Several weeks ago I received an email regarding a property I was listing for rent.Debbie Walsh, From: Name changed to protect their identityEmail: omittedMessage:I am interested in viewing this property. Please send me more information about blank property. I have spoken with the owner of this property through email already but it is difficult with getting emails quickly with him being out of the US therefore I figured I would contact you about it. On the website it states that it is $900 month and he wrote to me in an email as well as on craigslist where I found it that it was $550 with utilities included. Please let me know any information you have on this home because I am very eager to take a look at it and possibly move in ASAP. Thank you in advance.Now this note was very strange t...

This was a picture I took a few years ago when I was in Cape Cod.  I got a spam comment on it and saw some information needed to be corrected so I decided to fix and repost.  He is such a beautiful tiger!   Photos by Debra Walsh, Copyright © 2011 Debra Walsh.

Here are some pictures taken at the Bronx Zoo by my husband when we were there in the freezing cold! a month or so ago with friends.  This first batch is all water related.  The best is yet to come!  At that time of year there really is not a lot to see but for anyone who likes animals unless it is freezing cold you never mind how many you get to see as long as you get to be around animals.  The bulk of the exhibits are closed and the animals are put away for the winter but there are a few that are open and some animals that are outside.  The zoo is open to the public all year long.  They also have a pass you can buy which I may look into, that is for the year that gets you into the zoo as many times as you want all year and any other zoos and aquariums (which there are quite a few) in ...

I saw the Social Network today and surprisingly I was disappointed.  While the story line was good and the actors played their parts very well, I found myself to be bored through most of the movie.  It jumped all over the place and back and forth.  If it had just been the straight story line I think it would have been a lot more interesting.  I thought everyone in the movie did a great job.  I know it sounds funny-how can you say everyone did a great job but the movie was boring?   Once you see it I think you will understand.  I think the most amazing thing was at the end they said Facebook's current value is 25 billion.  All invented by 19 year old kids.  Imagine that!

Again, another not so speechless post.  I forgot the name of this absolutely gorgeous bird.   While I was looking at him/her I was shocked when I realized he/she was paying attention to me as well.  A lot of the time when you are looking at birds in the zoo they don't acknowledge you at all even if you are a foot away from them.  This bird was behind glass and I noticed the attention when the bird turned their head the same way I did.  So I did it again and so did the bird.  The bird actually came right up to the glass twice where I placed my hand on the glass.  I love love love birds and was thrilled by this.  I wound up standing there for quite awhile and being entertained by this beautiful bird.  It looked like it had been hand painted by an artist.  It then began spitting up red bea...

I tried to make this a wordless but it was impossible.  I got dragged to the Bronx Zoo the other day kicking and screaming.  Kicking only because it was 20 degrees and I knew we would have to be outside to see the "good stuff."   So I bundled myself up and off we went.  It was extremely cold and most of the place was closed but what little we did see I have to admit was extremely worth it.  Anyone who knows me knows how much I love animals and I could watch them all day.  Unless I am somewhat frozen as I found out that day.  More pictures will be forthcoming.  I took this on my phone because I did not bring my camera.  I didn't want to have to lug it around and knew I would not be able to operate it with my heavy gloves, jacket, scarf etc...

When you walk into the MGM Grand in Las Vegas there is a glass enclosure in the casino area that houses the most beautiful lions.  It is a 9 million dollar enclosure that is sound proof.  They cannot hear a thing that goes on outside the enclosure.  They can of course see everything.  On this particular day the male lion seemed to be a little agitated as he was pacing for quite a while right in front of the glass.  This drew quite a crowd and made me feel sorry for them to be on display in this type of setting.   He eventually gives up pacing and you can hear the crowd respond to it.  When you are this close to something that you never get to see it is very hard to walk away.

I was on my way home from work today and turned on to my street and saw a herd of deer running down the road.  I saw more deer than I have ever seen in the area of my house.  Of course I had no camera with me today because of the cold so I had to pull over and whip out my cell phone before they could disappear.  As a result the pictures are alittle fuzzy.  I could not believe how many deer there were.  All sizes and colors and shapes.  So pretty to see!

Just a heads up for everyone regarding the latest in Visa fraud.  This one is pretty slick since they provide YOU with all the information, except the one piece they want.  Note, the callers do not ask for your card number; they already have it.This information is worth reading.  By understanding how the VISA & MasterCard telephone Credit Card Scam works, you'll be better prepared to protect yourself.  The scam works like this:  Person calling says - 'This is (name), and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud Department at VISA.  My Badge number is 12460, Your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card which was issued by (name of bank). Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a marketing comp...

It seems as time goes on people get more and more unprofessional and hide behind texting and leaving voice mail messages.  I hate to say it but it is definitely true. Last week an agent called me and said she had someone interested in one of the new properties I had listed.  She took her client over to see it and they spent quite a bit of time there because as it turned out they were extremely interested.  When I got the call that they wanted the property I told them the usual.  Please submit a completed application etc...What I got was a sheet with the person's home address stating they would pay the required amounts and signed by the agent.  I called them back and said I needed a completed application, confirmed again that this was the property they wanted and they adamantly said yes....

This article came to me in a tweet today and as someone with extremely curly hair I decided to pass it along.   Mandy allows her articles to be reblogged and shared in all ways of social media.  I have gotten to the point with my curly hair that I have given up hoping for straight hair.  I have finally accepted it and I am glad I don't have to go to the beauty salons for perms a couple times a year.  It took a looooooooooong time but I am finally there!  Author: Mandy Feins The Number one rule for curly hair: adore it!It always amazes me when folks with naturally curly hair don't entirely enjoy it. So many women go to drastic actions to get straight hair when these folks possess something so fantastic already. Continually straightening your hair with a flat iron can cause considerable h...

Yesterday I got to see my daughter and her boyfriend on a day off from college and we decided to hit the movies since it was such a freezing cold day.  We saw the new movie "The Mechanic" with Jason Statham and Ben Foster.  Both of them were outstanding.  This is a remake of the 1970's movie with Charles Bronson.  First let me say I loooooooove Jason Statham and have seen all of his movies and this one did not disappoint.  I also have seen most, if not all of Charles Bronson's movies and this fit right in.This is definitely not a movie for children and maybe even teenagers.  All depends on the parents.  For those that are a little wishy washy on blood and violence this is not for you either.  Even with all that I still thought it was fabulous.  I am definitely not one for blood and guts...
