Okay, here's the quick version of how my cat (Mr. Kitty) is a highly ranked blog in the Google search engine. It can be found at http://killcount.blogspot.com. The site is NOT for those who can not tolerate dead animals left by a cat. You have been warned. Mr. Kitty began bringing his daily "catches" and leaving them on the door step for us ever since we got him. I began taking pictures and posting them to a blog. There were short descriptions of the pictures, all just for fun and family. There were videos added after a while that were posted to some sites including YouTube so I could pass them on to others. One day I was searching for an exterminator in Placerville, and Mr. Kitty's blog popped up near the top. I searched the images and videos and saw him there too. Come to find out tha...

  We deal with the removal of water damage on a regular basis, it may be beneficial to you. Stumbled upon this YouTube video about Water Damage and Mold Prevention. It also describes a 10 minute checkup which I thought was very helpful. The video is short but touches on a lot of good things. Check it out and post your comments.

Client thinking of paint their home this spring? Better plan on doing any repairs first. I see it much too often, homeowners wanting some repairs done after the home has been painted. I'm talking about the exterior here but it applies to the interior as well. The painting should be the last thing scheduled to be done. The final project, the final touch, the let's have a party cuz we are done! I've been called to replace some gutters, patch some stucco, repair some dry rot on trim boards - All after the exterior painting is complete. I hear "the painter noticed some bad boards while he was spraying the house. Or we decided to add a larger window in the kitchen. These are all great ideas to improve and maintain your home, but let's plan ahead. If you have a client that is considering some...

  The idea of marketing on the internet was strange at first. So many different sites and networking groups to choose from, and a lot to learn. But by jumping in and checking it out, things got a little easier. The more a did, the more I tried new things. The one thing that is clear today, is this.... If you market yourself in a bunch of different places people will find you. I'm not talking about the people who are looking for you specifically, they probably can already find you. I want the guy who has a dry rot situation that needs correcting, but doesn't know who to call. Or the woman in need of an answer to why water stains are in the ceiling. The man with a fence blown over, want the fence fixed. He may find me. I'm not hard to find. If I'm moving to Texas and need a realtor, how ...

I love interesting places to eat and we found one today in Placerville, CA called the Heyday Cafe'. It has a small but rounded menu and the food was great. Sean and I had a Chicken Panni with mango chutney sauce and a Caesar salad, the help was attentive and we lucked out by going in a little early. We just completed a 203k consultation where my lender joined us to see what I do and then treated us to lunch. The Realtor Joanne Frisk told us about this place. Joanne is a ReMax Gold Realtor and is very knowledgeable in the 203k process. Our host Sean Anderson is an active renovation expert at Wells Fargo Home Loans in Folsom CA. Sean makes loans all over his region from Redding to Bakersfield. He knows how to close them quickly and I understand that he gets referrals from other banks outs...

My First Segment in a series about Historic Placerville Many a morning as I sit in the local coffee shop "Centro" I gaze at the bell tower, and for some reason the sencond to last paragraph of this story runs through my mind. (The tower has watched most of Placerville's history pass beneath it, especially in the days when the plaza was the center of life. People met beneath its bell to share the news, discuss the weather and to watch the world go by.)   The Story of the BellTowerThe BellTower on Historic Main Street is a unique sight. Not many towns can boast of such a structure in the middle of their town. It has its own history, and in its day served a most vital and important role. It was first called "the Plaza".Placerville suffered three fires in 1856 which destroyed a good portion...

Here are all the vids from yesterdays fun I am still having some trouble uploading these videos. I was hoping active rain would let me load directly to my blog, but it appears I must convert it to HTML at some other site before posting here.
