LinkedIn Corp, the online professional network fosters a new concept for influencing business operations especially in the high tech field. Remember how “Taking your kids to work” was all the rage? Well now the latest trend is “Bring in your Parents Day!”
In 18 countries LinkedIn held their third annual observance of “Bring in your Parents day” on November 5, 2015. This is not a show and tell experience. Companies are staging classes, presentations and fun events involving parents. It’s a novel approach to bridge the gap between young professionals and educating their parents.

We weathered the rain on Friday but it was tough navigating! Even the Austin Airport was closed for part of the day.

Date night with Geno at Eddie V's was wonderful. Sunday morning Hudson's mom ran a 10 mile run and Hudson ran with her in a 1K. Received an offer on a new listing and now it is … (18 comments)

nw austin: Are you restricting your home search with too much criteria? - 10/29/15 12:11 PM
I read a featured post by Bill Spear entitled “Don’t judge a home by its age” and agree there are many buyers that believe a home of 10 years or older will need lots of work. They visualize mechanicals and updates needing to be addressed. The truth is there may be many advantages to buying a home older than 10 years that has been cared for meticulously by homeowners who take pride in their home. Limiting a search criteria to 10 years or newer can be a painful mistake.
Unfortunately there is no search criteria in the MLS for well maintained homes … (37 comments)
