UPDATE:  This contest has ended so all old links have been removed. It's been an interesting contest that I had no intention of joining because I knew I wouldn't have a chance.  But then Eric Blackwell decided to form a team for the Greatest Real Estate Agent in the World seo contest and I figure...

My husband isn't the most romantic guy in the world and I think he just got lucky with this particular bouquet.  I have no idea where he got it from (I'm assuming our local grocery store), but I just had to share what, in my memory, is one of the prettiest bouquets I've ever received.  And it was...
UPDATE:  This contest is closed and I've removed all dead links.   There is a contest going on that aims to cause some networking and some search engine optimization (SEO) education.  The contest is the brain child of Eric Bramlett, an AR member.  Morgan Carey, of Real Estate Webmasters (REW), th...
