Sometimes it just takes a little extra help from your friends for that extra PUSH to help accomplish something worthwhile in life. Here I am with a PUSH at the Leaning Man sculpture at the University of Arizona. (Photo: Jeff Masich)Well, a PUSH is sometimes needed in real estate also. A Buyer and Seller can be so close but so far at times.

Those days are long gone and it seems that any indiscretion that I have costs me dearly in the belly area, haha. Growing up I didn't like vegetables at all so it has been a tough road to overcome that but I can proudly say that I am much more open to eating healthier ...

Recently we had a prospective client looking for their first home and one of their primary concerns was climate change, and included their impressions of this in their decision-making process. This struck an accord with me so I have provided some additional information for thought.Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) was the first to predict climate change. Since 1960, modern doomsayers have been predicting environmental disasters. None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today (November 20, 2022) have come true.  These predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited.In the last 50 years, the so-called experts are 0 of 41 with their predictions on Ecopocalypt...
