I ran across this, accidentally, while cruising through some 'reels' on Facebook.For those of you youngsters, it's an oldie, but a goodie... a Jackson Browne song from the golden ages of the 70's... Experience the magic of collaboration as Playing For Change brings together the legendary Jackson ...
I'm a huge Joni Mitchell fan, and was today-years-old when I discovered that one of my personal favourite Joni Mitchell tunes, 'Twisted', (from her 1974 album titled Court and Spark) was a cover of a song written and performed by Annie Ross in 1952, accompanied by Count Basie on the piano (yes, t...
Today, I was sent by a colleague to meet a vendor who was delivering a refrigerator at one of our listings at a condo during the wee hours of the morning.  My colleague told me that she had notified John, the maintenance man, that we had permission to use the freight elevator.The truck arrived, t...
Before we get our collective Realtor underwear in a bundle, we have all seen much worse things occur whilst in our duties as  Realtors.This is a case of a Realtor, showing a property to his buyer.  While he was waiting for his buyer to show up, he was waiting in the property, he went to the refri...
It's not uncommon, in our marketplace, when a new property comes on, to have it staged, to show it at their best.  They bring in furnishings, carpeting, sometimes even artwork, and it helps make the photos look better, and buyers, who admittedly have zero imagination, can then see how a room migh...

In a time when we have lots of more important things to think about, the powers that be have decided to put something shiny in front of usNASCARHere in the city of Big Shoulders we now have noisy racecars on our city streets.  We've been moaning and bitching for weeks about the upcoming street cl...
I don't typically love remakes, and this is a remake of a song from my youth sung by Fleetwood Mac, so it's surprising that I ran across a remake of the chain by the Highwomen (comprised of Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby) that I absolutely adore. This group of wome...
And in the naked light I saw... C'mon, you know that one snippet of a line caused you to start singing in your head, didn't it?  I saw this piece on CBS Sunday morning.  An interview with Paul Simon, and it made me smile, and it made me sad at the same time.Paul Simon, arguably my very favourite ...
I came across this, today, on someone else's Facebook page.  It isn't new, in fact it's a few years old.  But it's the first time I've seen in.  It's not by some brilliant scholar, it's, in fact, Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedian known for portraying Borat.But his words ring as true today, perhaps ...
