Setbacks in attempt to elevate storm-damaged home A human interest story, printed in the November 29th edition of Newsday, caught my eye because certain government regulations have made life very difficult for a Long Island family.

SELLING WITH SENIORS   "This amount represents a lifetime's worth of savings," is a sentiment you may often hear expressed by a senior interested in purchasing his final home and, it really is his biggest financial investment at that stage of life. No doubt about it, it's a long, slow process. Un...
The New Black Friday Starts on Thursday   In years past, Black Friday meant middle of the night wakes-ups, long johns to survive those freezing temps and travel mugs of coffee or hot cocoa for the younger set.

On Saturday night, December 14th, 2013, relive the 70's at Ohav Shalom in M...
Bulldog or Chihuahua?- Can you tell these two apart?   Today marks the long-awaited resolution of a complicated real estate transaction, which began, interestingly enough, right here on ActiveRain. The homeowners found me from my blog. The wife told me she, frequently, scoured the Internet for in...
The Professional Home Shopper - video   When I was younger and still in school, sometimes I would hear the term, "professional student" thrown about. While this isn't always meant to sound uncomplimentary, the term mainly refers to someone who keeps accumulating degrees with no apparent end in si...
