But if you are an animal lover like me, you know they do so much more. Can you put a price on the love that ...

Maybe I need to write more about the emotion instead of logic of buying or selling real estate?I'm guilty. Because I like facts and data in my decision-making process, I...
Been busy this week and spent most of the day yesterday trying to get the yard cut. Which was a greater ordeal than normal since the riding lawnmower decided to break.
