I'm still in my first year as a realtor so I have a lot to learn. One thing I have noticed, though, is that signs are not cheap, and most of them aren't durable either.

I get warnings about Internet threats on a regular basis and I'm sure you do as well. Some are genuine, but many of them are sent by well-intentioned family and freinds who are trying to protect me who have been drawn into forwarding and promoting a hoax.  So how do you sort out which threat mess...

I have lived through a very interesting period of time. When I was youngster I used to save a carrot for the milkman's horse, and rush out to give him a treat as the milkman delivered to our house. Now, my Blackberry alerts me anytime one of my email accounts receives a new message. My personal l...
