Burlington County, NJ Our local housing market has followed the expected downward trend this year.  Early predictions of recovery this year appear to be incorrect.  Many experts agree that the market has reached or is near the bottom.  However, there is no agreement when conditions will approve. ...
I have long contended that 90% of home buying decisions are made by women.  That woman is usually the wife, girlfriend, mother or mother-in-law or gal pal.  We guys try to act as if we are the rulers of our domain, but we all know the truth :).  While women are looking closely at the kitchen and ...
Allow Me To Digress for a moment. It recently came to my attention that in some states convicted felons are not allowed to vote.  Voting is a civil right and you forfeit certain rights, temporarily anyway, when convicted of a serious crime.  Some state disenfranchise convicted felons.  This means...
  Readers of my blog know that I absolutely LOVE food.  My time with the military and the Department of Defense allowed me a chance to travel extensively throughout the US and abroad.  Usually one of the first things I will do is make contact with a local and ask them what and where they eat.  A...

WHOA The other day I looked at my points and saw that I had cruised past 20,000 points.  I for one did not know how I would reach 20,000 points.  What would I blog about?  How would  I get points?  Will I be accepted on this new medium called active rain?
