Have you ever heard of the song Dueling Banjos? It was originally called Feuding Banjos. In the song, one banjo player strums a few notes and then the other banjo player repeats the same strain of music. They go back and forth, back and forth taking turns playing until they are playing a duet.

That time is fast approaching for college students across the nation; the time where they will have to move out of the dorm rooms and back home for the summer.

Wednesday morning, tenants in a New York Harlem neighborhood complained of smelling gas. The Con Edison utility company immediately sent workers to investigate. They got there too late. Eighteen minutes later, a blast destroyed two five-story East Harlem apartment buildings at Park Avenue and 116th Street. Now, a mountain of ruble sits where once two buildings stood. [More]

Self Storage Can Come Up Big Even When it’s Mini

Just about everything comes in all shapes and sizes. It used to be that mobile phones nearly required a purse all their own; not they fit so well in our pockets we forget we have them sometimes.

For self storage auction goers part of the thrill in bidding is that you don’t know for certain what you are getting. You essentially make an educated guess from what you can see from the doorway. If bidders were allowed to see what was inside most of the units would go for next to nothing. With the holidays coming up a few self storage facilities in Virginia have decided to set up a different kind of shopping experience. [More]

Christmas trees, holiday decorations, music, wassail, sugary treats, shopping, Santa Claus. Add all of these together and they help to make a merry and jolly Christmas holiday season. But, what if you took them away? Would there still be Christmas?

Edison Properties isn’t taking all of those things away from Christmas – just the decorations. Instead of spending money on Christmas decorations, Edison Properties will use that money to make the holiday season a little brighter for those in need. [More]
