It’s a great time to go to the movies… with lots of choices now and in the next few weeks – where do I begin!


BOLT” – A Family Fun Movie.  This animated feature has the voices of Miley Cyrus and John Travolta.


MARLEY & ME” – A Comedy, Family Movie. Based on the New York Times Best Seller.  Starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson AND their energetic pup, Marley.


FOUR CHRISTMASES” – A Comedy – with Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon.  This is not your typical heart-warming holiday movie.  Instead, Peace on Earth becomes Hell on Earth!


THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON” – Oscar Bait – A story of a man who ages backwards – This could be be the fantastical epic we’ve been waiting for AND Brad Pitt is the main character!


AUSTRALIA” –   Oscar Bait, Blockbuster – with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman in a sweeping WWII Love Story.  I have plans to see this movie this weekend!



TWILIGHT” – A Blockbuster, Tween Sensation – this vampire action, romance starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart is for all teens and their moms!


and last on my list… but not least – “SEVEN POUNDS” – Oscar Bait, Blockbuster– I am so looking forward to this!  Starring Will Smith, so you know it’s going to be BIG – an IRS agent tries to right his karmic wrongs by helping 7 strangers – one of which becomes a love interest, Rosario Dawson.

For more on some some of these movies, and many more due out click on ABC News.

With Lowes Movie Theatre in Danbury, CT – telephone # 203-796-7777- just 10 minutes from my home in New Fairfield, CT – I look forward to seeing a few of these movies… and seeing who gets an Oscar nod.

LIFE AS A REALTOR – Realtor Open House Day (2)

On Wednesday, it was Realtor Open House Day again here in Putnam County!  An associate of mine, Carolyn Wachter and I, set out for our visits to our offices new listings as well as others.

It was a beautiful day, and the first home on our agenda was in Kent, NY – moving on to a new 55 and Better community, currently in construction in Carmel, NY and then – without even knowing – we made our way to Patterson, NY to view an older home – which is always at the top of our must see list.

The Federal Style House, built in 1795, is owned by an Academy Award Winning Actor.  The wide-plank floor boards, the numerous fireplaces, the architect throughout the home was mesmerizing.  I always find myself wondering what it must have been like living here over 100 years ago – no electric, running water, telephone – no television!

In the Patterson Historical Society Book, where this home is featured, Carolyn read that a previous owner would bring her cow into her room at night to sleep.  I couldn’t help but think, “If These Walls Could Talk”. 

The listing agent took us on a tour of the home from top to bottom and into the barn-turned-guest-house overlooking the 41 plus acres estate – BEAUTIFUL!

Oh, and I was also able to view “The Oscar” sitting in the corner of a room – the cherry on top of a perfect day – my day… in the Life as a Realtor.
