Daniel Boone Tv Show
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: New DVD of first two seasons

After a marathon on Saturday on TVLand, they have announced the first two seasons of Daniel Boone starring Fess Parker are coming out on DVD.

You can preorder it through Amazon for $34.  According to one of the websites, it ran from 64 to 70 and there were 49 episodes.  I adored this show when I was a kid, and had the worst crush on Fess Parker.  He was my "Davy Jones" even before Davy Jones...:-)

He has a winery and hotel in California now and still looks incredibly handsome even in his 80's....

Davy Jones Makes Ebay Live Appearance
Mood:  amorous
Now Playing: Daydream Believer
Topic: Davy Jones
Hey, Hey, We're the Monkees EBay chief executive Meg Whitman debuted many new features and policies for eBay's marketplace in her keynote speech Tuesday night, but it was the surprise concert by singer Davy Jones of the Monkees that got the crowd roaring on its feet.


Davy Jones provided Tuesday night's entertainment. (Leslie Walker-The Washington Post) A Monkees song provides the backdrop for one of eBay's "It" TV commercials, and the 1960s-era rock band reflects the Baby Boomer demographic that makes up much of the mom-and-pop seller base that helped make eBay a world leader in electronic commerce. Thousands of eBay dealers screamed when Jones ran on stage, and many rushed to the front of the vast arena to get their pictures taken standing in front of the Monkees star.

Interesting Anti-Bush Blog
Topic: politics
Good to know there are some outspoken people with ANTI BUSH BLOGS out there.

This one has some cheerful pictures, and even calls itself "The smirking chimp". So I'm not the only one that sees that constant smirk. I always thought of him as a banty rooster, though. Oh well. Two more years, and if he doesn't destroy our economy (or the whole country) by then, we can have a democrat in there to straighten out the mess...:-)

Topic: Davy Jones
I have a very talented friend and fellow Davy fan, also fellow JAN name...Jan Beaudrie. She has found her calling with a video camera and recently scored a cool job with her local Public Tv in her hometown.

Anyway, she goes to many Davy Jones concerts and was playing around with some of her videos, which made ME play around and find out how to put the things on the internet...thus, here I am. Thanks to a nice website found at www.maxwell.syr.edu/ict/knowledgebase etc, etc.

I swear, you can Google and find the answers to the universe...:-)

To bad you can't Google a clone for several Davys I know..:-)

Winter, Condos, and William Shatner
Mood:  lyrical
Now Playing: Auld Lang Sine
Topic: funny stuff

The second week in January and we're having weather in the 70's like it was April. Global warming must not be so bad after all! Real estate and condos in Myrtle Beach are still riding the waves, even though the doom sayers and some of the agencies seem to be slowing down. I've seen very little slow-down in the sales of preconstruction at all. Course, New Resorts has all the business, and is now letting some of the other agents sell their stuff too, so the other preconstruction specialists are not getting much business. Could be the web designer's unique marketing abilities, perhaps...:-) I just found this in Yahoo's videos, and being that William Shatner is one of my heroes, I MUST post a link here. This is too good!

Big Bad Ophelia (not)
Mood:  crushed out
Now Playing: Myrtle Beach Condos
Topic: Yucky Weather
Everyone is stuck in their house today watching the rain fall down. Not particularly hard, just raining. Some wind, I guess. Trouble is, the whole town is closed down because everyone thought we were going to have a hurricane. Prince David at Myrtle Beach Condo Store has so much inventory right now it's mind boggling. By the time they build all the new Myrtle Beach condos that are coming up, nobody will be able to recognize it. One of the biggest hotels is the Coral Beach Resort. With 10 hotels, a fantastic lazy river, and its own bowling alley, this one is a keeper. If I had the money I would buy one of these in a minute. A friend and I stayed there about 15 years ago. We were in the lazy river about 1am and the entire Myrtle Beach police dept showed up to get us out. I guess they thought we were dangerous women...:-)

