The first day we arrived in Borrego Springs, we tried to visit the Anza Borrego State Park Visitor's Center to no avail. Because it was a Sunday. That place was packed without any spare parking places. Bumper-to-bumper cars and traffic in this small desert town. Tourists everywhere. Pulling off t...

This is an excellent example of tectonic plate thrusts in Anza Borrego State Park, and you will find this scene shortly after passing the trailhead for the Palm Canyon Hike. It's a 3-mile hike roundtrip. But much of it is not on a flat sandy path. The path is narrow in some places. In others, it ...

Because I had researched some of the fabulous places to visit in Borrego Springs beforehand, I already had a somewhat agenda by the time we arrived. Whereas my husband's plan was to ask the park ranger for the up-to-date interesting places to go to view wildflowers. That's a good plan, but one co...

Before yesterday, I had never visited the Salton Sea in southern California, although I felt like I knew much about it. My late husband used to talk about the Salton Sea. Apparently he knew people who had bought homes in the desert under the high pressure sales that happened in the 1950s and 1960...

Well, maybe it's a hamster. Maybe it's a chipmunk. Hard to say. But Ziggy has a new toy that had been smushed into the bookshelves among my dozens of real estate awards. I found it yesterday while cleaning out the shelves and trying to rearrange all those awards in some pleasing manner. Everythin...

One of my buyer's agents reported that a few open house guests said they did not like three levels. My response to him was take a look at Mill at Broadway. Mostly all 3 flights of stairs (and selling) despite being under two freeways, with HOA dues and slammed together in tight quarters. In addit...

Even though we are all fully aware that Craigslist is full of slimy characters, it is still a good way to sell stuff as long as you use common sense. However, even I was tricked, although hopefully I caught it in time. I ended up changing passwords, user names, phone numbers and email addresses.T...

Working with agents who try to represent family members can be somewhat of a pain-in-the-you-know-what for a Sacramento listing agent. Why just a few days ago, I had a family member call and ask to see a listing. He acknowledged that he had an agent, but was too embarassed to disclose the agent w...

Except for the steak dinner a friend invited me to in Kona a while back, I have not readily thought of going out for a steak. It used to be a craving but I have lessened my intake of red meat for years. Not on purpose, it just sort of happened. For one thing, it gets harder to eat once living thi...

There is some kind of deal with my Mercedes where I get free GPS for 3 years, and then I think they try to find a way to charge for it. Everybody seeks subscription-based services today so they can charge you over and over. You own nothing. You lease everything.Which wouldn't be so bad if it was ...
