I want to go to Longwood Gardens in Philadelphia, PA. Can you imagine how Beautiful their Tulips must be. At least I think so. Maybe their season is over since ours is just beginning here in the POCONOS. Normally I do not get the advantage of seeing Tulips in my POCONO GARDEN due to the deer however, SHHHH, Don't tell them, I actually got a few tulips this year. As soon as they came up I put some fencing around them. If flowers and gardens are not for you perhaps there are some other fun items you would like to (0 comments)

Squeezing Oranges Instead of Lemons - 04/26/11 11:57 AM
Squeezing Oranges Instead of Lemons repost below. A good philosophy and a wonderful way to put it. So much of our business comes from referrals, this statement makes a unique way of looking at it. Via Colorado Springs Realtor ® - Cherise Selley (Selley Group Real Estate, LLC):
When you think of having resiliency about real estate, what mental picture comes to mind? For me this morning (feeling fortunate to watch the sunrise after a 5K), I thought of oranges instead of lemons – probably because I grew up in Florida. Like squeezing oranges for the tastiest juice, it’s a great (0 comments)

Make Me Look Good from Sheldon. Very well said, wish I had said it. HAHA. It does reaffirm how we feel and think when it comes to receiving or giving referrals. The same old adage comes into play. Do to others as you would have them do unto you. So true. Thanks Sheldon! Via Sheldon Neal ~ That British Agent ~ Bergen County NJ (Bergen County, NJ - RE/MAX Real Estate Limited):

POCONO REAL ESTATE - YOUR POCONO GARDEN - COULDNT RESIST THIS HEADLINE! - 04/21/11 02:55 PM
Well as most of you know I do blog a little bit here and there about gardening, curb appeal, etc. In your Pocono Garden I have tried to offer a tip or two for a small garden, easy ways to plant a garden in a small space, the pleasures of fresh veggies, etc BUT I just read this headline I have to share. "SKIP THE PRACTICAL - GO FOR THE PRETTY" from the National Home Gardening Club blog. Here I am preaching practical, useful stuff and then they come along and tell me just the opposite. Struck me as funny so (0 comments)
POCONO REAL ESTATE - IF YOU'VE GOT IT - FLAUNT IT! - 04/20/11 09:22 PM
POCONO REAL ESTATE - IF YOU'VE GOT IT - FLAUNT IT! How many times do you go searching through homes only to find they all look alike, especially during these time of high inventory. If you've got something different, something special to offer, in the sale of your home - FLAUNT IT! Have your agent use a great photo of it as one of your first photos. Describe it in the remarks with "mouth watering appeal." Imagine how many couple would look twice or more at this house if they flaunted their hot tub. Show a happy couple sitting in the (0 comments)

POCONO REAL ESTATE - YOUR OWN GARDEN FOR HEALTH, WEALTH, AND YOU! Do you have your own garden yet? It is time you considered it if you do not. (photo courtesy wikimedia) No it does not have to take up a lot of space, sure a 12 x 12 garden would yield lots of great veggies to munch on but who has time to take care of a garden that size. Even a 4 x 4 can be time consuming if you do not do some preventive maintenance however, if you read the attached article you can try tiered gardening to help (0 comments)
Local California Legislator Wants To Bill Banks For Foreclosures: - 04/19/11 08:42 AM
Bill the Banks for Foreclosures? Interesting idea. Sounds like a "PASS IT ON" idea worth considering by all states. Re-blog of post from Lorraine and Loretta Via Lorraine or Loretta Kratz-Certified Negotiation Consultants (Crescent Moon Realty, Inc. & Land N Sea Auctions.): A Democratic legislator from San Fernando Valley (which is north of San Diego, California approximately 103 Miles). Wants banks to pay $20,000 for each future foreclosure in California a proposal that could generate $10 billion for the state in the next two years.

POCONOS REAL ESTATE - THE BEAUTY OF THE POCONOS CREEKS - 04/14/11 04:17 PM
Forest Hill Run In Paradise Township Swiftwater Creek in Paradise Township Paradise Creek THE BEAUTY OF THE POCONOS CREEKS. The POCONO weather was so gorgeous today I just had to get out and see some of it. One of the advantages of getting plenty of rain is the sounds of the creeks, and the flow of the creeks after a storm. I visited 3 creeks today and they were all just beautiful. As one who greatly enjoys the sounds of water, the creeks did not disppoint me. If you are visiting the POCONOS in the near future I (0 comments)

POCONO REAL ESTATE - COME HAVE FUN IN THE POCONOS THIS WEEKEND! - 04/01/11 02:01 PM
The snowflakes were HUGE this morning but don't let that scare you away from THE POCONOS THIS WEEKEND. They were beautiful snowflakes too! Around the size of a half dollar, HUGE. And boy were they coming down, for quite awhile today. Luckily for those of us who are ready for spring, they did not stick to the roads, just a little bit to the ground, at least in my area. The day is brightening here in THE POCONOS, becoming a nice Friday afternoon. Leading into a wonderful weekend to visit the Poconos. The weather forecast is for partly sunny skies (2 comments)
