patricia feager: Dog Days of Summer - Just Grit and Bear it! - 08/03/19 12:24 AM
This is a combination re-blog of the post I wrote on 7/31 before knowing about the August Challenge from Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 and I added more photos and verbiage to qualify.
 
 
The definition says dog days of summer have nothing to do with dogs but everything to do with sultry weather. First and foremost, I want to be clear this photo was taken at the Dallas Zoo and the animals are not abused. The gorilla and the lions in my photographs found a cool spot to lie down which was very convenient for visitors who watched in the viewing area behind … (22 comments)

things they don't want to impress people they don't like."

What is a dream house is just a matter of perception and the biggest difference is between

The building of New Construction takes time. What you can afford or can't afford to spend while waiting for Certificate of Occupancy makes all the difference. The amount of time it takes to build depends on many factors such as weather conditions, planning and zoning restrictions, permits, materials, excavation, utilities, manpower, etc. New construction is built on unimproved land and at the … (18 comments)

We came in peace for all mankind."

July 20, 2019
 
The Cities within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex are all pretty hot over the summer months. I prepare for the heat in March or April by doing three things:  
 
1) Take my car in for service maintenance 
2) Schedule home AC service
 
3) Prepare a Summer Emergency bag
 
Pathwater is a 100% refillable and recyclable aluminum bottle with purified water inside. It keeps my water cold. I believe in refilling not landfill. Everything I need I carry with me in my Dallas Bag.

"Dost though love life? Then do not squander time
for that is the stuff life is made of."

Gone With The Wind, one of the greatest movies of all time is a classic with many memorable quotes and stupendous photography and costumes. The memorable sign outside of Twelve Oaks Plantation "Do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of" is timeless advice. The Civil War was a definite turning point in U.S. History and although Hattie McDaniel (June 10, 1893 - October 26, 1952) was no Benjamin Franklin, when it comes … (11 comments)

A walk in a park is reason enough to get motivated. When I came upon some ducks, the message was clear which caused me to pause and think a lot about the following topics:
 
Intimidation Bullying Getting Attention Showing Off Aggression  
 
In my illustration of duck tales, there were about a dozen ducks onshore and only one in the water who didn't get out. That one duck in the water ruffled its feathers, showed off, did a lot of squawking to get attention while the others remained silent, listening, staring, barely moving, simply watching the one in … (22 comments)

My years of experience on ActiveRain and in the business has given me a sense of belonging with people who share similar experiences in the real estate industry.
