Yes I know....yesterday's blog was lame, but the new movie "Sully" is anything but.  I saw this on opening day and here's what stood out for me. 

First, it is a true story - which always make the story line more impactful and second - it was amazing to hear the back story -  all the things that Sully and his first officer had to endure trying to prove to the FAA that landing on The Hudson was not an option.

If any of you have ever been in a plane when there was a bird strike, you can probably relate.  I've also been through a similar event, although fortunately we made it back to the airport. 

I was a flight attendant in the early 80's on a 737 twenty minutes out of Tampa, Fl headed to Houston.  We were at ten thousand feet when we struck birds

There is an article in The Palm Beach Post on Monday that talks about the "Draw of ecotourism growing in North County". Anyone who lives here will tell you that we "love where we live" because there is an un-limitless number of days available for "hiking, biking, boating, fishing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, swimming, snorkeling, diving, etc etc etc..." mainly because the average year round temperature in Florida is 84 degrees. Yeah, we get those tropical rain storms that usually pass by in 15 minutes, but for the most part, what more could you ask for? Looking to make Florida your next home? We would love to help!! ‪#‎loveFlorida‬ ‪#‎livewhereyouvacation‬

A Wikipedia history lesson on: "The Easter Bunny (also called the Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. Originating among German Lutherans, the "Easter Hare" originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behaviour at the start of the season of Eastertide.[1] The Easter Bunny is sometimes depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature carries colored eggs in his basket, candy, and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus or the Christkind, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holidays. The custom was first mentioned in Georg Franck von

This past Sunday we decided to play tourist and went on an Intracoastal Brunch Cruise.  The weather could not have been more beautiful and it appeared as if we weren't the only ones who thought the same thing.  Here you can see Marina Grande Condominiums in the background.  There were many boaters, wave runners, kayaks, paddle boarders and swimmers all out enjoying everything South Florida has to offer.  It's a beautiful thing to be out breathing the salt air, enjoying the sunshine and just relaxing in the cool breeze, remembering that not all humans on planet earth get to enjoy such wonder.  So breathe in, look up and believe this.....you too could experience this beauty just by calling us today.  Come enjoy South Florida, where our yearly average

Buyers may find mortgages easier to get

 

NEW YORK – Feb. 25, 2015 – Good news for potential home shoppers: A Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) index shows lender requirements for credit scores, downpayments, and other key mortgage terms are finally loosening up.

Some lenders even expanded the types of mortgages they offer. These moves come after years of tightening loan requirements in the aftermath of the housing crisis.

The newly released MBA index shows that recent improvements in lending are mostly tied to the government's efforts to ease regulations and improve affordability in the housing market. For example, mortgage financing giant Fannie Mae is now allowing purchases of conventional mortgages that have downpayments as low as 3

Awesome News!    Home construction in 2012 highest in 4 years   WASHINGTON (AP) – Jan. 17, 2013 – U.S. builders started work on homes in December at the fastest pace since the summer of 2008 and finished 2012 as their best year for residential construction since the early stages of the housing crisis.

The Commerce Department said Thursday that builders broke ground on houses and apartments at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 954,000. That’s 12.1 percent higher than November’s annual rate and nearly double the recession low reached in April 2009.
