Don’t Get Left Out in the Cold - Are You Ready for the Spring Real Estate Market?

 


It is true that this has been one of the harshest, not to mention longest, winters in recent history.  As we remain buried under snow, it is almost implausibly inconceivable that spring will be landing at our doorsteps in just 13 short days.  While none of us expect to be seeing the spring blooms, or bunnies ...

Believe: A Holiday Wish


As many of you who know me, already know, “believe” is a word that I use often.  In fact, as the ever-optimistic person I am, it is has become a state of being.  In my view, the word “believe” is at the root of all faith and its powers are beyond all comprehension.

A Weekend of Wonderment!

 


 

Despite the damp winds, I braved the GNE this past weekend with my dear friend, and had a most wonderful time!

Preparing Yourself For The Big Chill Ahead




As I crawled into bed last night, joined by my duvet-stealing Great Dane (Duke) and my somewhat more polite Chocolate Lab (Cadbury), I was horrified to discover, while fighting valiantly for a share of the bed clothes, just how cold my house was becoming.  While it is true, being the diehard that I am, that I still have my windows open, and whil ...

Size Does Matter!





Those of us with horses know just how much we have invested in keeping them healthy over the years.  In this moment, that old adage about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure springs to mind.  In the case of horse husbandry, a cliché such as this couldn’t be any closer to the truth.  I am always in awe of these magnificent and majestic creatures; they e ...
