Eat Your Veggies and Fruits - 07/31/07 08:38 PM
I want to talk about an article that was recently in our local paper. It was about a 7 year study of women who had breast cancer and were effectively treated. They told the women to eat a certain amount of veggies and fruits and to keep track of the calories they consumed. This was to determine what effect the veggies and fruits had on breast cancer reoccurring. At the end of this study, they determined that eating fruits and vegetables had no effect whatsoever in stopping cancer from reoccurring. I'm a breast cancer survivor and although I had surgery, I decided to (9 comments)

What is a Buyer's Agent? - 07/20/07 11:55 AM

While some homeowners elect to sell their property themselves without the expertise of a licensed real estate firm, most do use the services of a realtor. The Seller's Agent The seller is represented by the real estate agency that listed the property. A seller's agent WORKS ONLY FOR THE SELLER and has legal obligations, called fiduciary duties, to the seller. These include reasonable care, undivided loyalty, confidentiality, and full disclosure. Seller's agents often work with buyers, but they do not represent the buyers. The Buyer's Agent A buyer's (2 comments)
North Wildwood Waterpark and Hotel - 07/19/07 09:47 PM
Great things are in store for the Wildwoods. North Wildwood City Council approved a 90,000 square-foot pirate-themed indoor waterpark where Seaport Pier now stands. Construction will include a water park on the east side of the Boardwalk between 22nd and 23rd Avenues and a 16-story 425-room hotel on the west side. There will be an overhead walkway linking the two properties. Also planned is 3 restaurants and a 600-car parking garage. If the project receives all the necessary approvals, it could be open in 2010. This could bring 300-400 year rounds jobs to the area besides all the construction jobs. Groundbreaking is expected in (2 comments)
