I think someone should tell the Sellers:  IT’S NOT 2005 ANYMORE.  THIS IS 2009 AND HOME PRICES HAVE PLUMMETED.  YOUR HOME IS NOW ONLY WORTH ABOUT HALF OF ITS OLD VALUE!!! Case in point:  Carriage Lake, a fine subdivision of upscale homes built under the rigorous care of D.R. Horton.  I inspected some of these homes while they were being built and I was impressed with the quality of construction.  I had two builders with me at the time and they both raved about the many positive things they observed.  The neighborhood is located less than five minutes to the Beach, in Little River, SC, where the property taxes are even lower, yet all the wonderful perks of North Myrtle Beach are within easy reach: the wonderful Aquatic Fitness, several shopping centers, Parks, entertainment and the Beac...

  You've worn the finish off your coffee table. All your kids are named Joe. Chuck Yeager thinks you need to calm down. Instant coffee takes too long. Juan Valdez named his donkey after you. People can test their batteries in your ears. People get dizzy just watching you. Starbucks owns the mortgage on your house. The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse. The only time you're standing still is during an earthquake. The Taster's Choice couple wants to adopt you. When someone asks 'how are you' you say, 'good to the last drop'. You buy milk by the barrel. You can jump-start your car without cables. You can outlast the Energizer bunny. You can take a picture of yourself from ten feet away without using the timer. You can type sixty words per minute with your feet. You can...

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.   This is the youngest you will ever be.  Duh!   Do not let your victories go to your head, or your failures go to your heart.    "Reality is merely an illusion, although a very persistent one" Albert Einstein   Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.   Those who criticize our generation forget who raised it…   If you are not there when I need you, I don't need you when you're there.   "Good leaders must first become good servants."

    This morning my first problem of the day had to do with the property management division and a rude client.  As the broker in charge, I had to intervene in an unpleasant situation.    I listened to this man talk very loudly for about 10 minutes.  It was apparent that he was not going to honor his word.  He was throwing my property manager under the bus, opening my company to a potential lawsuit.  Our legal advisors recommended severing ties with this person, which is exactly what I did.    After the conversation I wondered:  what makes people so rude and mean?  Are they so unhappy with their own lives that they feel compelled to infect everyone else's lives with their poison?  How do you recognize these personalities and stay away from them before developing any ties?    On the othe...

    It's hard to stand on shifting sand. It's hard to shine in the shadows of the night. You can't be free if you don't reach for help... And you can't love if you don't love yourself. There is hope when my faith runs out, ‘Cause I'm in better hands now...   For all of us with heavy hearts, missing loved ones lost...  This song will bring a tear or two, but somehow still manages to put it all in the right perspective.  Priscilla and Deirdre...  I'm thinking of you.  This song is for John...   Mirela

  You hear this song and it resonates with you.  You hum it in your head over and over again and you wish you knew who sings it or what the name of the tune is, so you can buy it.    I have help for you: if you can hum it into your computer's microphone, Midomi will find it for you.  It's that simple.    Midomi also lets you listen to samples of original recordings and then buy them for your own use.  You can participate in the forums and you can even create your own little musical following.   Go ahead and try it!  Let me know how you like it!   Mirela Monte, Your Myrtle Beach Connection                        Join the Optimist Group!

  Bad things happen in Life.  Sometimes very bad things happen in Life, unspeakable acts of horror occur in this World every day.  Human beings are capable of the most loving and extraordinary deeds, but they are also capable of the most horrific acts...    Life's strong winds sometimes push us up and down, and sideways.  The most amazing thing about human beings is not that they can be so kind and yet so cruel.  The most amazing thing about human beings is their resilience, their ability to survive unspeakable ordeals, brush themselves off and move forward with their lives.    Being optimistic doesn't mean that we lead such charmed lives that nothing bad ever happens to us; far from it!  Being optimistic means that IN SPITE of all the bad things that happen to us, we CHOOSE the prospec...

  If someone asked you:  "What are the two most powerful words in the English language", what would you say?   WHAT IF?   In my opinion, these are the two most powerful words.   Time and time again, we get caught up in our lives, and forget to dream and ask "What if?"   Life is meant to be lived.   If we open our minds to the possibilities, we can see past our limitations.  These two words help get us there.   What if I could stop starvation?   What if I was the president?   What if I found the cure for cancer?   What if I opened my own business?   "What if?"   These two words can inspire and motivate us.   The fondest memories we have as children, involve the ability to dream: "I'm going to be an astronaut when I grow up!"; "I'm going to be a firefighter, a race car driver, a teacher"....

                I am too anal to be disorganized.   I function best when everything is tucked neatly in its proper place.   My life has been a whirlwind for the past...  too long to count... and I can't seem to catch up!    When you fall behind in your organization, it seems to be contagious.  Like a disease, it spreads from file to file, drawer to drawer, filing cabinet to filing cabinet, closet to closet, room to room.  You get the idea...  Pretty soon, you don't know where anything is.   I've never gotten to that point.  I typically do something about it when it gets to the closet level...  This week has been my organization week.  It was designated as such, but then Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday happened...    I decided to take the bull by the horn, sort of speak, and make myself do...
