So in a desperate effort to stay productive, I hung another 155 door hangers on one of my farm areas.  I call it my Carrolwood Market Update.  I put a little marketing of me above a chart of the active homes in the neighborhood.  I think it's pretty nice.  My wife creates it on Microsoft Publishe...
