I've come to realize that there are a few things that just do not matter and I wish did matter, with as much energy as I put into them.  First, the weather predictions - they are rarely right and yet I look every night.  Second, the economist's predictions of the housing market - I read everythin...

I've been reading a book lately and it went into what your life means.  Think about a tombstone, I know it's a little morbid right off the top, but keep up with me....  The tombstone usually has the year in which one was born and the year of passing.  Between the two numbers, is what is important...

I have to say that I have vaguely recognized that there is a writer’s strike in Hollywood.  I am an avid television viewer and like a wide variety of shows, but with the exception of “The Office”, I’ve just not paid much notice to any change.  If anything, with the re-runs or just plain old lack ...

I've recently had my eyes open that my job as a REALTOR is becoming less about listing and selling homes, and more about counseling my clients to reduce damages. I've been very successful as a listing agent for the past many years, just before the hyper market ramp up and even this past year, but...

I have wanted to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra for years!  My awesome Brother in Law got my wife and I tickets to see the show in Richmond yesterday and it was the single coolest event I’ve ever been to.  It was way cooler than repelling and zip-lining in the canopy of Jamaica or even swimming...

Fredericksburg.cam has reported that the region has a task-force to look into affordable hosing in the region…  I was surprised at the reaction.
