One of the bigger issues today. Don't think we are just referring to apartment living. Condo's can also be town homes. The drop in the market, the foreclosures, the economy and several other factors have turned condo's into nightmares. If you have cash, you may still be able to get a bargain, but...

This is all we've got ... one planet The other morning I came across an article in the Washington Post regarding the melting glaciers in Peru. It is safe to say that for the majority of my life, I never would have bothered to read the article.  Peru is so far away and the fact that they have gla...

Yep, that chicken has come home to roost! I have to preface this with the statement that I do not work for the IRS. I am not a CPA.  I am just an average guy that reads the newspaper.  Recently, I came across an article about taxes.  Now the focus of the article related to the fact that the Tax ...
