6 Tax Deductions You Should Know About Before Filing Your Taxes
 

Mortgage Interest Deduction: This will be your highest tax break as a homeowner. When you first purchase a home, the majority of your monthly payment goes towards interest. Therefore, you can deduct all of the interest from your mortgage from your taxes. Refer to the Form 1098 that was sent from your lender which indicates how much money was paid in mortgage interest that year. Mortgage Insurance Premiums: Mortgages with a loan-to-value higher than 80% must also pay PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance). You may be able to deduct … (10 comments)

Look Who is Drinking in the Rain
We had a big storm this weekend and while looking outside my window, I saw this poor hummingbird drinking in the pouring rain.

 
The little bird kept coming back over and over for a half hour or more. I was fasinated to see it even laying on the feeder as he/she was probably soaked to the skin.

Historic Yucaipa Roundabout Bridge and Statue
In Yucaipa, where the downtown is actually Uptown, the city solved the congestion and made a roundabout which was completed in May 2012 and added 50 more parking spaces.

The yearly festival celebrates completion of an Uptown Streetscape project that narrows Yucaipa Boulevard from four lanes to two and includes two traffic-slowing roundabouts complete with several Yucaipa-themed sculptures. One statue created by Aaron Eby, depicts a farmer resting after a day of fruit picking seated on an orange crate with a tree behind him with leaves dripping rainwater. This entire area of San Bernardino and … (7 comments)

Building Snowmen in Southern California
Recently we had a cold spell come through California and left snow in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. I live and work in the Inland Empire and we had lots of snow. 
It started late one night with blowing snow but thought it would be gone the next morning. Wrong! Snow everywhere I went, kids were out making snowmen in their yards. Snow lasted on the ground for over 24 hours due to the cold weather. 

This is how it looked in my neighborhood the morning after the snow.
