I didn't get a chance to watch President Bush's speech today on his and Secretary Paulson's plan to "freeze" the rate on sub-prime mortgages that are getting ready to reset.  I did however check the treasury's web site, Bloomberg.com and CNBC.com to see if I could actually read what they have in ...
We're still in the holiday season, so while I missed the Thanksgiving Holiday at least we're still in the season and I would like to express my gratitude to some of the companies and people who have helped me to restructure my business, as well as to keep my business going during this restructuri...
I'll fess up, when I started blogging I didn't do it in order to express myself to the world.  I did it more as an SEO tool.  I was really surprised when fellow activerainers started paying attention to what I had to say and I've really gotten a kick out of the sense of community, as well as an o...
Have you ever made one of those comments that just kept going and going and going....you know, kind of like that Energizer Bunny.  Well, yesterday I wrote a blog called "I'm From The Government"   and a gentleman by the name of John MacArthur  commented on it.  John has commented a few times on m...

In my writings here on AR and elsewhere I tend to rely on economic analysis quite a bit.  And while I understand why some people's eyes will glass over when I start talking about supply curves and equilibrium points and such, I do feel that looking at our businesses, our industry and the economy ...
As is sometimes the case here on AR, I'll read a posting and it will inspire me to write a post of my own on that or on a related topic.  This is the case here.  I just read a post about being careful with what you say to your buyers regarding real estate as an investment.  It's not that I disagr...
As many of you know, back in September I bought a fix er upper home and ended up moving into it before it was done.  I also experienced the loss of my mother after an extended illness.  One of the casualties of being so busy was that my elliptical machine and dumb bells pretty much forgot who I w...
This is a continuation of my post, Why Housing Is Too Important To Do Nothing II.  Please click on the link to read it first, if you haven't already done so. So, as you would if your doctor told you that you have an infection in your heart, we as a country have a choice to make.  We can treat it ...
