MAY; SEASONS CHANGE AGAIN!

 MAY; SEASONS CHANGE AGAIN!  Well, here spring is not the only season change, May starts our "down time". Things get a little quieter, a little slower, and a lot hotter! I still have four markets a week for May, but that's instead of 5 or 6. The snowbirds have all gone home, so traffic is…

APRIL IS A REAL GEM!

SEPTEMBER; MORE THAN A SEASON CHANGE!

SIZZLING SUMMER SAVINGS IN AUGUST!

Summer is hot alright! Florida is piping hot! it is also quiet down here, as this is my new "slow season". I am trying to get used to that! I used to be slow in the winter months of January, February, half of March- because there is snow on the ground in CT! Now, those…
