For those of you following the Southern California Wildfires, this map gives you a much more comprehensive view of how many fires are still burning.  The green flames represent fires that have been contained while the red represent ones that are still burning.  Click on any flame and it will tell you about the damage caused, estimated cost, loss of live, injuries, etc.  This was created by the LA Times and the State has made a similiar one but it isn't as comprehensive.  A great testament to the Reporters in our area who are covering these fires and unfortunately another testament in how unprepared and ill-equipped our State Government was in handling this situation.  As a side note, both Temecula and Murrieta school districts are closed today due to bad air quality.    www.latimes.com/...

 Schools closed in Capistrano Unified due to poor air quality from fires.Superintendent Carter has sent out a message to all parents who have children attending school in the Capistrano Unified School district.  All schools will be closed tomorrow due to deteriorating air quality conditions.  Specific schools that are threatened by the fires are in the cities of Rancho Santa Margarita, which is being affected by the Santiago Canyon fire and San Clemente, which is being affected by the fires on Camp Pendleton.I can personally tell you that today here in Laguna Niguel the air quality has indeed deteriorated with visible ash continuing to fall.  So this closure comes as no surprise.  Furthermore, Superintendent Carter also indicated that they may extend the closure through Friday.  For mor...

   Apparently there are a couple of scam artists in our area that operate under the following:Two people approach you in a parking lot and tell you they have found a wallet but that the local store owners don't want to be involved in getting back to the owner and don't know what to do.  After much discussion, it is agreed to open the wallet which contains several $100 bills and note saying that this is a cash payoff.  You suggest calling the local authorities but the scammers offer to contact their attorney which is located at bank. You accompany them to the bank and wait in the car while they go inside.  When they come out, they tell you their attorney says do what you like with the money which is supposed to be over $100,000 in cash.  So you agree to split the money but here is the ca...

Let’s face it, we all need some more time in our day. I personally could use another 4 hours! Here are a few tips and a guideline as to how you can apply some time management techniques to your everyday routines. These are great tips to share with your clients! :: Evaluate your organizing strengths and weaknesses. :: Can you find things when you need them? :: Do you spend 45 minutes looking for your keys? :: Take a minute and assess your home, office and lifestyle. Make a goal of what you would like to achieve. :: Be realistic with your goals. Think small at first. Start with a goal of better managing your time. When you become more efficient with your time then you feel less overwhelmed. Imagine more time with your spouse or kids and having your home, office organized and clean. By fol...

Ted's Place is practically an institution in Laguna Niguel, CA.  I started eating at Ted's about 13 years ago.  It was one of the places we frequently visited during the construction of our home in Laguna Niguel.  Ted's Place is many things to many people.  In addition to being known for giving great food at value prices (Ted's slogan, "Ted's Place for Gourmet Fast Food"), it's just a comfortable place to be.  You'll bump into neighbors and friends from all the surrounding cities.  It's also popular with families, students,  car collectors, sports teams, and the horse set of Nellie Gail.  One constant in this happy mix of satisfied diners is the place's namesake---Ted.  Ted is a big, tall Greek man with a quick smile and a twinkle in his eyes.  When Ted smiles, he smiles with his whole ...
