WIDGET WORTH WATCHING! - 04/27/08 06:48 PM
I am finding that the phrase "necessity is the mother of invention" is holding true throughout the ages. Little by little I am learning to take advantage of the incredible information here on Active Rain. I have toyed with the idea of adding widgets to my sidebar for some time. I stormed over to my profile's edit bar and clicked. I knew nothing. I gave it a try with our company logo and well, I actually got the logo in there but what a mess it looked like! Yuk. I was continually annoyed at the mess on my sidebar till I (26 comments)
LEARN HOW TO LEARN...ANYTHING...ON ACTIVE RAIN... - 04/26/08 02:35 AM
Several of Deb's Buddies have been asking, "Deb, how did you do that?" Please keep in mind that Deb does not really know what Deb is doing. Deb simply knows that Active Rain is awesome! Active Rain is comprised of many of the most talented and brilliant "computer gurus" alive today! How does Deb know this you ask? Because up till a few measly months ago Deb didn't know the difference between Software and Hardware. Period. Not a clue. And, not much of an exaggeration. Active Rain taught Deb how to Copy and Paste. Really! That was a major feat! Today, she is (84 comments)
The Texas Real Estate Group was recently adopted by Marchel Peterson of Spring, Texas and Liz Carter of Katy/Houston. The group is now blooming like Texas Wildflowers! We are turning into a "Community" in the true sense of the word. Our first meeting in Bandera, Texas was recent and we had a wonderful time. We met, talked AR, ate, ate, and ate. My husband, Scott Brooks and I turned a 5 1/2 hour drive into an 8 hour drive home because of all the gorgeous wildflowers! I would point, say ooh, awe, and off the road he would go! I am pleased to share (54 comments)

So Iconic It's Almost Ironic! - 04/21/08 12:27 AM
Active Rain has announced a new way to personalize our blog sites. How wonderful is that? They are providing the platform that allows us to point and click our way to our own personalities. I have been scouring the new "looks" of the net and they are SO Iconic it's almost ironic! Of course they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words". I want to point out that many of my friends and yours are choosing their styles for their blog sites! These styles actually give a strong indication of the personality you are dealing with. I just love it. It's almost (33 comments)
Give her an inch and she'll take the tub... - 04/18/08 12:01 AM
Yes she will. I was thinking about this today. One of the first little houses we sold for an elderly gentlemen was just empty. Now, when I say empty, I mean it was lucky to have walls. He was a big hearted gentleman that just could no longer take care of his home. He was moving in with one of his daughters in the last days of his life. He knew that life on this earth was short but he wanted to sell the home and realize enough money to leave to his children. As he was moving, to the extent (36 comments)

Dancing with the Stars? Travolta was a long time ago,.,.,No Real Estate here... - 04/07/08 12:52 AM
I'm doing this post for my husband...and the rest of my reading public that hasn't seen Saturday Night Live. The seventies were a very different time. Our UNITED STATES was just working through the Viet Nam war and youth was looking for a reason to "be." We were trying to figure out where we fit in the grand scheme of the world. Life wasn't easy although we all tried to make it be that way. We held close to the meaning of the earth, nature, goodness and a world of euphoria that just didn't exist. One of our greatest attempts to be (34 comments)
HISTORIC DOWNTOWN HUNTSVILLE TEXAS... - 04/06/08 04:00 PM
What do you get when you combine a quaint little town amongst hills, tall trees, tailored streets and an Active square? Then you mix in a little...okay, a lot of History, President Sam Houston of the Republic of Texas, a few prisons, massive expanse of State Owned land with grazing horses, cattle, crops and black and white striped workers herded by Prison Guards on horses? Then add up to 17,000 youth at any given time walking Sam Houston State Universities beautiful campus, winning football games, featuring Arts and Academics and is one of the fasted growing schools in Texas? You get (27 comments)

My Real Estate Hubby chuckle... - 04/03/08 09:33 PM
My Real Estate, Car Dealing, Hubby! This is just a quickie about my hubby. He is so funny and fun. Scott told me about his first day at the car lot (when he was very, very young) and I laughed and laughed. My hubby was pure D hippie. Long hair, no shoes, and the occasional job. Early in his working career he took a job selling new cars at a large dealership. It was his "part time bar-tending job" that kept him awake till 2:30 in the morning and he still managed to show up at the dealership by 8:00 am, (39 comments)
