This is a Florida sinkhole home that we are repairing.  The underpins are in the ground in this video.  Our contractor is stabalizing the house by installing metal rods underneath the foundation down to the limestone deep underground.   It is a pretty amazing process to watch as the machines drill down often 30 to 80 feet underground until they hit solid ground.  The house looks much much better now that all the work has been done and the sink hole filled.We buy sinkhole homes.     407-739-5773      www.WeBuySinkhole.com

Chasco Fiesta in New Port Richey Florida Parade March 21, 2015Chasco is based on a fictional love story between a Spanish boy and girl who were captured by the Calusa Indian tribe. Later in their life the boy and girl married each other as Queen Chasco and Pithla. There has been controversy over the way native people are portrayed. I notice that the Native American festival is pushed to the side instead of on center stage as it should be but it shows how we indigenous people still survive despite the setbacks and portrayals.The Chasco Fiesta started in 1922. It had been held continously since 1947 so it is a big deal with the community.The parade was held on Saturday March 21, 2015 in downtown New Port Richey. It started at one p.m. and ended at three p.m. I took so many pictures. Here ...

Great Customer Service From Lowe's   Just over a year ago, I purchased a new washing machine from Lowe's.  It was a water-saver machine without an agitator.  What a mistake that was. It never seemed to have enough water, some of the clothes would come out dry (well, I guess I saved on dryer time). I had no control over the cycles. If I tried to change anything during the cycle, it would drain and start over. We kept going to the store and asking the salesman about it. His answer, "Well, it is low-water".  We finally called and had a tech come out. He said it was set too low (no kidding) and he replaced the electronic panel. Oh, wow, everything went wrong after that. Drain and Spin became fill the washer four times to the brim and drain and spin, then do it again. Rinse didn't work at al...

A Sure Sign Of Spring-A New Batch Of Babies   Every year, our resident Sandhill Crane couple brings their babies around for us to approve and enjoy.   We know it’s the same couple because they bring their babies to our back door for our admiration and approval, and wait for the seeds to come out. This year’s new crop of babies is very cute. They were born about two weeks ago and have already grown so much bigger.   Sandhills mate for life, they have one or two babies. Sadly the babies don’t always make it especially if Spring turns back to something cold and nasty. Of course, every year, I hope for the best for these little ones.     Enjoy this Florida moment!   Toni Weidman Broker-associate Re/Max Sunset Realty   727-237-0083

Happy Red Orchid Saturday   This is my Mother's Day Orchid. No, Mother's Day hasn't slipped past you yet. This was a Mother's Day Orchid from back about 3 years ago. The color is so intense and there are always a bunch of blossoms; and they last for the longest time.   I really do enjoy all orchids but this one is so pretty and special. So I hope this makes you happy just to look at her.    Happy Red Orchid Saturday!
