comes this little bit of inspirational thinking - “Nothing is impossible. The word itself says, ‘I’m possible!’’” (Audrey
I like Hepburn’s line of thinking. It is directing you
away from pondering the seemingly impossible things in life and towards using
your imagination and intelligence to instead think of all of the things that
you might do to make it possible. To my way of thinking, it is a much better use
of your time.
If you start with the positive attitude that all things
are possible, some perhaps more difficult than others, but still possible; then
you can direct your creative juices towards finding that possible solution. I
suspect that a lot of things don’t get done in life because the people involved
were too content to believe that they are impossible, so why try. Some may know
that they are possible, but have decided that the effort is not worth the

I'm a pre-Baby Boomer who just happens to be into technology and the Web. I created and maintain 6 Web sites - three for real estate (see above for links), one for the Milford Historical Society, one for teh Milford Car Show and one for my church. I've been a Realtor for a little over 10 years.
Prior to selling real estate, I had a 30 year career selling and marketing computers and related software and services for a variety of IT industry companies, many of them now long gone - Burroughs, Digital Equipment, Compaq, HP, EMC and SGI. I still keep up with what's happening in that space.
Now, I focus upon real estate, with a specialty in historic houses in and around the Milford, Michigan area. I'm also focusing more andmore on the needs of aging home buyers, since that is a category into which I fall myself.
