For anyone who has had to use a Hospice Service you know how wonderful (or not so wonderful) they can be.   This past week I spent many long hours in a Hospice Center that I have to let people know about.  For those who don't know what Hospice is, it is a specialized care for the terminally ill in their final hours or days.   My father in law was diagnosed with liver cancer last year and actually over the past year did very well considering what a terrible disease that is.   Last week we went to visit my inlaws because it was my mother in law's birthday and had a nice visit although we could see my father in law Michael was starting to deteriorate.  He was weak, didn't want to eat and wasn't talking much.  I suggested to my mother in law that maybe it was time for a nurse.  The followin...

    A great, fairly new addition to the downtown Stroudsburg area is Venuto's Old World Pizzeria. The feature great thin crust pizza in a variety of styles and they are named after some great Italian artists. The pizza and calzones are a work of art themselves. I had a made to order calzone that was so huge I couldn't believe my eyes! My wife had a pizza topped with buffalo mozzarella and basil and it was delicious. It is roomy inside and a very nice staff serves you. I highly recommend you take the entire family out to downtown Stroudsburg and enjoy something far from just ordinary pizza.

MTV is filming a performance Thursday night at our very own Sherman Theatre, located on Main Street in Stroudsburg. The performance is from hip-hop emcee, Asher Roth.  The doors open at 7pm, and the show starts a 8. There have already been 800 tickets sold!!! The theater's executive director, Rich Berkowitz, collaborated with East Stroudsburg University to produce this big-ticket show.  A promotions class at the college is in charge of putting on the show, and Mr. Berkowitz allowed them to use the venue to show the class what it takes to put on a real-life concert. Because the show is a mile or two off campus, there will be bus service from the Dansbury Commons area of the school to the theater starting at 6 p.m.

  Our daughter Emily will be 13 years old on Tuesday so we had a Birthday party for her last night with some family & friends...I wanted a special cake for her special birthday so I searched the internet for specialty cakes (like the ones I see on TV)... I found Merry's Cakes and was happy to find that they were close by and actually made nice looking cakes... We ordered the cake from Merry's Custom Cakes in Stroudsburg and it was beautiful & delicious... I have never had a cake from there before but let me tell you I will order from Merry's cakes again & again!!! I had no idea that this shop even existed but everyone at the party now knows where to find them because the cake was great!! The shop is built into the front of their home & tucked away off of Shafer's Schoolhouse Road, she h...

                                          I love Pizza & when I was a kid living in Philly we had Santucci's Pizza across the street and they had some of the best pizza I had ever tasted!! I miss being able to run over & pick up a Philly Cheesesteak that would leak out of the bag by the time I got back home... (but that is whole other story)  We just got back from eating at Venuto's Old World Pizza on Main Street in Stroudsburg, Pa.... This place has been open for the last few months but we have never had time to run in & see what they had to offer...well I have waited TOO LONG!! Great Pizza with many choices & just the way they made it years ago..I guess that would make sence since the name is Old World Pizza!! They have Signature Pies named The Michelango, Giotte, Leonardo, Bellini, R...

Everyone is meeting people, blogging & talking about Real Estate all the time but are we doing it in the way that would bring us more business or is it costing us business???              SO....Who is The Bad News Realtor??          Well hopefully, not you!!  They are the Realtors that all they do is talk about how the market stinks, nothing is moving, prices are falling, nobody is buying, it is the slow time of year, negative, negative, negative.... They go negative on their blogs, websites, emails, listing appointments & will tell who ever will listen to them...  (but who really wants to listen to that).... Who wants to work with a depressed, negative Bad News Realtor?? My husband has been on multiple listing appointments where the previous Realtors have been so negative & down at the...

       Currently, there are 197 homes for sale in Stroudsburg on the Pocono Mountains Multiple Listing Service at the time of this post. Because Stroudsburg has a downtown part as well as some rural areas, you have a larger concentration of homes that are not in a development. Many times, a person looks for a home that is not in a development because the do not want to deal with community rules and regulations or does not want to pay the dues associated with a HOA (Home Owners Association). There are some nice subdivisions in Stroudsburg such as Arbor Woods and Cranberry Heights that offer a closeness of a community without amenities or dues. The downtown area of Main Street is always bustling with stores and restaurants that feature everything from home decorations to modern staples li...
