Historic Tax Credits Threatened - 05/12/11 02:54 PM
Historic Preservation tax credits are a way for homeowners, and more often, businesses, to justify putting money into preserving our built heritage. However, the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled that a business partnership using the tax credits to restore a historic commercial building is a "disguised sale" of property that is therefore subject to federal income tax, as opposed to a distribution of tax benefits among partners. This means that 35% of of an investor's capital contribution to a project is now being collected by the U.S. Treasury. On a $2 milliion project, this means that $700,000 of financing (0 comments)
Wilmington Garden Day was this past Saturday, an annual event done to benefit children's charities. We started out at WynEden in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. It was said to be inspired by Muir Woods, in Marin County, California. Above are just 2 highlights from this property, a bamboo forest and a one acre pond, and beautiful orchids (Cypripedium reginae, I think).
Next are 2 completely different gardens, Fair Hill Farm, in Chadds Ford, an expansive country spread with areas ranging from a garden built around an old barn foundation, to a formal boxwood garden, to a Royal Paulownia (1 comments)

And the young dancers from Grupo Folklorico Yaretzi had a surprise in store--dancing a whole number while balancing glasses of water on their heads! And not a drop was spilled on the spectacular costumes!
A highlight of the festival was the crowning of Miss (Sen~orita) Cinco de Mayo by a man who (I think--but it was all in Spanish) represented Univision TV, (3 comments)
Cinco de Mayo Celebrated in Kennett Square - 05/01/11 07:50 PM
The Ballet Folklorico Yaretzi (Aztec for "you will always be loved") of Norristown, Pennsylvania performed at the Cinco de Mayo celebration in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, on May 1, 2011. Since 2006, the Festival has been sponsored in Kennett Square by Casa Guanajuato, a group promoting Mexican culture. The Cinco de Mayo Festival celebrates the 1862 Battle of Puebla, in which Mexico defeated forces led by Napoleon III of France. The many mushroom farms in the area have attracted workers from south of the border, so there was a big crowd present, and the program was in Spanish, with only (2 comments)
