Check out this video courtesy of the LA Times. Presented on behalf of "meaningless Internet spectacles," this is truly an amazing snack display. I think for my part, I'll go a bit smaller for our "Big Game" Party (Did you know you can't use the super word for commercial gain?). Although this has ...
    I got my hair done yesterday. At my age, and with my amount of hair, this is a long process. Base color to hide my roots, highlights to pretend it's sun-streaked, trim, get the idea. I do enjoy it though...the salon I go to is filled with friends of mine. These are women that my ...
This tickled me this morning. Nothing worse than finding that your morning pants listing doesn't fit anymore. Or maybe it never did. :) Clever post, enjoy!I realize the importance of listings. I work hard to attract realistic sellers, however; there is always that one home that makes me wonder......
    It has finally happened...after 24 years. My youngest child left the house under his own power....well, our power, a Toyota Truck. I am no longer responsible for getting ANY child to school. No more carpool! It's been a long time since the morning was completely my own (although I did get up...

I really loved this a relative new-comer. It makes the point that when we can create an environment here where new bloggers can feel confident to participate. Something we can all remember in our rush to comment. Think about how much better our entire Active Rain Community will be if w...
  My son posted a funny comment on Facebook the other day....have to give credit where credit is due.(For all I know, he saw this somewhere else.) He said that when one notices a spelling mistake to check the keys on the keyboard to determine if the mistake was "socially acceptable." The premise...
  Yes.....I've been working in real estate long enough to have lived through some boom and bust. As a result, some of my buyers are underwater today, and along with lenders, we are the face of the industry. But blaming us? I'd rather you didn't. I had a shocking phone call yesterday. I was makin...
  I am just a Realtor®! I don't wear a black cape or carry poison apples. I don't know any (good) spells. My sword skills are sorely lacking. I have never been convicted accused of kidnapping. I'm really not that scary! But I do scare people. I hear from time to time that someone was "afraid" to...
  It's sweet tooth. I've always been the person who likes a little something sweet at the end of a meal. Always, always...even if I was good enough to limit myself to just one piece of See's Candy. Another tradition? My husband and I have a tradition of going for frozen yogurt or ic...
