Dick Winters, “Band of Brothers” commander, dead at 92. A heck of a man, as were the troops he led.

Griff Harris’s grandchild dead at 18. I didn’t know the boy, but I certainly know his extended family and, as a parent, I can surely feel the pain and the loss.
I’m trying to insert a simple poll here, but it’s not working, so just send a comment. Bummer! I figure $15 a head would get us some great food (bar extra).
But this story about four heroes, including a 61-year-old woman, who subdued the shooter says something encouraging about our country. But what an awful, horrible incident.
I really liked this 1839 home, but it’s got, maybe, 6’6″ ceilings and is all twisted and quirky. I’d have moved into it in a minute, but my clients, all families with young children, weren’t interested and I didn’t blame them. But now it’s under contract, which pleases me. Last asking price was around $1.6 million.
Remember real estate? This is a blog about real estate. And there’s finally a little news to report.
This Belle Haven house, with a bit of a noise issue from I-95, has finally sold, for $4.6 million, down quite a lot from its 2006 asking price of $6.9, but still substantially above its assessment of $2.3.
10 Meadow Lane (central Greenwich, off Zaccheus Mead), 2.59 acres, asked $3.950, got $3.075. 2.6 acres, assessed at $2.6.
Brother Gideon has got his Riverside listing at 47 Carrilglea under contract after dropping its price from $4.299 to $3.995. Assessed at $3.136. Too bad this didn’t happen before Christmas, but I do have a birthday coming around in July.
