patricia feager: YOU CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE - 03/28/11 01:18 AM
March 28, 2011
As this Redbone Coon Dog knows, you can't please everyone. Please listen to Elvis Presley perform, "You Ain't Nothing But a Houndog." In the very end of the tape, he is being attacked by the media for his performance and his parting words were, "You can't please everyone."

To quote Brian Tracy, "If you did not care at all what anyone else thought about you, what would you do differently or change in your life?

patricia feager: On the Topic of Death & Dying - 03/26/11 05:52 AM
On the Topic of Death and Dying
March 26, 2011
Not a cheery topic, I know... but I have read several posts over the last few days and months about AR members who are going through a personal loss. I am sure this is not a topic that people want to read, after all, we are conditioned to have a positive attitude and not think negative thoughts. But this is life and some of you are suffering; therefore, I want you to know that others care about you.
With the focus on income, setting goals, retirement plans, life achievements, we all … (33 comments)

patricia feager: Texas Bluebonnets - 03/25/11 11:38 PM
March 26, 2011
The Texas Bluebonnets are beginning to poke their noses out of the ground. Photos were taken on Friday, March 25. Here's a sample for your enjoyment.
Texas Bluebonnet
Lupinus texensis(Fabaceae)
A hardy winter annual native to Texas. Adopted as the "State Flower of Texas", this is the most commonly seen variety along roadsides and in uncultivated pastures throughout the state. Flowers are densely arranged on a spike with a characteristic ice white terminal tip. Bluebonnets cannot tolerate poorly drained, clay based soils. Seed planted in poorly drained soils will germinate, but plants will never fully develop. Seedlings will become either stunted or … (39 comments)

patricia feager: OH THANK HEAVEN FOR ROAD CONGESTION!!! - 03/25/11 10:23 PM
March 26, 2011
While sitting in traffic in Flower Mound off of Spinks Road and 2499 yesterday afternoon, I noticed my surroundings; after all, I had enough time to take up knitting! But I'm not patient enough for doing that, and I felt the need to keep moving. So I parked the car and started walking.

I left my car in the parking lot of Shadow Ridge School and I took notice of the earth beneath my feet and the quieter things in nature that takes their time to wake up after a winter's nap. The ground is dry, we need some rain, but … (30 comments)

patricia feager: Happy Birthday Johann Sebastian Bach - 03/21/11 01:05 PM
Johann Sebastian Bach was born on March 21, 1685. His work remains to be one of the greatest Classics  ever created. One of my favorites is Prelude (No. 1, from Welltempered Clavichord)
"I was obliged to be industrious. Whoever is equally industrious will succeed.. equally well." ---Johann Sebastian Bach

patricia feager: WELCOME HOME!!! - 03/20/11 05:43 AM
March 20, 2011
Wisteria
In Asia, wisteria is an emblem of gentleness and obedience. In Victorian days, it meant, "I cling to thee."
The ornate and aromatic Wisteria looks like it is tumbling out of the sky from Heaven.
Wisteria bears an abundance of hues that includes lavendar, pale purple, mauve, light blue, pinkish blue and white.
Here you see how the lavish luster of lavendar hues topples over the garden wall as if it is bursting with joy because Spring is here! It can finally BREATHE and I inhale it's fragrant aroma!
WELCOME HOME WISTERIA!!!

patricia feager: Muscari - Grape Hyacinth - 03/19/11 06:28 AM
March 19, 2011
I am enjoying the Muscari, also known as the Grape Hyacinth in my yard in Flower Mound which is located in close proximity to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
The plant grows well at the foot of Post Oak Trees in the corner of my yard where it gets a lot of shade. I began planting Grape Hyacinth in 1998. They have come up every year, without fail. I do nothing to take care of them and they seem to enjoy their own independence. I feel lucky to have them in my garden because they always signal that Spring is … (20 comments)

patricia feager: Don't Just Sit There - Hunt! - 03/17/11 12:51 PM
March 17, 2011
"Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." --- Will Rogers
Everything I need to know about Real Estate I'm learning from my friend's cat. If I want some business, I have to go on the prowl and hunt for it. It is my food. It pays my bills. It clothes me. It satisfies my many cravings that I need to survive. Everything I have and everything I hope to have is the direct result of the hunt.
Cats are born to hunt. I am learning to hunt both physically and mentally. Hunting … (67 comments)

 March 15, 2011
I received the following information in BOLD from another member. I don't know if the information is True or False, but if anyone on AR knows whether or not it's true, it might help all of us with fuel costs.

