O Christmas Tree…Dazzling Lights that Delight US!

Christmas tree with presents and fireplace with stockings --- Image by © Royalty-Free/CorbisO Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Much pleasure thou can’st give me!     How often has the Christmas tree afforded me the greatest Glee! We all enjoy the bright lights of the Christmas Tree, seen everywhere for people of all faiths to enjoy!  We have a lovely decorated Christmas Tree in the lobby of the Plantation House at Brunswick Plantation and Golf ResortBP Christmas TreePass Our Golden Christmas Tree on the way into the Brunswick Plantation 19th Hole…With More Decorative Delights as well As Treats for your Taste Buds!

Usually, Christmas Trees are also in the homes of Christians…decorated in the theme or style of the family. The decorating is part of the Fun of Memories Made Together! christmas-ornaments-no-2-pencilSome ornaments are made by children for parents to save and treasure for many years to come!

 History of the Christmas Tree

The idea of a Christmas tree has a long history! The Christmas tree has evolved through the years to what it means to so many today!

1510…The first written record of a decorated Christmas Tree come from Riga, Lativa.  Men of the local merchants decorated a tree with artificial Roses, and danced around it in the marketplace and set fire to it.  The Rose was used for many years and is considered to be the symbol for the Virgin Mary!

1630…There is a record form Alsace, France (Then a German territory) that trees were sold in the Marketplace , brought home, and set up undecorated.

Christmas Paradise Tree1600’s…It was common to decorate Christmas Trees with Apples. This was a holdover from the 14th and 15th centuries when evergreen boughs hung with apples were the only prop used in the “Miracle Plays” that were performed at the churches on December 24th. December 24th was Adam and Eve’s Day  in the early Christian calender.  The plays were used to as a way of teaching the Bible to a largely illiterate population.

1700’s…In parts of Austria and Germany, evergreen tips were brought home and hung down from the ceiling. They were often decorated with apples , gilded nuts, and red paper strips.   Edible ornaments were added and the trees were often called “Sugar Trees”! Christmas tree with candlesIMG_5358-500x422The first accounts of lighted candles on trees were in France in the 18th century!

1800’s…The Christmas tree was introduced in the United States by German settlers. They grew from Table Top to Floor-to-Ceiling Trees!

1883…Sears, Roebuck, & Company began offering artificial trees.

1901…The first Christmas Tree Farm was started when W.V. McGalliard planted 25,000 Norway Spruce on his farm in New Jersey. Theodore Roosevelt tried to stop the practice of having Christmas Trees out of the concern about the destruction of forests. His two sons didn’t agree and enlisted the help of conservationists, Gifford Pinchot to persuade the President that , done properly, the practice was not harmful to forests.

1930’s…Franklin D. Roosevelt started a Christmas Tree Farm on his estate in Hyde Park, New York.

1966…The National Christmas Tree Association began its time-honored tradition of having the Grand Champion grower present a Christmas Tree to the First Lady for display in the Blue Room of the White House. That year Howard Pierce of Black River Falls, Wisconsin, presented a tree to President Lyndon Johnson and First Lady “Lady Bird” Johnson.

Christmas tree farmheader_graphicToday…Approximately 25-30 million Real Christmas Trees are sold each year in the United States.  Most all of these come from Christmas Tree Plantations.

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert …Christmas Tree Tradition

christmas_tree_albert2_747156Queen Victoria was married to Prince Albert who was originally from Germany. She encouraged  him to put up a Christmas Tree for their family at Windsor Palace.A photo of the Royal family enjoying their Christmas Tree was featured in “The Illustrated London News! The Christmas Trees in the homes of the British became very popular!

Christmas tree Candles to Electric Lights

Christmas Lights EdisonFor years many families used candles on their Christmas Trees.  This practice was often dangerous and led to many home fires. Thomas Edison created the very first strand of electric lights. During the Christmas season of 1880, these strands were strung around the outside of his Menlo Park Laboratory. Railroad passengers  traveling by the laboratory got their first look at the electrical light display, but it would take 40 years for electric Christmas lights to become the tradition as we know it today.

Chritmas tree lights1222bt_256x192_christmastreelightdayEdison’s friend and business partner in Edison’s Illumination Company, Edward Johnson, hand-wired 80 red, white, and blue light bulbs and wound them around his Christmas Tree in 1882. Not only was the tree illuminated with electricity, it also revolved!

In 1885, Grover Cleveland is credited with having the White House Christmas Tree illuminated with electric lights.

