PATCHOGUE, NEW YORK - "VILLAGE OF ARTISTS"   Those of you who've known me more than a year know that I've been promising to join the video bandwagon forever. With absolutely no skills to speak of, the learning curve turned out to be steeper than I anticipated. Because I was extremely motivated to...
  WYNWOOD ART DISTRICT OF MIAMI At fellow ActiveRainer Pam Hill's suggestion, I visited the Wynwood Art District on my recent trip to Miami. We arrived on a Sunday, not realizing all the art galleries and other storefronts would be closed. (Are there blue laws in Miami??) No matter, I saw exactly...
REVERSE MORTGAGES AND CIRCUMSTANCES THAT MAKE IT A GOOD FIT Through a 3rd party, I learned that a homeowner was trying to sell but was unable, at this time, to sell it for the amount she needed to make in order to move on. She is presently considering a reverse mortgage. The first question I woul...

That's just not reasonable. So ...
AND TO THINK ALL THIS TIME I'VE BEEN SUBSISTING ON POMEGRANATE      Yesterday, I wrote a post entitled AAH! The Old Neighborhood.  Later in the afternoon, I returned to the computer and was thrilled to discover it had been featured. I've been here on ActiveRain for 15 months now and this is my 2n...
AAH! THE OLD NEIGHBORHOOD! Many years ago, my husband and I bought a unit in a Homeowner's Association. We lived there for a total of 9 years. We were happy there for a total of 3, after which, we couldn't wait to get out. It was brand new and being built in 3 stages. We were the 2nd family to mo...
TOWN OF BROOKHAVEN HAS A NEW JOBS WEBSITE Job-haven.org (http://www.jobhaven.org/) was unveiled recently in Suffolk County's largest town to post Long Island employment opportunities and to help town residents find out about those available jobs in one easy-to-access site. The healthcare, technol...
LIBRARY MEMBERS CAN DOWNLOAD E-BOOKS E-book use is growing in Long Island's local libraries.               While it hasn't yet become my reading method of choice, the idea is beginning to grow on me. With an E-book, there are so many wonderful functions. With one touch of an icon... You can chang...
