History of the Cape Cod - 07/27/08 07:53 PM
With the current Real Estate market in North Jersey providing a great opportunity for buyers and especially first time buyers, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at a style of home that is prevalent here, one that is popular with first time buyers. Here's a look at the history of the Cape Cod Style Home. The first Cape Cod style homes were built by English colonists who came to America in the late 17th century. They modeled their homes after the half-timbered houses of England, but adapted the style to the stormy New England weather. (2 comments)

The Boss is Back! - 07/24/08 01:09 PM
It must be Summer Time in North Jersey! New Jersey's favorite son is back! Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are back again for a three show run at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. This marks the first time Springsteen has played the area since he appeared last fall at the Izod Center Arena at the Meadowlands. The first show is Sunday - July 28th at 7:30pm. Tickets are $65 and $95. But good luck finding them at those prices. The shows were sold out within hours of going on sale. So if you have a friend who (2 comments)

Softball Time in Little Falls - 07/12/08 12:41 PM
The 8th annual Jacque Corradino Memorial Softball Tournament is taking place this weekend (7/11 - 7/13 -14 year olds) and next (7/18 - 7/20 -12 year olds). I started this tournament back in 2001 when my daughter was playing and I was the commissioner of Little Falls Softball. Jacque was the first commissioner of the softball program in Little Falls and we lost her during my first year, way too young, to cancer. I ran the tournament for 3 years and then started umpiring when my daughter moved on to high school. My good friend Lisa Smith took the reins and not only continued (2 comments)

My First Flip - The finish line! - 07/06/08 09:37 PM
It's finally here - we're finished! 3 1/2 months later and a lot of time and effort invested, my partner Rich and I have completed our first renovation project - the Clifton NJ house. We had our first Open House today and had a great turnout. About 20 groups (yes groups) of people came through. Not bad for not having advertised, just directional signs and some flyer's hand delivered to neighbors. While many of the visitors were neighbors, the turnout was fantastic and we were very pleased. So without further delay, I present our finished project.
