  Sunday (7/1/12) Shot of the Day in Atlantis, Florida   As I do every morning and of course certain times of the day, nature will surprise you. Today was no different. Seeing a Muskogee Duck in the tree is one of those moments. First of all they have webbed feet, and not talons to grip. Secondly, not the gracious of all feathered friends, as we would expect. Finally, don’t most ducks swim rather than perch? It must have a better view is all I can conclude….

  Who Says We Can’t Get Along Wednesday Real Estate Tip of the Day. Since rediscovering my feeder a month ago, I have come to a realization that bird watching, can be both exciting and interactive. What can be learned by studying animal life can tell us a few things as well. At the feeder there is a certain intimidation factor, where on the ground not so much. They seem to have to take turns regardless of the species and some just get chased away period. Parrots if you noticed in this clip come in a flock, and land in a group. There are three on the feeder and five on the ground.  If you ever saw their nest, it is the size that could measure 2’ x 3’ enclosed with a doorway. I swear they also remodel too, for you can see them moving around inside adjusting the twigs.    My tip of the day...

  Sunday 06/24/12 Shot of the Day in Atlantis, Florida   Back at our nature reserve I call the back yard. I witnessed something  going on that got my attention. Walking by our 12’ slider, I saw this spraying of dirt on the other side of the bank. This of course is separated by a canal of the two properties. Upon closer investigation. I noticed the water turtle burying her eggs.  As I quietly and cautiously walked as close (some 100’ away) as I could she noticed me and immediately slid down the bank back into the water. Perhaps a movie camera would have been better suited?

  When We Sit Above The Crowd We Get A Different Perspective…   Tip Of The Day   We have live here in Atlantis, FL almost five years now enjoying the many treats of nature. As they go about their daily lives surviving just like we need to do. Well today as my wife comes to alert me as she watches one my, as I call them boys fly up onto the screen enclosure. By the way this has never been done in my view for Muskogee ducks usually stay on the ground. Oddly though I have seen where they have built nests on roofs in certain protected areas.   The point of this could be many for height always gives an enlighten view on your situation. Two, sometimes we do things that will get the attention of others. Three, is just because you were made a duck, doesn’t mean you always have to act like one. ...

  What’s Wrong With This Picture….A Simple Truth… Lately, I am fascinated with my bird feeder since removing a bunch of trees and bushes from the back yard. The activity from morning till dusk is just off the chart needless to say. One thing has really bothered me is the fact of not the birds but the squirrels that plant themselves on the feeder and go to town. In a quest to find a solution I came up with this idea. At first I set the owl on the ground next to the pole, sat and watched the reaction. The chorus from the birds having a fit for 10 minutes was deafening. The squirrels hesitated and knew not to approach this new strange animal. I thought great problem solved. A couple hours go by no squirrels. In the mean time the birds got brave again and continued to feed. As soon as I tur...

  Does making it to the Top 20 mean anything on Active Rain???   I recently as of tonight made it to the Top 20 in all of Palm Beach County. I do seem to spend a lot of time here and feel dedicated for  the opportunity to share my thoughts. I have to say the points and the ranking have got me hooked to keep pace and often feel challenged to keep adding to the cause. As I look to who is in front of me, they seem to be all active on a daily basis. Where do you rank in your county and do you challenge yourself?    #1 Steve Hoffacker - Sales Trainer/Coach, Sales Books Author, Photographer Real Estate Trainer 1,464,301 3,675 18   #2 Nestor & Katerina Gasset Realtors® Wellington Florida Homes For Sale Real Estate Agent 1,342,494 2,455 248   #3 Lou Ludwig CRB, CRS, CIPS, GRI, SRES, TRC, e-PRO,...

  Silent Sunday A Day In The Life At Atlantis, Florida I have gotten use to carrying my camera, everywhere I go now. Even travelling to the back yard can be exciting you love a little nature here and there. It can be quit unpredictable, and fascinating just watching how the wild performs on a regular basis. Here I spotted this sea turtle catching some air as it mainly swims under water.

