  Our family has had a tradition of watching the movie "Young Frankenstein" on Halloween night ever since the movie first came out in 1974. This is a Mel Brooks movie that stars Gene Wilder.  Check out some of this supporting cast: Terri Garr, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, Peter Boyle (as Frank...
 So tomorrow evening the President is going to lay out his game plan to create jobs.  I would like to think that his idea(s) will stimulate our sagging economy, but I don't feel confident about that.  Every business has some vested interest in what he will say and/or do, but it's hard to appease ...
I work the rural parts of Pierce County, WA.  That's where most of my listings are located.  I feel comfortable around the farms and fields. I have a couple of listings in the town of Mineral, which is a very picturesque place just outside of Mt. Rainier National Park. The little church in Minera...
A follow up to last nights post. If you have a car payment, as so many of us do, this may be the perfect time to buy a new car and save money doing it.

First , it's something that most offices don't do.  It shows the seller that your office is involved. I...
My wife's mom is not doing very well. At 82 she is on life support and not expected to recover. My wife and her sisters have a "do not resuscitate" thing going on. It's one thing to lose my mother-in-law. But now I have to accept the fact that I'm the oldest in the clan. I'm not comfortable with ...
As I was going to work yesterday, I saw a sign in front of one of our local "establishments".  At first, I couldn't believe what I saw. This morning as I drove by the sign again, I confirmed that what I "thought" I saw was indeed there for all to see. I had to stop and took this picture.
