    Extra Extra, Read all about it,...   well at least watch the video ha? Yet Another Fantastic Time Saving Tool!   Anyone Wanting to Hang a Picture Fast and Easy?  Once again, the discussion group I am involved in Linked In got me thinking.  So, after just a little searching I found this video on YouTube.  Well, I couldn't keep it to myself of course, so if you want to see the simplest way there is to hang a picture.  Bare with the beginning of this video and watch it all the way through.  I made my own tool out of a large paint stick and a screw.  Since I have plenty of paint sticks and a lot of "loose screws" around, it was free and easy!    So,... watch and learn!

    It is Thursday, No that doesn't mean the week is almost over!    No WAY!  It means we have two full days to kick some serious butt yet!  So, on that note here is a couple of items to get you going!      First off, lets stimulate the mind;  Did you know it is physically impossible to write out this sentence?    There are three two's too's to's in the English language.  Think about it!          Secondly, let's get the respitory and circulatory systems going!  Pick up a funnel and a ping pong ball.  Put the funnel in your mouth, aim it strait up toward the ceiling and try to hit the ceiling with the ping pong ball.  If you can do it, I will tell you the name of the scientific law that,..... nayh!  You are not getting the results from me that easily!    Good luck with these and kick som...

Okay, I have to be honest with all of you.  Every once in a while, even Little Miss Mary Sunshine here gets into a pissy-ass mood!  For some reason,... well it was a good reason,... (or was it?) that is how I felt yesterday.   So a good night's sleep and all was well?  Nope!  Not in the least!  Not even after my morning dose of Active Rain (no offense guys and gals).  Not even after my morning coffee.  Then I go to get on my walking shoes, left them in my van!  Phone is not charged!  Uggrrrhhhhh!  This morning is simply following along with how I felt last night. Then it happened!  I opened the door to the world and what did I walk into?  The most beautiful snow~globe you can imagine!  Now, I could have been even more pissy and stayed indoors and pouted because it was so wet outside I c...

Where do you get when puddle jumping?    Forget the umbrella when you are playing in Active Rain!  Okay, so I'm running around in the rain this morning letting the wash of fresh information soak into my brain and my heart when I jump into one of my favorite puddles, Craig Daniels post;        Getting to 100 - Fun Request - Will You Help? This is such a cute clever post that I just wanted to share it with the folks that like to take refuge under my umbrella on a regular basis.  Now, who am I to question Craig Daniels and his vast base of wisdom?  So, I did what he said and jumped over to this post How To Get 100 Comments On Your Blog Post - Just Monkeying Around on Wordless Wednesday to help this adorable drop of rain out with her wish.  Now, I'm no fairy godmother, but if I can full-fil...

Home Improvements Before Listing? Laura S. Baker Ready? Set,...Sell!  Home Stging & ReDesign, Dane/Jefferson/Waukesha Counties WI   As a professional home stager, I have been asked time and time again, well shouldn't I completely gut this or that before I sell my house?  The answer is not as simple as yes or no.  Each and every house bares it's own set of challenges.  It's own unique positives and negatives.  Some things can be fixed with a little Spackle and paint.  Somethings get a little more in depth.  Let me give you an example of a bathroom that the owners thought they would have to completely gut and why I stopped them dead in their tracks suggested they did not.                         Yes, these two pics are the before and after photo's of the same bathroom.  Clearly the photo ...

Pick three Seriously?  How the H-E-Double toothpick can I do that? Are you kidding me Craig Daniels?  Do you really think I can get it down to three, four with a tie?  You know what incredible people are here in the rain.  You know people see you struggle and simply pick up the phone to lend a hand, help you understand, give you support, teach you when you need techie help and simply are just there for you!  Well, since I can only have three (four with a tie) here goes; ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First and foremost I have to give a shout out to my favorite Jersey Girl;   If you haven't already met Kristine Ginsberg you are greatly missing out on one of the most beautiful people you will ever meet.  Anytime I use the phrase "beautiful person" I am...

News flash, News Flash, There's a maniac driving the wrong way down the Schuylkill Expressway! A man is driving down the Schuylkill Expressway (pronounced "Sure-kill", but that's its own joke)  A man is driving down the Schuylkill Expressway, and traffic is worse than ever. People honking, flashing their lights at him, the works. He turns on KYW news radio for a traffic report. The radio blares, "NEWS FLASH! NEWS FLASH! There's a maniac driving the wrong way down the Schuylkill Expressway!" The man looks around and exclaims, "My God, there's a lot of them!" I was looking for a certain "southern bell" joke and happened upon this joke.  It reminded meof something I just read in Bob Stewerts post, Why Your Blog Will Fail in 2011  In his paragraph "You don't understand how to write efficie...

UNDERSTANDING REAL ESTATE TERMINOLOGY                Purchasing a home can be a complicated and confusing process, especially for first-time buyers.  Throughout the process, first-time home buyers will encounter a variety of unfamiliar real state terms. There are several key terms associates with purchasing real estate that are helpful to learn.               For example, many buyers confuse the terms broker and salesperson.  A broker is a properly licensed individual, or corporation, who serves as a special agent in the purchase and sale of real estate, a salesperson is an individual employed or associated by written agreement by the broker as an independent contractor.  The salesperson facilitates the purchase or sale of real estate.               Once you decide to purchase, a salesp...
