realtor: My Favorite Subject - As Usual ;-) - 10/27/10 09:13 PM
B was recently asked by a friend who is taking photography classes, if she would be her model. Of course, she said yes. So here's one of her latest shots. I have to admit, this group of photos is definitely not what I've become accustomed to seeing, when we get copies of the photos. But she's still my favorite subject, so I guess I'll still share ;-)

I guess I have to keep in mind that these were taken by a student. B said she got no instructions at all. But she learned a few things too. Number one was, … (22 comments)

realtor: Facebook Changes and Abuses Part 2 - 10/23/10 03:46 PM
My last post was a reblog of C Tann Star's post about recent changes on Facebook, that allowed random people to add you to groups without your knowledge. At that point, and up until now, I had not had this personally happen to me... that I know of. But just a few minutes ago, I was logged in, and a box popped up at the bottom of my screen, saying that *insert name* had just added me to the group "Please Join! Stop Bullying In Schools!!".
Well, that certainly sounds like a worthy cause, but the problem is, I did not … (16 comments)

realtor: Port Orange Family Days - Happening Right Now! - 10/02/10 05:22 AM
I'm late on posting about Port Orange Family Days this year, since I haven't been blogging as much. And it's happening right now! But don't worry. It lasts all weekend. And so far we're having great weather for it!
So if you live in the Port Orange/Daytona Beach areas, head on over to the Port Orange City Center. If you've never been before, you should definitely go! You can enjoy music, games, food (LOTS of food!), fun and rides at the midway! I rarely miss a year, so I'll be there tomorrow. (You'll probably find me on the rides.)
If you're … (5 comments)

realtor: Life on Other Planets - What Do You Believe? Check This Out! - 09/29/10 07:38 PM
I can't remember the last time a bit of news got me this excited. (I'll bet Vegas Bob is jumping up and down right now!)
If you haven't read about the most recently found planet in the "Goldilocks Zone", you have to check out this article... "Could Goldilocks Planet Be Just Right for Life?"  What got me the most excited was this one quote- "...because conditions are ideal for liquid water, and because there always seems to be life on Earth where there is water, Vogt believes that chances for life on this planet are 100 percent."
I don't know about … (8 comments)

realtor: SILLY SATURDAY! The Cupid Shuffle - 07/17/10 12:10 AM
It's been a LONG time since I wrote a Silly Saturday post, and now seemed like the perfect time! Yesterday, in one of my posts, I mentioned that last weekend my daughter and I were doing the Cupid Shuffle, and the Put a Ring on it Dance. While I DO NOT recommend that just anyone try the dance to Beyonce's, "Put A Ring On It" song (Quite complicated!), I DO recommend that everyone try the Cupid Shuffle.
I can assure you that if you ever took one of my aerobics classes, the Cupid Shuffle is much easier ;-)   But it is … (8 comments)

realtor: Ponce Inlet Real Estate Listings and Photo - 07/16/10 11:59 AM
Instead of just a photo post today, I've decided to share a photo of one of the beautiful walking paths between the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and the Inlet. Walking these relaxing paths is an enjoyable way to spend some time, if you're a visitor or a local resident. This particular wooden-walking-bridge is near the Marine Science Center, and leads you over peaceful marshes and even has a tower you can climb, to overlook the area.

If you're interested in buying or selling a house or condo in Ponce Inlet, it's a beautiful place to call home. In Ponce Inlet right … (3 comments)

realtor: Sailing Away, "Captain Ron" Style - 07/07/10 05:30 PM
I was just reading (and viewing) a photo blog post by Mike Mitchell titled "Sailing". As I commented on his post, it reminded me of the days when I met my husband. He had sold a lucrative business in Michigan, bought a sailboat (a Hudson Force 50) and taken a 2 year sabbatical. Since he didn't have much else to do, he was taking my aerobics class all the time. (For about 23 years I taught all kinds of fitness classes. I was always able to supplement my income and get a free gym membership, and there were even times when … (18 comments)

realtor: Soci@l-Your Brand and Online Image - 07/04/10 04:50 PM
About 3 weeks ago I agreed to take on the challenge of reading and reviewing the new book "Soci@l" written by Ben Kinney in conjunction with ActiveRain and Jay Papasan. And I've admitted to procastinating on getting this done. I'm a fast reader, so my problem wasn't in reading the book, or even in deciding whether or not I enjoyed the read. (I did.) My problem is that I am a total geek. And many web sites, ventures, portals, etc., that I see mentioned not only in this book, but on many blog posts I read on an almost-daily basis, are … (11 comments)

