So you're wondering about tomorrow.  Will our computers get sick??  Will the Internet shut down?  What about our files?  Oh my, oh my. I've figured out a very simple solution, and it might be worth your time.  With the very important documents that you'd like to save, obviously use an USB back up...

People making a difference . . . read this: Dr. Shumake is setting a GOOD EXAMPLE of volunteerism and entrepreneurship.  I call it "Social Capitalism."   I am a "Social Capitalist" . . . a term I coined years ago.  This is an example of what it truly means.  Thanks Robert!!  You make a differenc...

"The Shot Heard Round the World" blasted out on April 19th, 1775 and it was the start of our Nation's Revolutionary War.  Yup, that lovely little ditty that had US vs. the Red Coats. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shot_heard_around_the_world Since then, we've kissed and made up. But, did anyone els...

I call it "LEECHING" . . . but, hey . . . that's just me! Real Estate Blogging, Web 2.0 and the REALTOR® Code of Ethics. By Lisa C. Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!" This post is probably preaching to the choir for most of our Active Rain members, and for that I am glad. I believe that 99.9% of the memb...

Pet peeve #1:   Typos.  Especially in the day-and-age of SPELL CHECKERS!  (ABC with a checkmark).  I'm not above them, and when I've re-read one of my blogs, or comments and find I've made a typo, it's annoying.  When I read posts of other AR bloggers and come across a typo it's annoying. When I ...

Has anyone heard this news:  Home sellers will be required to use their right thumbprint to sign off on the final documents when they close on their home, effective June 1, 1984 2009. Cook County is in Illinois, and I'm wondering about the who, what, where, when and why (and how). Who: Someone (t...

It's Getting TOO Easy to Post LISTINGS (EVERYWHERE!) With the changes that seem to be taken place with the Realtor(r) listing services, multiple listing services, private posting Interest servcies, etc., and so on . . . the trouble isn't found in the ease.  Just like baking a Pillsbury(r) cake.  ...

From time-to-time I comment on another blogger's post, and then I think; mmmmm, that's really a good comment, Carla.  Maybe you should post your blog, and cash in on some points. But, I'm a little lazy of late, and would rather read other bloggers blogs, comment, and call it a day. Today, however...

Be picky, but don't be unrealistic. There is no perfect home.  Ask Bill Gates, even he'll tell you he's got some little bug-a-boo that is annoying ('course he's got the money to fix it . . . ) Do your homework before you start looking. Decide specifically what features you want in a homeand whic...
