Jun 28th 2012 7:02PM It would be interesting to see what happens if Fifth Third forecloses. Would they then have the right to resale that property as a condo?
I have a condo. I have been on the board of directors a few times and serving as president twice. We don't have any of the draconian rules I have seen posted. For $125 per month, we maintain the property, the landscape (5 acres), the pool, snow removal and pay water and sewer. Our bylaws do not allow for the property to become insolvent. As an association we are not even allowed to take out a loan (that is in the bylaws). As for rules, we require you be a good neighbor. Keep you balcony clean and presentable. Keep your car tagged (no junk cars). Clean up your pet waste. No glass at the pool for obvious reasons. Pretty simple stuff. O yeah. You can't be nude at the pool! LOL Considering the aging population, that is not an issue.
I pray there is some justice for these homeowners who've done nothing wrong, but for a real estate investor who clearly has the ethics of an alley cat.
Mar 29th 2012 6:32PM A mezuzah is very small. I am not Jewish, but received one as a gift. I even took it with me when I moved. Did I mention I moved from a condo? There was no damage. The hole to hold it, is TINY. These people are discriminating. I hope she smacks em good with a judgement in her favor.
Jan 14th 2012 9:44AM Wow. I can honestly say I have never had any of the problems listed above. I always travel with my Shepherd/Chow mix. She has NEVER had an accident in a hotel room. If she did, I would take the responsibility to immediately clean it up. That is what I would do at home.
She is a quiet girl. She only barks if someone is at my door. She has never shown agression toward people (squirrels are a different story), but I always make sure we are out of the room for cleaning. If she is there on her own, I advise the front desk to skip maid service that day. Just don't know what my girl would do if a stranger invaded her space, so why take the chance.
I have never been awakened by an alarm clock (thin walls?). The only difficulty I ever had was I was staying in a hotel post surgical procedure. Despite being exhausted, I had difficulty sleeping due people milling about the halls. Well it was day time, right?
I have stayed in 5 stars and budget. If you are traveling with children, getting them to sleep has to be difficult. I would say if you don't want calls from the front desk barring an emergency, just tell the front desk
Sep 27th 2011 7:38PM The lady has the right to fly her flag, insensitive as it may be. The neighbors built a fence. Don't blame them. IF this lady just wants to fly her flag, why does she feel the need to now fly it higher than the fences?
Now it is completely disrespectful. If it's about self expression, she can keep that flag on her side of the fence in front of the house.
I am a white lady. This woman can say she isn't racist, but she is at the very least inciting discord.
Aug 24th 2011 4:03PM I have one dog. She requires attention. I would love to adopt more. My current is a shelter dog, but I only want to have what and can care for well.
Jul 12th 2011 5:55PM You have to go to Elizabeth's Cafe & Winery in Duck. It is WONDERFUL. Every morsel is like a piece of heaven. It was vote in the top 25 restaurants in the US.
It isn't cheap and you will need a reservation. I love Outer Banks. Myrtle Beach has become so ...... pedestrian?
Jun 13th 2011 5:04PM The are promoting the show. No such thing as bad publicity apparently.
Sheesh. America has gone by way of the handbasket
Jun 8th 2011 2:46PM Why do people think it's ok to have a kid, multiple kids and the father doesn't have enough respect for her or the family to marry her? Obviously they have an ongoing relationship, so what are they waiting for, retirement?
Mar 25th 2011 8:31PM First we have Bill Mahr calling Palin an evil name (no, I am not a Palin fan, but that word does not belong in the language) ane then we have Lopez (who isn't exactly thin) calling Kirstie a pig.
Consider Lopez is the same guy who divorced his wife after she gave him a kidney.
Bill Mahr is on HBO because he couldn't make it on the network. He is the reason I wouldn't waste my money on HBO
Feb 21st 2011 3:32PM I spend an hour several times a week on the treadmill.
I have lost 60 pounds and my thighs are like bricks! LOL
I did use a protein supplement (nothing special, 52 grams protein per scoop. Can be found at WalMart or any health food store)
I believe it is a combination of things. O yeah. I drank a ton of sugary sodas. Gave those up for the most part and switched to generic Crystal Lights.
Bottom line is, you have to find what works for you. I had tried WW, Jenny Craig, you name it, I was on it.
