Every home for sale has its own distinct feature. It could be that priceless Van Gogh painting pristinely hanging in the foyer or a delicate heirloom chandelier passed on from generation to generation or a sturdy kitchen countertop that can withstand the most vicious culinary assault! Real estate buyers have their preferences, too. Sometimes, the success of a property sale could literally hinge on the type of wood your front door’s made of. Regardless, the buyers’ wishes reign supreme. Success in selling your home could follow this path. Not everything is about the technical details. Remember, before buyers sign on that dotted line, this much is true: there was at least one compelling feature in your home that completely won them over. Translated to your own home, what could that be? Wh...

Get top dollar for your best investment when you get the assistance of the top real estate agent. Your Shawnee home is your biggest investment. You want to make sure you get the top dollar for its sale, so you decide to hire a real estate agent to help you. But there are so many agents in Shawnee, and it can be a challenge to choose the best one.   One of the mistakes I see many first time home sellers make is hiring the first agent they meet. When you don’t have another option to work with, you have no basis for comparison. You won’t know the possible advantages and disadvantages of working with that agent until you are actually in the process of selling the home. It’s best to interview at least three agents before deciding which one to hire. If it turns out you like the first one afte...

This fellow lives in the Topeka Zoo in the giraffes' little habitat.  It sort of reminded me of the part in Seabiscuit where they put a monkey in his stable to keep him company.  The bird and the giraffes seem to happily coexist in the large mammals section, and I think this is a "companion bird", but I completely clueless about what it is.  The poof on the head reminds me of a poodle.

In 1961, I graduated from Topeka High School, in a class with an amazing bunch of kids who grew into some pretty amazing adults.  And this past weekend, we held our Golden Reunion.  It started off with a gathering Friday night, where we all decided that they should have much larger print on the name tags, which we really needed to help us recognize each other.  After hellos and hugs, we met up on Saturday morning for a tour of our old Alma Mater.  It's always been a beautiful school, but now it is on the National Reguister of Historic Places, which has allowed them to obtain some graints for restorations. I'd forgotten how great the library was.  It has the original furniture (it was restored by the inmates of a nearby prison in Hutchinson, Kansas) and the large working fireplace.  In t...

For the last several days, I've been looking for some good old Kansas beef cattle to photograph.  I've seen a few, but they were along the Kansas Turnpike as we were speeding by at the 80 or so miles an hour speed limit.  But this little guy, who lives at the Topeka Zoo, will have to do for today's shot.  When I first saw him, he was standing so still that I thought I was looking at a statue.  Then he started to chew whatever was in his mouth. When I was growing up in Topeka, the zoo was pretty basic.  The most exciting part was Monkey Island, funky home of a bunch of unruly primates who taught the local kids about the facts of life and tried to throw who knows what across the moat to zoo visitors.  Now it's a " habitat", no longer coed, and looking a bit more like a tropical rain fore...

Friday Fotos:  Topeka High School Tower This is the bell tower over the main entrance to Topeka High School, my alma mater.  I remembered it as being a pretty place, and was wondering what it would look like after many years.  It's still a pretty awesome structure.  The reunion festivities began tonight and will continue over the weekend.  It will be fun to once again roam the halls!

When I was growing up in Topeka Kansas in the 1950's, Potwin was a neighborhood of big old Victorian and Queen Ann homes that had become rather thin at the elbows, often used as boarding houses or broken up into apartments.  Now the neighborhood has blossomed, with some of the most beautiful restorations I've seen. Charles Wolcott Potwin bought 70 acres of land in near the Kansas River back in the 1890's, and divided it into 70 lots.  If you wanted to buy one, you had to agree to build a house that cost at least $2,000 to build.  In fact, the homes cost around $5,000 to build, and the neighborhood attracted prosperous lawyers, importers and a few real estate professionals.  The homes have wonderful architetural details, with fishscale shingles, wide verandahs (many of the wrapping aroun...

I have six weeks to lose fifty pounds and get a major face lift.  Yes, it's coming up.  It's not just a class reunion, it's a "0" year class reunion. So sweetie and I are planning a "Two for the Road" thing - not in my comfortable Lexus with a giant trunk and lots of room and a navigation system, but in his adorable little 2-seater with a trunk barely large enough to hold two little bitty suitcases. Well, his car does get better mileage. We're planning our route, trying to avoid aiming the car down I-70, which leads right from here to Topeka.  Yes, Topeka, Kansas.  The town I ran away from to New York City, where I began my big life adventure. I graduated from Topeka High School, a member of an amazing class of kids.  Like there was about a seven-way tie for class valedictorian, which i...

Google is no more... In an unprecedented decision Google, Inc. has decided to change it's name to Topeka, Inc. in honor of the city's recent decision to change it's name to Google, Kansas.  As April Fool's Day pranks go, this one is a doozy. Not because of any confusion over the name (I'm sure most people understand it's meant to be humorous) but because of the massive reach of this "joke." The name "Topeka" will be in front of the entire world for an entire day. Domestic and international news outlets are covering this story as if it's real news. And, this could be a huge step toward Topeka become a part of Google's ultra high speed broadband effort, although the CEO denies this in his blog. Now, if I could just get Topeka, Inc. to change it's name to Gotham. For more information on th...

Yep, it's true.  I learned yesterday listening to National Public Radio that my old home town has a new name. On March 1 of this year, the Mayor issued a proclamation that changed the name of Topeka, Kansas (the name is an Indian word that means "a good place to dig potatoes") to Google, Kansas.  They are trying to suck up to Google to become Google's Fiber Project test city.  Should they be chosen, its citizens will have super ultra high speed Internet - about a zillion times faster than what we have now. Google recently announced plans to build super fast, even uberfast, networks.  According to the NPR story, they are looking for towns of about 500,000 - a lot larger than Topeka, um, Google is now.  And Topeka, um Google is not alone.  Several other communities are also trying to get ...
