Missed last week as I was in Colorado (2 days Vail, Copper, and A-Basin). This week I am late due to the amount of work I have going on. If anyone knows anyone wanting to purchase a new home in the Art Museum, please lte me know as I have a project of mine that we just framed up. Photos of the job site are here. And it will have a great roof deck with skyline view.
Last night was the 12th Annual Fairmount Bunny Hop. It is always the TH before Good Friday, so put it on the calendar for 2011. Monday is the Phillies opener which I am attending. The folks at Phils Fever have some more Phillies trips coming up (Boston and Chicago I believe).
If anyone wants a few hours of drinks on Thursday, April 15th, just fill out this survey for PhillyTrips.com.
For those thinking of buying a home, fyi, Long-Term Mortgage Rates at Second Highest Level This Year.
