blogging: Old School Real Estate Search: Old Habits Die Hard - 12/02/06 08:48 AM

Some may think so. Unfortunately, we're not. Well maybe just a little. Being the blogoholics that we are, we were bouncing ideas off each other for a post and we thought, what if? What if we didn't answer our emails, post anything or comment anywhere for a week? Would anyone notice? Would anyone miss us? Would we be able to restrain ourselves? Arggghhh! Has (33 comments)
