My Springtime Visit to Smoke Tree Ranch in Palm Springs - 04/08/10 08:05 PM
After living here in the Coachella Valley for 14 years, I was finally able to cross off an item on my to-see list—Smoke Tree Ranch in Palm Springs. The illustrious history of this iconic resort ensures its permanent place among California’s storied resort properties. Founded way back in 1925 on almost 400 acres of untouched desert in a curve of the San Jacinto Mountains, this enclave of homes and guest cottages became a retreat for the world’s foremost families, among them Walt Disney’s. Homes are passed down through the generations. An MLS search pulled up only two sales within the past (1 comments)

A generous inventory combined with recent price reductions / foreclosures / short sales makes this a great time to purchase a home in The Citrus Club at La Quinta Resort, one of La Quinta's nicest country clubs.

A Serving of Art with a Side of Earthquake—A memorable Easter Sunday - 04/05/10 11:13 AM
Tantalizing art, bare-armed weather, picture-perfect setting. And, a 7.2 earthquake to boot on this memorable Easter Sunday here in the Palm Springs valley! Karen Ralke–my faithful art show companion—and I had just exited the Indian Wells Arts Festival, found my car on the grassy north 40, and turned on the ignition when the trembler hit. Thinking it was perhaps somebody I knew deliberately rocking the car, and much too violently to be amusing, I crankily turned around to ascertain the culprit. No one is there. Then, my foggy brain decided there was something seriously amiss with my Nissan. Karen spys the (4 comments)
