It is a new year and the Falmouth Volunteers In Public Schools are meeting to encourage and inform anew adults in the community who might like to become mentors for High School students. My wife and I have done this in the past.  There is a particular meeting on the 16th at 7:30 in the morning at the Atria Woodbriar buildings. This is being described as a Youth Mentoring Open House. There will be coffee, breakfast and more explanation about the mentoring program with VIPS.   Each adult is paired with a student that just needs someone to talk to. Sometimes they are from great homes but the family is going through a crisis. Sometimes they are a child that has some issues which are affecting more than their school work. Sometimes they are just a kid that the administration thinks could use...

Will BitCoin Change Real Estate And Other Businesses There is a new currency development in all businesses, but some recent developments in the acceptance of BitCoinage for payment in real estate transactions will make this more commonly known. Bitcoin is an innovative payment network, and a new kind of money. It has no nation so to speak, and it has no central bank. Yet it is used the same as any other currency from any country. This is something worth studying as business people. Not because it is avant-garde, and not because it may be considered rebellious, but simply because it may prove to be very, very useful, and it may be able to streamline real estate transactions. For example, the current methods for transfer of funds at closing can sometimes slow up the closing process. I hav...

Robert Paul Properties Falmouth MA Christmas Stroll 2013 Last night was the Falmouth Christmas Stroll.  We turned the Falmouth office into a candy store where the candy was free. We had lots of visitors and strollers of all ages who came in and filled bags of free Christmas Candy. One of the fun events was that the Falmouth High School Band came in and warmed up. After they picked some treats, they played outside our office. They were great! We had a great time.  Today is the Falmouth Christmas Parade - the largest Christmas Parade in South East New England. Merry Christmas.
