Super 8 Meme - 05/29/08 07:53 AM
My wife, Sandra Cummings, dumped on me by sticking my name at the top of her list of victims assigned to complete the task of answering 8 questions that can be quite revealing to those prone to psychoanalysis interpretation. For anyone new to blogging, a MeMe is a request to reveal several tid-bits that readers don’t know about the chosen one, in this case ME. I generally let it all hang out so there are not many secrets. Who is your favorite musical artist? The musical question was covered in detail some time ago. If I was forced to pick just (24 comments)
Yale Graduation - 2008 - 05/26/08 05:45 PM
Today the blue skies of New Haven were exceptionally clear as I viewed Harkness Tower from my ceremonial seat during the 307th Commencent at Yale University. The sun was hot but a cool breeze refreshingly swept through the Old Campus Courtyard most of the morning. Among the highlights of the outdoor ceremony was a most notable face in the crowd. The Magical Mystery Tour of life brought none other then Sir Paul McCartney to the Yale Commons to receive an Honorary Doctor of Music Degree. The best things in life may be free but a certain satisfaction comes from hard work (13 comments)
Reflections on Reaching the Peak with Team in Training - 05/19/08 06:32 PM
As many of you know back in January I signed on with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's TEAM IN TRAINING. Since I've always been very level headed I took their sales hype about participation being a Life Changing Experience with a grain of salt and fully expected fundraising to be a difficult task. Sunday morning as I drove to our longest scheduled run of 20 miles I was reflecting back on the 16 weeks leading up to this point. During the early months my time was consumed with raising money. I sent out Press Releases and mailed letters to family, friends (9 comments)
Help Me Understand My Errors with 1031 Tax-Free Exchanges - 05/12/08 03:37 PM
Well.... Last week I was Tee'd Off at the apparent incompetence of the On-Line Continuing Education that is required to renew my Real Estate License but after a week of delaying another afternoon of agony I decided to take my final course today. My choice was to learn about 1031 Tax-Free Exchanges. Math has always been one of my strong subjects so on the list of educational courses I ASSUMED this course would be both beneficial and relatively pain free! I'm not quite half way through the material but I am thoroughly disgusted. Will someone PLEASE point out what I am (14 comments)
Real Estate Continuing Education..... - 05/06/08 04:57 AM
For Tee'd Off Tuesday this week I will stay on topic and discuss Real Estate. May is license renewal month in Connecticut and this year since I have been busy preparing to run the Rock-n-Roll Marathon with the Team in Training I have not yet completed my required continuing education classes. In past years I have always gone the traditional route and sat through each class but running 5 days a week consumes many hours so I decided to try the on-line course that allows me to fit the hours into my schedule. The first two courses went pretty smooth, Current Issues (29 comments)
