The damage I have seen caused by a failing washing machine hose has been mind blowing. If you don't think a washing machine hose can flood your house, think...

I was in Petaluma today to take some photos for a new listing. It was COLD this morning, and even though it was almost noon, the fog was just beginning to lift. I wasn't sure if I was going to get very good photos, but the fog was swirling upward as fast as I was driving toward it. When I arrived...

The past few months have been spent getting her paperwork in orde...

Holiday Lights in Rohnert Park CA I remember when growing up, my Mother would love to take us kids out in the car in search for the house with the best holiday lights.

A Question for the Banksters - Do the Investors know what you're up to? I didn't think so ... I'll tell them for you. Dear investor ... that 900 pound gorilla that you call a respectable bank is turning away a number of qualified buyers who would like to buy the "bank owned" properties they are s...

I've been going bonkers trying to decide how I should be using video for my business. I finally took the plunge and bought the newest Flip HD video camera that can record up to 2 hours. Costco (in my area) has a sale on them right now for $159.00. That is the lowest price I have seen yet ... and ...

In April of this year, we traveled inland to pick up our Grandaughter, Izabel, during her Spring Break. Izabel will be 8 in January and she loves hanging out with us. Since her parents have limited resources for special outings, we have had the privilege of being the first to take Izabel to Disne...
