Here is a link to a good article in the Observer on how to utilize natures fertilizer. Free Fertilizer Too bad we can't barter black gold for black oil, I'd be set.

"At least your not selling a Hummer"

..says a Wall Street Journal(WSJ) Article about selling homes. WSJ put together a list of items that will sell your home when you really are serious about selling. The article is very well written and hammers home on topics where some Real Estate Agents tend to shy away from. Not us of course. It doesn't matter to us if you sell now or sell later, but if you sell later, then we're gonna need you to buy now.

Central Ave.'s Future

Central Avenue is deemed to be one of the last few remaining unique spots in Charlotte, and by unique we mean small town business unique. A redevelopment is underway, but piece by piece. Developers are hoping that with all the new building the Plaza Midwood Area won't lose it's charm. I don't see how it could when local bar owners and tattoo parlors are part of the planning. One building features two places to get spirits and then hobble down the stairs and get some body ink. Maybe this is how Gotham City got it's start. I personally think they should start an urban food farm like Cuba. With rising food prices this would be a great addition to local restaurants and residents. A Family Dollar will be another part of the new business additions, maybe because they are one of a few out there that has actually shown profits in the last quarter. Starbucks is planning on relocating 367, of their 600 store closings, to this area.
