Did you know that viewing scenes of nature can help to reduce anxiety, stress and even anger ? When you cannot get out in nature, you can easily reap some of the same benefits just by looking at nature photos. Not only do nature scenes help with the anxiety, stress and anger as I mentioned, but studies have also shown that nature scenes can also reduce blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension and even stress hormones.  Some might even say that specific colors that are found in nature scenes create a positive response emotionally and physically as well. Color helps to heal, energize and soothe us. It instills a sense of peace and calm over us, uplifts us, energizes and it improves focus, awareness and even concentration.  You can benefit from both colors and nature by taking brisk walk...

LAKE ARROWHEAD THROW BACK  Here, we are taking a look back at how SR-189 through Blue Jay has changed over the years from 1955 to today, 2019. The Jensen's shown in the photo was the first location of the company, opening in 1940. The 76 is a historical landmark. Some places like the Public Ice Rink did not close until 2001 when a snowstorm collapsed its roof and the cost to repair was greater than the insurance would cover. The training center on Burnt Mill closed in 2013.  Photo Courtesy of CHP-Arrowhead

There are a lot of things I can and will do....but first coffee. It's amazing how coffee can make you feel 10 feet tall and bullet proof. Aside from feeling awake and alert, studies that have been conducted state that coffee also has other health benefits like protecting against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes, liver disease - including liver cancer ( Thank you Mayo Clinic ) help to burn fat and may even protect you from Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Hey ! I'll drink to that !Coffee is rich in antioxidants and contains beneficial nutrients like Riboflavin ( vitamin B2 ), Pantothenic Acid ( vitamin B5 ), both manganese and potassium as well as magnesium and niacin (vitamin B3 ).   A Harvard study published in 2011 ( Study ) stated that women who drank 4 or more cups of coffee pe...

In like a lion, out like a lamb is how the saying goes, I think. If this is correct, we should be having a very calm ending to March.  But right now, it's in the lion state of mind, still.  We've had the wettest winter in years; snow and rain.  We asked and we received.   That said, we are all saying "ok, I give up, I'm ready for spring.  Please BRING IT! Lake Arrowhead is FULL. Thank you Mother Nature.     Not only is the lake thankful, so is our forest.  Spring, once it really gets here, we'll experience flowers and trees at their healthiest in years. I can't wait to drive around and take pictures of the flowers blooming and trees leafing.  If you're on the mountain this month, here are a few things to do:   SKYPARK AT SANTA'S VILLAGE THE LAKE ARROWHEAD VILLAGE SNOW VALLEY SKI RESORT ...

Lake Arrowhead is having one of its best winters in YEARS! Maybe 10. We're getting one snow storm after another, with plenty of rain in-between.  Our lake level was down approx. 12 feet in December, but is now only 1.3 feet from being full.  That is wonderful news! * Remember 1" of rain equals about 3" of lake rise.  I was previewing a lakefront estate the other day and the water was lapping at the properties breaker wall, where only last summer, one could sit up lawn chairs in the sandy dirt below that same wall.  Not only did our lake need the rain, so did our precious forest. Trees were desperate for liquid. Residents were concerned about the wretched bark beetles making their way back to our mountain because, as we know, those nasty bugs depend on a drought situation, which we are/w...

A lot of emotions go into preparing your home for sale. Sometimes, these emotions can be counter productive to getting top dollar for your home. While it's important to know why you are selling - you should generally keep this to yourself or solely between you and your Realtor in confidence. When other Real Estate Agents and/or potential buyers think " You don't have a choice " or you're running some sort of " Fire Sale ", for whatever reason, good or bad, they are likely to consider you desperate and their offer to purchase will generally reflect this. One of the worst things you can do when selling your home is to show any sort of desperation or anxiousness. Not all desperation or anxiousness is bad. Perhaps your daughter moved out of state, is having a baby and you just won't to enjo...
