One More for the Veterans - 05/29/11 10:30 AM
When traveling I often mention to my driver (wife) that we should pull over in the next town and check out a Vietnam Veterans' Memorial. I must have seen a hundred of them by now, but never tire of pausing for a moment and bowing my head in rememberance of what all our veterans have done for us. I like to think that other countries have veterans too, and even if they opposed us in battle, it was their leaders who sent them into the fray. Veterans from every country, from every war, get my respect all year long. My latest (14 comments)
Eileen Black - Bainbridge Island Washington - 05/25/11 09:19 PM
I have to admit that like many people, I misjudged someone. Here's the story. Last fall my mother-in-law passed away. She had passed 90 and still lived in her own home, alone, but a fall and complications took their toll. She lived on Bainbridge Island, Wa, a few miles from her daughter Ellen. Her other daughter and I are Realtors® only 10 miles, a ferry ride and light years away. Ellen and Marjie's brother Scott lives in New Hampshire. The home would eventually be put on the market and since Marjie and I are in the business, we knew what had (16 comments)

You're the seller. The sign post in your yard has been leaning toward the street for so long you can tell it's trying to run away. What do you do? Blame your agent? Blame the market? Blame the banks and their lousy short sales and foreclosures? Let me help you here. There are only three reasons your home didn't sell. And you the seller are directly responsible (31 comments)
Bike riding in Minneapolis - 05/09/11 06:04 PM
Spring arrived in Minneapolis on Friday the 6th of May. We took advantage of sunshine and 60 plus degrees for an 18 mile ride down Wirthe Parkway to the Greenway. Lunch and Midtown Market and then east to the Missisippi River and north past the University, finishing on Plymouth Ave and back to my brother's house.
Minnesota has more paved, rails-to-trails biking trails than any other state. We liked it so well that a different 6 of us drove to Wayazata Saturday and enjoyed even a nicer day riding 26 miles On the Dakota trail through the Lake Minnetonka area (14 comments)
Don't Buy A Home Now - 05/03/11 06:49 PM
There are reasons why I say don't buy a home now. Let me give them to you.
