Abandoned Homes Are Everywhere






 





Even the best neighborhoods have them. They're not always boarded up. But no one lives in them. They're tied up in probate, simply ignored by the owner, or a relative can't bear to part with it. If there's an abandoned home in your 'hood, here's some advice from useful-community-development.org.
 
You can also call me to investigate.

Is It a Bungalow or a Ranch?


Bungalows squarish, usually built in a single story with an upper room under a gently pitched roof. Ranch homes, also known as ramblers, tend to cover more space with a rectangular, single story floor plan.

Pictured is a classic Bungalow home. Here's a showcase of home styles. What's your home's style?

What Would You Name Your Home?


Bill Gates calls his home Xanadu 2.0, after a fictional mansion of the protagonist in Citizen Kane, a film about how possessions were unable to make a tycoon happy. Perhaps an ironic reminder to himself? Give it a try...what would you call your house?
 
 

May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends. Being able to work with you has been a true pleasure, and I can only hope our relationship continues for many years to come. May your blessings be plentiful, both this Thanksgiving and in the coming year. This year, I have almost too many blessings to count including having my second grandson on the way.

Maureen.
 
 

That's Not the Speed Limit!


A highway patrol officer clocked a slow moving car at 22 mph (35 kph). Worried the driver might be in trouble, the officer pulled the car over. The driver was an old man, and in the back seat sat two older ladies, both hugging each other and shaking with fright.

“What’s wrong, officer?” asked the driver. “I’m sure I was driving the speed limit. I saw it on the sign back there.”
The officer paused, then realized what must have happened. “Sir, that wasn’t the speed limit; that was the route number. You’re on Route 22.”

“Oh,” the man said with with an embarrassed nod. “Sorry about that.”

The officer looked at the shaking women in the back. “Are they OK?”

“Those are my sisters,” said the driver. “I’m sure they’ll be fine, now that we’re off Route 180.”
