We will gift you a lifetime membership to this online service, a $299 value! You can learn more at www.homebinder.com. Our customers always come first. In our experience, good customer service is the key to a successful business, and this is a rare quality to find these days. We are a husband and wife team who enjoy putting our customers first and we truly care about relationships with our customers. Just click on our review box to the left or see our Google reviews! We strive to serve wholeheartedly and communication is our priority. We are here to brighten your day and give you the peace of mind that you are receiving honest and professional service. Following our inspection, we will do a walk-through with you which usually lasts one hour, depending on what we find and what kind of questions you may have. Even buyers from out of town will receive a walk-through over the phone. We find that this oral presentation is a great benefit in learning about the current issues within the home, as well as educate you regarding routine maintenance needed for the future. Please call for pricing which is based on square footage, location and age of the home. Our prices begin at $300. We offer discounts to customers who pay at the time of the inspection, and we also offer discounts to active and retired military, national guard, police, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, and those in paid ministry. If you are searching for a commercial property inspection, please contact us for a quote. Our services are unique. Home inspections are typically for the home selling and buying process because often a mortgage lender will require one. However, we perform home inspection services for various scenarios. Our services provide a unbiased view of the home, offering both problem and maintenance areas. Our services not only benefit the home buyer or the home seller, but even those homeowners whose warranties are about to expire and they need documentation of any repairs that are needed. We also offer home inspections for those who may have concerns about their home regarding routine maintenance. We believe if your teeth warrant a checkup and your car gets maintained, why not have your home examined? Unless home owners are maintaining their home on their own, they should have their home inspected every 2-3 years. It's a small price to pay now, instead of paying higher repair costs later. We also offer re-inspection services for a nominal fee when the seller completes any suggested repairs to the home and we add photographic and written documentation to the seller's original report, showing what repairs were made - a great feature if you plan on selling your home and providing a completed home inspection report for your potential buyers up front. We find that the pre-sale inspection gives buyers the feeling of honesty and moves the sale along much faster. Our software will amaze you. Your final home inspection report is available generally within 24-36 hours from your walk-through. You and/or your agent will be provided with a username and password to access your report online. Once at our website, simply log in on the left-hand side of the screen. HomeGauge provides highlighted sections as you move through the report and clickable links from the table of contents to view a certain section of interest; for example, when a real estate agent prefers to only read the general summary and desires to skip the photographic portion of the report. Another great feature is that you can print or forward the report from the same page. If you are a home seller and have a pre-sale inspection, we can make your report "public," and we provide you and your agent with a link to the report in which you can attach to your home sale listing online. This will create great advantage above the other homes out there on the market. Our reports are detailed. They are easy to interpret through photographic documentation, diagrams, summaries, and all the needed specifications of the home. Your report will be best viewed online, but you will have the option to print directly from the website. Once printed, our average report contains 50+ pages of pictures and documentation of any concerns we may find as well as positive attributes and preventative maintenance areas of the home. Because we are members of InterNACHI, we do inspect more items than what the South Dakota Real Estate Commission requires us to inspect. Please refer to our "Standards of Practice" link for more information. In order for our company to deem an item "repair or replace" within our reports, the deficiency must be a safety hazard, a structural issue, anything that will cause a structure issue if not corrected, or any item within the home that is considered non-functioning. Our inspections are thorough. We take our time to inspect, spending 1-2 hours per inspection on average and then an additional hour with you during our one-on-one walkthrough. We treat each home as if it were our own, leaving no trace or mess behind. On average, we take 200-300 photos for our documentation and use approximately 50-75 of them within the report. Therefore, we recommend that home owners make their homes as photogenic as possible for pre-sale inspections. Not only do we take pictures of the problem areas, but we provide photos of appliances and cover shots of areas such as the exterior, garage, kitchen, living room, dining room, bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. Our schedule is flexible. Schedule your home inspection by phone or e-mail. We provide our services typically Monday through Saturday. Our goal is to work around your schedule. Our education is continuous. We are members of InterNACHI and receive continued education, keeping up with new construction regulations and always increasing our knowledge about the home inspection industry. Our company is licensed and insured. We carry errors and omissions and also general liability insurance. Copies of our policies are available upon request. We are licensed with the State of South Dakota Real Estate Commission and we are governed by both theirs and InterNACHI's standards of practice.

