    My husband headed out of town last Thursday. As I watched his car pull away, it dawned on me. Shoot. I have been so busy working that I forgot to line up a home improvement project. He never knows when he leaves what he'll find when he comes back to our Land Park home except that I will have...
I never know where new business might come from, but I generally know why. Most of my business comes from one of two places: the Internet or referrals. I know that the reasons these people are contacting me are because they heard good things about me or they read my web site and are familiar wit...
Finding out if your prospective landlord is about to go into foreclosure is simply a good idea for any tenant who is contemplating renting. You don't have to wait until the Sheriff shows up at your door with an eviction notice. You can be notified immediately when a Notice of Default is filed by...

At first glance, I thought a little girl had tried to etch her name into my driveway. At the bottom of the driveway, right next to the sidewalk, I discovered the letters L-I-L scratched on the cement. I asked my cement dude about it, and he assured me that when the driveway finally cures, it wil...
Thanks to Tom Braatz . . . I originally found this on Tom's blog and tried it out. Sent it to a couple friends, one of whom doesn't do much online, and she was totally astonished. I think it's hilarious. At the end of the video is a link where you can set up your own video and email it with your...
If you've always wanted to run your own business in Land Park, here's a chance to land your very own ice cream and coffee shop for $150. The catch?
