The halls aren't quite decked, but the tree is up and all decorated.  This is the first year that either Willie the Labradoodle or Millie the cat haven't done any damage at all.  For his first few years, the dog tried to chew the cord for the lights.  He must have gotten some sort of shock becaus...

And I've noticed that I usually have two numbers to work with.  There is the lender's number, then there is the other one.  The buyer's number.Most of the buyers I've encountered want to spend a lot less for ...
 Yesterday the Washington, DC area  had our first wintry weather.  Throughout the morning there was a layer of ice all over everything.  And when the sun came out, it lit up everything.  This is a leafless tree in my front yard that looks a lot better wearing a coat of ice.  
This was another week of some inspired posts here on ActiveRAin, and I'm guessing that I missed s many as I found!  So here are my favorites:Referral Karma, Baby! Debe Maxwell:  Nothing good comes from being greedy about trying to collect an undeserved referral fee!Year End Questions To Contempla...
