We did a blog a short time ago that was a fun blog about long haired music.  A young man who turned out to be Punky Caldwell, quite well know in his day, got noticed and commented on a lot.  His daughter found the blog and sent us additional pictures. It seems Punky died young but was quite a mus...

You learn a lot if you attend a lot of classes about a lot of real estate stuff. One important thing to learn quickly is that it will probably be cold as the dickens in the classroom. Classrooms are designed for banker-type attire like men wear.  You will not be exercising.  Your feet will get co...
