life lessons: WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO STOP YOU - 09/10/14 03:11 PM
I know the story of an aggressive unscrupulous man who insisted on his ways under all conditions making many miserable (including himself) as he went about acting out wildly his personal and professional life. Because he had such a powerful presence, was verbally abusive and an expert at intimidation, he got his way to the detriment of all. But then, something happened which allows one to consider from many points of view
BE STILL AND KNOW
Perhaps you know of or have dealt with someone like this. Well, this man got into a situation that led to him losing both his legs and laid up in a hospital … (5 comments)

life lessons: HANDYMAN IS GETTING TO BE A RISKY BUSINESS - 07/21/14 08:54 AM
Well they are doing sting operations where they have a handyman come out to your place to bid on work and if the work exceeds a certain dollar amount and you are not a contractor but a handyman, then you are in for some surprise. It is against the law and comes with heavy penalties too. You are charged with a crime and subject to enormous fines...whoa
THERE'S A REASON
Becoming a licensed contractor requires knowledge and testing so that when work is performed, it is done to a certain specification and standard of outcome. Imagine a handyman building homes for sale? Does that thought sit well … (2 comments)

life lessons: HAVING A SEAT WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS - 10/05/13 10:37 AM
We all remember the game of musical chairs. What joy and excitement. I remember when this was first introduced to me a child and I don't get things right away sometimes so I just went along with everyone standing up and marching around some chairs. Hey, marching as a kid is fun no matter what and the music helped. However, when it stopped and everyone sat down rather quickly, I just stood there
CRUSHED BEFORE WE GOT STARTED
I was out of the game. WHOA. My first thought is what game? I then had to leave the area and watch others and then I … (5 comments)

life lessons: HAVE YOU EVER BEEN KICKED UNDER THE TABLE - 09/23/13 04:36 PM
True tales from my youth include; I used to get kicked, under the table (on both legs) all the time around the kids, guests and business meetings. First time it happened, I thought it was an accident. Somebody just stretching out. No Big Deal. After several times, I realized communication was coming in, but for what I did not know. I just knew that the look or tone coming from the supposed kicker was serious as the kicking was
I MARRIED A KICKER
After the meeting/meal and rubbing my legs where it was bruised, I inquired and was told things that … (11 comments)

life lessons: LET IT BE DONE TO YOU AS YOU BELIEVE - 08/13/13 08:03 AM
This remains one of the most important MUST KNOW things here on this planet and in a persons journey. You see things just don't happen. Long before something comes up on your radar screen, it is out there roaming around whether it be success or failure and your beliefs one way or the other summon it. The power of ones stance in life, their being is made up of their beliefs...Spend some time examining yours
BELIEVE THIS
Thoughts come and go all day long. Where thoughts come from is a fascinating subject in itself but for another post. Whatever thought crosses … (6 comments)

life lessons: THE POWER OF LEMONADE COMES FROM LEMONS - 12/30/12 10:59 AM
The lessons in life are more often than not disguised as other things whether they be good or bad which of course remains subjective. Life is a very personal and exclusive experience for everyone and will continue to be. People and their experiences may be similar but never duplicated. So what do we do when life lemons are out and about?
THE LESSONS AND LEMONS COME TO ALL
It would be nice and considered a perfect world where people could be approached and given feedback and input and that being sufficient modify or change their behaviors for the good of all. However, that … (9 comments)

life lessons: THE MESSAGE VERSUS THE MESSENGER - 05/21/12 02:28 PM
How often do we all take the bait...the low hanging fruit and succumb to the temptation of the moment. The result? The messenger has been shot or taken hostage. The message goes unheeded. If we can reverse this or even better just observe it all, change would make its way to whatever is going on. The first change would be on how we handle the situation at hand
MESSAGE COMING IN
Thirty years ago, I once turned away an all cash buyer because they didn't look, sound, or act like one. What made it worse is they didn't speak good English and … (2 comments)

life lessons: TEXTING WHILE DRIVING YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING OR HAVE A DEATH WISH - 10/03/11 11:30 AM
 Margaret my esteemed colleague suggested I do a piggy back blog (sort of) on her subject of driving while texting. New Law in Maryland..No Texting....No Emailing While Driving! We Need to Get the Word Out! http://actvra.in/kCr caused me to comment as follows..
TEXTER SIGHTED AHEAD
   When someone driving in front of you slows down or does the side to side car sway, you know it someone who is learning to text and drive or it is someone that is no good at it. Perhaps in time this person may or may not perfect their new found belief..Meanwhile, we are now … (8 comments)

life lessons: MAY THIS DAY REWARD YOU ACCORDINGLY INVEST HEAVILY IN IT - 09/16/11 12:02 PM
What you put into something will determine what you get back. Life is as simple as that. Invest in yourself and others and watch and see what comes pouring forth. Life is to be lived, explored, sampled, and shared. Up the ANTE on this and all you did was improve your own experience. It doesn'tmatter what your circumstances are either
THE WONDER AT WORK
Let this one thought permeate your whole being. Your self, the essence within you is powered by no less than something so great that it has no equal. It only requires that you use it to know … (2 comments)

life lessons: PAPER...SCISSORS AND.... ROCK - 07/18/11 07:02 PM
It is interesting to note that each one is a power unto its self depending on when it comes up and what it comes up against. Think about this. Substitute people for the different parts played and it becomes a different game. A person can be paper, scissors or rock and apply that to circumstances and to then prevail. Maybe it is not a game?
PAPER... SCISSORS AND... ROCK =PEOPLE
A person who is harmless and unassuming yet functional can be paper. You don't even look twice at it or concern yourself. But it can win against the rock every-time. However, … (0 comments)

