After being in business for more than 50 years, Nelson-Vrooman GMAC is no more.  Prudential Rand bought them out as of today.  So officially I am now with Prudential Rand. Nelson-Vrooman was a wonderful brokerage and I am sad to see it go. It was started by Mary Nelson.  Bill Vrooman took over th...
It was the night before my famous "tax extension experience." I was running late trying to get all my deduction ducks lined up in a row and was planning on a long night. But I needed to run a couple of errands. There was no food in the house - at least not for people and my car was running on gas...
In my previous post, I had been commenting on how spring had been taking its sweet time in Westchester, NY – but what a difference a few days can make.  We had a couple of nice warm days in what has generally been a rather cool spring – and this encouraged the buds to bloom. Here are some picture...

Here is a lovely top floor unit  in  a desirable pet-friendly complex in Yonkers, NY.  Just a short 6 minute walk to the Fleetwood Station on metro-north.  It is a 1 BR/1BA unit with an ample 850 Sq. ft. of living space.  It is close to transportation, highways and shopping. A Starbucks is schedu...

I called my accountant on Monday – who was expecting that I would file for an extension. I realized su...
Here is the next installment on my series of animal (pet) humor. Once again, I do not know who was responsible for this list so I will just present it and add one more breed of dog to the list..the Siberian Husky. Since I have two of them, I feel it is an appropriate addition. For those who have ...
Buyers from  New York City are forever asking me if there is any nightlife in Westchester? And the answer is YES THERE IS!Downtown White Plains is bustling 24/7 these days and for those who enjoy the active night life of New York City, having such a hub near at hand makes the adjustment to more s...
The picture of that hawk was taken by yours truly one morning. I had just let out the dogs into my back yard (yes its fenced) while I started making my essential morning brew when I noticed that Buddy barking at something and looking UP....I peered out the kitchen window into the back and looked ...
It was a beautiful sunny day on Wednesday, and I was able to get away early - so I decided to take Jade and Tundra to the Rockefeller Preserve in Sleepy Hollow, NY. The Preserve is well known as an "important bird area" and for its working farm. Tundra, being brought home towards the end of July ...
