santa rosa beach: Emerald Coast of Realtors Awards Banquet - 01/09/09 09:44 AM
Today was the annual awards banquet for the Emerald Coast of Realtors. 

A good friend of mine Jean Floyd who is a Realtor for Keller Williams was named Realtor of the Year.  I was so happy for Jean.  What an honor.  Jean always does so much to give back.

Jean receives the highest honor and largest trophy.  We give away Dolphins and Sea Turtles.  The award is actually very heavy.  Also is last year's winner Harry Milsaps, and last year's President for ECAR Cliff Chaplin.

Other winners and friends of mine are in this photo.  I expect to … (3 comments)

santa rosa beach: Morning Walk - Windy, but the Dogs Loved it - 01/08/09 12:32 PM
I have a tech question.  How do I place the YouTube Video in my blog so that it does not appear as only a site address?
I need help.  Thanks.  This is me and dogs at the beach this morning.
I want to thank Jeff Turner for his help in allowing me to place this video into my post instead of the above link.

santa rosa beach: Friends Make Lunch Taste Better - 01/08/09 12:01 PM
Yesterday was my birthday and I wanted to share with you some terrific friends who treated me to lunch and wine.  I had a flight of wines at Chan's Wine World located in Destin.  Best in flight was a 2006 Rustenberg Brampton Cabernet Sauvignon.  Cassis, blackberries, cherries, cigar box and spice characteristics.  Yummy.
Here are good friends who know me well, Bobbie Celano from Trustmark Bank and Vicki Hoover from H&S Title and Escrow in Destin, FL.

4.  I have two dogs that I adore and no children.

5.)  I have a nephew who has two different colored eyes

santa rosa beach: New Year's Eve Resolution Fills my Local Gym - 01/03/09 02:00 AM
Okay, this is it!  Where did all of these people come from?  All of a sudden my local gym, the Grayton  Beach Fitness Center is packed!  I can hardly get around the equipment with so many people in there.  Who are these people anyway?  Okay, I get it.  These are the ones who committed to losing weight and getting in shape in 2009.
My guess is that the gym will be all mine again by Superbowl Sunday?  Any wagers?

santa rosa beach: Big Red Box Arrives in Santa Rosa Beach - 12/01/08 10:44 AM
I gased up today at my local Tom Thumb for just $1.64 a gallon.  As I was pumping up, I looked over at the BIG RED BOX.  Have you seen them yet?  It is a $1.00 DVD dispenser.  Can you believe it?  For just $1.00, I can now rent a movie for 24 hours.  What a great idea.  I guess these are showing up in other places too.  I wish I would have thought of this idea.  I know our local Blockbuster is already down to just one store in the heart of Destin and it would take me about 35 … (0 comments)

santa rosa beach: Biking on 30A - 11/24/08 12:38 AM
Yesterday I joined friends for a bike ride along Hwy. 30A.  What fun.  Highway 30A is a scenic 19 mile stretch of bike trails and old Florida atmosphere.  Height limits on Hwy. 30A are 50 feet and it is so nice not to have to worry about high density and high rises here.  It is very scenic with lots of coastal dune lakes and lazily follows the Gulf of Mexico in the Panhandle.  If you have never been here, you ought to make it a priority of places in the U.S. to visit.  It is breath taking.
We stopped at the Red … (0 comments)

santa rosa beach: Waiting is the hard part - 11/18/08 09:28 AM
Hi All,
Okay, here I sit waiting for a response to an offer that I submitted on behalf of my buyers.  It expires at 6 p.m. which is only 28 more minutes. 
The agent told me he was presenting it at 5 p.m. this evening.  It is the waiting that is the difficult part, don't you agree?  I am nervous as the buyers are.  They really want this home. 
I am hopeful I will have good news to deliver to the buyers this evening.
Waiting . . . . . . . . . . . .

santa rosa beach: Do you pick up pennies? - 11/17/08 10:45 PM
I am asking today, "Do you pick up pennies?".  I find myself thrilled at the chance to pick up a lost penny.  I always stop and pick them up.  Do you?  I worked with a customer of mine recently who laughed at me for pickiing up pennies.  He told me that he hated pennies and frequently throws them out the window of his car.  I told him how thrilled I was that he did that because I must be the one who keeps finding them.  I find them everywhere.  They even show up on the beach with sand encrusted on them … (4 comments)

santa rosa beach: Falling Stars - 11/17/08 12:25 PM
Have you ever seen a falling star?  I see them weekly.  While living in Santa Rosa Beach I have seen more falling stars than living anywhere else in the United States.  I see them almost every other day.  I tell people this and they don't believe me.  In fact, there are many people who have never seen one falling star.  They will make me smile, make me make a wish, and give me goose bumps.  My hair on my arms usually stand straight up when I see one. 
I think it is the environment that I live in.  You see Santa … (2 comments)

santa rosa beach: Unemployment hitting local market ~ Destin, FL - 11/14/08 01:42 AM
I went recently to the liquidation sale at Linen n' Things and tried to get an ice cream cone at an already closed Brusters in Destin.  I had not even tried the new Royal B Restaurant and it seems they came in as fast as they left the area.  I heard that Wild Birds Unlimited and Dagwood's Sandwich Shop is closing their doors too.  These are all local employers in our Destin market area.
It makes me wonder who will be next.
Hold on for more foreclosures in the upcoming months.  It may be until early of 2010 before we see … (5 comments)

santa rosa beach: Black Bra Found in Parking Lot in Orlando at NAR - 11/06/08 12:07 AM
I am in Orlando staying at the Residence Inn today.  I am in town for the National Association of Realtors convention which lasts through next Monday.  Today there are classes for the Women's Counci of Realtors and Guest Speaker Jon Gordon, author of the Energy Bus is schedule at 2:45 p.m.  I am really looking forward to hearing him speak today.  On my way to the car this morning I found a black bra in the parking lot.  From what I can tell this Realtor who is missing this bra is probably a double D size.  Call me if you may … (14 comments)

santa rosa beach: Vote Today - 11/03/08 10:06 PM
Voters in South Walton County in Santa Rosa Beach are coming out in numbers to vote this year.  About 50% of all eligible voters have already cast a vote.  The longest wait in the county so far has been about 20 minutes as the election officials have done a good job in opening numerous election polls around the county and properly staffing them.  In Niceville today, Democrats will be gathering to wave signs along the John Sims Parkway in support of Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. 
I personally voted weeks ago in favor of my own candidate and will be watching … (0 comments)

santa rosa beach: Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, Santa Rosa Beach, FL - 10/31/08 04:58 AM
One of the most beautiful parks in the U.S.  Have you been yet?  Wow, it is breath taking beautiful.  The Gulf of Mexico contrasted against the sugary white sand dunes and coastal lakes make it a beautiful place to ride your bike through.  Living close enough to the park system is quite a treat.  It makes for a wonderful Sunday morning bike ride.  It is pristine.  It is approximately 3 miles of protected beach.  Home to sea turtles, butterflies, and sand mice.  You should come for a visit. I did and stayed a lifetime.
