salem: Oregon AG warns about fees on loan offers - 03/04/09 04:37 PM
The Oregon attorney general's office is warning homeowners facing foreclosure about offers to modify their mortgage loan for a fee. State officials say some companies charge fees for services that homeowners can get for free by visiting a nonprofit counselor or by talking directly with their lender. Loan modification companies have been targeting homeowners in Oregon through fliers, direct mail and phone calls.

But most homeowners can get the same result for no charge from a nonprofit counselor or by dealing directly with (4 comments)

Mary Kay National Sales Director Carol Anton recently sent this to my wife. When I read it I thought of the current economy and real estate in general. A carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee...You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again. A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up, She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new (8 comments)

I just wanted to wish everyone here on Activerain a Happy Holiday and a wonderful New Year. I have been inspired by the recent Lexus commercials. I want to know what was the greatest Christmas gift that you have every received. I also want to know what the worst gift was.....I will start it off.

salem: Salem Oregon's Bush Park - 12/11/08 01:13 PM
This information was taken from Wikipedia because sometimes they just can say it better. Bush's Pasture Park (90.5 acres) is a public park and botanical garden in Salem, Oregon, United States. It is also the site of the Asahel Bush House, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The park and Italianate Victorian house date to 1877-1878 when they were built for Asahel Bush, founder of the Oregon Statesman newspaper and subsequently of the Ladd and Bush Bank. In 1882 Bush added a still-extant conservatory for his daughters, claimed to be the first greenhouse west of the Mississippi River. (4 comments)
salem: Why Salem? Why Not? - 12/05/08 03:48 PM
As we near the end of the year, it is nice to reflect back on a wonderful year in Salem, Oregon. I couldn't help but take a moment to celebrate all of Salem's great things. And so, with these thoughts, I've decided to share my Top 10 reasons why everyone should choose Salem for today and tomorrow! #10 Small Town Feel.

Many admire Oregon's environmental commitment. You might not know that Salem was the (16 comments)
