I have been on vacation (both literally and figuratively) so I have not been as active as usual on ActiveRain. This morning I logged on and came across an entry for this contest. Since I am always promoting contests as a great way to engage in all that ActiveRain can offer, I decided that I would...
Several years ago, I got a call from an old friend. He said his brother was ready to sell his home and would like to speak to me. Great address and great location...I was really excited. I met both brothers over there one afternoon. There was a quite a lot of prep work to do on the house. The wif...
Today is the day that my 'baby' gets back from camp. Well,he's not quite a baby, but a 15 year old young man. He has been away at Camp Twin Creeks, in Marlinton, WV for two weeks.

When my neighborhood was built in Northern Virginia, between 1994 and 1995, one of the favorite quick-growing trees to plant was the very pretty Bradford Pear. Now if you are not familiar with Bradford Pears, they grow quickly, flower in the Spring and just, generally, make a nice addition to the...
I first saw this when it was posted sometime last year by a favorite blogger here on ActiveRain, Craig Rutman. My son and I were at Target yesterday and he came out laughing because someone was on their Bluetooth and he thought they were talking to him. It reminded me of this video and thought it...
When the market is down and you need to sell your house, it is easy to feel pretty 'put out' by the low-ball offers and never ending  buyer requests. Sometimes, by the time you accpet an offer, you feel like you have really compromised. Rather than behaving like you are doing the buyer  big favor...
