A Short Sale Completed in Waterbury ConnecticutWith the hot market of the past 2 years people have seemed unaware of their neighbors that have been in trouble with their mortgages. People have still been in trouble and life has not been the best for some. People still get sick; jobs are lost, and relationships may have been harder due to the Pandemic.One homeowner in Waterbury hit that perfect storm of problems, with a divorce and a lost revenue stream. Keeping up with the court ordered settlement funds left no room for paying the mortgage. There was an issue with the primary mortgage under water as well as a secondary HUD note from a previous loan modification.With the acceptance of the short sale, the seller was relieved of both notes with a waiver of deficiency for all obligations.

“Make Sense Calculations!  Having observed the activities at COP26, I have set an ambitious target to phase out my alcohol consumption within the next 29 years, as part of an impressive plan to improve my health. The program will see me continue to drink as normal for the foreseeable future, before reducing consumption in 2051 when I turn 92. I want to assure friends and family it will not affect my drinking plans in the short or medium term. It is important not to rush the switch to non-alcoholic beverages. It is not realistic to transition to zero alcohol overnight. This requires a steady, phased approach where nothing changes for at least two decades. Indeed, I may need to make additional investments in beer consumption in the short term, to make sure no night is worse off. I also in...

Fall Has arrived in Connecticut, which means it is time for me to begin my Progression Of Fall Colors series I started Ten years ago.  This is a series I hoped to continue for many years, and have been able to do so far. The first two years the pictures were of a farm which is only about a minute walk from my house.  Eight years ago I decided to change the location for the 2014 Progression Of Fall Color Series to a lake about 5 minutes from my house on RT17.  I tried that location for two years, but the colors were not as good as I expected them to be.  So six years ago I decided to change locations again to a site at Lyman's Orchards in Middlefield, CT.  But once again that site did not produce the colors I had hoped for, so three year ago I decided to keep it simple and do my Progres...

Today is Veteran's Day 2022, A Day To Honor Our Veterans, and our Men and Women who are serving in our Armed Forces.I hope that everyone takes a moment out of there day to say thank you to either a Veteran they know, or one of the Men and Women presently serving.  It only takes a minute to do this, but the impact and meaning it has on the one you say thank you to is greater than you can imagine. Those who have served our country did so willingly and without expectation of anything in return.  They did it for the honor of serving the land of opportunity, and to secure the freedoms we enjoy.Many restaurants throughout the Country will be honoring our Veterans with free meals, and discounts.  So let us join all the organization who are honoring our Veterans today and show our appreciation ...

Friday Flags at the Gazebo Watertown CT for Veteran's DayJust across the road from the Town Hall Annex in Watertown CT is a small island on which is a gazebo.  It is always seasonally decorated.As I drove by, it was appropriate that I take a photo of the Gazebo especially as it was so close to the November 11 Veteran's Day Holiday.It was a bright day and the red maples in the background made the flags and the Gazebo seem brighter.November 11 was originally Armistice Day, and the end of World War I. It has since been renamed Veterans Day.  This holiday is a celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common goodFriday Flags at the Gazebo Watertown CT For Veteran's Day

“Paul Newman to the Rescue” A middle-aged Westport, CT woman is at the counter of an ice cream shop when she sees Paul Newman walk in. Of course, she is madly in love with him, but determined not to break the town's unwritten rule of not accosting him, controls her breathing, steels herself, pays for her ice cream and starts to leave. She then realizes she doesn't have her ice cream. She goes back and tells the counter person that he didn't give her the ice cream. He answers that he definitely did give it to her. She asks him, then where is it? He answers he doesn't know, but he gave it to her. By this time, they're both getting angry and attracting attention. Then she feels a tap on her shoulder, turns around and there's Paul Newman, piercing baby blues and all. He says, "Excuse me, ma...
