Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.



If you haven't already, please feel free to read Ade For Al.  A simple Lemonade Stand at the local Farmer's Market in Lilburn, GA raised over $2500 for Al Real's family in just one evening.  It makes me VERY proud to be part of this community.  As if the actual injuries little Al suffered weren't...
I'm in the market...  My family is 'thinking' of buying a new home.  And while I spend a lot of time with other buyers, it is a different beast when putting MY money on the line.  It shouldn't be... but it is.  I think it is a fantastic learning opportunity for me.  So, this is a series of posts ...
Many of you might have heard about Al Real.  He is 8 years old, and a student at Arcado Elementary School here in Lilburn.  On June 7th, while playing with a friend, Al received 3rd degree burns over 80% of his body.  He was rushed to Grady's Burn Unit, and from there sent to the Shriner's Hospit...
and a FaceBook Page... and a Twitter Hashtag...

As I was contemplating this series, I had visions of street rods and customs dancing in my head… and I keep having these thoughts about big diesel powered trucks…  RVs, tractor-trailers and delivery trucks… I know why.  I keep thinking about them because they could benefit dramatically from hybr...
Two years ago I wrote a blog post called “Incrementalism“…  It is actually a favorite term among a small group of my friends.  We coined the term in regards to Jeep modifications.  Instead of doing the work over and over, but just a little at a time, causing a tremendous amount of laber of spendi...
Last year I wrote about pricing strategies.  And most people (including real estate agents) assume that pricing is about getting a certain price… but it isn’t so much about the price as it is about marketing to the right people. Image via Wikipedia Of course, it is a little more complicated than ...
Right now there are several areas of North Georgia, including Gwinnett County, that are issuing rebates for 'water saver' toilets. While this might not be terribly exciting, it is pretty cool... especially when combined with a deal at Costco on one of the listed toilets... Image via Wikipedia The...
Image by alandberning via Flickr Sleepers...  Sleepers are cool... and I'm not talking about the big cabs on 'over the road' trucks, I'm talking about cars that don't have an outward appearance of 'speed' but when the pedal hits the metal, they have the juice.
