Atlanta Clean Car Campaign. Stow It - Don't Show It - 11/23/09 08:05 AM
When you read the title of THIS post, "Atlanta Clean Car Campaign. Stow It - Don't Show It, you think what on earth is this about? Washing my car? No, not quite. Several months ago, the Atlanta Police Department launched a program called Atlanta Clean Car Campaign in response to car break-ins that were happening in Atlanta, particularly in Zone 5, which is where Midtown and Downtown are located. People that live in the area, as well as those that don't were the direct cause of increased car break-ins because they were leaving items in their cars in plain sight. Here (5 comments)
Can We Have Our Cake AND Eat it Too? - 11/18/09 08:39 AM
This morning finds me very puzzled. Ok, I'll be the first to admit that I probably don't stay on top of current events like I should. Be they world, national or even local. The news can paint a picture, and you either believe it, or you take the time to research the topic and all sides of the topic, and learn more about the issue. I'm probably not a researcher. But, after reading two real estate related articles back-to-back, I had to stop and ask a simple question, "Can We Have Our Cake AND Eat It Too?" Here's how that question (6 comments)
Cook's Warehouse Grand Opening at Ansley Mall - 11/16/09 09:12 AM
This past Friday, Ray and I had the opportunity to attend Cook's Warehouse Grand Opening at Ansley Mall. For those of you that are not aware of this move, Cook's Warehouse was formerly located in the Amsterdam Walk shopping area off of Monroe Drive. This new location, gives the store a whole new look, and a great location, next to Blockbuster Video and just around the corner from.....a Publix Market! See, you can buy that standing rib roast, and then when you are on your way to the car and realize you don't have a roasting pan, there's Cook's Warehouse! If you (4 comments)
Midtown Atlanta Condo Market Report September 2009 - 11/15/09 10:27 AM
Midtown Atlanta Condo Market Report September 2009 Yes, it is November 15th, and I'm reporting on September! Actually, our numbers are not out till mid month, so I should be doing a quick follow up with October's numbers in the coming days. But, I wanted to get this report out, so you could see a true picture of the market. In preparing the Midtown Atlanta Condo Market Report, it kinda put the market into a harsh perspective. But a quick reference to this report will make it easy for any Seller to understand the current Midtown Atlanta Real Estate Market and (5 comments)
Veteran's Day Salute. Do I Make You Proud? - 11/11/09 08:36 AM
Veteran's Day Salute. Do I Make You Proud? I'm not a "military brat" in the sense that we did not move all over the place as many military families do. My Dad was in the Montana National Guard, and his highest position was brigadier general. He was the #2 in command of the Army National Guard in Montana before his retirement. I remember him packing to go to Guard Camp. I remember what he looked like each morning when he left for work, wearing his military uniform. He was in a civil service position for the National Guard, and was only (4 comments)
I heard of these things called camps. But I've never been able to attend. I had the first North Carolina REBARCamp on my travel schedule for Charlotte back in May, but it ended up not happening for me. So, when I learned of the Raleigh event, I was on board and nothin' was stopping me from ending my rein as a Camp Virgin!
At first, my plan was to take my car, enjoy the 6 hour drive listening to XM radio or some training cd's. But (28 comments)

Mary Norwood In Runoff For Mayor of Atlanta! - 11/04/09 09:35 AM
MARY NORWOOD IN RUNOFF FOR MAYOR OF ATLANTA! Last night, Ray, Yasiel and myself were at the post election party for Mary Norwood For Mayor. It was a first for all of us, and quite an exciting time. Exciting to be part of such a historic moment in the history of Atlanta. It's come down to a runoff election on December 1 between Mary Norwood and former State Senator Kasim Reed. Historic in the sense that if she wins, Mary Norwood will be the first white Mayor in the City of Atlanta in 36 years! Some amazing stuff. We had (2 comments)
