Week in Review: Lakers Edition

by Kay Lynn

Los Angeles Lakers

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Lakers for their championship win this past week.  I would feel sad for the Boston Celtics but that team has a great history of championships and great players so they don’t need my pity.

Also, happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.  My husband and I will spend time with his father for brunch and then a family dinner in the evening.  I hope you have an enjoyable day! 

It was so hard to narrow down the list of great articles this week so I hope you spend time checking on this list.

I guess since you just spent a little money in my beautiful capital city of Atlanta, I won’t pick on your choice of NBA teams.

Thanks for including me!

I appreciate that! Since San Diego can’t have their own team, we’ve adopted the nearest one.

My wife and I are about to place our home on the market and our real estate agent told us we should expect to offer a home warranty to the buyer when we sell our home, and that we should probably request one from the seller when we buy our next home. It’s definitely something we will look in to. 🙂

Ryan, I think you’ll find buyers expect it these days (and so will you!). Good luck with selling your home. Around here things are moving again.
