I love middle eastern food.  I have never met a dish I am unwilling to try.  Here in Boise we have lots of  Iraqi restaurants!  My first one I went to was Ishtar,  They have really good food for  relatively inexpensive prices.  They also have a complete small store and fresh made Pita and flat br...
As a Realtor and property manager I have maintenance.  This allows me to become familiar with good contractors.  I do not know if I hire the best but if I do not like them I do not hire them again.   This seems to be a year of roofs.  Not a happy topic.    My client found a good roofer who was wi...

Her hospital bill is over $84K and I am sure that doesn't include the doctor bills. She has applied for medicaid. Usually they will le...
In September a friend of mine asked me to look at her land.  She had 2.83 acres of land behind her house.  Now I haven't listed land but I am (or at least was (I think there was a time limit on the certification)) in land.  I knew basically what needed to be done.  So on a beautiful Sunday I drov...

Okay so I have made two posts that were really good and failed to publish today.  I had two more quick ones that failed.  I am not destined to blog today.
