Once upon a time there was a tiny, tiny Banker  named Dene Lene. One day Dene Lene when to work at the bank,  when something fell on her head.

"Oh," Dene Lene, "the sky is falling. I must go tell the daily news."

So Dene Lene ran and ran, and she met Postman Dan

"Where do you travel so fast, Dene lene?" asked Postman Dan.

"Ah, Postman Dan," said Dene Lene, "the sky is falling, and I must go and tell the Daily News."

"How do you know that the sky is falling, Dene Lene" asked Postman Dan.

"I saw it with my eyes, I heard it with my ears, and a bit of it fell on my head," said Dene Lene.

"I will go with you to the daily news" said Postman Dan.

So they ran along together, and they met Truck Driver Sam

“During your life, never stop dreaming....."

“During your life, never stop dreaming.....

Life is so full of decisions and chooses.... Each day we have the opportunity to touch the life of those people that cross are paths

Don’t ever be reluctant to show your feelings
When you’re happy, give in to it.
When you’re not, live with it.

Don’t ever be afraid to try to make things better,
You might be surprised at the results.

Don’t ever take the weight of the world on you shoulders.
Don’t ever feel threatened by the future;
Take life one day at a time.

Don’t ever feel guilty about the past;
What’s done is done.
Learn from mistakes you might have made.

Don’t ever feel that you are alone –
There is always somebody there for you to reach out to.

Don’t ever forget that you can achieve
So many of the things you can imagine,
It’s not as hard as it seems.

Don’t ever stop loving,
Don’t ever stop believing,

As life deals you your hand
whether it be Black or Red 
Kings or 2’s
You have thge right to make the choice
To change a life or to kill a Dream
  remember no one can take "YOUR JOY"

...Dont ever Stop Dreaming your Dream"

This is for my little buddy who sometimes finds himself as one of the animals in the Ark thinking he is going to sink and not NOAH who is keeping the dream alive and going. It is because of Noah that we are all alive with the ability to dream the dream......Noah started to built the Ark long before the rain started to fall!!!

You could not do it without a FRIEND

ALLADEGA, Ala. -- How did Jimmie Johnson go from seventh to first on the final lap of Sunday's Aaron's 499 at Talladega Superspeedway?

With the help of a friend!! Lifting him when he felt down. Dale Jr did not put himself first, he knew the importance of the bump drafting.
Seeing that Bowyer may have a run to his outside, Gordon slides up one lane in an attempt to use the side draft to slow their advance. At that moment, Johnson makes the decision that ultimately wins the race. He veers sharply to the inside of both two-car drafts and Earnhardt is able to catch up quickly and get back in a position to push. Johnson's left-side tires appear to touch the yellow line.

I was like, 'Oh, no! Block 'em, block 'em, block 'em!


Johnson: "I just chilled out and sat in their draft and as we came off of [Turn] 4, those two groups were occupied trying to side draft each other and racing each other at the top, covered up. As we started rolling up on them, I shot down to the bottom, and with the help from Earnhardt  we were able to surge by out of the tri-oval coming out of the bottom because they kind of left it open there."

We can all learn how important it is to have the friend to lift and push us along...but in return we need to also be the friend who can push the load. You may not be the one getting the recognition or the glory but can sit back and smile knowing that it could not have happened with out you....

6 Reason to GOOGLE your address


There are at least 6 compelling reason to Google your own address- especially if it is an address your are thinking of renting, buying or selling. Smart home owners would do well to search for their address too and here is why....

1) To see if Megan's Law Registrants live nearby - Safety first folks. Megan' Law requires law enforcement authorizes to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders in their neighborhood. Nearly every state that has a Megan's Law-type sex offenders registry has on online version that serves up the names and address and sex offenders history and even photos. Check it out for your state at MEGAN'S LAW or for Utah at UTAH SEX REGISTRY

2) To find Crime reports and Data for your home - Cities, county and state law enforcement agencies all post crime date online, But GOOGLE searches for your address or city and "CRIME REPORT" is most likely to turn up your local police or sheriff's offices crime report. If you are moving to a city or even a state where your are not completely familiar, doing a quick search on Google holds the potential to reveal some disturbing or comforting crime activity information

3) To detect scammer how are trying to sale or rent your home - Internet scammers have taken to ripping off house information and putting together fake listings, offering other peoples for rent and even for sale with a lease to own option. The offer list the home with with cheap and easy terms, then ask the would be buyers or renters to please wirer or send the deposit money over seas, where the fake sellers can get it while they are traveling- you guessed it - Nigeria. These scams come to light only when the new renter start stopping my the home and peeking in the windows.

4) Checking out the values in your neighborhood to possible help with your taxes - In real estate the value of your home is driven mostly by the value of those home in your neighborhood that are similar to your also known as comps. (In some now disclosure state this maybe   more difficult) This could give you a good reason to know what your neighbors home sold for. If you see a pattern of homes selling for lower then yours homes assessed value, you can use these comps to petition your county to lower your own property taxes

5) To see your homes property records - Its a story as old as homes, well as old as websites that displays homes records and listings. Your homes records online are populated from the public records about your home. which are either  so old they don't include upgrades and additions that have been done over time, or they're just flat out wrong for a number of reasons. If you Google your address and find that your home description is riddled with errors, contact your county public record agency to correct them, this is particularly important if you are planning on selling your home anytime soon

6) To see home Home's GOOGLE street view - When your selling your home its especially critical to see everything that prospective home buyers may see. That means checking out how your home listing looks on all online real estate sites. One thing homes savy buyers is the Google map street view of the homes they maybe interested in prior to going to see the home for themselves. If you are unfamilar with this Google attached a camera to the top of a car and drove down almost every street in america. Now Google uses can have an over head view along with a street view of the homes. That a look for yourself at GOOGLE MAPS this will blow your mind

Why is the sun always shining when I am stuck in the basement!!

