Independence Day on July 4th is always a very good day for me. 20 years ago I chose to come and live in this great country and I am honored now to be an American Citizen. There is no place on earth like it. I never take my freedom for granted and I appreciate all the hospitality this county has given me. My son is a first generation patriot and already waves the flag proudly. (Although it is by his side in this picture)

This is just a trial run to see if I can sucessfully embed my video into my post! What it shows is a native Catonsville chap doing what many other Catonsville folk do this time of year- strip their decks and patios and put them on the main High Street (Frederick Road) for a week. It's a Catonsville thing- Quirky and crazy. All in preparation for the big 4th of July Parade Obviously I got busted on this one! It's raw, and I am learning. I probably should have turned Thomas the Tank Engine down for a short time, but the inevitable protestation that would have occured from the back seat would have been more disturbing. He was doing this for his friends- he is going down the "Oshun Hon", it's a merlin thing!

I first met Barry when he was working at First Equity Mortgage in Catonsville in 1998. We did some business together and became friends, sometimes meeting with our wives for dinner or a movie. I am looking forward to moving to the retail side of the business and working with Barry at PRMI. Funny enough, Barry's office is in the same building where we first met ten years ago.

While shopping at a local children's consignment shop Just Arrived 618 Edmondson Ave, Catonsville, MD 21228 ph. 410-747-8080, I found that they were going to be closing their doors.  It is always sad when a locally owned and operated business closes.  Hopefully the landlord will be able to get another quality business in that location.  The owner, Kelly Whorton, had offers to buy her out, but the landlord chose not to accept the offers.  I bought my 2 year old a few items that I will have to store, but I couldn't pass up the great deal on beautiful items.  All the best Kelly!If you are looking for a great place to pick up gently used, and sometimes clothes that are new with tags, stop by Kelly Whorton's shop.  Everything is 50% off.

Real Estate a few years ago was the best market for Sellers when it was time to sell. You would place a home on the market, and within sometimes an hour sellers would have one or more offers on their property. "NOT ANY MORE". In todays market sellers are taking a beating from buyers. The foreclosure rates are at a all time high and if you begin to get behind on your mortgage payments, you can't wait till the last minute.

I was in an housing forum the other day and I was surprised at what I was reading.  Realtors were blamed for the rise of foreclosures.  Although it seemed to be one person leading this mutiny, their were others who agreed.  Being a full-time Realtor for over 8 years, I do not remember having the capability of approving a mortgage nor can I loan money.  I also have never had the capability of submitting appraisals or doing inspections.  Nor can I make a decision for a family on what they can or can not afford. So in other words the financial decisions are not controlled by the Realtors.  Each person has a job to do, even the Buyers and the Sellers.  This forum also indicated that many Realtors were trying to fool people into thinking that buying is better than renting.  No one can fool s...

 As you drive on Ingleside Ave going south from Route 40 towards Catonsville Town Center you will pass the white house with lights in the windows. You won't miss it.
