A Exciting Day Trip to Saratoga Race Track

Pond Mountain Inn

Saratoga_Blog_1If you ask someone who’s spent a lifetime in the northeast they’ll tell you one of the top ten places to visit in the summertime is Saratoga Springs, or simply – Saratoga. Best known for the “mineral springs” and Baths, the water offered remedies for both internal and external illnesses as far back as the late 1700s – however, this was only of tertiary interest. We were there for the races! After a late start last Saturday – Jim and Karen picked us up from Pond Mountain Inn and we arrived shortly before noon, well ahead of the first race. Great seats out of the sun offered some great racing perspective.

When Is It Too Late to Purchase Home Owners Insurance with Hurricane Coverage for Florida

Budget Bi-Rite Insurance, Inc

ID-10092951Hurricane Season 2015 is here and we have our first official Hurricane called Danny. Time to keep an eye on the storm and get a list of supplies together just in case. As important as preparing for a storm is, you also need to make sure you have homeowners Insurance with Hurricane Coverage.

Don’t wait for a Tropical Storm or Hurricane watch or warning to be issued for your area.

If you do not have hurricane coverage and there is a named storm out in the ocean, now would be the time to get a policy before the warnings are up in your area.

Other things to consider for our homeowners policy.

Flood Insurance is not included in your homeowners policy. Flood insurance

Painted Upholstered Chair Makeover With Chalk Paint Is Unbelievable! Paint has grown in popularity for all sorts of projects. My daughter did a makeover on a coffee table with the Anne Sloan chalk paint and it came out beautiful in only one afternoon. I looked up the paint to see what else you could use it for and came across this DIY on Pinterest by Nancy at and found out you can use this to re-do and upholstered chair, how clever!  She brought home an old chair and did a great job making it look brand new and gorgeous!

If you are thinking of a chair, table or another item in your home to use this paint for, check out Nancy’s step by step how she did the chair.

See how to use chalk paint on upholstered chairs here.

Thanks Nancy :} Artsy Chicks do Rule!