 

White House Christmas Tree Tradition

Christmas treepresident-benjamin-harrison-dressed-up-as-santa-claus-and-had-the-first-white-house-christmas-tree-seen-here-with-his-wife-daughter-mary-and-grandchildrenSome say that President Franklin Pierce had the first Christmas Tree in the White House during the 1850’s. The President usually credited with having the first White House Christmas Tree is President Benjamin Harrison in 1889.  His wife, Caroline Harrison helped decorate the tree, which was installed in the second floor oval parlor…Today’s Yellow Oval Room.

  • First Lady Lou Henry Hoover began the tradition of Presidential wives decorating the White House Tree.
  • In 1961 First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy began the tradition of selecting a Theme for the White House Christmas Tree by decorating with a Nutcracker Motif.

Rose and Bob Beyer…”Amore per la Vita” Love for Life!

Fountain-Collage-for-Blog-PostBrunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ® really is a “Better Way of Life” for people who live here. It is a beautifully landscaped, gated community with friendly folks from everywhere! We enjoy hearing the stories of these Great People of Brunswick Plantation! The variety of backgrounds and interests are part of what makes this such a vibrant community! Rosemarie (Rose) and Bob Beyer have been members of this community since they built their home on South Middleton Drive. They had bought property in 1995 in planning for Bob’s retirement from the Post Office in 2000.

Rose and Bob…Getting to Know You!

Tarrytown, New York was where Rose and Bob first met when Bob’s family moved next door to Rose’s family. Rose and Bob were 8 and 9 years old, respectively! They became friends and played together for these years.  Rose says she was a Tomboy and enjoyed playing with the guys! When they were around 12 and 13 years of age, they dated each other and really fit the song… Getting to know you, Getting to know all about you, Getting to Like You, Getting to hope you Like Me!

Italian dinnerlittle-sicily-dinner-buttonBob says he ate at Rose’s house two or three time a week, as he loved the great Italian cooking her Mom prepared for the family! Mamma Mia, that’s a Great Italian Cooking! Maybe there is something to the old adage…”The way to a Man OR Boys’ Heart is through his stomach!

cup of teayou__re_my_cup_of_tea_by_mrsdougan-d5jjyohThough I’m sure there was much more to Bob and Rose discovering that they truly were each others’… “Cup of Tea”!

Sleepy Hollow Highphoto3Bob and Rose went to Catholic School together before high school. They both then went to Sleepy Hollow High School. They dated for the first three years in High School. They then went their separate ways and reunited when Rose was a Senior in high school.

 

North Tarrytown, NY…The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Tarrytown_signThe first residents of Tarrytown, New York were the Native American Weckquaesgeek Tribe. They fished the Hudson River for shad, oysters, and other shellfish.

TarrytownOld-Dutch-ChurchThe first European settlers of Tarrytown were Dutch farmers, fur trappers, and fishermen. Tarrytown is within the lands of the former Dutch Colony of New Netherland. The Dutch named the area “Terwe Town” (Wheat Town) as the soil was light and ideal for growing cereal grains like wheat. Mispronunciations led to the current name of Tarrytown.

sleepy-hollow-tarrytown-chamberTarrytown, (Specifically, North Tarrytown) , was described in 1829 by writer Washinton Irving in “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”! Interesting to note that Washington Irving is Laid to Rest in the southern end of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery overlooking the Old Dutch Church.

Tarrytown bookCHRON-2TIn Fact, There are many references and places to visit in Tarrytown related to this legend. The Chronicles of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow may be an interesting read! Hence, the name high school Rose and Bob attended…Sleepy Hollow High School!

 

 

Going to the Chapel of Love!

Beyer WeddingRose and Bob married in a lovely ceremony in 1965 !  They shared  the pictures of special that day with us…That Loving Feeling! They recently celebrated their 49th Wedding Anniversary! In an early celebration of their 50th Wedding anniversary…They took a memorable trip to Italy along with several other folks from Brunswick Plantation! So, next year, on their actual 50th Anniversary, they can celebrate again! Endless Celebrations for Endless Love!

Married Life and Family

Beyer Family CollageRose and Bob lived in an apartment in Tarrytown and later moved into a house of their own in 1972. They had a dear daughter, Tracy, who now lives in Danbury, Connecticut and is married to Bill. Beyer PortraitsTracy and Bill have 6 year old Isabella whom they call Izzy! Izzy is a delight in all of their lives! Tracy and Bill also have Bill’s son, 16 year old Will, three days a week in a joint custody arrangement with Will’s Mother. It’s All a part of This Happy Family! Tracy and Bill met while working for Conair. They are both still employed at Conair…Bill as an IT and Tracy in the HR department! Looks like that Conair ” True Glow” selection really worked for them!

