I showed homes this weekend to a long time client of mine. Great guy and wonderful family. We usually have him, his wife, and 3 kids when we view homes. This weekend was a bit different.At the first home, all was normal, just the 6 of us. As we were leaving, daughter, her husband and small child ...
Blinking, strobing, colorful lights. Not out on the street or in some club somewhere. No, I like the colorful lights on electronic equipment. You know the ones. When you turn on the power to your TV you are greeted by a red or blue light, beckoning you in to the electronic bliss it offers.I was l...

I am wearing some readers today for close work, like typing on the computer. I can see fine beyond 6 feet without glasses. Social distancing should be easi...
I used to love to watch the old TV series, The Twilight Zone. The guy with the cool, deep voice would introduce the show each week and I would be all ears. They had the weirdest ideas for episodes. I think I lived through one today.Although I don't remember hearing Rod Serling voicing my episode ...
My daughter closed on her first home this past Friday morning. She was excited to get back over to her new home and start working on cleaning, painting and other work the home needed. She was walking around the house from the back and came upon a woman in the front yard, digging up several rose b...
