calimesa real estate: History of the Easter Bunny in the USA - 03/27/16 02:47 AM
History of the Easter Bunny in the USA
 
The first mention of the 'Easter Bunny' tradition is traced back to the 1700's when German immigrants settled in Pennsylvania Dutch communities and celebrated "Osterhaus". This was where the children made nests and the Easter Hare could lay colored eggs in them. The idea was like Santa Claus where good children would receive colored eggs and later the tradition turned to candy and gifts.
The colored eggs were made by dying the eggs with flowers. Dying the eggs green was a reflection that the spring was coming. Some communities dyed their eggs red which was more of … (10 comments)

What I Am Grateful For This Holiday Season
During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays I am always reminded of many things I am grateful for and how these 5 items impact my life and career in a positive way. 
1. My Love of God- I was raised in a Christian home and feel it was probably the best gift my parents passed on to me. I still attend church, pray and spread the word. Of course #2 is just below #1.
2. My Parents- I grew up in a wonderful home in a small city of Riverside. My father was a pilot in the Air Force … (12 comments)

A New Way to Sell Real Estate by Using Cats & Dogs Videos
We are always trying to think out of the box to stand out from others or to attract potential buyers for our listings. 
This morning I saw where a real estate team had prepared two videos and posted to attract buyers. I believe this is very cute and these videos may go viral and hopefully get their properties sold quickly. One video was done with kittens they borrowed from a local shelter. The second one was done with a corgy dog who played a Realtor which I have included below.

Do You Remember Your First?
Your First Listing or Sale
Many years ago when I started selling real estate, I knocked on a door that had a FBSO sign on the front porch. During my 2 week training, the company had suggested door knocking but I had dismissed this idea since I hate people knocking on my door.
Well, to make a long story short, the very nice couple called me 1 day later and said "Please bring the contracts over as we are ready to have you list our home". This of course was music to my ears! I sold it within 25 … (8 comments)

Happy Flag Day and Long May She Waive
Today is National Flag Day as it was created by a proclamation in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson. In 1949, it was established by an Act of Congress. Strangely enough, is not a national holiday

Mother's Day Should Be Celebrated Every Day of the Year
Mother's Day is celebrated in the United States on the Second Sunday of May yearly. This year it was celebrated on May 10th, 2015 so most were buying flowers, gifts and taking their mother's out for a nice dinner to celebrate her day.
 
 
I personally think we should celebrate our mothers every day. We wouldn't be here if she hadn't given birth, protected and nourished us as babies and toddlers. And who made our lunches every morning to take to school in our lunchboxes, who cooked dinner every night and who yelled at us … (2 comments)
