Prices are down an average of 15% in Connecticut, and more so in other states. Do you see the opportunity here? It's time to get on the phones and call al...

As a child, growing up in rural Plattekill, NY, I would listen to the top 100 hits of the year on radio, writing this information down, as if it had huge significance. This was always a fun end of the year activity. Today, in Hamden, Connecticut, I create my own Top 100 list in December, as part ...
