Portland Meadows Race Track--
Must Love Horses & A Bit of Gambling Too!
 

Love Horses? Love the spirit of betting on them? It's a GAMBLE my Dad loved all of his life. He gambled on a lot of things but horses were his true love. Our life was full of race horses, jockeys, trainers and the morning newspaper with the day's upcoming race forecast. My Dad owned 26 Thoroughbred race horses and had a huge farm in Meridian, MS where we trained them. I got to spend some of my summer with my Dad at the race track stables. … (0 comments)

clark county: Sellers....I Hate to Hurt Your Feelings, DeClutter Your House! - 01/10/14 04:27 AM
If you are planning on selling your home this year...you're gonna have to DECLUTTER first. As I walk through your home and see it with "BUYER'S EYES" it is discouraging. I see all your beloved collections of dishes, dvds, books, collectable china, sports pictures, hunting items, old rugs and towels. You've probably heard this before but "Buyer's want to imagine themselves in your house, not your memories...theirs!" Think of it this way:Your house is now a "PRODUCT" for sale. It is now just a house. It is not your treasure box. Your memories will travel with you to the new place. … (3 comments)

clark county: Kayaking the LaCamas Lake in Camas WA - 09/19/13 11:28 AM
 Kayaking the LaCamas Lake in Camas WA  I'll admit, I'm a novice kayaker. We've been on kayak trips in Hawaii and Florida with guides but today we took out our new red Tamarack 120 "sit-on-top" type kayaks. I stressed all this week before this water-bound trip. I was worried that I would fall in the water just getting onto my boat. I was worried I wouldn't be able to keep up with my husband that I have nicknamed "Sparky." I was afraid...

clark county: Ranch and Dayranch Homes for Sale in Clark County, WA - 05/05/13 03:11 AM
Ranch homes and dayranch homes are a popular choice. The single level ranch home makes it easy to navigate..no stairs to climb to drag the vaccuum cleaner up, laundry down the stairs...it's all on the same level.
Dayranches are popular because a buyer could have their family or guests live downstairs or perhaps a caregiver if the city codes allow that sort of thing. Here in Clark County most of the dayranches are older homes. Many of these have been updated and remodeled because dayranch styles are extremely popular.
