Last week I told you about the upcoming Melbourne Air & Space Show. We went on Sunday and had a great time!The 1st display was from a man named Kent Pietsch who does aerobatic routines. His plane is called the Jelly Belly and is specially equip-ted for the type of flying he does. This clip is of a World War II bomber and the F-35 Striker of today. They flew side by side at the show. The F-35 flew very slow as the WWII bomber had the pedal to the metal to keep up!I highly recommend taking in one of these shows. It was amazing!!!

I always urge home buyers to think long term - not necessarily about the years of mortgage payments but rather about when the time comes to sell.   After all, unless it is a retirement home, most buyers will not be living the rest of their lives in the house. This long term consideration is especially important when a property has some distinguishing quality that may not be appealing to most others. Still, more often, the realities (and challenges) of selling a home do not become clear until well into the process.    Hopefully, the light bulb comes on before the omissions/commissions translate to dollars lost. For those who may one day sell a house the below list should be reviewed before the time comes.   Many of these are the opinion of the writer, only.  Some are common sense. Being...

Today I went to our local board for a class on the Brevard County Property Appraiser website. Little did I know that Dana Blickley, the actual property appraiser, was there. The class was packed with well over 100 people in attendance. At the beginning of the class Dana Blickley did something that I thought was awesome. She asked everyone in the class to stand, face our flag and say the Pledge of Allegiance. I haven't said the Pledge since I can't remember and I was absolutely thunder struck at the request. I loved it! And yes, I did add "Under God" into my pledge. I got totally choked up as I proudly recited the words to the Pledge of Allegiance. I meant every single word of it! With all of the bickering going on in our country right now, I wish people would remember that we are all Am...

I was born in NYC and grew up on Long Island. We had a bunch of great diners growing up...always within a short drive of our home. Diners are truly a part of the fabric of the Northeast!Since first moving to Florida to attend college I have looked for a diner that would remind me of my favorite joints up north. Many carry the word "diner" in the name, but none of the magic. I recently (and with great anticipation) had lunch at the Times Square Diner in Suntree.Now for those of you who did not grow up on diner food, understand that a quality diner tries to mix breakfast, lunch and dinner with family style meals like meatloaf, fish & chips, steaks, fried chicken, etc...Add in some great burgers, NY specialty sandwiches and Greek specialties like Gyro's.I decided to try the Fish & Chips be...

There is lots of new development happening in and near the Melbourne real estate market. Local area market watchers suggest this recent upswing in starting or completing new home developments is related to possible new construction impact fees which have been rumored to increase at the start of the new year to $4,000. Whatever the reason, it is great news for Melbourne real estate advisors who now have many more options for interested home buyers to choose from along with a wider variety of price points. Get specifics on which home developers are expanding and which neighborhood subdivisions are getting ready for a grand opening.

Hemingway's Tavern is a fun watering hole located next to the Premier Oaks Theater in Melbourne. As the name implies, Hemingway's Tavern is a nod to one of Key West's most famous residents Ernest Hemingway. The decor at Hemingway's Tavern is pure Key West through and through, all the way down to the live feed of the Southernmost Point from Key West on the flat screen TV's. The menu is varied and includes everything from burgers to seared Ahi tuna, pulled pork sandwiches, conch fritters, yard bird (chicken), crab cakes and fish prepared a variety of ways. Cocktails include margaritas and various rum drinks.I tried the Key West Bowl at Hemingway's Tavern which was a bowl of rice and (black) beans with pulled pork. There was a tasty chimichurri sauce on top with fried plantains (I asked fo...