  Would You Bring This To Your Home, A Day in the Life of A Realtor        I am involved in a short-sale where I seem to have to be a little pro-active in order to secure my own paycheck. I’m not sure if most Realtors would do this and if they did probably would pay someone in hopes of getting it back in saving time. Me, on the other hand, being in the construction trade over the last 28 years as well, didn’t seem to bother me as much. The question is one is suppose to become wiser over the years by using their head and not their back so I’m told. Anyhow, after losing the first investor, waiting for the squatters to vacate, climbing through the window, because they changed the locks, cleaning out the?, I was left with a dilemma. Oh!! did I tell you the wife spent ¾ of her weekend helpin...

  Out With The Old In With The New A/C That Is…   With the high cost of energy on the rise it pays to get the most bang for your buck. This starts with the mechanics for your home or business. Though Air Conditioners can last for 20 years, most don’t and become energy abusers, costing you in the wallet and higher monthly bills. According to Florida Power & Light (Home Energy Survey) cooling & heating account for 41% of your energy usage. With the water heater coming in second @ 15%, and the pool pump coming in third @ 11%. If your unit is 10 years or older and needs frequent repairs or just doesn’t cool like it used to, it may be time to replace it, with a new high efficiency model. If nothing else get it serviced now that summer is just about here.

  Words & Wednesday… Shot of the Day in Atlantis, Florida Since resetting our feeder we attract many feathered friends thru-out the day. Recently a few parrots have found my seed haven and have decided to stop by for lunch. They can be loud in their own right, and sometimes too loud for their own good. Never the less it’s neat to see them when they come for a visit.

  How do you stand out in a crowd? Real Estate Thought of the Day.   Ever since I had a bunch of tree removal done and yard work, I have rediscovered my bird feeder. Off to the side and out of the picture during the late afternoon will attract what I call my feathered friends. The tip here is this, though they all do similar things, there will always be the one that will get the most attention and stand out among many. By doing something unique will separate yourself from others. Give it a try, you’ll be amazed at the result.

  If they can’t See You on the Web, How will they find you? This is just a quick example in tying nature into business with a tip to remember. As all of us evolve with the lasted gadgetry, just remember how you are found, on the internet. If you blend in like your cohorts you may never be discovered. Try to stand out some way, but keep it within the limits of who you are and/or your business practice. You may need to move closer to the problem to find the answer.

  Do Food Stamps effect Real Estate sales? What is your opinion?   The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, announced that it is pleased to be distributing food stamps to the greatest number of people ever.   Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to "Please do not feed the animals" because they may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves. Who then will buy homes, or will it be the animals?

  Something Fishy Happening Here in Atlantis, Florida 6/10/12   In our little end of tropical paradise and nature reserve, I noticed this going on in our canal the past few weeks. These large trout type have pushed out the dirt to perhaps lay eggs or just do what fish like to do. As I was cutting grass today I glanced down to see our little finned friend almost translucent by the bank, so I had to get a shot.

  To be in the top 200 in Florida, a small milestone. I recently passed the 200 mark (#196) in points of all the active members in the state rankings of Florida. As I continue to rack up points for my own enjoyment, I have notice a lot of agents have stop posting. I realize things change and perhaps the novelty wears a little thin, but to stop completely. One thing I have tried to do is challenge myself to increase points all the while learn as I go too. I am hopeful along the way it will pay off into something positive.     NameScoreBlog PostsFeatured  #151 Jeannette Neerpat, e-Pro Coral Springs/Parkland Real Estate Real Estate Agent 160,971 514 11   #152 Jim Poole Zero Down USDA Purchase Loans FHA 203(K) Rehab & VA Streamline Loans Loan Officer 160,612 541 0   #153 Colleen McConnell, ...
