  A Nice Surprise in my Yard Many of you know I am a bird lover and I hate to admit it but I have 4 regular bird feeders and 2 hummingbird feeders (1 in the winter). I just think it is my way of helping out the wildlife in my area especially during the cold months of fall and winter.   I recently went on a trip and after I came home, I was outside filling the bird feeders and much to my surprise a new plant was growing under one of the feeders. Oh my gosh, a sunflower plant must have popped up from the sunflower seeds that had fallen to the ground.   Approximately 2 weeks.   3 weeks old. 31/2 weeks.   Today is looks like it is fully opened! I feel like a new mother and here is my new addition to the yard. California is a dream come true state no matter what your needs or wants are. We h...

Someone cheated me and a friend. But first they cheated themselves. You see I lost materially but they lost the very footing of where their soul comes to rest. I went and spoke honestly about the incident and now forces that have promised to protect the just will go to work. What is mine will visit with me in its time and what was an injustice will be repaid by the one who makes all the rules and who has the final say. In this I trust THE LOWER NATURE What is it about a human being that causes them to bet their very existence on something so petty and inconsequential? I know we refer to it as temptation but why do we succumb to it so easily? Seeing that lower nature at work in a creation as majestic as a human being is well pretty...PRETTY DISAPPOINTING that is YOU GAIN BUT YOU LOSE MOR...

 World Kindness Week....Do Something Nice         This week is "World Kindness Week" so maybe you can share some kindness with others. Are you friendly when you pass others or do you just look straight ahead?   Try doing something nice for someone tomorrow. I have some suggestions for kindness this week:         1. Open the door for someone in a wheelchair or walker even if you have to wait a few seconds for them. 2. If you see a homeless person near a drive-in, buy them a cup of coffee or a meal but I never give $ in this situation.  3. Compliment someone on their pretty sweater or blouse as you are passing. Usually this will brighten up someone's day. 4. If someone opens a door for you, say "thank you" 5. Just saying "Good Morning" while passing is very nice. 6. If you see someone hav...

Foreclosure Discount Shrinks | Short Sale vs. Foreclosure | Riverside Home Prices | Riverside Real Estate Agents | Riverside Short Sale Agents Low inventory wipes out foreclosure discount        With the number of homes available for sale at an all-time low, the price difference between standard “equity” sales and bank foreclosures has all but dried up.    Real estate evaluation service Zillow said this week that the average discount nationwide for foreclosure properties had decreased to just 7.7 percent. In the Inland Empire, where the market is sizzling, the discount is less than 2 percent.    “The smallest foreclosure discount is found in places where competition for homes is so high, people there are willing to pay the same amount for a foreclosure re-sale that they would for a non-...
