About The Orchards Some wonderful buyer clients of mine are closing on a newly constructed home in The Orchards in Mukwonago, WI. Since it is new construction, I don't have a typical data sheet for the home. The home was built by William Ryan Homes. The Orchards offers peaceful country living with proximity to all modern amenities.Many residential lots, situated on rolling orchard lands, offer views of the surrounding country landscape. Take a walk across the street to The Elegant Farmer and browse the expansive selection of local produce, baked goods and gourmet pantry staples. Experience the eclectic shops (7 comments)
Adult Truths! - 09/20/11 10:31 AM
This was emailed to me by a friend...pretty funny. ADULT TRUTHS 1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. 2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. 3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. 4. There is great need for a sarcasm font. 5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? 6. Was learning cursive really necessary? 7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5.

Good News For Animal Lovers! - 09/18/11 09:20 AM
Dear Kristin, I'd like to share some great and exciting news!After years of campaigning by animal advocates, a group of 38 chimpanzees who had been abused in painful hepatitis and HIV experiments for decades in an Austrian laboratory were finally released to a sanctuary in Germany. Go to PETA.org to watch the video of the chimpanzees as they step out of their enclosures and into daylight for the first time in 30 years.Thanks to the many compassionate people who took time to speak out in behalf of these chimpanzees, they are now living together happily at an animal sanctuary where they (14 comments)
Anyone who suffers from arthritis knows how painful a disease it is. The pain is relentless—every move can be excruciating. Elephants used in the circus are susceptible to arthritis because of constant confinement and being forced to perform grueling tricks over and over, facing punishment if they do not comply. Acclaimed actor Cloris Leachman exposes the suffering of these arthritic elephants in a shocking video for PETA. Karen, Nicole, and Sara—three elephants Ringling hauls from town to town chained in cramped boxcars—exhibit serious lameness and stiffness. Nicole and Karen also suffer from arthritis, and Sara, who is only 10 years (10 comments)

Funny Friday, Church Fart! - 09/09/11 09:52 AM
My mom forwarded this to me.....he he! "An elderly couple is attending a church service. About half way through, she writes a note and hands it to her husband. It says, "I just let out a silent fart. What do you think I should do?" The husband scribbles back,"Put a new battery in your hearing aid!"
Do You Speak Pizza? - 09/08/11 09:52 AM
I guess I have PIZZA on the brain, since I plan on ordering some tonight for the Packer Game tonight!!! GO PACK (Sorry Tony!). I saw this interesting article about Pizza Lingo and had to share some of the terms...interesting!
Leopard Spots: The air bubbles that swell in the crust when it bakes. Seeing a few of these means the dough has been properly fermented, and your slice will be light and airy! Cornicione: The outermost lip of the pizza (and the Italian word for an architectural ledge). Pros distinguish it from the word "crust" which they reserve (17 comments)

I just love hummingbirds! I wish I would see more of them during the summer months, and found out some helpful tips to attract them. Here is how: 1. Grow late-blooming nectar sources. Hummers favor tubular-shape blooms in bright red and orange, including salvia, bee balm,hyssop phlox, butterfly weed, and lantana. For more plant suggestions, go to BHG.com/hummingbirdplants. 2. Offer shelter. It may seem as if they never stop their frenetic search for food, but hummingbirds do rest. And, when they do, they prefer perching on hidden branches, particularly those of evergreens. 3. Serve fast food. Sugar water (29 comments)

Stand Up For Your Health! - 09/01/11 09:52 AM
Americans spend an average of 54 hours a week sitting---in the car, at the computer, in front of the television---and studies show that doing so contributes to the rising rates of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. But taking frequent short breaks, even just to stand in place, can undo the negative effects. Getting on your feet an extra one to two hours a day will shrink your waist and decrease blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Even the busiest person can seamlessly integrate a bit of extra activity in his/her life. Here's how: --Walk while you talk. Move around your house when you (17 comments)
