Happy Patriot's Day on September 11, 2014  A day of Remembrance In the United States, Patriot Day, observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance occurs on September 11 of each year in memory of the 2,977 people killed in the 9/11 attacks. A bill to make September 11 a national day of mourning was introduced on October 25, 2001 that requested the President designate September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day". President George W. Bush signed the resolution into law to proclaim September 11, 2002 as the first Patriot Day and each year to follow. In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, President George W. Bush proclaimed Friday September 14, 2001, as a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims of the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001. WE MUST NEVER FORGET! ♥T...

 Google Authorship is Axed by Google Inman News and Forbes recently confirmed that Google has pulled the 'Google Authorship' citing that they had determined it was ineffective for it users. It was first started in 2012 and only 30% of the users had taken advantage of it since.  John Mueller, Webmaster Trends Analyst for Google, stated they had observed that the information wasn't as useful as they had hoped and may have distracted from the results. After months of consideration, Google made the decision to stop showing authorship. Mueller said removing authorship generally doesn't seem to reduce traffic to sites nor did it increase clicks on ads. This is good news for your search ranking. Mueller also said the pictures already on the site would not be removed.  Authorship as we all know...

Google+ Limits the Number of Friend Requests Daily   When I switched from my primary email address on gmail to the new one that Keller Williams set up for us, I started a new Google+ plus account.  My older account has 1,669 friends in  my circle but the new one has 88. So I changed the settings and started building my numbers in my 'Circle of Friends". Yesterday, I got this message box that read "You have exceeded the number of friend request for today. You can come back tomorrow and add more". I tried to do a screen shot of this red/white box but it would disappear when I hit the Preview button.   Please click on the link and add me to your Google+ Circle of Friends.   Thanks for Reading my Real Estate Blog.......   CalBRE #01492138 Keller Williams Realty–Women's Council of Realtors® ...

Do You Use the Facebook Graph Search for Real Estate I remember a few years ago when I would be on Facebook and looking for friends or prospective clients and would have a terrible time finding them sometimes. And then if you looked up someone with a common name, you would finally get 50+ but the thumbnail picture was so tiny that you couldn't tell if that was the person or not.   For the past few months Facebook has made it a lot easlier to find people or places. You type in a name or area (Riverside) and the search comes up. But then just below it, it will say Photos of Riverside, People who live in Riverside. Here many names show up with big photos  so this is a good way to search and set up a specific farm area. So whether you use Facebook for personal contacts or for business searc...

US Coast Guard Protects Sea Life as Well as People        I thought this video was amazing considering this sea turtle was approximately 800 pounds. Most of us are nature lovers and this type of rescue is so rewarding for the enviroment. This sea turtle was tangled in fishing nets which is a big problem to sea life: sea turtles, sharkes, whales,etc.   Thanks for Reading my Real Estate Blog.......

Just like the Movies....Bogart and Bacall Together Again   Lauren Bacall  (1924-2014) met Humphrey Bogart on the set making a movie in Hollywood in 1944. They were married in 1945 and had 2 children before Bogart died of cancer in 1957. Bacall married Jason Robards in 1961 and had one child but the marriage did not last very long. Bacall gave an interview several years ago and said Humphrey Bogart was the love of her life.  Together Again......Just Like in the Movies

Naked Photo in MLS Discussed at Real Estate Convention  This past weekend, I attended a national convention with over 300 attendees. One of the last speakers was discussing Technology and Facebook tips. She also discussed what not to put on social media sites or what will show up when you don't want it to.  Then the speaker mentioned the 'Naked Realtor Photographer' taking a picture in the bathroom and later updated into the MLS. The room was full of excitement and chatter. Since most of us had iPads or laptops, we were logging in to see the 'Naked Realtor'  photo and yes it was everywhere on the internet. Of course we all got back on target about a minute later but you could see how startling this was to a room full of Real Estate Agents so not surprising this photo went viral to the p...

Am I the Only One Who Didn't Know About the Increase in Comments?   Now I now it should not make a difference, but I think it is exciting to get points up to 20 comments. I always go over my 10 as I get carried away and totally enjoy commenting but it is great to now get points for 20 Comments.  I see that we get Blog Like Points (8) per click but not sure of how many we get per day. I clicked on 9 and got points for all. Then there is the new Like Click on the Comments. This is such a cool feature and I am so excited. I like Facebook but this is even better. Tonight I had (16) clicks so maybe the limit is 20 to get points for.  I know getting points is not the reason to do it but it surely makes it fun. Does anyone know what the maximum is for the Blog Likes and Comment Likes? Thanks f...

🎂 With Modern Technology, you Cannot Forget or Hide Your Birthday Even if you Try    In the past, we would normally get a few birthday cards in the mail or your friends at work would plan to take you out for for lunch on your special day. But this month I had a few surprises and thought I would mention some of my surprises. First of all my bank, who has been my bank since I was 16 years old, wished me a 'Happy Birthday' last week. I went to the ATM machine and after logging on, the screen showed a big birthday cake and said "Happy Birthday Kristin" which surprised me and I said out loud "What...how nice". Funny thing, there was a customer waiting behind me and I wonder what she thought. Just before I logged out and took my card, it wished me Happy Birthday again. I know that the bank ha...
