Change is really one and the same with my middle name 'Banana'!  When I think back and reflect to my early days in the business I have to smile at the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of changes I've make due to the Internet and beyond. The picture above was taken at my first real estate compan...
Let me tell you, it's a big day when Gary decides to take the 'boys' with him to his second home, Home Depot!  When he drives in the parking lot and goes to get a cart they know what's coming and they start barking and wagging their tails.  First he arranges a little pad in the cart so it's easie...
Monday's Power Thought - FOCUS! We humans forget, at times, the power of FOCUS.  Our Fur Babies, on the other hand are always FOCUSED when they want something!  Last night I just happened to catch this photo of  Barney and Norman focused intently on their 'Daddy' getting their dinner ready.  They...
It's quite fitting that I'm saying Merry Christmas Rainers as it's raining cats and dogs here in Phoenix today.  As in pouring down rain!  I can't remember a Christmas Eve or Christmas day that's ever been raining!!  I feel for all those folks that are in town to visit relatives and enjoy the sun...

I'm am very happy that ...
Not sure quite where to start with this post as it's  about a  blessing as well as  a sad time. Deborah the lovely lady in pink. is very near her end of life as I type.  Her husband is the guy looking intently at her with a happy smile.  These two met years ago at a network function we hosted at ...
 Meet Norman!  Our newest member of the family!  A family that was moving out of state was not able to take him with and wanted to find a forever home for this sweet little pup!  He's a 2 1/2 year old Shih Tzu and yes his name is Norman!  The little girls in his first family named him after a car...
Phoenix is a fabulous place to be during the fall season!  The weather is perfect, the sun is shining and it's fun to see the fall decorations all around town.  Truth be told, I secretly pull out a few fall decorations in early September just to get the party started!And speaking of parties we he...
Being happy is easier than you think if you follow this easy recipe.  Ok maybe having all the patience you need to deal with 'whatever or 'whoever' is having a tough day or week can be a bit trying.  Or not. I was fortunate to learn and model "To Think Is To Create' at an earlier age.
