Last Week's Favorites: May 27th - June 3rd

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

This week's list has a combination of fun and serious.  It's been that kind of week.  So here goes:

Barbara Jo Berberi:  How Do Wooden Birds Multiply?  I thought I would start off with the fun stuff, coming from a very fun blog buddy.

Vicky Chrisner: Hidden Costs in Home Buying - New vs. Resale  Here are some things to think about if you've always felt new was better.

Susan Neal: When I say "electric company" in Sacramento County, do you think "fun"?  Oh, speaking of fun?

Richard Weisser: Does technology free us or hold us prisoner?  This is a question a lot of us ask as we back for the beach.

Dorie Dillard: Why should I buy a home now? FAQ #1 Austin, TX  This is one of many great posts for AR's latest challenge.

Richard and Beth Witt: Income comes from hard work and struggling against difficult odds  Some serious wisdom.

Jay Marchanich:  ONE MUST Understand Paint Before One Paints!  This provided one of this week's "AHA" moments for me.

Gary Woltal: Friday Funnies ~ Dog Lyrics  Gary was channeling Willie the Labradoodle when he came up with this one!

John Mayer: Wordless Wednesday: Lizard Love  I couldn't take my eyes off of this one - about as close as we get to X-Rated on Active Rain.

Karen Fiddler: Back From Vacation....Pictures From The Trip  I just took a vicarious vacation!  Thank you, Karen!

So that's all on this sunny Sunday morning.  Time to run out and sell a house!  Have a great week, and I'll be back next Sunday.
