love: This might make you cry a little... - 01/31/12 10:29 AM

A recent headline of the San Francisco Chronicle was about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spiderweb of crab traps and line weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, tail, torso and a line tugging in her mouth.A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way … (6 comments)

Lily a 6 year old Great Dane lost her eyesight due to a rare disease. She became disheartened until she met Madison. They have been together for 5 years.
 Madison guides Lily by the leash and touches her to make sure she doesn't stumble over anything. The picture reveals how dependent and loving they are to each other. THERE'S ALWAYS A LESSON OF LOVE TO LEARN FROM ALL ANIMALS ♥
A lesson of true love and loyalty that sees no boundaries.

love: Caruso's Soft Side.... - 09/22/11 06:39 AM

I came across this story the other day while surfing the web. I found it very touching and I thought it was something everyone should read. Unfortunately the author is unknown but I feel it has a great message that everyone can take something from.  
When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.
Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what … (2 comments)

love: Legend of Hummingbirds is Meaningful - 02/17/10 04:46 PM

Legendary stories are fun to read.  Perhaps not all are completely factual, but they are still entertaining.
There is one about the Hummingbird that I'll share with you...
Legend says that Hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration.  The Hummingbird's delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is lifes's sweetest creation.
Powerful legend.
And thank you for making me Your Orange County Real Estate Connection.

love: Celebrate this Kennedys Death? - 08/30/09 11:43 AM

I don't care how young or old you are, we all "grew up" and "lived with" the Kennedy family.  They are really the most prominent political family in American history.  I still get a sick feeling in my stomach when I think of the tragic day John F. was slain in 1963...and Bobby a short time after.
The Kennedy family has suffered more than anyone could imagine in experiencing life's tragedies...from assassinations to accidents and accidental deaths this family who seemingly had everything also had the strength and perseverance to pull together and support each other in an unending stream of … (1 comments)

love: Orange County Beach Homes / Where is the Message in Fathers Day? - 06/21/09 07:00 AM

Today at church, there was a special Blessing for all the Dads as they were asked to stand and be acknowledged.  An apparent understanding of the great responsibilities Dads possess.
Where does a Dad go to look for the strength and guidance so as to teach and guide his children?
I found a quote that perhaps distinguishes a Dads responsibility...tell me what you think.
"A Father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way" - George Webster Douglas

If you're like me, you've already visited Google's home page over six times today.

As Google has been known to do in the past, they've changed their logo to a cute, celebratory Valentine's Day color of red and included an "xo" in the title.
What some folks do not know (perhaps they've been living under a rock), is that if you click on the logo, links related to the logo's topic (for today, V-Day) will appear.
Some noteworthy links included:
"Five Geeky Marriage Proposals That Worked"
"The definition of Valentine's Day (per Wikipedia)"
