I've got news for all you fans of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We've been lied to all these years. We, as busy people, tend to take whatever has been shoveled our direction as the truth -- like FOX News -- without ever thinking about it. With Goldilocks, what you have here are 3 hungry bears w...

I recall advice that somebody gave to me years and years ago about handling emotional upsets. Like, say, your partner up and walked out on your relationship. You're angry. You're hurt. You might want to get even. Do something hurtful back. But the advice that was given to me, which I'll pass alon...

When you're a woman of a certain age, nobody asks you how old you are anymore. Not even on your birthday. Which is today. And I am 59. Not quite the big 6-0 yet. I look in the mirror and wonder how I got here. One step at a time, I suppose. My sister sent me 2 birthday cards. Why do people do tha...

I was supposed to list a home in Rancho Covdova this weekend. But the seller of that short sale isn't quite ready yet, and she canceled our appointment. That's too bad because in another month, we'll be moving into the slower season. People think that selling in summer is the best time to put you...

I really dislike those who prey on the vulnerable. I don't care if it's senior citizens they're going after or 2-month-old babies, wounded dogs or unsupervised real estate agents, there is no excuse for doing it. Go pick on somebody who can fight back. Moreover, it makes me growl Grrrr when I see...

No, Kevin,  I do not want to work with your investor who wants to buy luxury short sales. The fact that you emailed me through ActiveRain this morning and that you are not a member of this community tells me you're probably spamming for business. I also thought it was a little odd that your IP ad...

Images are powerful. Some say they are more powerful than words. I suspect that's because you can twist around words in your head or forget words, but it's really hard to forget an image. I keep seeing that image embedded in my brain of the Emperor Penguin in New Zealand, standing on a sandy beac...

Unlike sellers who can choose which Sacramento short sale agent they hire, as an agent, we can't always choose who we get into a transaction with. Sometimes we get stuck with real doozies. When that happens, I try to tell myself that other people are basically innocent. They are only doing the be...

Air conditioning your home -- like buying frozen foods in my mother's time -- are things most people take for granted nowadays. To be without is pretty much unthinkable. You expect to find a package of frozen peas in the freezer just like you expect the AC to turn on when it gets hot. In fact, mo...

A reporter named Whitney Mountain (real name, not making that one up) wrote a story for the Sacramento Bee this morning about auto theft. Whit that says our Central Valley is the worst in the nation for auto theft. California has the highest rates in the country. Sacramento moved from ranking at ...
