"Wordy" Wednesday And..."Giving New Meaning To The Term 'A Fixer-Upper' "

We couldn't help sharing this article from a recent New York Times. Archie Gottesman is the chairwoman of Animal Haven, a shelter for cats and dogs in New York City, and also happens to own an apartment building in the Lower East side of Manhattan called the Ludlow. So what do you get when you mix a pet activist with a landlord?
A requirement for all new tenants to have their pets spayed or neutered before they move in, and so far, she's had no complaints. Ms. Gottesmann said, "We just wanted to emphasize the pet overpopulation problem." We say, "Hooray for Ms. Gottesman"!

Read the full article here: www.nytimes.com/2011/01/25/nyregion/25appraisal.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=Christine%20Haughney/Giving%20New%20Meaning%20to%20the%20Term%20%22Fixer-Upper%22&st=cse

      Yep, we're both "fixed" in case you were wonderin'...

Thanks for calling that to our attention, Mr. Pip. We "fixed it" (no pun intended) so it's working now!