realtor: Rule Enforcers vs Rule Breakers; and Florida Real Estate Contracts - 07/04/10 02:17 AM
I was recently reading an article in a local magazine, that was written by a Little League Baseball Coach. He is a bonafide Rule Enforcer. He knows every rule of the game, and exactly how far they can or cannot be bent. He also knows a couple of common mistakes that are made by other coaches when they get 2 similar rules confused. As I read the article, my mind was comparing his nature, and his experiences, to my own nature and experiences, and how these can apply to the real estate industry as well.
I admit to being a Rule … (6 comments)

realtor: Live Life to the Fullest. Don't Let Fear Hold You Back! - 06/24/10 10:24 PM
A little while ago I was reading a post by Jeff Dowler titled "Make Mistakes, and Make Mistakes Often". I highly recommend you read his post! (You may have to scroll down to his post since it's for members only. My link is to his blog.)
As I contemplated, and commented on Jeff's post, I decided to expound on it with this post. And I made this decision because of a personal decision and commitment to which I've held myself for as long as I can remember.
In my comment to Jeff, I stated... "It's amazing how many lessons we learn … (23 comments)

realtor: If Real Estate is Such a Bad Investment Why Are We Talking? - 05/31/10 01:08 PM
If Real Estate is Such a Bad Investment then Why Are We Talking? That's the question posed by AR blogger J. Philip Faranda in New York. Now since I sell real estate in the area of Daytona Beach Florida, obviously I'm not going to New York. You'll have to call J. Philip for that ;-)  But since he did such a great job of blogging about the topic of real estate investing, I decided to share his post with you. Here's a small snippet...

realtor: Fit As A Fiddle? May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month - 05/10/10 07:08 PM
I'm re-blogging this post I just found, for obvious reasons... We need it! But before we get to the post, I'll begin with the comment I left on it...
I taught aerobics (both hi and low), Spinning, Aquatics, Step, and Hip-Hop for 16 years before being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Then I switched to Yoga and Pilates. But I've been unable to teach for the last couple of years =(  But I do enjoy walking. I think it's great that we can encourage fitness this entire month! I walked over 5 miles on Friday night. I have to force myself to take … (5 comments)

realtor: Unable to Comment, or Need More Real Estate Info? - 05/01/10 05:07 AM
If you're one of my blog readers and/or subscribers, and you haven't been "in the loop" for the past week or so, you're probably discovering some problems with the Active Rain system. and unfortunately, you probably can't comment. This is the first post I've been able to make "stick in 3 days, and I've been unable to comment at all, on anyone else's blog.
So, in order to keep you up-to-date on some of our new listings, I've posted 3 of them to one of my backup blogs. I don't use it very often, but at least I do have a … (0 comments)

realtor: Wordless Wednesday: Run Nick, RUN! - 04/21/10 04:00 PM
LOL. This one is just because Nick has now joined us in the Rain. I never asked him why he had himself running 5 times in one photo. Is he SO passionate about running that this is his way of conveying it? Hmmm. Nick? I know you're lurking. We're all going to make up wild stories about the reason for this photo, until (and probably still after) you explain your creative motivation =P
(Brought to you by brattygirl7... If you've been paying attention, you'll already know about brattygirl7. If not... oh well =P Crap-Nick can rat me out on that one.)

realtor: Earth Day 2010 - 04/21/10 11:04 AM
It's that time of year again. On April 22, 2010, we all (should) celebrate Earth Day, and the planet with which we've been blessed. It's time once again, to consider how we can do our part to protect our resources.
Hopefully by now, everyone is familiar with the following words...
REDUCE RECYCLE REUSE These 3 words are what we've been hearing for years. But are you really doing your part? Are you taking this seriously? Because it IS serious! We can't just use up our planet and find another one, in spite of what we see on the SyFy channel.

realtor: Running the Rat Race? Or Running the Long Race for Real Estate Success? - 04/18/10 03:06 PM
This is another one of Nice Gregor's photos. Since he's been slacking (already!), I'm back to using his photos =P  I've actually had this photo saved on my computer for a long time. You see, what you don't know about Nick is that he's a marathon runner.  His nickname on every forum he joins is "Nickrun".
I know he has several photos of his running exploits. I've seen them. I'm hoping he'll share some of them, and his stories eventually. But for now, I have to say, I was inspired by this photo from the first time I saw it. Thinking … (7 comments)
