As a South Florida resident, you learn how important sunscreen is to protect you from sun damage. No matter the predicted forecast, sunscreen is the one step you should never skip before heading outdoors for the day. After applying sunscreen people wash or wipe off their hands, leaving the hands unprotected. Now their hands are exposed. Be intentional about protecting your hands with sunscreen.

What can you do to make your Southeast Florida home more attractive to buyers? What else can you do to get top dollar for your house? Here are five steps to consider taking:

 1. Assess the Value 

A Waterfront Properties real estate agent can show you the recent selling prices of comparable homes. But it does not hurt to look around yourself, just so you both can have a similar starting point. Bear in mind that these are what owners want to get for their houses, not necessarily what they will get. A better method is to look at recent sales prices with a real estate agent. 

You may have to pay capital gains taxes on the profit from the sale of your main home, but only if you make a bundle. Single individuals can keep up to $250,000 of the gain…

It is time to spring forward! Sunday, March 13, 2022, is Daylight Saving Time in the United States. It is the practice of setting the clock forward by one hour when there is longer daylight during the day, so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. It is that time of year again to change your clocks although most change by themselves now.

On December 20, 2021, South Floridians and Americans commemorate National Sangria Day! The Spanish were on to something tasty. Pick your preference, be it red or white, a nicely chilled Sangria is refreshing. Pour a glass and instantly be transported to the sandy beaches of Spain. It is made of sweetened wine packed with fresh fruit and sometimes spiked with liquor, sangria is a colorful and refreshing drink for summer parties.

Sangria is particularly based on the traditional red wine punch popular across Europe for hundreds of years. The punch base would be a Bordeaux wine. This red wine is traditionally made from a blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and merlot. Brandy and most fruits (except bananas) would also be added for extra…

Apologies to all the beautiful varieties of Bulldogs in South Florida for this regal holiday was overlooked.  Yesterday, April 21 was “National Bulldog Day”.  Bulldogs, beautiful? Well, yes! French, American, or English — bulldogs portray glamour in their own special way.

French bulldogs currently sit fourth on the American Kennel Club’s list. Bulldogs, technically a separate breed, are fifth.

Bulldogs were bred originally to help butchers in controlling livestock. The history of bulldog’s traces back to 5th century England, to a breed called the…
