We were both impressed by this shucking zone that Trader Joe's has created for fresh corn.  Unlike other places, you could see before buying what the ear of corn would look like without its leaves and silk.  If it was not to your liking you could toss it, and go on to the next on.Happy Friday and we wish you a great weekend.  Cheers, Ron & Alexandra

In the midst of universal evolution that touches every topic in our world, more and more writings is taking place on the difference of sex and gender, as well as whether the youth is right when they express feelings about changing their gender (or sex). A lot of scientific sex studies have confirmed that sex and gender are not necessarily the same things since sex is predetermined by the anatomy, while gender stays under the influence of biology. Sometimes, it goes even beyond biology. One thing is for sure — the anatomy confirms your initial gender. However, biology, as well as psychological factors, may influence the gender change later on in life, which can lead to the case when the assigned sex does not line up with the gender identity.So, what is gender and what is sex?The term sex...

What a great post by @KVitali and I'm illustrating exactly what he mentions happens! Kevin wrote a very helpful article on how to make it in social media and how whether you choose to be a party pooper or the life of the party to determine your rate of success. It's so much about writing relevant, high quality content and linking to those that are active participants, in that they believe in the methods of engagement across the various social media platforms. Kevin wrote an article, included a link to me and he knew I'd discover his article, enjoy the good read (Kevin writes good stuff) and would share it; he knows I'm an active participant. Now, his reach has doubled, had he just included his own article, the reach would likely not have been as vast.   For years I spent time writing wh...

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but really... "There is No Santa Claus" This may come as a slight surprise and I am not going to share this little bit of fact with my grand children. but  One thing I do believe is that home ownership is definitely within every ones grasp.  There are a few simple steps toward getting towards that goal and it is definitely money oriented.  Unless you do have a Santa Clause in your family but that is not the path well traveled.   These are steps anyone can start on today. First get your credit report and see what's there. Then work on getting your debt down. Then start saving for a down. There's no magic shortcut but buying a home IS possible. #thehelpfulagent #homeownership #houseexpert #themoreyouknow #listreports #househunting #home #realestateagent...

We all know that a doctor considered to be the form of God because just as God puts his life in the human race, in the same way, the doctor also protects that life. Hence, all doctors play an essential role in themselves. Still, when Dr. Stuart Rubin has come, he is keeping his identity the most different because all the patients he has treated to date have been successful and have been very successful. Stort is made by Rubin as soon as possible.Doctor Stuart Robin is an on-site pain reliever, he has been working in the field for 27 years, and he is an expert in it. It said on information that he completed his graduation from a medical college in New York in 1988 and became an expert in pain medicine and physical therapy and rehabilitation.

It's been over 2 years since I left full-time real estate to help real estate agents and small businesses with digital marketing.   What I found fascinating was the difference between what online marketers do for clients vs what I was doing when I had a team.   Online marketers like to focus on big numbers because it provides them with more data.   The more data points you have the better mousetrap you can build or at least that's the thought.  Nowhere is this more true than in Google PPC advertising.   What most marketers miss is that real estate is a niche and it needs to be treated differently than every business. If you'd like me to walk you through setting up Google Adwords the right way for real estate agents, check out my course, otherwise, read on! Big Funnel FailsOften digital ...

I am more of a kitchen aficionado than a bathroom fanatic but it is not all about me.   What do you think?  I don't remember when the last time I took a bath.  I am in and out of the shower the first thing in the morning.   We don't have very many heated floors here in Florida.   I do like a steam shower but I am not sure how often I would use it.  Tubs, Nah. Warm towels, it all depends. What do you think? I would love to hear your comments.    Personally, I'd pick all of the above! What will be in your dream bathroom?

What Long Island Home Buyers Are Looking For   As Premier Long Island Realtors®, we are noticing that more and more home buyers are out and about looking for homes with open spaces, and builders are creating these spaces in their new construction homes. Walls are coming down, and we see new construction homes with Open Floor Plans.   What used to be 4 walls around kitchens, living rooms and family rooms, we are now seeing these rooms all surrounded by one large open area. The spacious open kitchen islands give Long Island homeowners the space to hang out, work, and eat in one central space.   When you open the front doors to these homes, you are now looking from the front to back as one large open area. The kitchens have large center islands that flow directly into the eating area, and ...
