know our national economy is in turmoil right now. We all know that real estate has slowed in more markets than not. We all know that this, too, shall pass. But while we know these things … are we really looking forward? Are we counting on ourselves to rise to the occasion? From what I read and hear … that might be a stretch. We are fearful of our investments, fearful of job losses, fearful of financial ruin that will compromise our ability to take care (9 comments)
DOWN-PAYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS :: Are they going to be OK? Stay tuned ... - 09/18/08 09:34 PM
There has been much conversation lately about the demise of the down payment assistance programs – primarily the Nehemiah Corporation. This type of program has been a true benefit for many that have wanted to purchase a home of their own. Now, some may say that if a person needs down payment assistance then they have no business buying a home. I could not disagree more. And this is why: Being short on down payment funds does not mean unable to afford a home. Down payment assistance can help lower the interest rate by increasing the percentage down – thus helping (9 comments)
GOD BLESS AMERICA!! Support the Troops Rally in Point Place (Toledo) Ohio - 09/11/08 10:19 AM
Toledo, OH It's a Wednesday evening, light breeze, comfortable temperatures and a setting that God must have designed especially for this event. Friendship Park - located in the Point Place neighborhood of Toledo. I had the honor of attending the 4th Annual Support the Troops Rally that is held in my little berg and am still in awe of all the folks that turned out. From infancy to WWII Vets - and every age in between. All together to celebrate and honor our servicemen and women for the sacrifices they give. All the branches of the armed forces were represented - (6 comments)
I'M STEAMED!!! And I'm ready to scream at somebody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - 09/08/08 07:45 AM
I am making this post a public one because I think that some people need a refresher on what a civilized society is. I am also hoping that if you happen to see yourself in this post, then PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get help. If you don't, the help you may wind up needing is a good attorney. What's all the fuss about? DISCRIMINATION!! Yep! It still exists. In this modern and progressive world, in a country that has taken in peoples from all over the world ... and there is DISCRIMINATION. So, please, take this as an education in where (23 comments)
