Via Southern Maine and NH Real Estate~Your source of Info on the Berwicks~Josh Holt (RE/MAX Coast To Coast~ Dedicated to You!): Recently Rick Rogala, the Real Estate Marketing Coach from Chicago, put up his list of top ten business/motivaitional/inspirational books, and being the book worm that I am, I thought I'd put up my own top ten.

How's this for Nostalgia? - 01/30/10 05:48 PM
I'm taking Bob at his word and passing this on to all who can remember most of these !!!!!!!! Via Bob Cumiskey, US Army Retired, Your Sun City Center, Florida ~ Realtor (A1 Connection Realty, Inc.): Here's a great nostalgia email I received from my cousin. Funny thing is we were at a family reunion a couple years ago and reminicsed about quite a few of these items. I've made the print very large and bold because if you remember these things, chances are your eyes are not quite as sharp as they should be. Enjoy the flashback! If you don't remember any (4 comments)
Yellow Squash - Potato Pancakes Recipe - 01/30/10 09:12 AM
Just stumbled onto this recipe and decided to reblog it as a test to watch exactly where it goes(on a reblog) !!! Via Mike Saunders (Keller Williams Realty - Greater Athens): Ok, so the photo might look like it came from a faded menu but these are really good. They take about 30 minutes from start to table and can be a meal in themselves or used as a side dish. Ingredients: 1 medium baking potato or 2-3 Yukon Gold potatoes 1 8"-9" yellow squash, zucchini or crook-neck are good 1 small onion 1 egg 3 Tbsp flour (whole wheat preferred) Pepper Garlic (7 comments)
Best Baseball Book on the Market - 01/29/10 02:07 PM
I was over at Park City mall the other day and almost bought a book I already had @ Borders Express firesale ! It's that time of year I look forward to purchasing the finest book on baseball on the market , Baseball Prospectus 2010 !!! It scouts every player on a team's 40 man roster and makes calculated predictions for each in the coming season . It clearly lets you know who's a prospect and who's a suspect ! It's also filled with dry wit humor . Buy it on Amazon at a good discount ! Once you read (10 comments)

Sprint Cup Series @ The Monster Mile, Dover,DE. - 01/17/10 12:07 PM
As I write this we're only 118 days away until NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series comes back to Dover International Speedway ! Known as the Monster Mile this concrete oval track was opened in 1969 with King Richard(#43) winning it's first race on July 16th of that year. By 1971 it was pretty much a NASCAR only track. It is a great place to see NASCAR's finest live because you can completely view the entire track ! A fellow Active Rainer took me to my first race here several years ago(2008). Getting there on Saturday I got to take in both (16 comments)

Old Testament Staples to Improve Your 2010 Health ! - 01/14/10 12:31 PM
Our country just doesn't get it when it comes to nutrition ! We lead active and over scheduled lifestyles that cause us to default to prepared and canned foods. While these quick fixes can leave us feeling full, there's often very little nutrition in what we've consumed. Add to that preservatives and chemicals your body was never meant to ingest. Recently while shopping at Darrenkamps Market, I met a young couple who were loading up their cart over by the Hamburger Helper section. They started showing me packages of all their favorite Hamburger Helper options . Then they stated (11 comments)
Is Your Bible Lonely ? - 01/10/10 08:56 PM
Many people who will say that they are Christians remain completely unfamilar with the truths of GOD's Word. The Barna Group (google Barna, read the blogs on their website and get ready to be shocked ! ) did a survey several years ago that discovered that 6 out of 10 who considered themselves to be Christians DID NOT open their Bibles after Sunday service for the rest of the week (60%) !!! All of this is shocking as even nominal Christians have heard biblical truths like 2Timothy 3:16& 17. Yet the importance of knowing GOD's Word has never been greater (5 comments)
