 Canton Soul food restaurant in Stark County Ohio When I get a craving for real soul food, like fried chicken wings, Catfish, barbeque ribs, mac and cheese, and collard greens. I  head to Sophia's restaurant in the old Crystal Park neighborhood, at 1243 Harrisburg Rd NE in Canton OH.       When I was placing my order, I saw a bible on the counter for patrons to read while waiting for their order.  This closely relates to their Christian beliefs and heritage.  The restaurant is their ministry.  Sophia and her husband Claude own the six table restaurant.      The prices are reasonable, the portions are large and the food is delicious. Everything is made from scratch.  I ordered the four piece whiting dinner with collard greens and mac and cheese for $9.50  Yumo!   Homemade desserts includ...

I apologize for the quality of this photo, but I was taking it on the run! I chased the balloons for about 2 miles to capture this one! Canton, Ohio holds a Balloon Fest every year and I just happen to be riding down Fulton Road as they were ascending from the Kent State Stark Campus grounds. The wind was carrying them very fast and I almost wasn't able to get this! Canton, Ohio has many family friendly events throughout the year and the Football Hall of Fame will be celebrating soon their annual inductees into the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio !!

As with any new appliance purchase, consumers are concerned with energy efficiency when they choose a model.  When looking at clothes dryers, choose one that has automatic sensors that shut the dryer off when the clothes are dry.   Electric versus Gas Dryers   Generally speaking, gas dryers cost about half as much to operate than electric dryers.  Your local appliance store should have information about the operating costs for both gas and electric on the model you are considering.   Outdoor Venting   By law, all dryers must be vented to the outdoors; not the basement, attic or craw space.  The combination of heat and moisture can produce mold which is harmful to your health.  It can cause damage to the walls and ceilings in your home.  If you have a gas dryer there is also a carbon mon...

            Owning a home in Stark County can Cost less than Renting!  (Draft) (edit/delete) Owning a home in Stark County  can cost less than renting!  Renting can have some advantages over owning your own home. Here are some reasons that make sense to rent until some things in your life change. If you move frequently.  it might not make since to buy a home.  If you're not ready to commit to the responsibilities or costs  of maintaining a home. If your future income is uncertain, or your present income is not enough.    Don't assume that renting is less expensive than owning your own home.    A monthly mortgage payment is often lower than the rent on a much smaller property.   Owning your own home is like having a savings account that you can live in. Every month the payment you make o...

Celebrate Earth Day April 22, 2009 Save the Earth, yes, you!  Let's give back to the planet just as we take from it. I don't know, I'm getting sentimental, but I have started to recycle. Gotta start somewhere.  Here are some ideas we can all try, to celebrate Earth Day, by conserving energy, money and the earth.    LIGHTING Take advantage of natural daylight. Don't turn on lights  when you don't need to. Use compact fluorescent light bulbs or LED lighting. They may cost more, but they save as much as 80% on your electric bill and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. APPLIANCES Use water and energy saving features on your dishwasher. Only run full loads. Wash clothes in cold water to save heat and only run full loads.  Using your bath towel more than once, will save energy...

  Kimono as art, the landscapes of Itchiku Kubota Several of us from my office at Cutler Real Estate went downtown to the Canton Museum of Art to see the internationally acclaimed  work of artist Itchiku Kubota, who used silk kimono as his canvas. The exhibition of 40 oversized kimono depicting the changing seasons was incredible.  After seeing the exhibit in Japan, Ambassador W.R. Timken and Jack Timken of the Timken company worked three years to bring the exhibit to Canton.  Can you imagine. Not Cleveland, or New York, but Canton Ohio.  The Kimono was painstakingly made by hand. Similar to tie dye and embroidery, but kicked up to notched unknown. I can't even describe the beauty of it.
