Google+ Limits the Number of Friend Requests Daily
When I switched from my primary email address on gmail to the new one that Keller Williams set up for us, I started a new Google+ plus account. 
My older account has 1,669 friends in  my circle but the new one has 88. So I changed the settings and started building my numbers in my 'Circle of Friends".

Yesterday, I got this message box that read "You have exceeded the number of friend request for today. You can come back tomorrow and add more". I tried to do a screen shot … (16 comments)

ASICS LA Marathon - From the Stadium to the Sea
This morning I watched the ASICS LA Marathon on TV that started at Doger's Stadium and ended at Santa Monica. It was so exciting and remember the feeling when I used to go the night before and run the marathon myself. Those days are gone with my bad knees now I just walk instead and watch the marathon on TV instead.

This morning the winners were not so clear cut as usual as no one knew for sure until the end who would win. The "Elite Male" group was down from … (4 comments)

I Love Referrals....My Favorites!
I love Referrals and I can say much of my business has come from referral business. I think it is important to do a good job with your client in either selling it or helping them buy it so if they are pleased, they will tell their friends.
It is really great when the phone rings and someone tells me they want to list their home and a friend has referred me. Really.....that's great and who was your friend? I am sometimes caught off guard but I am always very excited and ready to schedule an … (8 comments)

Pelican Rescue from Arizona to Sea World in San Diego
In the late spring 8 brown pelicans were rescued in Arizona; 4 in Tuscon and 4 in Phoenix. The pelicans were taken to local wildlife habitat shelters and they were given nourishment and stabilized. The birds were then flown on a large passenger airplane to San Diego, CA where Sea World took them to their rescue center. The birds were in poor health, had severe burns on their webbed feet and were covered in lice. With a lot of TLC, the Sea World avian experts were able to return them … (4 comments)

google: A Friendly Flower at the Zoo..Looks Like a Fried Egg - 08/02/12 04:37 AM
Here are a few photos of this beautiful flower, Matilija Poppy, growing at the San Diego Zoo. This is a native California flower from Ojai, CA in Ventura County.

It is such a lovely flower when it is in full bloom but still just as pretty when the petals bend over and start dying off. The petals look like thin wrinkled crepe paper and have a gold center full of pollen for the bees and insects to enjoy. This flower is also known as the “Fried Egg Flower” as it looks like a sunny-side up egg.

google: GOOGLE celebrates Anniversary of the First Drive-In Theater - 06/06/12 02:22 AM

Today, June 6, 2012, Google has dedicated their home page to the anniversary of the Drive-In Theatre.
The drive-in theater was the creation of Richard M. Hollingshead Jr., from Camden NJ. In 1932, Hollingshead began testing his innovative idea of an outdoor theatre and on May 16, 1933, Hollingshead was given a patent for his invention.
Hollingshead's drive-in opened in New Jersey on June 6, 1933, on Admiral Wilson Boulevard and could accommodate up to 400 cars. He advertised his drive-in theater with the slogan, "The whole family is welcome, regardless of how noisy the children are”.The … (20 comments)

December’s Season of Sharing and Celebrations~ ©©©Senior Donation Tree at Wal-Mart©©©
While shopping early Saturday morning at the Wal-Mart in Redlands, CA., I spotted a cheerful looking tree as I came through the door and said hello to the greeter. (I love the greeters as they make you feel special) Anyway, I had to get a picture of the tree and what a great charity, to give to seniors who might not have much to open this year. A pair of slippers, a warm robe, a blanket throw, some toiletries, a book. The tree has names, sizes and suggestions. I was … (6 comments)

google: I am Grateful for Electricity - 11/18/11 02:56 PM
Last night SC Edison turned off our power from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. They had installed new meter a few weeks ago and apparently had to upgrade the transformers in the city. We had been notified that this would be occurring so we had flashlights and candles handy. The power went off at 10:40 p.m. and upset my dogs. I did not sleep well as I keep hearing generators running all night. Sound travels when everything is shut down. I was worried I would oversleep and had an appointment at 8:00 a.m.

I first became aware of Pat when my daughter left for law school. She took the clothes and shoes she wanted and left the rest for me to bag up and donate.
I had seen a flyer at a local store in Redlands for “Angel’s Closet” so I called to find out what it was all about. I impressed when Pat Williams called me back and told me about the program she runs.
Redlands East Valley High School (REV) in Mentone, CA. has given her 3 large classrooms at the school.  She gave me a tour of her shop. … (17 comments)

©Did You Know You Cannot Just Remove a Bird Nest?©
These bird nest photographs were taken in the Inland Empire in CA.
While looking up some info on removing bird nests I came across some interesting Federal laws. Did you know that you cannot just remove most bird nests? I didn't so I “Googled” Bird Nests and come up with some interesting reading.

The Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 prohibits the trapping, possession, or killing of most birds, their eggs and nests, without a permit.

 Many people do not know that the Migratory Bird Treaty Act makes … (18 comments)

"Folklore" or Science……Red Halo Around Full Moon?

Tonight I was outside trying to take some moon photos and much to my surprise the clouds were moving so fast and a red halo surrounded the moon which made it difficult to get clear shots. Later, the halo effect widened. So I researched this for an explanation and here is the Folklore interpretation; “And should the Moon wear a halo of red, a tempest is nigh”. English Translation: A storm is near..

Then I looked up the scientific interpretation and it said “Clouds moving in, cold front off shore, high winds … (25 comments)
