Steve and I recently met the owners of most of the shops at Stone Creek Village, and we were excited about the event they are having this weekend!  (Well, I'm excited about the pre-Holiday Shopping, Steve is more into the Holiday "Cheer" and the Band!)!  If you have time on Saturday night - bring...

Maybe you heard that Uncle Sam, who has been giving money out to just about EVERYBODY lately, has a check waiting for you... if you buy a house before next summer! What is it?  How does it work?

With the jobs numbers coming out today (highlighting the fact that many people have lost their jobs in the last quarter), I thought it was a good idea to remind folks that WE HAVE JOBS in the Triangle!  I think it's one of the reasons we are considered one of the countries top "Recession Proof" ...
