It is a good thing I captured this photo yesterday. The winds were so strong today that there are few leaves left on these same trees (which made for a day of raking today after church. These trees are mostly Ash trees. The leaves go from green to yellow. After the Ash's leaves fall we usually ge...
My Bride left our carrot crop in the ground. I think I pulled one or two scrawny ones out of the ground over the summer. She said you are supposed to wait for the first freeze before pulling them. Had it been me I would have declared crop failure about two months ago. As it turns out I think the ...
We had only 16 closings this week, far better than the 9 of last week. Of the homes that closed this week the average days on market was 140 days (nothing to be alarmed about as this number is a bit skewed being one of the homes was on the market for about two years). The chart above is the total...

The chart above is the total MLS activity for the week. T...
DON'T BUY THE FARM!You don't have to buy a farm to enjoy living outside of Minot. Enjoy the tax benefits, avoid the "good old boys" political club, and even raise chickens if you want.With this home you don't even have to buy a tractor while living in the country. The lot is only slightly larger ...
Over the last 10 or so years there seems to be a real preoccupation with death and death symbols, I don't get it. Of course I remember some of the outlandish things Alice Cooper did 45 years ago and I thought it was cool but I was a teen then and most adults recognized that AC was in it for the s...
And you thought I was talking about politics.We don't see a lot of balloons here so when this one passed over tonight I had to test out my telephoto lens. The balloon was traveling at a pretty good clip and was a fair distance before I got the camera in hand.
The change of the seasons reminds me of the worst muscle pain I ever had.If you are guessing that it had something to do with shoveling snow you would only be half right.The incident happened about 30 years ago when I was single and in peak physical condition. (no that is not me to the left, back...
