mason county: Is your garden ready for spring? Tips to help! - 03/31/11 12:28 PM
What you do in your vegetable garden right now can have a huge influence on how well it does next year. This is the time to get your soil in shape. Start by doing a good clean-up. What crops in your garden have finished production? Get those broccoli stumps and bolted lettuce onto the compost pile. You can work around the tomatoes, squash and beans that are still bearing.

INFO THAT HITS US WHERE WE LIVE...We should be especially careful to not erect barriers to our progress just because of a minor setback, like the one we had with last week's Pending Home Sales. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) index of signed contracts on existing homes slipped in January for the second month in a row. But the drop wasn't as bad as expected and, as the NAR's chief economist said: "We should not expect the recovery to be in a straight upward path--it will zig-zag at times."The latest NAR overall forecast gave an interesting picture of that recovery. … (0 comments)

Putting your house on the market? Before the "For Sale" sign goes up, give your property the ultimate spring cleaning.

Prior to your first open house, review each room for grime and clutter, including the garage, basement or attic, as there are multiple steps to a polished look.  And beware the too corny maneuver: apples baking in the oven are definitely out; the aromas of essentials oils, … (1 comments)

Winter months bring frosty temperatures, gusty winds and slippery sleet and snow, sending people indoors to seek warmth and shelter.  The chill in the air may also send a few uninvited pest guests into your home, too. Most homeowners don't think about winter pests until they see signs of an infestation, at which point treatment becomes more difficult. The best way to keep pests out of your home in the cooler months is to take preventative action before you have a problem.

mason county: Home Ownership is the best investment! - 01/23/11 11:18 AM
Home ownership is perhaps the surest way to accumulate net worth that there is, and it is often the largest and most important part of the total portfolio of many middle-income Americans.
