Deer Meadow Ridge visitors, Rich Lemke and Judy Oney, won tickets to "A Taste of Loveland" fundraiser held at the new Embassy Suites in Loveland.  The Foothills Wine & Food Experience featured over 20 wine, beer and liquor distributors and more than 30 local restaurants that donated tastings of every variety of food and drink!  Touring the furnished models, open 11am-5pm daily, can be more than viewing the latest in home design and decor!

How To Manage Your Online Reputation
Go ahead, Google yourself. Everyone else is. Whether you're an adult or a teenager, what they find can affect your personal and professional life. Did you know employers and colleges search the internet for information about candidates before they make selection decisions? Here's what you should do to protect your online reputation:

Find out what's out there about you (or your company)...
  • Search your name on Google, but don't forget Yahoo, Bing and Ask. Put quotation marks around your name, and use keywords (your city) to narrow the search. Try it with your nickname or middle initial.
  • Search again but click on "Images" and again on "Videos."
  • Check alumni sites, genealogy sites etc. Ask your friends if you're in a video they've uploaded to YouTube.
Be proactive about protecting your reputation...
  • Safeguard your personal information, particularly on social networking sites. Open a secondary email account or use a different persona for social sites, chatrooms, web forums, etc.
  • Use privacy settings to set the right level of control, especially for Facebook and MySpace. Don't give access to "Everyone." That makes it visible to search engines, too.
  • Set up a Google Profile. Go to www.google.com/profiles to build a personal page that helps people get the right information when they search your name. You can do the same thing on Yahoo at profiles.yahoo.com.
  • Monitor your online presence by signing up for Google or Yahoo Alerts. They'll let you know if someone searches for certain phrases, such as your name or company name.
  • If you find something embarrassing, talk to the source. Even better, create positive content (write a blog or an article) that will appear on search results.

Fun Facts and Laughs . . .
How To Search For Recalled Products . . .
  • The FDA has recalled a hydrolyzed vegetable protein used in such foods as hot dogs, dips, salad dressings and snack foods. For a searchable list of recalled products go to: www.foodsafety.gov.
A Simple Trick For Whiter Teeth . . .
  • Want whiter teeth?  Eat apples! They contain an acid that helps dissolve stains and the chewing action mimics tooth brushing.
Have A Laugh . . .
  • Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
  • No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.
  • Always remember you are unique -- just like everyone else.
  • Never test the depth of water with both feet.

Brain Teaser Answer:
The dollar sign!  FYI, it probably came from the Mexican or Spanish "P's" for pesos, or piastres, or pieces of eight. Theory is the "S" came to be written over the "P," developing the "$" mark.

Real Estate Q&A . . .
Q.  Are Home Buyers Satisfied With New-Home Construction?

A. Yes, customer satisfaction with home builders and new-home quality has improved significantly, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2009 U.S. New-Home Builder Customer Satisfaction Study.

Customer satisfaction in 2009 was up 32 points over 2008. Markets with the highest levels included Orange County/San Diego, CA; Sacramento, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Inland Empire, CA; and Tampa, FL. In fact, overall satisfaction increased in 22 of the 23 markets that were also surveyed in 2008. The importance of workmanship and materials factored high in the results.

J.D. Power and Associates attributes the improvements to fierce competition in the marketplace. They say this is great news for new-home buyers since builders are offering high levels of quality, value and service at relatively low prices. Because many builders have an inventory of homes completed, buyers can have a smoother experience with fewer delays.

For details on builder rankings in all 24 U.S. markets, go to: www.jdpower.com/homes.
