News To Help You Save Time And Money April 2011

What’s So Special About April 22?

Did you know that April 22 is Earth Day, and has been every year since it was first celebrated in 1970?

Earth Day was the creation of Gaylord Nelson who, as a Wisconsin Senator in the late 1960s, said, “Our soil, our water, and our air are becoming more polluted every day. Our most priceless natural resources – trees, lakes, rivers, wildlife habitats, scenic landscapes – are being destroyed. How are we going to get the nation to wake up and pay attention to the most important challenge the human specifies faces on the planet?”
Nelson’s wake-up call was that first Earth Day, and 20 million people in the U.S., Canada and other countries participated in activities demonstrating their interest in the environment. Today Earth Day is observed in more than 140 countries with rallies, speakers and parades, and individuals or groups planting trees, picking up roadside trash, and conducting programs about recycling and conservation. You can check out activities at www.epa.gov/earthday, www.earthday.ca and other Web sites, and celebrate Earth Day every day by practicing the five Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Replenish and Restore. Here are just a few ideas:
Replace your standard light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).

Carpool or take public transit – even once a week will make a difference.

Call companies that are sending you unwanted catalogues and cancel them.

Find out where to recycle your old electronics – cell phones, computers, MP3s – and set a date to do it.

Take shorter showers, and run your dishwasher only when it’s full.
Love your planet on Earth Day – and every day!

Cell Phone Civility

Cell phones sometimes seem to create as many problems as they solve. To smooth over the rough spots, CellPhones.org put together this list of cell phone etiquette tips:

Lower your voice. Don’t force everyone around you to listen to your half of the conversation.
Avoid personal subjects. Resist the temptation to overshare where complete strangers can listen to your intimate secrets.
Don’t take calls (or text) when talking to someone else. If you absolutely must take the call, excuse yourself and keep it brief.
Silence your ringer in theaters. Put it on vibrate, and don’t answer your phone while others are watching the movie, play, or performance.
Don’t get mad about dropped calls. If you make 100 calls per week you’ll lose two to four calls every week. Don’t blame the other person for a dropped call. It happens.
Keep your distance. Whenever possible, stay at least 10 feet away from others when talking on your phone.

Praise Vs. Effective Praise

It’s likely that you know the benefits of giving praise – whether it’s in a work situation, a personal relationship, or even with your pet puppy. Praise makes the recipient feel valued, and encourages the recipient to repeat the behavior you’re praising. It makes you feel good, too!

Giving effective praise can be tricky, however, so here are three tips to keep in mind the next time you’re praising a colleague, family member or friend. (This doesn’t work with your puppy but a doggie treat will.)

  • Do You Want To Find Other Local Businesses That Give Outstanding Customer Service?

    Request a free copy of my service directory. All of the businesses listed in it have a proven track record for providing the outstanding customer service you deserve.

    Show that you understand the difficulty of what they did.

  • Show you understand how they succeeded – the decisions they made, the tools and/or techniques they used, the resourcefulness they displayed.

  • See An
    Interesting Home?

    No need to wonder about the price. No need to call a high-pressure sales agent who will just make you feel obligated. My computers can send you the information quickly and easily for any house, listed or sold, anywhere in town.

    Just ask me! It’s all part of my free, no-obligation
    HomeFinder Service.

    Leave the address on my voicemail, anytime, 24 hours a day, and I’ll fax, mail or email all the information on that listing within 24 hours.

    Show you understand the value of what they did.

In other words, giving praise can be work. But it’s truly worthwhile for both the receiver and the giver.

Cool Off And Save

If you’re prone to impulse buying, try this trick to exercise a little financial restraint: Give yourself a spending limit and don’t spend more than that limit without taking 48 hours to think about it. For instance, if you see a pair of shoes you’d love to have but costs $100, pause before you hand over your credit card or cash you really can’t spare.

Forcing yourself to think about a purchase will provide you enough of a cooling off period to help you determine whether or not you really need to make the purchase.

How To Plant A Great Herb Garden

If you love having fresh herbs at your fingertips here are a few suggestions on setting up an herb garden you will use and love:

  • Plant your herb garden as close to the kitchen as you can manage. Your herb garden can be grown in a series of containers if that helps you locate it where it will be most convenient. If you have to go to too much trouble to get to and pick the herbs, you won’t use them as much.

  • If you want to get the most pleasure you can from your herbs, plant them along walkways and where people will brush up against them. They won’t release their fragrances until something brushes or bruises them.

  • Make sure to place your marjoram, parsley and thyme along borders. These plants only grow a few inches high and will get lost among taller plants.

  • Dill, tarragon and coriander grow up to two feet high. If you have a walkaround garden, the center is the best place. If your garden is up against a wall or object then you’ll want to place these plants at the back of the garden.

  • Grow bay leaves and rosemary in clay pots just beneath the soil of your garden. When the weather turns cold, dig them up and take them inside. They’ll continue to grow and you can enjoy their fragrance and flavor year round.

