 Uncharacteristic Nighttime Lights in CT This past week has been unusual with weather for many parts of the world. Scientists were warning of strong solar storms that would create issues on our planet, some of which could not be controlled.In the Midwest gps systems that farmers needed for spring planting were affected as the flares that hit us were largely geomagnetic.  There were concerns with communications being disrupted as well as power grids.Something that was seen as a once in a lifetime bonus were the possibilities of nighttime lighting displays not common so far south.There were enough news stories letting people know that lights could be seen at night. It would be necessary to get to a high enough elevation and hopefully get very little interference from residential lighting....

It is a special day anytime we get to honor our mother's and thank them for all they do.  My mother passed away 16 years ago, so I can no longer get to thank her personally for everything she did for me, but I do get to thank my wife tomorrow for everything she has done for our two sons.  This is a day she gets to be treated like the queen she is, and shown how special she is to us. Happy Mother's Day 2024 to all Mother's, and I hope tomorrow is a very special day for every Mother everywhere.

Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT 5We have had some warm weather this past week here in Prospect CT, and more of the colors are showing up to be appreciated.The phlox is fully blooming and starting to spread.  I will need to trim it back a bit.Right behind the rock garden and to hide a rock that was too hard to remove is a pink weigela shrub, which seems to get larger blossoms each year. Up closer to the house are the azaleas which are all strutting their colors to be appreciated.Along the driveway the day lilies are not yet to be appreciated, but at the bottom the bleeding hearts are showing their different shades and colors.As I walk around the yard I do not see many beds where colors are ready to emerge, so I will just need to appreciate the flowers for whatever time they have left.Blo...

Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT  4We are almost completely there with the spring blooms in Prospect.  The daffodils have just about run their course although there are some hanging on.The phlox at the bottom of the yard that we call the rock garden is in bloom with a carpet of pink. The stragglers of daffodils add some tall color and one can see the choke cherry just behind them all starting it's pink covering of flowers.Closer to the house, the white azalea bushes are showing their colors, and the daffodils are just about done here.The pink azaleas are asking for attention and the reds are just chillin' for their burst of color.It is time for the flower beds to receive their mulch coating so all will look nice and fresh for the summer.Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT  4

What Makes Me the 'Who You Gonna' Call Agent'?Making the phone ring in this business takes work and not the type of thing that is taught in the pre-licensing classes.  New agents that get into the fight offices will get mentored and allowed to follow some of the experienced agents to see the reality of work, but this still doesn't guarantee success.Everyone works to their areas of confidence and the expertise they develop.Shortly after getting licensed, I made sure to let all the contacts in my life, know that I had embarked on a new career. Simultaneously, I made sure the people that were familiar with me at church, social clubs and the golf course knew my new job.This gave me exposure and opportunities to get sales and develop the sphere that has come to be so important over the years...

Friday Flags in Cheshire CT 5.03My good fortune with finding opportunities to share flags continues this week with a flag that stands in front of the Cheshire Volunteer Fire dept at its station near the intersection of Waterbury, Wolcott and Cheshire.With a little patience and a silent prayer to the wind gods, I was rewarded with a flurry of wind and a billowing flag.In a time when so much is taken for granted or even as due, recognizing the flag and the freedoms gotten by so many around the world is something we should not take for granted.Friday Flags in Cheshire CT 5.03

Terryville CT Home Under Deposit in 4 DaysIt didn't take long for a line of buyers to want to view the property with the hope of making it theirs. A contract came in after the first showing, but all were told there were multiple showing requests and an open house scheduled and nothing would be decided until all had their opportunity.Seller was to review offers on Tuesday AM, and was presented with 4 possibilities from which to choose.All looked strong, and all were over asking, which speaks to the current home market in CT.Here's hoping that the process flows smoothly and that we close at the end of the month so sellers can relocate in retirement to TN. Terryville CT Home Under Deposit in 4 Days

Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT,  3Early Sunday afternoon of last week, I was driving into Prospect and as I passed the Medical office building, I was taken enough with the view to turn around and appreciate the almost barren lot.In another few weeks, it will not be as impressive a view even though the trees will be all fully loaded with leaves.The landscaping is very well groomed. On this day the parking lot of adorned with blossoms on the trees as well as azaleas in blossom.When loaded with cars and leaves on the trees it may not even get a second glance as people hustle into the building for appointments.The ground will have a white coating for a while and then all the colors will blend, but on this afternoon, I at least was taken with the colors.Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT,  3

It happens all the time - I literally just woke up to it again.  A Press Release from the Department of Justice Tax Division:Maryland Payroll Company Owner Pleads Guilty to Employment Tax Crimes and Embezzling from Employees’ 401(k) PlansSo what happens when a payroll company steals the payroll tax dollars meant for the government?  The employer still owes those payroll tax dollars to the IRS.  The fact that it was stolen by a third party does not relieve the employer of the payroll tax liability.True, we may be able to get penalty abatement due to the bad actor, but the taxes and interest will still be owed to the IRS.This is why I recommend using one of the big national payroll tax companies.  They are all publicly held behemoths that have more than enough resources to correct for any...

Friday Flags in Cheshire CT 4.26I had to take a run to an appointment in Cheshire CT and passed an office structure with a large flagpole out front. I pulled into the parking lot and waited a bit to see if the wind would cooperate, and my pause was rewarded.The wind pushed that flag out and it gave me the opportunity to take the shot I wanted so I could continue my streak for this post.Friday Flags in Cheshire CT 4.26
