The wonderful people at the Pet Rescue Center in Mission Viejo take in dogs and cats with serious medical issues. The goal is to care for these animals so that they become adoptable. Of course they rely on donations to make this a reality. Their website is full of of happy outcomes and opportunities to donate and volunteer. Katniss is the featured story of the day. Katniss was found in a high kill center as an injured puppy. She had been hit by 2 cars and was in bad shape. Through the loving care of the Pet Rescue Center of Mission Viejo, she was saved, as were all four of her legs. She is now happily settled in her adopted home.You can read her full story here. Please consider a donation and/or becoming a volunteer. Visit the Pet Rescue Center in Mission Viejo website for more stories ...

  As a Renter Did You Know This? Look at the chart it is astounding.  We can see in the chart that we have a huge increase in the amount that tenants or renters pay in rent.   The  media is reporting that the market place is shifting to a more rental society, really.  Yes we here that individuals do not want the responsibility of the care and up keep of a home. Most consumers if they have the facts would choose to purchase when they can purchase a property at a lower monthly cost when compared to renting a property.  There is a great benefit to the individual.   There are specular programs for first time buyers with little to no down payment.  If the reports are correct then we should rush out and buy as many investment properties as possible.  A condo to multiple unite buildings.  Eith...

Are You Ready For El Nino? El Nino is here in Southern California. It is becoming pretty clear that we will have heavy rains this year. This is exciting, but also something to take seriously.Be prepared! I'm not going to write a long list of to-dos..but it's time to consider a few basics.  How is your roof? Have you had leaks which need fixing? How is the condition of your stucco? Patching now to prevent moisture intrusion in your walls What kind of drainage does your hard scape have? Are there drains or proper sloping? Do you have a back slope that needs plants to hold it in place? While we're all adapting to drought friendly landscaping, a hill filled with rocks can slide. Do you have a supply of sand bags and sand? Many communities will have sites where you can go to get free bags an...

 Feeling The Heat - SoCal October   It's here...again...the heat. As Southern California hears report after report about our upcoming El Nino, we are forgoing the morning coffee for ice tea. Ok...well I am.Triple digit days in the middle of October. But it's a dry heat. No seriously it is. That makes it more pleasant to exist in, but also makes me nervous about fires. Good news is the last couple heat waves have some in spurts and not long sustained stretches. When you live in Southern California, you are acutely aware of fire weather. On days like this, I admit that the first thing I do when I step outside is smell the air and see if I smell fire.Nothing....it's a good day.Next week? I hear there could be rain. I hope so....my sprinklers have been off since last Spring and I don't real...
