Getting an answer on a short sale can be a very long and drawn out process.   I submitted an offer on Thursday, three weeks ago.  The agent told me that evening that he received it and he would get it to the bank the next day.  Monday I called and he had forgotten to send it in and said he would ...

I visited my parents' house briefly the other day.  I took a few minutes and played for a while with their new kitten "Dr. Watson".  I started to wonder about the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, probably one of my dads' favorites it seems.  The first Holmes story was published on March 16th, 1897.  It...

How long have escalators been around?  There had to be a very first one somewhere.  The patent for the escalator was granted March 15th, 1982 and the first working one was put into service in New York City not long after that.  Jesse W. Reno was the inventor that was awarded the patent.  I'm glad...

For any of you out there that like to purchase raw land, this is for you.  I wish I could by a piece of land this big for $6000.  This is just unbelievable!  This would be one great investment. We have all heard about the good deals for land purchases made in our countries relatively short histor...

March 13th, 1991 Exxon paid $1,000,000,000 in fines and cleanup cost for the oil spill caused by the grounded super tanker in Alaska.  As far as I can determine, it remains the biggest such pay out by any company found responsible for a particular environmental event.  Luckily for us all, there h...

If you think the snow storms we had recently were bad, read this.  Richmond would be shut down for two weeks. March 11, 1888 was the beginning day of a 3 day blizzard that paralyzed much of the northeast.  Some locations in Connecticut and Massachusetts received as much as 50" of snow, while New ...

March 10, 1849 was not a great debate day for Abraham Lincoln.  It was not a day of a brilliant oratory neither in favor of nor in opposition against anything.  It was not even a quiet day of reflection about lofty goals and dreams.  It was the day he applied for, and later received a patent for ...

"If you don't care, keep it to yourself!"   Let's all be courteous of one another.  I have ended the title of a couple of my blogs this way.  I am not trying to be rude I assure you.  A while back, I wrote a blog that had to do with the most important document in American history.  One of the res...

"At this price, the sellers will not make any repairs!".  I saw this on a listing today.  Today?   In today's market?  Good luck on that.  Why on earth would a seller tell their agent that.  Most importantly, why would an agent not tell them that this is the wrong way to go about the listing.  In...

March 9, 1959 was the date of the first of 800 million Barbie Dolls (of course, the sales continue still) that have been sold.  I bet my sister had at least a dozen of them.  I can tell you from first hand experience, it hurts to step on one in the dark when you are barefooted.  I have seen them ...
