Have had delays in our move to Wilmington, NC due to some medical testing for my transfer out of military. I am finished now, paperwork in hand! Wooohoooo!!!! Time to make some money!

I am in hotel w/depressingly slow internet so it has been frustrating to attempt posting and reading emails.

Business phone will be obtained beginning of August.

REI club meeting is 14 Aug and I will be there.

In process of reading "Think and Grow Rich" for second time with DETAILED notes (in the form of mind-mapping after a fascinating book by Tony Buzan entitled "Make the Most of Your Mind")

Have some good, simple ideas for business names and designs for cards/ website but I am concerned with violating copyrights/ laws. How do I verify my names have not been "taken"? I have done a google search but am not confident with results. How do I protect my ideas?

Puzzles are doing great and i am even learning to play better chess (the computer still beats my tail, though!!).

My next trip down to Wilmington is this week to sign some paperwork for our new residence. While down there will write down all the phone #s I see on bandit signs, FSBO publications, RE flyers, etc. I also intend to scout the local courthouse and introduce myself. Time to network!

TTFN...

I don't know if this allowed so someone say something, but trying to get very nice bus cards can cost an arm. My fiance got me on Vistaprint.com. They have good stuff. They are always pushing free stuff. I didn't go there for that part. The products are top notch. I have no affiliation with them btw.

The Tax Asssesors office is going to be fun and overwhelming. Here we have it packed with land men lately. DO NOT be afraid to take someones time there. Get help and use it. Trying to do it yourself will waste an enourmous amount of your time.

Perfectly OK to mention them. I've used them too, and was very pleased with the results.

FYI, where there will be a problem is if someone posts a message like "I know how to solve all your problems. Come to my web site, <link>." And, its a advertisement for a course/CD's/whatever.
