Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.

It’s New Year’s Eve… It’s late… ok, not that late… But, late enough that I can’t really sit down and write a hard hitting real estate post. I have a few of those banging around in my head like a couple of marbles in a oil drum, but Tonight we party! These are amateur trials riders playing in Cali...
Earlier I ran across a post on the official A/R blog wondering about our predictions for the next year. Well, I had already been in a prognosticating mood, since I was actually grading some of my predictions from earlier this year. I also ran across a post by Jim Crawford looking for specific a...
Is It Time to Buy? Revisited... Back in June I reprinted an article that I actually wrote just over a year ago. I originally wrote it in November 2006, and republished it here and on my blog in June 2007. Here is a link to Is It Time To Buy? Well, if you had taken my advice and purchased, let'...
Of course there is one little hitch… You have to be from outside the United States. I just ran some numbers, and the US Dollar is at it’s lowest level in at least the last five years against both the Euro and the Pound. For the Euro: In January of 2003, the Euro was worth about $1.05. As of Frid...
I started off looking for another nice WRC video... and ended up with this. It is truly amazing to watch this guy seem to defy physics with this truck... I know that the actual weight of the truck is low in the chassis, so it isn't really ready to flip, but visually it looks impossible.
Part of my daily reading ritual includes Seth Godin’s blog. He is often described as a marketing genius. I think that well might be true. But, his blog isn’t just about marketing, but also often touches on greater issues. This one certainly did. Although, he actually wrote it four years ago…...
While researching yesterday’s blog entry, I ran across this little tidbit. Frankly, it p***es me off. I am proud to be a member of the NAR. I think that there is a place for a strong voice both for real estate professionals, and to champion the issues for increasing home ownership for consumer...
I ran across a post on Active Rain that pointed me to an outside article that talks about the need for at least a 20% reduction in home prices in order for families to be able to afford to buy. Well, I love it when there are specific claims and statistics. I can usually verify and refute or suppo...
I just thought I'd pass along something I've been playing with on my blog for a couple of days (which is why you may have seen it appear or disappear on the site). It's called Plugoo. It is a plug-in that let's me chat you a viewer on my blog. It will send a message from my website, as you view ...
I have been quite happy with the change to WordPress. One of the great things is the level of control I can have over the presentation of the site. It is a lot of fun to try to make the site more user friendly, as well as deliver better content and entertainment. So, feel free to wander over and ...
