Lots of Bull in Yucaipa
While going for a listing appointment I came across these cows and bulls up in the north end of Yucaipa where there are a lot of ranches and fields of cows, pigs, goats and horses. 
I came across these long horn steers and noticed the baby calf so I just had to stop after the appointment and take a few pictures. Unfortunately I did not  have my good camera so here they are taken on my iPhone. 
 
 
 
I've lived in Southern California all my life. I love this area in the Inland Empire and I enjoy sharing. My many … (10 comments)

Still Excited When I Hear the Words
"Your House Closed"
 
This morning I am sitting in my office doing some paperwork and working up a new file for a listing I just entered into the MLS.  
But in the back of my mind I am waiting for the phone call from our escrow officer that the house I put into escrow 20 days ago is closed. 
Maybe due to the holidays and seeing my kids back East this past week makes me a little emotional but I was thinking about the first house I closed so many years ago.  Since then, how many … (12 comments)

Happy Holidays from Southern California 2015-2016
 
 
I took this photo while waiting to get on the freeway last week. Of course I could have gotten a citation for picking up my phone but thought it was worth the risk and I was stopped at a long light and put my car in park. Riding a bike is such a well loved and popular sport in California so why not Santa?
We are pretty relaxed here in Southern California and here was Santa on his way to an important date just a few days before Christmas. My friend who is a police officer saw … (18 comments)

Panda Express is an American Success Story
 
In 1973, Andrew & Peggy Cherng opened the first "Panda Inn" in Pasadena CA with Andrew's father, Master Chef Ming-Tsai Cherng. This was one of the first restaurants to offer the Mandarin and Szechuan Cuisine to CA.
Then in 1983, Andrew Cherng opened the first "Panda Express" in the Glendale Galleria which is an upscale mall. This place took off and the express Chinese food became a reality which consumers loved to eat. 
In 1993, Andrew opened his first stand alone "Panda Express" in Long Beach, CA and it was a big success also. Of course, other sites claim the … (4 comments)

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)

Today is National OREO Day and What is Your Favorite Kind
 

Did  you know that March 6 every year is National Oreo Day? Now this is my kind of day and I am sure many of you will agree. 
Oreos come in many sizes, flavors, and even ice cream. Do you like cream filling, chocolate, double stuffed, peanut butter (new), bite size, ice cream sandwiches, and snack packs. I think they are all good but I might like to try the peanut butter soon. 
How do you like your Oreos? Besides having an assortment of flavors, there is another … (14 comments)

Will the Real Estate Agent Say Cheese

 
I saw this movie recently "Evan Almighty" and the real estate agent "Eve Adams" portrayed by Molly Shannon was hilarious. The family moves to the Suburbs and they arrive to find this huge home and the agent meets them at the door of their Hummer when they pull up. Of course she is trying to get a photo of her with the family and popping her head up through the 5 of them standing there. She says "Say Escrow" instead of the typical phrase "cheese". It was such a funny moment and she … (12 comments)

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)
