By late in the evening, I could hardly move.  Saturday, I was bed-ridden for most of the day.  When I was able to pull myself out of bed, walking was horrible, and I had to crawl up and down the steps.  I alternated from subm...

  A few years back I listed a glorious old home in the Soulard area of St. Louis.  This home had originally been a doctors residence when it was built back in the 1880's??.  To say that it was a solid house was an understatement .  Legend had it that a tornado had hit it and bounced off.  The fou...

I'm about to pull my hair out!  As I sit here at my desk working on my web page, answering emails and doing my blogging (all things that I try to get done before my day gets started in earnest) my phone rings and it's my daughter.  It's cold in Columbus and she doesn't feel like going to class.  ...
