Probably the nicest and best compliment that I have EVER received came recently
from Howard B. Richman, B.M. U.C.L.A., AND M.F.A. , CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE FOR THE ARTS
" Piano Teacher to the Stars in Hollywood... " Past, son in law to Ron Miller who wrote, " For Once in My Life, " covered by Stevie Wonder
, and "Touch me in the Morning.", covered by Diana Ross.
"I do know that most people based their value of a person on their training rather than on their evidence.
I've been teaching for 42 years. It is immediately evident that you have a gift of talent" ...he continues.. "in fact, to me it
is even MORE impressive that you can do what you do with such an instinctive approach, regarding your ability to read
and to play and to compose! So, I'm saying this because I don't want you to feel that you have to impress me-- as that
already happened!" -Howard B. Richman, Piano Teacher to the Stars in Hollywood.

"I am deeply saddened, physically and emotionally devastated by this horrible situation, from severe injuries recently sustained, but I must follow my
Physician's advice and not play the PIANO to give my right hand, and back the best chance for complete or partial recovery.
At this time, I am dealing with severe cramping of my fingers, r. thumb and right hand, coupled with wrist and joint pain, and terrible lower and upper
back pain that is keeping me from continuing with my Piano plans and career in the Piano Teaching field. I can only hope, that this
satisfactorily resolves itself with good medical attention, therapy, and months of rest. I am deeply concerned about my lower back

|The President's ( GREGG's) NEW , 2016 PATHFINDER WITH automatic 4 X 4 TECHNOLOGY AND
A 5,000 LB TOWING CAPACITY. The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has 24 more H.P. bringing it to 284 H.P.
Many Upgrades and a better front end than my 2016 shown below. ALL in all, I am very pleased with the
Pathfinder and I might, even UPGRADE to the 2017, which is a bit insane, but I will pick up a lot of
new goodies, like the panoramic sunroofs, another 1K in towing capacity=6000 LBS, automatic rear lift
gate , 24 more HP., getting close to 300 H.P., which used to mean...60's MUSCLE CAR power and it is
noticed. So, as I make that decision to go to FULL LEATHER and a 13 speaker top of the line BOSE
....enjoy the view of the 2016 that is one superb vehicle. 19 inch wheels, and an air mattress for the back
and daddy is realy to FLLLLYYYYYY! Bye for now. With the tinted glass look , you feel like you
are working for the SECRET SERVICE. That works for me.
|Val's Nissan ALTIMA SV is loaded with all the goodies and the electric moonroof and so much more.
I am now considering upgrading her vehicle to the 2017 which is now offering zero percent finiancing for up to 72 montns, which is a great program.
As for us, we have had...what...15 NISSANS Now over the years? We have enjoyed every, single one of them so to choose another NISSAN, truly iis a
NO BRAINER. Besides, when we show up at the dealership, the deal is always accepted and finished off in an hour.

and sought after, LAKE ASHFORD. His lots reside
between a $750,000 VILLA and a newer , One Million
Dollar Contemporary home. His lots would hold the
HIGHEST ELEVATED CHATEAU that is lake front on all
of LAKE ASHFORD due to the elevation of his property.
|LAKE ASHFORD - such a deal !
Mr. Moffatt has many options in retirement... 1. he can live in S. Windsor in his
current home, paid off. 2. Rent his current home and build on Lake Ashford. 3. sell
his current home and this land above...and buy another home already BUILT on
Lake Ashford or somewhere else. 4 keep the land as an investment ...move to NEW
HAMPSHIRE or FLORIDA.....and so many OTHER OPTIONS.... or live in BOCA!
We are well positioned, keeping good health of course, to have a nice retirement
and income due to good planning. Ths was a small piece of the planning. - GEM
|When I found this land for sale, it had an EASEMENT OF RECORD, alowing the future advance of the road in place, to be extended across the top of the land, right through
where you would put a potential home. I took a big chance, but I felt the easement could be removed in the future, greatly enhancing the value of the property. I also felt, that if
it couldn't be removed, that at this price, 59K, with special OWNER FINANCING, I would have a nice place to go fishing, and would have the use of TWO, DEEDED SWIMMING
BEACHES, in the opposite direction of everyone else in deep traffic heading to the CT SHORELINE. My risk was low...my REWARD COULD BE HUGE. The area was superb and the
properties next to it...awesome! I got the financing, and then the owner of record ended up working with the President of the Assoc, and the other members that had a legal
interest in the EASEMENT to SIGN OFF on it. Probably about 15 people. Once this was done....the reward, I believe became a great investment opportunity. The ability to see
what other's couldn't see....a steep lot with an easement for me was...a future view of the entire lake and no easement of record with a possible chalet some day, on the highest
point by any home, that was LAKE FRONT on this lake. My past real estates sales experience and financing abilities made all of this possible. I am sure that decades of sales
experience as a Real Estate Agent, Sales Manager of a Realty World Firm, and as a BROKER of my own Ct. Real Estate Firm...set me up for success....along with the help of many
other good people!Gregg E. Moffatt, G.R.I, C.R.E.A. former owner of Moffatt and Moffatt Realtors.

|Mr. Moffatt's LAKE FRONT LOTS were purchased in the
exclusive VILLA's area in Eastford on LAKE ASHFORD. His
LAKE FRONT lots came with deeded rights to TWO, PRIVATE
beaches for Lake Assoc members only. When built, his home
will be the HIGHEST ELEVATED HOME, direct waterfront on

Lake is a man made lake that is pristine and very clear, due to
the fact it is fed by an underground spring that runs the length
of it at its center. Good fishing too!

ON THE FACTS BELOW...
THIS is GEMCOM CORPORATE. -->>
This is a wonderful Victorian Colonial with a
two car garage on a cul de sac with
sidewalks and underground utilities. It
features TWO LARGE bedrooms, 2 1/2
Baths-one of which that features a JACUZZI
tub and a double sink vanity, Large Country
Kitchen with wrap around counters, 2
fridge, 2 gas ranges with topside grills, 2
dishwashers built in, two built in
microwaves, Large Dining room with French
doors to an exterior deck in the rear of the
home facing thousands of acres of ponds,
streams, woods, woodland creatures...a
couple of minutes from Buckland Hills Mall
and Evergreen Walk. Add a large living room
with a wood fireplace in light Oak with a
marble surround, front porch that is
covered, a first floor laundry off the
kitchen...after arriving in the foyer...and you
know, that you are Home.
There are bigger and, I guess, better homes,
but not with this charm. Each of the two
people that each owned this home before I
did, complained that they wish they could
have taken this home with them when they
had to move. The plans for this home
are original and work on so many levels. It is
a simple layout and you would have thought
that many builders would have copied it...
but, they didn't.
I have added electric fireplaces to most
rooms....and done some upgrades...the
applianced kitchen....but, for the most
part....my duty has been just to enjoy
this Home....and I have. ----GEM
