It's that time again.  Springtime will be here soon... or at least the calendar says it will.  Looking out the window here in my office in Mentor, Ohio, with the snow covering the ground, plus what is falling right now, it sure doesn't SEEM like Spring. But according to the calendar, Spri...

All so often we see articles titled "Should I Sell My Home During the Holidays?" Although this is a great question, and often produces some great discussions on all the positives and negatives of Selling or Buying during the Christmas Season... the questions and the discussions often st...

Well... I think the long streak of good luck... weather-wise... has come to an end. And... doesn't it figure that it would happen on Friday the Thirteenth ? What am I talking about ?  Well... if you live in NorthEastern Ohio, and just look out the window, you will know very quickly.  I was ho...

It almost seems like it was just last week.  Or maybe even just last month. You know.  You remember it well.  All that SNOW ! Here in Mentor, Ohio we had snow just about up to our eyeballs.  Okay... you really had to be a "short person" to actually have the snow be even close to your ey...

I just read a post by a home inspector about the perils of finding a home that had the hot and cold water lines reversed. It reminded me of something I remembered from long, long ago.
