seo redlands: Gidget says African Violets are so Pretty & Smell Good Too - 02/21/12 07:08 AM
My mother and grandmother both loved African Violets so I guess it was a given that I would love them too. They last for a long time with very little attention sitting in my kitchen.  Gidget is my African Violet Inspector. I guess my new plant passed inspection!

 
African Violets seem to be very popular with many. Many cities have African Violet Societies and it is fun to go and see the absolutely perfect ones. Sometimes they have them for sale too and then you know you are getting a truly healthy plant.

I'm an experienced Realtor but after years with another broker, I went to Keller Williams over a year ago.  Recently Keller Williams came out with a new month long training program so in January, I signed up for the 20 day class called IGNITE. I enjoyed the class and even taught the class two days. Last Tuesday we had a really nice graduation and it was a full house. Many new agents but many like me, just looking for an update. Our group had 13 offices from Riverside, San Bernardino, and LA County. It was a nice way to end the month long class. I learned a … (12 comments)

Congratulate me as I just passed the 200,000 point milestone. I am so excited. I have been thinking this week what I have learned in the past 9 months.
1.     Our Community- ActiveRain is a great community of professionals with different backgrounds and different careers. We integrate smoothly and learn from each other.
2.    Making New Friends- We have friends all over the county and beyond. It’s like learning experience and a visual tour all in one. Members post pictures of lands we have never been to and it is exciting to update our wish list of places to visit.

This morning we had a big storm but by this afternoon we had a slight break. The rain stopped and the sun peeked out from behind the clouds for a few minutes. I spotted a lot of hungry birds trying to find food before the next leg of the storm came rolling in. They seemed to all be fighting over a spot on the bird feeders. I have never seen such a crowd.

This bird was making a lot of noise and just before it flew off, another yellow bird showed up in the tree. They did not wait for … (10 comments)

 Every day you should challenge yourself to do better today than yesterday, strive to always do your best and surround yourself with others who believe in doing their best as well.

Run away from toxic people who want you to fail. Instead, surround yourself with others that are positive influences and want you to succeed.

Came home from work today and my Chihuahua, CoCo, was upstairs barking and growling. So I run upstairs and here she is barking at the birds in the backyard.

She was so excited as it appeared to be about 10-15 birds flying around and standing on the wall near the feeder.
 
Then as I got closer to the window I noticed my other Chihuahua was outside barking at the birds too. By the time I ran downstairs, Tootie was on the wall and of course the birds had flown off.

Invitation sent to become a Member of ActiveRain. I sent Felix an invitation a few days after he had signed up in January 2012. What a coincidence!

Felix is a great Title Rep., a hard working professional, meets and greets with all the real estate agents/ brokers in the area and is just a really nice guy.