I don't know what you guys are paying for gasoline.... but here in California we are paying up to $3.75 to $4.10 per gallon. My line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to get more of your money's worth for every gallon:

patricia feager: Is Every Man A Puzzle? - 03/15/11 01:56 AM
March 15, 2011
The artist in this photo illustrates how much the human body is like a puzzle. Her art, the Puzzle Man was demonstrated at the Texas Storytelling Festival in Denton, Texas on March 12, 2011.

The only part of the Puzzle Man that was missing when the picture was taken was the man's brain. Through storytelling and audience participation, a noodle brain was created and added to the back of the head. 
I always believed that the human body is one big puzzle and that we are all connected through our genes and the personal people that connect with us throughout our life. … (39 comments)

patricia feager: A Lesson From the Hawks - 03/13/11 06:09 PM
March 13, 2011
I have no photos to share, just word pictures that began early this morning. While pulling out of my driveway, I looked up in the sky, and there, not far from my eyes, was a large and graceful hawk that hovered over my car. Immediately I felt an attachment to the bird that was soaring like a kite in the sky, but the bird was real, and it gave me a sense of being emotionally free. This was a beautiful thing to see as I saw it spread its impressive wings while it soared almost effortlessly.
I turned the corner, … (16 comments)

March 12, 2011
Texas Storytelling Festival: The wonderful art of Storytelling is being held at the Denton Civic Center in Denton, TX from March 10 - 13 at the Denton Civic Center in Texas.
Appearing on stage at the Women's Building on Saturday was Gary Whitker who told the story of "Beowulf," Lorene Stillwell, "The Fisherman's Garden," and Jere Pfister, "What the Storm Brought Home."
I was in awe as I saw each Storyteller get into characterization to tell their unique stories.

Jay Whitaker lit up the stage as he transformed into a wizard telling his version of Beuwolf. He remained focused throughout the … (4 comments)

patricia feager: ONE QUARTER DOWN; THREE TO GO!!! - 03/10/11 08:11 AM
March 10, 2011
WHY GOALS MATTER
At the onset of a 2011, people were interested in starting goals for the New Year. For many, it was an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and an opportunity to start fresh. How was your First Quarter? Did you achieve your First Quarter goals? I don't know about you, but I'm ready to start the Second Quarter to make up for First Quarter! (Sound familiar?)
Even though First Quarter Goals may not have been successful as initially planned, it's important to know that we get to reset the clocks just like we do for Day Light Savings Time!!! … (52 comments)

patricia feager: Words for Wednesday March 9, 2011 - 03/08/11 09:51 PM
IT'S YOUR LIFE, TAKE CHARGE - KEEP YOUR NOSE OUT OF OTHER PEOPLE'S BUSINESS THAT DOESN'T CONCERN YOU

WHEN DEALING WITH OTHER PEOPLE'S PROBLEMS THAT DOES CONCERN YOU, LEARN TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES AND TRUST YOUR INSTINCT. ANIMAL INSTINCT IS USUALLY ALWAYS RIGHT!

BEWARE OF SNAKES ALONG THE WAY; REMAIN CALM AND SLOW TO ANGER

STAY STEADY; REMAIN CALM, SLOW IS GOOD, PROCEED WITH CAUTION...

SEEK REFUGE; FIND A BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS

YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND SOMETHING TO SQUAWK ABOUT; OR YOU CAN REMAIN SILENT - BE THE ODD DUCK - BE A BETTER PERSON

March 8, 2011
Through the ages, the Irish have had a wild and vivid imagination that has lifted many people's spirits - just look at all the people when they go to the Irish Pubs to celebrate St. Patty's Day or local taverns in general! Oh, da spirits are alive and well! Oh, da green beer is soooo good! 'Tis a great thing to celebrate with Irish because all life's toils and troubles seem to disappear and turn into the realms of fairies, leprechauns, dragons, and other mythic heroes. So now is the time to indulge your wild Irish imagination. The Irish believe that a  flight … (20 comments)

I noticed that the Flower Mound, TX Post Office is waving a new flag with the American Flag. It got my attention and so here it is...
This journal entry is dedicated to all those Americans missing in action and held Prisoners of War. They  have not been forgotten and I"m proud that the Post Master from the Flower Mound, Texas Post Office decided he was going to display this new flag over the city where I live and work - it got my attention. I am indebted to the families of those who sacrificed their lives for American freedom. We … (21 comments)

March 6, 2011
The time was exactly 6:50 p.m. this evening when I had a head on on collision with the most beautiful Midnight Blue Sky over Texas. I call it luck! I parked my car as quickly as I could and grabby my trusty camera to show you what I'm talking about.
I stood there in the parking lot on Flower Mound Road or 3040 near Gerault and I felt as if I had been looking up at the deep blue sea but it was the sky looking down at me. I am driven to write about this Midnight Blue Sky over Texas … (26 comments)
