I found these on the side of a building while I was driving down Concord Blvd. in St. Paul Sunday afternoon. I have lived in St. Paul forever and have driven down the street many times before but never noticed the vases on the wall of the Mexican grocery store. Naturally I had to go around the block a few times, find a place to park and take pictures of the building and the artwork. I did not know one of the photos would end up on my real estate blog but it did as a follow up to a post (17 comments)
Which is blog platform is the best? - 08/16/07 08:58 AM
I found something on the internet this morning that is going to rock the real estate blogoshere: * Upgrading to TypePad just got easier One of more popular feature requests lately has been a way to make it easy to upgrade from a Wordpress blog to TypePad. So yesterday afternoon we enhanced the Import / Export functionality to support importing your WordPress blog to TypePad via the WordPress eXtended RSS export format.

Of all the people that I met in person at Inman Connect Jeff Turner was one of them. I say met in person because we actually met last winter when i offered him a cup of tea and a conversation, all virtual of course. He is just as delightful in person as he is online.

After all these months I finally decided to try Jeff's product, (14 comments)

Un-Social Networking By: Larry Cragun of Real Estate Undressed There is a lot of talk and type about social networking. There are a lot of business models looking to monetize the concept. Cool. What about the un-social networking? Is there a way to monetize that? There must be. Why do I assume such a thing? It exists is why. I approach this real estate blogging adventure with a clear vision of a few things. For example, I know I am a little fish in a big pond. I know that some read me and continue, and some read (5 comments)
Bridge collapse - 08/07/07 03:02 PM
Bridge Collapse Thanks to the Active Rain members who knew I was traveling last week and alerted me to the disaster at home. Much appreciated. It took a few hours to contact my family as the phone circuits were over loaded. It really is a site to behold and hard to beleive. I had to go see the bridge collapse for myself yesterday. This is as close as I could get with a camera, but was able to see the entire bridge while I was driving across a nearby bridge. There are still 8 people missing. There is (9 comments)