The end is once again near
Mood:  lazy
Topic: August Lull
The summer's almost over again...traffic is slowing. Website traffic is slowing too, which is depressing. I'm kind of looking forward to the cool weather, though. People can talk about Florida's great weather, but I think I like the change of the seasons just a little bit. Although my friend Annette, a realtor in Sarasota went on and on last winter about freezing in 50 degrees, it's kind of nice to get cold enough to kill fleas and other nasty creatures just a little bit. Working for The Prince of Myrtle Beach...(See previous post) and enjoying it immensely. I never would have thought this little secretary from High Point, NC would be hob-knobbing with real estate moguls in Myrtle Beach at my tender age. It's very thrilling and such a learning experience. He and his partner Doug Clayton are truly the ones to learn from, too. I'm hoping to eventually be able to buy a nice condo in Myrtle Beach on SOME KIND of water, have a boat, and a MAID...haha. We went to the Turks and Caicos Islands about 3 weeks ago...several of the agents and wives for New Resorts and myself and a friend...as well as David's friend Lane, who is developing the island of Grand Turk. I have truly NEVER seen such a paradise. You cannot believe what neon aqua ocean water looks like. It's just like somebody poured chlorinated pool water in it. You can see your feet in 5 feet. There's not much to do. The islands have not been built up yet..such a small place. But it's a place that everyone ought to see, and for sure a fabulous place for a honeymoon.

Preconstruction Condos
Mood:  energetic
Topic: Investing
Haven't written in too long. I have this other blog, the Real Estate Web Blog that keeps me busy, not to mention so many websites.

I've been so lucky to have run into a local "Davy" or perhaps more like Michael Landon. His name is David O'Connell, and I hope to maybe soon work for him exclusively. He is a developer and marketer of preconstruction and Myrtle Beach condos for sale. Seriously, he's about the nicest guy I've ever had the pleasure to know. (and so CUTE!) So I'm excited about the future. Stay tuned...

I'm also finding success in my little restaurant directory, which is now more of a directory for Myrtle Beach Rentals, too. I'm using it to promote rental condos with some of the big rental companies like Condo World and Hotels.com. It's showing well in the search engines and making some money from ads. The web design site is doing good now for Myrtle Beach real estate terms, too. I'm redesigning that to do more to showcase David's website. We are going to make him the "Prince of Myrtle Beach"...haha.

Excellent Prayer for Democrats Everywhere...

Now Playing: Inauguration Day (Bleah)
Topic: politics
Bush is my shepherd; I dwell in want.

He maketh logs to be cut down in national forests.

He leadeth trucks into the still wilderness.

He restoreth my fears.

He leadeth me in the paths of international disgrace for his ego's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of pollution and war, I will find no exit, for thou art in office.

Thy tax cuts for the rich and thy media control, they discomfort me.

Thou preparest an agenda of deception in the presence of thy religion.

Thou anointest my head with foreign oil.

My health insurance runneth out.

Surely megalomania and false patriotism shall follow me all the days of thy term, And my jobless child shall dwell in my basement forever.

Amen

New Real Estate Blog
Mood:  don't ask
Now Playing: The Loss of Kerry....:-(
Just to get it out of the way, it was a sad day yesterday. Oh well, four years and we'll try again.

I've started a new Real Estate Blog for those who are interested in new preconstruction real estate in Myrtle Beach and elsewhere if someone wants to post it.

This blog is now open for anyone to post. If it's vulgar it will be deleted, so please keep it clean if you do.

Later!

Fall at last!
Mood:  lucky
Now Playing: Vegas next week...
Topic: August Lull
The fall is here and the tourists are gone and the weather is WONDERFUL! Real estate in Myrtle Beach is going crazier than ever, and I'm enjoying being in the middle of it. I've made so many friends from agents everywhere that I feel like one of them..and it's really nice. Real estate marketing is going as strong as sales, and I'm now self-employed. Couldn't be happier. People out there looking for investments - You need to strongly consider the pre-construction condo deals in Myrtle Beach and parts of Florida. People are making money hands over fists. I wish I had enough to get into it. With all the mess in Florida, the re-building will probably really go nuts. Oh well, just wanted to post a happy post!

