It is going to hit 100 Degrees here in the Prospect, CT area. Here is a quick list of thing you can do to keep cool!

Posted by Dave Jones Realty on July 6, 2010

Today here in Connecticut, (and most of New England) we are expected to have record high temperatures.

The air already feels like Pea Soup with the Humidity and with temperatures hitting 100 degrees, I thought I would post a list of things to do, or places to go, to cool off.

  1. Head to the local library. If you have kids the local library could be a quick and easy (and inexpensive) retreat. The Prospect library for one has a great children’s play area, Free Internet access, all the newest books and even DVD’s. Plus the A/C is REALLY cold in there.

  2. If you want to head out into your yard, find a nice shady spot, bring a big jug of a frosty beverage, and set up a sprinkler. It will do the grass and you a lot of good! Be sure to save your yard work for another day.
  3. If you are in the Prospect / Cheshire area and are in the mood for a beach but don’t want to head for the shore, then check out Mixville Park in Cheshire. There is a picnic area, a large playground for the kids and of course, a beach. Parking is less expensive for Cheshire residents so bring your ID’s.

  4. If you are in the Waterbury / Wolcott area you have a place close to you, Woodtick (Scoville) Reservoir in Wolcott.

  5. It’s always good to head to a movie in the extreme heat. Some of our local theaters still have discounts on Tuesdays. With the price of movie tickets what they are now, look for a discount!
  6. Head out to a local Ice Cream Shoppe like the Big Dipper Ice Cream in Prospect, The Prospect Dairy Bar in Prospect, Scooples Ice Cream in Cheshire or Wentworth’s Ice Cream in Cheshire. You still have to go out in the heat to get to them, but for a few moments you will have a creamy escape!

     

    Mmmmmm!

    Whatever you decide, please remember to keep hydrated and do not over due it!

If you are going to be in the sun load on the Sunblock.

Newsday article “Mold Problem found that wasnt disclaimed.”

Posted by Dave Jones Realty on November 5, 2007

S.C. Couple Find Secret Moldy RoomBy Associated Press 5:36 PM EDT, November 2, 2007 GREENVILLE, S.C.Kerri and Jason Brown discovered a secret room behind a bookcase containing a homeowner’s worst nightmare — mold. Also in the room was a handwritten note: “You found it!” What the Browns found was a mold problem so serious the previous owner was forced to move, according to the note.

Fearing their young daughter’s health, the Browns hired an environmental engineer who detected high levels of several types of mold, including a black mold fungus called Stachybotrys.

“It terrified me,” Kerri Brown told WYFF-TV in Greenville. “I had heard reports of what it does for children, and I was terrified.”

The Browns said a home inspection done before they bought it did not include a mold test.

The Browns filed a lawsuit claiming Century 21 Flynn & Youngblood, real estate agent Sue Bakx and Fannie Mae knew about the mold.

Fannie Mae, the Federal National Mortgage Association, bought the Brown’s home for $75,000 and will be dropped from the lawsuit. The family plans to continue the suit against Century 21 Flynn & Youngblood and real estate agent Sue Bakx.

Both the company and the agent told the television station they didn’t know anything about the mold. A telephone call to Century 21 was referred to Bakx, who did not immediately return a telephone message Friday
