When you purchase a home, even a home that isn’t new, there is a very good chance that you will be offered a home warranty as a safety net against expensive, unforeseen repairs. It may sound like a great form of financial protection—but is it really the safety net that homeowners expect? Let’s find out if home warranties are worth it. KEY TAKEAWAYS A home warranty reassures a homebuyer and provides the seller with a measure of protection against complaints about home defects that arise after the sale closes. The improper maintenance clause common to warranties can mean the new homeowner isn’t really protected if something goes wrong and the previous owner hadn’t maintained the system properly. The homeowner may have little or no say in the model or brand of a replacement component or m...

Early last week, I decided to search for a part-time. Type job to let my mind be more productive. WOW!Well, it has been over 40 years since I had thought about it.Find a “real job”. I even meet a couple of males who said.To me, they were receiving unemployment from the Government and they were taking advantage of it.OH MY GOD! Has our country ever had an enormouschange, in the past 40 years! In my searching and interviewing, the first two job I inquired about theywere ready to hire me on the spot! And as the emailscontinue to come, more than 12 emails a day, with about 15 positions in each email. THERE IS WORK!You apparently see millions of people are drawing.Unemployment from OUR GOVERNMENT!If there were 72 hours in a day, I could hold down.Six or eight jobs per day.

My Most Awesome Father Days Gift...Last Sunday I received a small package frommy son for Father’s Day. Was this ever huge.Surprise! I had no idea what the meaning.of it was.Finally, I called and gently asked what the idea behind this small bracelet type item was all about, He reminded me I had told.him I was in the Navy a couple of years before.he was born. And as a radioman sometimes I had used morse code on the destroyerI was on, off the coast of Niet Nam.And if you looked closely.To the short and longer beads, it spelled out.UNSTOPPABLE!

There are moments where we are at the end of our rope. Moments where we question our own abilities. I spent time yesterday at a monument to one such time. While he had been successful and accomplished, he came off of (in his words) “a flop”. The event that he planned went poorly. At the same time he had a close and trusted friend start to plant seeds of doubt in this man’s mind that maybe he didn’t know all that he believed he did. He reluctantly accepted an invitation to speak at someone else’s event at a small place in California. While this young man was preparing, he prayed. He asked God for answers. And the answer came, The young man, placed aside all of his doubts and believed 100% that he was on the right track. He held his Bible aloft and declared aloud to God, “Father, I am goi...

Pay attention! Please. If it is too hot for youThis works because I tested it last summer.May or may not work for you until you practice itA few times. Because­, it requires, commitment, and focusDuring this past week, there were more than a dozen.people mentioning to me how hot it is, here in the desert.My thinking was, well it is not any hotter to you thanit is for the person standing on the street with a sign.This is a simple process. Do NOT look at a thermometer.to see what the temperature is. Do not listen to the TV,Radio, phone, or any other device that gives you the temperature.Do not listen to anyone talking about the weather. If necessaryJust walk away from them If that feels uncomfortable for you.Excuse yourself from them, (haha) even if it is to say I have.Diarrhea got to go!...

Are you interested in transforming your unfinished attic into usable living space? Whether you need an extra bedroom, office, or playroom, a DIY attic remodels a great way to add space to your home without paying for a whole home addition.  STRUCTURAL REINFORCEMENT Will you be adding a bathroom to your attic? Foresee heavy furniture in the space. It is advisable to hire an engineer to see whether your home's foundation and framing can handle the extra weight a finished attic will bring. At a minimum, you may need to strengthen the attic's floor joints, which can sometimes be too shallow or spaced too far apart to serve as an adequate floor.  CONSIDER YOUR HEATING AND VENTILATION NEEDS If your attic does not already have ductwork, you will need to determine if your current HVAC system wi...

Pictured above is a present from my niece who is visiting us with her fiancée from Minneapolis, Minnesota.  She loves working with clay, and took a pottery class. She met Mr. Right, while on an island in Thailand during an unexpected long stay in Southeast Asia during the Pandemic. He is British and was visiting.  They became friends and then fell in love... It is a perfect pitcher and they make a perfect picture!
