Debe Maxwell has challenged the Active Rain community to explain what home-ownership looks like to us. What a great question. For those of us who work with homes everyday, it could be easy to loose sight of what home-ownership actually means. We probably take it for granted because it's a common ...
Now I know why the deceased looks so peaceful at the viewing. Yep, I've finally had an aha moment of clarity. You see, when you're married, you share your bed. That isn't so bad, but when kids are involved, you share less of your bed. It just seems compassionate to let that little one climb in on...
The clients I am currently working with are scrambling to buy a house before leaving the country for a year. Their time-line is tight and they are trying to see everything that comes close to their list of desired needs, wants and options lists. They have found a few homes that were recently remo...
OK, I admit it, I love to mess with people. It's always in fun, but life is too serious. People need to laugh and I like bringing that laughter to them. I had my annual Dr.'s check up this past week. When I needed to call for my appointment, I looked up the office online. When I found the page, i...

I've been traveling for the past two weeks, and it has been great. The first week was all meetings in Georgia, but week two has been a week at the beach with a four year old. Stressful? Not really. Entertaining, constantly. Watching her experience so many "firsts" has been priceless.My office sta...
My laptop computer was down for 9 days, and I survived. It was ugly. Actually, it was lovely. I did have business to conduct throughout that time, but through the magic of cellphones and tablet computers, I was able to continue on as if nothing happened. It was more difficult on those tools, but ...
The past few years have been full of travel for me. Most of it has been for work or meeting other obligations, or occupying the first wife while she works. Regardless, it has been fun and I found it is a good way to catch up with some of those regular Rainers I've communicated with throughout the...
I am the worst at surprises. Like my wife, I tend to like planned spontaneity, but life doesn't always cooperate. Sometimes, it just surprises you, and you just have to roll with it. When you do, some amazing things can happen.I've been on a trip for the past two weeks. The day before I left, my ...
