Today was our regular sales meeting day.  We had 2 guest speakers telling us about their products. The Newspapers are hurting for lack of advertising and they are now trying to make it more affordable for individual agents to use the papers services.  Next we had a home warranty company that came in to entice us to use their warranty company with our sales. Both are valid tools that we can use and I plan to do just that. Ginger of Southport

And it is about time. For the past 3 weeks, we have had either snow, sleet, ice or rain.  Today has been a glorious Sunday with a warm temperature.  It was a Day to go to Church, come home and have a delicious dinner and then to just visit with each other in the afternoon. It is what memories are built with.  I do hope that our grandchildren will look back on their childhood, remembering family days on Sunday with others in the family and friends. Hope you had a Sunny Day too...

I am stilll trying to be successful with AR and try new things a lot. I see where some of our folks get to have a featured post.  Is that measured from the content of the post, or the number of hits or what? I read them and think that they had written an exceptional post and enjoy them. Any hints or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Just wondering. Ginger

Active rain Points It is so much fun to see our points grow...from the beginning to what we have now. You can learn so much from your active rain associates. Many have really neat information that can give you a link or idea that you can then explore.  I feel that I am not alone and that there are other Active rain folks just like me, needing new ideas or remembering the old tried and true systems that have worked for along time. WE can learn from each other. Share..and I will too. Ginger of Southport

Being Santa... Today our office became Santa for a young Coast Guard Family that is struggling here during the Christmas Season.  We adopted two coast guard families and are having a ball...buying for the little children and their parents.  What an awesome experience.  One of my co-workers and I went to the home today and unloaded a car full of toys that were given by the folks in our office. If you really want to get into the Christmas Spirit...adopt  family..and share what you have with them with love and respect. Merry Christmas to all Ginger

  I just had to share this with you.. A low-budget jewel. Way cool   This is the new "wear your seatbelt" ad the UK is doing - started by some dude not hired to do it, but because the cause is important to him, he came up with this idea, and now it's being hailed across the world as a 'beautiful' commercial. And now the video has gone "viral" - which  means, has become so popular with the general public that people are forwarding it to friends/family on their own so quickly that it has spread all over  the world in a very short time.GO TO:   http://embracethis.co.uk  Ginger of Southport..

Yesterday, my husband picked a bucket of grapes, so this morning I am cooking them to make the juice for the jelly. These are Muscadine Grapes, so the jelly will be a lovely color of purple. Traditionally, we put the grapes in a large square plastic box and let each of the grandchildren stomp them for a bit.  It is the best way to get all  of the juice out of the grapes.  Could not get them all together to do this ..this year but they got stomped anyway. Tonight, we will add sugar and cook and put in to sterilized jars.  What great fun..and the taste is wonderful..   Hope you have a delightful day! Ginger of Southport

  Angel Food! Have you ever heard of Angel Food Ministries? In today's economic situation...I am sure that you know of someone who can benefit from this service. Go online to:  http://www.AngelFoodMinistry.com  and you may be able to help those less fortunate that yourselves.  It is a food service that is about half of the actual cost. I sent out an earlier email and learn that there is so much good going on from this program. Tell those you know that are in need and  then support this ministry. Think...someone you know needs this.

Annual Percentage Rate What is the Real Cost of Financing?   Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is a tool that consumers can use as a starting point to compare loan programs. However, it's important to keep in mind that APR is not a perfect system, and not all lenders calculate APR in the same way. While the Federal Truth-in-Lending Act does require any mortgage broker or lender to disclose APR to the consumer, there is no rule written in stone for calculating this number that each and every lender agrees upon. The point of calculating APR is to let the consumer know what the actual cost of their financing is in the form of a yearly rate. APR factors in certain closing costs and fees associated with the loan, and spreads this total over the life of the loan along with the actual note rate. T...

The Cape Fear Ski & Outing Club is a snow skiing and outdoor activity club that began many years ago in the Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach area.  The Club is an affilliate  of the Crescent Ski Council.  This  enables the club members to get great group discounts on ski packages.  This past year Steamboat Springs Ski Resort welcomed the Crescent Ski Council for the 25th year to their early December ski & race camp.  The clubs members are primarily in Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender County, but we also have members from Florida that enjoy skiing with our group.  One of the obstacles to building membership is that many retirees to our area have seen all the snow that they want to. We have organized many other activities for the enjoyment of our members.  We go out to eat together at ...

  "DON'T TOUCH THAT DIAL." That familiar broadcasting statement certainly applied to the markets last week, as the volatility continued and the markets changed direction quickly. Take a look at the chart below, which shows how home loan rates have climbed dramatically over the last several weeks. In fact, home loan rates are at their highest levels since the Federal Reserve announced their Mortgage Backed Security purchase plan at the end of 2008. While the chart below is just a rough indicator of present rates that require points and fees to be paid, it's clear to see the dramatic climb rates have taken in recent days. -----------------------Chart: Freddie Mac 30-Yr Fixed Rates As we've mentioned in recent issues of this newsletter, added supply has been one of the main culprits behin...

Bald Head Island is located in beautiful North Carolina.  The Bald Head Island Golf & Waterfront Community is a true golfing paradise. The island can only be reached by passenger ferry or private boat so you will not be dealing with crowds of tourist traffic and their passenger cars and trucks. The only real traffic you'll run into will be other golfers.  This course slithers around freshwater lagoons and dunes that overlook the ocean.  Don't slice your shot at playing Bald Head's spectacular golf course.  Signature Golf Packages can set you up with a golf experience of a lifetime.
