I'm hoping to drive my old beater into the ground before we need to get another car, but I'm on the lookout. What's your next car going to be?
My wife and I drive a perfectly good 2002 Nissan Sentra with 127,318 miles on it. "Stella" has four wheels and gets us from Point A to Point B. We've reached the stage in the life of the car where we don't repair body damage (as you can tell from the accompanying photo). I'm ashamed for my Dad to see it. But hey, it's paid for. Even though I'd love to get 200K miles out of Stella, she has some mechanical problems, like a seized bolt that has left the transmission fluid unchangeable for about eight years. She could conk out any old day. So we've been on the lookout for our next car. I'm paying attention to car commercials, asking friends about their cars. You know the feeling. We're looking for something that gets good gas mileage, and is …

Norwood realtor Patty McNulty said she is optimistic the trend will continue.
Norwood realtor Patty McNulty, owner and broker of McNulty Realtors said she is seeing a current trend in the real estate market that she feels is good news. According to McNulty, the market is flush with buyers to the point where there are not enough houses for sale in Norwood to meet the demand. As a result, many homes are receiving multiple bidders. “We are finding that inventory is not on the market for long and there’s usually multiple bidders on it,” McNulty said. “There’s been a trend lately of over-asking offers and we haven’t had that in a number of years.” “I think it’s a good thing. I think it shows that the economy is bouncing back. I think that the level of buyer is much more capable so it will avoid the problem that we had …

Olivadi will be opening their outdoor patio this week and will be coming out with a new spring menu in June.
We spoke with Olivadi General Manager Peter McDonough recently about what the must-have dishes are at the restaurant. Olivadi on Guild Street in Norwood is open for lunch and dinner and features a separate bar menu. They recently changed their drink menu and will be putting out a spring menu at the beginning of June. Their patio is opening this week as well.
