Celebrate Chinese New Year from January 31st-Feb 14th 2014
Celebrate Chinese New Year 
 

Did you know this Chinese New Year 2014 is the 'Year of the 'Horse'. I was fascinated while reading the history. I had always known there was 12 months and 12 different animals. So while reading, I found out why. Legend has it that Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on the Chinese New Year. 12 animals showed up so he named one for each month. Depending on what year you are born, you take on certain traits and personalities. The 12 animals are the … (4 comments)

Be Careful What you Tweet or You May Get a Defamation Suit
For the past few years, social media has become more and more popular and shocking and outlandish statements are said.  People are posting pictures and sometimes these are taken out of context plus it might not even be the same person. It seems like no one holds back on social media but the new trend might be for tweeters to find themselves at the other end of a defamation lawsuit.
This week, a defamation case went to trial brought by Musician … (50 comments)

I attend real estate seminars, webinars and just went to Women's Council of Realtors where I learned a lot of new technical information to do power point presentations.

What Not to Do if Sellers Really Want to Sell Their Home
Typically when the Realtor meet the homeowners for the first time, they have already cleaned up inside and out as it is their intention for the home to look perfect and sell for the very best price. Realtors may have some suggestions to make the home even look more appealing to buyers. But of course there are always homeowners who feel they know what is best and disregard any suggestions by the agent.
Here is a list of items I have come across that delayed the selling of the homes I listed.

Have You Heard of Weltanschauung?

What in the world is Weltanschauung? Weltanschauung is pronounced “welt·an·schau·ung”.

Additionally, it refers to the framework of ideas and beliefs through which an individual, group or culture interprets the world and interacts with it.

Sunrise in Calimesa...Breathtaking

When I go outside at sunrise, I am so in awe at the beautiful sunrises where I live. I rarely have any cloulds or fog. The sky is just bright and beautiful and the birds are waking up and I can hear them chirping and starting to fly around the fruit trees in front of my yard.

Top 10 Turnaround Cities in the US

Most of the cities above are in California and on the western part of the US except for Detroit, Michigan. These areas were hit really hard with foreclosures so they have recovered quickly which is really good news. I think the US is in the midst of a recovery of the housing market.