play-video The Nottingham Ranch - Colorado's Premier Legacy Ranch A 30 square mile working cattle ranch approximately 55 miles to Vail and 34 miles to the Vail/Eagle Airport. The offering includes 19,010 +/- deeded acres; over 175 cubic feet per second (cfs) of very senior water rights; extraordinary elk and deer hunting; Bureau of Land management (BLM) and U.S. Forest Service grazing permits on over 24,000 acres. The property is located near Burns, Colorado and spans from Burns, bisected by the Colorado River from the west side of Castle Peak towards the Flat Tops Wilderness Area to the west and sprawls along both sides of Derby Mesa Loop and Sunnyside Road into Routt County.  The Flat Tops Wilderness Area is the third largest U.S. Wilderness Area in Colorado. It consists of 235,214 acres in Routt National Forest and in  White River National Forest stretching from Dotsero to Meeker, CO. It was designated a wilderness area in 1975. The ranch is a self-sustaining ranch inclusive of 1,200 pair of cattle and calves; over 24,000 acres of leases for grazing permits; 2,000 acres of flood irrigation plus 1,200 acres irrigated by pivot irrigation systems (which is rare in the mountains) and produces 3,500 tons of hay annually. The price includes livestock and equipment as well as seven residences and additional cabins. The land value is extraordinary as most of the ranch is surrounded by the National Forest, Flat Tops Wilderness or BLM property. One of the largest elk herds of Colorado is located in this area and a very successful private hunting outfitter has been based on the ranch for 23 years. This is a remarkable trophy property unlike any other in Colorado. The ranch is a part of Colorado’s rich history with hunting, fishing and ranching and so close to the ski resorts of Vail and Steamboat Springs. The Nottingham Ranch truly is Colorado’s premier legacy ranch. Nottingham Ranch - Interactive Map Nottingham Ranch - Video

Orpington Video and Film Makers | Amateur Film Makers since 1958 Based in Orpington, Kent, UK As you may have been saddened to learn, one of our longest serving members James Morton-Robertson passed away recently from Leukaemia. James Morton-Robertson – Memories from Jane Oliver Chairman of OVFM and personal friend of James. James Morton-Robertson was born on 11th August 1937 and was proud of his Scottish heritage. His broad Scottish accent never left him. As a young man, Jim studied to become a design draughtsman and was part of the production team for the electronic newscaster advertising boards like the one at Piccadilly Circus. Subsequently he set up his own computer software and consultancy business. This is where I first came across him. Some 20 years ago, whilst searching for a firm that could provide a computer with video editing software, I came across Amplix Services, Jim's business and went to see his edit suite set up. It was impressive. Soon I was parting with my well-earned cash. Jim built a high spec graphics computer capable storing and editing huge video files, loading all the software. He provided ongoing support, right to the end of his life, something that cannot be bought. He ran the 'Kemsing Video Club'. I began attending these meeting at his house with his wife Jennifer, Barbara Darby and other like-minded folk. We watched one another's films and discussed how they could be improved. Jim's feedback was blunt, to the point, even harsh at times, but it was honest and what I needed in order to learn and develop my filmmaking skills. James was an accomplished and skilful film maker who enjoyed a challenge. Using his technical 'know how', understanding of camera settings, editing tools and programs, he became an award winning film maker. At OVFM, he wrote articles in the club's 'Viewfinder' magazine, whether to provide training, review software or cinematic films. He took on the 'official' photographer role when asked to. His creative mind came up with all sorts of stories. Sometimes he was called upon as 'speaker' and I remember a session where he unpicked the famous 'shower scene' in Alfred Hitchcock's horror movie 'Psycho'; absolutely fascinating. As a prolific film maker he made films for almost every project evening, right up to our last meeting before lockdown. Having travelled the world extensively, he would treat us to his latest adventures. Australia, New Zealand, Oman, Kuwait, Jordan, Barbados, Sri Lanka, France, Spain, Germany, Ireland, the USA, not forgetting the wine route in South Africa. Another love of his was 'wine'; making it, tasting it and drinking it; he successfully ran the Otford Wine Club for years. With an interest of flying he joined the U3A Aviation section; spending time 'flying' his latest 'simulator' at home. Jim made films with me, Barbara Darby, Hugh Darrington, his first wife Jennifer and others. Jennifer sadly died in 2010. He particularly enjoyed making funny films with Hugh; often using animation and special effects. These fascinated him. 'The Open Road' in which a two 'slugs', narrated by Jim and Jennifer, set off on the open road one bank holiday, only to come to a grinding halt behind a 'snail' interpreted by him as a 'caravan'. What an imagination and what amazing animation skills! In 2015 he married Fran whom he had been friends with for many years. He was proud to be a Scotsman and wore the full Scottish regalia; 'Robertson' tartan, sporran and all' when he wed Fran. Now Fran would feature in his films, and 'Jim' became 'James' to me and a few others, but at OVFM he was still known as 'Jim'. He wasn't shy of acting in front of the camera. He had us in stitches when he donned his Lycra green suit in order to do a disappearing act. He stumbled both physically and in his speech when playing a drunkard in another film and Barbara Darby and I could hardly contain ourselves as we filmed James chasing an imaginary fly around the house trying