Thanksgiving break is coming up, what will you be doing?

Some of you may be early birding black friday? Taking the kiddos to the movies? Going on vacation and avoiding family drama? I like all of the above really. My son is now at the age where cartoons are sort of interesting if he's crashing cars in the living room or building and tearing down blocks at the same time.
So what do you do with a 16 month old? Well he likes messy things so maybe a hand print that looks like a turkey? Making a hat with colored construcion paper feathers? What are your thoughts? Here are some things I found: Paper Cup Turkeys

HGTV Fans: Our Listings are Now on The Front Door Real Estate Page!

Is watching HGTV and being a real estate agent eating, sleeping and breathing real estate? Well it is if you can add your listings to their website! HGTV is such a nationally know phenomenon, causing people to look at their homes in a different way. Where else can you learn about main water shut off valves BEFORE busting out that old blue toilet for your remodel? While some home trends I see on there are a little bizarre for my taste, they sure do preach about stainless steel in the kitchen. It's like walking into Tiffany's and not knowing where to go first. Ok, maybe not but it certainly makes a buyer feel like they are getting their money's worth when they see a seller has coughed up some change for the upgrade.

Anyways, so if you want a fun new way to search for our listings, check out the front door on HGTV. -Submitted by Amanda Cain, e-Pro

Tick Tock, Did You Get to Turn Back Your Clock?

If you felt like you got to sleep in on Sunday, November 7th, here's why: Daylight Savings Time! The federal law that established "daylight time" in the United States does not require any area to observe daylight saving time. But if a state chooses to observe DST, it must follow the starting and ending dates set by the law. From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to daylight saving time.
