When we were younger we knew one thing for sure. If you wanted grandma's attention, you didn't go to her house when the Cubs or the Bears were playing. It's not that she was rude about it; she was just completely engrossed. With time, her focus on the game was even more intense. Age had claimed m...

In Arizona, it's not uncommon to find many homes priced in the low $100's. Such homes will have monthly mortgage payments just above or below $1,000/month - depending on the loan. When comparing homes, the buyer will normally be able to add the other monthly responsibilities: Telephone Water Elec...

On 9/12/2007 I posted what I thought would be very cool news. The post was titled, "The Housing Giants Sortable List of Builders" The post included a link to a list that HousingZone.com has been keeping ... a list of the top builders in the nation.

If I'm unfamiliar with something I want someone to give me a hand. Or at least a few rules of thumb. Such tips can be helpful as a guideline until one acquires enough familiarity to draw larger conclusions. Right now Arizona has quite a few bank owned properties on the market. These are homes th...

My dog needs a job. I'm serious. She's an outdoor dog and she seems, I dunno, fairly happy. She's got a half acre to roam, a small collection of toys, and birds to chase. But there's something missing. I can sense it. Anytime I approach the back door she jumps to attention. She's eager to do som...

I spent so little time in the place of my birth that I had almost no chance of getting to know many of my predecessors. So, when a distant relative once produced a box of photographs, I remember peering at the slightly familiar faces.  We have this human custom... we expect people to smile and l...
