I wanted to take the time to wish a happy 4th to all, and remind you that the 4th of July is known to be the most dangerous holiday of the year to drive.  So,  be  very careful and don't take any chances.  Enjoy family and friends, because you can! Posted by   Please click on Banner to to to Dock...
As of today Florida has enacted new drone laws.  However, they don't seem to mean too much!  It is now illegal to video (or photograph) any person, or property, without permission while using a drone.  The catch is, there are no criminal penalties attached to the law.  The law only gives the 'vic...
I always feel as if it is a privelage to show another agent's property.  When I am asked for feedback, I like to give it because I know the listing agent needs that information for the seller.We have a terrible time getting feedback from our showings, however.  I doubt that we receive feedback fr...

Myers is closed down as well as much of the main street (Cape Coral Parkway).  There are vendors and lots of fun.  The fireworks can be viewed from the event, or several parks around the area.  Many will tak...

Well, ME for one!  After 6+ power outages yesterday, we lost it this afternoon and it didn't come back, BUMMER!Oh well, it has to come on soon.  It always does.  I'll just watch some TV until it does... It is getting warm in here.  Maybe I should put on a fan... I'm getting hungry.  Not a problem...
Other than the heat and humidity, one major difference between summer and the other 3 seasons is our thunderstorms.  During the summer we can count on thunderstorms pretty much ever day.  Sometimes we only see them in the distance, but other times they are right on top of us!  Last night was one ...
