…Â I see people turn off their cars and open their windows when they are waiting outside.Â Virtually every store I enter, I see at least one person waiting in an idling vehicle waiting for his or her companion.Â This morning at the Cingular store.Â The other day at Whole Foods (of all places, a new Range Rover was the culprit).So long as people have the spare cash to spend waste money this way, I’m not too worried.Â Unless, of course, they are all paying for gas with high-interest credit cards.

This from a client with whom I worked about four years ago:Always wanted to say that you are the agent I use to compare all others to..Â it seems that as we talk to more folks about buying/selling, we find that your business integrity is a hard find.Â Not too many folks out there are honest, intelligent, know the business well and have a sense of humor as you do.Â I only wish I could pass along more business to you but the “you’re the best agent ever!”…Â PS: Thanks for keeping up with the newsletter – enjoy reading and always love the Calvin (& Hobbes) snippets!Â Found your other web site today……Â After having just gone through a very rough transaction (the second one in five years), I really needed this….Â Words like this help to make what I do worthwhile.
Charlottesville Tomorrow has the report and podcast of the MPO’s creation of a Regional Transit Authority….Â By “regional,” they mean “Charlottesville” and “Albemarle” and not “UVA.”…Â They are the only ones who can build a damn road.Â Why aren’t they at the table?Julia Monteith, Senior Land Use Planner, representing the University of Virginia …Â indicates the University is taking a wait and see approach since past attempts to have a regional authority have not moved forwardYou can’t blame them.Â To be a true regional system, it would have to include the other members of the MSA.Â Look at where the workers come from – 6,000 from Fluvanna….Â 2,100 from Waynesboro area.But hey, it’s a start.
