In an effort to stimulate our economy and to get more housing starts, the Federal Housing Administration is following through with its pledge to increase the upfront AND annual mortgage insurance premiums....HOW THRILLING FOR US WHO WORK IN REAL ESTATE!!!! Unveiled late Monday, the increases are ...
So I was thinking about a great tune to broadcast tonight and it hit me. I was on the way to the daddy daughter dance tonight with my 9 year old daughter, Claire. I turn on the radio to crank the mood, and wallah.....on comes this song. What a novel idea with the rappers, RUN DMC Breakin It Down ...
So......I was thinking about subscriptions.  I'm blessed.  I have a lot of them, but not as many as a lot of other folks, but I'm please.  I was looking at some superstars and I see that Jason Crouch has 1,900+ subscribers.  Todd Clark has well over 800 subscribers.  Lenn Harley has over 1,500.  ...
OK....freakin me out a bit.  Just logged on to Active Rain and it popped up almost as fast as a Google Search.  I had just posted my comment on Missy's featured post (does she even need a last name?).  As soon as I hit click I was back at the top of the page.  I had to scroll down to the bottom t...
Great summer retro shot.....My Oldest Boy, Brett, was on Grandpa's boat this summer.  We went to Door County and had a blast!  It was so much fun.  Here he "parked the boat" (can you do that?) in the middle of Lake Michigan and turned off the engine and let all the kids bail!  Brett had a blast. ...
So...I'm sitting behind a desk this very moment feeling very FAT!  Of course, I'll feel much better in a couple of hours when I go for my workout and my 5 mile run, but as of this moment, I'm thinking that Fat Tuesday should be a bit low key. In any event, for us, we're grilling.  It's snowing ri...
So...I've been very remiss at posting on Active Rain for the last 3 weeks.  There are two primary reasons.  First, we've been growing by leaps and bounds, and I'm adhering to the use of "On Time."  As a result, I'm hiring a second assistant and I really grow and try to gain some serious market sh...
Earlier I wrote a post about best eats in Chicago....below is my info from that first post:Hey what are some of the bests in Chicago?  I want to hear your favorites.  Here are a few of mine:1)  Superdawg - this is listed as one of the best hot dog places in the world.  In fact, it is listed in th...
I've always cherished getting a featured post, but it's never been a driving force for me. When I got one, though, I'd enjoy that gold star.  Nice feeling, but again....it's never been the what makes me write.  As of today, February, 16th, 2012, I just recevied my 98th referral since joining the ...
I just posted a blog over the weekend titled...YOUR Gut Will Move YOUR BUTT!.  In that post I referenced the concept of "On Time".  Since that post a number of people commented, but I was surprised to have a number of people reach out to me to discuss how I, in particular, use On Time.  So...with...

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
