Selling Your Home? Better Upgrade!

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

If you plan to sell your older home in the near future and with a family of four, your upgrading choices are the roof, yard, front door that has seen better days and looks like an outdoor dartboard, replacing the walkway pavers and repaving the holes in the driveway, you may have overlooked who may be the one lookie loo person coming to your open house. Let me help you here, folks with a glowing real estate fact. That person will be a woman, and besides a casual and quick peek at the above mentioned items, her major concern will be relegated to two things: the kitchen and the Bolton bathrooms. She may excuse the kitchen because older appliances can be replaced, but an old, ratty-looking bathroom will be a turnoff. So grab your pen and your upgrading “need-to-do” paperwork, quickly move to the top of the page, and insert: bathroom.

Jonny Rips It Every Time

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

The tale of Jonny Saxophone was one of alcohol, depression and crime. Sure, he got his start as a successful wedding saxophonist Liverpool but it rapidly went downhill from there.

After he got on the booze, he became a bit of a con-man. He started out by flirting with ladies and trying to get his way in whatever way he could but is quickly escalated. Before long, he was holding up gas stations and robbing convenience stores just to fill his bottle.

If you knew Jonny, you’d understand that it was really about more than the drink — he really had a serious bout of depression. He’d play wedding gigs as a way to hopefully cheer him up, but it never worked. His depression finally got the best of him and he quit the game entirely.

These days Jonny can be seen on house arrest and public assistance, watching shows like “Cops” for a good time.
