It is now past the 4th of July and to me that means summer is half over.  It just can't be!  It has not been hot enough, the lake water is too cold to swim in, and we have not cooked often enough on the grill.  It must be part of the aging process, but each year summer goes faster and faster.  Th...
It is on a windy day like today and the wind of the past few days that  I am reminded of the clause in the purchase agreement that talks about damage to a property from the date the purchase agreement is signed until the date of closing  referring to an "act of God" or vandalism.   This clause o...

Today is earth day.  This day was created so many years ago that many people today do not know what it really stands for.  The tree huggers of yesteryear wanted a day in which we took time to think about taking care of our planet.  That is not a novel idea as if you go into the Bible you see man...
It is the buzz right now, but you must go to You Tube and see the video on Susan Boyle the woman from England that stole everyone's heart on the British version of American Idol.  This 47 year old woman walked on the stage and the audience and judges thought she was a joke.  She appeared to have...
