One of the reasons I love living in Ramona are all of the wonderful family-friendly community events.  In December, the festivities have the special warmth that only Christmastime can bring. December 5th:  This marks the 19th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting, and will be held at the Pavilion at the Ramona Outdoor Community Center located on Aqua Lane.  Santa Arrives at 5:15pm and the tree will be lit at 6pm. The Ramona Town Hall Band will play at 6:40pm with local children choirs singing carols throughout the evening. Please bring non-perishable food goods to benefit the Ramona Food and Clothes Closet. The Ramona Airport is hosting the annual Toys for Tots between 11am to 3pm at 2926 Montecito Road. If you miss that event, we will have a Toys for Tots box at the Tree Lighting.  Bring thos...

I get asked all of the time "How's real estate going for you?"  How do I answer that?  I've been licensed for precisely one year now and have yet to have a transaction get to closing.  Oh, I have buyers that I'm working with, but they're going FHA and, well, that's a whole other bag of worms. I simply smile, and remain thankful that I actually pull a small paycheck as the office manager.  I am also sure to thank the person who inquired about my business since they may become a client in the future.  I consider most of my contacts to be referral generators for me.  Not that I would love for them to be clients, they are simply in the same boat as me and my husband.  We LOVE where we live, and have no plans on moving any time soon. I am thankful that my colleague had the foresight to get u...

As my life continues to progress, I find myself adding more and more commitments of my time, talent, and treasure.  Well, one of the three at least.  Am I spreading myself too thin? Last night was my son's pack meeting for Cub Scouts.  He's just starting out as a Tiger Cub, and the parents acting as their Akelas, or adult guides, run the den as a group.  We're all learning as we go, and we are working on sharing the responsibility evenly between families.  However, and this is where I begin my dilemma, the den does need to have a Tiger Cub Den Leader.  Since the parent who we were encouraging to step up as Den Leader was absent from the pack meeting due to illness, I was conned convinced into taking the wheel.  I don't mind really, I just want to make sure I don't short-change the littl...

www.CoronadoBeach.com, click on Coronado Map. There are so many ways to use a custom map. 1.  Networking with local businesses 2.  Selling ad space (we don't recommend this, but can be done if done correctly) 3.  Print piece that is so beautiful you can hardly stand it.  Print map on one side, your information on the other side. 4.  Take your maps into the Chamber of Commerce, listing businesses on the other side with contact information. 5.  The list goes on.I would love any ideas on how you would use a map to market.  Alot of these ideas are coming from our clients who tell me what they think will work!Cherie Youngwww.BeautifulCustomMaps.comwww.CherieYoung.com760.782.0103

There is a company that is hosting a couple of designs for our clients.  We no longer work with this company, and see that the links were not put up properly or not at all.To protect the clients I am not mentioning who this company is.What recourse do I have for intellectual property rights if they do not put our information up or not correctly?This is not Advanced Access, as I have resolved this with AA and they assure me that this is not a problem and my links have been put up on the AA sites that I requested.Cherie YoungOnline Marketing Strategieswww.BeautifulCustomMaps.comwww.CherieYoung.com

Am I the only one that is offended by this saying? Somehow it is the hip thing to say to someone, and it's rude. We were at a tradeshow last year and my son walked up to 2 gentleman wanting to ask them a question, and said, "Dude...," it was funny that he had the courage to do this, but I was also horrified that my child showed such disrespect to a stranger. Then to offend even worse if for another female to address me as "Dude." I am a woman, and a lady and do not wish to be a Dude. What happened to old fashioned manners, like sir or maam? It wasn't that long ago when the children addressed their teachers with respect, like Miss ... I don't expect that, but certainly a level of respect would be nice from our children and grown adults who are too old to be cool by saying "dude". On 4th...

I can't think of a more beautiful place to live.  Ramona has had quite a bit of rain so far this year.  I ride a horse at the International Equestrian Center and recommend Kim Lenahan from http://www.shadytreehorses.com.  Kim is the kindest trainer and person I have ever met.  Her barn is family oriented and the kids she works with are phenomenal.  I lease "Bug" with my son, and the weather has been paradise.You can find camels, buffalos, llamas, zebras and many other critters here in Ramona.   After two fires, our town has become stronger.  People are friendlier than ever.  We value our neighbors and friends.  30 minutes to the snow, 45 minutes to the San Diego beach or desert.  We live right in the middle of majestic mountains.  I love it here and invite you to come and visit us.
