This happened in a small town I was visiting today. The smaller black car drove in so fast that it completely picked-up the truck and parked underneath it!
Sometimes we want to be in first place so fast that we can cause ourselves a little damage. Remember we all have to play in the same sandbox so be nice to your fellow Realtors®.

Happy Father’s Day to All Fathers! - 06/16/12 07:30 PM
Happy Father’s Day to All Fathers! Here’s hoping that all fathers have a great day tomorrow. I also hope that all our active military men also get some time to visit with their families on line. It is wonderful to have a father in a child’s life. I have many fond memories of playing hide and seek with my dad. Sometimes we would run right past him and not even see him! We had many great times crabbing in Galveston bay, visiting parks running like wild heathens through the bushes and ditches and having a great time. I have a father (6 comments)
You Can Now Talk to a Realtor® in Wal-Mart! - 06/13/12 06:40 PM
Today I received an e-mail that you can now talk to a Realtor® in Wal-Mart. How crazy is that? Will those services be like the tax guys that come in during tax season? I always feel sorry for them. They have a little isle office at the end of one of the cashier’s check out line. This office has the width of a single chair, and as long as a fold out table. The email boosted thousands of potential clients daily; with 24/7 corporate support. Well I guess they would have thousands of potential clients as (13 comments)
One Day In This Realtors Life - 06/12/12 08:56 PM
It has been a long day. Last night I composed a letter to accompany my magnetic note pads that I plan to send out to the newest subdivision I am farming. This morning I printed out hundreds of letters and printed out all the address labels. I was sticking them on the envelopes when I realized I didn’t have enough envelopes to complete the project. I would have to go to the dreaded Super Wal-Mart. My positive thoughts were that there would not be many people there, and I was totally wrong. I managed to go in and out in (18 comments)
The City of Friendswood has many established and new construction residential subdivisions to choose from, if you are moving here. One of the better established subdivisions, in my opinion, is Windsor Estates.
Homes up for sale in this neighborhood are few. The subdivision has a scenic walking trail and a lovely reflection pond.
West of this subdivision and within walking distance is Friendswood Sports Park, 27 acres for all you baseball and soccer enthusiasts. The golfer in the family can enjoy Championship Golf Center driving range, which is also located to (5 comments)
If you haven’t heard by now, it is time to go change your password on LinkedIn. As reported by LinkedIn the passwords were compromised by hackers. LinkedIn has notified the uses that actually were hacked by email. So if you haven’t received an email you are most likely okay.
This is a wake up call to go change your passwords. Be sure to add symbols, some capitalized letters and numbers.
We are told to never use the same password on more than one website. I am going to have a really hard time with that one! (11 comments)

PC OR MAC ? - 06/04/12 05:42 PM
I have thinking about buying a MAC computer. But I have heard that they don’t work too well with HAR and AR. So I am wondering how many of you Rainer’s have a MAC. Maybe you can give me some ideas if it will work for me. Or, at least let me know what you did to overcome the programs that MAC is not compatible with. What are those programs that just don’t work with a MAC? So guys please leave a comment and let me know. Thank you in advance for being so helpful to me and fellow Rainer’s. (13 comments)