  • Remember some herbs spread (like mint, wild marjoram and tarragon). Each year they’ll take more and more room. To contain their growth, confine their roots by burying them in a section of stovepipe. The pipe will keep them from spreading.

  • Cut your herbs just before they flower for optimum flavor – that’s when their oils peak. If you’re going to store your herbs, it’s best to cut them midmorning on a sunny day.

  • Store your herbs by freezing or drying, or in oil or vinegar. You can use the oil and vinegar as seasonings when you cook and in salad dressings.

  • If you have refrigerator space, keep your dried herbs there, as they’ll keep better.

How To Remember A Name

Do you have trouble remembering names after you meet people? If you do, you might want to try the following technique to aid your memory:

Focus. You want to send a positive message to the person you’re meeting. Pay attention to your pose. Are you leaning in, are you telling the person that this moment is important to you and that he or she has your undivided attention?
Ask. Repeat the name back to the person you’re meeting. Ask if you’ve got it right. This makes you an active participant in the meeting and shows that you’re paying attention.
Repeat. Repeat the person’s name in your mind, then cross reference it with something else – a celebrity’s name that you’re already familiar with, or some other association.
Employ. Once you have the name clarified, it’s very helpful to introduce your new acquaintance to someone else. This makes you say the name out loud and fixes it in your memory.

Hunger Pangs Or Snack Cravings?

Many of us eat more than we need to. Often it’s because we think we’re hungry when instead we’re anxious, depressed, bored, or just tempted by the plate of brownies a coworker brought in this morning.

Although you shouldn’t wait until you’re faint with hunger to eat, it’s good to pay attention to the signals your body is sending you. These are the typical symptoms of real hunger:

Client Of The Month

Congratulations to our Client Of The Month, Barb and Stan Johnson from Tampa.

As always, the Client Of The Month receives a free dinner for two at the Old Mill Restaurant and may bring, as our guests, a couple of their choice.

Call me to find out how you can become Client Of The Month!

  • Growling, gurgling, or rumbling in the stomach

  • Irritability

  • Headache

  • Dizziness

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Nausea

Not sure whether you’re really hungry? Ask yourself if something healthy, like an apple or an orange, would make you feel better. If not – if you think you really, really need that chocolate chip cookie – then chances are you’re having a craving, not a real hunger pang.

Online Safety

As social networking stretches into every corner of our lives, parents are right to be concerned about the information their children may be sharing online – and about what kind of information they should share about their own families. Here are some guidelines:

Welcome New Clients

Here are some of the new clients who became members of our “Real Estate Family” this past month. I’d like to welcome you and wish you all the best!

Darrell and Marie Clayton from Tampa (referred by Sarah Parker)

Larry Miller from Brandon

Sue and Martin Baxter from Odessa

(referred by George Franklin)

The Larry Davidson Family from Lutz

John and Lucy McIntyre from Clearwater

Jeff Morgan from St. Petersburg

(referred by Jim Prescott)

We love giving recognition to our new friends and our wonderful existing clients who are kind enough to refer their friends, family and neighbors to us.

Pick a strong password. Don’t use common words or significant dates in your life. Create a password that’s a mix of capital and lowercase letters, plus numbers, so it can’t be guessed easily.
Don’t give your birth date. Leaving your full birth date – month, day, and year – can give hackers and identity thieves an avenue to more confidential information. Share just the day and month, or no birthday at all.
Use privacy controls. Limit what’s available on your profile so strangers don’t have complete access to everything you post online.
Vacations. Don’t announce that you’re going to be out of town ahead of time. You don’t want to advertise that your home will be empty.

Should Baseball Helmets Have Face Guards?

Baseball season is upon us and unfortunately, that means an increase in eye injuries is upon us, as well. Thirty-eight percent of all sports-related eye injuries result from baseball or softball, and nearly half of those injuries require surgery. Safety experts believe that face guards (which can be attached to batting helmets) can prevent a quarter to a half of those injuries because they protect the face when it’s struck by a ball or bat.

A face guard is a small investment to protect something irreplaceable – your, or your children’s, eyes.

Did They Really Ask That?

Here’s a “strange but true” from a source you might not expect – your library! Library reference desk workers collected these strange but true questions posed by patrons:

  • Do you have books here?

  • Do you have a list of all the books written in the English language?

  • Do you have a list of all the books I’ve ever read?

  • I’m looking for Robert James Waller’s book, Waltzing Through Grand Rapids. (Actual title: Slow Waltz in Cedar Bend.)

  • I was here about three weeks ago looking at a cookbook that cost $39.95. Do you know which one it is?

  • Which outlets in the library are appropriate for my hairdryer?

  • Do you have any books with photographs of dinosaurs?

  • Can you tell me why so many famous Civil War battles were fought on National Park sites?

  • I need a color photograph of George Washington (or Christopher Columbus, King Arthur, Moses, Socrates, etc.).

  • I’m looking for a list of laws that I can break that would send me back to jail for a couple of months.
