Flickr Foto Fun Friday Post – Horses

As a REALTOR in both New York and Connecticut, I have seen many farms and homes with horses.  I think they are beautiful, but I do admit that I am a bit – well maybe very – intimidated by their size.  But oh how I do love to view them… from afar!  Here are some of my favorite Flickr photos from very daring photographers!

Country Music Awards


Tonight the 42nd Country Music Awards aired on ABC with Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley as co-hosts. The two also performed and both won awards.   I have a client that I have been working with for almost 2 years now.  She LOVES country music – so Samantha, this post if dedicated to you!

The show started off with an awesome performance by Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.  Other performers were The Eagles, Sugarland, Kellie Pickler, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift and my favorite of the night, “All Summer Long” by Kid Rock.

Kenny Chesney wins “Entertainer of the Year” – country’s music top prize.  Here is the list of all the winners tonight from CMT.com and photos of the CMA Awards Red Carpet Pictures from AOL.

Family Halloween Night!

  Darkpatator – FLICKR

My family and I celebrated HALLOWEEN night at my brother, Louie and sister-in-law, Leia’s home.  They went all out with “spooky” decorations and “scary” – but yummy – TREATS.  We had a ton of LAUGHS through out our “MONSTER MASH” night!

Tonight, after Trick-or-Treating, I watched The Poltergeist – a favorite of mine.  I have MANY others that I can share.  Remember, it doesn’t have to be Halloween to watch a scary movie.

  • The Silence of the Lambs
  • Friday the 13th
  • Halloween
  • Carrie
  • Jeepers Creepers
  • Texas Chainsaw Massacre
  • The Shinning
  • The Birds
  • The Sixth Sense
  • The Exorcist
  • Amityville Horror
  • Psycho
  • What Lies Beneath …. Just to name a few!

As I was driving around New Fairfield CT, I couldn’t help but notice all the birds nests – and of course that   made me think … What if I was a Realtor for the birds??  Most of you should know me and my silly thinking by now!


 Nests are scattered through-out trees in Connecticut and New York. In just 3 miles, my mother and I counted almost 20 nests!   How did they pick and choose their “home”?

I also wondered what would being a Real Estate agent for birds involve?  Would I need to search for the tallest tree – a strong and sturdy one?  Maybe an oak tree – a maple or pine tree.  I wonder if their criteria would include having to find the perfect tree near homes with bird feeders and bird baths – BUT – none near homes with cats!

Hmm?? Most trees are awfully high and most birds tend to make their “home” on the very top.  Suddenly, I feel I’ve developed a fear of heights!
