Another week has gone by as we inch closer to the spring market, and there were a lot of posts last week getting ready.  There were also a few that were pure fun.  Here are my favorites:

My Homebuying Nightmare: How I ended up homeless with legal fees  - Brett Coulter:  Brett brings us a true estate nightmare.

Hope Outdoor Gallery of Austin TX - Bob Ratliff:  These photos are just amazing.  

It's Like a Dog Pissing on a Fire Hydrant - Melinda (Mel) Peterson  With this title, it had to make the list.

Sellers, Don't Forget to Consider the Hassle Factor - Susan Haughton: Hassle factor?  What hassle factor?

Positively preposterous - Barry Owen:  Try reading this one out loud and fast!

10 Things That Set Mentally Strong People Apart - Roberta Ross:  Nutritious food for thought.

Seen on real estate websites...- Marte Cliff: Nothing like reading the totally obvious!

4 Types Of Bloggers I Do Not Want To Be Like - George Souto: A good one for newbies and oldies.

The Cars of Havana -  Sheila Anderson:  They just don't make them the way they used to!

And The Winner Is - Michael Jacobs:  This is for tonight!  And you must watch the video.

So that's it for today.  Have a fun week and keep those great posts coming!  See  you nest Sunday, and blog on!

Brett Coulter's story is infuriating.  I hope he follows through with your advice in comments #82 and #83.
