This popular checklist app for real estate agents on the go, and if you are a decent agent you are always on the go, is a real treat. It takes a special person, man or woman, and their mates, as well as their immediate family members to be be as flexible as possible, in all areas of life, for just about 24/7 for 365. I’ve met a few realtors here and there. They are very personable and do always seem to be off and running and hard to catch up with. I guess now a days with most of us have cell phones we are expected to be contacted right away by using just a few keystrokes on a quick and easy accessible keyboard.
I just had a flash back on the beepers that came out and grew in popularity in no time. If you had a beeper you were regarded as “well connected”. Funny how the whole beeper thing started out in the business world as a tool to keep in touch with employers and employees and how in a matter of no time flat everyone started getting, wearing and using a beeper. Back then there were car phones (or we called them mobile phones as well), but they were expensive and large and cumbersome to deal with. And then bada boom, bada bing cell phones came out and the whole world changed, right along with the ever growing use of the Internet.
All that brings me back to the goconnect app for realtor checklists that I was talking about. Ellen (my next door neighbor) is a real estate agent and she is a hoot and not really up on today’s technology! I couldn’t ask for a better friend/neighbor. I have had some pretty rotten neighbors in my time. As a matter of fact the neighbor on the right of our house and I don’t talk. We have had many issues with this old crazy man, but thank God for Ellen who lives on our left. She was showing me across the fence, which is were we spend a lot of time talking all the time, the realtor checklist app that she had just found and figured out how to use and benefit her needs and wants. She is very excited about the prospect of something available that she can actually figure out how to use and use it.
Ellen became a widow 9 years old and has a great out-look on life. She is a nice looking woman, for her age, and she is very encouraging and nurturing, and has a heart of gold. Ellen never had children but they always had several types of critters under their care. You never know what you will see when you go in her house, and her backyard is a beautiful, animal friendly, home to a variety of living creatures that she has rescued and taken care of. She is always looking for new homes for these animals. I fear she takes in way more than people take out.
Today I stopped at the gas station to fill up the tank and I forgot my credit card. Thank goodness had some cash with me, so I went inside to pay for the gas. It’s funny, because I almost never go inside the stores anymore. I usually pay at the pump because it is fast and easy.
But since I had to pay cash, I went inside. The clerk was very nice and offered me a discount on a car wash if I filled up the tank. The little automatic car wash that they have does a good job on a quick wash if you normally keep your car pretty clean. It’s usually $5 for the basic car wash and up to $10 for the deluxe super duper with wax and wheel shine and all the extras.
So the special offer was half price on any of the price levels and I decided that $2.50 for a car wash was a pretty good deal. So now I have both gas and a clean car, and I’m feeling pretty good about my ride today.
The pedal power 4×4 at musicians friend that I ordered last week came in today. I hope that my nephew will be impressed with this Voodoo Lab Pedal Power that he will find under the Christmas tree come Christmas morning. I wish that I could be there to see the look on his face. My sister has promised to take plenty of pictures to post on Facebook, so that will just have to do.
It’s a shame that my family just keeps on spreading out farther and farther with each passing year. I can’t image getting the whole family together for Christmas or Thanksgiving any time soon. I don’t think it would happen for a wedding either. And let us hope that we don’t have any funerals to find out how many would be able to attend.
I’ve known that whitehall address plaques have the best selection and a variety of prices but of course me being me I had to check it out for myself and see what I could find using the Internet for all that it is worth and meant for. I really want one of the nice looking custom address plaques that a lot of my neighbors are having made up and installed. I’ve talked with several of them and they all have told me the same thing that whitehallis the way to go, most interesting, I had no idea that whitehall had such a reputation.
The need for better residential address plaques has been a topic of conversation around the neighborhood for some time now ever since we all most lost Mr. and Mrs. Blackwell last year due to the personalized address plaques that they had on their home that wasn’t placed in the best place for the ambulance driver to see it and there was a major hassle that cost them a lot of valuable time that could have been used to try and help stabilize both of these poor people that were both having medical issues that required the EMTs assistance.
So I have found a great website at justaddressplaques.com that has some of the nicest bronze address plaques that I’ve seen around and since no one else has a bronze address plaque I plan on being the first and I’ve placed my order and should be receiving it in short order. I’m pleased with myself right now with a job well done.
Every generation has grand dreams of vacationing in distant lands and countries. I’m sure the urge to travel and see places that are unknown to us is a primal one. My parents always wanted to take the whole family to Japan and then Vietnam. They were always so into the Asian culture that it was a dream we were all convinced would come true. Unfortunately we never got to make that adventure a reality. We still all talk about it from time to time though. However, we were planning on a trip to the U.K.
There are several people involved with this trip so it is going to take a miracle to get this all planned out in a way that everyone will be happy! It seems that the more people you involve the harder it is to actually have good time, but that has never stopped us before so it won’t be too much of a problem this time. We thing I’d like to do is stay at the Bristol Hotel(s) at least one night, if not more. I have a friend who stays at the Bristol and always rants and raves about it. I have always wanted to see it for myself, but I never imagined that I really would one day in the future.
This is going to take some organizing, and I don’t think we will be going any time soon. My sister and her hubby are doing a lot of the research and planning, which is just fine with me. I’m pretty easy to get along with so I’ll be happy with just about anything as long as everyone else is happy and getting along with each other!
