Many of my friends and acquaintances will tell you “You want the truth ask Peter.” Maybe that is one of my strong or weak points, only History will tell. I normally do not write a post about a rant, but when I do it is normally a doozy.
I received a call from one of the contractors I have had do some work in my house, given him some referrals, and helped promote his business. I could not believe the size of his brass ones after our conversation. He stated he needed (13 comments)
Bulldog Surfin USA (Off Topic) - 10/03/11 09:37 PM
This is a little off topic but I just had to share this. Being a pet owner, a crazy cat that likes to lick my son's head, they can do some amazing things. This should bring a smile and a good ending to your day. Enjoy Active Rain Community.
P.S. This is a picture of my other son...my wife states there is too much testosterone in her house.
So my wife was off today and I had to run and do some valuations for the bank. Have her ride with me? Why not. As we went down this particular street I realized I did this for the bank already, but I never really took notice of the area. Across the street from this particular property is a new construction development and they are asking $135,000 for the homes. “Are you kidding me?” my wife blurted out. I can understand her point, because would I or anyone else I am working with want to (2 comments)
A Little Thing For You Can Be a Big Thing For Someone Else - 10/02/11 03:13 PM
I figured I would share this. This was sent to me from one of my friends. What would you do in this type of situation? The water is cold, current is strong, and gale force winds on the pier. Is it just a dog or something that means the world to someone else? I have to give kudos to this young man for sacrificing his own well being to save this dog. I hope this will inspire you and bring a smile. Enjoy.
Facebook? What Is it all about? It is a social network site to be able to connect with friends, past clients, or certain groups you have an affinity with. Do you need to have 5000 friends? Would you invite all of those friends to your back-yard BBQ? I do not think so. When I first got started with Social Networking I thought it was great to add someone, anyone, to be my “friend.” According to Merriam-Webster: 1 a : one attached to another by affection or esteem b : acquaintance 2 a: (5 comments)
If you have been in the Cub or Boy Scouts, or have a child involved, the motto is “Do your best.” It is not about being the winner all the time, but being part of a team. The word “winning” I believe is so over-rated that is creates conflict compared to competition. Who am I competing with? Myself. How about you? As I have been blogging on Active Rain, I have noticed my point summary has been increasing, hopefully some have enjoyed what I write; and blogging helps me to center myself and my (8 comments)
I had received this email from a Broker in my area.
Don't Make the Same Mistake I Did!(A quick note for Lehigh Valley Brokers and Agents)
We were shocked recently by a fine from the state for the way a rental commission was paid, and I wanted to take a few minutes and share it with you because I believe many of you may be making the EXACT SAME MISTAKE that we did, and I don't want to see anyone else fined for this.
