For the last couple of weeks I have been hearing about a mower that mows your lawn for you.  Hhhmmmm....this I could get used to!  At first I thought...how lazy can someone be?  But technically if you are not mowing the lawn you can be:  making money, spending time with family, at the beach - well you get the drift.  I came across this Automower and what an amazing little gadget this is.  It will mow your lawn for you from start to finish with just a few easy set up steps.   It comes in different sizes, it is weatherproof and no emissions.  Looks like another gadget that will be changing things in the future!

How many times have you forgotten to leave a key for a child, relative or someone doing work on your home?  Now you can open your front door (or any door you choose) right from your IPAD or Smartphone.  With wireless keypad deadbolts you can also assign up to 19 different access codes so you can keep track of who is coming and going.  Many of the new Smartphones will support the Schlage Link App.  To test your phone text "phone" to 695465 (MYLINK) on your cell phone to find out if it is compatible.  The application is dashboard centric and provides users with an overal snapshot of the devices being used in their home from a central location. Imagine how powerful this could be in an emergency situation such as an ambulance arriving or letting in a neighbor to check on someone etc...What ...

It is now over 100 degrees on the car temperature read out today.  For the past week or so the heat has been unbearable and my mind keeps straying to pools.  Here is a video of all kinds of different pools that are just gorgeous.  Enjoy and may it make you feel a little cooler! Enjoy this video of the World's LARGEST pool located in Chile.  Not too many pools have boaters!

I am often told that I am a pretty positive person; often happy, smiling and energetic.  I am so grateful every time I hear that because I know that it is exactly the kind of person I intend to be every day!  Research has shown that people with a more positive disposition are usually more optimistic, tend to be healthier (perhaps even live longer), are more energetic and often achieve more because of their mindset.  With all of that to offer who wouldn't want to work at being more positive day in and day out!  Being positive is a choice and I have come up with a list of ways you too can be more positive! TIPS FOR A POSITIVE OUTLOOK 1. Stay Positive. You can listen to the cynics and doubters and believe that success is impossible or you can know that with faith and an optimistic attitude...

  April 2011  Market Update Gradual and uneven progress in the housing market continues without government support. The market has shown remarkable improvement from the initial drop after the expiration of the home buyer tax credit this past July. Although higher-than-normal distressed sales skew the overall picture of home prices downward, inventory remains at pretax credit expiration levels. The rock-bottom interest rates of 2010 are likely to trend upward. As economists anticipate rates at or above 6% by the end of 2012, buyers are moving off the sidelines and into the market.  Recent reports suggest the economy is picking up steam even though it is not yet fully reflected in the job market. In terms of economic growth, America outpaces all the other G7 nations except Canada.  Howev...

Here are more pictures from the day we went to the Bronx Zoo in the freezing cold!  Luckily when we went through the reptile house it was before the cobra went missing that was all over the news for 3 weeks or so last month.  I hope to be able to return there at some point this summer.  I will get the rest of the pictures up before the end of the month as well.  Tweet

  February 2011  Market Update Gradual improvement in the housing market continues at a steady pace without government support.  Six months after two consecutive years of tax incentives for buyers; starting in July 2008 with a $7,500 repayable first-time buyer tax credit, extending to a $8,000 nonrepayable first-time buyer tax credit in January 2009, and ending in June 2010 with the expanded credit to repeat buyers; the market has shown remarkable improvement from the initial drop this past July.  With mortgage rates remaining near historic lows and home prices having generally stabilized, economists are expecting further strength in 2011. Consumers are showing some signs that they're feeling better: a significant boost in the food and services industry implies they are eating out more...
