Diane was great she started arguing with the handler and in the meantime ...

Capture Complex Details forever with Mental Review... as some of my regular readers know, there is a book I love, it is called "Double Your Brain Power" by Jean Marie Stine. I have written posts before about this book.Periodically, I tend to share some of her tid-bits. I am a firm believer, that her information is spot on and very beneficial for those of us who are in the fundamental business of listing and selling real estate and need to recall information that might be complex.Now with that said:  how do you commit complex material to long-term memory?"Mental Review" is a strategy developed by Professor Matthew Erdelyi of the City University of New York. After 10 minutes of learning spend 5 minutes to review the information.Then the next day review it for another 2-3 minutes.Then afte...

Speechless Sunday: Have you ever seen a resting hummingbird? Well, how about two?... as I was cleaning the dishes (well it is Mother's Day you know) I saw these two birds from the kitchen window.I mentioned to Diane, that we need to put food out, since the birds are starring into our kitchen, clearly, they must be hungry.She said they were Humming birds. I did not believe her, but when they took off, I had to admit she was right. They were humming birds.They proceeded to fly to the lemon tree, and it is hard to see, but one of them decided to rest there for a photo opportunity.Hard to see but to the left of the top lemon the little guy is sitting on the branch about an inch and a half away on the photo.Hope you had a fun and relaxing Mother's Day weekend.  Wishing you a safe and healthy...

The Annual Food Drive: Second Saturday in May, Diane & I have been supporting this great cause for the past ten years. We are blessed and happy that we are well off and can help others.Every year the Postal Employees that deliver our mail come by and drop off the bag two days before it and in turn send a card as well.We in turn fill up the bag and put it out. Today I noticed that our regular mail carrier was not around. As Holly and I returned from our 5:30 pm walk the bag was still there. Across the street I saw the fill in mail carrier. I flagged him down; he said once he delivered the mail he would come around to pick up the bag.Around 8:30pm out of character the mail was delivered. 10:00pm on Holly's evening walk the bag was still on our front porch.What a shame, I said to Diane ear...
