Finding quirky things makes me happy

When showing houses, you never know what quirky things you might find.  I enjoy taking pictures of such quirky things and posting them to a blog, twitter or my facebook page, much like I’m doing now. Sometimes it’s the little things. Like the bear toilet paper holder that might sway you to buy the house. […]

Grandpa had a list of “isms” he’d ponder upon

My grandpa was a wise man. I was always amazed and very proud at all he accomplished as a very successful businessman, but he didn’t have any special advantages growing up. His family was very poor. I remember my mother telling me the story about how he was the only kid in his high school […]

Glass Mosaic Class at Toledo Art Museum

Not to sound cliche’, Toledo has a rockin’,  world-class art museum.  I’ve taken some great classes, meet some new people and expanded my horizons. I always sign up for classes I know nothing about.  Now I can add printmaking and glass cutting to my resume.  I’ve got cuts on my hands to prove it.  Here’s […]

A case where spell check worked!

Having done a *little* time in chaotic newsrooms, I can see how this might happen. How unfortunate.  But I’m sure the fire had it coming. Devastated family members frantically searched the home for any sign the fire might have survived, but authorities believe the extinguishment was complete.  No word yet on what sparked the blaze.

Thanks for supporting me and the MDA over Labor Day!

I recently went to jail for Jerry’s Kids and truly appreciate y’all bailing me out. I raised nearly $1,000. I’m truly blown away by the generosity. Together, we sent at least 1 kid to camp. Thank you for helping make a difference!

This photo makes me want to get a dog

When I get email with about 500 FWs in the subject line, I normally delete. This one managed to slip through the cracks. It makes me warm and fuzzy. Just thought I’d share.

Twitter helped me close a tough real estate deal

I’ve used Twitter since early 2008, back when it was mostly geeks and before it began going mainstream. People on the outside looking in don’t quite understand it, and my trusted advisor and tech guru Ed Hunter has decided, it’s almost impossible to explain to the average person. While the Twitterverse can be overwhelming to […]

Lone flower spotted in backyard-a sign of hope

HOPE, that is-that the furnace can soon be turned off, grass will become green and coats will no longer be necessary. Real estate activity also increases during this time and for many reasons. BTW, I hope this photo isn’t too shameless about promoting the Indiana Hoosiers. It truly was an accident. Truly.

“I’m a PC” guy, John Hodgman spotted at Border’s

He’s a minor TV celebrity, you know.  Apple CEO Steve Jobs made him famous overnight with the “I’m a Mac” TV spots […]

Peanut Butter Pie: First Attempt.

I have Aunt Kay’s recipe and she would never lead me astray.  I followed all the directions up to the part where it says, refrigerate.  That’s when I decided it was time for a taste test.  Not bad.  It seems to have satisfied the craving.  Lookit me!  Cookin’ and stuff.  I had a slice of […]

a weakness….

Whenever I go into a garden shop, say to buy ONE thing—like mulch for example…  I wind up with a car full of posies.  I can’t help it that the flowers JUMP INTO my cart and my credit card swipes itself RIGHT OUT OF MY WALLET.
