Silent Saturday-Zion's Majesty - 04/30/11 10:00 PM
My family and I love Zion National Park and the best thing about it, it's only 45 minutes away from my front door! I was running through my photos of the park and came across this one that I took last year. This photo reminds me of the peace and tranquility I feel when I'm in Zion, which is often missing from my day to day life-LOL. When I look at these majestic views it helps me put things back into perspective. I realize that there's a whole lot more out there than my hectic days and helps me remember to (8 comments)

Silent Saturday-Aaahhhh Yes.... - 04/23/11 06:01 PM
Aaahhhh, yes... we finally got our pool ready for summer and my 10 year old son has been enjoying it today! We've had to do some minor repairs on the tile work and replace the burned out lights. This required draining the pool and starting over this year. My husband finally finished getting all the work done, then we had to refill it. That process takes a couple of days, then it's on to balancing the chemicals. Today, it's finally ready to swim in and my son didn't waste any time. The pool is only about 72 degrees, which is 15 (8 comments)

I've been reading so many Active Rain success stories lately I thought I'd add my own to the list.

I found Judy Orr and contacted her regarding my clients. She was great and soooo diligent! The property my clients had to sell was a little older and needed some updating. The sellers also had a higher price in mind than the market would bear, (11 comments)

The recession has left a mark on prospective buyers who have shifted their perspective on the housing they need and want.
