oswego: Dairy Hut - A Standing Summer Tradition in Oswego, IL - 08/10/10 05:22 AM
Childhood memories in the summer always remind me of one of my favorite treats...ice cream!  In my small town the favorite place for a cone is the Dairy Hut on Main Street.  Although their menu has expanded beyond ice cream it has been known since the 50's as the place to get a great ice cream treat.  Originally a trailer it has now has a permanent place on Main Street.  The current owner, Jeff Smkal, has owned it for the last 3 years and has kept the tradition alive.

When I stopped by last month it was obvious why it's a … (2 comments)

oswego: Where toTake a Coffee Break in Oswego, IL - 07/04/10 08:54 AM
Since moving my real estate office to my home I have found that I end up working longer hours.  Without an actual commute to another "physical site", sometimes it's hard to draw the line on when to stop working.  So lately, I have been forcing myself to "take a break".
When you live in a small village/town like I do, if you want to go to a well known coffee spot you will have to drive at least 10 to 30 minutes.  We all develop certain habits and one of mine is a cup of coffee - I usually brew my own … (0 comments)

oswego: Hard Way to Get A Listing - 02/03/10 06:37 AM
Life is always full of surprises but I was not expecting one when I opened the door a couple of weeks ago and there stood 2 of my village's local police.  They were doing a wellness call on my next door neighbor and wanted to know if I had seen her lately.
My heart jumped as I tried to remember when was the last time I had seen her.  I am always leaving and going at odd hours because of my profession.  I would normally talk to her as one of us was either leaving or coming home.  We would always … (5 comments)

oswego: Along the Winding Trail....A Stable Neighborhood in Oswego, IL - 09/14/09 06:58 AM

Late in August I decided to set a goal of 30 bike rides before September 30th.  Well, yesterday I passed my halfway point.  I live in a duplex in the Lakeview subidivision in Oswego, IL.  It's a mix of single family homes with duplexes.  We have some wetlands with ponds and some great biking trails that run through the subdivisions and along some country roads. 
The journey of getting to my 30 rides has been interesting.  I have been going to a health club of one sort or another for over 25 years so am not someone new to staying … (2 comments)