Why does the sun always shine when I am stuck in the basement working my little heart to death.

I have  noticed on long weeks and even months when the sun is behind the clouds or even decides not to come out at all the effects it has on my moods!!   I am even dangerous to my kids. I have notice my knees ache my head hurts and I even feel like I have the flu when the sun is not shinning

Spring in Utah is quite different from most places it could be 70 degress on Monday,  be snowing 6 inches and  30 degrees on Saturday making it rough to enjoy the sunshine and it always seems to be shining when I have to work. UGHHHH!!

I decided to find out just why the sun is so important to my body and this is what I found out

  • The sunlight kills microbes.
  • Sunlight helps in cases of chronic or acute depression,
  • The sun is good against insomnia.
  • The skin synthesizes vitamin D, which makes  possible calcium absorption in the intestine, helping the organism grow  strong bones.
  • The sun fights off this disease. Regular and  controlled exposure to the sun has a preventive effect against cancer of  colon, breast, leukemia and lymphomas.
  • The sun strengthens the cardiovascular system.  Blood circulation is improved, the pulse, arterial pressure, moderately  high glycemia and cholesterol levels can be normalized
  • Sun rays improve liver functioning,
  • The sun also helps losing weight by increasing the metabolic rate through the stimulation of the thyroid
  • The sun rays also ease the healing of the swollen joints during peaks of inflammation in cases of arthritic


(well after I finish my work I got so excited there for a minute)

Feel a bad headache coming on from the stressful day!!! I know just how you feel I get them very often and I hate it!!! There are a few quick tips that may easy your pain!! Lets all get together and do the headache dance yahoo!!

1. Drink iced coffee

Both ice and caffeine are vasoconstrictors,  meaning they'll help the throbbing vessels in your head shrink down and  may provide fast relief. I prefer Diet Coke I don't like the taste of Coffee. (Sometimes people who drink caffeinated  beverages regularly get a withdrawals headache when they drink less than their usual amount, so this remedy can be especially

2. Remove your head gear

If you're wearing a hat, headband, helmet, ponytail holder -- even  goggles or sunglasses -- try taking them off (when it's safe to do so,  of course). Tight accessories can cause something called external compression headaches

3. Try acupressure and massage

Applying pressure to the acupressure   point in the webbing between your thumb and index finger may be helpful  in easing the pain of a headache. Gently pressing the

back of your neck  with three fingers on each side can also help provide relief.

4. Grab an ice pack

Applying an ice pack to the back of your neck

5. Drink some water

Drinking Water  can often provide the only relief you need. Who would have tough by drinking water you could relieve your headache

6. Get some sleep

Lying down in a dark, quiet room is the best remedy. This is one of my favor things you can even shut the door to your office and lay on the floor for a quick nap

7. Practice relaxation- ya right that is where I problem lays I need to RELAX

One quick trick is to relax  your jaw and take a few deep breaths. A clenched jaw can be a headache  trigger!

8. Try aromatherapy

Some studies have shown that Peppermint  oil may be as powerful as over-the-counter pain reliever  in the treatment of tension headaches. Try dabbing a little on your temples and the back of your neck. With all the plug in devices you could even have this in your office or home all the times.

9.Take a Hot Shower.

Stand in the shower and allow the hot water to  cascade down your neck and back. This should loosen your muscles and  allow for better blood flow. Also, this would be a good time to use the  aromatherapy "soap" that was mentioned in headache cure

10 Take over-the-counter (OTC) drugs

Aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and naproxen can all be helpful in treating a headache, especially when taken early.

Most of all take time for yourself, enjoy life this will help tons to relieve your headaches, now if I can only do all that!! Best luck to all of you as you fight offer those blasted headaches

OPEN HOUSE how would believe

Have you ever had one of those days when your not sure just what to say..... I was preparing for an open house in a vacate home in a very nice subdivision, the home sat on a hill with a large tree in the front yard almost like Mrs Cravat's neighbor. Kids playing in the yards close by the sun is shinning and the birds were spring a beautiful day for an Open House.

I arrived at the home to set up, I entered the house turning on all the lights, arranging the cookies and paperwork and then settling down for the day. I had not been then only about 15 mins when the neighbor came over and will no hello and not missing a beat said "show me the room" I said "the room" well ya the room the boy went crazy and killed his father.... very long pause... he was crazy you know...which i did not know.

The neighbor made his way back to the back of the house to see what he thought was going to be a mess....arrive at the room you could see the disappoint that settle down on his face. Looking into the room which had been freshly painted and new carpet throughout. At which time he left. For the rest of the 2.5 hours the house made all the popping and creaking sounds you could image freaking me out just a little...As most of us know as agents someone being murdered in a home is not a defect of a home and does not have to be disclosure in most states unless you know and are asked about it.

2 weeks later a nice lady view the property fell in love with the home it was her dream home....until she did you due delinquency and found out the someone was killed in the home getting more details she cancel the contract due to the fact that she was the police office that arrested the boy she was aware of his mental state she would not be at the home if he was ever released. Knowing that is where he would return and she was not going to be there.