Bob worked for the U.S. Post Office for 36 years, while also having his own Painting and Sheet Rock business for 25 years. This was great experience and expertise for the work he now does with Todd Helf and Kevin Anderson as building superintendent for homes built at Brunswick Plantation! There are currently 15 houses in the process of being built. And the Beat and the Building goes On!

While living and raising her daughter in Tarrytown, Rose was employed as a Para-legal at Bank of New York…In Real Estate 1st and then as Assistant Vice-President…Head of the Mortgages Department. Rose noted that they did mortgages for several famous folks….Jerry Seinfeld’s new wife & her former husband, Chris Reads, Robert De Niro, and Marcus Camby to name a few. Though Rose did not actually get to meet all of them, she did meet Marcus Camby and said he was a very nice man and huge!

After working for several years setting up mortgages by ARCS Mortgage owned by Bank of New York she was offered a position with BNY Mortgage.  Rose said she had to “Grab the Brass Ring” and go for it! It was a great decision!

It has been a benefit to her, also, in the work she does taking photos of house being built …In Progress at Brunswick Plantation. Rose puts the photos into a CD that is shared with the homeowner so they can see the building as it is happening. This CD of photos came about in a very natural way when her now neighbors, Rick and Sue Clausi, were having their house built and asked Rose to take photos for them. That went so well that now there is a CD with the stages of building for folks who build at Brunswick Plantation. Experience in Real Estate and talent in Photography paved the way for her work today!

 Living at Brunswick Plantation

Rose and Bob first came to this area of Coastal North Carolina in the 70’s to visit Rose’s sister who lives in Windjammer Village. Brunswick Plantation was the first place they looked and came back to after looking around! They liked the Landscaping and the whole appearance of Brunswick Plantation!  Even though the Plantation House was not yet built, they liked Mason Anderson’s Vision and that there was an In-House Builder!  There was security behind that important fact! They were impressed with the fact that owners lived here and it was gated. Bob said that Mason’s yearly Barbeque at that time also made them feel At Home!

Go Fly a Kite…It’s Fun!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOf Course, the location close to the beaches and Brunswick Plantation golf course were attractive features! Bob flew student kites in competition as a hobby and this was a good area for that. Kligs Kites is now at Broadway at the Beach. There are three levels of competition in Stunt Kite Flying…Novice, Intermediate, and Masters. Precision Flying has specific goals like Ballet and Flying Kites to Music. Kitewildwoods-by-esbepaThe biggest Kite competition is in Wildwood, New Jersey!  Cobra Kites in Toms River, New Jersey @ www.cobrakite.com is a good place to see & purchase stunt kites. England is known to make Flexi-Foil Kites.

Kite CollagePicMonkey CollageThere are so many fascinating things to know about Kite Flying! It is a world-wide experience that requires skill and talent! Kite Festivals are Fun and Exciting! The International Competitions are in a different city every year! Some kites are custom made and Bob had some of those created for him! Bob and Rose used to go to California for competitions in the desert and spent a couple of nights in Las Vegas!  In Traction Kiting, one launches from a three wheel buggy and kites can pull you at about 55 miles an hour! Bob did this kite flying for about 4 or 5 years in the 90’s…Flying High & Fast!

Pottery…Created by Rose!

Rose PotteryRose has been enjoying making pottery for the last 8 years. She took lessons when she saw an advertisement at Sunset Beach Marketplace with teacher, Jane Truesdale. She loves it and it satisfies her creative Talent! She had previously done ceramics and enjoyed that, also. Rose shared photos of some of her pottery creations! Lovely!

 

 Brunswick Plantation Favorite

There are a variety of activities Rose and Bob enjoy…Several with their friends at Brunswick Plantation! Brunswick Plantation is known for the Friendliness of Folks who live in this comfortable community. There is much to choose from…At your leisure! Rose and Bob enjoy special Saturday nights with a group of friends and neighbors. They meet at the Host House for the evening.  They choose a restaurant to go to and just enjoy having a good time together!

Our Lady of the Star is the church Rose and Bob attend in N. Myrtle Beach. So, they have friends and activities there, also. Other things they enjoy are going to the movies at Coastal Grand and shopping! Rose says Bob likes shopping with her at Belks…Sounds like a good plan for another Fun day!

Energy Star Rule Your Attic- shared by Brunswick Plantation Living

Energy Saving SolutionsThe Construction Group by Caw Caw Land Corp, at Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort, a coastal Carolina gated community, has been a proud Energy Star partner since 2010 . We want to help people save energy at home, period.

If you are considering purchasing a new home, an Energy Star certified home is the best choice for your family, the environment, and your wallet.  If you are interested in saving energy on the home you living in now….read on.

