I was raised in a home where volunteering was part of the thread of our lives. Whether it was the child whose bicycle broke down in front of our house and who was then invited to the porch for some koolaid icecubes on a hot summer day while my Dad fixed their bike, or riding along with Mom and Da...
As the Executor of her neighbor’s will and estate, my sister was researching details for the funeral. If you’ve never had to do so, you’d be amazed by all the decisions to be made along the way, even if there’s a will. Engrossed in her search, she wasn’t fully aware of the virtual fingerprints sh...
Tis the weekend for Separation Day  in Old New Castle, Delaware!   June 15th commemorates the day that the Assembly of the Lower Counties of Pennsylvania, the three counties that now comprise our fair state, declared their independence back in 1776 from England and King George III. They also part...
I always recommend that my Buyer clients change the locks on the houses that they purchase after they own the home. You never know who had a copy of the key to the house, so if you want to have some increased peace of mind, change the lock.Then I heard about bump keys and now I’m not so sure abou...
The storm last night was fierce, much shorter than earlier predictions led us to believe, but still... fierce. I had finished a long day of work and joined one of my daughters for sushi at a favorite local restaurant. I watched the rain pummelling the ground, lashing and whipping about like a gna...
I've been working late hours this week. Crazy pace. Two night I've been out till about midnight, assisting my clients. And then in the midst of it, this was posted on my Facebook page, totally out of the blue, unsolicited: So, Ethan and I are buying our first house, yay! And I just have to take a...
Driving into a small shopping center today, a couple was walking towards my car from the right. Where they were isn’t a place with a stop sign and most pedestrians let the cars go first. I didn’t realize till I got to that exact spot that the man didn’t intend to stop, though he still wasn’t in t...
You might say… but you’re a female. It’s true, though. It was an inclusion when I moved into this world. Mom and Dad both donated a defective X chromosome and voila! I’m red-green color blind. I learned today that my type has a more specific name than that. I could have been born a Protan, or eve...
Working late into the evening last night, as I’ve frequently been doing, I had left my client’s house and was headed back down the interstate. In the darkness, I saw a shadow. You know how you can see the fuzzy image of your eyelashes or your hair… not when you’re looking in the mirror, but right...
A most wonderful and funny thing happened this past week: A bear wandered into Delaware. If you’re from a large state, and heck, since almost every state is markedly larger than dear little Delaware, the sighting of one lone bear (maybe two, the reports have left some of us wondering) wouldn’t ev...
