 I want to highlight a new subdivision which is for seniors who are proactive planners. They plan that this will be their last home. They want to "age in place". This community is the Village of Aversboro in Garner NC.  I think this is a lovely community and I think you will too. It is a young community and still being built out. It has a great location: walking distance from grocery, shops, pharmacy, and restaurants. Yes location is key! But there are many more highlights to this community.    Some of the features:   Dental crown molding on cabinets Custom details Screened in porches Tile floors Tile back splash Granite counter tops Under cabinet lighting Built in bookcases Custom wood shelving in closets Aging in place features   At least one zero step entry Lever handles on the door...

This is a continuation on our post yesterday about how exciting it is to live around the new American Idol ~ Scotty McCreery!     But what I didn’t mention yesterday is that we have house guests.  Lee’s brother and family visiting us along with their 12 year old granddaughter from New Orleans!  Well let me tell you -  the excitement began Thursday night when they arrived and I found out she’s a HUGE Scotty fan!  So what’s any Grandma and (surrogate) Aunt to do?  Well go and let a 12 year old fan explore, visit and learn more about her American Idol of course!  We had lots of laughs yesterday doing just that.  It was fun learning more about uhm...  Scotty Stalking (as we lovingly called our afternoon) and exploring all around Garner NC.   We wanted to find signs folks put up for him, whe...

Raleigh Area Scrap Metal Recycling - TT & E Iron & Metal - WOW!A few weeks ago, I went to TT&E Iron & Metal - my first experience at a scrap metal recycling facility.  TT&E is a family owned business established in 1975,  located just outside Raleigh NC and is quite the operation!  They buy all sorts of scrap metal; process and then ship it all to refining companies.  SCARY dinosaur guarding the place - so be careful! MOUNTAINS OF METAL JUNK!   Everyone should go and visit a place like TT&E to get a close up sense of how much "scrap metal" we all produce! Please recycle!  take all the metal to TT&E and walk away with CASH for your trash!
