Technology Can be OverusedThe advent of the Internet has offered conveniences that would have been impossible to imagine 30-40 years ago. Everything we do today utilizes the advances and conveniences made possible by technology.  Young people get a jump on phone use and can be obsessed with its use to the extent that they might be standing next to each other and inter-texting.  It's as if they don't know how to speak.I just had the occasion to get exposed to its overuse.One of my clients had inspection issues that needed the use of a plumber.  The seller accepted the issues and said they would get it repaired before closing.

Closed Waterbury CT 3 Bedroom Raised Ranch in Zip 06705The sellers of this raised ranch were elated to be able to get it under contract quickly at a price that afforded them a tidy profit. They have relocated to Florida and bought their new home for cash.The sellers were referred to me by a former golf partner that was well familiar with my personality and dedication to my business.  We met and hit it off well and within a few days of them completing the tasks I had suggested we hit the market.  Their house was the highest selling raised ranch in their neighborhood which made all feel happy.The buyers came to an open house the first weekend on market and though they liked the house, were not sure they could afford to buy it.  I asked them to have their agent call me and we discussed the...

The Colors Of Fall Are Coming 2While walking a few fairways this morning, I was distracted by the colors of some of the trees.  The shades are starting to emerge, and the colors are especially striking.The photo above was shot last week, but there are a lot of other trees trying to catch up now.  Over the next week there will be a much larger change and then there will be nothing but piles on the ground and bare trees.The colors are beautiful but short lived.The Colors Of Fall Are Coming 2

This past Thursday, thanks to my good friend  Ed Silva, I had the pleasure to MeetUp with the one and only Carol Williams .  I doubt there is any ActiveRain member, who is regularly on ActiveRaian, that does not know Carol.  Carol is also one of the regular Weekly ActiveRain ZOOM Meeting attendees, and contributor.When Carol made it know she was going to be within a short distance of CT while on her cross country road trip, Ed reached out to her about meeting up with her.  Carol not only agreed, but she even changed her plans, and drove to CT.  Ed than reached out to a few of us who regularly attended the past MeetUps in CT, many of which were hosted by Dagny Eason. Ed than arranged for us to MeetUp at a small Middle Eastern Restaurant called Kibberia.  This was the first time those in ...

Throw Back Thursday  When The Rains Were Too Much It Was 66 Years ago today when the results of 3 days of rain caused by Hurricane Diane left the tate with never to be forgotten memories.  There were no flood control dams in place, and the valley created by the normally  mild Naugatuck River became a deadly and violent tsunami destroying all in it's path.The Naugatuck River cuts south from the Mass state line and ultimately flows into Long Island Sound after merging with  the Housatonic River.  From where I grew up in Waterbury's South End, I could walk to the end of the street and see the tops of the factory buildings that lined the banks of the river.The vew I got was considerably different than the  photo below offers.When the waters inally receded, 47 people had been killed, some ne...
