If you are coming to North Dakota to live you may be asking yourself, should I bring my motorcycle? Having the privilage of working with many fine personnel from The Minot Air Force Base as well as Texans streaming in to work in the oil fields, I find there are a lot of misconceptions about our c...
Oak Park Realty, Minot North Dakota's First and Only Green Realtor. Why: You know how you get set in your ways but then all of a sudden the light bulb comes on and you have a totally different view of something. Well this is what happened to me.

Here is a little story for you about Blog Envy. This week I received an anonymous email thanking me for my blogging because it has brought him/her soooo much business. The email encouraged me to keep on blogging because people of one particular political party will never do business with me and t...
If you are moving to North Dakota it's only fair to warn you about our traffic. Of course we are a rural state so I'm not posting this to warn you about big traffic jams with long lines at a standstill on the interstate.

The big old gas pig let me down on Monday. It was quite a sight to see, for my top client and myself. We had a good laugh over it but now I'm driving Mom's car with the license plates TNTSMOM. Both my kids have the initials TNT thus the plates TNTSMOM. I thought they were really cute but I never ...
While posting for points is not the purpose of Active Rain lets face it, most of us would not post at all if it were not for the incentive of points. Personally I wish we received points for answering questions as I used to but time has not allowed me to lately. I believe that if Active Rain remo...
