Sorta by mistake, my husband and I ended up in Ione, CA, yesterday. Unlike many of the tourists who probably frequent Ione and support its 3 restaurants, we weren't there to visit loved ones in residence at Mule Creek Prison. The photo to the left is of Iron Ivan, a steam locomotive that was in o...

My husband believes that some things I say just pop up out of the blue with absolutely no reference point. He says, in conversations, I don't signal my turns. My brain is constantly in transition. Yet, he loves me anyway. During brunch at Bistro Michel yesterday, we were discussing vampire teeth....

My husband and I watched an astonishing movie last night -- thank goodness we finally got our plasma TV fixed. It didn't really have any dialogue. No subtitles. There wasn't much of a soundtrack apart from what was there at the time it was filmed. The scenery was breathtaking. The connection you ...

Practically every single day I battle this. I blame C.A.R. That would be the California Association of REALTORS, which creates the real estate forms we agents use in our business day in and day out. C.A.R. made the Short Sale Addendum difficult for the average Joe agent to use. See, real estate a...

Everybody has their own way of dealing with stress. Some people grab hockey sticks. Others drop pills or down whiskey. Some kick the dog. Me? I write. Or, I think of something funny. Like Myrl and I standing in the parking garage elevator at Old Sacramento, going nowhere, and being amazed there w...

Just as Myrl Jeffcoat and I were about to head out into the rain for a road trip to Napa country yesterday, I heard my housekeeper groaning in the back bath. I scurried into the room, looking at my watch. We had a 12:00 reservation at Bouchon in Yountville. My housekeeper had managed to pop off t...

How long does it take for a short sale to close? That's the million-dollar question so many of my sellers ask. Much depends on the lender and your listing agent. As a Sacramento short sale agent, I have systems in place to ensure fast processing of my short sales. I get a same-day HUD from escrow...

My 19-year-old niece adopted a chinchilla. Don't ask me why. Probably for the same reason I once adopted a Nubian goat. It must run in the family, which means my niece gets this from my sister. My sister, as you might have guessed, loves all little critters and was playing with it yesterday. She ...

Anybody who knows me knows I am not a big fan of sports. Any kind of sports. I rarely even watch the Olympics -- winter / summer or special. The big kahuna in baseball or football can pass me by annually and I don't blink an eye. I'm not that interested in men and women competing on a physical le...

When my husband first brought up the idea of going to Portland to see The Twilight Singers at the Wonder Ballroom, I turned him down. I said no because I knew I would be too darn busy at the end of May to go. Not everybody can say they are so busy in real estate right now because they are a Sacra...
