ky: Unusual Skies in Owensboro, Kentucky - 12/30/08 01:18 PM
 I snapped these photos while driving on Christmas eve in Owensboro, Kentucky
Well, I actually just clicked them through my front windshield, so they may not be the best quality. 
The sky color was so unusual and I had to try to capture it rather quickly since cars were whizzing by so quickly! You would think they were in a hurry because Santa was coming.....

You really had to be there to experience the unusual hues of purple, pink, blue and yellow skies!
Wishing you many sunny Skies in 2009!

ky: If states will soon be regulating WHO gets mail, where will it all end?? - 05/13/08 03:04 AM
Earlier I wrote about the Do Not Mail List possibly coming into effect, with some states pushing harder than others
This is how the Do Not Call List got started, it slowly but surely came into effect.  Yes, I did put my home phone and my cell phone on the Do Not Call List because the calls got out of hand and ridiculous. 
Yes, I do open my mail over the trash can and throw away all junk mail on the spot, but does that mean that I want it to become a law that only certain people can mail letters … (62 comments)

I wrote a post earlier about how excited I was about my new grandson coming in May. 
 Here is one of the photos I took  symbolizing the miracle of his birth.
Well, since he was going to be a big one, the Doctor decided to induce my daughter-in-law 2 weeks early.  I am so excited to announce that I had the pleasure of being in the delivery room  with my daughter-in-law, my son and her mom for the grand entrance of this beautiful baby boy that weighed 9lbs. 11 ozs..

ky: Why Generation "Y" ? - 04/02/08 11:47 AM
I just had to share a copy of this and pass it on, as it was in my email from a fellow collegue and I thought it explained the different generations by age group that we have to learn and know how to best sell to each generation.  Selling is different depending on the generation you are trying to sell to! 
 Apparently a caricaturist from Quebec City newspaper, Le Soleil,figured it out to a "T" or should I say to a"Y"-- read on and you figure out the "Y" at the end...LOL
It may make a little more sense will give … (3 comments)

ky: BUYERS: get pre-qualified/qualified first.... - 04/02/08 07:27 AM
I have had many potential buyers ask me, "Why should I get qualified or pre-approved for a loan before I even find a home?"  They may further state, when I bought my first home, my agent "never even suggested that. She just took me in her car and we drove me all around and the when I found something I liked, I applied for my home loan."  Yes, I do ask certain pre-qualifying questions first. Depending on the answers, and the amount of house payment desired,  determines if I should show them homes right now.  For example,  If a buyer doesn't have any money, has a low credit … (5 comments)

ky: I want my LTV.... - 03/23/08 11:59 AM
No.  I am not talking about my loan to value ratio.  I am talking about my new found love for my laptop and active rain -instead of TV. (not that I ever "loved" TV)
 I told my husband the other day, "my laptop is my new TV."  (for short, my laptop TV or "LTV" ) He enjoys his flat-screen TV.  I have never really been a fan of TV.  Let me clarify what I mean.  Maybe you can identify with me.  When my husband watches television with that remote control thing attached to his hand as he surfs the channels constantly, he doesn't usually hear … (16 comments)

ky: Woodcrest Subdivision Owensboro Kentucky - 03/08/08 06:20 AM
Oh!  Look at the little "Snowbabies" their own back yard in the snow.  Well, they are not actually snow babies, but they are in the snow -They are so snuggly and they are "best friends" and they live for and totally trust each other too.  They are with each other every step of the way. They are simply enjoying each other in the snow. Don't they just have the life? Did you get a chance to get out and play in your own neighborhood and frolic in the snow?
These two furry friends are named Jillie, she is the Golden Retriever, and Bela is the yellow lab. They … (3 comments)

ky: Mutton Anyone? Try Moonlite Cafe in Owensboro Kentucky! - 03/06/08 09:51 AM
  Well let me first begin with this: this is all new to me too. 
 When I first came to Owensboro,KYso many people here and from other places asked me if "I tried the mutton yet."  Well, being the city girl that I am, I had no idea what they were talking about, and once I figured out what it was, I wanted no parts of it.  
I thought WHY would I even want to eat it?  It just didn't sound appealing. I thought, Just shoot me!! But, then I got to thinking, maybe I should just have an open mind and with a little coercion from … (1 comments)
