Thinking about creation a co-op, made primarily of woodworkers but investors would be welcome also, that would have a shop of wood making machines to tech wood working and have members use the shop 24/7. Sort of like when 10 people buy an airplane and each shares the fun and expenses.
And ideas out there? We could have retired shop teachers help us get started, if we had enough interests, we could even pay the teachers. I can’t find any classes around the Island, shame with 450,000 people we don’t have any interest?

Andrew’s Diner, Eltingville, Great Kills, Staten IslandThis is a great place to eat. Having food allergies, I’m always leery about going out to eat. This place took care of my problem. The chef supervisor Gus, came to my table and personally took charge. He made sure my order was made the way it had to be made. Then he came back to my table to check up. Now let me ask you when was the last time you saw the owner, or a manager come out to ask the customers how things are? This guy was all over the place talking to all the customers. And BTW, the food is great and reasonable. Get there early for dinner if you want a good parking spot. This place is expanding and by the many happy people I see there, it’s going to be around for quite a while.
George, you have a good son taking care of your place. Thank you.

Staten Island South Shore house for sale

What a GREAT time for buyers on Staten Island. Whether is Annadale, Eltingville, Great Kills, or any where on Staten Island. Mortgage rates are around 4 1/2% for buyers with good credit, see

Prices have come down, generally speaking for all of Staten Island, about 13% from the high of 2006.

So, the average price (sold) in ’06 was $456,040, and from August 31, 2009 to Sept 1st, 2010 the average sold price was $396,917.

Now there are exceptions of course, I’m just saying average prices. Now combine that price reduction with low mortgage rates and WOW, we should be having a boom market. But we’re not. So, where are all you savvy buyers and what are you waiting for?

Check houses for sale either on my website, or my company’s site, Appleseed Homes.
