Patrick Murphy – Taking the Hill

February 19 brings the release of a much anticipated (well at least by me and other Murphy supporters) book by Representative Patrick Murphy entitled Taking the Hill: From Philly to Baghdad to the United States Congress.

I had the pleasure of going to work with Patrick in June of 2005 when he was just getting started with his campaign and it has been amazing to see the journey he has taken to now being the first and only member of congress to serve in Iraq. I will never forget sitting in a coffee shop with Patrick that summer (we didn’t have an office) and talking to him about some of the big political players in Philadelphia and Washington not wanting him to run. They thought he was too young and too new to the political process. It was basically in their minds not his turn. We sat there and I told him not to worry about it. I told him to stay in this race and that if they wanted a guy who had served his country in a war to step aside, well, they were going to have to come and beat us. I was probably getting a little too big for my britches at the time as well but I am sure glad Patrick forged ahead and worked as hard as he did.

So if you get the chance, go out and buy Patrick’s book or order it online. I am sure you get a good feel for the type of honorable person I know Patrick to be.

    Thanks for your posting. One other thing is that if you are marketing your property on your own, one of the difficulties you need to be aware of upfront is how to deal with home inspection reviews. As a FSBO vendor, the key towards successfully moving your property and also saving money about real estate agent profits is expertise. The more you are aware of, the more stable your property sales effort will likely be. One area when this is particularly essential is reports.

    I have witnessed that sensible real estate agents all over the place are starting to warm up to FSBO Marketing. They are noticing that it’s not only placing a poster in the front place. It’s really in relation to building associations with these vendors who at some time will become purchasers. So, while you give your time and effort to helping these vendors go it alone : the “Law of Reciprocity” kicks in. Great blog post.

    Thanks for your write-up on this blog site. From my personal experience, there are times when softening upwards a photograph could provide the photography with a dose of an artistic flare. Sometimes however, the soft clouds isn’t exactly what you had under consideration and can usually spoil an otherwise good image, especially if you thinking about enlarging this.
