Condo rules prohibit "reptiles." I think my land turtle is technically a reptile, and wonder if we're going to have to buy another place that allows turtles. I know this sounds ridiculous, but could this rule possibly mean my 8" turtle, who lives in a terrarium, is against the rules? I've had thi...

If your state has a homestead exemption deadline, it may be fast approaching. It's a good idea to drop your buyers (who bought during this year) a note or e-mail reminding them of the filing deadline. It's a very thoughtful thing to do, and of course it's good business. Your customers will know y...
After watching the first half of the Steelers/Jets game, I was contemplating turning it off. It was a very one-sided rout, and boring. In the second half, however, the Jets came alive and made quite a game of it. Both Sunday and Monday, I thought Pittsburgh had invaded St. Augustine... I saw tons...
For those of you who read my "Prayers Needed" post of a week or so ago regarding my cousin who disappeared December 29th.... I spoke with his brother yesterday, and there is nothing new. The police are following tips and reported sightings, but the activity has really slowed. The family and frien...
