Seinfeld. I watched the series and loved them all. The entire concept of the show was brilliant I thought: “A Show about absolutely Nothing.” It worked!
When I heard one of the cast members was going to be signing Autographs I thought of all the Seinfeld lovers I know and went down in the hopes of getting one. The ad read something like (and I’m paraphrasing here): Come in and donate some non perishable food and get an autograph by Larry Thomas. Best of all, it was right here on Long (35 comments)
The Feng Shui of a New York City Apartment by Feng Shui Long Island & NY - 11/28/09 06:30 PM
The Feng Shui of a New York City Apartment New York City Apartments and Brownstones are very special places especially when applying Feng Shui Principles. Feng Shui in NYC Apartments can be a bit of a challenge but they are ALWAYS fun. New York Feng Shui Consultants Laura Cerrano and Carole Provenzale recently went back in time in an old, beautiful brownstone in New York City. This beautiful NYC Apartment was located near Central Park and is just over 100 years old according to its owner. It rises to three levels and what we found most beautiful were the architectural details. (17 comments)
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Safe Thanksgiving!
In this New York Feng Shui House we think of Gratefulness. We also think of Giving Back or Tithing. A certain percentage of each Feng Shui Consultation goes to my two favorite charites.
One is St. Jude's Children's Hospital. We all have a soft spot in our hearts for children and I believe Danny Thomas did a wonderful thing by creating such a place. Where there is hope for Children AND their families while they all face a very uncertain and frightening future.
The other place that has stolen (25 comments)
New York Feng Shui Blessings and a BLOG. That's all it Took! - 11/24/09 04:26 PM
New York Feng Shui Blessings and a Blog---That's all it Took! I don't believe anyone starts Blogging with the realization of all the incredible things it can bring you. I certainly didn't. I certainly didn't expect a BLOG here on Activerain to help my mom get a new dog..... My BEST ActiveRain SUCCESS Story: He Had me at Hello : ) I was thrilled that my brother's friend had called and that we'll be visiting shortly. But I was not at ALL prepared for what followed that phone call the following evening-now TWO days after the Feng Shui Blessing on our (22 comments)
New York Feng Shui -- Sometimes all you Need is a Blessing and a Blog! - 11/23/09 09:24 PM
New York Feng Shui-Sometimes all you Need is a Blessing and a Blog! There are Feng Shui Blessings and Feng Shui Space Clearings. As New York Feng Shui Practitioners we use whatever methods our clients like but I have to confess that Black Sect methods of Blessings are particularly powerful. I've seen them work over and over again like magic-and know there is something very deep about them. The other day while getting ready for a Feng Shui Consultation on Long Island, Laura was preparing what we would need. She asked me when the last time we'd blessed OUR home had (17 comments)
The Business of Feng Shui in New York by Feng Shui Consultant Carole Provenzale - 11/22/09 03:20 PM
The BUSINESS of Feng Shui in New York I don't believe when Feng Shui came to New York it was meant to be ‘strictly business.' I don't believe back then ANY of us thought about Feng Shui as a ‘great way to make money,' or a ‘terrific business opportunity.' I DO believe that we did it because we were fascinated with it and after trying it, found out that Feng Shui WORKS. When you're that excited about something you want to delve deeper and learn more. The more we could learn about Feng Shui (and continue to learn to this day1), (19 comments)
What's so GREAT about Localism? It's a TREASURE! by Feng Shui Long Island Consultant Carole Provenzale - 11/13/09 07:01 AM
What's so GREAT about Localism? It's a TREASURE.... There are some people, especially "Newbies" to Activerain that may not see the Advantages of posting to Localism. As a Feng Shui Consultant who lives and play on Long Island, NY and in New York City, I love writing about the different areas I find myself in. I have many New York City locations including posts on Central Park and different parts of Manhattan. As I travel all over Long Island, I capture pictures and write about Feng Shui in a particular place or just about this lovely Island itself. Several months ago (37 comments)
Real Estate Agents: Tell Buyers the TRUTH!! by Feng Shui Long Island NY Consultant - 11/11/09 09:40 AM
Real Estate Agents: Tell Buyers the TRUTH! by Feng Shui Long Island NY Consultant Yes, it's a mini rant....or maybe not so mini.. I DO know it's only a few percentage of Real Estate Agents that do this but you may be wasting your OWN time! I've now seen several properties listed on the MLS. After finding out I WAS allowed to attend Open Houses, I've gone to a few. All of them found on the MLS and every one of them need to clarify things. In other words, BE HONEST!! If there's no Open House I have to call my Real (23 comments)
Everything comes into our lives for a reason. Oftentimes, when we are not at our best energetically or otherwise, we won't take a second look at something that is coming our way. We're not up to it, we figure and without much thought, we'll just turn away from it, decline (with thanks) and think nothing more of it. We may be missing the boat here. Instead of saying no, think it through. When opportunities come knocking, it is wise to be there to answer the (12 comments)
Feng Shui in New York: Let's Talk about the FORM School by NYC Feng Shui Consultants - 11/09/09 07:59 PM
Feng Shui in New York...Let's Talk about The FORM School! By NYC Feng Shui Long Island & NY Consultants There are so many methods of Feng Shui used not only in New York City and Long Island NY but around the World. It's our theory that the more schools of thought of Feng Shui we are familiar with as Feng Shui Consultants, the more we can help our clients. One of the earliest methods of Feng Shui was called The Form School. It was originally used for placement of ancestors in their final resting places. The Chinese believed that the direction (22 comments)
Hoarders of Long Island New York -- Can you use some FREE Help? - 11/08/09 08:53 PM
Hoarders of Long Island New York...Can you use some FREE Help? Hoarding is becoming a more serious problem on Long Island NY. There are many people who have such a difficult time letting go of objects that they begin to clutter their home. These items are usually saved because they "may be needed at another time" or a person or persons feels some kind of connection to them. There is a certain amount of ‘safety' in keeping things around. Unfortunately, it is an issue that often becomes out of control. Their items begin to take over their lives. There is often (31 comments)
The Ups and Downs of Buying a Long Island NY Home...This isn't easy for NYC Feng Shui Consultants! - 11/07/09 06:49 PM
The Ups and Downs of Buying a Long Island NY Home.....This isn't for NYC Feng Shui Consultants! After being on the fence so long about whether or not to purchase a different home on Long Island NY, it was a huge relief in itself to have made the decision to go ahead with it. I'm thrilled and now I actually can't wait! THIS is why my buyer's are calling for some Feng Shui to help get their home sold. I'm probably feeling every emotion a homeowner who has been looking to buy (and sell) has felt at one time or another. (17 comments)

It's RESTAURANT WEEK on Long Island New York! by Feng Shui Long Island Consultant Finally, Restaurant Week has come to Long Island NY. I love Restaurant week here as it allows me to go back to some of my Favorite Restaurants across Long Island and try some new ones I haven't been to yet!
