It was a memorable challenge and exceptional competition, with everything one could ask for and maybe a bit extra. Rain that just wouldn't go away, the best players in the world, competing head to head with Nationalistic pride on the line. All the weather problems had matches being carried on into the dark, and then to the next day. What should have been a 3 day event turned into 4. In the end, it was the flat stick that broke the back of the US Team, putters failed, and to anyone that has ever played the game, when the putter fails, there's a strain placed on every other club. For the US Team, it was apparent. Tiger Woods typifies this as his flat stick started working early and had him challenging the course. Something that he's lacked all year. So too did this display itself with th...

As real estate agents we understand the necessity of respecting zoning in order to preserve the values of homes, and also to prevent homeowners from creating a burden on the resources available on a given plot of land. This is more critical where homes are serviced by wells and septic systems. Also being a real estate agent, with a reasonably good sized property, I need to make sure that I do not get unwanted squatters trying to move in and take over a portion of my property. Last year I noticed that a bird had created a home in one of the light posts that line my driveway. I dropped some anti deer treatment into the house and thought that I had rid my self of these squatters. Unfortunately, as I came into my driveway today, I heard knocking very close to the house. As I looked about, I...

It's officially Fall and the pool at this facility was officially closed for the season. The residents had a great time this summer and nobody was hurt, or thrown into the deep end of the pool. The lifeguards were ever vigilant and their skills were never called upon. While there might be a few warm days left, the upkeep required to maintain would have been excessive and unjustified for a few hours of pleasure. So we say good bye for now, and see you again next spring.

Congratulations to the new buyer (and of course our Seller)!  The home was priced right, and showed great.  It was on the market 12 days and closed Friday for $298,500. It is a 4 Bedroom, 3 Full bath Colonial with many ugrades.     Pour a glass of lemonade and relax on the beautiful front porch of this quality built home with many upgrades.  Desirable cul-d-sac location, C/A, crown molding, chair rail, irrigation systems, patio and deck. Truly a must see home.Great Commuter local.

If you have ever gone into a lumber yard you may have seen people picking up framing lumber and trying to sight edge them looking for curvature, or more precisely lack of curvature. This is in the belief that when they use the lumber, there will be less likelihood that the wood will turn when used and not have nails popping and damaging a finished product. Experienced builders will opt for kiln dried lumber, which has already had the majority of moisture removed by 'baking' the wood slowly at controlled temperatures. While driving home today, I noticed a bit of curvature that I never noticed before. At first I thought it might have been the result of an accident recently, and that I could possibly find some scrappings or residue on the pole that would verify this. Nothing This pole has ...
