I'm not a huge fan of opera. In fact, strike that, I'm not an opera fan at all, who am I kidding? That's not to say that there's anything wrong with opera or with people who enjoy it. I'm just die hard rock 'n' roll, which has evolved from the 1960s and now includes all sorts of musical classes. ...

Last year about this time I shot photographs of homes in Land Park -- just as the sun was beginning to sink into the horizon -- which cast a glow among the shadows and fallen leaves. This time I chose a more intimate view. In fact, you might be amazed to know that every single feature was found i...

Here I was bracing myself for having no place to shop when the Land Park Target on Broadway closes up in January for expansion, and yesterday I read that Target has called off its remodeling plans due to the depressed economy.

My brother-in-law happens to be in Las Vegas at the same time as me -- he's here for the poker tournament at Caesars Palace. I invited him to the About.com dinner at La Salsa Cantina. He's so polite and sweet. Too sweet to say the dinner was awful, so I will say it for him and warn you to never ...

Next door is Caesars Palace, overshadowed by the gigantic neon sign of Donny and Marie at The Flamingo. I'm ready for another fun-filled day in Las Vegas. This is not a town I'd ordinarily visit...

I don't know about you, but it's not always easy to figure out which flowers are ready to be deadheaded and which are babies. In the past, I've felt pangs of guilt after I've snapped off a flower head believing it was dead, only to discover after the flower was in my hand that it was a new baby ...

Looking through our schedules last month, my husband and I discovered we were holding tickets for two performances on October 22nd. One show was Laurie Anderson's Homeland Tour at the Mondavi Center in Davis. The other was Kris Kristofferson at the Crest Theatre in downtown Sacramento. Between th...

At my office meeting this morning, an REO agent said Countrywide's stats are showing 1 out of every 5 short sales are successful. Then, other agents expressed concerns over closing a short sale, and some mentioned that they deliberately eliminate short-sale listings from their buyer's daily email...
