Do You Appreciate Gas Prices Dropping?

HELLLOOOO MY BEEEUUUTIFUL WONDERFUL BAY AREA!…

For those of us in a certain age bracket…shortly after I posted the price drop of gas by a couple dollars in our Great Bay Area… (one of the much younger than most of us)… on the move… up and coming… very brite young entrepeneurs FB friends I have… posted his own comment on why we’re silly to get excited over saving a few bucks… HAH!…

Personally I was amazed at his pompous thinking…this younger generation feel they know all things smart!…HAH! (must be nice to think its no big deal to save a couple bucks on gas per gallon) this GenXr has no idea at one time we literally raced to get in line in the wee hours of the morning ie) 3- 4-5 am (forget about 6am you would be too late)… to get gas that jumped from 37 cents per gal. to 63 cents!! Not to mention gas was rationed at one point… Call me “old” call me “silly”… Life repeats itself in so many ways… I remember vividly how my Mom would constantly remind us by example and always repeating the importance of comparing prices and saving every bit we could…

Its nice FB allows comments from all … how unfortunate some very brite folks can be “a day late and a dollar short”…!! or is two dollars short… and yes people I do save pennies too.

You’re Gonna Want this Condo!!… I’m Serious…

Greetings To You Today!!... Yesterday… I attended a class offered by my brokerage http://www.realtyworldnca.com on Social Media… designed to give us insight and information on today’s technology and networking capabilities… all about the How’s, Why’s and What To Do’s and how to incorporate it all into my business… WOW what a concept!!… Help to Help Me in my work!!… Awesome… here’s my chance to go and get myself more informed… and Free… whats not to like?!?…

This class was jammed pack with information… great overview  but wished we had more time for Q&A and actual instructions on the downloading of all those tools… most of these tools were brand new to me… never had anyone share these with me (thanks so much Erin…our in-house social media guru)… I was so excited and anxious to start using them ASAP!!

I wanted to download these tools while still in class… NOT… the internet connection at the venue was faulty, my own air card wasn’t working correctly… nothing I did allowed me to download a thing… was advised to wait til I got home (better connection) to downloadNOT… tried and tried over and over to download… I’ve learned over the years…with much trial and error and anxiety… one must be patient, stay calm (take deep breaths) and not get aggravated when working with the computer… nothing was working out right… went to bed… woke up this morning and the very first thing I did … (even before my morning coffee) was to get on my laptop to go at it again… NOT… to avoid bothering our in-house tech guru Ron… I called my local realtor board/tech support… NOT… they couldn’t get the downloads to take… sent emails to the various sites for help… (remember that saying… if at first you don’t succeed don’t give up… keep trying… ) so I reached out to our in-house tech guru Ron… Funny thing he was at that moment working on some of the same issues I was calling about…  he’ll send out update on the fixes later…

Moral to this story… there’s lots to learn, its all there for the taking, be patient, anything worthwhile will come in good time…

Have a Really Good Day All…

As always… would love to hear back from you… I welcome your feedback… Lets Start a Dialogue!…

Save Me in your Favorites and come back and visit all the time!!…

Thanks a Bunch for your time today…
