New Year – New Home in Mission Viejo I’d like to start off this year by wishing all of my readers a Happy New Year! I hope that 2016 brings you all that you hope for. And what better way to start off the New Year but with a new home. As we pack up the holiday lights and settle in for the winter, perhaps you should consider finally taking the first steps to getting into some new digs. Is your crew growing in number and you need extra bedrooms or have the kids move off to college and you want to down size? Are you looking for something on a single level with no stairs or maybe you want a small condo where the home owners association takes care of the landscaping? To start the juices flowing, I have created a list of New Year Mission Viejo properties – these homes hit the market only since...

In the past couple years, I've moved into my empty nest stage of my life. Entering this phase as a widow has added an additional emptiness to my days. It's self explanatory that filling time can often seem a challenge.This childless stage is one in which most people plan to do all the things they haven't. They want to travel, take up a new hobby...get out and do things. For the widow or widower, they no longer have the partner with whom to head out but this does not need to stop your plans. The City of Mission Viejo Norman P Murray Community and Senior Center has many free and low cost ideas for you. The Center offers classes for hobbies, music, fitness as well as a beautiful setting to relax, read and meet people. There are ideas for everyone from young children to seniors. If you want...

 I love my dog. I might even like yours, but I don't want my dog hair in my food and I sure as heck don't want your dog's hair in my food. This post is going to get me in trouble....oh dear, again? I do not understand why our dogs have suddenly become human? Why do they need to go everywhere we go? I love seeing our puppies out in parks, walking around town and on the beach chasing seagulls. But I do NOT want to see them in stores...and definitely not around food.I took a visit to my local Target Store in Mission Viejo and stumbled over a large German Sheppard dripping hair. I know this because there was hair all over my pants. Pretty dog, shouldn't be in Target. I asked a Target employee and she said "we welcome fur babies at Target" with a smile. I suppose assuming I wanted to bring m...
