lake arrowhead properties: President Obama's decision to push new gun-control measures in the wake of the mass shootings in Tucson - 03/15/11 03:45 PM
President Obama's decision to push new gun-control measures in the wake of the mass shootings in Tucson, Ariz., is out of character and faces dubious prospects with a new Republican majority in the House. Though he omitted any reference to gun control in his State of the Union address, three of Obama's key advisers assured reporters the issue is on the president's to-do list.
"He's going to address this," senior adviser David Plouffe told NBC News. "It's a very important issue and I know there's going to be a lot of debate on the hill."
Added press secretary Robert Gibbs, "I … (1 comments)

Understanding TAX
Suppose that every evening, 10 men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:  The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.The fifth would pay $1. The sixth would pay $3.The seventh would pay $7.The eighth would pay $12. The ninth would pay $18.The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.So, that's what they decided to do....... The 10 men drank in the bar every evening and were quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, … (4 comments)

lake arrowhead properties: Thought for the Day - Friends - 10/25/10 06:10 PM
FRIENDS MUST BE GROWN TO ORDER-NOT TAKEN FOR GRANTED. Your friends will be what you make them. If you are the kind of friend who freely gives of your time and always shows consideration for others, your friends will be generous and kind. If you are the kind of person who takes your friends for granted, neither giving nor expecting much in return, you will attract friends who exhibit the same qualities. In friendship, like attracts like. Assess your behavior occasionally to determine what kind of friend you are. Are you the kind of person you would like to have as … (0 comments)

Your Lake Arrowhead Sellers, the best choice for a Realtor, with the Top Real Estate Company on the Mountain... Get The Sellers Advantage A NEGATIVE MIND SPAWNS ONLY NEGATIVE IDEAS. It is a physical impossibility for a negative mind to generate positive thoughts. When you allow yourself to dwell on the negative aspects of life, negative thinking expands to fill all of your thoughts until there is no room for positive thoughts to grow. It becomes an endless cycle. The habit of negative thinking generates more and more negative thoughts, which the mind attempts to turn into physical reality. The result … (1 comments)

The first day of summer officially kicks off today at 7:28 a.m. ET, the beginning of the summer solstice and the longest day of the year—at least in the Northern Hemisphere.
(Pictures: Summer Solstice Marked With Fire, Magic.)
The summer solstice is a result of the Earth's north-south axis being tilted 23.5 degrees relative to the sun. The tilt causes different amounts of sunlight to reach different regions of the planet.

A BLIND BOY PAID HIS WAY TO A MASTER’S DEGREE AT NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY BY TAKING NOTES ON CLASS LECTURES IN BRAILLE, TYPING THEM, AND SELLING COPIES TO CLASSMATES WHO HAD STRONGER EYES BUT WEAK AMBITION.

Your Lake Arrowhead Sellers, the best choice for a Realtor, with the Top Real Estate Company on the Mountain... Get The Sellers Advantage. THE PERSON WHO COMPLAINS THAT HE OR SHE NEVER HAD A CHANCE PROBABLY HASN’T THE COURAGE TO TAKE A CHANCE. Thomas Edison once observed that the reason most folks don’t recognize opportunity when it comes along is that it is often dressed in coveralls and look like work. Often opportunity involves a great deal of work and a willingness to take a chance on something, the outcome of which may be uncertain. Eventually you reach a point when … (1 comments)

On July 17, 1946, the temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees.  The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.  Henry was curious and invited them into his office.

Your Lake Arrowhead Sellers, the best choice for a Realtor, with the Top Real Estate Company on the Mountain... Get The Sellers Advantage.
 
OVERCAUTION IS AS BAD AS NO CAUTION. IT MAKES OTHER PEOPLE SUSPICIOUS. If you expect others to have confidence in you, you must conduct yourself in a way that inspires trust. Being so cautious that you never try anything new will damage your credibility just as much as will throwing all caution to the winds and trying any idea that comes along without thinking it through. (Most people equate any kind of extreme behavior with poor judgment.) … (1 comments)

IT TAKES MORE THAN A LOUD VOICE TO GAIN RESPECT FOR AUTHORITY. Margaret Thatcher once observed that being powerful is like being a lady: If you have to tell others you are, you aren’t. Truly great leaders gain respect by the way they conduct themselves, not by the loudness of their orders. You gain respect by respecting others. Follow the Golden Rule in your treatment of others, and you will win their undying loyalty. If you ever expect … (1 comments)

DON’T COVET THE OTHER FELLOW’S JOB IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY THAT GOES WITH IT. How often do you look at those around you and say, "I could do any of their jobs better than they can if I only had the opportunity," never realizing the price they have paid and the knowledge they have accumulated to earn the right to hold that position? It’s easy to be a Monday-morning quarterback and second-guess … (1 comments)

YOU WILL NEVER BE GREATER THAN THE THOUGHTS THAT DOMINATE YOUR MIND. If it’s true that you become what you think about most, it follows that the quantity and quality of success you achieve in your life will be in direct proportion to the size of your thoughts. If you allow your mind to be dominated by trivial matters, your achievements are likely to be unimportant. Discipline yourself to think about important things. Keep up with what’s new … (2 comments)

BIG PAY AND LITTLE RESPONSIBILITY ARE CIRCUMSTANCES SELDOM FOUND TOGETHER. It is possible to go through life without ever accepting any responsibility, but such freedom from the cares of the world comes at an enormous financial cost. If you make it a practice to go out the back door when responsibility walks through the front, you will also miss out on the opportunities that always accompany responsibility. In almost any vocation, profession, or calling, your remuneration is directly … (2 comments)
