Florida Family Fun Fest 2013 Sunday, August 11th.... a sunny day in Florida NY for the 5K and 10K races Every year a 5K and 10K race keeps locals fit and trim while raising money and providing a scholarship for one lucky high school senior. Runners come from all over the country. This year my daughter joined the local runners. Her trek was from Santa Cruz, California to the east coast for this run. This was her first 5K on the east coast. Most notably this race was much more hilly than her hometown by the beach. Most of the runners were from the local area, but there were a few from other parts of the USA and one came all the way from Germany to be a part of Florida NY history. The race was the 6th Annual "Run" Fest in Florida NY. The runners were lucky as the day that the weather was p...

Alpine Air Heating and Air Conditioning Florida NY   This past week officially began our summer in the Hudson Valley.  We had the hottest weather we have had yet.  Of course on the hottest day our air conditioning failed to work and all night we could hardly sleep because it was so hot.  Our poor pets were limp as dishrags.  First thing the next morning we called Alpine Air because they were the company that had installed our system several years ago.  We were able to reach someone right away and they scheduled us for the following day (oh no!!) because they were already booked due to such unexpected heat.  It felt like forever because it was so hot but even so I felt lucky to get in so quickly with the heat so intense. Within two hours I had a call back and they had a cancellation!  I ...

As Christmas is tomorrow I can't help but feel a little melancholy.  My Mom died in February of this year and it will be the first without her.  I am in no way trying to present myself as the best son in the world, but we seemed to have 'reconeccted' since she lived with us the last three years. I can't help but think about all that she did.  I would like to say 'well that's what you're supposed to do as a parent,' but my mother really went the extr mile.  My father was stabbed to death in 1972 on the Washington Heights bridge, my Mom raised me all by herself, I did have a sister, but she was 19 years my elder, she never really lived with me while growing up, because she was estranged for a while. My Mom worked at Isabella Nursing Home, she was a nurses aide; she was up at 4:40 AM EVERY...

SO at the end of July I went and saw the movie Larry Crowne, the movie wasn't great but what caught my eyes were the scooters!  I WANT ONE!  I got my motorcycle license back in 2004, sine then I have had two motorcycles for just about a year in total and probably less than 500 miles total. I have been thinking about getting a scooter because quite frankly, they look cool.  I really wanted a Vespa, because I listened to friends and reading up on the Internet I decided to get a Suzuki Burgman 400, it looks like a motorcycle, but it's actually a scooter!  I've been riding on and off for about a month and it's been a lot of fun.  There' s a sense of freedom on the scooter, there's no shifting, just a lot of fun.  I joined up with this group, The Backroads Scooter Club (www.brsc.com), sort o...

Well, my mother passed at 12:10 today, she went in her sleep and was comfortable.  I knew she was going to go today, I went out to walk my little doggy and I just couldn't stop crying.  I had already said my goodbyes to my mother two weeks ago and I was waiting for the inevitable.  As I said I just couldn't stop crying, this was around 8:19 PM.  Suddenly I just felt calm and everything was fine, but I also felt like I was just wandering around.  She's gone now and she's comfortable, she's with my Dad, her mother and father, brother's and sisters, etc. The last time this happened was when I was around 12 or 13, my mother sent me to Trinidad every summer to keep me out of trouble!  There was one day in particular that I really wanted my mother and I was crying and crying that I wanted my ...

Well, my 81 year old mother was taken to the hospital on Sunday night.  I received a call and found out that she had several seizures and she was in critical condition, it isn't looking good.  I am terrible at hospitals, I just feel uncomfortable and I just don't like being there.  THe last several times she was at the hospital for a brief stay I didn't even go.  Am I a bad person?  I love my mother to death--who doesn't love their mother!  This is something I never expressed to her, we just were not the touchy feely type of family that did say those things, it was just understood.  My father was stabbed crossing the Washington bridge when I was three, I never knew him so I never felt like I missed him.  My mother was everything to me, she left our house in The Bronx at 5:00 PM everyday...

Well, we're finally getting all the snow which was "promised" since Monday.  The city closed all the schools since yesterday.  When I was going thru the NYC public school system--they NEVER closed school.  The only day I do vaguely remember was when there was a huge snowstorm in 1977 or 1978, we had school, but were let out early, and I think the next day schools were closed.  Evidently it is rare, I saw something on the news this is the 3 rd time in the last ten years they have closed schools, that's in direct contrast to Bergen County New Jersey, when schools would be closed if there was slight icing on the road.  It's different in the suburbs since everyone isn't as close to the schools as in NYC, everyone is bussed or the teachers have to travel a bit to get to the school.  Up where...

As a Real Estate professional I am always amazed that I still have to justify my services and why I should be paid for such services.  A friend of mine always said "I don't know who made the Real Estate laws, but it sure wasn't a Realtor!"  I have to agree with her. In the process of buying a home, who does all the work?  THE REALTOR.  Joe Consumer calls me, or send me an email or smoke signal, or whatever way he gets in touch with me.  He tells me I am looking for a home in "x," I search high and low, preview, set up a tour of similar properties, find out all I can about "x," and then after all this Joe Consumer enters into a contract, and eventually ends up buying a home.  Along ,the way, the mortgage guy may have been paid for the application fee, the home inspector has been paid, th...
