There is no substitute for quality. Greenwich Prime Meats offers a perfect example. Prime speaks for itself, whether you are in the mood for burgers, steaks, and filets, or more into pork roasts, ribs or lamb. This is not supermarket meat.

If you haven’t been to Greenwich Prime Meats on...

  By Admissions Expert, Dr. Paul Lowe The Common Application 2018-2019 was launched about three weeks ago and we are now receiving calls from very anxious and stressed parents because their children (rising seniors) just started the preliminary portions of the Common Application. The Common App is more than just about the main essay! Every section is devised so that the admissions officers get to know (or find ways to reject) a student. Statistically, it takes top colleges...

  By Admissions Expert, Dr. Paul Lowe Parents create spread sheets, talk with friends, read books, search websites, form groups to share tips and “sure-fire” methods, try to “chat” with admissions industry personnel, obtain letters of support from VIPs, take copious notes during college tours, and try to gather information from my workshops. For some parents, they discover, when it is too late, that what is really required to help their child with the hyper-competitive college admissions process...

  By Marty Olivieri – Owner of Olivieri Roofing If you have been considering installing metal roofing on your home, there are a few things you should know first.

This is the key to making a choice that’s truly beneficial for your...

  Written By Marianne Riess The carpet on the stairs from our finished basement up to the first floor was looking terrible. Carrying platters up from the outdoor grill had resulted in too many splashes on the beige carpeting. We decided we had to replace it before the sanitation police arrested us for being deplorable. The terracotta tiled the floor had led us to choose light-colored carpeting in the past; often it looked soiled after only a few...

  The school year had come to an end. It had been an absolutely great year and the teachers were as sad as the children to say goodbye. Fortunately for the teachers and the children who were able to stay on, there was a little three week summer camp. This was essentially an extension of the school year along with sprinklers and more time for everything, because of the longer day. It was heaven for all. The...

  By Admissions Expert, Dr. Paul Lowe Many parents, students, guidance/college counselors, and even my fellow educational consulting colleagues are under the belief that college admissions is an exercise in determining the “right fit” and that gaining acceptance into the Ivies and highly selective colleges is just a game of chance and luck. I disagree! In participating in competitions these days, many students (K-12) are taught that everyone wins. With regard to the college admissions process, it is acceptable...

We have a camp in the Adirondacks that is off the grid, and I...

  After the long winter and all the spring rain, my car looked tired and worn. Every time I went to the car wash, it would immediately snow or rain and the car would get streaked and dirty again. For Mother’s Day, my Godson gave me an unusual present - a car detailing by East Coast Auto Detailing, one of his advertisers. Finn and his helper Jason showed up in my driveway at 8:00 AM on the...

  By Marty Olivieri - Owner of Olivieri Roofing There are a number of siding choices available for new or existing homes. Wood, stucco, aluminum and vinyl siding are all options with pros and cons. Esthetics, cost, durability, efficiency and maintenance are a few of the considerations. Wood is a traditional choice, having been around for thousands of years. It has a higher installation cost and slightly lower efficiency. It also requires greater maintenance to stay in good...

  “I just want to say goodnight to my lady b… I mean desk. Then I will go right to sleep.” Not really listening to her daughter, Lexi replied, “Okay, Alice. Remember, tomorrow is a school day and you need extra sleep.” “I am back in bed now. Goodnight Mommy.” Alice couldn’t stop thinking about her ladybug, which was in a little jam jar with holes in the metal top. Earlier in the year, the jar had housed a...
