What the Blip...I have done my best to keep up with advances in client conact through various social media, but this one step too far.  The newest entry into to apparent need for people to share personal information (way too much IMHO)?  Blippy joins Facebook and Twitter.Blippy is a service that allows you to automatically share your credit card transactions as you make them. This includes the place you made the purchase, the amount, and in some cases, the item. This is all placed in a social stream where other Blippy users can comment on and “like” the various items.Call me old school, but this is way too much information!      CHECK IT OUT!

Homes for Sale in Barnegat - November, 2009 Barnegat, NJ Housing Market ReportWhat's going on in Barnegat, NJ?  The number of homes for sale in Barnegat is leveling and the sale of single family homes in Barnegat nearly doubled in November when compared to the same month in 2008! The median sale price also increased, bucking national trends.  The December, 2009 Barnegat Housing Market Report should give us a better idea of whether this upswing in the sale of single family homes in Barnegat was fluke due to the expected expiration of the $8,000 first time home buyers tax credit, or a sign of a recovering housing market.    Barnegat, NJ   NewListings UnderContract Expired Sold Days onMarket MedianSold Price November2009 49 28 21 36 131 $289,500  At the same time last year...

It's spring at the Jersey Shore, the rains have stopped (at least for a few days); yard work, gardening and outdoor activities have taken the place of TV, books and games.              For many this means a return to the outdoors, oftentimes with pets in tow! While most Jersey Shore residents and visitors are careful to dispose of empty water bottles, sandwich wrappers, cigarette butts and other trash in designated containers, many are not aware that pet waste is one of the culprits in non point source pollution of our wetlands, bays and ocean.                                     Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution, unlike pollution from industrial and sewage treatment plants, comes from many sources.  It happens when rain or snow melt moves through the ground and carries with it pollution....
