When one first arrives at Zion National Park, one sometimes finds they have a a little problem.  This problem reminds of dialogue from the old 1950s Gloria Swanson flick, "Sunset Boulevard."  Swanson playing the part of Norma Desmond had two lines, which described the dilemma at Zion.  (1) "All r...

No journey of the amazing sites and adventures along Utah's Highway 12 would be complete without visiting Bryce Canyon National Park, with its array of naturally carved spires and Hoodoos.    What is a Hoodoo, you ask?  There are several definitions provided for the term according to Merriam - We...

Folks, here’s the thing about traveling certain parts of Utah's Highway 12. There are scenes which remind of childhood days at the Saturday matinee. Days where we soaked up black and white Western movies, like “Stagecoach,” featuring John Wayne, against alien looking landscapes with massive rocky...

Beginning tomorrow afternoon, my car and I will be putting Magellan on autopilot. We’re heading east.  I won't tell you exactly where, because that would spoil the fun - or at least I think it might:-) There will be mountains, and forests; but not the kind you think of.  There will be deserts, pl...

I am a breast cancer warrior.  I am also a Political Bozo.  Which makes it a bit ironic that I was invited to travel to Washington DC last week to advocate to Congress for breast cancer.  Truth be told, I had to look up who my house representatives are.  How do you address them? And I'm still unc...

December 2018 California's Governor Gavin Newsom and family purchased their new home in Fair Oaks, on 8 acres on the bluffs overlooking Sacramento Bar. While I am not in his inner circle, I have been pulled into his outer orbit by the fact he is now my neighbor 3 doors away!  I thought I would sh...

This is May 4th.  What does that mean?  Well, in California, it means our state legislature has declared May 4th as "Star Wars Day." Why, you ask? Because “May the 4th” sounds a lot like “May the Force” be with you! There is also other otherworldly news this weekend.  For the stargazers out there...

Last weekend, while my daughter and I were spending a little time in celebration of my birthday, she took me on a little detour after a delightful brunch at Mimosa House. She drove not far away, to a little place in the community I had heard of, but had not been to. It was Strad Meadery, founded ...

One of the services I offer my Sacramento sellers is, upon receipt of an offer, I always check MLS to find out if the buyer's agent had accessed the lockbox. We can tell if the agent opened the box. If we have 10 offers on a home, and 9 of the agents showed it and one did not, the agent who did n...

Today my daughter, Jill, treated to me to a pleasant brunch in honor of my birthday.  It was my first experience at any of the five Greater Sacramento Mimosa House restaurants.  The local weather, in the middle 70s, was enjoyed at our table on the patio.My daughter opted for, and was really conte...

One of my favorite Sacramento area nurseries is Green Acres Garden Center.  This year the late rains seem to have left tomato plant stock at Home Depot and Lowe's lacking.  However, I found a large supply with many varieties at locally-owned Green Acres. Green Acres also has a delightful collecti...

In our days of limited inventory this spring, it is not unusual for homes to sell that are not listed in MLS. We all need to be creative to continue to prosper in challenging times. I thought of this today as I struggled speaking with customer service reps. Dealing with CSR anywhere is pretty muc...

Are you searching for a historic farm and acreage in Elk Grove? Look no further, as this property is waterfront. If you can't build on the waterfront because, well, it's Elk Grove and not the coast, you can always bring the waterfront to you. Although there are a few luxury waterfront homes in El...

We decided a while back to put all of our Weintraub & Wallace lockboxes into one account. So went down to visit Metrolist and came back to my home office to discover my membership in MLS had been terminated -- by mistake. When I asked after-the-fact for the paperwork that the clerk forgot to give...
