Real Estate, etc... by Eric Michael: July 2011

Overrated and Underrated. July 27, 2011

Hi Everyone,

Let me know what you think about this type of blog. I think I'm going to try to write at least one a week. There's a lot of things that can fit into these categories.

Overrated- Jogging. Now I'm sure there's a few, maybe even quite a few of you who would argue this, and I hope you do! I need to lose a few pounds for sure, but my feet already hurt at the end of the day and there are times when my back gives me problems. The last thing I need right now is to have these pains increase because I'm running around the neighborhood sweating like a pig.

Underrated- A new computer. Sure you wouldn't want to buy one every year, but I just purchased a new one and it's quiet, fast and awesome! Plus the monitor that came with it is almost as big as my tv.

I'll try to put a couple of each Overrated and Underrated's in each post, but right now I gotta run.

Please, add you own or comment on mine. I'd love to hear from you!

Talk to you soon,

Eric...
