DEREK PARRA, Olympian speed skater, Gold and Silver Medalist, 2002 Salt Lake City
In 1984, Derek began roller skating and by 1996 he had become the most decorated athlete in the history of the sport. As an inliner he was a three-time national champion, two-time overall World Champion, two-time World record holder (1500m and 42K) and earned eighteen individual gold medals. He was the most decorated athlete at 1995 Pan-Am Games winning 5 gold, 2 silver and a bronze medal. He had everything but an Olympic Medal. So in 1996, he switched from inlines to ice skates to chase after that medal. Just two years later he earned a spot on the 1998 US Olympic Team.
In February of 2001 he won a silver medal at the World Single Distance Championships (1500 meters) setting a new American Record and marking himself as "one to watch at the 2002 Olympic Games". Later that year, in November, he won a gold medal at the World Cup competition in Den Hague, Netherlands and became one of America's foremost medal contenders heading into the Olympics. In Salt Lake City he did not disappoint! After being selected to carry the World Trade Center flag into the opening ceremonies, the emotional evening inspired Derek through a remarkable 5000 meter performance on opening day of the Games. He briefly held the world record en route to a silver medal finish. That set the stage for a stunning world record finish and Olympic Gold Medal in the 1500 meter event!
Derek is also the first-ever Mexican American to compete in, and medal, in the Olympic Winter Games.

"...and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes" Revelation 7:17
Imagine being in the presence of the Most High. Seeing Him in all His glory, wonder, and splendor. We see the nail prints in our Savior's hands and we live in the fullness of what Heaven is...relationship, presence, and everlasting joy.
As we stroll the streets of gold, walking next to our angelic brother, we happen to see a book. The book is called The Book of Harvest. "What is this book about?" you ask.
It's this discussion that causes us to travel down a journey where we experience tears in Heaven. And then only God can wipe away the tears from our eyes.
Using the art of fictional writing, we will be discussing an imaginary book and how it applies to our walk with Christ and what we are meant to do while we are here on this Earth. We welcome our returning guest Brad Francis as we delve into what is the Book of Harvest. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air.

I will go over last weeks Nuggets of Gold before finishing off last weeks information dump! I will then relate my experience of legalland in England.
When I went back to England in 2010 I ended up at my mothers house and eventually helped her with a traffic ticket which she got for parking half of her car on the sidewalk (to get it out of the way of the traffic on a narrow road - otherwise it stuck out dangerously).
I created some very interesting techniques and found that they worked. I even partially used Jerry Kirks information on removing ones car from the system and was floored (extremely surprised) at how close the responses were to what Jerry got (he lives in Arkansas, USA). I also discovered the joys of defacing/changing a 'government' document by hand!
I will provide all the related material if I can redact the private information in time for tomorrow.
Please join me again for another interesting call!

How'd you guys like the Kevin Smith reference for a title? Yeah, how about that, a Kevin Smith joke. We're writing millions of gold plated zingers like that every day. Impressed, I bet.

As a homeowner, real estate broker and Realtor I know a few people in the real estate industry. From mortgage bankers to home inspectors, I tend to know them all. Last week, I was honored when one of those professionals asked me to list their home for sale. That’s always a big ego boost because, it’s kind of like winning a Emmy or Grammy. Sure, I don’t get a little gold statue or anything but, I do get the recognition from my peer and that is important. Unlike the general public, my peer, my colleague knows what to expect from his listing agent and the cool part is, he trust that I can provide it. Like my colleague, many of you out there will utilize a listing agent to sell your home and I thought to myself, wouldn’t you like to know what an industry insider looks for when he chooses a listing agent. Better yet, I put myself in your shoes and wondered how would I leverage my personal knowledge of the real estate industry and my local market expertise to pick the right agent to list my own home? Well, this really got my wheels a turning because, I stopped and asked myself, do I provide the same level of service to my listing clients, that I would expect from a agent listing my home? I am proud to say, Yes, most of the time, I think I do. In fact, it was this very thought process that lead me to create my Top 10 Expectations of a Listing Agent. The show today, is going to be all about what someone like myself, a experienced real estate broker would look for in a listing agent and how you, as a homeowner, with little to no real estate experience can use my top 10 expectations to ensure you choose the correct agent for your home.
