Here are 10 posts that taught me something or made me smile - usually both!  

How will I pay my buyer agent, I've barely enough for a down payment? - Nick Vandekar  This is a good read during this time when so many of us are putting together new scripts for buyer clients on this very subject!

STAY AWAY - Peter Mohylsky -If only walls could talk! Well, as Peter points out they often do. But what they say to buyers may not be the sort of message that the sellers think they are sending! And today's buyers are often imagination impaired.

Creekline Trails in Opelika, AL!!! - Laura Sellers This is one of those posts where the writer made her home market sound like a very neighborly place to live, with residents working together to their community fun.

Do You Have "Realtor Ears"? - Michael Elliot This one made me laugh! Been there, done that! And once I had a dinner date interrupt the conversation on my behalf, which was a little embarrassing. This one will make you smile!

Happy Birthday to the Ford Mustang - 60 Years Old Today - Looking Good! - Lise Howe Ah, the Ford Mustang. Once a guy dumped me when he met another woman who drove one of these. Now they're divorced. Great car!

Blooms A Poppin in Prospect, CT 2 - Ed Silva  This is the second in a series where Ed has shown off his ever-blooming home garden. And this spring, he makes me so aware that my front yard is the shabbiest on my block!

What If I (or Someone Else) Already Wrote About It? - Kathy Streib This is for those times you just can't figure out what to write about, and even I get those. It's a great remedy for both writer's block and thinker's block!

Unveiling a Gem: History and Adventure in Madison, NC - John Turner-McClelland John has been writing some of the best local posts I've seen on ActiveRain. Be careful, though. They make you want to relocate!

Wordless Wednesdays: Citrus Tree pruning in the back yard - Endre Barath, Jr. After checking this one out, I peeled and ate a Whole Foods organic orange, and it couldn't begin to match what Endre's tasted like.

How to take Professional Quality Photos of Your Home - Lew Corcoran  Great post, but I think the real answer is to call Lew and have him take real professional photos if whatever you are selling. There is no real substitute!

So, that all for this week. And all week, I'll be out there looking for more great stuff to include in next week's post. So blog on!
