Aren’t we lucky to have electricity! It makes life so much easier.When I hear about power outages that last for days, weeks….long periods of time, I cannot image how difficult simple everyday activities become without electricity for so long.My understanding of how electricity works is minimal. I know to respect its power, it makes life easy, but it also has the power to kill.That is why when buying a house, it is good to have an inspector check the electrical components in the house you are considering buying. Read the Seller Disclosure to find out about a house’s electricity status.If it is an older house, is there still knob and tube wiring?Where is the electric panel?Learn how to turn the power back on if a circuit blows.What do you do?Learn what to do.Here are some things related t...

Sometimes I read articles by real estate gurus advising potential Sellers to paint their front door a particular color. The author of the article insists that some colors are better than others and are sure to bring in a buyer quickly and at a high price.I can understand giving such advice, because the front door can set a tone for what might be inside.Beyond the color, if the door appears to be neglected in any way; peeling paint, hard to unlock door, hard to turn the door knob once unlocked, then the door sticks, so it needs to be pushed….you get the idea...this can set a tone unconsciously in the minds of a buyer. They may think, well gosh if the front door is really neglected, what else is neglected inside the house?So yes the color may play a factor, but it is the care of the front...

We are lucky here in Delaware County to have deciduous trees, trees that change color in autumn.There is nothing like being witness to trees’ magical display that never fails to impress.Because there are still many trees scattered in and around Delco, on roads and streets, on peoples’ properties, on business properties, we get the opportunity to see the blazing reds, yellows, oranges against the backdrops of green and the powder blue sky.The changing colors of leaves can beckon you to go outdoors, to enjoy the last string of warm days before the leaves fall from the trees and the colder days begin to take hold.The autumn leaves do their thing when autumn mingles with the season of winter.365 Things To Do In Delaware County PA

Basements are located under the main floor of a house and can offer additional space to a house.  Such as space for storage, for a laundry room, a furnace area with a hot water heater, or for the central a/c unit.  Some basements have an outside entrance as well as stairs to the main floor. Some may be finished, others may have dirt floors, with low ceilings, making them not really suitable as a living space.Bedrooms and bathrooms can also be located in a basement.  There are even some old houses in Delaware County, that have functioning toilets out in the open, near the laundry area, with no doors for privacy.But not all houses have basements.  I did not know that, when I was young.  I grew up in an old, three story, row home with a full basement.  All of my friends’ houses had basemen...

Things About Houses – AntsHave you ever had a steady flow of ants in your house?In the kitchen?Yikes….It happens every few years or so in our kitchen.During warm weather they are visibly around outside, with their occasional swarms on the sidewalk.What is that about anyway?….is that a war about something?….is the queen ant in town?….living quarters need to change?And their dirt mounds in the crevasses in the sidewalk, almost like they are cleaning out the unneeded dirt vacated for creating more living spaces below.Finding the sweet nuggets helps to cut off their reason for entering the house.Their scouts sure do a good job of finding those few drops of honey behind the jar on the counter.Ants are important to our ecosystem.As long as they stay outdoors, I let them be.

Where are the Cicadas?Where are the Katydids? It’s mid August here in southeastern Pennsylvania and not a peep from a daytime cicada, nor the harmonies from the nighttime katydids.We just had a 10 day heatwave, that didn’t even pull them out.They are the lovers of hot weather.They are the chorus to help us through.They are the sound, the music of the dog days of summer.Where are they?I miss them.
