To my friends everywhere.
We are renting our family summer cottage, on Crystal Lake, Frankfort, MI. It is just 45 minutes south of the airport in Traverse City, and 10 minutes from Frankfort, MI. One of the great adventures is to visit the Sleeping Bear Lakeshore National Park, Please network the rental of our cottage at Crystal Lake in Frankfort, Mich. If you put a rental together for us, I will see that you get a finder's fee. If you rent it for your friends or family, we will negotiate a lower rent.
Thank you very much,
I just want to tell you I really loved that place. I had this vision in my head that I wanted a house right next to the water so, when we arrived that first evening, I was a little disappointed in the location. My opinion soon changed. I loved being up in the woods where it was quiet. The houses I saw that were next to the water had a road right against them. That was definitely not what I had in mind. Besides, I could hear the water and see it from our room and I didn't have to worry about the boys every minute with cars and water.
Like I said, I loved it there. I think the floors are pine. They are great. We definitely want to come back up sometime, but don't have a plan yet. Our summers are getting so miserable around here (Missouri)I just about can't stand it anymore. Most of this summer was 90's & 100's. I go from one air conditioned environment to the next. It was heaven not having the ac at the house. I at least had the window in the bedroom open every night so I could hear the wind through the trees. Wouldn't you know it, we came home to a nice cool down period.

If you are looking for some great reads while vacationing at Crystal Lake, then look no further than local author Robert Wangard's books. Though Malice is his latest fast pace mystery, you should start with the first in book in the series Target. The hero of these novels lives in a summer cottage on Crystal Lake! You can also read the short stories in Hard Water Blues. They are excellent and each one is different with twists that amaze you.
I LOVE this book on Cleveland. The author, Jennie Jones, shows off many of the beautiful buildings were in the city. I must admit, I had no idea that there were so many of them. I usually drove through it at night in the 1960's and got very lost on my way back home from Skidmore...

Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi House is about appreciating the simple and letting go of the superficial – the perfect antidote for a society in recovery from a decades-long consumerist binge. Far more than home décor, wabi-sabi is a state of mind: living modestly in the moment, stripping away the unnecessary, finding satisfaction in everyday things. Simply Imperfect recounts wabi-sabi’s rich history, tracing it from its Zen Buddhist roots through to the present day.
When these three teenagers appeared on the Italian talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” in 2009, they swept the competition with their amazing talents. They preformed a verion of “O Sole Mio” that was perfection and launched them into what will no doubt be a long career.
The group is made up of Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble. All three young tenors have made their mission clear. “We want to share our love for this music with people all over the world, including kids our own age.” That they say “would be our dream come true.” (originally from their website www.ilvolomusic.com)
