    First, check the political situation in the country of your destination.

    Second, see if you need any shots to immune yourself against any medical problem that may arise.

    Third, let the American consulate know where you are going to be...( in some countries )

    In the past thirty years I have owned my own  workshop serving the home decorating industry.

    I worked with many interior designers over the years and experienced many ups and down.

    Many years ago we did not face competition the way we do today.

    When the mega stores  appeared a huge change accrued.

    We had to compete with products that were selling at much lower prices.

    Many small business owner closed the doors and started working for the mega stores.

    I did not give up, and focused on giving quality product, and service with out lowering my prices.

    I did loose a lot of business but, over time customers that were not happy with the services of the mega stores, were coming

    back...They were willing to spend a little more and receive professional service.

    The real estate business faces similar problems with so many people who try to sell their home with out the help of a broker.

    We should always focus on quality service and professionalism.

    I had a customer who wanted me to build two headboards for her master bed room.

    The headboards were 48" by 48" each and she asked me to install them on the wall with out any screws showing.

    The main problem was how am I going to mount a big and heavy headboard on the wall?

    I made a frame and inside it I installed a 1" by 6" wood that was cut at 45 degrees the long way.

    I did the same thing on the wall mounting the wood horizontal to accommodate the piece from the head board...

    This way I was able to just rest the headboard on the horizontal piece that was mounted on the wall.

    When you take exact measurements and know what you are doing  the job always becomes perfect the same time.

    Please enjoy this beautiful picture from Thailand.

    There are other things in life beside work...

    Lynbrook Cafe  (Members Only)

    After a long day of hard work, we went to the International Cafe in Rockville Center.

    We ordered a half portion of chicken salad.

    You may ask "why"?

    Well the cafe is known around the world to have the best ice cream in the world. (just kidding)

    I ordered a waffle with Elephant ice cream with chocolate syrup on top and sprinkles of dark chocolate.

    My friend got a Belgian waffle with mint chocolate chip ice cream.

    We took our time eating very slowly.

    Abut 40 minutes later we ordered Cafe latte with very small cube of dark chocolate.

    It was fun and was Worth every calorie.

    I enjoyed it.

    Turkish Food  (Members Only)

    My friend and I went to a Turkish restaurant that was decorated with Turkish motifs from the home land.

    In the backround a beautiful turkih music was played.

    Before we ordered any food we were served with with a platter of humus and Tahini and fresh rye bread.

    We ordered the main cource only because the portions are served too big.

    I got a whole fried Halibut that was served with couscous and little carrots.

    The side dishes were red beats,stuffed grape leaves,yogurt with dill.

    For the desert they served us Baklava,Sweet pastries,and Turkish coffee.

    At eleven p.m. the entertainment begun.

    A band of Turkish musicians had played very lively music. The light went of and on and a bally dancer started performing her art.

    We kept drinking and enjoyed the stuffed figs that were served with the drinks.

    A night to remember.

  • Walk From Woodmere

    It was a sunny day,and I left the office at Pugatch Realty and started walking down Broadway towards Cedarhurst.

    I just wanted to enjoy a little walk but, the day was so nice and I kept walking and enjoying the beautiful homes of Lawrence.

    At no time I was walking down central Ave. in Cedarhurst and window shopping along the strip of stores.

    I stoped for lunch at John's Cafe.

    After lunch I continue my walk towards the boardwalk.

    Twenty minuets later I was looking at wave ot the Atlantic ocean.

    While walking on the boardwalk I met an old friend of mine, and together we walked towards Rockaway Beach watching the

    new homes that were built there.

    The boardwalk end on 126th st.

    By then we were tired and I was walking for more than two ours.

    Another hour and a half and we crossed the Marine parkway bridge where we had a car service waiting for us.

    we were tired but felt goooood.
