When I was a baby, a door-to-door salesman knocked on the door and sold my mother a set of books called "Journeys Through Bookland".  It was about 14 volumes of classic children's stories.  They started with nursery rhymes, then Aesop's Fables, then the classic fairy tales, the...
After a showing appointment this afternoon, I took a circuitous route home with my new camera on the front seat of the car.  And when I got to the Capitol building, I pulled over and snapped this shot.  So here is the legislative branch of our government, be it ever so dysfunctional.  The archit...
For years, I've had a favorite photo shop - Penn Camera.  They had a small shop near Dupont Circle and a large store in Rockville, Maryland.  They had a large inventory, a knowledgeable staff and good prices.  I was out in Marylnd previewing properties, and I thought I'd stop by to see wh...

It's hard to believe that my brother Jack and I were ever this small!  This was taken in the back yard of the house we lived in in Williamsburg, Kentucky - a pretty town just above the Tennessee/Kentucky line.  And I can't help but believe we were both waiting for this photo session to b...
When I am on the listing side of a transaction, an important part of my job is to ensure that, when the new buyers do their final walk-through, everything is as it should be. The house should be empty The cleaner the better All repairs included in the inspection contingency removal should be comp...
Question:  I just put up my first ActiveRain post, and I got a cranky email from somebody that it wasn't original so I don't get points.  It was great information that I found on the Internet, and I thought it would be great to share it with my readers.  What's the deal? Answer: Sound...
