Prudential is officially obsolete in Sonoma County (see correction below) as of tomorrow morning. Two of their offices have become Better Homes and Gardens and another two joined forces with Century 21. RE/MAX, once a Sonoma County powerhouse seems like it is hanging on by a thread.

  Thanksgiving in my home this year was on Saturday, after waiting for 4 remaining family members to arrive. Because of this, the Turkey Trot couldn't begin until Sunday morning, just to be safe. Sure enough, I went outside to fetch the Sunday morning paper and about 30 "Thanksgiving survivors" ...
A smile is a frown turned upside down. A 6 is a 9 to buy some time. Have you ever tried to find a house and it doesn't seem to be there no matter how hard you look? We've had some former home owners that have been playing tricks on whomever in the real estate industry might happen by for a BPO ph...

Wow ... talk about getting dumped! We've all been there, I'm sure ... but what did this cute little camping trailer do to deserve this? I was driving down Llano road in Sonoma County and happened upon this unwanted former "home" that will have to be hauled away. My only question is ... did the tr...
I remember Little Shop of Horrors as an odd and scary movie, but it was certainly entertaining. OK, maybe warped is a better word to describe it. California Carnivores plays on that movie, yet they do it in a delightful way. At the road to the entrance, you are greeted by a giant Venus Flytrap. ...
Growing up, my Thanksgivings were always spent together with my cousins, Aunts and Uncles on my Dad's side. One year, we all decided to gather at my family's beach cabin in Newport, Oregon.
