Today, Sunday, my sons are to finish their homework before they go back to school tomorrow.  Both mentioned on Wednesday (which was a half day due to the holiday) that they had everything they needed.  No surprise here my oldest son mentioned he forgot something in his locker.. this happens frequ...
Here we all are getting wrapped up in the holidays.  I'm hoping we all had a great Thanksgiving.. and are now looking forward to Christmas (or whatever holiday and the way you celebrate).  I think we all have the right to celebrate the way we choose, and shouldn't be shuffled into one "holiday". ...
CROMWELL FIRE DEPARTMENT 82 COURT STREET CROMWELL, CT The Cromwell Fire Department is selling Christmas Trees and Wreaths on 82 Court Street.  When I stopped by today, they had quite a few to choose from.  They will be selling these trees and wreaths today, Friday, November 28th through Sunday, N...
HOLIDAY ON MAIN STREET Friday, November 28th from 1:00 to 8:30pm THREE TREE LIGHTINGS!  With Thanksgiving behind us, and most of us are just relaxing from all the food we ate, this might be a good time to see what activities are going on in the community... to wear off all that turkey.  Please jo...
Vicki Mendyka NEW ACTIVERAIN MEMBER Liberty Mutual Insurance Company Farmington, CT Last week you might remember I posted a blog about, "Insurance Company, Liberty Mutual Steps Up to The Plate".  I was under the gun.  A client I had couldn't find insurance for her home she was purchasing.  It was...

I try to help out clients and go beyond probably what most will... but how many would do this for their family?  Probably quiet a few.  Today/tonight, I am...
I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU. I've read a lot of blogs where people are looking to see how ActiveRain is working for other members. For the most part everyone said that there is a lot of work in it... blogging, commenting, and responding to comments. Like anything in life, you get what you...
As most of you might recall, earlier this week I posted a blog about looking for home owners insurance for a client of mine that *was* buying a property in Portland Ct.. a cottage.  This property has since closed and was my third lead from ActiveRain and my third closing.  I had many responses, a...
I have been told that gas prices have been coming down... which I have seen too.  Connecticut though as one of the highest state tax on gas, that seeing prices as low as other parts in the country seem very unlikely.. until today. Here in Cromwell, CT at the Mobil Station on the corner of Route 3...
Recently I had a closing.  My clients were wonderful to work with, it just too 6 months to find them a house that they fell in love with.  I took them all over... not that I am complaining.. after all this is our job, right?  The home they finally choose was worth the wait.. it is gorgeous. So he...
