It is 12:51 EST and I am a very happy camper. I will be on my way to Remax People Realty to update my contracts. Hubby is sleeping on the futon and Stephen is taking a break from being the Minion Blur (translated: sleeping in his crib). Before I go into the office, I am going to sneak out with my laptop and head on over to one of my favorite foodie paradise spots on Queens Blvd: Cocina Latina. Lunch is from 11:30 - 3:30, so I am making a bee line for some slow roasted chicken in their famous secret sofrito sauce served with rice casserole, greens and sweet plantains. Yum!

I plan on enjoying some of my favorite writers while dining out because they have wireless Internet. I love foodie paradise spots with wireless Internet access. It give me the option to continue working or having a little play time while taking a break. Today's lunch line up includes:

"Aquiring The Golden Egg," where my girlfriend C. Sally Cheeseman tells us about closing her first Bank Own Property yesterday. You will benefit from her outstanding outline of some of the details involved and how she usually goes beyond to help a client.

"Enough. Blog Action Day," is a wonderful post my girlfriend Chris Fisher composed concerning writing a blog when she discovered her local crisis center ran out of food and had to close their doors on a Tuesday. Chris cleaned out her cupboards and confessed she felt really bad that she didn't do more on an ongoing basis. She makes a vow which inspired me to make a personal promise to myself as well. There is a quote from Gandhi near the end, "You must be the change you want to see in the world." How cool is that? Awesome!

While I am at lunch today I am going to be thinking about what I can do as a Realtor to help make a positive and lasting change for someone. I hope I can come up with a worthwhile random act of kindness not just for today, but every day.

I hope C Sally C and Chris inspire you, the reader, to do something nice for someone else every single day the way that they have inspired me to try...

I love being a Work-At-Home-Mom (WHAM). You can get a lot done if you try.

Looks like a cute place.  It made me think of last summer when my daughter was headed off on a weekend get a way and she had to email a paper in by 5 p.m.  She called the town ahead to different eating places to see if they had wireless Internet.  The Mickey D's answered "McDonald's, can we help you?" 

Abigail "Do you have wireless Internet?"

Mickey D's : "Uhm, you called McDonald's we have big macs"

Abigail could not respond so she hung up and ended up finding a Starbucks on her Motorola pearl and going there to email her paper with time to spare.

C - looks like I will have to make it there sometime in the future. You have my mouth watering, especially from the dishes you posted from this place on my birthday. But, not complaining, I have mentioned my favorite Mexican place (where we are dining tonight) several times. Unfolrtunately, they don't have wireless internet.

Morning C,

I love get away places that afford me the opportunity to continue working in a more relaxed setting while enjoying great food and plentiful eye candy. This place looks like one that I would enjoy.

Tammy, some people just don't get it (LOL). You will bring in more regulars customers if you afford them the opportunity to continue to work or taking a fun break. Some of the NY Cabbies drive around with their laptops on the front seat. In between pick ups and drop offs they surf the net checking on investments, watching the news, IM each other, etc. Some stay connected by talking on the telephone through their Internet connection. It's a whole new world... :-)

Wow C, thank you so much for including me in this post!  I am honored.  And thank you for making me hungry at only 10:23 am (CA time).  : )  I don't know where to find rice casserole, greens & sweet plantains, I'm going to have to look for recipes instead.
