 Some very interesting fun lawn ornaments ;o) When I was visiting my sister around 6 years ago in Minnesota we happen to take a drive to one of her friends home to make sure it was secure. As we walked around I couldn't help but see these little guys hanging around the trees. I mentioned to my sister before we left that I had to get out my camera and take a few photographs.  As I was focusing on these interesting lawn ornaments I burst out into laughter. My sister said what's so funny? I said to her, "these lawn ornaments are great" and what a fun way to create joy and laughter to a persons lawn and home.If you look close you can see that the ornaments are attached to a old piece of wood that looks like a branch on the first 2 photos and then 1 small screw is drilled into the tree.  I l...

My father quit traveling by air several years ago because of his knees and back, so it's been long time since I've seen him.His last visit to Las Vegas was 2-3 years ago, I can't even remember. And it's been around 4-5 years since I have visited him in Minnesota.There is a friend of mine that sent me a text message yesterday and mentioned that the doctor has given his father 90 hours to live, give or take and my friend is the same age as me.And my friends father mentioned to his children that he (Does Not) want to be hooked up to life support machines, so it's only a matter of days.Between my sister back in Minnesota and my friend telling me about his father, it really has me thinking that Vegas Bob needs to visit his father. So where has all the time gone?  Robert Swetz Jr, Steven Swet...

"It is impossible to sell a home in this market." I'll agree - it's not easy... ...but it's not impossible.  Homes are still selling in Kanabec County.  In the last 6 months, 78 homes have sold in Kanabec County.  (April through October)  The price range of the homes that sold has been as low as $8,000 and as high as $499,000!   The average price of a sale for the last six months is $100,852 with just under 6 months on the market.  Homes are selling!  How do you compete?  The average price per finished square foot is $61.34.  Simply multiply this number by your total finished square footage for a rough estimate of your home's value in average condition. Is your home in higher demand?  The homes we see with the most interest right now are homes with 5+ acres and homes that qualify for FH...

Robert Swetz (Vegas Bob's) Mother passed away 2:00 Central Time 8-27-2010   Robert Swetz is very sad because he didn't have the chance to say "Goodbye" to his Mother. I received a phone call yesterday from my sister saying our Mother's body was shutting down, and to wait a few days and see what happens. Dorothy Swetz aka (Dorothy Gilbert) was a very loving mother and shall be very missed by all of us. She had been fighting "Cancer" for around 35 years and we all wondered how she continued to be so strong. Dorothy (Dodie) came into our lives when our real Mother had left us when I was around eight years old, and even though Dodie was our step-mother I felt she was our real Mother because she was with us through all these years. I will be heading to Minnesota to spend some time with our F...

No one can enjoy freedom unless they are willing to surrender some part of it. Tha only way to entertain some folks is to listen to them.  (My in-laws) Education is a chest of tools. The only thing harder than sticking to a diet is keeping quiet about it. Success has many friends! If youth really were wise, it would miss most of its fun. No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader.  (Thank You Richard and others.) Have a great night.

With the news telling us what a horrible market it is, many home sellers are worried that there is no hope for selling their home. I'm here to show you that there is. Right now, as of 2:07 AM on January 10th, there are 11 single family listings that are pending in Kanabec County. 7 of the houses pending are in Mora, Minnesota. 2 of the houses for sale are located in Ogilvie, Minnesota. 1 of the houses for sale is located in Brook Park, Minnesota. And last but not least, 1 of the houses for sale is located in Braham, within Kanabec County. The number of days on market for these properties in Kanabec County ranged anywhere from 47 days to 219, with the average days on market to come in at 132.  That means that it takes a little over 4 months on average to sell your home!  That puts our ma...
