I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Ines and Nick yesterday.  Finally!  More about that later.  Right now I want to help Nick, who has a great big heart, spread the word about his fundraiser. When we hear of impoverished families we think far away  But right here in our own back yard are people who need help too.  There's a program in Palm Beach County that strives to make lives better for children who might otherwise fall into the vicious cycle of child abuse and neglect.  I'm talking basics here.  No one's bemoaning not having an iPod.  It's simple stuff that's needed.  Things like diapers, formula, food and a safe place to live.  The Healthy Families program is part of Hugs For Kids.  They have a mission.  It states "Mission: To prevent child abuse and neglect by providing support...

Call me old fashion, but I still get the Palm Beach post delivered every day.  I enjoy reading it with my morning coffee.  Lately I have noticed a lot more mortgage companies advertising all over the paper from Sports to Local and of course the Business Section.  From running a Mortgage Company, I know this is a very expensive form of advertising.  Not that the Palm Beach Post is over priced but larger newspapers in general, print advertising is expensive.  Which brings me to the reason for this post.  Many of these advertisements claim "No Closing Costs", "Free Appraisal"  I have to tell you the last time I checked, people who work expect to get paid.  I believe donating your time to a charity is a marvelous thing however, originating loans is not a charity. Now I am not saying I have ...

Ok so I am a proud Dad.  Yesterday (5/21/2007) My son Graduated from Pre-School in West Palm Beach.  It was a great ceremony with the children wearing cap and gown.  The school did a great video at the end that showed all the children throughout the year.  With the parents supplying pictures of the children when they where babies and what they look like now.   His school really out did them selves with this event.  I have mixed emotions it was nice to see him graduate but I also realize he is now moving on to real school.  He is know longer a little boy.

Located at 700 FLORIDA MANGO ROAD just west of I-95 in West Palm Beach, Florida you will find a leisurely afternoon of sporting fun at the National Croquet Center. S    The motto of the center is that the only requirement to participate is a good pair of flat soled shoes.  Croquet has long been a sport for Royalty and the elite, but in West Palm Beach, Florida you can join in an outing with as many people as you desire.You see... unlike a foursome in golf, a Croquet match can have as many as 192 participants!  So corporate groups, bridal parties, bachelorette parties and even create a competitive tournament with other colleagues over a few wickets!The club itself is a Florida Keys style clubhouse complete with private rooms for meetings, parties and dining events.  They can accomodate p...
