It may take a lot of hard work, it may take a lot of learning, it may even take a lot of time and I may need some help doing it but I can do it. The trouble with most of us is that if we don't have the skills in our tool belt we have the mindset that if I don't know how to do it (2 comments)

I Remember When - 02/13/10 03:49 PM
I Remember When there was only one telephone in the house and it was in the hallway on shelf built into the wall and you if you were fortunate you only shared the line with one other party. It was called a two party line. You would have to pick up the phone and listen before you dialed to make sure no one else was already on the line. Sometimes the conversation would be so interesting that you couldn't resist taking a extra minute to listen in. It wasn't right but it happened. I also remember arguing over who was (9 comments)

Greenwood SC Realtor Tells A Real Fish Tale - 02/08/10 11:04 AM
Greenwood SC Realtor Tells A Real Fish Tale I write often about life with my dad because life with him was not your run of the mill childhood experiences. It was interesting to say the least. He was a little on the eclectic side. This particular story still makes me smile when I think about it years later. When he was a young boy my dad took up with some local Indians (I forget what tribe it was) out in Oklahoma and he was practically raised by them, my grandmother said they couldn't keep him at home. He always wanted to (3 comments)
Can Toyota Pull Their Face Out Of The Turf? - 02/07/10 09:02 AM
Can Toyota Pull Their Face Out Of The Turf? It looked pretty dismal with their two most valuable players Camry and Prius, on the bench. The team let the fans down taking their winning streak for granted resting on their past triumphs not adhering to the standards,it was their attention to detail and quality that created their success. It appears that some of the team got sloppy or maybe it was only one team member that spoiled the whole batch. Unlikely. Will they be able to win back their position? That is questionable. Much like a cheating spouse, once you've lost (8 comments)

Easy 15 Minutes To The Table Meal For Four - 02/03/10 10:44 PM
Easy 15 Minutes To The Table Meal For Four Like most Realtors I lead a very busy life and my schedule is well let's just say erratic. I try to cook at home most week nights and I have a rule that the meal can't take more than 30 minutes to prepare, I was a 30 minute cook long before Rachael Ray hit the scene, if I had know how much money I could have made cooking I might have pursued that instead of real estate. It is recession proof. BUt too late for that she already got the show (12 comments)
