Wonderful Winter X-Games: How do they Relate to the Winter Olympics

It’s cold outside, snow has been common this winter, and so you might be thinking Louisville could be an appropriate host city for the Winter X-games. Unlikely. This year’s winter X Games will be hosted on Aspen Colorado's Buttermilk Mountain from Jan. 25-28.

 

With the winter Olympics just a few weeks away all eyes will be watching the Olympic performers to see who is performing at their peak! No doubt eyes will be on Shaun White who just completed a perfect 100 score to win the U.S. Grand Prix halfpipe event and clinch a US Olympic team spot for Pyeongchang, South Korea.

 

The winter X Games is not always a 100% predictor of who will medal at the winter Olympics, but it certainly gives you a good indication of where the athletes are at, who to watch in South Korea, and yes who might medal at the winter Olympics.

 

The winter X-Games is hosted, produced, and televised by ESPN as a companion event to the Summer X-Games which usually runs in August. All the events at the winter X-Games are free. Only if you want to enter the live music concerts every night do you need to purchase tickets. So if you are anywhere near Aspen you might want to enjoy some awesome free winter sports!

 

If you’re not near Aspen you could open your living room window, let in some cold air, and watch it live from the comfort of your own living room. During commercial breaks you could research real estate Louisville and give Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty a call.

Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Academy Awards - What's The Difference?

With awards season well under way some of you might be wondering, “What is the difference between the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and the Academy Awards?” There are two basic differences. Who decides the winners and what is awarded?

Who Decides the Winners?

The Golden Globes are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. 93 members choose who will receive the prestigious golden globe.

The Screen Actors Guild awards are presented by (take a deep breath) the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, a union for actors, journalists, radio personalities and other media professionals. Nominations are made by a randomly selected 2500 people group from the union and winners are voted on by the entire union.

The Academy Awards are presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The winners are chosen by the Academy’s voting membership. Membership into the Academy can only be obtained by an invite from the current Academy membership.

What is Awarded?

The Golden Globes recognize excellence in both Film and Television, domestic and International. The golden globes generally award more singular awards such as best actor or actress, or best original score or television drama series.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards present awards for both Film and Prime Time Television. While these awards also award many singular awards they also award ensemble awards such as the Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture.

The Academy Awards are quite different from the other two awards ceremonies in that they only award prizes specifically for Film. The Academy Awards have their television equivalent in The Emmy’s and their musical equivalent in The Grammy’s.

As such these awards not only include awards for the “big name” type roles such as best actor or actress but also include awards for lesser known industry related categories such as best editing and best makeup and hair styling.

We hope this blog helps you understand the dazzle of the awards ceremonies, specifically the Screen Actors Guild Awards this Sunday, January 21, 2018 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM on TNT, TBS, and TruTV. But if you’d prefer to be dazzled by real estate Louisville you will want to call Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty or any of our other dedicated agents

Snow Safe Driver Tips

The snow continued to fall overnight making Louisville whiter and more magical in every way. Neighborhoods in real estate Louisville, which our team knows so well, look completely different. The bows of trees hold snow in a contrast of white on brown.

 

Front yards wear a blanket of white and many stairways are only visible by their rail sticking out of the snow. Deer prints can be seen alongside human tracks giving us insight into their nocturnal movements.

 

The roads however are cleared and wet forming pathways of shiny black cutting through the snowy landscape. It is these roads that cause so much anxiety during peak snowfall seasons. The snow and ice take familiar roads and transform them into surfaces we no longer understand.

 

So we thought it would be helpful to our customers, family, and friends to do some research and put together some snow safe driving tips.

Slow Everything Down

Like rain on the roadway, snow makes everything you do on the road slower. Stopping and turning take longer, so does your ability to see road obstacles. In fact, “hit the gas” should be completely removed from your vocabulary once snow hits the ground. Pushing the pedal down slowly avoids skidding and increases tire traction on road surfaces.

Open Everything Up

If stopping takes longer it follows that the distance required to bring your car to a stop will increase dramatically. This means you’ll need to start breaking much earlier than usual when you see a red stop sign, stop light, or break lights ahead. You should also more than double your following distance from other vehicles.

Don’t Stop When Going Up

Hills are undoubtedly trickier in the snow. It takes a lot more to get your car moving from a stop than it does if you’re just barely rolling forward. Add gravity pulling you down on a hill and you’re asking for trouble.

Ordinarily we step on our pedal in the middle of a hill. This won’t work in snowy conditions. Hitting the gas on a hill will cause your wheels to spin on a snow covered/icy road. You’ll want to instead increase your speed slightly before you get to the hill rather than on it.

The other safety option of course is just don’t leave the house! You could maybe work from home, watch a movie, or use our online helps such as our mortgage calculator and home value calculator or review our seller’s program or buyers program.

We also have several  helpful  blogs for those looking at the real estate Louisville market. Of course a lot of us have to go out in the cold and as such Scott Boehnlein and all at Family Realty hope these driving tips help. Keep safe in this winter weather.

Sledding Spots Louisville

It’s snowing in Louisville! Not sure if you noticed? As I type this blog I am watching fresh snow fall from the sky and cover Louisville in an ever deepening carpet of snow. The icy sky cotton has coated neighborhoods in real estate Louisville transforming them into winter wonderlands.

 

With the magical snow fall coinciding with Martin Luther King Jr. Day many families in Louisville are taking advantage of the day off school and celebrating by snow sledding. If you are wondering where you want to sled with your friends and family we did research for you. Louisvilleky.gov has announced six sites for public sledding*:

1. Cherokee Park (Baringer Hill, intersection of Alexander Rd and Scenic Loop)

Cherokee Park is situated in the Highlands but several other neighborhoods have entrances to the park: Cherokee Triangle, Bonnycastle, Highlands-Douglass, Crescent Hill and Seneca Gardens.

2. George Rogers Clark Park (1024 Thruston Ave, behind playground, near McKinley Ave)

George Rogers Clark Park is in the Audubon neighborhood and is bordered by Poplar Level Rd to the east.

3. Joe Creason Park (1297 Trevilian Way, behind Metro Parks administration building)

This park is right next door the Audubon and Camp Taylor neighborhoods in the Poplar Level neighborhood which is also home to Louisville Zoo.

4. McNeely Lake Park (6900 Cooper Chapel Road, near Korean War Memorial)

5. Tyler Park (1501 Castlewood Ave, on Tyler Park Dr side of park)

Tyler Park is situated in the Tyler Park neighborhood which is part of the Highlands and lies next to Deer Park and Germantown.

6. Charlie Vettiner Park (5550 Charlie Vettiner Park Rd, near Easum Rd entrance)

This park is situated on the south of Jeffersontown one of the more popular neighborhoods around Louisville.

I hope you have fun out in the snow today. Please make sure to be safe while your sledding, dress appropriately with layers, and be sure to have fun! If we see you out sledding the slopes please say hi. If not be sure to give Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty a call if you think we can be of assistance to you.  

*Please only sled these hills when the “Open” sign has been posted!
