Last month we finally moved my mom to South Florida to live with us. Which meant we needed to clean out 50 years of memories from my childhood home. Some of those memories were sad, some were funny, and some I just shook my head on (like 25 years of National Geographic's that she kept for an additional 31 years). At one point I thought she might be a mini hoarder! Her motto must have been "put it in the basement, Kim will deal with it when the time comes".Well, the time came and I spent 10 days working on getting her ready to travel, picking out some things she needed, shipping some things that she wanted to keep, making arrangements with charities and family members that wanted things from the house. While juggling that, I interviewed agents to list the house, set up a grass cutter (2....

Senior RoommatesAGrowing Trend!  While procrastinating about working this morning, I came across an interesting article in my email from the Florida Realtors, "Latest trend in senior housing: Roommates", which on further investigation I see it came from the article "Seniors seeking Roommates: 'Golden Girls,' Please Apply". They talk about seniors renting out empty rooms in their homes to help them make ends meet, while providing much needed companionship.Personally, I think this is a great idea if it helps keep seniors stay in their homes for a little longer. I can see where it would work easily here in South Florida where you own a home with extra rooms to spare. For the seniors in a 55+ community or in a condo community, I could see where this could prove difficult (difficult but not ...

 Weltanschauung, not just any word,  but a word Rainer's practice!! When starting this post I had to look up what "Weltanschauung" meant. "Welt" means "world" and "anschauung" means "perception". Next, I found the link to "Weltanschauung" on ActiveRain. In the address bar for Weltanschauung is: (http://activerain.com/culture/weltanschauung) and in the center is "culture"! "World, Perception, Culture" these three words gave me an instant feeling of security and belonging! Once again I have reassured myself that I'm in the right place!After reading through the ten guiding principles and philosophy, of Weltanschauung, all ten are perfect. But the one that hits home for me is #10,  real estate professionals building a community focused on educating one another. It has a very nice ring to it...

 Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day!!      I never thought of a black cat as bad luck, but then again I never thought the number 13 was unlucky either. Probably because I was born on the 13th!Wish I weren't allergic to cats, because I would be picking a black cat to call my own. Personally, I think they're gorgeous!Anyone own a black cat out there? If you do, please share a picture with us!!!

Wow, has it really been 46 years since the Apollo 11 mission?July 20th, 1969, Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that took Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins (yes there were three astronauts) to the moon. This day marked the first steps by humans on the Moon.At 4:18 p.m. the lunar module landed in the Sea of Tranquility. At 10:39 p.m. Neil Armstrong opened the hatch on the lunar module.  At 10:56 p.m. Neil Armstrong spoke his famous quote "that's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."  At 11:11 p.m. Buzz Aldrin joined Neil Armstrong.Looking back on this, I've always felt bad for Michael Collins. Everyone remembers Armstrong and Aldrin, but everyone seems to forget to mention the person that remained in orbit while they landed on the moon.
