     After a hiatus of more than 40 years a group of friends and I are headed back to Baseball's Hall of Fame(HOF) on Feb.28,2013. Baseball has been a life long passion of mine, but I've put off going back to the HOF since my 8th grade summer . I'm sure I won't recognize the town . Driving there can always be tricky this time of year and adds to the epic adventure . My friends are coming from as far away as CA and TX, now those are real baseball fanatics ! We will spend most of March 1rst at the HOF and then all hustle to Langhorne, PA for our  27th annual Computerized Baseball Convention(the ABA, abawebsite.net). I'll do a blog report of our tour upon returning !     Meanwhile if Baseball is a Passion of Yours, please join Active Rain's Baseball Group @        http://activerain.com/gro...

What would we do without our cell phones? I was on the road today- my husband was driving. I had my folder and calendar in my lap and cell phone in hand. We had a 2 1/2 hour trip and I worked all the way. I love my Android. It is the single most important thing for my real estate career. My website www.NewPaltzRealEstate.com is a very busy site, but I have many listings as well with for sale signs and riders that include my name and phone number. Today being a beautiful day and Labor Day many people were out riding around and calling for more information about my listings. Real Estate has become a mobile business. Agents can work from anywhere. Give me my Smartphone and I am in business. What would I do without my cell phone? As we rode along with me texting and answering phne calls and...

Wordless Wednesday  -  On the way to Oneonta NY Last Saturday on the way to Oneonta NY I passed many wonderful scenes.  It is amazing that many still think of NY in terms of New York City, however if you head out of the city you will soon encounter vast open space. So here are a few of the scenes I took from the back seat of a moving car on the way to Oneonta.  Here are a few questions for you. 1 Do you know which county Oneonta is in? 2 What well known music college is located there? 3 Which hall of fame can be found there?

I can't think of barbecued chicken without thinking of Brooks House of Bar-B-Q in Oneonta, New York. I've been going to Brooks since I was a kid everytime we'd go to my grandfather's cabin in Gilbertsville. Over the last 50+ years Brooks has grown from a small catering company, to a barbecue concession stand, to a restaurant, banquet hall and barbecue sauce production company. About a half hour from Cooperstown and National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, the restaurant has a display case with famous baseball players who've eaten there- including my favorite, Derek Jeter. Even Food Network's Rachael Ray included Brooks in her Cooperstown episode of "$40 a Day". They'll cater parties up to 100 miles from Oneonta- so even if you don't live or go to college there, they can bring a taste...

Land- A great investment "They aren't making it anymore"- There are many reasons that investing in land makes sense. Beyond development- there are other purposes for investing in land. When you live in the city or suburban areas, land is a rare commodity, but there are certainly many areas of the country that has beautiful undeveloped areas that can be used for your enjoyment. We own land in the Town of Butternuts New York. Originally purchased as an investment we have come to know that the land can be enjoyed. My husband being a hunter knew from the start what he would use the land for but the rest of us took up Quad riding. We made trails through the meadows and forest. The terrain is mixed with everything from rocky ledges, a stream, dense forest and meadow. The rock walls still exis...

The blueberries in New York State are ripe and ready to pick.   This weekend we took my oldest two granddaughters to our cabin in Otsego County in New York.   While there we picked some delicious blueberries.. and enjoyed the results. While picking we ate our share.   On Sunday we had fresh blueberry pancakes.   Visit New York and stop at one of the many pick your own farms- It is great fun and the benefits are well worth the work!

The summer is a great time to get away and enjoy family fun.  Our family enjoys riding atv's. We have just had a week away with the oldest two granddaughters- and their atv's in Central New York. If you have never visited the Central New York area- It is worth the trip. We have our second home in a small town, Gilbertsville. Gilbertsville is 30 miles west of Cooperstown and  30 miles north of Binghamton. The area is mostly farmland with rolling hills.  We own a cabin and 30 acres of land- where we can ride the atv's on the trails we have made through the woods and meadows. Daniele and Molly are very talented atv riders- Not your typical girlie-girls. They each have had their atv's since they were six. Daniele is now 11 and Molly is 8 (and is helping write this blog- dictating over my s...
