I made a discovery last night as we gathered for the annual Christmas eve party at my daughter-in-law's parents house.  Much of the evening played like a movie I've seen before, and loved, with one major exception.  My sweet little four year old Dylan entertained the group with an a capella perf...

When you boil it all down, there is nothing more important than the relationships we create.  At the epicenter of my world are some of the most special fellas, large and small, who unfortunately for me, live thousands of miles away.  At this time of the year, if the planets align just right, I g...

Sometimes when I look at a photo I get a sense of that person's whole life, as if the landscape spreads out before me and I feel their emotions and get an overall sense of whether they had or will have a good life, or a more difficult one.  When rummaging through my old photos, searching for the...

Bellmore is located on the south shore of Long Island, about 27 miles east of Manhattan and 10 miles east of the county line, separating Queens, a borough of New York City, from Nassau County. A 43 scheduled minute ride on the Long Island Railroad will take you into Penn Station in midtown Manha...

Once they see it, so many people choose Merrick Woods as their destination for a home purchase.  There are so many benefits to living in "The Woods."  On Long Island's south shore of Nassau County, it's a 41 minute ride on the LIRR into midtown. For much of Merrick Woods, you're within easy walk...

On a stormy day on Long Island's south shore, mother nature said, it's not over yet, as the last rose of summer stood strong and tall despite freezing temperatures, strong winds and rain.  There is beauty in the lone shock of color, barren tree limbs, tempest tossed waters and gray skies.  And t...

The 12th of December conjures up many things in the northeast.  On the literal cusp of winter in the middle of Nassau County on Long Island, you expect cold weather as we've had for days, you expect wind and rain, or even snow, but the last thing you expect to see this time of year is a blooming...

I've always done a fair share of relocation work, enjoying much of the process as I help familiarize buyers with our towns on Long Island and the many amenities available to them.  One of my favorite families turned out to be a young couple with two small children.  I was able to find them a beau...

Whether or not Christopher Columbus discovered America may be up for speculation, but that I was feeling a lot like an adventurer myself today as I set sail and discovered the town dump, was not.  It's not that I was unaware of it's existence, or that I didn't know the exact location of this depo...

It is with profound sadness that I sit here, having said goodbye to my sweet Lacey, at 3:56 this afternoon.  Anybody who read my holiday miracles post knows the story about my girl, who came to me when she was no more than a little puff of cottony down at 8 weeks old.  I find it hard to believe t...
