patricia feager: Inspirational Sunday with a Golden Twist - 10/21/18 07:05 AM

"Friendship is the shadow of the evening,
which increases with the setting sun of life."
--- Jean de La Fontaine
 
 
One of the many aspects of friendship that fascinates me is how incredibly connected we become over time when we genuinely support one another during the course of each others life journey.
 
Like property, friendship is an investment that we hope grows over time. These particular friends I'm writing about this morning have been a special part of my life for more than 21 years. We became fast friends long before I got into the real estate business. Over the ages we became … (19 comments)

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."
--- Henry David Thoreau
 
Happy Monday! My daughter sent me a photo of herself in the Swiss Alps yesterday and her picture reminded of a meaningful quote by Henry David Thoreau. As the receiver of this photograph, I see my daughter cares about me. How many times do people take photos that seems meaningless, i.e., cup of coffee, a plate of vegetables, fruit, or desert, etc. Posting various digital photos are a common trend on Instagram, Facebook, and other Social Media Platforms. People are taking advantage of digital photos … (20 comments)

patricia feager: Adrift at Sea - Could You Survive? - 09/24/18 09:31 AM
by Patricia Feager
Today's story was inspired by a just released BBC News Story this morning on 9/24/18.
 
 
INDONESIAN TEENAGER SURVIVES 49 DAYS ADRIFT AT SEA
As a recap, teen got loss at sea for 49 days by himself. He used survival skills to keep himself alive, such as using "wood taken from his vessel," to cook and eat. He was out at sea because it was his job to trap fish but when "heavy winds, which  caused his moorrings to snap," he found himself in danger, getting lost at sea. 
 
HOW HE SURVIVED
When boats sailed past him and didn't stop, he never gave … (18 comments)

Autumn in Flower Mound
Photos by Patricia - Taken on a Vacant Lot
 
Like an embryo that ripens inside of Mother's Earth, a big rock appears in the most unusual place. While living in Maine I found many rocks like the one in my photograph. They were very common in New England. This is the first one I saw in Flower Mound. Striking red berries reminds me that the holidays are right around the corner. A dragonfly enjoys tasty treats and seems to fly slower than usual. And this daisy must have gotten a second chance at life to breathe … (10 comments)

by Patricia Feager
 
 
 
GREEN ANATOLE
 
Little lizards are common in Flower Mound, Texas. This one is a male and found something in the garden to blow out his sack under his chin to proclaim he is territorial. I'm glad they eat bugs but I would not touch them. Although people can turn them into a reptile pet, I prefer to keep them outside where they are free to roam on anything or anywhere, except me. 
 
In summer they are a very pretty shade of green. Now that autumn is near, I noticed they are more brown. Just like scavengers, they eat insects. Although some people … (5 comments)

"Kimzey's Coffee dreams of a world brought together by
good coffee, a kind community, and a whimsical imagination."
 
KIMZEY'S COFFEE SHOP
ARGYLE, TX
 
Actually, there's nothing wrong with the roof in my photograph taken at a delightful coffee shop in Argyle that serves delicious GOOD coffee unlike anyone else in this small European settlement, population approximately 3,282, settled in 1850. The roof is really designed this way and functions just fine.

"If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help
make the world safe for diversity." --- John F. Kennedy
 
As of Thurday, August 16, 2018, the soul of Aretha Franklin now rests; however, the "Queen of Rock & Soul," will live on as one of the greatest and most beloved vocalists of all times. Since the day she was born, she risked all types of adversities to rise up to be a better human being at a time when it wasn't easy for a woman to stand out on her own. Her presence on stage was dynamic … (29 comments)

HISTORY OF SKYSCRAPERS
 
Like many major cities, Dallas boasts beautiful skyscrapers. The first steel-frame skyscraper, Home Insurance Building was built in the year 1885 in downtown Chicago, located on the corner of Adams and LaSalle Street. It was demolished in 1931 and replaced with the Field Building, also known as the LaSalle Bank Building. The architect for the Home Insurance Building skyscraper was William Lee Baron Jenney. His successful innovation gave rise to many exceptionally talented architects who constructed skyscrapers … (20 comments)

