Remember that old adage:"No-one cares how much you know until they know how much you care"?                    WRONG! In real estate, prospects just don't care how  much  you say you care. You can tell them how much you care until you are blue in the face. All you will get is a blue face.  Take o...
On a stifling hot day like this, it is refreshing to go back and look at pictures I took last New Years Day.  My friend, Gail, and I took a drive north of Spokane, Washington to the Green Bluff area, which is known for it's fruit production.On that beautiful winter day, though, we were blessed to...

Last week, a friend and I packed up the car and headed to Walla Walla for some golf and wine tasting. Yesterday I wrote about the treat of seeing Pelicans fishing on our way to our destination. Little did we know our first golf game held a surprise in store too.We booked a tee time at the Walla W...
Last week on my way to Walla Walla, Washington for some golfing and wine tasting we were treated to a pod of pelicans fishing at Horn Rapids, near the Tri-Cities. This picture only shows two of the pelicans, because they were the closest for photo purposes.  There was a large pod in the distance,...

Walla Walla is kind of the wine tasting capital of Washington.  There are over 100 wineries in the area.  I've always been fascinated b...
