I don’t know about you, but I don’t listen to the National News on TV in the evening anymore. That has been a long practiced event in my family, since I was a small girl. My father always listened to the National News every night. He also subscribed to Newsweek and we took the daily paper. These were all institutions in my life.
I have changed my life. We don’t listen to the National News. I don’t take the newspaper or subscribe to Newsweek. I really don’t like the New Media anymore. There is it seems an effort on (104 comments)

Take a drive out to Oak Run from Redding and you will see beautiful country. As you are leaving Redding you will see old ranches and newer ranchettes all along oak studded acres. Rolling golden hills with those very old oak trees is a California standard and I always enjoy them during anytime of year. There is is this deep connection in California with the Oak Tree. Scrub Oaks, Live Oaks and Black Oaks are easy to spot on your trip to Oak Run. Obviously, some very smart person named the road and small town of Oak Run appropriately.
It is that time of year to prepare for and plant bulbs for spring color in your garden. I guess Tulips are my favorite. Someday, I’ll have the time to build a greenhouse in my backyard, so that I can plant bulbs in containers for bringing into the house. Most bulbs do well in our zone including, Daffodils, Crocus, and Gladiolus. My mother always planted Glads and they are a sentimental favorite for me.
It is also that time to plant Iris. I love the old bearded Iris. There are new and wonderful color versions. You will be amazed (3 comments)
My husband, David Gendron and I love to show property in the surrounding areas of Shasta, Trinity and Lassen National Forests. If we head East, West or North we can always take a few moments to catch a photo of Shasta or Lassen, different tree species or wildflowers.

Bird Watchers...You Will Love Redding, California! My husband David Gendron and I own two acres that backs to the Churn Creek. We live on a wildlife sanctuary. I know of no where in California where I can have all of nature at my back door and commute to work in 10 minutes. The Churn Creek winds through Redding and offers a diverse setting for migrating birds and wildlife. We have Great Blue Heron, Snowy Egret and Green Billed Heron all in our back yard. We have many migrating birds that come through and visit the Churn. Some are seed eaters and (0 comments)

My husband and I are Fly Fishing enthusiasts. We love being on the river and the connection it brings to the river and to the environment. There is nothing better than hunting that “brookie” or “brown”. My husband David, fly fisherman extraordinaire (he is poetry in motion when it comes to fly fishing) and professional photographer is the true fly fisherman. He can fly fish anywhere in any condition. I, on the other hand have to have just the right spot and just the right equipment and so on and on. I fiddle at fly fishing. However, both styles of (0 comments)
Celebrating Halloween and Having Pumpkin Fun in Redding, California - 10/27/07 08:05 AM
It is that wonderful time again when children get excited about “Trick or Treating” and parents organize to keep their children safe and allow for a fun evening. I love all the holidays and I think the best thing about being a Realtor is having fun with my clients and their families during each and every holiday. We like to put out that carved pumpkin for the neighborhood kids. My son puts out a scary pumpkin and I put out a rather “Martha Stewart” pumpkin. I bought her pumpkin carving tools and highly recommend the product. I use to make goodies, (0 comments)
We love living here in this gloriously diverse area. Access to the Lassen, Shasta and Trinity National Forests are part of why we love the area.

We are well known to have some of the best fly fishing country in California. Shopping in quaint stores like (0 comments)

This is a difficult time to advise clients on the market conditions. It will all depend upon your goals and whether you are pressured. For those home owners that have difficult loans with payment options that are increasing, the sooner they try to deal with their situation the better. If you have equity and can refinance, now would be the time to get the best loan you can and set tight. For those sellers with up-side-down situations, the sooner you get some help from a real estate agent experienced in completing Short Sales the sooner you can get out of an (0 comments)

Hayfork, CA....reminiscent of Northern Exposure....Freedom and Space! - 10/19/07 03:58 PM
Hayfork, California located in Trinity County California is a quiet and beautiful remote place. When driving the some 30 miles from Highway 299 on Highway 3 to Hayfork, one begins to feel as if they are entering the TV show "Northern Exposure". You are sure that you will see a moose at any moment and that the people will be open, funny and eccentric. The town closes down on the weekends and there is virtually no cell service at least on my network. You feel the instant and constant need to slow......down! Way Down! It is quite nice.

Redding is located in Sunset’s Climate Zone 9 which is very similar to Zone 8. We are able to have a safer climate for growing citrus than in Zone 8. The cold basin includes the valley to the south of Redding. The same thermal belt determines which species and varieties (hibiscus, melaleuca, pittosporum and other plants) are recommended for Zone 9 but not for Zone 8.
