I'm Not Sure I Can Make That Kind of Commitment on the 1st Date, or even the 2nd, 3rd or 4th - 04/30/11 01:57 AM
I'm Not Sure I Can Make That Kind of Commitment on the 1st Date, or even the 2nd, 3rd or 4th How freaked out would you be if you went out on a "date" for the first time with someone, let's say it was even a blind date at that, and that person was already demanding you to have exclusive loyalty to only them and already wanting a monogamous relationship established? I don't know about anyone else but I would run for the hills as quick as possible. Making that kind of commitment to someone you hardly know is scary and (20 comments)
I love this time of year.. Not only is the weather nice and sunny but this has to be one of the most colorful seasons, of course aside from fall. Everyday I take my little American Eskimo named Snowy for our 3 mile walk and during this time of year it seems I see more flowers blooming.. I am not sure what kind of tree this is but I love the flowers on it. Hope everyone enjoys the pic. (22 comments)
Today I had lunch at the Corner Bakery at one of my favorite outdoor shopping malls in Orange County, The Irvine Spectrum. I met with one of the agents in my office and had a great lunch and conversation exchanging marketing ideas. This shopping mall as stated in prior blogs has alot of water fountains, and I love water fountains, this one as you can see is right next to the merry go round, there are three other fountains right next to it that are identical. Hope everyone else is having a great Wednesday. (11 comments)
I Had a QR Code Epiphany Today!!! There IS an Effective Use to Them!! - 04/19/11 02:54 AM
I Had a QR Code Epiphany Today!!! There IS an Effective Use to Them!! Each day QR codes are becoming bigger and bigger, and though you can scan a QR code with your Droid or Iphone, and it takes you to your website, that use is limiting, can be effective, but with all the zooming in zooming out finger scrolling on the pages, and battery draining (you smart user's know exactly what I am talking about) viewing a persons website, even viewing my website on my phone is annoying.. I even have an HTC EVO (big screen for a phone) and its (113 comments)
Today once I was in Irvine, I stopped at the Irvine Spectrum, which is one of my favorite outdoor shopping malls in Orange County. The Irvine Spectrum has various shops, dining, movie theater, and even an improv theater. Some people have fascinations with taking pictures of bridges, sculptures, etc. I would have to say my fascination is water fountains.. I will have to post more of the fountains that the Spectrum has.. This isn't even the coolest one. But I will on another day! Enjoy your weekend everyone. =) (8 comments)
One Year in the Rain..Look What I Have Accomplished.. - 04/13/11 04:50 PM
One Year in the Rain..Look What I Have Accomplished.. This month makes a year since I have joined Activerain. I know that once I first started I was very very hesitant about this site. I have never ever considered myself good at writing and nor will I ever make that claim. The thought of blogging in general didn't interest me at all! So getting started was a little slow, and I didn't know to much about Activerain at all. I started reading other people's blogs, getting acquainted with other professionals across the country and learning new and interesting techniques to our (39 comments)
Dear House: Consider This is My Resignation... - 04/13/11 12:01 PM
Dear House: Consider This is My Resignation.... I knew that once I was first introduced to you, you were going to be to much and a bit of a pain, but because of what you had to offer, like the granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, culd-a-sac, you were very attractive, and the quality of service that I offer, I would give you a shot in hopes that I could change you and bring you to reality, and help you find the right match. Now a few months have gone by, you have not changed, you have not taken my advice, (138 comments)
