Swimming Upstream - 05/25/09 08:51 PM
Today I had my first experience at the fish elevator at the Holyoke Dam in Holyoke, MA. I have lived in Western MA my whole life and somehow missed out on this curiosity until today. At the Hadley Falls in Holyoke Ma the annual migration of anadromous fish is no small affair. A visit to the website explains the technical aspects. I stood watching the fish through the observation windows with my daughters and I listened to my guide and date explain to us that these fish are swimming up the river to mate and then die. This brutal trip takes (3 comments)
In my over 20 year career the one client that has always been a favorite is the first time homebuyer. What isn't to love about the flush of excitement as a young adult sheds the protection of parents, landlords or school and makes the decision to strike out on their own? Their energy is contagious and they are open to education and guidance. These fledgling buyers almost always do everything on time and as you requested because they don't have the bad habits of more "experienced" buyers. I am working with a series of first time homebuyers lately, most of (5 comments)

Why My Mother is the Most Amazing Woman - 05/10/09 06:49 PM
Meet my mom, Shelley Weber. I know you probably think your mom is the most amazing mom, but my mom is more than just that: she is the most amazing woman I know.
My mom has been at turns: a nurse, go-go dancer, sister, best friend, wife, business woman, bridal gown saleswoman, x-ray technician, meditation specialist, guitar player and singer, aunt, militant mom, poet, photographer, artist, cheerleader (for my sister and I) and most of all, my mentor and role model. In every situation my mom would bring positive thoughts, care and concern and proactive energy. She taught me (3 comments)

April 28, 2009, Westfield, MA...no one knows how to dress today. It is 95 degrees and everyone is complaining about it being too hot, too soon. The daffodils and tulips are wilted in protest and I didn't unpack my summer clothes yet...what happened to spring? May 5th, 2009, Westfield, MA...I sit in my office shivering. I unpacked the summer clothes and now I am ready to go unpack the sweaters! Again I sit wondering where did Spring go? It is raining, which isn't so odd, but it is CCCCCoold today. Isn't it supposed to be warm in May? Well, after living (6 comments)
