There seems to be a lot of debate on Active Rain about non-real estate related posts.  Most of you already know my position on the subject...

Looking in the rear view mirror  provides interesting perspective, occasional regret and a chuckle or two.  When one reaches a pivotal turning point both  personally and professionally... coming Full Circle can be music to one's ears.

Oh Johnny!  I had the pleasure of seeing The Lone Ranger on the big screen last week, and I must say... Johnny Boy has some Depp depth.
