Bloggin in the Morning, Bloggin in the evening, Bloggin at suppertime. - 12/30/10 08:40 PM
\I have to sell real estate sometime. But I keep spending my time blogging. I am doing it all the time. I think about it when I drive, I think about it in my sleep, I think about it when I shouldn't be thinking about it. Who responded to my post? Why did they not think it was as great as I thought it was? Wow. I am overwhelmed. I have some 36,000 points, how will I ever reach 900,000? I spend part of my day figuring what to Blog, another part trying to figure out what to say, and the (4 comments)
$5.00 per gallon....what else is there to say? - 12/29/10 01:45 PM
Maybe a horse and buggy will be in our future. Cars eat corn(ethanol) Horses eat corn too. I bet horses won't use quite as much and we could figure out what to do with the biproducts.(phew) Our money buys us less and less. Less gas, food,clothing. Where are the trains? What happened to mass transit. Indianapolis does not have it. Half our busses run with 1 or 2 people in them. Personally I love the little golf cart we drive around our apartment complex.

Make A New Years Resolution- Take Control Of Your Own Life, Business and Property - 12/29/10 10:42 AM
I would love to salute Coach Katerina for all her help these past few months. I do not know which came first Realbird, Activerain or Coach Katerina. I have done expired listings since the 70s and I was not getting the response I wanted, so I thought taking a class from Coach Katerina might just give me the thing I needed to add a little spark to my own ideas. It worked. Soon after that, I took her SEO class, and then her SEO extreme class. I certainly admit to not understanding all that she taught, but I have it available (3 comments)
What have you gained by being an Activerain Member? - 12/24/10 02:25 PM
I will begin by telling you a few things that I have gained from my newfound friends: A wonderful feeling of belonging to a group that cares. Cutting edge knowledge that has been shared with me. A group to lose weight. Somewhere to share my feelings, both my public, and to you all privately. It is good to compare notes, vent, and ask questions. For those of us in the Real Estate industry, whether it be inspections, mortgages, title work, selling, listing, brokering, it is a great place. And there is so much more. I can't thank you all for sharing (3 comments)
DO OR DIE....BEING YOUR OWN BOSS-THE REST OF THE STORY - 12/22/10 09:50 AM
Last evening, my husband and I passed the Mexican restaurant on our way to the post office. Passing by prompted us to try another new restaurant. This time Italian. Again it was an old abandoned Pizza Hut building. We like supporting our local owners, more so than the chain restaurants. When we arrived at 5pm, the parking lot was empty, and we immediately thought it would be another struggling "boss". We were greatly surprised when we entered. Tables were prepared, tablecloths, plates, napkins, glasses and the works. The surrounding walls were colorful and trendy in typical Italian decor. We were greeted (2 comments)
DO OR DIE......BEING YOUR OWN BOSS - 12/22/10 09:30 AM
Why are so many of us driven to be our own boss? Is it the freedom that comes with the title? Is it the dream that just won't go away? Is it to make a lot of money? Only each boss knows his motivation. Do we realize that the 9-5, secure paycheck turns into a 12-20 and insecurity? No insurance? Everyday I drive by a newly occupied old Pizza Hut building. It has now become a Mexican restaurant. It has been open for maybe 2 or 3 months. BUT, as I drive by at lunch time, and dinner time, there are (4 comments)
Indiana Birds - 12/21/10 10:50 AM
I I wake each morning, with my cup of coffe and move to my desk and watch the birds, along with Blondie, Frady and Kitty. The show begins with every kind of bird here in central Indiana. We have several feeders and thistle socks that hang like ornaments in front of our windows. We so enjoy this display of cooperation among the birds. The only one that is not welcome is the "hawk". But it is only about survival, they all sense that here is here only for a meal. They do not want to be his breakfast. This wonderful community of birds (2 comments)
So I am on this learning expedition - 12/09/10 02:18 PM
QR codes-the coming thing. W H A T? So now my listings on Realbird have automaticQRcodes. I Can have my ownQRcode. I understand what they are, I understand how they work. But I cannot get my Android phone to read the QR codes. I am most certainly not going to print or buy stickers and publish QR codes if I do not what they say........ So I went to my local ATT store to find out what software to get so my Android will ReadQR codes. You see, i want to be on the cutting edge. It must be the coming (4 comments)
