Title: 15 Items (10-30-09) sponsored by AMERICAN MALE SALONS

Light week with only 15 items but fortunately we have the Eagles and Phillies to keep us occupied.  I did not list any of the Halloween parties as there are too many to include.  Check out the sites like www.upcomingevents.com or www.philly2night.com for that information. 

This week I had two numbers on my mind.  4 – the number of wins we need from the Phils.  35,000 – the number of miles my motorcycle has traveled.  I had been watching that one creep up for a while and am proud to finally have achieved it.  Those miles started back in April 2001 when I bought the bike.  Had a few lucky situations along the way but for the most part, not many close calls on the road.

I went to the dentist this week.  Was surprised (and pleased) how advanced they are now.  My chart is now on a monitor which is updated as they work on you.  thought it was cool.

I hit the Pearl Jam show on Tuesday (and going tonight too).  Crazy how they beef up security outside the area compared to the Bruce shows last week.  Was not impressed with Pearl Jam’s lighting and screens.  Seemed very 1999 to me.

I am in need of a QUICK BOOKS expert.  If you are one or know of one, please email me.

And as always, I ask that if you are buying or selling a home in the greater philly area, please talk to me about it.  I make my income through real estate and your help in is appreciated.  - Mark

Local Philadelphia company Belles Productions has just released the holiday Yule log video for 2009: The Jingle Boys DVD and the Jingle Belles DVD, two totally unique products that are perfect for holiday parties and stocking stuffers. 
These DVDs are in the same vein as the "fireplace" DVDs that you have probably seen before, but with a fun and sexy twist!!  Unlike those other fireplace DVDs, the Belles fires are stoked by sexy young men (the Jingle Boys) and women (the Jingle Bells) scantily clad in their tight undies and lingerie.  They appear periodically and warm themselves by the fire, enjoy a glass of wine, and even add logs to the flames. 

Check out a preview and some screen shots of each DVD at www.bellesproductions.com.
