When a  South Florida homeowner wants to renovate his/her home in the hopes of increasing its value, it is wise to know which renovations will enumerate their financial expenditure. Be cognizant that the average garage addition can cost more than $50,000, an  average bathroom remodel can cost more than $16,000, and adding a master suite or second floor can easily cost six figures, according to the National Association Remodeling Industry.

If the kitchen is over 15 years old, upgrading the appliances, cabinetry and flooring to contemporary ideals will net you more money at time of sale.  The kitchen is the “heart “of the home and a simple updating can increase the value.  Do not put in Wolfe or Sub Zero appliances if it is not warranted.

Why do we have a leap year every four years? A leap year is when an extra day is added to the end of February every four years. It all comes down to the solar system's discrepancy with the Gregorian calendar.

What do you do if you were born on February 29th.The chances of having a leap birthday are one in 1,461. It is suggested if you were born in the am, celebrate annually on February 28.  If you were born in the afternoon, celebrate on March 1.  However, if you are a true “leaper” you should only celebrate every four years, which at a certain age becomes very advantageous!

A complete orbit of the earth around the sun takes exactly 365.2422 days to complete, but the Gregorian calendar uses 365 days. So what to do but add 6 hours every year and

This week, February 17, 2016, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will host a public meeting on the replacement of the US 1 Bridge, connecting the Town of Jupiter to the Village of Tequesta.  The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the Jupiter Community Center. 

The bridge, constructed in 1958, spans over the Loxahatchee River and Intracoastal Waterway.  It has been deemed "structurally deficient and functionally obsolete".  In September of 2014, the bridge was structurally checked out and received "substandard sufficiency ratings providing justification for replacement". 

Back in 2013 a $16 million rehab of the bridge was taken into consideration.  Replacing the 50 plus year old

The hamburger has been around since the 19th century.  The mouthwatering creation has evolved since its creation and has become known as an iconic American food.   It originated as a hamburger sandwich consisting of ground steak placed between two slices of bread.  It was a brave step in the culinary world since the two ingredients, steak and bread, had been served alongside one another for hundreds of years.

Historians have varied opinions on who is credited with beef and bread roll sandwich. One version of the hamburger sandwich, and how it changed to the burger we all know and love, is in late 1800’s when a Texas café owner, Fletcher Davis, brought his perfected version of the hamburger to the 1904 St. Louis World Fair.

A couple of years ago a Florida man posted pictures on Facebook of himself and his daughters playing with a baby manatee.  Sounds innocent enough but according to the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act, “it is illegal to molest, harass, disturb or touch a manatee”.  The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission authorities arrested the Florida native.

The man had no idea it was illegal to touch the “vulnerable species”.  The man faced a misdemeanor charge that entails a couple hundred dollars fine and a couple months in jail.  He meant no harm to the little manatee.

The manatee is protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, by the Endangered Species Act of 1978, and the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act of 1978.  If convicted of