Hurricane Charley-Myrtle Beach Was Lucky
Mood:  lucky
Now Playing: Davy Jones in Myrtle Beach on Sept 5th!
Topic: August Lull
Old Charley didn't do much to us, thank heavens! Just a few trees blown over, signs messed up, and some electrical problems.

We feel deeply for the cities in Florida that suffered so much more.

The tourist season is again nearing its end, and everyone is happily looking forward to our nice fall weather and and quiet streets. It was a good summer, though...business was great. The real estate market is still screamingly high, and everyone is making money, it seems.

Davy Jones will be here in another couple of weeks! Get your tickets! He really puts on a show!

Two new websites for two new businesses... One, a brand new one of a kind condo and marina complex soon to be built on the Intracoastal Waterway in North Myrtle Beach. I think it will change the way many people think of coming to the beach for vacation!
Bahama Island Resort Condos and Marina

The other, a grand opening of a huge chain store for new and used Designer Baby and Children's Clothing and Furniture... Myrtle Beach Kids' Stuff-Once Upon a Child?
Called Once Upon a Child? In Myrtle Beach, this store will be great for local parents and tourists alike.

Topic: too many people....
They came and they stayed. Here it is 96 degrees and 110 with the heat index, and Myrtle Beach is so full you can't move. Stand in line for a restaurant..can't shop...it's a wonder there aren't more murders committed like this...haha.

New website up and running... http://www.myrtlebeachluxuryvacations.com

It's bright...:-)

Monkees news...they are planning a Monkees Convention on the weekend of October 2nd at the Silverton Casino in Las Vegas. Davy has a show scheduled there anyway, so we know one Monkee will be in attendence. If I can stay off the online casinos long enough to save some money I'll be there.

My beloved cat passed away on May 3rd. Sometimes I think it's almost not worth the pain losing them when you get a pet. But I couldn't live without one....

November
Now Playing: Davy Jones at the Front Street Station, Northumberland, PA 11/6 & 11/7
Starting to get cool when the sun goes down, but still fantastic in the daytime...mid 70's mostly. What a gorgeous time of year this is...

Halloween came and went without a hitch. Not my favorite holiday. Seems like everyone that you run into in restaurants or whatever are a little nuts.

Heading to Pennsylvania next week to see Davy and can't wait! It's in the 30's up there though!!!

Have another new website on the rise...

Now Playing: Meet the Royals with Davy Jones-A&E Sundays & Fridays 10pm
Hurricane Isabell blew right by us with hardly more than a slow rain all day. It slammed into the NC and Maryland coast like a sledgehammer, though. We all feel for all the folks affected.

Traffic is so nice now. No lines at the restaurants...the snow birds coming back. All is good with the world. Gorgeous weather in the low 80's and high 70's....

The Embers are playing this weekend in Garden City. If the Monkees were my childhood, the Embers were my young adulthood. We've all grown old together. They are still great, though.

Starting a new website for a friend and realtor. Be watching for Joe Russo, Realtor at JoRusso.com

Doesn't he look alot like James Bond?

Well, the last big weekend is upon us. With heat indexes up to 105, too many tourists in town again,

Many of the stores and businesses will go back to shorter hours beginning Monday. Rates go down, restaurants start giving locals discounts...all becomes right with the world...LOL.

Summer's almost over!

Summer is coming to a close and the tourists are dwindling. It's been a VERY hairy (productive?) summer, and I think everyone may be looking forward to a lessening of traffic and crowds. The fall and spring are the best of all times for Myrtle Beach. The weather is fabulous, the beach beautiful. You can even eat at a restaurant without a 2 hour wait!

A MYRTLE BEACH BLOG??
Sounds like an idea to me. I'm down here right in the middle of it. Right now we're in the midst of Harley Biker Week. Wrecks everywhere, noise everywhere, BIKES everywhere.



If you're planning on coming down and you want some information, just ask! I'll recommend my favorite places to stay, to eat, and to shop!
