I didn't know what to expect as I dropped by The EditWorks earlier today.  Josh Loory is the owner/proprietor of the company, and he's a member of the BNI networking group that I'm in.  From listening to his "Sales Manager Minutes" over the past month or so, I had some idea of what he did- and I was glad to finally learn more about his business.

Taste of Altamonte 2011...is it dinner time?...
Yes, it's time for The Taste of Altamonte once again. This is a good event that the Altamonte Springs Rotary Club puts on. It affords local food vendors (as well as some of the national franchise-type restaurants) the chance to give back to our local community- and gives all of us the chance to get some good food and have a good time!

This was a struggle... but I've made it to the end of the Localism Challenge.
I've written about restaurants, written about folks facing challenges tougher than many will ever know, and I've written about opportunities and events where folks may give back to their communities and help their fellow man.
But today?  This last post celebrates something a bit different- as Head Coach Nick Saban is just up the road and getting my 13-time National Champion … (0 comments)

Localism Challenge, Day #28:  Big Frog® Custom T-Shirts & More
Our company had a team-building event yesterday.  We left work in the middle of the day (shut the place down from 11-2)- and spent time at a place called Olde Towne in the nearby Kissimmee area.
A big part of out exercise involved team T-Shirts with funky names on them- and that's where Big Frog® Custom T-Shirts & More came into the equation.  We needed shirts with our company logo on the front- and names like "ANITA NEWMAN" and "WHOSGOT PROBLEMS". 
We needed shirts and needed them done quickly- as we … (3 comments)

Localism Challenge, Day #27: Homes For Our Troops
We can't ever do enough for our troops- period. Whether American soldier, sailor, airman or Marine, the young men and women serving, fighting- and sometimes dying- for us is the best and bravest the world has ever seen. Repeated, the folks our president sends into harm's way every day are the best to ever trod Earth's soil.
Seldom is the time, though, when these young men and women return home unchanged by their travels. Some bear mental scars that don't form scabs and never show clear indications of healing, while some bear outward signs of … (4 comments)

What to use for my Localism Challenge post today?  Hmmm... it's my birthday- so I'm going with 2 things:  one being places I feel are very important to America, the other being a product offered by one.
I'll begin with the family farm, because the family farm is important.  I remember going to the local stores when I was younger- and buying produce from families nearby- no big fancy set-ups like today.

Use this...don't use this. Use this.. I've gone back and forth for most of the day over whether to go wth this as the subject of this localism post. Arguments against doing so...It's a news story I'm commenting on and some may feel it's a lay-up. It's not appropriate for me to use someone's death as part of some deal that will help me get some crazy ActiveRain points if I make I one more week.
Arguments for using this item (the arguments that won) follow...

Nothing beats a good chicken race. Except a great chicken race, that is.
And a great chicken race is what you'll find in the Oviedo Kiwanis Charity Chicken Race.
The Kiwanis Club of Oviedo-Winter Springs' fourth annual Charity Chicken Race, which will be held this Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Oviedo Gym and Aquatics Center.
The event, made possible by the local chapter of global volunteer organization Kiwanis International, will last roughly three hours and will feature several competitions for children of all ages, including the traditional chicken parade.

A recent column from the Orlando Sentinel's Mary Shanklin points out some encouraging signs for our local real estate market here in Orlando.  Schools are open- and Economics 101 is in session:  inventory is shrinking and prices are rising.
When the median sales price in July exceeded the previous year's median by 6 percent, it was the first time in four years that the local housing market had managed a year-over-year gain … (2 comments)

Localism Challenge, Day #19:  2011 Orangewood Community Family Fun Day It's hard to believe it's time for Orangewood's Community Family Fun Day again...
Last school year flew by, as did the one before and the one before- summer's done and school's rockin' and rollin'
Orangewood's Community Family Fun Day is great in a number of ways:
- It's fun
- It raises money for the school, which means less money in direct payments from parents.  When a quality Christian education is costing you an easy $10,000/year these days, every little bit helps.
- It provides service opportunities for students that gain … (2 comments)

The following is some information about an upcoming conference at my church here in the Orlando area (Aloma is actually in Winter Park).  It's an event I won't be attending, though- for the W.O.W. (Women of Worth) Conference is for the ladies.
Folks may read this post and say "Dang.  He seems kind of 'churchy'"- and that's fine.  Today's Sunday, and I didn't leave church that long ago- so it's cool to still be "churchy".  And if some don't like that...too bad.

Localism Challenge, Day #16: Osceola County, Florida's declining inventory
Osceola County is one of the 6 counties that comprise the Orlando/I-4 corridor.  Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Polk, Lake and closest to Orlando, then Volusia a bit towards Daytona where I've actually managed a property as well.  Some folks might even add in Brevard County to the East as a 7th county they service.
Osceola has had a huge number of empty properties that have been nothing but blights on their community- with tons of bank-owned places sitting with knee-high grass and pools some funky shade of brown that Crayola doesn't even make.

Stress is a tough thing.  It's gnaws at you and gnaws at you- and if you don't address it properly, stress kills.
Though I may show a hint of partiality towards one of our armed services...I also have family members that have served in the Air Force, Army and Marine Corps.  Stress is a common thread that runs between members of all services- and a thread that reaches every member of their families as well.
From time to time, the Orlando … (0 comments)

The graph that keep sticking out in folks' minds here is the one showing our inventory going nowhere but down- and at a rapid clip to boot.
10,000 on the market today vs. roughly 16,000 at this time last year?  That's one heck of a drop rate- and one that's gonna be tough to sustain.
It's just my humble opinion, but I think it might be time to start thinking about the shadows once again.  The Boogeyman might not exist, they … (2 comments)

I don't know why these events are being held on the same weekend- I really don't.  I'd like to think that this was by strange coincidence or due to there being no real alternative weekend at the places, etc.- there are precious little of these large-scale Christian events- and forcing folks to choose between them is somewhat unfair.

Localism Challenge, Day #5 (UPDATED 9/9/11):  Delintz Dryer Vent Cleaning Service- Serving the Greater Orlando Area, 407-522-1666Yes, this is a big picture...but I hope it goes a long way towards increasing awareness of this big problem. By the way- this is a photo I took myself. A tenant of mine left a property like this, and it's easy to see the problem. This vent came loose a while back and was never re-attached- so all of the lint went...well, you can see where it went.
Now, imagine taking a match to it....
