Gated vs Non Gated Communities in Delray Beach FL People are often confused when they come to Delray Beach FL, or one of the neighboring cities, about where to buy a home.  They've seen commercials on TV, their friends have told them about this or that community, but they're really not sure.  It can definitely be overwhelming, especially if you're not familiar with the area. Some people prefer a house on the street.  That's easy enough, if you know the area you want to live in,  and we have them here.  No homeowner's associations to worry about.  No rules to follow, except those set by the city or county and no monthly fees.    Other people prefer gated communities, which are definitely a way of life in south Florida.  However, there are several types of gated communities; there are unm...

Dogs and Allergies in South Florida Dogs are much like people when it comes to allergies living in south Florida.  They get allergies too!  South Florida is a hotbed for allergies, although I acquired mine in New York.  So there goes that theory, if you ask me! Nevertheless, some dogs can and do get allergies.  If you are new to Boca Raton, watch out for Allergies in Dogs.   I've had dogs with food allergies as well as seasonal allergies.   We have lots of flowering plants and melaluca here and, while beautiful to look at, your furry friend could be allergic.   I try to take precautions.  Each time I take my dogs out, their paws are wiped when they come in.   I try to keep them away from freshly mowed grass, anything freshly sprayed for weeds or whatever, or lots of leaves on the ground...

Help Hurricane Victims With Your Own Hurricane Supplies This is an idea that someone in our community is doing and I wanted to pass it on.  If you have seen the videos of the flooding in Houston thanks to Harvey or the devastation that Irma inflicted on the Florida Keys, west coast, and Jacksonville areas, you know that there are many who need urgent assistance.  Having just gone through Irma myself, I know that I have a stockpile of supplies that are sitting waiting for the next (hope not) hurricane to hit.  What about taking those supplies and donating them to agencies who are collecting them for hurricane relief? If you can, use your office for a drop off point. We just left our water supply on the front porch of the family collecting in our neighborhood. You could use your office! H...
