The following is an excerpt from a court case in which a court ruled that the seller bank HAD NO DUTY TO INFORM THE BUYER that the city had previously purchased a portion of the property.   No Duty to Disclose Prior Purchase A Missouri court considers whether a lender had to disclose that the city had purchased a portion of the front yard in order to widen a road.

Not so wordless Wednesday.  This hawk (?) has been perched on a treetop right outside my house for days so I have to be careful when I walk my 3 pound yorkie.   Whenever we go outside the hawk starts to immediately circle us.  The pictures don't do justice.  She (?) is huge!  Her wing span is immense.  There is a 2nd one but they are rarely in the same tree and the 2nd one is virtually impossible to photograph.

One of my good friends just sent me this and I thought you would all enjoy it. Husband Store A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City , where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates: You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building! So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads: Floor 2 - These men ...

Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas formed from the decay of radium.   More and more today you will see the test being done for Radon in home inspections.   Radon is a health hazard, causing lung cancer. Testing is the only way to know if you are at risk from Radon.  The Surgeon General recommends testing all homes below the third floor for Radon.Since Radon is a gas it may come into your home through any openings in your foundation whether it be an older home or a new construction.  All homes should be tested or re-tested at some point for the presence of Radon.  Short term tests can remain in the home for 2-90 days depending on the type of device.  Long term tests remain in the home for more than 90 days.  When doing a home inspection for the reason of a purchase, a canister...
