 I snapped these photos while driving on Christmas eve in Owensboro, Kentucky Well, I actually just clicked them through my front windshield, so they may not be the best quality.    The sky color was so unusual and I had to try to capture it rather quickly since cars were whizzing by so quickly! You would think they were in a hurry because Santa was coming..... You really had to be there to experience the unusual hues of purple, pink, blue and yellow skies!   Wishing you many sunny Skies in 2009!

Overview The Big Picture Even the most astute commercial real estate investors are no doubt perplexed as to what strategies and tactics will best serve them in 2009...So, what makes 2009 different than any other year for real estate managers and investors? A recession, a capital and credit crisis, a new administration, an unfavorable public opinion of the real estate market, and perhaps what is the toughest competitive environment in decades. Will 2009 be a banner year for principals and sponsors or will it be a total bust? I suspect that for many who read this paper, that the poor economic outlook and the severe disruption in capital and credit markets might seem to indicate that it's a good time to stand pat until there is clear evidence that economic and financial markets have stabil...

1.   Help each other be right... not wrong. 2.   Look for ways to make new ideas work...not for reasons they won't. 3.   If in doubt... check it out! Don't make negative assumptions about each other. 4.   Help each other win and take price in each other's victories. 5.   Speak positively about each other and your organization at every opportunity. 6.   Maintain a positive mental attitude no matter what the circumstances 7.   Act with initiative and courage as if it all depends on you. 8.   Do everything with enthusiasm...it's contagious! 9.   Whatever you want. . . give it away. 10.  Don't lose faith. . . never give up 11.  Have fun . . find your joy!

Twas the night before Clsoing the loan's not approved. the sellers don't know it, they've already moved!   The ratios are high, the credit is slow, but off to the Underwiter the file did go!   The payoff's not here, the title is lost, now they've found termites ........ what's that going to cost?   When all of a sudden, he sat up in bed, and knew in a flash it was all in his head!   For Home Realty/GMAC found a mortgage and you know with that crew, no nightmares allowed...just dreams that come true!   Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

It's almost Christmas It's almost Christmas and it's hard for me to concentrate on work.  I want to be out in the hustle and bustle of things.  I even brought hot cider and cookies to the office today so everyone would get in the Christmas spirit with me. I know if I can keep at it, the work will pay off come the first of the year. Everyone have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

When its cold outside I love to go home to this Taco Soup.  Give it a try.   1 lb ground beef (cooked and drained) 1 can Pinto Beans 1 can Whole Kernel Corn (NO Salt Added) 1 can Green Beans (No Salt Added) 1 can Diced Tomatoes 1 can Ranch Beans 1 can Rotel Diced Tomatoes w/green chiles (Mild) 1 pkg El Paso Taco Seasoning (Mild) 1 Pkg Hidden Valley Ranch 1 cup Water Rinse and drain-Pinto Beans, Corn & Green Beans Add all ingredients together.  I coo for a couple of hours, but it can be served immediately after making. I think it adds more flavor to cook some.  Serve with sour cream and Tostito Chips. ENJOY!! Connie Lou Barnett GRI,CRS,CRB,SRMM,ARA,PRS,QSC Home Realty/GMAC Real Estate

This is NOW!  I just can't can't help myself.  I am just a proud grand-mom and have got to share this beautiful christening picture of my Baby Boy!  For those of you that remember, I posted a baby photo of him when he was first born the end of April. I am going to post it again just to show the reality of how quickly time flies and how quickly our little ones grow up.  Is there any way I can keep this grandson little?   He is getting so big, so quickly.......Below is the photo I posted when he was first born.  Just look at the difference already!  Are there any other proud grand-moms (or grand-pa's) out there?     Vickie McCartney, Realtor~ Home Realty GMAC~Owensboro, Kentucky

Did you know that the world's largest Sassafras Tree lives in Owensboro, Kentucky?  Well it does! I did do a post about a while back, but didn't have any photos of this, so I decide to do another one and include photos this time. Yes, there is a natural wonder in Owensboro, Kentucky it's home of the world's largest Sassafras Tree.   This natural wonder is almost 300 years old and it measures over 100 feet tall with over 21 feet in circumference. It is one of the first things we came to find during our relocation and home search.   It was very interesting especially  for my husband and son, as my son is an Arborist and together they have planted over 1000 trees just this year. (they did not plant sassafras though) This natural wonder right in the heart of Owensboro, Ky is located on Fred...

It is Sushi Time in Owensboro Kentucky. My friend Pat Sturgeon and I have been habitually enjoying sushi together recently in Owensboro,Ky .  One of the places we have been enjoying our sushi is at a new place restaurant off Highway 54 called Ninki's.   We are like two little kids on Christmas going and trying out different sushi rolls every time we go to Ninki's.   Look at Pat's big smile, it is because she is so happy we are getting ready to get our fix of some of our favorite sushi rolls.  I don't think we have tried anything yet there that we don't like love.  Last time we we there I took a few pictures of the place and of Pat, and I even remembered to take a picture of one of the rolls before we started eating it, except now I can't remember what the name of the roll is  was!
