Welcome to our Video and Audio Podcast Review of our Q 3 2017 Newsletter. For those on the road or just unable to grab the time to read, our podcast type review gives you the behind the scenes insight to our thoughts, observations and deep views of the entire Newsletter.

Let’s get going!

Residential Housing Price Analysis

Sometimes the best article ideas turn into more than we ever think. In our Q 3 2017 newsletter,  we set out to review Residential Housing Prices over the last half century. Seven graphs later we come up with more  observations than conclusions. We think you will enjoy the journey– be sure to listen or watch the Video as it gives great details of our frustrations and discoveries.

What we are doing this Summer

Our editor insists and we always receive nice comments back on our Summer plans- with more focus on you and the world, it is hard for us to talk about ourselves, but this is our annual print coverage to do so … we hope you enjoy the pictures as well as our sharing of our summer plans.

Fitbit App of the Quarter

While not really an “App” we review the app that goes with our Fitbit finding and speak on the surprising changes in behavior this unassuming device has had, as well as a few family tussles, all in good spirit.

Parting Thoughts

Watch for a reminder of our hopefully awesome Saturday Before-Early November 18 Holiday Party as we learn how to use all our new technology that we have deployed this summer.

Thanks for the time!

Sneak Peek at App of the Quarter in the Coming Q 3 2017 Newsletter

Its hard for us to hold off on surprises…

It’s hard for us to hold off on fun articles too…

With lot’s more details coming in the next Newsletter….

Surprise! Here is a preview of the App of the Quarter.

App of the Quarter20170604_161221000_iOS

This quarter’s App is more of a device and a new way to track yourself as we review the Fitbit and it’s changes on our behavior.

Step Tracker

Mostly known as  a step tracker, we argue there is more to these devices than just a fancy step tracker, although they do a great job of monitoring your daily activities via your motion or steps.

Also lots of fun for friend and family challenges…cheating accusations will occur, especially from smaller frames to larger ones.

Heart Monitor

With a family of high blood pressure, the heart monitor was very intriguing…. you may not beat as often as you think, leading to possibly better blood pressure than monitored while under the pressure of your regular doctor or just before the knife of your friendly dentist.

Sleepy? Maybe you are not sleeping enough?20170606_193726000_iOS

One of the biggest surprise is just how little sleep you may be getting, unknowingly. Take pride it getting 8 hours of sleep, just as the Dr. ordered? Bet you are not getting as much as you think you are. Yes these devices also monitor our sleeping.

Look for more in the coming Newsletter as this is just a taste to wet your self monitoring appetite!

Have a Great Day!
