The Cintron Container House is located only 400 meters off the coastal highway, giving you easy access to beautiful Southern Costa Rica. Featuring a 180-degree ocean view, this 2-story container home is all the rage. It features desirable amenities, including year-round sunsets, lush trees, a completely fenced in yard, and stunning views of the local whale tail. This three-bedroom, two-bath home would make the perfect family home or vacation rental for you.
Recently, container homes have become more popular since they are eco-friendly, sturdy, and safe. This three-bedroom container house consists of four high-cubed containers, two on each side of the house. Each 40-foot shipper container is 40 ‘long, 8 ‘wide, and 9’6” high. They are constructed out of secure steel, and the outside is done with solid cement construction.
This house is light and open with modern touches. The entire house is done in white, and those homeowners wanting a white kitchen will love this house. The kitchen features white cabinets, a white Kitchen Island, and white barstools. It also includes stainless steel appliances, a wooden dining table, and seating for eight. Some colorful artwork on the walls brightens it up. The kitchen flows right into the living room. It features an off-white sectional and two off-white ergonomic chairs. The living area also includes a glass coffee table that uses tree stumps as the base. In fact, you’ll see several tree stumps as décor throughout the room. The living area leads out to the cement patio and the pool area. Both of these areas need some work but you’ll be able to add your own charm to it.
This home needs some work to be finished. The original homeowner had some great visions but ran out of money. The guest bathroom needs some work, and the pool still needs tile laid. It’s the ideal home for you to put own personal touches on it by finishing both the exterior and the interior.
The home is situated on .64 acres and a public road. It can easily be sold as-is, or there is ample room to build an additional home, which would work great for a rental property. Being only 400 meters from the coastal highway and five minutes from the center of Uvita gives you easy access to beaches, local restaurants, and the weekly farmer’s market.
The town of Uvita has everything you’ll want from everyday necessities to outdoor eco-adventures. Each Saturday, the Uvita Farmer’s Market is open from 8 am until noon. It’s conveniently located off the coastal highway, and it makes it easy to purchase organic produce, homemade bread, and natural bath products. Uvita features many restaurants and cafes serving local cuisines. If you are planning to move here full-time, Uvita also offers good schools that include 3 private schools, which offers a bilingual curriculum.
However, outdoor adventures are the main draw to live near Uvita. Where else could you see a whale’s tail? To get a closer look, you’ll need to visit Marino Ballena, National Park. At the tip of the tail, you’ll see tide pools and rock formations. Uvita is also known for its waterfalls, such as the Uvita waterfall with a natural waterslide and swimming holes. There are many more eco-adventures to explore here. Come see what Southern Costa Rica has to offer.
Palisades Amusement Park Fun House
For those of you who may remember: Palisades Amusement Park created their Showboat Fun House in 1964. Featured in the front facade was this Dixieland group of mechanical mannequins that performed along to a soundtrack of snappy jazz numbers. To date, I have found NO film footage of the band playing and very few detailed photos of the group itself. Thanks to Glenn Corbett for finding this great photo of the band. Through the magic of computer animation, I have tried to replicate the movements of the original band members. The music is from The Dukes of Dixieland on Audio Fidelity records. I hope you enjoy this nostalgic trip back to the glory days of Palisades Amusement Park.
The Great Gildersleeve: Gildy's New Flame / Marjorie's Babysitting Assignment / Congressman
Premiering on August 31, 1941, The Great Gildersleeve moved the title character from the McGees' Wistful Vista to Summerfield, where Gildersleeve now oversaw his late brother-in-law's estate and took on the rearing of his orphaned niece and nephew, Marjorie (originally played by Lurene Tuttle and followed by Louise Erickson and Mary Lee Robb) and Leroy Forester (Walter Tetley). The household also included a cook named Birdie. Curiously, while Gildersleeve had occasionally spoken of his (never-present) wife in some Fibber episodes, in his own series the character was a confirmed bachelor.
In a striking forerunner to such later television hits as Bachelor Father and Family Affair, both of which are centered on well-to-do uncles taking in their deceased siblings' children, Gildersleeve was a bachelor raising two children while, at first, administering a girdle manufacturing company (If you want a better corset, of course, it's a Gildersleeve) and then for the bulk of the show's run, serving as Summerfield's water commissioner, between time with the ladies and nights with the boys. The Great Gildersleeve may have been the first broadcast show to be centered on a single parent balancing child-rearing, work, and a social life, done with taste and genuine wit, often at the expense of Gildersleeve's now slightly understated pomposity.
Many of the original episodes were co-written by John Whedon, father of Tom Whedon (who wrote The Golden Girls), and grandfather of Deadwood scripter Zack Whedon and Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog).
The key to the show was Peary, whose booming voice and facility with moans, groans, laughs, shudders and inflection was as close to body language and facial suggestion as a voice could get. Peary was so effective, and Gildersleeve became so familiar a character, that he was referenced and satirized periodically in other comedies and in a few cartoons.
Our Miss Brooks: Exchanging Gifts / Halloween Party / Elephant Mascot / The Party Line
Our Miss Brooks is an American situation comedy starring Eve Arden as a sardonic high school English teacher. It began as a radio show broadcast from 1948 to 1957. When the show was adapted to television (1952--56), it became one of the medium's earliest hits. In 1956, the sitcom was adapted for big screen in the film of the same name.
Connie (Constance) Brooks (Eve Arden), an English teacher at fictional Madison High School.
Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon), blustery, gruff, crooked and unsympathetic Madison High principal, a near-constant pain to his faculty and students. (Conklin was played by Joseph Forte in the show's first episode; Gordon succeeded him for the rest of the series' run.) Occasionally Conklin would rig competitions at the school--such as that for prom queen--so that his daughter Harriet would win.
Walter Denton (Richard Crenna, billed at the time as Dick Crenna), a Madison High student, well-intentioned and clumsy, with a nasally high, cracking voice, often driving Miss Brooks (his self-professed favorite teacher) to school in a broken-down jalopy. Miss Brooks' references to her own usually-in-the-shop car became one of the show's running gags.
Philip Boynton (Jeff Chandler on radio, billed sometimes under his birth name Ira Grossel); Robert Rockwell on both radio and television), Madison High biology teacher, the shy and often clueless object of Miss Brooks' affections.
Margaret Davis (Jane Morgan), Miss Brooks' absentminded landlady, whose two trademarks are a cat named Minerva, and a penchant for whipping up exotic and often inedible breakfasts.
Harriet Conklin (Gloria McMillan), Madison High student and daughter of principal Conklin. A sometime love interest for Walter Denton, Harriet was honest and guileless with none of her father's malevolence and dishonesty.
Stretch (Fabian) Snodgrass (Leonard Smith), dull-witted Madison High athletic star and Walter's best friend.
Daisy Enright (Mary Jane Croft), Madison High English teacher, and a scheming professional and romantic rival to Miss Brooks.
Jacques Monet (Gerald Mohr), a French teacher.
Our Miss Brooks was a hit on radio from the outset; within eight months of its launch as a regular series, the show landed several honors, including four for Eve Arden, who won polls in four individual publications of the time. Arden had actually been the third choice to play the title role. Harry Ackerman, West Coast director of programming, wanted Shirley Booth for the part, but as he told historian Gerald Nachman many years later, he realized Booth was too focused on the underpaid downside of public school teaching at the time to have fun with the role.
Lucille Ball was believed to have been the next choice, but she was already committed to My Favorite Husband and didn't audition. Chairman Bill Paley, who was friendly with Arden, persuaded her to audition for the part. With a slightly rewritten audition script--Osgood Conklin, for example, was originally written as a school board president but was now written as the incoming new Madison principal--Arden agreed to give the newly-revamped show a try.
Produced by Larry Berns and written by director Al Lewis, Our Miss Brooks premiered on July 19, 1948. According to radio critic John Crosby, her lines were very feline in dialogue scenes with principal Conklin and would-be boyfriend Boynton, with sharp, witty comebacks. The interplay between the cast--blustery Conklin, nebbishy Denton, accommodating Harriet, absentminded Mrs. Davis, clueless Boynton, scheming Miss Enright--also received positive reviews.
Arden won a radio listeners' poll by Radio Mirror magazine as the top ranking comedienne of 1948-49, receiving her award at the end of an Our Miss Brooks broadcast that March. I'm certainly going to try in the coming months to merit the honor you've bestowed upon me, because I understand that if I win this two years in a row, I get to keep Mr. Boynton, she joked. But she was also a hit with the critics; a winter 1949 poll of newspaper and magazine radio editors taken by Motion Picture Daily named her the year's best radio comedienne.
For its entire radio life, the show was sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive-Peet, promoting Palmolive soap, Lustre Creme shampoo and Toni hair care products. The radio series continued until 1957, a year after its television life ended.
The Great Gildersleeve: Gildy Is In a Rut / Gildy Meets Leila's New Beau / Leroy Goes to a Party
Aiding and abetting the periodically frantic life in the Gildersleeve home was family cook and housekeeper Birdie Lee Coggins (Lillian Randolph). Although in the first season, under writer Levinson, Birdie was often portrayed as saliently less than bright, she slowly developed as the real brains and caretaker of the household under writers John Whedon, Sam Moore and Andy White. In many of the later episodes Gildersleeve has to acknowledge Birdie's commonsense approach to some of his predicaments. By the early 1950s, Birdie was heavily depended on by the rest of the family in fulfilling many of the functions of the household matriarch, whether it be giving sound advice to an adolescent Leroy or tending Marjorie's children.
By the late 1940s, Marjorie slowly matures to a young woman of marrying age. During the 9th season (September 1949-June 1950) Marjorie meets and marries (May 10) Walter Bronco Thompson (Richard Crenna), star football player at the local college. The event was popular enough that Look devoted five pages in its May 23, 1950 issue to the wedding. After living in the same household for a few years with their twin babies Ronnie and Linda, the newlyweds move next door to keep the expanding Gildersleeve clan close together.
Leroy, aged 10--11 during most of the 1940s, is the all-American boy who grudgingly practices his piano lessons, gets bad report cards, fights with his friends and cannot remember to not slam the door. Although he is loyal to his Uncle Mort, he is always the first to deflate his ego with a well-placed Ha!!! or What a character! Beginning in the Spring of 1949, he finds himself in junior high and is at last allowed to grow up, establishing relationships with the girls in the Bullard home across the street. From an awkward adolescent who hangs his head, kicks the ground and giggles whenever Brenda Knickerbocker comes near, he transforms himself overnight (November 28, 1951) into a more mature young man when Babs Winthrop (both girls played by Barbara Whiting) approaches him about studying together. From then on, he branches out with interests in driving, playing the drums and dreaming of a musical career.
