delta county: I Didn't Recognize My Uncle... - 05/25/13 07:03 AM
I Didn't Recognize My Uncle... in his Marine dress blues. He was beautiful  I was only 3 years old or there abouts. It had been a while since we had seen him. He had been in a place I didn't understand called, Vietnam. Uncle Bill was on leave and came home to visit me. He knocked on the front door, and nobody we knew used that door, and I had to get mommy to answer the door. He went against his father's wishes. He went against his sisters' wishes. We had a large family. I wish I could paint a picture for you … (45 comments)

The park is a great setting for any kind of gathering, and we got to enjoy … (3 comments)

delta county: My Husband Has Come Up With An Innovative Idea to Beat Rising Gas Prices - 08/29/11 10:27 PM
It's a bit difficult to take clients with you to show property, but it's a lot cheaper to maintain than a 3/4 ton pickup. Dan worked on this for two days with a buddy, and they had it up and running by early this afternoon. The frame is from an old outdated 21 speed Gary Fisher mountain bike.
It met all the specs and Dan and Ted attached a motor and gas tank to the old frame. It was so funny to see them motoring around our small mountain town. This "new" bike really got a lot of attention. He has a … (33 comments)

delta county: The Cedaredge Tennis Courts Are Sporting a New Look - 08/29/11 08:25 PM
After a couple of failed attempts, the town of Cedaredge was finally able to get the tennis courts resurfaced. The money came mostly from lottery funds. This year, thanks to a letter writing campaign, the town was able to get the grant money to get the job done. The new surface looks great, and the walls have been painted, too. The nets just went back up last week. Now all that has to be done, is to get the hitting walls in place.

My daugher plays tennis and she can't wait to try out  the new surface. Way to … (7 comments)

delta county: What Does It Mean To You??? Good Or Bad, UnEducated or NOT - 06/27/11 02:29 AM
Some of us go through our careers just doing the minimum amount of education. We do what we have to do to get by and and we are busy people. I understand this to a point. Recently someone has been blogging and asking about what the GRI designation means. What does it mean to consumers? Some know what this means. Some don't. Does having a bunch of letters after your name, make you stand out...maybe. I don't know this for a fact, but what I do know is that I have taken the time to complete a long course to get … (25 comments)

delta county: You Just Never Know What You Are Going To Find At A Foreclosure House - 06/17/11 01:59 AM
I had to do an interior inspection on a Freddie Mac property. I've done plenty of these, and some of the houses are in poor condition. This one is in good condition and will show well. I inspected the property and it was a nice day so I left the front door open. When I walked out the front door I was greeted by this little guy.
He climbed the bricks and then followed me around like a puppy.
I called my friend that runs the no kill humance society and has done wildlife rehab. I hope she was able to … (22 comments)

delta county: What is the best use you've found for your Tablet??? - 05/04/11 11:37 PM
Even in my advanced years...as my teenager likes to remind me, I'm still trying to keep up with the technology. I just recently upgraded to a smart phone and then took it one step further and bought a tablet a few weeks later. The tablet uses the Android technology....the same as my phone. I like the little thing and can see the advantages of carrying it around instead of my laptop.
My question to all of you is...What is the best use you've found for your tablet??? I"ve installed the mortage calculator app and other apps I find appealing. But I'm curious … (25 comments)
