A group of three from Total Home Cleaning in Summit worked in Keansburg recently to clean and rebuild homes ravaged by Superstorm Sandy.

The group worked side by side with about 500 volunteers that were both local and distant. Tasks included cleaning out the shed and yard, and tearing the floors and walls from inside the house on the first floor.

Supplies and materials necessary to rebuild were brought in from both clients and a Girl Scout Troupe from the area.  When the cleaning was done, there were about 15 bags of new clothing, blankets, food and cleaning supplies delivered and donated to those in need.

"It was amazing to see the homes and streets that were affected - it felt like we were in another country," said owner Ines Cohron. "It was even more amazing to know that we were only 40 minutes from home. It was touching to hear the homeowner's story of wading through waist-high water. I'm glad we could help. It was also great to see so many people come together including poeple from as far as Cape Cod. At the end of our day, I was reminded of the adage that many hands make light work."

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
