Are you home shopping? With thousands of homes for sale, looking through endless real estate listings can be a tiring process. You'll normally find that the process is much more manageable if you narrow your focus to houses that fit your criteria (and pretend you don't even know the others exist). What does that house look like for you? What features and amenities are must-haves and what are like-to-haves? Do you need a big backyard for your dogs? How many bedrooms do you need? Is your new neighborhood safe? What about the commute? Once you've narrowed it down, the search becomes much less overwhelming.

2012 Election Results Map from U-Pack
A friend recently moved from The South to Connecticut. After seeing the results of last night’s election, she was surprised that she had moved to a strong Democratic state—it’s something she hadn’t thought about before she moved. If you are planning a move, and you feel strongly about moving to a state with residents who vote predominately for the political party you’re affiliated with, take a look at the Election Results Map below. It’s color-coded based on 2012 Election Results.

Unless you're in Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, or the Northern Marianas Islands, don't forget to set your clocks back this weekend! Daylight Saving Time officially comes to an end Sunday, November 4th.
And you know what that means... an extra hour to do whatever you wish! If my kids will participate, I plan to sleep (and I consider that a gift). What about you? How will you spend your extra hour?
Whatever you choose – enjoy!
