leolinda bowers: After the Election: Where Did Those Political Terms Come From? - 11/20/12 08:13 AM
We have just completed one of our unique  American rites, the election of our President. Regardless of our politics, our freedom to vote is something we can all be grateful for on this Thanksgiving. Over the past few months we have been bombarded with political terms, sound-bites, and symbols, many so common we take them for granted. But where did they come from? Many have backgrounds quite different than what you might expect, some quite colorful. Here are a few of the most interesting.
Let's start with the acronym GOP. Anti-slavery activists formed the Republican party in 1854. They referred to it … (2 comments)

leolinda bowers: When the Tough Get Going - 04/12/12 01:34 PM
When life gives you lemons, go home and pick guavas. I was born and raised in Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. After many wonderful years in Phoenix Arizona, late 2011 I was diagnosed with phase3 of the big C. Getting a big C diagnosis can be considered the end, but not for this tough wahine from Hilo. I’ve come home to to Hilo rest, recharge, rejuvenate, and clarify my vision. My outlook has changed. I sold 71 homes just shy of 18 million sales in 2011.
 
 
Home is where your heart is, my heart is in Phoenix and in … (18 comments)

It's that time again, time to take and advertise with a new picture. I've been in real estate for five years, and have a new picture taken each year in business. After my first year in real estate I changed my picture. I received many calls from clients after they received Ken Meade's monthly report asking if I was still in business; my clients didn't recognize me. It's still me, just a different hairdo and dress. 
 
As I've aged my hair is no longer curly as when I was younger, thinner and with a little help, … (6 comments)

Wordless Wednesday ~ Sharing my Surprise

A few weeks ago I stopped by my desk only to be surprised.  A Sun City Grand client sent me a thank you note attached to this tropical bouquet.  Being from the Big Island of Hawaii, I especially appreciated my client's generosity and thoughtfulness in sending me Protea.  Hawaiian Protea tropical flowers are typically grown on the island of Maui, on the slopes of Haleakala Crater.

Reminiscing of Hawaii

Whenever I feel homesick for the Big Island, I pull out some of my favorite pictures.  This is Kalaniapia Waterfall on the Big Island of Hawaii north of Hilo. The cascading water is melodic at anytime of day or night. People frequently swim in the bottom of the falls. I may be away from Hilo, but Hilo is always in my heart.