to swat it with a rolled up newspaper for his film 'Obsession'. He had to have a gory ending, one that would prove he wasn't imagining the fly. He revealed a nasty squashed mess on the newspaper, generated with the use of 'special effects'. The credits included a note at the end of the film 'no fly was harmed in the making of the film'! His popular film 'Whitefella Dreaming' was beautifully narrated by his brother Brian, who having emigrated in Australia as a young man, had the perfect Australian accent to fit the bill. James made hundreds of films. We are privileged to have some of them in the archive. He entered film after film into competitions and with such a broad spectrum, managed to lift every trophy OVFM had on offer, all 12 of them. Very few of us will achieve this in our lifetime. James wasn't restricted to filmmaking; he joined the Otford Art Club and many of his paintings adorned the walls of his home. James taught me to persevere, to take on new challenges and to use gifts; art, storytelling, film making, whatever; to ensure our passion lives on to benefit future generations. This year, to keep up with the latest technology, he was learning DaVinci Resolve and Fusion, new editing programs that are too difficult for many of us to get to grips with. The film that meant the most to James was his award winning 'Hampden P1344'; the aircraft in which his father, James Morton-Robertson, the wireless operator, was shot down in World War II. James was only five at the time his father was killed. He dedicated many years to tracing one survivor, interviewing him, and to following the finding, recovery and restoration of that aircraft, now at the RAF Museum at Cosford. Barbeques, quizzes, garden parties, some with strawberries & cream, others with fish & chips, James accommodated them all in his garden; made even more beautiful by Fran's clever and colourful planting. Chatter, laughter, clanging of glasses is what I'll remember of these occasions, interrupted only by the sound of the Merlin engine of the Spitfire flying overhead, with James admiring it and waving as though it were flying over especially for him. Indeed he was a pilot, having completed his first solo flight in March 1959 in a De Havilland Chipmunk or 'Chippy' as they were known, whilst in the RAF in 1959, a career he didn't pursue. James was recently diagnosed with Leukaemia. He and Fran had hoped they'd get to enjoy at least another six months together. He had fibrosis of the lungs and sadly developed a chest infection. He slipped away peacefully at Pembury Hospital on 10th July 2020, just five weeks after his diagnosis and one month short of his 83rd birthday. James was given a wonderful send off, when Fran, unbeknown to others, had a recording played at the end of his service …… yes, the sound of the unmistakeable Merlin engine of the Spitfire, paying a fitting tribute to him. James leaves a huge void in the world of film making. We will miss him very much. PETER MITCHELL We also lost Peter Mitchell too, who passed away a few weeks ago in hospital. Peter MItchell by Jane Oliver Peter Ronald Michell, was born on 9th July 1936 and enjoyed a happy childhood in the Brockley/Catford area of London. Peter excelled in maths and on leaving school worked in an engineering factory. His two years National Service with the Royal Airforce was spent in the Far East and he had fond memories of this time. On returning to 'civi street' he got a job in the civil engineering department at Imperial College, initially working with concrete and later in administration, where he served on a number of committees and joined the college's Holland Club. He gave loyal service to Imperial College, whose focus, amongst other things, is in engineering, remaining there for the rest of his working life. Indeed it was here that he met his wife, Janet. Rumour has it that he wooed her over breakfast! They married at the end of August 1974. He and Janet travelled throughout Europe and also went to America, during their happy years of marriage. Janet would spend time focusing on her love of Bonsai, whilst Peter focused his attention on capturing photographic records of these holidays. Peter belonged to a number of clubs, including dining clubs, computer clubs, camera clubs and OVFM. His great love was photography. He always had his camera with him, taking photos, composing each shot to give the best image, developing them and exhibiting them, winning many awards for his work. At OVFM, whilst he did not produce films, he enjoyed watching those of other club members, joining in constructive feedback to filmmakers. He was a regular attendee, only missing evenings through holidays or illness. He introduced us to a speaker from his computer club, Andrew Bishop, a professional animator, who fascinated us with his wonderful mind boggling creations. We, at OVFM, will remember Peter as a quiet, calm and mild mannered gentleman who, over coffee, would share his love of the Japanese Bonsai garden he had created for and with his wife Janet, whom he adored. Peter was a Charlton Athletic fan, something he kept close to his chest, maybe having witnessed the banter and torment that rival supporters of Arsenal and Chelsea levelled at one another from time to time. In recent years Peter was living with the effects of bladder cancer for which he had undergone radiotherapy treatment. Peter had become increasingly weak and tired. He spent the last two weeks of his life in Darenth Valley Hospital. He had suffered a collapsed lung and sadly passed away on 8th June 2020, one month short of his 84th birthday. Peter will be sadly missed at the club and we offer his wife Janet our sincere condolences. OVFM sends out condolences to the family and friends of both Jim and Peter and if you have any memories or messages you wish to share about Jim and Peter, please reply to this post below. Thanks for reading.

