Real Estate Agent
I am a retired Greater Sacramento Realtor. My career spanned 40 years beginning in 1981, and ending in 2021. MY INTERESTS & HOBBIES: In addition to family activities, I am active in a Sacramento history group, and a local Sacramento area genealogy group. I actively research several family names. I also have a special love of cooking. For several years, I worked at an international software development company, which was represented by people from all over the globe. During that time, I was fortunate enough to learn special recipes from a number of them. They include, Indian, Caribbean, Spanish, Italian, Mexican, Romanian, Hungarian, Irish, and Carolina "Low Country" recipes. I have developed a special interest in mixing certain recipes from varying ethnic groups to create unique recipes and combinations not usually seen. Another of my favorite pastimes is gardening. And, I often find myself spending hours in my garden, and wondering where time has gone! I am interested in photography and cameras. This interest began as a child, and has remained and was perpetuated in my Real Estate career, family activities, and travel. Last but not least, I enjoy travel - both foreign and domestic.
It's been an interesting week! Monday, family came to celebrate my son's birthday. I cooked. On Tuesday, my cellphone died. I had hoped to limp it along until the first of the year, but alas, it wasn't to be. I hoped to replace it with a Pixel 6 Pro, but supply line issues kept one from being av...
I'm busier than a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest today.  Family is coming home for Thanksgiving dinner.  Today, it's all about chopping, baking, devilling, etc.  However, I'm sharing an ancient memory that came to mind. The year was 1966.  The year, I cooked my first turkey.  I was youn...
There are special autumn days when I feel fortunate to live in close proximity to the American River Parkway.  The leaves turning golden coupled with activity on the river adds to the warm spirit of the season.While Salmon fishing is closed from November 1st through December 31st along many areas...
Today, as the noon hour began to approach, I decided to visit an old haunt in nearby Old Fair Oaks Village.  The Village is a small quaint community that features a small park with little shops, cafes, and a brew house, among its other businesses.  However, it is the chickens that inhabit the par...
On a pleasant drive, in the Greater Sacramento region is a mysterious place in nearby Ione.   We really can’t say Preston Castle comes “alive” this time of year, because many folks claim ghosts of the dead remain there still.  The purpose for building the Castle was to accommodate the Preston Sch...
While chatting with an old friend a couple weeks ago, we decided to calendar a day trip to Apple Hill.  Marcia and I have known each other since 1950.  Yep, that's a little over 70 years.  We went all through school together beginning in the 2nd grade.Apple Hill is a community of more than 50 far...
While out and about over the weekend, I had an opportunity to drive by a place that’s special this time of year - The Nimbus Fish Hatchery, near Hazel Avenue and Highway 50, near the Greater Sacramento Communities of Gold River and Rancho Cordova.In October and November each year, the hatchery be...
Some folks say Halloween, Christmas, or their birthday is a favorite holiday of the year.  But, that’s them, it's not me!  I’m much fonder of a newer celebration that has found its beginning in recent years.  My personal favorite will be celebrated on Sunday!“International Talk Like a Pirate Day,...
Those who know me also know I prefer watching video rather than reading books these days. But, I also have a fascination with pirates, and to learn as much about them as I’d like, I’ve found several books that provide information my hungry eyes have devoured!Real accounts of pirate history are fa...
Earlier today, I read a blog post from Margaret Rome, titled, “Don’t Assume.” Margaret addressed things Realtors shouldn’t assume about home buyers and their wants/needs.Margaret's words brought to mind similar thoughts I had on this topic a few weeks ago, while attending my high school class reu...
