The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 was just signed by President Bush with some amazing benefits for first time homebuyers.  Call everyone you know who wants to buy their first home (or who hasnt owned one in three years), this is too good to miss - its a $7,500 tax CREDIT (not deduction but a credit). If you have not owned a home in three years, you are a first time home buyer.  If you buy a home after April 9, 2008 and before July 1, 2009, you qualify for a credit.  Call your friends who just bought a home since April 9th and tell them they may take $7,500 off their tax bill if they qualify.  It has to be your principal residence, so rentals do not count. The tax credit is 10% of the cost of the home, up to a maximum of $7,500.  So, if the home costs $100,000, you would get ...

There is a plaque at the base of the Queens Museum that is dedicated to the memories of Detectives Joseph J. Lynch and Ferdinand A. Socha of the New York City Police Department's Bomb and Forgery Squad. They were both killed in the line of duty while examining a time bomb taken from the British Pavilion of the World's Fair in Flushing Meadow Park at approximately 4:45 P.M. on July 4th 1940. This turtle run is dedicated to their memory and their families. Here is some eye candy from my run. Please keep these families in your prayers. They are in mine.

I love being a Work-At-Home-Mom (WHAM) and previously blogged upon that subject. What I didn't know, and could not have possibly imagined, was the fact that my WAHM blog would capture so many people's attention. Turns out it had a very nice following on my outside blogs, which directly resulted in my receiving an informal invitation to venture on-site to record the installation of the new Citi Field sign. It was installed early this morning on the stadium under construction adjacent to Shea. Both sites are in a state of transition, just like some of my close friends. The construction crews, NYPD and NYC Parks Department workers were exceptionally kind to this writer and very  generous with their time while granting me temporary access to the site. I was given the same courtesy they give...

  This series of residential tours is inspired by my girlfriends Elizabeth Weintraub (of Sacramento) and Poppy Dinsey (of London, UK). The Weintraub Gallery features her favorite Land Park Homes in Sacramento (About.com), while Poppy D (Zoomf) takes us on an eclectic tour of her neck of the woods in "A Walk Around London England." In "A Cactus Flower Blooms For Only One Day" Elizabeth makes some interesting analogies regarding missing your moment if you wait too long to purchase the home of your dreams (while providing a little cactus eye candy). In "Are You As Green As You Can Be?" her talking points include what people can do to help reduce our carbon footprints and be eco-friendly. She poses an interesting question at the end: "What do you do to be green?" You should also check out S...

I love tennis but unfortunately I don't play very well (unless we're talking video games), which is why I do love to watch the sport and appreciate the precision, strategies and athletics involved in the activity. In anticipation of the upcoming events scheduled for August, I decided that today's turtle run would be around the tennis stadiums in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The US Tennis Association (USTA) hosts the US Open at the Arthur Ashe Stadium and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center every August in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The planes are re-routed not to fly over at that time, which is something that only a native New Yorker would notice. The absence of noise is always invigorating during a zen moment while enjoying a slow jog. If you stand at the gates of the ...

I'm addicted to my turtle runs in the morning. I can't imagine my day without having a slow jog with my Nikon. There are so many beautiful sites to see in my neck of the woods known as Queens County. Truth is, each borough has something special to offer. They all have a soul and flavor that is very unique. We are talking eye candy, people. Did I mention I am a visual person? I think I did, but I'll say it again, in case I did not. Being an artist has its perks when you  live in New York City, and one of the biggest benefits of being a native New Yorker is you know where to go to get your visual fix if need be. So today I am going to share one of my favorite places to be and let you see how much eye candy the Court of Sates in Flushing Meadow Corona Park can be. Enjoy!

I love getting my kids on the school bus, then taking my bloggers butt over to Meadow Lake to do my turtle run in the morning. According to the NYC Parks Department: "This 84-acre manmade body of sparkling, fresh water is New York City's largest lake. A popular spot for boating, fishing, crew, and sailing, the water keeps splashing while scores of other recreational activities fill the surrounding athletic fields, bike paths, a model plane facility, and picnic areas." Well, I can tell you they certainly summed it up rather nicely. I love jogging in this place! My kids, family and friends spend a lot of their play time here. It's minutes from Jamaica, Kew Gardens, Briarwood, Whitestone and Forest Hills. The Grand Central Parkway runs parallel on one side while the Whitestone Expressway f...

I must admit, when it comes to growing flowers I don't exactly have a green thumb! Perhaps some of you feel the same way. Maybe you don't have the time, energy, or resoursces to create a blue ribbon prize winning flower garden. However, with just a few minutes a day for about a week you can transform the front of your home (or backyard). A client of mine recently decided (after a chat we had on adding curb appeal to her property) that she needed to do something... anything! She went online looking for quick blooming flowers and her search resulted in: Roll-n-Grow. We went from having 2 showings to 5 showings per week on her property and we are currently Under Contract. Most of the buyers that would stand outside her home were hesitant about looking at it before because it wasn't "inviti...

What's great about this flick is that it doesn't pretend to be a moralizing melodrama about abstinence and teen sex. After experimenting with sex with her best friend, (who she is in love with and he is in love with her, but neither of them wants to admit it first), Juno winds up with a bun in the oven. Juno is a smart-mouth character, a teenager who finds out she's pregnant, and plays her like a real person, flawed and confused on the inside but in no way ready to drop her defenses. Her father, when faced with the news of his eldest's indiscretion, doesn't fly off the handle or even raise his voice. Instead, he reacts with calm and genuine concern. It's not that he isn't angry, he is, but he's also smart enough to understand that's not going to get him anywhere. Instead, he steps up an...
