The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she ...

  OK do I have you on this one?  It took me by surprise and I thought why not use this on in a post.  I have a partner who is very good at doing this.  She does this in a way I would not have but that’s her strength and I do not question her about it.  The meaning of (lim) to portray in words; de...

While I think we all strive to obtain this and most of us do there are some that just don't seem to get it.  They go off in their own little world and won't worry about it until they are under investigation by the Real Estate Commission.  I try and keep those people at arm's length if not a mile ...

  I just finished reading a book and in one of the chapters it dealt with problems.  While I’m not really a fan of problems after reading the section I want more.  We all run into problems from day to day and if you’re still in the business you have overcome them.  Don’t like problems then stay a...

  As I age it seems only yesterday when I was 16 and 18 how I wished and hoped that I would turn 21.  Now looking back it seems only yesterday I was 21 and how I would enjoy going back and turning some of the dumb things I’ve done around.  But anyway a person was asked what the most memorable thi...

He said what?? I don’t believe it. OK now that you have got that out of the way no need to type it in word cause it’s not there. Everyone knows someone who is this. It may be your parents, teachers, broker or whatever but you know someone who is this. The meaning of (syood) a person who affects k...

  I was at the weekly meeting and the principal broker brought up this word.  I must admit I never heard of it until today.    This caught my attention and when I looked it up it’s a wonder why I did not notice it earlier.  Want to impress your clients use this word in a sentence.  The meaning of...

  If you are married you have it, if you have a girlfriend, boyfriend you have it.  If you have ever been in love you have experienced it.  If someone loves you, you have it.  Now I guess you’re wondering what it is, well sunshine I’ll tell ya the meaning of (dwen’de) a special quality or charm t...

So those of you with inquiry minds do you know the meaning of this word before I give you the meaning? You do this without thinking with your contracts and clients. Come on put your thinking caps on and give it a try. OK I have given you enough time if you haven’t figured it out by now the meanin...

  If you do your job correctly this won’t happen.  Get your mind in high gear and try and think of the meaning before I reveal it.  Do you have it?  I take that back even if you do your job correctly this may still happen.  If you tell someone something and that person tells another by the time i...

I think I'm this but my wife doesn't think so.  For the most part I view life this way.  Don't get me wrong I have had those moments when it was not jocose.  I do put on a false front because inside I'm doing this all the time.  The meaning of jocose: joking or playful; humorous.  Wake up with a ...

We took this photo for a project we're working on. It's Loch Lomond in Bella Vista AR. The shot turned out too beautiful to not share.   Everything was perfect that day for the shoot - the sky, the weather, the colors in the trees.           -------------------------------------------------------...

I am tasked by realtors to go into all kinds of homes to photograph them. Most are beautiful homes and some even leave me with a little house envy. Around here right in the middle of the US we don't have any beach front property, very few grand cityscape views, but we do have our own marvelous to...
