We spent the evening yesterday at the West Lampeter Fair, just south of Lancaster City and near Strasburg, PA.  The fair was packed and the weather was great - although the night before was quite rainy I heard. Our boys had a great time watching the tractor pulls (yup, it's a country thing), pett...
With foreclosures on the rise nationally, Lancaster County was bound to be hit with increases in defaults as well.  Foreclosure listings have indeed increased over last year, 22% based on MLS data.  The trend, though, is not clear as the number dropped a few percentage points in 2006 over the yea...
For those who are auto enthusiasts, the annual Neffsville Car Show is a can't-miss event held every September at the Manheim Township Community Park. Hundreds of cars and trucks from every era crowd the large park, with the owners on hand to discuss their beauties and the work that went in to the...
The coming electric rate cap removal on electric usage in Pennsylvania has been in the back of everyone's mind in utility & government entities for a while now.  The general public, however, has been living in relative ignorance of the impending changes and many insiders expect that it will take ...
On Saturday, September 29, 2007, Manheim Township will be hosting a Fall Open House at their Compost Park from 9:00 A.M. until 12:00 P.M. Composting is a great activity which I'm a big proponent of.  In my backyard compost, I've managed to dump all of my grass clippings for two years - gone!  Lea...
The big Day in East Petersburg is over - for this year.  And what a day it was!  Here's a few photos from yours truly of the events of the day:                                                           Thanks to everyone who made East Petersburg Day a big success!  I'll post some more photos this...
While out in North central Lancaster County this afternoon, I couldn't help but stop and compose a few shots.  The weather was perfect, and the light was bright but not overbearing.  We're going into the best season to photograph the northeast - fall!  Here are a few of the shots I put together. ...
Thought I'd post a short clip of Carys "singing" back to Susan this morning:(and no, she doesn't have her daddy wrapped around her finger... um hmm). She's doing wonderfully and has already finding her voice!  It's like starting all over again after the 4 1/2 year gap between kids.  Wouldn't trad...
Are you in the market for a Lancaster PA luxury home, a home with every amenity you could want? Are you pretty discriminating in your location, and would only want to buy in the historic area of Manheim Township? Close to everything but not out "in left field"? Are you looking for a home from a ...
Today I showed a pair of city homes to an investor client.  He & I have been in some pretty bad places together.  We're both pretty good at looking beyond various damages to see the potential in a home.  Today, however, the two homes we looked at were just not worth redeeming.It bugged me.  I rea...
