Waking up in Hawaii, listening to the birds sing and not hearing another sound is remarkable. No whiny cats. No world getting ready to go to work on this street. You know what's even more incredible? The fact that I was able to set up and use my new Keuric coffee machine without reading the manua...

 When I spent 6 weeks last winter in Kailua-Kona, I talked with a lot of people on the Big Island. They say the islands talk to you, and the Big Island, in particular, seems to speak to men more than women. Which is really unusual because my husband doesn't much care for the Hawaiian Islands. I'm...

 I really wanted to post a picture of me in a round metal barrow bathtub with my long dark curls as a baby, but it doesn't seem to be scanned on my computer so you get a recent shot instead. My sister took that photo with my cellphone when I was in Minneapolis a few weeks ago for my Aunt Dee's fu...

 The Sacramento Bee has a story in the local section this morning about dating and how some online profiles say if you're a Trump supporter, swipe left (instead of right, because right means you want to hook up).

Some condo complexes, it's easy to get lost driving in circles, especially when one does not consult the map at the entrance. Plus, I hav...

Sometimes statistics are analyzed to death and in doing so, say in movies, the purveyors of entertainment often remove the very essence of what makes shows entertaining to start with. The freshness, the newness, the ingenunity and creative approaches. I mean, don't you hate it when a movie follow...

 Franklin Crossing in Elk Grove is a newer subdivision of homes, typically built between 2011 and 2015. This cluster of newer homes is just south and a hair west of one of my favorite subdivsions in Elk Grove, near Bilby and Willard Parkways. If you are taking I-5 south from Sacramento, it's abou...

Selling homes in Elk Grove, or anywhere, for that matter, is all about compromise. It's not about being a bulldozer, as satisfying as that approach can be. It's about give and take. But don't make the mistake that compromise means 50 / 50 because it doesn't.Somebody I associated with a long time ...

This was one of those emergency listings in Sacramento. An emergency listing is when a seller calls, generally from out-of-area, and says she needs to put her home on the market right now. Well, she came to the right place; this Sacramento Realtor can accommodate. After all, we can sign all of ou...
