Jerrys Wood-fired Dogs          Happy National Dog Day!  Ok, ok, I know it's not a holiday for this kind of dog, but as this local eatery has become one of my favorite spots to stop in and grab a bite to eat, I decided Jerrys needed it's own blog post.  What better day to write a blog about a local hot dog joint than National Dog Day?          Jerrys Wood-fired Dogs is a franchise that got it's start in 2003, when an Ohio native (can you guess his name?) brought his wood-fired dogs & sausages to Southern California.  I'm glad he did.  The funny thing is, I don't even really like hot dogs.  I'll occasionally indulge at a BBQ, but normally, this item wouldn't make any of my "top 10" lists.  Jerry's isn't your average dog.  They've got a large menu of specialty dogs, including vegetarian o...

Speechless Sundays - Butterflies as Accessories     We were fortunate to go to the Orange County Fair (more on that later) this week.   They had a new exhibit of butterflies this year.  There must have been something especially sweet about my son's hair as many of the butterflies thought he need them as his latest hair accessory.

 The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, noses are running (hopefully not yours)…spring has definitely arrived! It’s that time of year when, if you are lucky enough to own property here in Costa Mesa, to conduct the few simple maintenance operations that   1)      Are all too easy to overlook; and 2)      Are guaranteed to save you big money as time goes on. Sooooooo… Clear those branches   Termites are one of the nastiest little creatures on Earth. They can enter a Costa Mesaproperty undetected and immediately begin to munch through your home’s wooden underpinnings. Branches that lean up against a home provide the perfect pathway for termites and other creatures (the list includes squirrels, mice and spiders). Spring is the easiest time to trim those branches while leaves ar...

When searching for a new house, topping most people’s list of requirements are the number of bedrooms, number and configuration of bathrooms, square footage, yard size—characteristics that are easy to compare. Architectural style might be important; asking price, certainly highly important, although many prospective buyers assume some wiggle room might be possible. There are so many facts to consider, particularly when that new home might include relocating to Costa Mesa, that one extremely important factor sometimes gets short shrift: the neighborhood. When I escort my clients on a tour of the properties they have decided to check out, I’m sure to remind them to observe the surroundings as well as the home. Some key details to observe about a neighborhood when relocating to Costa Mesa...
