I am a fairly new blogger, but have become very comfortable on activerain quickly. Everyone is so welcoming and helpful here. I have noticed that many of you have extras...mees, play-lists, amazon recommendation lists, etc. I have created all of these things, and now I can't figure out how to ad them to my blog. HELP!!! I want to make my blog more personal, but need assistance. Also, how do I add a signature to my comments? Thank You in advance if you can help, and I promise to pass along anything I learn to others in my network. (16 comments)

Today was our annual "Bring A REALTOR to lunch program with the Women's Council of REALTORS, and the presentation was Tech Tools for REALTORS, by The Geek Squad/ Best Buy. I thought I was doing so well with my laptop and cell phone, but it seems that everyday, some new gadget is introduced. I have owned an I-pod for 6 months and just figured out how to actually use it. Today I learned about the touch-pod? I purchased a new digital camera last week, and from what I learned today...it is already old news. My Laptop is very high tech to (11 comments)

Five Crazy Cats, but 1 in particular! - 02/25/08 04:50 PM
Prior to becoming a REALTOR, I worked as a veterinary technician for 8 years. In the time that I worked at the animal hospital, I adopted 5 cats. I won't bore you with the details of them all, but one cat in particular. We had an adoption program for kittens, and had been very successful at finding the perfect home for each little bundle of fur. One day, we received a homeless litter, and within a week they had all been adopted. A week later, the chubby little tiger kitten in the litter was returned...for personal reasons (according to the client). The (6 comments)

Angel Dogs - 02/22/08 09:02 AM
I came across this during my work as a Veterinary Technician, and absolutely love it. I insert it into sympathy cards when humans that I know lose pets. Hope you all enjoy it, and that anyone who has ever lost a pet finds comfort in Angel Dogs. ANGEL DOGS When Dogs go to heaven, they don't need wings because God knows that dogs love running best. He gives them fields. Fields and fields. When a dog arrives in heaven, he just runs. Dog heaven has clear, wide lakes filled with geese that honk and flap and tease. The dogs love this. They run beside the water (3 comments)
Honest and Hard Working REALTOR® - 02/22/08 07:19 AM
Little Lessons in My Life My parents divorced when I was nine years old. My mother, the best mother in the whole world, did everything she could to give us what we needed and to teach us how to be honest, hardworking adults. She worked 3 jobs and took classes at night so that she could feed us and reach her dreams at the same time. If I learned anything from my mother, it was that you have to work hard for the things you want, always be honest, and never give up on yourself. I am disappointed at the work ethics (12 comments)

An Animals love can improve your health, your mind and your business. - 02/19/08 02:01 PM
An animals love can improve your health, your mind and your business. Did you know that sixty three percent of American households own a pet? The majority of those own more than one. I myself live with 5 cats and 1 dog...but I don't own them, they own me. Research has shown that living with pets provides health benefits. It is proven that pets help lower blood pressure, lessen anxiety and boost our immunity. Pets also offer unconditional love that's difficult to find anywhere else, and very appreciated after a long day of work. Walking a dog, being pushed around by a (3 comments)
