Right now I am caressing my old Formica countertops. I'm gazing lovingly at their knife nicks and flirting with their not-quite-tight seams. Suddenly their beige boringness is making me swoon. What's caused this love affair with my un-updated kitchen?  This article in the New York Times. Accordin...

If you're new to my territory, St. Louis' Illinois suburbs including Madison County and surrounding areas, you might not know about one of the most beautiful places on Earth -- the stretch of highway called the Great River Road between Alton and Grafton, Illinois.

Last summer I helped two of my favorite customers, Kristin and Rob, buy their first home. It's a charming brick bungalow with spacious rooms and a lot of character, located in Collinsville, Illinois.

What would America be like without a long list of the "World's Biggest" items? Over the years, I've seen the world's biggest rocking chair (in Missouri), the biggest 8-ball (also Missouri... maybe there's a trend), the biggest basket (Ohio) and too many more roadside oddities to name. Here in Mad...

Since it's the time of year for fireworks, I thought I'd muse today about the explosion of restaurants here in Edwardsville Illinois (which is in Southwestern Illinois/Suburban St. Louis, Mo). A few years ago, Edwardsville and Glen Carbon residents had to drive miles to reach a variety of dining ...
