10 Safer Winter Driving Tips - 01/27/09 05:23 PM
Here are ten tips for safer driving during winter here in Wildwood, Missouri or anywhere experiencing winter weather: 1) Take your time. Plan for delays and drive with caution. 2) Pack emergency supplies in your vehicle: food, water, blanket, shovel, sand, ice melt. 3) Keep your gas tank at least half full because you never know when you are going to be stuck in a jam. 4) Do NOT PASS snow plows.

Going to the Movies - 01/23/09 10:03 PM
We went to the movies this evening to see Inkheart. It was a good entertaining movie. Not too much violence, not too scary, no rude language and no sexual innuendos.. Obviously, I am not going to ruin the story for anyone, what I really want to talk about is rudeness in the theater. Has anyone been to the theater on a Friday or Saturday night recently? I was appalled at the number of youngsters dropped off at the door to be left to watch the show with no parental supervision. Why do people believe the staff at the theater to be (16 comments)

Let's Talk About Aluminum Wiring - 01/20/09 09:37 PM
To the inspectors here in the Rain, let's talk about aluminum wiring. I was showing a home today and as we were standing in the basement, I noticed this orange and black warning label on the electric panel. It stated the home had aluminum wiring and this was a potentially dangerous item. Of course, my buyers are not happy about this since the house has met their criteria. I want to know, on a home 40+ years old, how bad/dangerous is aluminum wiring? Should the buyers beware? Should they ask for the home to be re-wired? Thank you in advance for (32 comments)

I left home without it!! - 01/13/09 11:34 AM
As I was driving to my office meeting this morning, I noticed something was missing... I panicked when I noticed my cellphone was not attached to my belt. I was already 2.5 miles from my home. I stopped and frantically looked around the car. My phone was not in the car. I had pulled off the road so I turned the car around and traveled back to my house. As I am driving, I am trying to think where I could have left the phone. I am usually never without my phone. It has become my security "blanket". I reached the house and (26 comments)
