My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, 'What's on TV?' I said, 'Dust.' And then the fight started...  ****************************************** My wife and I are watching "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" while we were inbed I turned to her and said, "Do you want to have sex?" "No," she answered. I then said, "Is that your final answer?" She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, "Yes." So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend." And then the fight started....  ****************************************** Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, grabbed thedog, and slipped quietly into the garage.

Easiest delicious chocolates you'll ever make! 1 package butterscotch chips - a name brand seems to make it taste better than store brand1 package chocolate chips- semi-sweet1 can of spanish peanutsIn heavy saucepan or double boiler mix and melt both package of chips at one time. Stir constantly and don't let it scorch, as they melt quickly. As mixture gets smooth, pour in the spanish peanuts. Have wax paper on trays ready and drop spoonfuls of mixture onto wax paper, each one being the size of a turtle chocolate you would buy at the store, or larger if you like. Chill in refridgerator until firm. These are melt in your mouth good and my family gobbles them up. They can't sit out too long at a party, as they will start to melt if left at room temp for really long periods of time.

You would think last month's Existing Home Sales report signals more trouble ahead for the housing market.  Quite the opposite. Beyond the headlines is the real story;  one that shows housing market fundamentals are coming back into balance. As home values tick lower, it appears, value buyers are stepping in and snapping up supply.  It's true the number of homes sold fell to its lowest levels in 12 years, but we can't ignore the number of homes available to buy fell, too. Banks have put the brakes on foreclosures Economic uncertainty is reducing job-related relocations Builders have all but stopped building new homes The national housing supply is as low as it's been in more than a year. Based on the current rate of sales activity, the national housing supply would be 100% sold in 9.6 m...

Simpsonville South Carolina is a great town.  It's got many of the amenities of a large city, but it has a small town atmosphere.  For instance, you can go down to Barefoot Annie's coffee shop on SE Main Street and enjoy a laid-back session with a local musician, or you can go walking on Main Street and look at the shops.  Near the interstate, there's several major department stores, and everything in-between. There are several nice parks in Simpsonville, including many sports fields (including the one I play ball at).  Simpsonville Public Works does a great job of maintaining them, keeping them in top shape for everyone to enjoy. Many great subdivisions lie in and around Simpsonville, with price ranges starting under 100,000 to a million.  Just about anyone can find what they're lookin...

E-Wisdom     I just want to thank all of you for your educational emails over the past year.Thanks to you, I no longer open a public bathroom door without using a paper towel.   I can't sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what hashappened on it since it was last washed.I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving because the number one pass-time while driving alone is picking your nose. (Although cell phone usage may be taking the number one spot)Eating a Little Debbie sends me on a guilt trip because I can only imagine how many gallons of trans fats I have consumed over the years.I can't touch any woman's purse for fear she has placed it on the floor of a public  bathroom.  Yuck!I must send my special thanks to whoever sent me the one about poo...

Why, Why, Why Do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are going dead? Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough money? Why Does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet? Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle? Why Do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection? Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard? Why Does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him? Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets? Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'? If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes? Why Is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white? Is there ever a day that mattresses a...

Just in case you need a laugh: Remember it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a high school diploma to fix one; a reassurance to those of us who fly routinely in our jobs. After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet, which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.  Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.  By the way, UPS is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an acci dent.  P: Left inside main tire almost needs replac...

Something cool that Xerox is doing If you go to this web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services. How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!  This is a great site.  Please send a card.   It is FREE and it only takes a second. I did mine. Start at the above link or http://www.letssaythanks.com/Home1280.html THIS ONE!  You can pick the card, the verse and they do all the work.    www.activerain.com/miacovelli04

I must tell you that I am not imaginative!  I am a factual, almost engineering type person.  My mind does not roam, I am not quick witted, I have been told I have a 'dry sense of humor'.  I do however have many friends that are very imaginative and have a 'wet' sense of humor!  If mine is dry theirs must be wet, right?  I get e-mails and text messages ALL the time with humorous stories, jokes, comics, serious stories, friendship rings and the list could go on & on.  My blogs have become most of these.  Good, bad or indifferent!  I open these e-mails/texts and start to laugh at the funny ones or tear up at the sad ones.  I notice you too must be laughing because the funny blogs get the most hits and comments.  Some people don't like that I'm putting funny blogs on AR BUT if I laugh then ...

For the hundreth time, all real estate is local.  Zillow.com reported today home values in Simpsonville, SC decreased a paltry -.11% in the third quarter of 2008.  Great News for buyers and sellers in Simpsonville.  Our market, although not unscathed, is certainly much stronger than most media folk would have you believe.  This number is substantially lower than the -9.7% decrease nationwide.  Often, perception is realty.  It is tough dealing with home buyers and home sellers in a down market.  Use this data to keep them informed of local conditions.
