Mine, his, or a new one.  So we weighed the pros:mine: closer to his work, no maintenance requiredhis: bigger, nice deck and lawn and woods and garage for building boats, smal...

I spent an hour or so this morning rowing around on a custom built Adirondack Guide boat (warning - shameless plug!!!!  One of my husband's passions is making boats). We brought the boat to Round Lake in Monroe, NY.  The new factoid I learned about Monroe this week was that Round Lake is a beauti...
Yes, our trip to Belize included time swimming with sharks.... Belize is a must-go place for scuba diving and snorkeling.  The salty Caribbean sea provides great buoyancy and makes snorkeling an easy sport (once you get used to having your face underwater).  Belize's reef system is the second lar...
Our recent Belizian trip included a trip to the Xunantunich Mayan ruins.  We had a long and interesting journey to get to the site of the ruins. In this post, I'll share the actual site, as well as the thoughts of our full-blooded Mayan tour guide on the 2012 end of the world rumors. Once we reac...
During our Belize trip, we participated in a rainforest trek.

I recently moved to the beautiful town of Monroe, NY in Orange County.  I have been here an entire week, and I thought it would be fun to share my impressions. So far, I've learned that: 1) The Department of Motor Vehicles can provide a vastly different experience in different locations!!  I had ...

After pointing out the termite nest, our guide, Bernard, a full-blooded Mayan man (more on this in a subsequent post), asked if anyone wanted to volunteer to eat a termite. Dead silence. "Oh, come on, they're tasty.  Anyone?" No one volunteered - including me.  So he appeared to pluck a termite o...
As mentioned in my blog post last month, (One Month to Name Change and Counting!), Kathleen Moriarty (that's me) has been replaced by Kat Palmiotti (that's me too!).  I'm still the dedicated, interested real estate agent I've been, but have just changed the name I answer to. ...