MUSIC CITY MALL AT VISTA RIDGE
A lot of changes have occurred in the City of Lewisville, TX. One is that the old Mall at Vista Ridge was purchased at auction last September, paid for in cash by John Bushman's family owned Investment Corporation of America . Since I'm not a shopper, it has taken quite a while for me to pop inside to check out what's new. Surprising changes and thoughts about the mall:

NORTH TEXAS NEWS
North Texas had 21 days in July of triple digits. How wonderful it was to wake up to the swirling winds this morning, trees bending, leaves falling, dark clouds moving in rapidly. I thought for sure we were going to have a terrible thunderstorm in Flower Mound; yet barely enough rain fell to the earth.
 
I checked on my listing, the one with the pool. It was covered in leaves. I took the net and skimmed as many as I could. Sure, I could have contacted the sellers and say, "You need to get your pool service … (24 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 7/25/18
 
 
 
 
 
While flipping through channels between 2:00 and 3:00 a.m., I noticed different channels all with the same type of show called "Make $$ in Real Estate Locally." This post reflects a continuous interest in the media, different channels, same message, promoting consumer interest in making money in real estate using stars on T.V. to capture a late night audience by using fast talkers who are marketing themselves as experts while talking about how easy it is to become rich if you follow their program. First and foremost, I'm not an advocate for this type of selling real estate … (29 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 7/23/18
 
Summer heat. Summer rain. Summer thunderstorms. Summer nights. These are all good reasons to cuddle up with a book and read. Below are my picks for summer reading and why I've chosen them:
 
CRIMINALS - My family's life on both sides of the law by Robert Anthony Siegle. Deeply personal. A memoir. Sielge lives in NC with his family. Who is his family? Hell's Angels! 
 
1) WACKY TALES OF ANIMAL ANTICS - Sterly, best dog ever by Aidan Cassie

patricia feager: A Paradigm Shift Can Make You A Star - 07/22/18 08:17 AM
by Patricia Feager, 7/22/18
 
 
The pond-lily is a star
 
 
and takes the first place among lilies;
 
 
and the expeditions to her haunts,
 
 
and the gathering her where she rocks upon the dark,
 
 
secluded waters of some pool or lakelet,
 
 
are the crown and summit of the floral expeditions of summer
 
--- John Burroughs
 
 
Pondering pond life causes me to deepen my awareness of the uniqueness and importance of relationships with other people. Whether some people think it's all about the money, best technology, presentation, first impression, being first, competition, or something else, to me, without being real with people, nothing else seems to matter, any more. 
 
All of these things mentioned is important; … (19 comments)

Who have a book
Hath friends at hand,
And gold and gear
At his command;
And rich estates,
If he but look,

Who hath a book.
Who hath a book
Hath but to read
And he may be
A king, indeed.
His kingdom is
His inglenook-
All this is his
Who hath a book.

"Nothing Can Bring A Real Sense of Security 
Into The Home Except True Love"
--- BILLY GRAHAM
 
 
 
WHY NOT GET MARRIED & BUY A HOUSE?
Some people get married just to get away from the home they are living in now. Escaping the life you live, is never a good enough reason to get married. Find true love.
 
Others get married to get the type of life they think the other person can provide that they can't afford on their own. True love doesn't depend on others to give you what  you need and want. Find true love.
 
You can't make someone love you, … (22 comments)

CLASSIC
This 2017 Patriotic Corvette StingRay on display at Parkers Square in Flower Mound, TX, recently got me thinking about what motivates people? Clearly, the owner of this beautiful cherry red, fire engine red, or real red Corvette StingRay had a clear perception of style and the impact it has on others. In my mind, the true color here is assertiveness because the owner, a United States Coast Guard Retiree from Frisco, illustrated … (17 comments)
