I am not good at road trips. After about three or four hours in the car, I get very antsy and start singing along with the radio in a very energetic way. That's how I get rid of some of the excess energy of sitting in the car, but quite frankly, by that point I'd rather get out and jog alongside ...
This morning I am working in my office, doing "up" or "op" or "floor" time (depending on what it's called in your local real estate office).  This is supposed to be the time when an agent is available to take care of buyers or sellers or renters who might call or drop by the office. Unfortunately...

I wrote this on my Facebook wall this morning:  "I wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all those who cannot share the day with family - those deployed service men and women who are sitting in camps far away from home; those who have no family to be with; those who are to ill or sad or otherwise unable ...

I'm still determined to do my 30 posts in November, one each day.  This is post #23 and as seems to be normal, by the end of the week I can't put together enough words to talk about any one thing.  So here's a bunch-o-stuff.   Tip for today:  Always check out your new smoker well before you want ...
I wrote about this previously, but after reading a post this morning about overcoming fear, I thought it was a great time to revisit the topic.  There is someone in my family who recently needed to change the direction of his life because debilitating fear got in his way. There was also a point i...
Some folks have suggested that people who door knock are needy beggars.  They must be if they're walking the streets and banging on doors.  And they are incredibly annoying.  Maybe even a bit slimy. Because of those negative connotations, as well as potential safety issues, I've stayed away from ...
