Stuck between a rock and a hard place? Let a real estate agent find you a soft place to land.

JJ appears to be stuck between a rock and a hard place!

I got a call yesterday from a man who is temporarily living with his in-laws.   He didn’t seem particularly happy about this turn of events and likened it to being stuck between a rock and a hard place.   If you are looking for a soft place to land and aren’t sure if you can buy…

Hershey’s Mill, Chester County

Fog over the lake at Hershey's Mill in Chester County, PA

I deliver meals on wheels every Thursday.  It’s the best part of the week for me.  As Chairperson of the Goshen-Towne Chapter of Meals on Wheels, I am also responsible for drivers and one of my drivers needed a substitute for today.  I gladly volunteered to take her route as it’s the same one I drive and it  takes…

Thinking outside the box.

I love to cook for my family.  Growing up in an Italian home, both my mother and father were excellent cooks.  Italians learn to cook from watching and recipes are loosely followed, at least that’s how I learned to cook.  Throw a little of this, a little of that, and somehow, it always turns into…