life lessons: GIANT ROOTS MAKE WAY THROUGH HARD ROCK...WHAT DO WE LEARN HERE..? - 07/04/11 06:10 PM
Observe the picture below...It speaks well and invokes within us a response. Mine had to do with the principal of time. There are three converging points of view here. The mountain, the root and the observer of it all, but who is observing who? Each moves in and out of its own time and makes for an interesting observation/conservation
TIME IS DIFFERENT FOR ALL
The mountain is probably millions of years old...let that sink in. Millions of years...Then, near by, literally plants itself and then roots its way to life. No excuses, nothing to stop it or come against it, it … (4 comments)

life lessons: WHAT ONE PERSON CAN DO....ANOTHER CAN DO - 06/29/11 12:33 PM
Stop and think about this. Life has no boundaries on you and all is available and accessible to explore and sample. Here, in the United States of America, we are encouraged even further to live life, have liberty, and pursue happiness which is different for each one of us. How wonderful then it is to be here and alive and have access to it all...
WE ARE PRIVILEGED
What is it you want to be when you grow up is not a question asked and answered in many parts of the world. It is not available to quite a few people … (6 comments)

life lessons: WHY WATCH TELEVISON..? BE A REAL ESTATE AGENT INSTEAD...its a great channel! - 06/29/11 12:06 PM
I have been enjoying being a Real Estate agent for over 33 years now...This business never fails to amaze me because no two transactions are a like and the people involved are some of the most interesting characters you are ever going to meet. Unlike TV or the movies, REAL Estate has REAL people in it and it just delivers
PRINCIPALS AND CLIENTS
I thoroughly enjoy the public meaning my principals and clients. Here we all get together to discuss big business and everyone has their way of going about it. The business in and of itself is not difficult, but … (8 comments)

life lessons: STARTING OVER...THE WORDS ARE SCARIER THAN THE ACTUAL JOURNEY - 06/02/11 01:18 PM
Many many years ago, I got my first taste of defeat. I managed to always pay my bills on time, buy the house, have the three cars and the family that goes with it. I was living the American Dream. Then, it happened. I lost everything literally over night....This is definitely one frightening experience to meet and go through
IT HAPPENED TWICE...BUT I LEARNED
The first time this happened to me, I wept for three months which looking back really helped me to clear my mind and deal with the stress of it all. Slowly, old beliefs fade out or away … (70 comments)

life lessons: KIDS SINGING SONGS...KNOWING THE WORDS IS ANOTHER MATTER...LIFE TOO - 06/01/11 04:34 PM
I saw a video the other day of little little kids singing in an auditorium. It brought back memories. Who didn't sing at school in groups when they were growing up? What I laughed about was on the parts between the chorus, the kids were mouthing the words or substituting humming or what they thought it was with noises...
THEY DON'T KNOW THE WORDS
The little children don't see it as wrong either. They are just buying time until they can get to the chorus part. Then, everyone sings loud and with exuberance until the next stanza. Then, teacher usually kicks … (4 comments)

life lessons: SPIRIT OF THE LAW... VS... LETTER OF THE LAW....and my dear wife too - 05/27/11 01:17 PM
My wife and I are outside this morning working around our 1/3 acre when a traffic officer writes up my neighbor for parking incorrectly on street sweeper day. First of all, we have lived here for years and never seen this happen. Second, the sign directing this is around the corner from the house and third, it is a rural area with little or no curbs
GUILTY..BUT GO LIGHTLY HERE
Look, we are all guilty of something or another. Where do you want to start on this subject? I understand that the law has powerful legs and can march successfully into … (6 comments)

life lessons: ROD SERLINGS...THE TWILIGHT ZONE.....DID WE JUST CROSS OVER.....? - 05/23/11 09:27 AM
I remember when this fist came on and I caught it. I thought I was just watching some 1/2 hour entertainment until I could find something else. When the episode ended with a twist, I was flabbergasted. I couldn't wait to tell someone ...Hey, I just saw a show that was so good and the ending is like something I have never seen...
I'M IN IT NOW
You see, I just crossed over into the Twilight Zone...That was the whole point. It is a little snap shot of a persons life where things are not what they appear to be. It … (7 comments)

life lessons: FREE TIME....no, it costs the user and the receiver...TIME - 05/16/11 09:53 AM
We live life by schedules. We have routines and we follow them. It starts innocently enough when we first get out of bed. From there, we don't stop until we end up in bed again. In between, we spend TIME. One of the most valuable and underrated as well as misspent dynamics known to man
WAIT-UP!
First off, TIME waits for no one....NO ONE! The clock is ticking while you are sleeping, thinking or making hay. It is not something that we spend wisely either. Maybe that is because TIME is spread out over TIME.
WHO YOU?
It is not a … (0 comments)

life lessons: FATHER KNOWS BEST NOT.....FARTHER KNOWS BEST - 05/11/11 10:27 AM
People make the world go round....crazy people make it go round faster while calm people slow it down. I prefer to sip wine and not gulp it. I chew food instead of swallowing it and I like to finish a thought without interruption as much as I like to allow the other person to do the same.
GET ALONG OR GET IT WRONG
You can piss people off or learn to navigate through the different personalities. You can speed and get caught or cruise and get there without consequences. You can master the white lie, or you can dispense with lying … (5 comments)

life lessons: MENOPAUSE...(men a pause)...LED TO MAN APPLAUSE - 04/07/11 09:45 AM
Well I made it...I am alive and well. You see one of my biggest accomplishments in life was getting through MENOPAUSE while my wife was going through it. In case you thing this doesn't apply to you, think again. All parties are affected and it is no respecter of persons either
HOW IT ALL STARTED...
I remember my wife reporting about the hot flashes. I am cold, she is hot. I get hot she is cold. She wants this, I want that. I say hello and she says; don't talk to me that way. OK, I am married so certain things … (18 comments)
