Dick Greenberg  is hosting an ActiveRain contest/challenge this month titled "May Contest - Before & After".  Dick's contest/challenge is pretty straightforward, basically all we need to do is post a picture that is work related (Dick is cutting us non-Realtors a little slack on this requirement) before we edit it.  We need to make at least two corrections to the picture such as cropping, correct a tilt, adjust the color, etc.  Then we need to write a blog of at least 200 words or more explaining what we did to correct the picture, and the software we used to do it.For us non-Realtors using a picture that is work related is not easy to come up with, especially for Loan Originators.  So I have chose to do a before of a blog I post almost every month about a local event.The Russell Libra...

There are many signs of Spring, and most people would associate the first signs of Spring with the blooming of Spring Flowers, which provide us with beautiful colors after a cold gray Winter.  For others it may be a specific day on the calender, or when the snow is all gone and the weather becomes warmer.  While these are all great reasons to celebrate Spring, for the Souto Family Spring does not arrive until the lawnmower, and its buddies the edger & trimmer are pull out, the snow blower is put away, and the grass is cut for the first time.  This year this happened this past Sunday, and April 23rd Was Once Again The 1st Sign Of Spring For The Souto Family.     This year the arrival of Spring for the Souto Family was on the same day as past two years.  Spring is my favorite time of they...
