November brings us the most American of holidays – Thanksgiving. Although the best Thanksgiving movies aren’t as well known as the best Christmas movies, they are still definitely worth watching.  

HANNAH AND HER SISTERS (1986)

Woody Allen used the annual holiday meal—and Mia Farrow’s actual Central Park West apartment—as a repeated motif in one of his most sophisticated romantic comedies. Suffused with urbane chat and book-lined coziness, these scenes provide instant nostalgia for a generation of New Yorkers.

Year-over-year average price increases are softening.

Wood Siding

For many years, wood siding was the standard siding product found on homes and other buildings. It is attractive and long-lasting, and it's natural, so many homeowners still turn to wood as their siding of choice. Unfortunately, wood siding requires regular maintenance or it will not last. Many homeowners will paint their wood siding every 10 years or stain their
