Once you've achieved a standard of excellence, don't let it rest -- push yourself even higher." Dave Anderson   Do you push yourself each day or at least every other?  Do you settle for what exists in your life or do you set goals and set a plan to achieve them?

Yes, it was the House that Rocks in Narragansett RI yesterday while doing pop bys to see clients yesterday, when one of their neighbors asked me if I'd come down to his home down the street.  Okay, so I'll be good and stop by and what a surprise...a little tilted perhaps was the house or I'll say small cottage.  See rock pilings, stantions or modified jury rigging use to be the order of the day in building cottages here. Now this is Narragansett RI with palatial homes as well as lean to cottages but it's also a beautiful ocean front community that has the best beaches in the North East.  Most of the ocean side homes were moved by the water or wiped out by the 1938 hurricane.  Re-built homes have appeared since that time and speckle the Narragansett RI landscape here.  As this is a flat ...

It is an actual island this Great Island hidden community with Narragansett RI 02882 which is a stone's throw from the scenic fishing port of Point Judith and Galilee, Rhode Island.  Going down the Galilee Escape Road (aptly named for a getaway adventure especially if you are catching the Block Island boat from here), you must turn right and go over a small bridge that brings you into the entrance to Great Island. Surrounded by water with rolling small hills in this hidden community, the houses range from shoreline cottages to Mcmansions along the myriad of roads that define this Great Island.  Many families have had their land and homes passed on to others in the family while others have bought houses in the same neighborhood and eventually renovated them.  What was formerly a basic co...

It all began today with over 3700 runners, walkers and wheel chair entrants competing on the 10 mile course to kick off the 39th annual Blessing of the Fleet in Narragansett, RI on July 23-24th.  This event began as a ceremony aeons ago to ask for divine protection for the fisherman who everyday risk their lives fishing out of the port of Galilee, RI and it has become a huge fund raising event that benefits the community as a whole. The 10 mile road race on Friday kicked off the weekend event. In addition, the Seafood Festival attended by almost 30,000 people each year is a major part of the weekend event. This Seafood Festival, which runs Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night, features a wide variety of culinary delights from the sea (and quite a few from the shore as well).  Live ...

It's the 28th Narragansett RI Art Festival this weekend June 26 & 27 at Veterans Park in bay side Narragansett RI 02882.  This is a 'true' art festival with no craft vendors allowed.  With over 85 artists participating, the weekend's weather looks great and is complemented by the Quonset Air Show in the skies over head.  It is not an event to be missed. The hours of the Art Festival are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Located right at the famous Narragansett Pier in Narragansett, RI this was the happening place for the well to do even prior to Newport RI becoming the in place to have a mansion built.  I'm not that old but I've lived in Narragansett RI in past years and appreciate the great surroundings whether it's the real estate, ocean, beach or great food it's the place to go especi...

                                       In waterfront Narragansett, RI in the zip code of 02882 homeowners say "Not on My House You Don't" place the orange sticker of notoriety on student rental homes.  It is the unfortunate distinction to have one of these stickers marked on your home due to a nuisance issue that has occurred at the property.  See certain areas of this great seaside Narragansett community have a huge population of college renters primarily from the University of Rhode Island - the 'down the line' population of college kids.  Nothing wrong with that since they supply good income to the house owners - when they behave.  The Narragansett police are allowed to place a 10 by 14 inch orange sticker on the front door (thereby branding it) of houses that are accused of being a ...
