When my son told me he was working at Westgate Las Vegas Resort, he told me it was the hotel where Elvis performed.  So naturally, I googled it.  What else do you do?  And sure enough, it is where Elvis performed except, at that time, it was called the International Hotel.  There is even a life-size statue of Elvis in the lobby.                                        But what caught my eye is that Barry Manilow was performing there.   And I love Barry Manilow!  I grew up listening to his music.  Barry is from New York, and I'm from New York.  He's from Brooklyn;  I'm from Queens.  Same difference.Barry Manilow was big in the summer of '78.  Really big!  He was a superstar!  His music was everywhere. "Can't Smile Without You" played on my answering machine.   Even my father loved it.  He...

Over the past two days, I have been in Florida, specifically between Delray Beach and West Palm Beach, to initiate a Feng Shui analysis. The site has an intriguing history as a family owned and operated hotel (est. in 1925) that is currently functioning as a hostel. During the analysis, we observed which part of the current building's facade would be preserved and integrated into the newly designed hotel. Inventory of the hotel’s 1925 original furnishings was also taken into consideration, which will be incorporated into the new hotel once it is constructed. Here are a few photos of the current interior of the hotel.     One of the photos showcases an antique mirror that is an original piece and we hope to repurpose it in the new design. In Feng Shui we are very mindful of mirrors, howe...

"There is no such thing as too much truth"Bob WoodwardRenowned journalist Bob Woodward once proclaimed, "There’s no such thing as too much truth."  His quote invites us to reconsider our relationship with truth.Our continuing search for truth, takes us on a path that is not always straightforward.  We are currently living in a world that is inundated with misinformation and propaganda.  We keep hearing about fake news.  Who are we to trust?  Journalists should bear a solemn responsibility to uphold the highest standards of journalistic ethics and integrity.  It once was that way.  Now, we are constantly dealing with an onslaught of misinformation.  Truth is not a mere concept; it is the cornerstone upon which our understanding of the world is built.  Without truth, society turns into ch...

  Valencia Real Estate Market Update for November 2023 shows closed sales in each of the Valencia communities in Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and Lake Worth, Florida.  It also shows how many homes are active and under contract.  Read what went on in each Valencia in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Lake Worth in November.We had a busy summer.  Then all of a sudden came the beginning of October and everything virtually stopped. I believe several factors were involved which caused buyers to stop in their tracks.We now have more inventory than we've seen in a long time.  There has been a lot of talk about insurance and homes needing new roofs.  It's true.  This has been happening in Florida the past few years.  So if a home has a new roof or is in the process of getting a new roof - it takes...
