A Christmas Letter from Jesus...A MUST READ! It will speak to all, regardless of your beliefs. - 12/24/08 08:26 AM
Christmas Letter from Jesus Dear Children, It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are removing my name from the season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't actually born during this time of the year, and that it was some of your predecessors who decided to celebrate my birthday on what was actually a time of pagan festival, although I do appreciate being remembered, anytime. How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most easily understood by those of you who have been blessed with children of your own. I really don't (0 comments)
I love my Flip Video Camera. A professional videographer I am not, but this was a lot of fun to do and I am hopeful it will be a blessing to you... notice there is not any snow like the rest of the country has. I'm happier watching the snow fall on TV than shoveling it.
Recently there have been some wonderful upgrades to the flip video program called flipshare. One of my favorites is the "Greeting Cards". It is so easy to send video greeting cards for holidays or birthdays or whatever! I am working at honing my skills as a videographer and using this program but it is so easy to use and has lots of options to explore.
Speaking of Greeting Cards I'll share about that first. In the screen shot below along the bottom there's (29 comments)

What does Rice Pudding Mean To You? That really depends where you're from! - 12/18/08 08:52 PM
Traveling around this great country of ours has always been one of my favorite things to do. Not the actual traveling but the sites and experiences along the way. Growing up in an Italian family (mom's side) I was exposed to Italian foods and ways of life, huggy kissy folks and hot tempers, Lasagna, spaghetti & meatballs and some great pastries, canoli's, pignoli cookies being my favorite. My Dad was from Norwegian decent and his mom passed away when he was 2 years old so we never really got the flavor of their diet and manner of life. We learned a (12 comments)
"As Is" Contracts...What Happens To Your Escrow? - 12/14/08 01:13 PM
Every state has it's own rules, actually various areas in a particular state can handle things differently according to their contracts. Knowing your rights and responsibilities is vital! The story's below! I've practiced real estate in NY and now in Florida...the process is very different in both states! Mainly the difference is that in NY the offer is written and then goes to the seller's attorney who writes a contract, normally within 2 weeks. During that time period the buyer will have a home inspection and make a final decision based on the results. There usually is no escrow turned over (40 comments)

Escape the cold and winter snow. Bring a light coat or sweater and come on down buy a home in a 55 + Adult Community for Under $100,000 (of course that is if you are 55+). There are plenty of homes to choose from and plenty of communities too! I venture to say "You'll like Ocala enough to call it Home!"

Remembering Those Who Gave Their Lives For Our Freedom!
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early lightWhat so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,Where the foe's haughty host in dread (3 comments)
