Jersey Shore Meets Social Media (Just my Take) Okay so Google + is public, and the it seems that some people just love it, and then some people don't. That is completely understandable, what I am puzzled by is the sheer hate I am seeing in some posts. What is causing that? Honestly it does remind me of bad episode of Jersey Shore. Why all this commotion about a which social media platform is the ONE! Maybe I over simplify things but the way I see it, if you don't like Google +, don't engage on it, stick with what you … (5 comments)

While I did not face anything the likes of Japan, or anything catastrophic, it was an avalanche of things that really put my attitude … (10 comments)

You may not consider a home built in the 1950's to be historic but many of todays young home buyers do, those my age may choose the term "nostalgic" home "historic" home. Either way … (3 comments)

It is there that the 20th … (4 comments)
