Essex – North Ridge Homes For Sale – Essex – North Ridge Real Estate Foreclosures

Most people like fall in New York, then again to me June may be the most pleasurable time. Winter boots are out of sight, and wool gets traded in go back in the closet and are traded for billowy crisp cotton pique and everywhere you turn women are no longer in black but alternatively are clothed in dazzling blossoms that you find in a garden.

holidays are on everyone’s brains. And fifteen years ago, I met a wonderful lady with a dog and a cat who invited me to stay at her residence to take care of her animals while she went to Nantucket. The commute from New Jersey to Manhattan was long but feasible through public transportation. the thought of country living appealed to me since my mode of transportation would be a train. Her home was located in Glen Ridge, a small and charming prosperous district in Essex County, New Jersey, in a enormous a farm house buit in the 18th century.

With four bedrooms to choose from, snooze in (five if you include the in-law apartment over the garage across the road), but choose the quaint and rustic guest room in the garret, because it was not anyone’s private realmat least that’s what I believed.

]]>

Molly, the dalmatian, was sweet, but not the sharpest of dogs. The cat on the other hand, let me know what she thought of me and of my intrusion by parting her feces in the middle of the bed where I slept.

Then, I closed the attic door and banned the cat from my quarters but she had managed to make her needs known. Far from subtle, she would climb around on human consuming surfaces, also the kitchen table or the kitchen counter-top. when I invited my friend over for dinner in the course of our meal, the cat jumped right onto the dining room table, swishing its tail gaily and ever so nonchalantly depositing its hair on our plates as she sashayed by.

The cat and I never liked each other adapted to being in the same living space for the remaining weeks.

Because the lady of the house was generous and trusting she handed me the keys to her van. So on the weekends off I went on side trips touring the tri-state area with Molly. The mocking cat, left behind.

My first stop was Princeton to tour the campus, after taking photos and a visit to the Library, for lunch I went to a Italian restaurant, nestled on a charming block, where salamis dangled in the transomans sat at a table with Molly at my feet.

One thing I do after I relish a restaurant meal is to emulate the recipe at home, like a test kitchen, to see how close I can get to replicating the dish. I shock myself with my knock-offs, both good and bad.

This past weekend temperatures soared again so I brightened my banquet with my lemony Princeton recipe and offer it to you as a light summer starter.

1 cup Penne Pasta

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

3 cloves Minced Garlic

½ cup Green Onions (white & Green Parts)

3 Tablespoons Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

½ cup Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese

Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Salt To Taste

Extra Fresh Parmesan For Serving

The components in this recipe can be adjusted to whatever you have on hand, such as the addition of tomatoes, artichokes or mushrooms. Make sure you use a lot of garlic in any other case your meal will sit there with no bark and no bite. And that would be a doggone shame.

“Justice being taken away,” wrote St. Augustine centuries ago, “what are kingdoms but vast robberies?” In this detailed presentation, investigative journalist William Norman Grigg documents the emergence of a global “Robber State” in which police power is perverted into an instrument of oppression, and the forces of organized terror and plunder prey upon the rights of all people. Filmed in 1999 and produced by The John Birch Society.

Spruce Ridge Homes For Sale – Spruce Ridge Real Estate Foreclosures

Village Homestays in the Carpathians, Ukraine.

This type of tourism combines two positive features, low price and the comfort of feeling home instead of living at a hotel.

The rural green tourism Association of Ivano-Frankivsk offers this type of opportunity. Offering stays as low as 3 USD/night and updwards, really makes this an attractive offer. In addition the hosts offering their homes for you as visitor, really wants your visit because they want visitors, and not necessarily your money.

The setting is perfect with deep green spruce forests, mountain top meadows filled with aromatic grasses and flowers, serene Alpine lakes of the rocky Chornohora high peak range, sparkling streams and waterfalls fed by melting snow, gentle hills rolling off into the horizon – all these are elements of the Carpathian natural world. The landscape is characterized by mountains with broad rounded tops, that are often covered with meadows. Valleys, up to 1200 m deep, intersect mountain ridges and provide shelter for villages. The highest peak in Ukraine, Hoverla (2061 m, 6762 ft) is found in the Chornohora ridge.

Fifteen homes in the six villages named Vorokhta, Kryvopole, Krasnyk, Verkhovyna, Kryvorivna and Yavorivare currently featured on their list of homes to use during your stay in this region.

