Fun Facts and Inspiration for April 3


“If your plan is for 1 year, plant rice.  If your plan is for 10 years, plant trees.  If your plan is for 100 years, educate children.”                                                  Confucius

(Thanks to my niece, Cindy Mestelle for sharing this.)

Did you know that…

 The flashing warning light on Capital Records tower spells out “Hollywood’ in Morse code.

60 Minutes on CBS is the only TV show that does not have a theme song or music.  It simply has the ticking watch.

All Polar Bears are left handed (left pawed?)

Spiral staircases in medieval castles are running clockwise.  This is because all knights were right-handed and it made it more difficult to use their sword attacking the castle while on the stairs.

Most people know that the U.S. gold depository is in Fort Knox, Kentucky.  But did you know that the U.S. silver depository is in West Point, New York.

During a real estate transaction that may seem to stall during negotiations, it is a good idea to get the parties to negotiate items that they can agree on.  For example: the closing date may be something they agree on; the amount of earnest money etc.  Once parties to the transactions begin to negotiate on specific issues it is more likely that they will eventually agree on all issues.  All too often we get hung up on one item, such as price, and the transaction fails.

If you are thinking of buying or selling, talk to a real estate professional – talk to a REALTOR® who can give you the information you need to make an informed decision.
