Anything and everything about real estate, life, revitalizing and redeveloping Cleveland and what's on my mind and your mind!
Today I stopped at E. 71st and Harvard to buy gas. I could not pass it up, Gas USA was selling it for $2.54/gallon (and who would have ever thought that would be a bargain). While there, I snapped a photo of the diner at the corner. My Aunt Ann used to hold court there, serving the hungry factory...
Jim Rokakis has been our Treasurer for quite some time. I had no idea how eloquently he could write a story. The Washington Post's Outlook section featured an article he wrote today. The article is about everyone wanting the American Dream, not having enough money to get it, and then being given ...
Approximately 600,000 ARMS are set to well, reset next month. This prompts a coalition of groups to call for a moratorium on ARMS.  A two year moratorium. WKYC's website has an article about it here. Cleveland's Slavic Village and Union-Miles neighborhoods are in the unfortunate position to be nu...
Many of us read Inman on line. They just started a three part series highlighting stories from actual homeowners who are upside down and facing foreclosures. The first part was very insightful, covering several different homeowners: one who lives in her property and finds herself upside down beca...
Reading Lenn Harley's amazingly 'on point' post today got me thinking about something that keeps churning in my brain. If prices on homes should be $300,000, how in blazes did they get to $500k and $600k in the time it takes to eat a cookie? I'm really serious about this.What do they tell you abo...

I'm gleeful, yet sad that I had to find out about it after the fact.  I don't know if this was the first time this event was held in Cleveland, but The Sun News and Ken Pr...
Something tells me those of you who love to blog also love to read. I bet some of you are  pretty darn good writers too, even BTB (Before The Blogosphere).  I am starting a meme, which surprises me probably more than it surprises you. I thought it would be a good way to get to know each other, an...
This is why The Ohio Hub and the 3C Corridor Plan is such a great idea for Cleveland and Ohio in general. Watch this video and see what the Downeaster Railroad Line has done for people in the Maine to Boston corridor. No really, please watch it!I also have a link here to the May 2007 financial re...
No offense to Florida, really. It's a great State! But Clevelanders are 'sticky.' It's one of those high tech terms for those who own a website; we want our websites to  be sticky meaning people visit our sites and then browse for more than a few seconds. Well, that's how I view the Midwest, at l...
