Meet Cyrus, the Wonder Dog!!! - 03/21/09 08:16 PM
My daughter, Laura, has always been a softie when it comes to animals--a trait I am happy to say we share. Six years ago, she adopted a kitten from a shelter, and she and Boykins have shared a happy home. Boyfriend, Steve, just purchased his first house, and together they decided it was time to adopt a dog. Steve, who is addicted to Craigslist, started the search there. He found an ad from a rescue group that was looking for a home for a very special dog, and he forwarded it to Laura, who forwarded it to me. Here is Cyrus--he has quite a (15 comments)
Am I losing business...because my jeans are too tight? - 03/18/09 12:37 PM
Perhaps this has happened to you.You check your voice-mail, and there is a message from an agent or homeowner interested in hiring you to stage a property.

We all know what a home wrecker is, right? Someone who comes into the picture and breaks up a relationship? Well, last week, I did exactly that!
I was called in for a consultation by an agent I have worked with only once. The first home had been on the market for months. It sold two weeks after I made some changes. He really believes in what we do, he just can't seem to remember what it's called. He asked if I could come "showcase" the home, and then introduced me to the seller as the "Feng Shui lady".

Please notice the term "new", used to describe our current economy, instead of what you normally hear. I use the term "new" to mean different from the former or the old (thank you thefreedictionary.com) There will be NO negative words in this post! This is an inspiring, uplifting and altogether nauseatingly POSITIVE post. "Elaine, what have you been drinking?" you might ask. I have just decided that all I can control is my attitude. So, if you enjoy wallowing in depression and self-pity, STOP READING HERE! OK, to better explain where I'm going with this--TIME FOR AN ANALOGY! Let's say (86 comments)
