Eclipsing Super Blue Blood Moon

Eclipsing Super Blue Blood Moon
With that said, I'm finding quite a few more people dismissing past events more quickly than in decades past.  It's no wonder if they are, considering the amount of information they're being fed on a daily basis.  I can remember not so many years ago when the main pages of say MSN, AOL and Yahoo had just a handful of articles compared to now.  I … continue reading

The Early Birds

The Early Birds
I'm still working at getting a sale put together with several delightful buyers I've been working with on and off these past weeks.  I've known them for a very long time, and I can say the both of them are about as honest and true to their word as a mid-summer's day is long.  Working with people of such caliber makes for me the whole buying or se … continue reading

Most of my day was spent running errands and working on my office accounts.  Just staying at it an hour or two each day, makes for another one of my jobs finished more sooner than later.One of my errands sent me out to my listing at 1034 Park Lane here in Mason City where I took new exterior and interior photos which I felt necessary so to rep … continue reading

Town Crier

Town Crier
I found an early church service to attend this morning, and wasn't surprised to find so few people there due to our overnight snow.  The Service didn't move me much, so I thought it would be a good time for me to remain quietly seated and inwardly create my own religious experience.  It was good for about the first couple minutes until I couldn't … continue reading

Shades of Red

I couldn't be thankful enough to the owners, for their willingness to have their units open for viewing.  They were immensely helpful with my marketing of the vacant units by their allowing prospective buyers to see for themselves how much furniture will comfortably fit into those vacant units.  Since all the rooms are over-sized, it's hard for m … continue reading

I've heard some business owners blaming the City for not getting it all off, but don't you think they should be getting their own arses out there and clearing paths for the sake of their own commercial interests?  All businesses great and small must continue remembering it's all about making potential clients and customers as comfortable as possib … continue reading

Slippery Inclines

Slippery Inclines
After I found the card I wanted, I paid for it, and then walked out. At that moment, I decided to give the old place my own personal walking tour.  Having not traversed the entire mall for a number of years, I was shocked to find how many actual storefronts are closed.  Wow!  In spite of hearing how many storefronts have been shuttered, it reall … continue reading

Speaking of weather, if my memory serves me, it seems that when we have a bitterly cold winter, it's followed by a scorching summer.  We really haven't had a terribly hot one in some years, so I guess it may be our turn this year.Most of my morning was spent working on and off with the Globe Gazette to create a large ad being placed in Friday' … continue reading

Fear and Failure

Fear and Failure
This thought came to mind when a client/customer whom I've worked with over a number of years decided to finally step forward and purchase a home today which I'm convinced, barring any life changing intervening circumstances, will be transformed in time to be a great long term investment.  Thank goodness there are still those few who aren't afraid … continue reading

Thank goodness I was at my office while that super heavy snow was coming down so I could get my sidewalks scooped before it got too heavy.  It took three visits out there while it was snowing, and certainly happy I didn't wait until it stopped or I would've had a real workout.I've had my baptism in fire, or should I say baptism in snow when it … continue reading
