on June 30th 2006 Cedarfair Corp purchased Paramount Parks including our local Great America theme park in Santa Clara California.Cedarfair, a very good theme park company purchased the rather mediocre Paramount Parks.  I am glad to see Cedarfair take over Great America.  On the West coast Cedarfair has owned Knott's Berry Farm for many years and has done a smashing job on that park.  In the Midwest, the flagship park Cedar Point Park is one of the best ride parks in the country.Paramount Parks systematically dismantled everything that was a theme at Great America.  Gone are all the themes of Hometown Square, County Fair, Yankee Harbor, Yukon Territory and Orleans Place.  Paramount slowly began to install rides tied to Paramount movies as a cross promotional tool.  It did not work.  Inv...

Effective Jan 1, 2008, Secretary of State has changed the laws for Notary by eliminating " Personaly Known", which means, earlier if the Notary knows a signer personaly, the Notary need not request for the signer's ID.  The new law requires Notary must request for the acceptable form of ID for every signer even if the Notary know the signer personally.Accordinlgy the Notarial wordings on the Acknowledgement and Jurat certificates have been changed. You can access this information at the Secretary of State business portal. http://www.sos.ca.gov/business/notary/notary_jurat.htm

I suppose stories like this are inevitable. Living in a place like Silicon Valley, where growth seems constant and inevitable, you just have to expect more and more building.This time, it is a milestone. The city of Santa Clara has just signed off on a new development on the last 17 acres of farmland left in the city.I have lived in this community long enough to see lots of farm and farm related land get developed. The Miljevich farm in Saratoga went away years ago. I can still remember the old grain and feed place that used to be where City Center is now at Saratoga-Sunnyvale and Stevens Creek.I suppose the real test is in how cities let these areas be developed. I know that some cities let developers cram as many units into the space as humanly possible. Your lucky if a blade of grass...

Redesign staging is my favorite!  Solstice Staging staged this Santa Clara, California home using the owners' own furniture as well as Solstice Staging's accessories.  It's amazing what you can do with sellers' own items - people often don't realize the potential of what they have in their home.  There's nothing better than surprising them using their own things. The home sold in 10 days with multiple offers.  Best of luck to the owners in their new home!Here's a taste of what Solstice Staging did: Living room before:  Living room after Solstice Staging:Bedroom before:Bedroom after Solstice Staging:
