Do you return phone calls? - 06/27/09 10:45 PM
Do you return phone calls? I do. I believe it is polite and also very beneficial to growing my business, developing and keeping good relationships. I ask this question because today I became very upset with a friend of mine that does not always return or answer phone calls. I think it is rude. Being my friend, I have overlooked it many times but today I held that person accountable. I told them, in case no one else had ever told them, how Rude it was. We may become better friends because of me saying what I did. If not, so (16 comments)

This is a serious problem and a few folks are beginning to understand that what they write on Active Rain, Facebook, Twitter or other social networking sites is open to the PUBLIC. Did you hear that? The PUBLIC may know your young child's name. They may have saved a photo of your precious little son or daughter. They may know where they go to school, what activities they are involved in, etc. Are you giving out information on the World Wide Web (18 comments)

Every cat lover and cat owner (or should I say anyone owned by their cat), will know how true the above saying is. I wonder do dog owners feel the same way about their pets? Or is it something about cats, and the special love between them and their owners, that make them so special. There really is a difference. A cat rarely gets in trouble for whatever mischief they commit. A cat is always beautiful, purrfect in every way. A cat eats whenever they choose, whatever they choose, and comes home whenever they choose. Dogs do (23 comments)

I am getting spoiled. Every evening I come home and take an hour long swim in the pool. It is so relaxing after fighting the real estate ups and downs all day long. To be able to just relax and listen to the water moving and swim and float away my troubles. My whole body and mind feels better when I finish and then it's dinner time and the rest of the evening goes so much better. We put this pool in last summer but did not get finished with it in time to really enjoy it so this summer (14 comments)
