What can I learn from ActiveRain? - 06/29/12 05:18 AM
For me it's a great source of information. I've learned so much in the past few years since I've signed up. For starters, I know it has improved my writing skills. English was never one of my strong points. Reading your posts, retaining what I like, making note of how you draw my interest into your subject, wanting to read more about your listing, or enjoying your pictures or videos, has helped me to promote my listings and put out subject matter that will also interest my future clients. Some of my personal favorites are: Debe Maxwell Fantastic videos, read her (9 comments)

Staten Island house for sale, South Shore, Coming to you this week, a beautiful 3 bedroom, Ranch style house on an over sized lot in the middle of this sleepy bedroom community of Eltingville. But it's near shopping, parks and transportation. Just a short walk to all. No need to get a second car. Walk to the Staten Island Rapid Transit, take the express train to the Staten Island Ferry in the AM and you can also take the express home again in the PM. I'll be posting pictures and other important information just as soon as I can, so if (1 comments)
Save those almost rotten bananas - 06/24/12 04:09 AM
Save those almost rotten bananas Don't throw them away, when you don't like the looks of them because they are over ripe, they are still good to eat. You may not want them in your morning cereal, but did you ever think of using them in your pancakes? Take them to the blender, add some milk to "puree" them then add the pancake mix, and egg.
add your shortening and put some in the frying pan
cook and serve. It's really pretty good. (10 comments)
For men only - 06/23/12 05:36 AM
For men only OK, maybe for a few ladies also (wonder women who work 3 jobs) who need to show houses and make dinner at the same time. This will take you about 10 minutes to prepare. Most of the work is in pealing the carrots and potatoes. On a hot day, with the AC running, we don't need to put the oven on. So, I have a one pot complete dinner recipe for you. Start with either a whole or cut up chicken. Next add plenty of carrots, potatoes, and maybe an onion. Add flour and water, about 1/2 cup (5 comments)
Are you using video to promote your brand? - 06/21/12 04:17 AM
Are you using video to promote your brand? Last year, July 4, 2011 I photographed our local 4th of July parade and to date received over 1,000 hits. It's also a great time for local politicians to be seen, and at the end of my video, I post my name and occupation and telephone number. Many times when talking to new clients, they mention some of my videos, not the parade, but my property promotions. So it is helpful, folks don't be shy, you are your own worse critic, I'll bet you can be really good, give it a try. Don't (5 comments)

Flag Day, June 14th My flag is always out, weather permitting, but June 14th is a special day for our flag. Will you have your flag out? I'm talking about the American flag, if you can trace your ancestry back to another country, great, you can fly that flag also, but remember the American flag is always higher then any other, and at night please put a light on it. God bless America! (3 comments)