Join the network of the European Schools. Begin your educational journey today. Enrol today European school of Bergen Our pupils in this 4-18 school are educated in a secure, happy, relaxed yet stimulating and challenging multilingual environment. The learning of languages taught by native speakers is at the core of our mission as we prepare pupils to be aware and responsible European citizens, following a broad European curriculum leading to the highly regarded European Baccalaureate. Most pupils leave the school with a high level of fluency in at least two languages, although it is more common for them to have good language skills in at least three to four languages by the time they finish in the secondary cycle, including competence in Dutch if they are non-Dutch speakers. Our pupils have the chance to participate in a wide range of educational, cultural and social activities in the school, the local community and in many events across Europe before they go on to study at a range of the top universities in Europe and North America. Much is done to preserve and promote the cultural identity of the pupils who come from more than forty different countries. A special feature of the system is the teaching of the human sciences (history and geography) in the second language, and this represents part of the original cultural vision of the European Schools. The sciences and Mathematics have an important role in the curriculum which reflects our close relationship with the Joint Research Centre in Petten. The school also puts emphasis on the creative arts; and music, art and drama are very much part of daily life in lessons, concerts and performances. Pupils participate in a wide range of sporting activities in the school and beyond. We use the latest developments in educational technology to develop ICT skills which prepare pupils for life beyond school, and some participate in distance learning lessons with teachers across the continent which gives our school an even more European flavour.

They may be Dutch children who grew up abroad, have one Dutch parent or they come from local Dutch families in the area. However an application for admission must be submitted to the Ministry of Education via the school. For Dutch pupils, the school is the equivalent of VWO. aHow well recognised is the European Baccalaureate and the ES curriculum?The EB and our curriculum are recognised throughout the European Union as equivalent to the national system, and this makes it easy for pupils to transfer in and out at any stage of their education. The EB is a well recognised qualification which leads to entry to top universities in Europe and around the world. The EB is monitored by the national inspectors for the European Schools. aWhat is the difference between the European Baccalaureate and the International Baccalaureate?The EB is a qualification unique to the European Schools and it offers the examinations in different languages. There are similarities with the IB, but the IB is much more focused around subjects taught in the English language. IB does not offer the same variety of mother tongue tuition or subjects taught in other EU languages. At ESB, we offer a complete curriculum in English, French and Dutch. The EB is monitored by the national inspectors for the European Schools, and so it is a genuine European Union qualification. aAre there places available, or are there waiting lists?There are places available in all sections and at all levels at our school in the Netherlands. We have a large building with many facilities. There are currently no waiting lists. If you are interested in providing your children with an international education, we encourage you to apply. aWhat are Category 1, 2 and 3 pupils?Category I: Pupils who have to be admitted to the European Schools because their parents work for a European Union institution. These pupils are exempt from school fees. Category II: Pupils covered by individual agreements or decisions, each entailing specific rights and obligations for the pupils concerned, particularly as regards school fees. Category III: Pupils who do not belong to categories I and II. These pupils are admitted to the European Schools in so far as places are available. The ordinary school fees, fixed by the Board of Governors, would be payable for these pupils. aWhat is the difference between a European School and an International School?In an international school, there is one working language, with other languages taught as foreign languages. In a European School like ours, the curriculum is delivered in different languages and it can meet the needs of children from many different backgrounds. ESB focuses on a truly international education, by offering a European experience and several languages.
