I've always thought a praying mantis reminds me of the lead singer in Midnight Oil. You gotta admit there is a strong resemblance. However, I did not realize that a praying mantis is supposed to bring good luck. I had heard that dragonflies and hummingbirds can bring good luck or supposedly messa...

If you ask Gary Thomas in Key West, he will tell you he has the southernmost point in Florida but that is not true. It is the southernmost point in the continental U.S. but not in the United States. Nope, that honor belongs to the Big Island in Hawaii. Our houseguests, the exclusive buyer's agent...

The scuttlebutt at the morning coffee group in Kona is the Aloha Vista Bar and Grill changed management last year, which is why we are seeing a lot more advertising for it, I suppose. Greg, who used to be a former police officer, tends to show up at coffee on Wednesdays because his wife gets a ma...

Right now I am looking at the black sands of my laptop keyboard, LOL. I bought a clear case for my new MacBook Air, and it came with a vinyl keyboard layer. I just lay it over my keys and it protects them. When I need to clean it, I pull it off and wipe it down. It's like the coolest thing ever. ...

One of the nice things about being in an environment where tourists go is there are a lot of hotel activities everybody can attend. The Kona Kohala Chamber of Commerce sponsored an event at the Sheraton this weekend called the Hawaii Island Living and Design Expo. It was held both Saturday and Su...

Thirteen years doesn't seem like a long time, but I guess it does to a 13-year-old girl. And speaking of that, what a horrible age to be, 13. I would not wish that on any girl much less her parents. That's about the age when we should lock them up and not let them out until they turn 18. However,...

Every day that I am on vacation in Hawaii, I am grateful that I am not in the miserably cold weather in Sacramento. Especially more so when my sister sends me a photo of the back-breaking job she just went through in Minneapolis to shovel her front sidewalk. I thought of that yesterday when I met...

When I see people in sales professions working so hard to make a few sales that probably pay pittances, I can't help but wonder why they aren't in real estate. Maybe that's why, though. Because they are not confident enough in their own abilities to make it in a 100%-based commisson world. Maybe ...

I had planned originally to post this as a Wordless Wednesday post but then I figured out that even though it happened yesterday, posting it today doesn't count toward a Wordless Wednesday post. Not to mention, talking about the photograph is not exactly wordless, now, is it? I say no. Perhaps a ...

Every time I sell a home facing the freeway in Sacramento, I am amazed. It is difficult for me to wrap my head around the fact that buyers tend to prefer homes that are either newer or remodeled and don't seem to pay much mind to where they are located. Suppose it's because so many people go to w...
