Rivers Bend is a Pet-Friendly Condo Community located in the Torresdale section of Northeast Philadelphia.  I love watching the dogs proudly walk their owners, the owners curb their dogs, in other words, they do clean up after their pets.  Sometimes I would like to stop and take pictures but really not sure of the reaction. Most of the time I am also caught up in traffic and not able to stop to do so. Rivers Bend Condo units are two-story twins. Each unit has two levels they both have a 2 BR and 2 Bath garage, laundry, and driveway with a shared yard. an A unit is on the first floor which has a lower level and may have a half bath -The B unit is on the second floor, has a loft that may have a half bath, and is a more contemporary style. There are however variations to both styles. There...

Most houses have a visible chimney.Those that do not, will have some sort of pipe sticking out of the roof or a wall on the side of the house. Chimneys stand higher than most roofs and are very necessary even if a house does not have a fireplace.Chimneys serve a major function in the health of a house.  They are the exit route, to the outside, for the noxious by products from a working furnace or water heater. This keeps the interior of a house free from the potentially deadly emissions given off of the fuel your heating system uses - natural gas, oil, coal, wood - they all give off a byproduct when burned to warm your home.If a house has a fireplace in addition to a furnace, there could be two chimneys. One for the fireplace and one for the furnace. But sometimes one chimney can serve ...

Many people view our role as a Realtor simply as a door opener. How wrong they are. As I read Buzz Mackintosh post this morning Down to the Wire  I realized it is often Realtors who are the ones speaking up and letting people know when and where their property rights are being infringed. Please take a moment to read his post, it is excellent.It is Realtors who speak up to get Flood insurance protection plans passed in congress. It is Realtors who speak up and stand against municipalties who try to block sales of properties with onerous requirements that are costly to home owners through Use and Occupancy inspections and block the issuance over small items from being issued.It is Realtors who proposed sensible systems for sidewalks and lateral sewer inspections, rather than having these ...

Moving is hard! First you have to find a home, then you have to sell a home often, and then the packing, moving and unpacking, finding a new home for all the stuff you don't really need.Stressful, indeed. But if you have furry friends, it is also stressful for them. They do not understand all the packing and moving thing at all. Then they are suddenly in a new home, smells are different, and all their favourite walks are gone. Jackie and I discovered Goddard Park nearby, we have been told there are plenty of parks and trails to explore in Nottingham, and White Clay Preserve is nearby, with a creek, Jackie's favourite thing to do, stand in a creek and cool off on a hot day.The photo for this post is of Jackie, exploring the exercise yard at Goddard Park in West Grove where she can be off...

Let's Talk about what is happening in Delaire Landing a Gated  Waterfront Community. It was a wonderful summer this season at the pool. The sun was shining every day and a great time was had by all. The umbrellas were up and the sunscreens were lathered on. Pot Luck was the best any of us remembered the food was amazing. Everyone made such wonderful dishes and homemade desserts. Now that summer is over even with all the swimming that was done I know a serious diet is in the future for me. Delaire Landing residents also had a wonderful time at the Pool party with the Music supplied by our own DJ Mitch from Blue Collar DJ Promotions. This was also a bring-your-own event.  Even the kids had their own parties. The best was seeing how these little ones had become accomplished swimmers. Last ...

I was watching Chef's Table - Pizza the other night and thought it was time to try our local pizza restaurant. Aurora Pizza and pasta in Jennersville Village. Watching the program made the bar high as the pizzas on the show looked incredible. I never knew the best pizza in the US was served in Phoenix AZ. So, whilst not expecting the best pizza, i had hopes it would be tasty.I found the website for the restaurant and was able to order online. I selected the Special Pizza, sausage, pepperoni, onions, olives, mushrooms and other vegetables just to balance it out and make it somewhat healthy. The website told me I could collect it at 7.00 pm and as the shop was only a few minutes drive I relaxed and got in the mood watching the show about pizzas.Who knew that there was so much that goes in...

We have just moved to West Grove, about ten minutes west from Kennett Square, home of Longwood Gardens and Winterthur, well Winterthur is in Delaware but nearby.Most people do not like change, they take the same route to work every day, quite content to never explore. But, if you know me at all, you know I like to explore and discover things.So, I am driving around trying different roads, and discovering all sorts of small shops, restaurants etc. These will become part of my blogging as I help others discover new experiences too.Last week I had passed a shop which having just returned recently from Ecuador I realized was a pastry shop, as the writing was all in Spanish. Well, it was filled with Mexican delights. All fresh and delicious. My first visit I bought some of the lemon cake pic...

Basements are located under the main floor of a house and can offer additional space to a house.  Such as space for storage, for a laundry room, a furnace area with a hot water heater, or for the central a/c unit.  Some basements have an outside entrance as well as stairs to the main floor. Some may be finished, others may have dirt floors, with low ceilings, making them not really suitable as a living space.Bedrooms and bathrooms can also be located in a basement.  There are even some old houses in Delaware County, that have functioning toilets out in the open, near the laundry area, with no doors for privacy.But not all houses have basements.  I did not know that, when I was young.  I grew up in an old, three story, row home with a full basement.  All of my friends’ houses had basemen...
