don rogers realtor: I am in Control Day......... - 03/29/11 09:52 PM
I am in Control Day.........This day will always be on March 30th.  Why?On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan was wounded in an assassination attempt.  Lots of confusion prevailed.  In the White House, then Secretary of State Alexander Haig was taken a little out of context when he said "I am in control here".   Instead of focusing upon the entire statement, people and the press focused upon these few words.  Political uproar eventually led to his resignation.  The political junkies in the room may not remember the day but they will remember the statement by the Secretary of State.On that day, … (20 comments)

don rogers realtor: This too Shall Pass - 03/26/11 02:18 PM
This too Shall PassIsn’t it just like Mother Nature to spoil the best laid plans of mice and men? You make your plans never paying attention to the weather prognosticators.  Why? Could it be because they are only right about 40% of the time?  Or could it be because you are hoping that this time they are wrong?  Either way you may lose.Today happened to be one of those days, everything was going just the opposite of the weather forecast.  I was thinking that all is well in whoville.  When much to my surprise, it turns out the prognosticators turned out … (20 comments)
