Oh yeah, Laural, kinky is a good word... better than the one that came to my mind when I opened this topic to read! Perhaps those Tarzan and Jane outfits will be in style here in DE before you know it!

Sorry, folks over 55... we "kids" could not resist the teasing! PA, I'm sure you weren't the only one chucklin' (or at least doing a double take driving by) watching the jungle jim/gym being installed!

I'll be taking a look at Roesville this weekend. From what I've seen on the website and in the brochure, it is an impressive looking community.

I'll also be seeing Champions Club. The Americana series of homes has piqued my interest.

Talking Resales in Heritage Shores

We have a townhome in Heritage Shores. We purchased in October of 2006 at half of the selling price. At that time, Lennar and Providence homebuilders were constructing homes as spec homes. As the housing market was beginning to decline, they drastically reduced the prices of these homes to reduce their unoccupied inventory. A number of the purchases were for investment purposes. Now these homes are being resold at their present market value which will net these investors a substantial profit.

We just happened to be there at the right time to secure one of these homes as our future primary residence.

Heritage Shores is beautiful, active-adult, community and is growing even in these difficult economic times.

We looked at Heritage Shores. There was one model with a kitchen that my wife absolutely loved!

Charley,

I have also been doing some research on the cancer clusters in Delaware. I was very concerned seeing all the news coverage about it. But, my research has calmed me down - maybe it will help you too. The reports I found online attributed the high rates to the huge influx of seniors into Delaware over the past several years. One report said it takes cancer up to 40 years to form from environmental causes or from personal habits (smoking). If a person lived in an area that causes cancer and moved to Delaware recently, they are added to the data on cancer occurences in the state. I could understand how our numbers get skewed. If they just collected data on lifetime residents of the state, I would be interested in seeing the figures.

Hi KatieKate,

Thanks so much for sharing those thoughts with me. I've done a great deal of research on the matter as well, and I think you're absolutely correct about the incidence data as it relates to those who relocated.

The data as it related to cancer, it's causes, potential clusters, etc, will not dissuade me from moving to Delaware.

Thanks again for your view of the data.

Charley
