Darren Kincaid - Friday, December 10, 2010

How can we get our children to read more over the holiday break?  We’ll have to be sneaky in this one parents.  Are you expected to receive Cards in the mail from family members and friends?  Have your children read those cards aloud to you.  You can even reverse it and let you children write the cards that you’ll be sending out.

Here are some other suggestions to keep kids reading over the holiday break:

  • Let the children read the ingredients on the holiday recipe box and you can bake them together.
  • Set some time aside to “show off” your kids reading skills.
  • Make holiday reading a tradition in your home.
  • Read Winter stories

Family Roasted Turkey

Darren Kincaid - Monday, November 22, 2010

It’s Turkey Time!!!

Baking a turkey can be fun.  You can turn this into a family event and family roast the bird.  Most of the larger family members don’t show up until the food is nearly ready to serve but for the immediate family who lives in your apartment with you, then can join in baking process.  Bake your turkey until the skin is a light golden color.  Then cover loosely with a foil tent during the last 45 minutes of baking.

The turkey is done when the thigh meat reaches an internal temperature of 180 degrees F. To get an accurate reading, be sure that your thermometer is not touching the bone.

This video will show you a bit more about roasting a turkey the right way.

Some of Us are Thermostats Others are Thermometers

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, November 10, 2010

How determined are you to make a change in your life and for your life? As I’ve been blogging recently, there is a psychology of change. It doesn’t just happen. You have to prepare for it, weighing the options, motivation, and ability to see it through.

I’ve talked about DissatisfactionDiscipline, and Attitude. Now, I want to address your personality type. Are you a Thermometer or a Thermostat?

The Thermometer takes a reading on the situation. It’s a simple measurement. It’s hot, cold, normal or abnormal. There is no analysis or consideration, just a report, a number. A Thermometer personality looks at a situation as a given. My job is lousy and I’m stuck. The market is lousy so I can’t sell my house. This is the “It is what it is” mentality.

The Thermostat, on the other hand, adjusts. Just like a thermostat in your home can make the room more comfortable by changing the temperature, a Thermostat personality recognizes that change is possible. A rainy Monday is not the forecast for a bleak day or week ahead. They take what is given to them, assess it, determine its importance, and either deal with it or move on. They recognize that the temperature can change so when things are getting hot, you can cool it down by making the right moves.

So, take the time right now to identify — with total honesty — which personality type you are: thermometer or thermostat. And, if you’re a thermometer in need of changing, what will you do to change the way you reach to situations? How can you be better prepared to control your environment?

Once you’ve conquered your ability to be swayed by events around you, you’re ready to step up the next rung of the change ladder.

Think Again About Renting if you are Currently Buying

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, November 03, 2010

We all need a place to call home but even with the real estate downturn, many people continue to think that buying a home is a good investment and a way for them to build wealth.  When times were good, this was not really the case for most people.  Wherever you choose to live, make sure it’s for the right reasons.  Owning a home can be rewarding. Renting an apartment home at Abberly Place can also be very rewarding.  Don’t just take our word for it – check out this article on Yahoo Finance – Why Your How is not the investment you think it is.

If you bought in Rochester, N.Y., in 1980, you would have seen only a mediocre 4% annual growth for the next 25 years.

• If you bought in Dallas in 1986, as the oil boom went bust, your home wouldn’t have appreciated at all before 1998.

These are just a couple of points to consider and think about.   Leave your comments bellow and let us know what you think about buying and renting
