Post Pandemic: A Return To Social Activities People love to be socially involved and to have a good time with family and friends. With the start of this pandemic last March, the world has gone into a cocoon of isolation and a halt to large gatherings.This summer the signs are all positive as the Nation is almost 50% vaccinated and restrictions are being lifted allowing for greater mobility.   For us, we look forward to moving a bit more but with some caution. Last year we had a family vacation set for Aruba in July which was canceled and we are not comfortable enough with flying to reschedule.We are planning a couple of day trips this summer. One of which will be a few days touring Acadia National Park in Maine in early August. We are looking forward to the natural environs of that seas...

Summer Pool Safety Tips in Central CT School is out for the summer and with the weather getting hotter, kids will be looking to get some relief from the heat in the back yard pools.  It's also the time to give them some reminders of pool safety and etiquette. Care must be taken around pools so that no one will get hurt. If there are slides or diving boards, then do not use them while someone is near and could get hurt by someone else diving. Make sure that the pool chemicals are maintained properly to avoid a build-up of algae. A simple titration with a test kit, or use of special papers will give the pool owner an indication of how much chemicals need to be added. Also when adding chlorine, take caution to open the containers in a well ventilated area. Don't open the containers in the ...

The Current Market Is By-passing An Entire Group of Home Buyers The Pandemic that hit our country and the world early in 2020 has changed the way people live their lives, and quite possibly for years to come.  Space has become the desired prize as people look to stay safe. The perfect scenario for home sales took over with record low mortgage rates and sellers being able to get much more equity out of their homes as the supply of homes on the market dwindled. What has happened in the market is an entire segment of home buyers find themselves shut out of the  opportunity to get their starter homes.  In the larger cities here in Connecticut and most likely across the country affordable homes for most people no longer exist. For example, the houses that were once available in Central Conne...

Happy Flag Day  June 14, 2021While it is not known as a national holiday and business will continue as usual today, it deserves a day of recognition as a symbol of our great country.Some noteworthy days as relates to the flag: January 1, 1776: The first United States flag, the “Grand Union,” was displayed by George Washington. Of course all know that it was credited to Betsy Ross as the designed and creator of the first flag. June 14, 1777: The Stars and Stripes were adopted by the Continental Congress as the Flag of the United States. June 14, 1877: Flag Day was observed nationally for the first time on the 100th anniversary of the Stars and Stripes—and continues today.  In 1814, the flag flying after a heavy bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812 with the British was the i...

Roses Are Always Pleasant To The EyeAs I was finishing up some work at my parents house, I looked over to their back fence and realized that I  needed a few extra minutes.  I did a little pruning and clearing and then too the photos.They are brilliant and have no smell, which I understand is a good thing as the non-fragrant flowers last much longer than those that have a bouquet.They are pretty and will be around for maybe another week or so and then it's wait until next summer. Wordless Wednesday (Almost) Roses Are Always Pleasant To The Eye
