New York real estate and A thanksgiving history quiz. I got 13 out of 20.

I have just completed gleaning almost 2000 real estate web site urls so the staff at REindex.com can review them.  I have been searching hither and yon for sites that belong to the local agents and companies for possible placement in the New York real estate pages of REindex.com.

Now we get to visit all 2000 of those web sites to see which ones show their own listings.  Then we'll link to each of those sites from each of the towns where they have actual listings. Hey, somebody has to help the listing agents and brokers!  I am one (a listing broker) so I know.

This is my only frivolous entry for November, so enjoy. OK, this part is a mindless entry. Someone wanted me to take this on-line thanksgiving quiz to see if they could guess at the answers better than I could, and thus have bragging rights.  If you think you "know it all" about thanksgiving, gobble it up.

Here's the link to the thanksgiving quiz. 


Now back to work!  LOL.

Happy listing and selling!

I got only 9 correct.  Oh! Well!  That's an interesting project with REindex.

I got 18 correct, but only because my nickname in college was "Turkey" because I thought they were fascinating birds. Unfortunately, the quiz has a "historical myth" error for question 5. Benjamin Franklin never lobbied to make the Turkey the national bird rather than the Bald Eagle. What Franklin did say, in a letter to his daughter in 1784, was this:

"For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.

"With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District. He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our Country . . .

"I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America . . . He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on."
