"Make It A Special Father's Day!"           Westminster, CO - HAPPY FATHER's DAY!!   This is the time of the year that we get to acknowledge ALL the Fathers out there!! I have decide to address my Siblings, and Honor their devotation and dedication to Fatherhood!   This photo is representative of how "Brothers in Arms", would take a picture to Honor their relationships and their causes in Life's events! Notice the crossing of the arms and the hand on the other's knee next to them.  This was a subtle way to signify the "Brothers in Arms" attitude and way of life!!   It did not always mean "blood relatives" and could be referenced to a certain cause! I can not think of a better Cause, than to Honor ALL Fathers in the past and present!   Relatives of our Great GrandFather, George Washingto...

"Develop Confidence To Create Success!" Westminster, CO - Every Now and Then, you come across a very important Speech that can give a person that "AH HA" moment!!  Recently, I was sent a youtube video of a speech done many years ago, by Art Williams. For those of you that do not know Art, he was a football coach that become one of the wealthiest Insurance company owners in the country!!  His encouragement is fantastic and his belief in the philosphy of "Just do it", is tremendous!  Enjoy his speech!      I certainly hope you can learn from this video, how powerful your abliities can take you once you develop the "mindset" that anything is possible with the right attitude and confidence!!   "Success is developing the right attitude"     Please, LIKE my Fan Page at http://facebook.com/mil...

Posting a listing on Facebook can result in interesting comments.  One of my FB friends shared my recent listing of a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in Westminster for $165,000 on her page, and these are the comments that popped up:   OMG, in CA you can buy a corner in someone’s garage for this money.   SO funny, and here I am thinking holy wow! That’s so much for such a small place!  Our 4 bed, 2 ba + office + game room (over 2200 sq ft) house will be listed at 135K. Crazy the price differences around the country! Just amazing   In SF 2-bedroom apt is $2,000,000.  In Palo Alto no house is sold under $1 million and it can be a tiny and very old hut. Of course, in rural areas far from SF, you can buy a beautiful home for $300-400 thousands.  I am just talking about SF area.   *gasp!! How do...

"An Anniversary To Remember!"     Westminster, CO - Today is a day for me to remember what happend exactly 8 years ago.  Not that I really do need a reminder, but I will share it with others! On May 25, 2005, while playing "Men's Doubles" in the USTA Tennis League match in the Parker area, southeast of Denver, during the 1st set I was having a heart attack.  NO, it was not how bad I was playing, it was an actual heart attack!! After, an eventful ride with the paramedics, who got lost in the school parking lot while trying to get me to the Hospital, I did finally make it into surgery in about 45 minutes after the 911 call was made!!  I was very impressed, while having a very discomforting chest and forearms pain!!  We arrived at Skyridge Medical Center, they were fantastic folks, there!!...