Vorokhta is a nice center for winter sports in Ukraine as itt has a high ski jump complex used for Olympic athletes training. It is a popular place for Cross-country and downhill skiing and several chair lifts (the longest 2km long) in operation during the winter makes it easy accessible for alpine skiing.

Easy access to Vorokhta with the train station in center of city.

Fir trees are in majority to broadleaf trees here since the elevations are moderately higher (800-900 m.) The wilder parts of the Carpathian National Park are located to the south of the village which provide interesting hiking opportunities. There is a large lumber mill on the edge of town which gives the town a run-down look.

There are some interesting sights: one of the oldest standing wooden Hutsul churches built in 1615, a newer wooden church with a unique style and colored ornamentation, and a large stone arch railroad bridge (one of the largest of its kind in Europe) built in 1894 back when Austria controlled the area.

The town of Verkhovyna is located in a valley along the Cheremosh River. It was one of the largest and most important Hutsul settlements. The writer Ivan Franko, called it the Hutsul capital. Verkhovyna is not along the road to anywhere and it feels more remote. The road that leads to Verkhovyna which is 150 km from Ivano-Frankivsk, is very picturesque either through Kosiv or Vorokhta. Since the road must wind through mountain passes makes it an exiting trip in itself. The valley lies at an 575 m height and is surrounded by mountains, excellent for day hikes: Mt Pushkar (812 m), Mt Mahurka (1025 m), Mt Synytsia (1186 m), and Mt Bila Kobyla (1473 m). Mushrooms can be found along Pushkar and Mahurka while wild berries can be found on Synytsia and Bila Kobyla. Along Mt Synystia one can find the “Dovbush Cliffs”.

The Gorgany region of the Carpathians has a rugged topography. The region, which is located approximately between Yaremche and Mizhiria, is characterized by deep valleys, steep mountainsides and mountaintops that are covered with boulder and rock fields. This territory was difficult to settle and to this day, parts of it remain a wilderness. The extensive forest consiting of fir and spruce, is a valuable natural resource. At the turn of the century an extensive network of narrow gage rails was constructed to facilitate extraction of timber. Today these lay abandoned.

To the south, characteristic features of the mountains are the mountaintop meadows or “polonynas”. The fragrances of sedges, rushes, grasses and wildflowers combine to produce the cool aromatic breezes of the polonynas. Over the past several hundred years the Hutsuls utilized these high altitude meadows as pastures for grazing herds of sheep.

The highest elevations of the Carpathians are found in the Chornohora mountain massif. This massive ridge extends for 40 km and consists of a series of peaks that rise above the treeline: Mt Petros (2020 m), Mt Hoverla (2061 m), Mt Turkul (1933 m), Mt Munchel (1998 m), and Mt Pip Ivan (2020 m). Two picturesque alpine lakes – Marichejka and Nesamovyta are also found here. Beech forests are found on northern facing slopes up to 1300 m elevation, while on southern slopes they grow at somewhat higher elevations. Above this, a forest belt consisting of spruce is found up to 1800 m. Above the forest limit lies a zone of dwarf pine, juniper brush, rhododendron and other bushes. The mountain tops consist of the polonyna meadows or boulder and rock fields. For centuries this frontier land formed the border between the states that occupied Galicia and Transcarpathia. At the southeast end of Chornohora, on the mountain Pip Ivan, a large astronomical observatory was built by a Polish and French partnership. This large structure has long been abandoned and has the appearance of a mountaintop castle ruin. Today, most of the Chornohora region is protected by the state. The northern part is territory of the Carpathian National Park, while the southern part is territory of the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve.

The Hutsul Alps, also called the Marmarosky massif, are more extreme in appearance than the typical gentle contours of the Ukrainian Carpathians. These mountains have pointed peaks, steep slopes, deep valleys, and sharp edged glacial features that distinguish themselves as the only part of the Ukrainian Carpathians with an Alp-like appearance. The major peaks are Mt Pip Ivan (1937 m), Mt Farcau (1958 m), and Mt. Mykhailyk (1918 m). There is a different Mt Pip Ivan located in Chornohora. Because of the extreme conditions here, this region is sparsely settled and rich spruce forests cover the mountains slopes below the rocky tops. The village Bohdan is the closest settlement to these mountains and only 10 km to the south is the Romanian border. The Chyvchyn mountains to the east are lower in elevation but also distinct from the rest of the Ukrainian Carpathians since, like the Marmarosky massif, they are made of hard crystalline schists.
