The last few days have been really hot sticky humid days here in Connecticut, so I have been having to water the grass and flower more so than usual.  As I was watering the flowers in front of the house I started to notice that they were beginning to show signs that summer is coming to an end and that fall is around the corner. It is amazing how mother nature knows what time of the season it is, no matter what the weather is like it knows its time.  It knows when it is time to bloom and when it is time to let its leaves fall.  This made me wonder, do we have the same sense when it comes to our business?  Do we do what needs to be done during our seasons? Do we plant when we need to plant? Do we water and grow during our growing season? And do we fully take advantage of our harvest time...

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast, but unfortunately because of time constraints I don't get to have a full breakfast as often as I would like, and because it is my favorite meal I will sometimes have it as my dinner meal.  When I do get a chance to go out for breakfast Mitchell's On Main Street In Cromwell, Connecticut is my favorite place to go. Mitchell's On Main Street In Cromwell, Connecticut is not fancy as you can see from the pictures, but I do not go there because of looks, I go there because of the quality of the food, and Mitchell's On Main Street In Cromwell, Connecticut is as good as it gets.  They have three locations in Connecticut, Mitchell's on the River at 273 Meadow Road - Rocky Hill, Mitchell's Coffee House at  2010 Silas Deane Hwy. - Rocky Hill, and the one ...

  This weekend was a great weekend for Yankee Fans, the Yankees not only broke an 8 game losing streak against the Red Sox, but they SWEPT them.  That is not the only reasons why this was a great weekend for Yankee Fans.  The Yankees held the Red Sox scoreless for 31 consecutive innings, and were one inning short of holding them scoreless for three consecutive games. Friday night's game between A.J. Burnett and Josh Beckett was a classic.  The Yankees and Red Sox went 14 innings of scoreless baseball until the Yankees scored 2 runs to end the game on a walk off home run by Alex Rodríguez.  And last night capped off a perfect weekend with the Red Sox going ahead 2-1 in the eight inning, to only have the Yankees come back with four runs in the bottom of the eight inning and win the game ...

The Topsy Turvy Tomato Tree Really Works!!!  I ordered both the tomato and strawberry Topsy Turvy planters this year, and I have been amazed at how well the work, and how easy it is to take care of the tomatoes and strawberries.  I have the planters on my deck so they are easy to get to, to water the plants at any time of the day. I ordered them late so the tomatoes are just starting to come in, but as you can see they have started to come in, and will be nice and red before to long. I have been getting strawberries for about a month now, a few ripen every couple of days.  However, I think that next year I will plant cherry tomatoes in the strawberry planter, and the larger tomatoes in the larger planter.  I will also plant them earlier in the year since I will already have the planters...

When I do a Mortgage Loan for a Borrower, one of the first things that I always advise them to do is to replace all of the locks on their new house as soon as possible, and the place that I tell them to go to is Smith & Bishel Hardware In Middletown, Connecticut.  They can go to one of the big boys like Home Depot, or Lowe's, but non of those places will give them the type of personal and professional service like they will get from Scott Bishel at Smith & Bishel Hardware In Middletown, Connecticut.

Cedar Village Planned Residential Community, Middletown, Connecticut, also known as Julia Terrace, is located in the South Farms area of Middletown, Connecticut near RT 9.  It is one of the five Planned Residential Communities that were built in Middletown, Connecticut during the 70's and 80's.  The other four were Wesleyan Hills, Sand Hill Road, Knox Boulevard, and The Farms. Unlike the Wesleyan Hills Planned Residential Community which I wrote about yesterday, Cedar Village Planned Residential Community, Middletown, Connecticut did not follow the original plan that it was supposed to be developed under.  Cedar Village was suppose to be developed in three different phase, which it was, but before the first phase was completed the original builder filled bankruptcy and left the sub con...

  After 32 years I finally had to replace my roof, and when that time came to find Roofers in Middletown, CT.,  there was no question in my mind as to who the "Roofing Company Of Choice In Middletown, Connecticut" would be, Turner & Sons.  Turner & Sons have been replacing roofs windows, and siding in the Middletown Connecticut area since 1956.  Hayden Turner, the father and owner, is not only a professional in the way he runs his business, but has also been a tremendous asset to the community out the years through his involvement in civic, charitable, sports and other community organizations. I first met Hayden when our two sons were just starting out playing soccer here in Middletown.  Both boys are now 27 years old, and my son Matthew is teaching, and Doug Turner is being trained by...
