Welcome to my new blog. I always wanted to have a professional looking blog, and have given this a lot of thought. The template is called the “Hemingway Rewritten”, and I figured I always wanted to write and have lots of characteristics of this great American writer like a round belly and white beard. But seriously, the header photo has a beautiful country image, a site that I enjoy seeing now living in Virginia. But my roots are from Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in a land of concrete front lawns and the smell of asphalt on a hot summer morning. And on that hot summer day, you cooled down by not going to a beach a few minutes from your house (I am right by Buckroe Beach), but by opening up a fire hydrant, (aka Johnny pump) and using a seared open tin soda can to jettison the water on your friends and oncoming cars.
I will always love Brooklyn, and do miss it (I spent 49 years there), but Hampton is now my home. I’ve grown accustomed to say hello to strangers I pass on the street, enjoy having the beach 3 minutes away, enjoy a bit slower pace (but really not that much slower) and love not having to spend 45 minutes looking for a parking space.
After teaching for over 21 years in Brooklyn, my main profession now is Real Estate, (however, I was also a Real Estate Agent there as well) and my blog will be focused mostly on those matters. Sure I will talk about new listings, mortgage rates and new construction. But real estate is much more than that. It is about what concerts, shows, and exhibits that are happening in the area as well as sporting events. It is about new stores and restaurants and the local economy. And that is what I am going to accomplish in my new blog.
But those who know me as friends, clients, students and social media friends, you know that I love comedy as well, so you will see some funny posts as well.
On my sidebar, I have listed centers of music, arts, plays, performers, etc. The list will increase as I add more to my blog. For me, the area to which you reside has to be fun, and entertaining. I hope you agree.
I hope you enjoy, I hope you come back, often!
