Thank you for the nice review…

Judy B:

Feedback: The Podcasting 101 tutorial was immensely helpful!  I signed up to learn about podcasting to help launch a new business. Not only did I learn the basics, but Burt Lewis customized the sessions and introduced me to the tools I needed prior to setting up a podcast. Burt is a hugely generous person who is passionate and dedicated to sharing his expertise to help others succeed and reach their true potential.  He is one of the most knowledgeable, smartest people I have ever met. More importantly, he has a wonderful, motivating teaching style that doesn’t intimidate. I’m not sure how Burt did it, but after meeting with him for three sessions, I was able to update my social media tools, start a website, and test out and add an ntroductory podcast onto the website.  Best of all, I am now truly excited about playing around with these tools. I would encourage anyone who wants to improve their podcasting and other social media computer skills to sign up for Burt’s classes. He’s the best!

How I won the 1999 Town of Easton Outstanding Achievement Award

In 1996 I took a part time night job after my day job working for the Internet Connection (iCi) in Mansfield Mass., a local Internet access dial up provider. I took the job for the sole purpose of learning from the inside about the new piece of technology called the Internet and the World Wide Web. It was just starting, I new it was going to be big and I wanted to learn and know all about it… More to come, stay tuned…12654322_10208053919613609_1866953152359562717_n

Most Popular Active Adult Communities of 2019

Sun City Grand near top Active Adult popularity list

Sun City Grand is getting recognition as one of the top adult communities in the nation.

Retirement lifestyle website 55places.com ranked Sun City Grand ninth on its recently released “Most Popular Active Adult Communities of 2019” list.

That’s a 12-spot job for Sun City Grand since last year’s list. It’s the seventh year in a row the site has conducted the list, finding On Top of the World in Ocala, Florida, as the top community.

Sun City came in 11th on the list, while Sun City was finished 16th. Sun City Festival in Buckeye was one spot behind.

The study based its ranking on user feedback and their comments. The editors wrote “Sun City Grand features a bountiful lineup of amenities, social activities and golf courses.”

One person commented how “I’ve made more friends than I have time for.”

The study found Surprise is tied for second-most adult communities with three. Only Ocala has more with four. In all, Arizona’s 17 active adult communities is second in the nation only to Florida’s 40.

Other communities in the top five include Latitude Margaritaville (Daytona Beach, Florida), Solivita (Kissimmee, Florida), Sun City Hilton Head (Bluffton, South Carolina) and The Villages (The Villages, Florida).

“We help prospective homebuyers find the community where they can imagine their every day coming alive— meeting new friends, finding a fulfilling hobby, enjoying amenities, and experiencing an enriched lifestyle,” said Todd Warshauer, vice president of sales for 55places.com. “But we also know that decision does not come easy. No matter the interest or requirement, there’s an option, and this list of preferred communities is a good place to start.”
