It has been one brutal summer hasn't it?  I have 5 kids, 3 of which are boys.  We did a football camp when it was over 100 degrees and I felt that they needed to have a cool head.  Seriously...with that heat, we need to have a cool head.  But the boys still couldn't resist a bit of fashion this s...
This was shared with me by a fellow co-worker. It really is educational as to what our government was set up to be by the founding fathers. I hate watching a 10 minute video, but I will tell you that this one really is worth it. In the end, it scares me the path that our country and government is...
Tired of working so hard at your current company and beating your head against a wall?  My thoughts are that we work too hard in this business to not get our deals closed and to not get paid.  I work really hard, but I close my deals and get paid.  I get paid well for what I do. Our culture is su...
It's been a great summer!  I had a great friend of mine give my kids some nice patriotic wear!  This was such a fun summer.  So...we had to take a picture to capture the moment.  Even in our brutal heat....my kids had to throw the big sweaty hats on.  It's been a lot of fun, but here's one event ...
I was in Denver this week, listening to some radio station when the DJ tells the story about a guy by the name of George Dennehy. He was born with no arms. His story, from what I hear, is that he applied for a major college music scholarship. I saw this video and it's absolutely incredible. In an...
Everyone is a snob about something.  Me????  It's not Pizza, but I will say that I LOVE Pizza so much that I can tell you when the Pizza is extraordinary, just OK, or sometimes it just downright sucks. Now comes Fio's Pizza in Saint Charles.  It's loacated in Wasco, Illinois, just a few miles wes...
Over the last 2 weeks, I have received 7 calls from Active Rain for a mortgage.  That includes purchases and refinances.  I'm blown away and, quite frankly, it's quite amazing.  In any event....I got to thinking that it really stuns me for one reason in particular. I have been very inconsistent i...
So I'm sitting here thinking about a great Friday Night Tune. Can you say that it's great to have a Friday Night? I love it! In any event, I'm sitting here listening to some classics. The best of the best! Here's an all time Rock and Roll Favorite. Rock of Ages by Def Leppard
So the CFPB or the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau hereinafter know as the CFPB or a renegade authority that is accountable to absolutely no one....has created an 1,100 page rule to deal with Good Faith Estimates and the Truth in Lending statements.  I feel like just ending this blog post he...
So I can't tell you how awesome it was to be in Door County over the 4th of July.  We had a blast and we threw the best fireworks display in Door County this year.  13 years and counting.  With our firework's permit we had over $8,000 worth of fireworks and 300 people in attendance.  3 Yachts wat...

 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
