Yesterday I posted a blog in the morning titled: Today Is Going To Be A Great Day! This was coming off a week where I had a negative vibe going. Something I don't fall into much, but it does happen time to time.  I just did not snap out of it as fast as I liked. I wrote the post in part to encour...
If you have been waking up feeling a bit negative lately its really not that easy to see today being a great day!  It takes a shift in mind set and that shift can be a battle if your feeling down for an extended period of time.  Your mind likes to play tricks on you and tell you all the things th...
We are now less that 48 hours from potential government shutdown.  I probably live in my own little tiny bubble but I am not hearing a lot of talk or panic person to person on this.  Certainly the news is giving it coverage and taking about the services we lose if there is a government shutdown. ...
I have been blogging on Active Rain since March of 2008.  For the first two years of my blogging I wrote a lot of spiritual and inspiration type of posts because I spend a lot of time studying that material and living it out in my life.  After a short break from blogging I came back last fall and...

Homes ar...
Every week is a good week to buy a house. However, on a Holiday week I think a lot of buyers and sellers have the thinking that its going to be a slow week.  This can be true.  Certainly a larger number of people plan vacations around Holidays like the 4th of July. Weekends in the summer can also...
This was a featured post a little earlier and its worth a look. I wonder if we will start seeing some subprime options soon?  There are worth people who don't fit the guidelines in lending right now.    According to an article written by Angela Pruitt at The Wall Street Journal, Lewis Ranieri is ...
I have seen this question come up every so often on Active Rain with fellow bloggers.  It something not everyone thinks of. It something at first that might surprise or scare a seller to think about doing.  However, if your getting some interest in your listing, but know offers it might be time t...
Its my sons 8th Birthday today!  We celebrated at my parents house last weekend, and tonight my wifes parents stopped by with treats and a bag of gifts!  He gets another party this weekends at his moms, so its his Birthday does not end today!  My brother took him to his first Target Field Twins g...
