When I say, "Botanic Garden in Delaware," you may be thinking something on a duPont estate in the northern part of the state.  Well, downstaters decided to do something to remedy this assumption.  In early 2012, a group of energetic and garden-loving men and women came together under the leadership of Michael Zajic, former horticultural supervisor of Brookside Gardens in Maryland, to fill an unmet local need for horticulture education and gardening resources. I had a chance last week to visit the new Delaware Botanic Garden in Dagsboro, Delaware,  in only its 2nd year open to the public.  We chanced to meet the Director of Horticulture, Stephen Pryce Lea, who told us that the Sussex County Land Trust's site on Pepper Creek, preserved as open space, has been leased to the Delaware Botani...

     It looks like California will soon be voting to extend California's COVID eviction moratoriums before they expire at the end of the month.  This is despite the fact that many have now been vaccinated and the economy has opened back up.     According to the California Apartment Association (CAA), "It’s been 15 months since COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders first came down. By now, all tenants who’ve suffered a financial hardship should be able to document it in some way. Otherwise, they should not qualify for eviction protections."     The CAA further states, "Rental owners also need compensation for rent lost to unit abandonment. The pandemic led many residents to turn in their keys and walk away from their obligations. Landlords have not been able to walk away from their own."     ...

Owning a Home Has Distinct Financial Benefits Over Renting  Some Highlights When you rent, you build your landlord’s wealth, your monthly payment depends on ever-rising rents, and you don’t benefit from home price appreciation. On the other hand, when you own your home, you build your own wealth, your monthly payment is locked in, and you benefit directly from home price appreciation. If you’re feeling the challenges of a competitive market, remember that homeownership is a long-term game. Persevering today will lead to financial rewards in the future.

Ah, the great outdoors. Don’t you just love the soft wind rustling through your hair and the rejuvenation of a warm, summer breeze? I know it’s fun to go camping at your favorite spot or hiking your favorite trails, but you really don’t need to travel anywhere to experience the freeing calm of nature. Instead, the great outdoors can happen right in your own backyard.Here are a few ideas for creating an at-home oasis that’s as cozy as it is chic: Bring your indoor furniture outside. Yep, you read that right. Your outside space should be an extension of your home, so why shouldn’t you bring the inside out? Furniture that works well outdoors should definitely be considered, everything from wicker chairs to eclectic pillows and furniture upholstered in darker shades to avoid mud or grass st...

Learn how to determine your current net worth and how an investment in real estate can help improve your bottom line. Among its many impacts, COVID-19 has had a pronounced effect on the housing market. Low home inventory and high buyer demand have driven home prices to an all-time high.1 In the Tampa Bay MSA area the average sale price of a single family home increased 26.2% from April 2020 to April 2021.  This has given an unexpected financial boost to many homeowners during a challenging time. However, for some renters, rising home prices are making dreams of homeownership feel further out of reach. If you’re a homeowner, it’s important for you to understand how your home’s value contributes to your overall net worth. If you’re a renter, now is the time for you to figure out how homeo...

With the global pandemic slowly receding and warm weather descending all across the nation, Americans are resuming activity in droves—and that’s a good thing. But it’s easy to forget how important it is to stay hydrated in summer’s heat. Whether you’re out in the sunshine hiking and biking or back to working out at the gym, medical professionals offer tips for preventing dehydration. Know the Signs – Dehydration can take many forms, from dry, itchy skin to muscle cramps, headaches, fatigue or dizziness. Other signs are infrequent urination or having dark yellow urine. If you experience these symptoms, get out of the heat and drink plenty of liquids. Over-the-counter options like Pedialyte can help balance out the electrolytes and sodium associated with dehydration. Drink Enough Water – ...

The Federal Open Market Committee of the Federal Reserve said in its post-meeting statement that the Federal Reserve expects to raise its benchmark interest rate range twice during 2023. No rate changes will be made during 2022 as the economy continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. The Fed’s current interest rate range is 0.00 to 0.25 percent.Fed Expects “Transitory” InflationThe Fed’s post-meeting FOMC statement said that although Committee members adjusted their forecast for raising the Fed’s benchmark interest rate range, members did not predict long-term inflation and described current upward inflation as “transitory.”The Consumer Price Index reported that the cost of living jumped in May and drove inflationary growth to a 13-year high of five percent.11 of 18 FOMC members ...
