So another year begins and just like many of you....I made a New Year's resolution to lose weight.  I think things are different this year, because I feel more motivation this time around.  They say you can't do it until you're ready....well I am finally ready.  I don't want this body anymore.  I...
I was Book MeMe'd a while back and didn't have anything to write about in that MeMe.....because I don't ever read books.  I use to when I was in high school.  I could read a book in a day or two over the weekend.  I use to read all the time, but then just stopped.It's been many years since I have...

I had family from Michigan come down for Christmas and we decided to drive down to Key West & Miami since none of us had been there.  We had *so much fun*. We saw some very interesting folks there....LOL....You could just sit for hours and people watch and be entertained.  There was a guy riding ...
Watch a PowerPoint presentation by Saul Klein, the new CEO of Point2, about where he thinks the future of real estate is heading to.  It is a long presentation and takes a few minutes to load, so be patient.  This is something you *need* to watch.  Everyone needs to watch it.Are you ready for the...
