It's The Time For Frost On The PumpkinWe gained an hour but it also brought something else with it.  We are into the morning frost time of year.Looking out at the trees and grass and there is definitely a tint of white to the tips. It is frost on the pumpkin time, but our pumpkin is gone but the dwarf maple in the front yard thinks it has to carry the saying.For the first day in DST, this is a hard sign of a tough winter to come.It's The Time For Frost On The Pumpkin

Time to Move the Clocks Back for Daylight Saving TimeIt's that time of year again when we move the clock backwards to save extra daylight, also known as Daylight Savings Time. It generates a lot of controversy and not all countries keep the change.The first reference to the time saver was credited to Benjamin Franklin in a publication he wrote in 1784.“Every morning, as soon as the Sun rises, let all the bells in every church be set ringing: and if that is not sufficient, let cannon be fired in every street to wake the sluggards effectually… . Oblige a man to rise at four in the morning, and it is probable that he will go willingly to bed at eight in the evening.”It was, however many years later that the Germans first set the time standard as a way of saving fuel during World War 1. The...

Closed Waterbury CT 3 Bedroom Raised Ranch in Zip 06705The sellers of this raised ranch were elated to be able to get it under contract quickly at a price that afforded them a tidy profit. They have relocated to Florida and bought their new home for cash.The sellers were referred to me by a former golf partner that was well familiar with my personality and dedication to my business.  We met and hit it off well and within a few days of them completing the tasks I had suggested we hit the market.  Their house was the highest selling raised ranch in their neighborhood which made all feel happy.The buyers came to an open house the first weekend on market and though they liked the house, were not sure they could afford to buy it.  I asked them to have their agent call me and we discussed the...

The Colors Of Fall Are Here in Prospect CTProspect CT is a small town in New Haven County with lots of tree lined roads. They can be a distraction this time of year for the colors of the leaves on the hardwood trees so prevalent in our area.As I was driving near the watershed area of Connecticut Water Co,  I stopped to take a few photos of the trees that lined a small pond.Going a bit further up the road I came to Merriman Pond which is located in a park behind the Prospect Town Hall.  The trees here were also strutting their colors as well.And adjacent to the town are some tennis courts and the trees there were also in full foliage blossom.Money magazine once ranked Prospect CT as one of the best small towns in America. As a long time resident I can agree with that 101%.As a real estat...

The Colors Of Fall Are Coming 2While walking a few fairways this morning, I was distracted by the colors of some of the trees.  The shades are starting to emerge, and the colors are especially striking.The photo above was shot last week, but there are a lot of other trees trying to catch up now.  Over the next week there will be a much larger change and then there will be nothing but piles on the ground and bare trees.The colors are beautiful but short lived.The Colors Of Fall Are Coming 2
