Vernal Falls a place of beauty turns dark, as family and witness watch. I hope sharing this will impact any reader who are “not able” to take advantage of the moment daily. People who are able to appreciate every day as it happens and whatever it brings, are luck and see the true gift of life! (IMO)
As reported: Just before the hikers fell in, Jake Bibee, 28, said he saw a man in his 40s leaning out over the waterfall, holding his 6-year-old daughter. "The little girl is crying and screaming," Bibee (2 comments)
A recent situation happened between two friends. Friend “A” needed a place to stay for the night due to domestic violence from her boyfriend, so being a great friend, friend “B” let her stay the night, which turned into a few days. After some stuff went missing friend B told friend A it was time to go. Friend A replied “you have to evict me to get me out”! This problem is very complex and has many different ways to handle this situation. The most hard core action, make a claim she’s a squatter. Remove her personal items, do (3 comments)
Shadowy cybercrime syndicates are high jacking desktop and lap top PCs. It’s been reported there are hundreds of millions of computers being taken over by these cybercrime organizations. Most likely if you have fallen victim, you are unaware of it and pressed into the internet world of round the clock spam and information grabbing. Is your computer is acting up? It may be some corrupted files or too many picture/videos, or you’ve fallen prey to hackers. Unfortunately it seems hackers are getting over on law enforcement and us, but better relations between law enforcement and the professional security community (7 comments)
What’s a great starting point? Sometimes a debate is the perfect way to learn. I always love having lunch with a certain friend that loves playing tennis and has been a Long Beach CA Realtor since the mid-60s. Our conversation started towards using the internet for leads vs. leads sourcing the old fashion way. The only point (80 % of the buyers are using the internet & I want to be where the buyers loom) which lead to the silence of hearing a fork drop, his long ponder and distinguished busted grin; was conceded. We both agree technology (4 comments)
Long Beach CA & the Queen Mary Aug 1936 The Queen Mary wins the Blue Ribbon for the fastest North Atlantic crossings from the French Line’s Normandie. On her final voyage she leaves Southhampton and in 1967 quietly becomes a sky line for LB. Long Beach bought her for 3.5 million dollars. The Queen gets her “4 year” nearly 100 million dollar renovation, (As reported in the long beach post) and opens as a tourist attraction. The “Queen” blending into the “sky line” and beaches “not producing” waves is “Long Beach”. A July 4th tradition, boating over and dropping anchor (0 comments)
Maybe some bad news for all people living off, “doom/gloom “ This is such a creative idea; http://www.azcentral.com/community/scottsdale/articles/2011/05/16/20110516housing-angels-helping-people-keep-their-homes.html I really hope this concept catches on. The concept is so simple it’s brilliant, (buy the persons home from the bank foreclosing at the discounted price than resale it back to the owner with fair financing that should be maintainable for the owners who almost lost their life dreams, their home!

Should it be shocking to see a 3yr old sitting down “quietly” using an iPad?
That’s right 3! You know, kids in pre-school. I was really impressed with this little boy; most kids at that age seem more on the baby side vs., little kid. I have to admit “if” I was a parent with a new born, I think I'm on the side of the fence wanting the best start; if there are preschools supplying ipad for learning purposes and it relates to being more advanced entering kindergarten; that the side I’m on. I want my kids (6 comments)
I want to blog a lifesaving event that happened in Seal Beach CA recently! A mother runs up to lifeguard Derek Wiebe-Bailey, Derek happened to be working his tower doing normal activities at the time of a mother’s biggest nightmare. In a life changing moment a mom is running franticly to Derek explaining her 1 year old baby is chocking, not breathing due to the babies airwaves obstructed, the baby swallowed an object. Derek in an instant was able to perform a lifesaving maneuver (back blows) and in seconds had the baby breathing. See life does (3 comments)
When pondering the option of selling or refinancing your home, it’s so important getting your home priced correctly. I just happened to be strolling in my neighborhood when a sign “For Sale By Owner” was just entering a really nice looking lawn. As most neighbors should I stopped to talk. I was able to ask how he determined his home value. Unfortunately his answer was sad but not shocking. Today so many people use the internet for Real Estate & so many are trusting the information is correct. This nice (2 comments)

Who’s the best! I just answered a question, the question hovers over information and its importance. Today we live in a world where information is everywhere, but where do you go when you want to seek help, information, and leads from a real estate website. I want/need information to be correct, or I can’t stay in business! How about you? How do you feel about RE websites today that claim to be real estate driven? Is it important to be a part of a RE website and if so, do you trust the website you use.

agent help: Protecting your valuables! - 07/05/11 03:03 PM
Piece of mind when renting a home Are you renting a house? One of the biggest errors a home renter makes! “Assuming they are covered by their land lords Insurance” or “Assuming your belongings can’t/aren’t worth insuring”! If you rent a home, please protect your valuables, you don’t want to find out after you suffered a misfortune. Between fire and water accidents, you might want to look into “having a piece of mind” when it comes to protecting your valuables!
A group that has hall passes to disparage at will, it’s dangerous! Of course we all have a reputation; it’s more about protecting it… I think we all understand the theory of action and reaction and the media today; of course we are accountable for all of our actions. “The problem” the wild west of our Internet and the lack of protection, and rights we have in it. Today a web-site can set up shop to do “Real Estate” but instead have an (2 comments)
Our brain is magical; believe it or not our brain has hardwired physiological responses. Dopamine when released fuels the brain’s recognition making an effective prediction, behavior reaction, or choice. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that, when released in superior amounts, creates flows to other areas of the brain producing a powerful pleasure response. The reward from the releasing of dopamine prompts the brain to in-vision future opportunities to repeat the action. How to make dopamine The way to reward our brain with dopamine is using building skills and adaptive responses. If there is no challenge/risk to what you (4 comments)
