F&Q - Part 5 of 5
 
What is the most important aspect of a Real Estate Transaction?
 
Communication is the most important aspect of purchasing a home. Our brains are lateralized and depending on whether a person is left brain or right brain, humans process information in different ways. The ability to remember what we see, hear, read, and write is critical to achieving success. Effective communication is necessary to feel comfortable.
 
Effective communication is a skill that takes practice to comprehend words, understand meaning, talk back with cogency, intelligence, and express feeling. Language has been evolving before we were even … (43 comments)

GALT (Greyhound Adoption League of Texas) is a wonderful place to adopt or foster a Greyhound. No animal should be bred for the purpose of being abused. GALT is an organization that does a thorough job checking references on people who want to adopt or foster a Greyhound. It's a process that the organization does well. Every year the Greyhound Adoption League has an annual birthday party for Greyhounds and pet owners which includes lunch, beverages, birthday cake (one for dogs; one for people), prizes for different categories, nail trimmings, auctions, and photographers. 
 
Over the years, I have had … (16 comments)

patricia feager: The Road to Repair Doesn't Have to be that Long - 06/02/17 08:24 AM

Living in Flower Mound, Texas has many advantages. In addition to affordable housing, excellent schools, shopping, medical facilities including hospitals, parks and recreation, caring people who work with the Town of Flower Mound  is something that may not be available in other communities or that residents in Flower may be aware of exists.  
 
The road to repairs can be strenuous and more difficult for some than others. Financial distress, sickness, loss of income, family catastrophes, personal loss, and death in the family can happen to anyone. There is a Program available for Flower Mound residents with people from the … (9 comments)

PHOTOS FROM FLOWER MOUND, TEXAS
BY PATRICIA FEAGER
 
 
People moving to Flower Mound may wonder about scenic views when there is no ocean or mountains. I find Flower Mound an interesting place to live to discover unusual plants, butterflies, and reptiles locally. Sure, it's all about location, location, location, but what else can a person learn besides schools, taxes, shopping, hospitals, and medical facilities?
 
 
 
Spring is a beautiful time of year. The collage I created above is a sample of some of the beautiful sights I saw within the last five days in Flower Mound. While many families are busy with graduations, curriculum activities, … (15 comments)

Musings by Patricia Feager
 
 
After a wet and windy spring, this is the result of my annual manual labor in my Flower Mound garden. I enjoy planting and adding something new every year. The flowers in the top left was a complete surprise! When I planted it into the earth, there were no buds or flowers! To me, it looks uniquely exotic and I am proud of how it turned out! The photo on the top right was taken a few days ago when the winds were blowing fast. I felt as if the petals waved back at me, letting me know … (53 comments)

A mother's womb is a vessle, just a vehicle to transport life into the world. There is no greater closeness than an infant to their mother after birth. A mother's body adapts and instinctively knows more than she thought she did and graduates to Motherhood on a daily basis. 
 
A woman, a mother who stands strong in the face of adversity has a direct impact on her child. Many children do not know the suffering their mother endured before, during, or after they were born. A mother who loves her children protects them. She is a woman warrior, … (25 comments)

by ©Patricia Feager 5/8/2017
 
In the land of texting is talking becoming a lost art? The forgotten skill?

Personal Communication
What impact does texting have on loved ones and friends? 
Body language is missing People can be misunderstood There could be wrong interpretation Absence of voice recognition  People are oblivious to their surroundings Major distractions and lack of concentration Communication breakdowns Personal touch isn't really personal at all Kids can get bored and zone out  
Effects
If talking is becoming a lost art of effective communication, it may take years before we know if there are harmful effects and future problems linking texting to people problems … (88 comments)

Artscape at the Dallas Arboretum was wonderful. The gardens were literally dripping in color! I saw these vendors selling their wares and couldn't resist - I had to take a photograph. 
 
Interesting people are creative and they brighten up our world. Their fascination with color makes other people happy. An artist challenges me to think outside the box with highlighted thoughts in brighter colors. Through their work, an artist makes bold statements and we begin to see things differently. Not everything is black and white, soft and hard, large or small. Variations in thought is what makes it a more … (24 comments)

There's a great new Restaurant in Flower Mound called "First Watch." In my opinion, it's one of the best new restaurants in the area located near the corner of Morris Road and FM 407/Justin Road. See their website for menu features: www.firstwatch.com. Not only is the coffee, juice, and food delicious, the Host and the Waitress' and Waiters provide the best quality services I've experienced in a very, very long time.

Timber Creek Subdivision is a place in Flower Mound, TX where kids can quack like ducks and ducks can grow old. Both can live in harmony. This beautiful subdivision has walking trails to school for Elementary and Middle School and it's closely patrolled.

©Musings by Patricia Feager, 4/25/2017
 
In the book "Eat, Pray & Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert she references people to "Soul Mates." As she poignantly explains the perception of what people think is a "Soul Mate," may not be what we imagine they should be, or perhaps they are in love in the beginning, but true life experience paints the real picture and the picture is subject to change. Same is true with houses - in the beginning something attracted you to where you live but if you put the house on the market, something changed with the occupants, the location may not suit your needs, perhaps … (14 comments)

patricia feager: Ice is Nice & Other Lessons on Success & Failure - 04/24/17 06:15 AM
©Patricia Feager, 4/24/2017 
 
The temperatures in Dallas on Friday, 4/24/17 was 86 degrees but the ice was nice at the Dallas Galleria. Shoppers were mingling, people were taking brisk walks, some folks were sitting at cafe tables on the main floor; others like myself were hanging over the balcony watching skaters skate fearlessly! 

 
As an observer, what can we learn about success and failure?
Success propels one to move forward Failure requires forgiveness Success releases us from our fears Failure welcomes second chances Success is the result of hard work Failure is a learning lesson Success is the result of persistence Failure doesn't … (28 comments)

patricia feager: Simply Speechless - Does Size Matter? - 04/23/17 08:08 AM
 
 
Good Morning! I captured this photo in my neighborhood on Saturday 4/22/17. The bird was sitting on top my neighbor's house. Using Ribbet I edited the photo to appear more mystical. The size of the bird on top of the 2-story house was pretty enormous. In the grand scheme of things how big is big, and does size really matter, at all?
 
SIZE 
Is it just an illusion or proof that bigger is better? When applying the Pareto Principle (80/20 Rule), 80 percent of the effects come from 20 percent of the causes.  By the same rule of thumb, most decisions are made … (22 comments)
