Holly and I walk our neighborhood twice a day... sometimes we see wonderful and happy events other times we are sad what we see. Well you tell me with these photos....I am sure our friends Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  would feel the same way as Holly and I did. Love to hear their input. Now this one was heart wrenching for me to see not alone to post...WHY? I just want to go knock on their door and ask WHY??? The trees must have been there 50 years or longer. The shade they provided was keeping Global Warming in check.... I hope it is not because of SB9 & SB10.... Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

 Many people all over the Globe are not familiar with ‘Columbus Day’. Reason being, it is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492, and Columbus Day 2021 occurs on Monday, October 11. So, someone who came to the United States from a Communist Hungary, I always loved celebrating Columbus Day. After all, it is the holiday honoring Columbus’ achievements  coming from Europe to the United States.Many people are not aware that Columbus Day was unofficially celebrated in several cities and states as early as the 18th century but did not become a federal holiday until 1937.So with this historical Trivia wishing you a Happy Columbus Day! Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments. If you are looking for a knowledge...

Gift from a friend... not all gifts are created equal:)))) Diane received a gift from a friend of hers. It was her birthday and needless to say the friend heard that Diane and another friend put together a puzzle one afternoon in our back yard.Keep in mind Diane told the story about the 300 peace puzzle and how challenging it was. Needless to say the present she received was a 1000 peace puzzle.Her local friend is traveling so she could not help. Look who decided to help her. Looks like a great team effort. Stay tuned for further updates:)))Now in all fairness Diane is so competitive that I am sure in spite of the challenges she will put it together in no time.  Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Shake and Bake, OK it is not a recipe from the Gourmet Realtor in Los Angeles…rather it is about another earthquake in Los Angeles!!!Last night, we were having dinner at home and low and behold there was a Shaker… It got the attention not only of me and Diane, but two out of the four of our animals. The time was around 7:58 pm, in case you are wondering, this is usually when we are in the beginning or middle of our evening meal, depending on how the animal feeding goes.This was a good one, ten miles from our home in Carson, CA the Google App reported that it was a 4.7 shaker. I said to Diane, don’t worry, they usually downgrade it after a few hours. Sure, enough it was downgraded to a 4.5 shaker.Gratefully we were far enough away that all it did was make my  CD player shake and skip and...

I am sure you have heard some people complaining by the water cooler that "some people are always lucky..... I always laughed and smiled when I heard these discussions. My take is I have always been lucky in my life. How lucky am I for being one of those people.   "...Before anything else, preparation is the key to success..."  Alexander Graham Bell... Now just to be clear, I have always believed, that luck is the residue of hard work, preparation and the right mindset. So with that said here is some preparation for our late afternoon early evening dinner.First the appetizer needed to be purchased, then properly prepared for the hidden flavors...Then it had to be served to be most attractive to the guest receiving the appetizer. Needless to say that has been my attitude about anything I...

Having just celebrated Labor Day weekend, I again reflected on how the pandemic has reshaped the way we live and how we now use our home versus 19 months ago. The Some of us have been working from our home when it was not a necessity, now for many, a home office is a must-have not just a luxury. I have watched how our perspective has changed about our home since the pandemic shutdown.There are many reasons to buy a home. In my perspective there are two great reasons one is for health the other is for long term financial gain.Initially we had to work out privacy issues, since I was not the only one working from home. Lucky for us we do not have school aged children to add to the mix. The inundation of Zoom calls has changed our views as well. Neither one of us wants to hear the other per...

Well just to be clear a night or two ago I saw my neighbor across the street  put out two big bags and they were Yellow and had written on it YellowSack... I did not think much about it. I saw him load dirt into it... later in the evening I saw a potential scavenger stop and look what was in the bags and drove off disappointed....Now with that said the following morning I saw this huge truck with YellowSack painted all over it and a big crane loaded the bags in the truck.Fast forward a few days later, I ran into my neighbor and told him the scavenger story.... well he shared with me that his wife wanted to put Astroturf in their back yard and he needed to get rid of all the excess dirt. He explained how easy and convenient it was to get these guys out. At the same time how inexpensive t...

What is on our bookshelf? Great question...Thanks for the inspiration from our friend Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist  to participate in this Active Rain Challenge. Had I not participated, I would have been remiss.Those of you who read my blog posts and comments on Active Rain and my other World Wide Web platforms know that I am a book collector (former reader) who happens to also love good food and good wines. Having had less and less time to read books over the years I re-classified myself now as a book collector rather than a reader. This of course is due to the fact that real estate has kept me very active and very busy making my true reading time a virtual impossibility. I am very grateful for this problem, and I’m sure you get the idea how real estate can be a huge di...
