  • Good Advice About Staying Young

    1.  Try everything once. On one woman's tombstone, she said she wanted this epitaph:  "Tried everything twice.  Loved it both times!"

    2.  Keep only cheerful friends.  The grouches pull you down. Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!"

    3.  Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever...  Never let the brain get idle.  "An idle mind is the devil's workship."  And the devil's name is Alzeheimer's!"

    4.  Enjoy the simple things.  "Stop and smell the roses."

    5.  Laugh often, long and loud.  Laugh until you gasp for breath.  And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him/her.

    6.  The tears come:  Endure, grieve, and move on.  The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.  LIVE while you are alive.

    7.  Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.  Your home is your refuge.

    8.  Cherish your health:  If it is good, preserve it.  If it is unstable, improve it.  If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

    9.  Don't take guilt trips.  Take a trip to the mall, even to the next County, to a foreign Country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

    10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at EVERY opportunity.

    11. Forgive NOW those who made you cry.  You might not get a second chance.

    12. Remember!  Lost time can never be found.

    13. Wine does not make you fat...  It makes you lean....  (against tables, chairs, floors, walls, and ugly people.)

    14.  "Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil - It has no point."

  • Warning - New Speed Limit - Burnt Store Road

    Due to the new construction to widen Burnt Store Road, the speed limit from just outside the front gate entry on Burnt Store Road north to just beyond Zemel Road is now 45 mph.  The sheriff is already there enforcing the new speed limit.

    Charlotte County Government - Community Development Engineering Status Update - as of March 24, 2014 - Burnt Store Road Phase III Construction:

    Construction has begun on the four lane expansion of Burnt Store Road, Phase 3, from the Lee County Line to north of Zemel Rd. 

    Expect to see construction warning signs going up, survey work, installation of the 2 foot high erosion congtrol black plastic screens along the right of ways, removal of all obstruction within the right of way, including trees, shrubs, brush, buildings, landscaping, signs, etc. 

    Soon after the right-of-ways are cleared, the conractor will start to install all of the new utility lines along the east side of the new roadway.

    During the construction period, there will be heavy equipment, construction vehicles, supplies, workers, and other construction activities adjacent to the traffic on Burnt Store Road.  Some of the activities will require blocking of traffic for short periods of time.  Travelers are urged to drive with caution in this area.

    Estimated Project Schedule:  Construction 3/10/2014 - 9/10/2015

    Please keep in mind that project schedules are contingent upon many factors and are subject to change.  Updates will be provided as information becomes available.

  • 9 Thoughts To Ponder

    1.  Life is sexually transmitted.

    2.  Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

    3.  Men have 2 emotions:  Hungry & Amorous.  You can't tell them apart.  If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.

    4.  Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day.  Teach a person to use the internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, or maybe years.

    5.  Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospitals, dying of nothing.

    6.  All of us could take a lesson from the weather.  It pays no attention to criticism.

    7.  In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird.  Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

    8.  Life is like a jar of Jalapeno peppers -- what you do todayk, might burn your butt tomorrow.

    9.  Don't worry about old age - It doesn't last that long.

WARNING TO ALL PET OWNERS

Residents with pets:  Just recently, it has been reported that a coyote has taken a small pet.  Be aware that they are around and watch your pets carefully.  Keep them safe!

Are you leaving your home vacant?

Please do not leave your home without having a plan for someone responsible to check on it at least twice a month. Don't depend on a neighbor unless they are willing to take financial responsibility for any damage caused by not checking on your property regularly.

Air conditioners that stop working, Hurricanes, Tropical Storms, leaks in your home or from your neighbors- any one of these things - plus the heat and humidity of Florida, creates the perfect environment for mold growth and structure damage.

If you live in a high rise condo, you may have done everything possible to avoid a catastrophe, but if your neighbor above you has a problem, they may unknowingly share it with you.

Mold is very difficult and costly to remove and can cause serious health problems. Preventive care is very inexpensive.

If you have a car, boat, or gulf cart, please be sure someone is checking regularly on them also.

A little planning can save you from getting "bad" news later.

House Watch & More, LLC is licensed, insured, and belongs to the National Home Watch Association.  In addition to giving you "Peace of Mind", we can also do small repairs and maintenance for a very reasonable fee.

Call us for more information at (239) 707-5607.  If you don't use our services, please, call SOMEONE! Don't take any chances!!

Laughter-It's Good For Us

"Martin had just received his brand new driver's license. The family troops out to the driveway, and climbs in the car, where he is going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately heads for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver. I'll bet you're back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive, says the beaming boy to his father. Nope, comes dad's reply. I'm gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like you've been doing to me all these years."
