Rental World Cup

The world cup is upon us, drawing people from all across the globe to circle around the closest television set and sit in soccer-induced trances for hours at a time, every once in a while letting out a cry of either elation or outrage.

Park It

Hey there all you renters, landlords, property owners and managers. As it gets generally colder and wetter across the nation, unless you’re one of the tenacious few who refuses to stop biking no matter what, you’re probably going to be driving more. Even if you live somewhere where the climate mostly stays the same, you still probably drive a lot. So listen up to the Hometown Rant’s guide to parkin’ your whip.

Halloween

We’re approaching the end of October and with it comes everyone’s favorite costume, prank and candy-centric holiday: Halloween. This year, Halloween falls on a Friday, so you can be sure it’ll be extra crazy, but luckily the Hometown Rant has you covered when it comes to all the tricks and treats.

The Winter is Coming

We’re already well into October, and it’s starting to show. The weather outside is changing, and the inconvenient truth is that there are measures you’re going to have to take if you want your House, Apartment, Condo or Duplex to stay warm and cozy even as the global climate goes totally haywire, creating a worldwide superstorm that plunges us into the next ice age. Okay, maybe not if Dennis Quaid has anything to say about it, but still, it’s getting colder.
