A few months back i had an agent ask if the sellers were mad.  No why, I asked. Well, they didn't take our offer and countered on the high side. Hmmmm, As I had searched the current market value and found our counter was about 5% below market, my seller didn't think they were on the high side. Be...

Love the song. But this is about the flower itself. Actually, 2 flowers. I was at out local Home Depot buying paint.  When checking out I saw this display with Orchids. This picture is very close to the actual size.  It is a bit smaller. I have seen many Orchids in my day, but never anything so b...

I had a conversation with an elderly friend.  Not old just older than I. He told me he just found out that he has stage 4 cancer.  2-3 months tops. We had a long talk and laughed a bit. "Bill, I have some advice for you and I hope you take it to heart." Rejoice with your family in the beautiful l...

You know the old adage...It's not over until the Fat Lady sings." Well...I think she has been on a diet.   She has not been singing much this year although there have been many chances. There also seams to be a habit of waiting until the deal is almost ready to close to bring up problems. I was t...

I love the Daffodil. It's bright shinning head reminds me of sunshine in the morning.  Dark orange ball with bright yellow all around it. The one thing missing this year are the bees that are usually all around the spring flowers.  I think the crazy weather has them all mixed up.

Minnesota is running about 2 weeks behind the average and Mother Nature isn't in any hurry to change that. There have been some rumblings about changing vacation plans and other travel ideas. The truth is that by Memorial Weekend, most everything will be back to near normal.  Kids are not even ou...

This is the first time I can remember the twins having a complete weather postponement. I rememberthe old Met stadium and the rain outs, but never a snow, sleet and rain out. But, the weather didn't stop these wild turkeys from visiting under my bird feeders for a few morsels.

Anyone Else EXCITED??? I see my Hometown Twins have acquired a few pitchers and that should help them out ...

I know that for some people this is the vision they have.  If it move we shoot it.  Now, while that may be true of some people, that is not me.  (Those people are not REAL hunters) I have a soft spot for the wild creatures around us.  Many of you already know that.  So, I am going to introduce yo...

WHY? The time for talking has long passed and waiting will only cost you more money. Home prices are on the way up and in some areas the increase is double digits.   Interest rates in some areas is inching up.  1/4% in my area per one of the local banks. This translates into higher payments.  So,...

This weekend WE spent with the Grand Daughters.  Being close to Halloween and a very nice day we took a Nature walk. One of the local park/nature areas has a mile long trail.  Stationed along the trail are cartoon characters and other Movie characters that kids like.  Any thing from Snow White to...

Why can't the media just print the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Right now the Media spin Doctors are at work trying to put a vision in our minds of who the running mates are.  I don't need the media to tell who is who and what they stand for. I will listen to the debates and ...

Stick and Stay is bound to pay. That was my dad's motto when playing poker so many years ago.  While not always the best strategy, it does have some merit to it. Late Friday, I finally heard back from a Bank on a short sale Purchase Agreement that was sent to them on 4-3-2012.  Yea, we just heard...

WE hear this often..."That was a wedding present from...". What happens next...A buyer comes in and LOVES THAT CHANDELIER! Now, the fight starts.  Buyer won't buy unless the light fixture stays, seller won't sell if the light fixture con't be taken.   Hopefully this all happens before you get to ...

No, not talking business. I have a cousin who is on Twitter all the time.  Part of her name is in Twitter.  She broadcasts her whereabouts all the time. Store, Church, pool basement...you get the idea. Well, she was broadcasting her trip to the west coast.  She was keeping everyone in the world u...

She does the same at the 3rd home but now some of the good was some of the bad in the first hou...

It has been a long hard day in many ways. I dealt with a few people that I think the world would be better off without. But, in that thought I remembered this.. Slinky's.  Yea, that odd spring gadget we played with as kids. Well I found a picture of it and it details my feeling for today. Yup, I ...

What can I say.  Farm boys are not lazy.  Thes creations took a lot of time. See for yourself... As I have said in the first part...I would be spending my time hunting and fishing enjoying what Mother Nature has given us to enjoy.  But, these busy guys aren't in my way while they are so busy.

After a good meal, (For hospital food it was good) we went for a walk in the park.  It was a great day mid to upper 50's and the is warm for Minnesota at the end of November. Walking down to the river to look at the ducks and geese, they thought we had rung the dinner bell. This Canadian Honker w...

I was all caught up by noon today, so I went up to the cabin and did some fall work. Leaves were pilling up and the more I get done in the fall, the less I have to do when I want to fish. The birds and small animals were flittering around eating and working at their winter food supply.   This sit...
