I have become OCD about SEO - 01/30/09 12:20 AM
For those of you who don't know what OCD is you can take this TEST and see of you are Obsessive Compulsive. I am not generally obsessive about anything. But lately SEO is constantly on my mind. Last October I began receiving several calls every week, from my website. I began blogging on Active Rain last August. I had more activity on my website and more closings the last quarter of the year. No coincidence, something I was doing really worked at getting my website higher in the rankings for the Community I am serving, Temecula, California. I am really wanting (17 comments)

Today, volunteers came together to help the Temecula Community Pantry. Even though we organized a little late we were successful in collecting a "truckload of food" for the Pantry. I am grateful for the volunteers who came together at a moments notice through our posting on the "Martin Luther King Day of Service", Website. I am also very grateful for the dozens of contributors who dropped off non-perishable food items for the Pantry. Special thanks to Connie Buzza and Kristina Karman who donated their time and artistic skills to create our signs. Here are the pictures from our "Day of Service", (12 comments)

Homless in America, (A new kind of Homlessness) - 01/11/09 03:25 PM
I was astonished yesterday........ To see a homeless woman as I was walking back to my car in the Albertson's Shopping Center, on the corner of Margarita Road in Temecula. This woman was not your average homeless woman, or the average person you would see holding a cardboard sign asking for money. This woman could have been my sister! As I crossed the street, my first inclination was to walk right by and pretend I did not see anything. But I could not do that, instead I approached her. Since she was looking into the eyes of the drivers pleading for help (10 comments)

(Beach Eye Candy) A walk on the Beach, My Favorite "Coastal", Restaurant in Carlsbad is only 45 miles from Temecula - 01/02/09 11:28 AM
My husband spent the week before Christmas in a very remote part of Nigeria, on the Continent of Africa, where he had an all expense paid trip to consult with their land development team organized by, Cityscape of Legos, Nigeria. (Beach Photo's Below) You say Africa and I say Diamonds. Of course I wanted only "Conflict Free" diamonds. However, there were no shopping malls or even any stores....no place to get the diamonds that I asked for. Just friendly indigenous locals. So, when my jet lagged husband returned from his 16 hour flight, I told him that I was so happy he was home that (18 comments)
