As I sit here eating a delicious pumpking soup I made yesterday--man is it good, it's a very simple soup, I complicated it by throwing in some seafood!  I think about is it because we feel so self important that we think everyone needs to hear the wisdom we have to share?  Is it some type of cathartic process which helps us come to terms with our career?  Is it purely for web presence so we can get 'ranked' somewhere out there in the nebulous world we call the Internet/world... I do it for alittle bit of all of the above.  I once laughed at people who blogged and now I find myself being one of those people.  It does help me to release my thoughts, I think I would be a bit more brutal if it was a personal blog, but since my work and life are seemingly intertwined and sometimes indistingu...

Ok, I was away for a little while, away meaning busy beyond all belief!  I had an interesting week last week, let's see, where should I begin?  I will start at the beginning of the week.  My client for the duplez in the Greenville are of Jersey City had issue with her credit report, we met with the management company which I believe smotthed everything out.  Even though there were 'issues' with her credit, I believe since she met the management company they realized that she was a legitimate person and not a 'flake.'  I was very happy when we were able to get her through, the apartment was a tough sell and she is taking it for three years!   Saturday morning I was with a gentleman and his son from Chicago--more on that later.  I received a call from the management company that I should ...

It's been pleasant having the day off today, I'm barbecuing right now, chicken and shrimp.  My wife is making potato salad and a cake, I just want to finish cooking and be done for the day--hence bbq at 11:00AM--lol! I tried to take a few days off the last couple of dys, but unfortunately business does happen.  I have several clients looking for places in Hoboken and Jersey City.  I totally misread my client yesterday, I originally met her and her daughters while looking for an apartment in Jersey City, the Mom immediately took a liking to me and said she was interested in a one bedroom in Hoboken, NJ.  Now I have been under the weather the last two weeks, so I was in and out of feeling well, but my client was determined to look at apartments.  We did go out yesterday and it turns out s...

one of my childhood 'heroes' pass away.  The death of Gary Coleman left me very melancholy, I wasn't a huge fan, but did watch the show religiously when I was younger. One takes these people for granted because they always seem to be 'there.'  I never thought twice about Gary Coleman all these years, except when I heard him on Howard Stern or The Insider, and even then I thought the guy was a tragic figure, I felt bad for him for all that he's been thru. When I learned he died I felt like a little bit of more of my childhood was gone, I know it's part of getting older and eventually everyone does die.  What makes it more poignant is that he was only 42, heck I'm 41 myself.  It's very tragic to lose a young person, and I feel extremely sad for his family for they have outlived their son....
