st augustine: April Fools Day - 03/27/18 08:10 AM
April  Fools' Day has always intrigued me.  A prankster at heart, I am all-in on April 1st playing pranks on my co-workers, husband and loved ones.
How did this crazy day of goofs and pranks originate?  History.com explains that it started in 1700 when English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition by playing practical jokes on each other.  
But, how did it start?  
The site continues "Some historians speculate that April Fools’ Day dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, as called for by the Council of Trent in 1563. People who were slow to … (5 comments)

st augustine: Now THAT'S Doggone Funny! - 07/23/12 11:07 PM
Ever glance at your dog and catch an amazing look on his face?  Awww, how cute, right?
I found an ap that can actually capture your dogs thoughts in a picture.  It called DogCap and its really easy.  Simply simply take a photo of your dog with your iPhone or iPad and the ap assigns a caption to the photo.  There are hundreds of captions and its amazing how this app has a way of reading your dog's thoughts.  
After you capture the moment you can share it with your friends and followers on Twitter or Facebook.  Check out how it works.

st augustine: St. Augustine and St. Johns County 24 Hr. Market Report - 01/05/12 12:49 AM
St. Augustine and St. Johns County 24 Hr. Market Report for January 5, 2005 shows that there were 18 homes with price adjustments.  It appears that the Sellers are understanding that even in the active St. Augustine real estate market, the correct list price is vitally important.
Nearly 25 homes were re-listed in the last 24 hours, catching up the large end of year expired listings.

st augustine: St. Augustine & St. Johns County 24 Hr. Market Report - 01/05/12 12:43 AM
St. Augustine, St. Johns County 24 Hr. Market Report for January 2, 2012 shows quite a few of the end of the year expired listings have been renewed.  Which leads me to think that agents that were out listing new homes yesterday, forgot to renew their expiring December listings!
Not surprising at all that there were no closings during this 24 hour period as it was New Year's Day.

st augustine: Spam Allerting Pays Off - 12/31/11 02:16 AM

 
 
Recently I've noticed A LOT of 3rd party advertising in the replies of some of the post's I've been reading.  Frankly, it pisses me off. 
So, I have reported a concern each time I've read them.
I was just checking my points (cause I have a friendly competition going) and noticed that I got 10 points for each reported concern.
Thanks you Active Rain for rewarding good behavior!  I hope that you kick out those who are advertising sneakers, purses, watches and other irrelevancy.

st augustine: If you Can't Stand The Heat.... - 08/05/11 01:30 AM
This has been a record setting year for temperatures in St. Augustine Florida and across much of the country. Weeks on end of scalding temperatures have left landscapes scorched and have resulted in numerous fatalities, namely among the elderly.  Which as you know our state of Florida has an older population.
 
 My fiance, Dan, is retired from the Centers for Diease Control (CDC) in Atlanta.  He shared with me some tips from the Center for those who have decided to brave the heat.
 
Keep hydrated. This means cool, non-alcoholic beverages, since alcohol dehydrates you further. Don't wait to drink … (2 comments)

st augustine: Adapt Your Home to it's Selling Season - 04/08/11 11:36 AM
Homes in St. Augustine Florida are beautiful all year long.   We don't have the brutal winters or the mess from leaves in the fall.  So we are lucky to have a great selling season all year long.
There's a selling myth that you should wait till springtime to sell your home. While spring is the busiest season for real estate sales across most of the country, people buy homes 365 days a year.   Here are some great hints to help emphasize your home's seasonal amenities.

st augustine: A holiday tradition in the Nation’s Oldest City - 10/24/10 05:53 PM
I can’t believe it has been 17 years since the first Nights of Lights switch was flipped and our town was transformed into an enchanted city of light.  Come out to the Plaza to help celebrate on Saturday, November 20 at 6:30pm.
Thousands will be downtown at the plaza cheering our Mayor, Joe Boles, while he flips the switch lighting the city tree.  Instantly, over two million white lights fill St. Augustine's every corner with brilliant and magical holiday sparkle. Enjoy light displays at over 100 locations, including buildings, parks, medians and gardens throughout the city. Truly a sight to behold.

st augustine: The Little Rascals and Arbor Day - 05/08/10 04:44 AM
Arbor Day always reminds me of the Little Rascals.  I was introduced to Arbor Day by Spanky and his Gang.  Do you remember the episode where Spanky plays hooky to ditch his school's pageant and midgets disguise themselves as children and they perform a racy little number in the show?

No need for truancy for St. Augustine Beach's Arbor Day ceremonies.  They are set for 5:30 p.m., Friday, at City Hall, A1A South.
There will even be a "pageant" of sorts, featuring the St. Augustine High School guitar ensemble, a poetry contest featuring St. Augustine High School winners and R.B. Hunt … (3 comments)

st augustine: St. Augustine's Historic Bridge Of Lions - 03/10/10 01:30 AM
I am so excited.  After years of construction, mess and traffic re-routs, The Bridge of Lions downtown St. Augustine will open a week from today -- at 10 am on March 17. 
This has been a five-year-long, $80 million restoration project and the residents have been very patient throughout this process.  When I am showing homes in St. Augustine, I make it a point to cross the temporary bridge and proudly tell of the restoration of the Lions and the story of our historic Bridge of Lions while navigating through construction traffic.
There's bound to be a joyful crowd for the ceremony … (2 comments)

st augustine: St. Augustine will Soon Sparkle - 11/10/09 10:39 PM
My favorite time of year is almost here, winter in St. Augustine, the Nation’s Oldest City. When the sun goes down, millions of white lights will soon create a magical holiday atmosphere throughout the historic Downtown district. The 16th Annual Nights of Lights Celebration in St. Augustine, Florida begins November 21st and lasts through January 31st. Business as well as homes in St. Augustine will be illuminated during the event.
I remember talking with St. Augustine City Commissioner, Bill Lennon, when he introduced this tradition to the City Council about 18 years ago. He wanted to transform the city into a … (2 comments)

st augustine: Baby Its Hot Outside - 07/17/09 01:10 AM
Summer is here ... full force!
We all know that it gets hot in Florida during the summer.  Fortunately, here on Anastasia Island in St. Augustine Florida, there is a gentle breeze most all the time. It sure helps in making us all feel a bit more comfortable.
I know that when I'm running around showing properties this time of year I am wilted by the end of the day and sometimes joke that I'm having heat stroke.
Well that is no joke - read on.

st augustine: Detour near Bridge of Lions - 01/07/09 11:10 AM
For those of us who travel the Bridge of Lions between Anastasia Island and Downtown St. Augustine, please note there will be another detour.  

The north end of Dolphin Dr. and its intersection with Anastasia Blvd. will be closed three days starting tomorrow January 8, 2009.  The closure is due to the paving of the south side of Anastasia Blvd. from Dolphin Dr. east to just past Gerado Street. 
Traffic will be rerouted using Zorayda and Arricola Avenues.   
Patience my friends, just think how GREAT this new Bridge of Lions will be when its completed.

The Womens Council of REALTORS St. Augustine Regional Chapter hosted a Technology Seminar yesterday.  Lead by a phenomenal National Speaker, Amy Chorew, we learned how network sites (like Active Rain) help in our web search optimization.  Amy reviewed two cool programs that I did not know about, and they are free by the way, that will save me time and money in my business. 
 
The first program, Photo Story 3, I have actually used before.  I have made a few videos from personal digital photos.  What I did not know was that your voice can be added to the "video" … (5 comments)
