HOME FIT FOR A FUTURE KING
We surveyed our Fine Property Collection to find the “True Home Fit for a Future King” and we agreed our magnificent stone 17-room waterfront estate on 3.7 acres of gardens and sweeping lawns in Darien, Connecticut is ideal! Do you agree? See more here.
While you are at it, watch a full neighborhood tour of Darien, CT here.

If the Future King decides to move to Darien, we’ll be happy to sign him up for his library card.

  5. Talking to kids about sensitive topics.

    We are sending all of our warm thoughts to the families, teachers, kids, and staff of Sandy Hook Elementary. Below are some resources our Children’s Library put together to help you talk to your kids about sensitive topics.

    Parents magazine provides information on how to reassure children and recognize signs of stress. This MSNBC article suggests topics to emphasize, when to have a conversation with a child, and gives tips from the National Mental Health Association. The American Psychological Association provides a brief list of suggestions, including “Talk to your children”, “Limit exposure to news coverage”, and “Know the warning signs.” The New York University Child Study Center thoroughly discusses how adults and kids can deal with the stress of a violent event, and their guidelines for talking to kids about violent events are also available.

Fred Benenson (Full Disclosure: He’s Thessaly La Force’s boyfriend) decided to graph data about the books appearing in My Ideal Bookshelf. How awesome is that? His data analysis reveals the longest book on a celebrity shelf, the top five most frequently appearing books, and the average publication year (among some other useless but fascinating facts).

I am obsessed with this data visualization. Also a fun fact about Fred: he’s from Connecticut.
