michelle carr crowe: January 15 is National Hat Day- Show Off Your Sartorial Style Today - 01/14/17 10:42 AM
 
 
National Hat Day is always on January 15th and is a day meant for people to enjoy a hat of their choice and style. Isn't it great that hats come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles? There's one to fit every size head and personality!
Not only are they fun, some times hats are used to make a statement, or to promote a cause or a product.  Oh yeah... hats have logical uses, too. Some hats (aka helmets), offer safety protection. Some hats keep your head warm, or the sun out of your eyes....how boring.

Second Family Dinner of 2017-Chinese Food and La La Land Movie Night
by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Tonight was the second family dinner of 2017-attendees were me, my husband, and both of our adult children, Marlene and Mo.
Three of us met for Chinese Food beforehand, and then the fourth met us at AMC 14 Theater Saratoga. Together the four of us enjoyed the stunningly lovely and heart-tugging award-winning movie, "La La Land" starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. See the official "La La Land" movie trailer here.

January 12 is National Pharmacists Day
by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
 
National Pharmacist Day honors pharmacists by recognizing their important role in medical care and is always celebrated on January 12th. A Pharmacist must be knowledgeable of the chemistry of all medicines. They can inform you of a drugs' side effects, and all aspects of prescription medicine. 
In fact, did you know that pharmacists must complete four years of medical school?

See answer below.
Very importantly, pharmacists understand and recognize the potential … (3 comments)

Naughty Fun-January 11 is Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day
by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
With all of the rain and flood warnings in Santa Clara County it's only appropriate to celebrate Naughty Fun-January 11 is Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day.
Always celebrated on January 11, with eCards to prove it, the originator of this day remains anonymous. "Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day" was probably created by a child (or child at heart) who just enjoys jumping into and splashing around in puddles.
Silicon Valley doesn't get too many rainy days, so expect … (5 comments)

January is National Radon Action Month, What Do You Know About Radon?
by San Jose Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Did you know that January is National Radon Action Month?  Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas formed when uranium decays in the soil. Uranium is indigenous in geological formations in San Jose and Silicon Valley. While rarely tested for here, radon is called the "silent killer" because you can't see it, smell it, feel it, etc.
After smoking, radon is one of the major causes of lung cancer, causing over 21,000 deaths each year.
Here are a few ways to quickly … (4 comments)

Bubble Bath Day is January 8, Enjoy a Long Relaxing Soak in the Tub
by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Who doesn't enjoy a relaxing bubble bath?
Today readers have a good excuse for taking a bath-it's Bubble Bath Day on January 8.
As children, a bubble bath is playtime. As adults, a bubble bath is relaxation time. (Maybe playtime if it's in a tub for two.)
In Silicon Valley, to truly enjoy a bubble bath, be sure to leave the cell phone on silent and in another room. Maybe some candles, a glass of something refreshing and soothing music complete the scene.

Sometimes the Fastest Way to Salvation is to Stop Preaching to Them
by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
I am friends with many people whom I love and wish knew and accepted Jesus as their savior.
I find the truth of this statement to be stunning "Sometimes the Fastest Way to Salvation is to Stop Preaching to Them". I remember learning a song in my Methodist children's church, "They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love".
People who are not yet Christians will know us not by our words, but by our love.

1,430,000 Points Equals Lucky Number 8 for Feng Shui Eternal Good Luck
by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Every now and then a certain number on my ActiveRain points blog will pique my interest.
Today I  hit 1,430,000 points.
And while I don't ascribe to numerology, I do know that if you add 1 + 4 + 3 it equals 8.
I do know that in many of the Asian cultures I serve, eight is a lucky or auspicious number. I understand it symbolizes eternal good luck, which is definitely good feng shui.
So I actually withheld from commenting or posting for several hours so I … (8 comments)

I May Be Crazy, But Crazy is Better Than Stupid!
by San Jose REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Most folks who know me, know I'm a little crazy. I believe in extravagant love, corny jokes and big hugs. I'd rather err on the side of kindness than cleverness at someone's expense.
So while I may be crazy, I believe crazy is better than stupid or cruel!
Thank you for reading "I May Be Crazy, But Crazy is Better Than Stupid!"

We just returned from a whirlwind family Christmas trip to Disneyland. Disneyland is so inspiring to me for it's attention to detail. Here is one "Happy Holidayas" Snowman from inside of the "It's a Small World" ride at Disneyland. It could stand on it's own as a holiday image, yet there are layers and layers of detail inside.

$7100 Conforming Loan Increase of $417K to $424,100 Not Enough to Help
by San Jose REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Hailed as good news for 2017, conforming loan limits are set to increase by $7100, from $417,000 to $424,100.  
In Silicon Valley aka Santa Clara County, that is not enough to help. In facts it's less than a two percent increase.
At twenty percent down, it means a potential purchase price only increases from $521,250 to $530,000.
While any increase is a move in the right direction, this $7100 conforming loan limit increase just isn't enough to help my clients.

by San Jose REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Today I am thankful for FaceBook.
Yes, you read that right. Facebook.
While I prefer one on one face to face interactions with people, FaceBook has been a fun way to stay more connected with people I care about.
I love seeing my cousins, friends and colleagues photos of their pets, children and places they enjoy.
FaceBook even re-connected me with my best friend from elementary school.
So yes, today I am thankful for FaceBook. Hopefully this post will make Mark Zuckerburg's day.
