My Visit with the Millionaire...   Yesterday, I received a nice visit from a fellow Active Rainer, the very famous, now “Millionaire” Active Rain Blogger… Todd Clark!   Todd and his family were on a camping vacation and he contacted me before he came to town.   They were driving through Idaho Real Estate and took a moment to stop by Exit 38 in Nampa and introduce themselves.   His family is very nice & I was especially happy to know he & his wife were creating such great memories for their three kids! What a fun time to be on the road at ages 11, 9 & 6!   We kept the visit short, but we have a new bond and an upcoming referral relationship with our real estate businesses!     Thanks for taking the time, Todd… and for the fun photo! Congratulations on over 1,000,000 points on Active Rain...

Tis the season I guess to help out the homeless...seems every where i go there are events that have the  homeless in mind!    We don't have as many home less in Nampa as some do...but in the Winter it is a bigger problem due to the lower tempatures.   We just simply don't have enough shelters with resources to help fontionelks out as much as is needed!  The Boy Scouts in Nampa Idaho had a food drive yesterday in conjunction with Albertsons Grocery stores.   They dropped off bags with a flyer last week!  I know a recent BSU game collected a whole lot of food...some thing like 70,000 pounds of food was collected!  At church today, our Pastor mentioned an upcoming program our church is hoping to set up!   In our area most shelters require folks to leave fairly early in the day and they are...

Today as I was going out and about a few times I passed Applebees in Nampa Idaho...I not iced that the parking lot was incredibly full...and I could see a waiting line of people who were going to eat!  I knew it was lunch time but this was not the norm!   As I passed by I noted on the Billboard...that Applebees was serving a free meal to all Veterans!    What a cool idea!   And it was very well received judging the line of patrons waiting to get into the restaurant!   I salute Applebees for showing their appreciation to our Vets...active or retired! And more importantly I salute our Military Men and Women...as well as the Veterans of previous wars!  We owe so much to you ....our freedom for one!!!  Thank you and God Bless You!!!

Today is Election Day....our right to choose who we want in office to represent us!  I know many have differing views on who should be elected...really this post isn't about who is the best person for the job....but rather a plea to everyone to exercise our Right to Vote!! It was fought hard for by our ancestors....and we shouldn't throw that gift away right?   If you don't know who to vote for or how to vote on legislation being changed...then ask!    Or Google it online to determine how you should vote....don't let ignorance be your excuse! I know that in our area the early voting was a lot busier than anticipated...which shows many people do care about what happens!   I don't know how the elections will end up....but as I have always been told by my Mom and Dad....if you don't vote t...

I've been happy to have my son home from SoCal this past week! He originally came home to help out with a Halloween Party that was made into a tribute/memorial for his grandfather who always loved to dress up and make the season a fun time! When he was here, we got to experience Broncos - Steelheads & Ridgecrest Golf Club... Tuesday night, Oct 26th we were able to attend the #3 Ranked Boise State Broncos play against Louisiana Tech on the blue turf in Idaho's Capitol city, Boise!       The following night, we joined thousands at the Qwest Arena for a great Hockey game with the Idaho Steelheads playing Utah. (our football is better than our hockey).       After two Halloween parties of fun and creativity, we just hadn’t spent enough time together.   Today, we enjoyed a crisp fall day wit...

Have you been wondering where the Nampa Chamber of Commerce moved?   They have recently moved to 315 11th Avenue South ...right across the street from the Brick 29 Bistro! Keep an eye out for the announcement of a grand opening open house in November!  This great new location is still in the heart of Downtown Nampa and should be easier to locate....a much more visible spot!   For more information please visit: www.nampa.com/ or call 208 466-4641

If you are hungry then you can have a bowl of hot turkey noodles or a bowl of chili!   The members of the church have been hard at work making home made noodles for you to purchase.   2 # bags will be available for sale. (I can testify that these are the best noodles around!!!) Don't forget to visit the Country Store for gently used goods donated by church members!   Hope to see yo...

An organization that is a wonderful bright spot in Nampa Idaho is Love Inc.    Love Inc is an organization that involves many of the area's churches in helping the financially troubled folks in Nampa Idaho.   Many different programs are offered to sponsoring churches and individuals...a talent survey is available....maybe you have child care skills...or automotive repairs skills...or even financial planning skills.    Or if it is easier to donate set items every month...such as a toiletry or food item ....then Love Inc might be the organization for you!   Groups of churches have banded together to provide the resources needed to help needy individuals.    Our chruch Nampa First Christian hosts several programs...including Heavens Household which provides house ware items to those trying...
