Just thought I'd share these Words of Wisdom from Nick Baur who sends these to us every week.      I heard a great quote today:     If you're not satisfied with 1/2 the results, then don't give 1/2 the effort.     So many times in my career I've just 'gotten by' or accepted a result, or told myse...
Anyone else feel compelled to help this promising blogger?  I don't think he's really given the RAIN enough time to make such a rash decision and quit after just a few months?  So sad. I started on this journey here on Active Rain back on December 30th of this year. I gave it a valiant attempt, b...
It was a Great Spring day to have a celebration!   After last weekend when we had over a foot of  snow, today  it was a balmy 69 degrees! I think maybe spring has finally arrived!  The company was great, as was the food and this fantastic cake and TASTY PEEPS!  Truth be told I might be the only p...
A full 5 days after Spring had officially arrived, we get our biggest snowstorm (13 inches!)  Might not seem like much for those of you in the Northern areas, but we have seen this much snow since 18 inches in 1982!  The really amazing thing about it is that this time last Spring, it was 83 degre...
I had a disturbing incident last week.  I sent an email and left a voice msg. to a Loan officer who had not been with the company for several days!   These emails and the and phone calls were not being sent to whoever the files were transferred to.  This was a L O who had been slow to answer emai...
This is an excellent post I found from last year by Nancy Hankin.  She provides a great link on what to do if your email account gets hacked.   There seems to be a multitude of real estate scams lately, and just as frightening is Email Hacking. Both can cost you financially and emotionally. Many ...
   Yes, the crazy web-footed people were actually swimming today!  It's been a wild temperature swing in Missouri this week. It hit 70 degrees on Monday, just enough to thaw the little pond.  I didn't grab the camera fast enough to catch all of them, but abut 10 seconds before this shot, all of t...
One of my associates alerted me to a scam their alderman in St. Louis had told them is being perpetrated primarily on the elderly residents in some St. Louis neighborhoods.   This group has one member knock on the front door, presents themselves as a utility or construction worker, or real estat...
A truly worthwhile cause that helps the needy, disabled, and seniors with their utility bills in the St. Louis Region.  There will be celebrity greeters at local Hardee's Restaurants for the annual  Hardee's  "Rise and Shine for Heat" fundraiser during breakfast hours.   Here's a link  to their s...
I saw this parked outside the police dept at our county seat.  Must belong to a cop,  not valid plates for Missouri on any state that I know of.  But I got a kick out of it!  I have to say, I really liked the movie but this guy must be a super Forest Gump fan!
