Making Better Decisions With More Information - 12/26/10 06:48 PM
Making Better Decisions With More Information This is an example where having just one additional fact can change the decisions we make. Believe it or not...this is the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The Radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on Oct. 10, 1995. US Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid a collision. CND reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision. US Ship: This is the Captain (3 comments)
Value vanished into thin air... - 12/24/10 10:58 AM
Here is an interesting commentary on the real estate market's vanished values. Do you think that the market will rebound? If prices rose 3%, would you consider that a rebound?

At the end, of Beverly Avenue you'll find one of several streets named after the body of water they front - Chesapeake Drive.

Family Plot - Hollowed Ground, Material Fact, What Else? - 12/04/10 07:58 PM
Family Plot - Hollowed Ground, Material Fact, What Else? Is hallowed ground a material fact needing disclosure in the sale of real estate? Today while out photographing a property for a colleague I came across the family burial plot on the lot upon which the house sat. In the pictures you can just see the nearby homes. If it hadn't been early winter, I might have missed this sacred spot in the woods where many family members and relatives now rest.
As I carefully tread around the outside of the family burial site, I realized there where both marked and unmarked (4 comments)