By Doug Anderson

Homeowners throughout the U.S. are starting to wake up to frost on the grass and furnaces or boilers running full blast. Cold weather is here! Now is the time to do a quick, simple check of your attic insulation levels to save money on energy bills and be more comfortable this winter. We call checking your attic insulation level: RULE YOUR ATTIC!

Don’t waste your hard earned money, just check your insulation level today to know if you have a problem or not. It only takes a few minutes. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Grab a tape measure or ruler and a flashlight. (You can also bring your cell phone)
  2. Carefully climb up your attic stairs or ladder and raise the attic hatch or door.
  3. Reach out and stick the ruler into the insulation and measure the depth in inches. Jot down the number or take a picture with your cell phone to record the number.

Now, check your results. For commonly used blown (loose-fill) fiberglass, mineral wool or cellulose insulation (assuming an R-value of about R-3 per inch):

  1. If you live in a Northern State and have less than 16-18 inches of insulation you are below the recommended levels.
  2. If you live in a Southern State and have less than 12-14 inches of insulation you are below the recommended levels.

In the map above, zones 4-8 are considered Northern, zones 2-3 are Southern.

Now, if your levels are good, relax and have a cup of hot cider. If you are below the recommended levels, don’t sweat it. It’s not too late to make an improvement and lower your annual energy bills by up to 10% by sealing air leaks and adding insulation to your home.

From now through November 26, post a picture or short video of your attic floor insulation using the hashtag #RuleYourAttic and include @ENERGYSTAR in your post. ENERGY STAR experts will then provide feedback on how to improve your attic insulation. For more information visit www.energystar.gov/ruleyourattic. To learn how to measure your attic insulation level watch our short video. If you haven’t already followed us, check out the ENERGY STAR Twitter page.

Now, the next question is: should you do it yourself or hire a contractor? We have helpful information whatever you decide to do.

About the Author: Doug Anderson is an ENERGY STAR Project Manager and has been with EPA for 14 years. He works on issues related to the home envelope, including sealing and insulation products and energy-efficient residential windows.

Read on to find out what is on sale and what you should hold off on a little longer to purchase.

Deals this Month…

candyCandy. Big sales on candy this month as sellers will discount heavily all the Halloween candy that didn’t see to clear shelf space for Christmas goodies.  Find price drops up to 75%!

 

 

 

Computers. Looking for the best deal of the year on a computer…then buy it on Black Friday.  2014 deals are likely to be on 13 inch laptops, which are expected to have up to 50% price drops.  If your an Apple person, try retailers like Amazon for prices marked down up to 20%.

 

 

kitchen-cookware

 

 

Cookware. With price drops of up to 70% this month, you won’t find lower prices anytime during the year.  So get those pots and pans now.

 

 

 

 

winter-apparel-16963787Fall apparel. Fall clothes are already on sale, but keep an eye out for online coupon codes before Black Friday.  There are many sites offering these codes so do a few searches for the best ones.

 

 

turkey

 

Frozen turkeys. Some markets will be selling heavily discounted frozen turkeys.  While others will be offering free ones as part of customer loyalty programs.  Check your stores to see and keep those receipts.

 

 

tv

 

Televisions. TV’s are popular advertising tools to get customers in the store.  Looks for 42″ HDTVs as low as $180 this year!  Want a bigger TV…60″ models are expected to be as low as $420!  But expect the deals to be on the entry level models and supplies to be limited. For bigger savings wait until the Super Bowl Sales happen in January.

Toys

 

Toys. Usually, the biggest discounts on toys are in December.  However, it is expected that this year big deals will happen near Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Look of price drops up to 85% on Amazon and at Walmart.

 

wedding dresses

 

 

 

Wedding dresses. Did you know December is the most popular month to get engaged?  Bridal stores do and so they stock up on new dresses in the Fall.  Find discounts up to 75% on last years dresses.

Don’t Buy Just Yet…

Holiday-Decorating

 

 

 

 

Holiday decorations. If you have all you need for this year’s decorations, then wait until after Christmas to buy any new stuff.  Prices will drop up to 50% after December 25th on all Holiday decor.

 

 

 

jewelry

Jewelry. No deals will be around until March for Jewelry.  It is such a popular item for Christmas gifts and then for Valentines day, sellers have no incentive to mark it down.

 

 

winter apparel

 

 

 

Winter apparel. If you’re looking for deals on this gear you’ll have to wait until January.  New merchandise is just being rolled out and pricing is full retail now.

 

 

 

 

We hope you found these tips to be helpful.  At Brunswick Plantation & Golf Resort we really believe SmartSpending is part of A Better Way of Life.  Interested in learning more about A Better Way of Life at Brunswick?  CLICK HERE
