ISLAND HAPPENINGS
  Quarterboards

Quarterboards are the carved and decoratively painted wooden signs that adorn houses. They are on an estimated 3000 Nantucket island houses. The history of quaterboards varies depending on who you ask. Some say the tradition started with Nineteenth-century sailing ships. Legend says when a ship's Captain retired and went ashore he’d acquire the quarterboard and place it on his house for all to admire. Others say that Quarterboards just washed up on Nantucket island shores and people decided to put them on their houses. However they came to be, they are another charming part of unique Nantucket.

RENTAL BUZZ
  Update Us!

The 2010 Nantucket Island rental season was our 32nd rental year and most successful to date. We are pleased to announce that we had increased bookings by about 10% over 2009 numbers. We are already booking many 2011 rentals, and are calling on all Owners to inform us of their 2011 rates and availability. New for this year is an on-line form that will hopefully streamline this process even more. To access the on-line update, please go to www.jpfco.com and click on the "renters" tab. On the bottom left under "Homeowners" is a link to Update listing. It is our hope that Owner's will go on-line both initially, and throughout the year to keep us updated on their property information. Of course, we can also be informed via email (office@jpfco.com) or phone call (508-228-3202). We look forward to hearing from you whichever way is most convenient, and we are looking forward to a successful 2011 rental season.

NOTES FROM PEPPER THE ELDER
  Ol' Snoot

Water. Water. Everywhere. I don't think so, at least not potable water. I was reminded of this when I was in Bermuda last week. Now Bermuda is surely a magical place, but they depend on catch basins for water, and as sure as my name is Boris Karloff, it can really taste nasty. I mean stuff that would cause even Mr. Ed. to turn up the ol' snoot. So what? I'll tell you what. One more reason to buy Nantucket. It has the best, the absolutely best tasting water I've ever encountered. And make no mistake about it, water is going to be a big, a very big deal. Out of curiosity, I tested it for purity. Nantucket water contains three parts of impurity for every million. A staggering small amount. As I said. One more reason.
