REAL ESTATE
April 8, 1990
As an escrow officer who has handled transactions of residential real estate without benefit of a realtor to represent the buyer and seller, I feel compelled to respond to the letter by Russell T. Connors. It is true that an individual can handle the sale of his home without the assistance of a realtor. However, unless the parties are experienced in real property transactions, the average homeowner or home buyer is not aware of the many regulations and disclosures which by law must be complied with, negotiating new loans and the requirements of lenders in today's market, and the protective provisions and guidelines as contained in a real estate broker's deposit receipt.

Ted Labuza ate sour cream on Tuesday that was two weeks past its due date. And lived to tell the tale. Dana Gunders went to the market and found fat-free milk in quarts that had no date label; the half-gallon had a “sell-by” date, and another container from a different brand had a “best-by” date. Even though nearly all consumers make some decisions about what to throw away based on those stamped dates, they cannot rely on them, said Gunders, food and agriculture staff scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Question: I am a widow and I would like to know if it is advisable to add my two adult children to my house deed. One is single, the other married. Answer: When you add someone to your home deed as a joint tenant, you're making a gift. And that can cause tax and legal problems. Many people like the idea of joint tenancy because holding title to property that way avoids probate, the court process that follows death.

Most of the businesses in this Queens neighborhood are owned by Korean Americans. The bakeries, phone stores, groceries and boutiques don't even bother with English on their awnings on Main Street. A few shops in recent years have turned over to Chinese owners, but the Greeks, Germans, Italians, Jews and Irish who once ruled here are all gone. Except for Tony Sala of TJ's Pizzeria & Restaurant.

This is more than just the story of how newspaper tycoon Rupert Murdoch, renowned historian Hugh Trevor-Roper and the editors of one of West Germany's leading magazines, Stern, were taken in by a crude forgery, by humdrum chronicles written on postwar paper by a petty crook and passed off as the diaries of Adolf Hitler. It is also a depressing but fascinating account of how the traffic in Hitler and Nazi memorabilia has become big business in both the United States and Europe.

Whether it's a luxury automobile, a couture gown or a special vintage of wine, even those who aren't collectors and connoisseurs recognize that perceived rarity and quality drive up demand. And price. But would you be willing to pay a premium price — say five times as much — for yarn? What if it was a luxurious, lustrous fiber, hand-sheared, -washed, -dyed and -spun from an award-winning sheep — all by the same woman — less than 100 miles southeast of Los Angeles? You might not, but fiber enthusiasts will.

If it were a movie, it might be called "Hollywood Parallel Universe." This nail-biting thriller would center on a group of harried movie executives scrambling to push pictures out the door while their studio teeters on bankruptcy and is sold to the highest bidder. The final chapter in Hollywood's longest-playing corporate drama, the saga of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, could soon be written. Movie chief Mary Parent and her team are scrambling to finish and shape the marketing campaigns for what could be the last four movies from the independent studio to bear the famous roaring lion logo.

It takes a certain eye to look at the slither of snails crawling over one another and see them as a bevy of escargots bubbling in garlic butter, never mind a means for the poor to feed their children. Yet a group of South Africans in a poor Western Cape township are surviving on snails: All day at the Moreson Farm apple orchard near the town of Vyeboom, the women crawl under apple trees collecting thousands of snails, which will be dispatched live for European tables.
