If you are a fan of true crime, specifically of serial killers, this is a must-read book for you.
Terror in Ypsilanti John Norman Collins Unmasked by Gregory A. Fournier
 a book review.
 
As a bit of background, I seldom read non-fiction books. That said, this book was gifted to me by one of Diane’s Goodreads online reader friends, a woman who hails from Michigan and who knew that I attended Eastern Michigan University (EMU) for two semesters from 1972-1973.  While I was waiting for my US Citizenship papers and subsequently hearing whether I would be accepted into the U.S. Air Force Academy or the U.S. Military … (14 comments)

Wordless Wednesdays: Life of Holly in a pet friendly home... As a pet friendly Realtor in Los Angeles, I not only talk a good game, but I practice what I preach. 
Now with that said how many homes can show pictures of their dog being sandwiched by two cats one on each side. Now in all fairness she does not seem that thrilled but clearly does not mind.
 
On a side note, they all end up in bed with us and I am glad we have a King Sized bed.

Do you like to read?  Do you love a good page turner, a book that will make you want to stay up all night and hole up all weekend to read?  If yes, then have I got a book recommendation for you.  The Exile is my fourth book by author Allan Folsom; the first three I read were The Day After Tomorrow, The Machiavelli Covenant and Day of Confession.   I loved all of them.  For no good reason, I went on a book sabbatical, just not having the motivation or the … (23 comments)

Throwback Thursdays: sometimes I have to check on my Real Estate Signs...
Sometimes, I find it is important to take a tour and look at my Real Estate Signs. Some neighborhoods I do not even put up a sign because I know that the neighbors think by knocking down my sign, I will not be able to sell it and they do not have to worry about someone building near their home...
Yes, it does sound strange when we have all the internet portals some neighbors still think that only the sign will sell the property. How naive, anyway, then again there are … (38 comments)

endre barath: Monday Observations: quotes from Julia Child..... - 02/12/24 10:13 PM
Most of you who read my posts, know I focus on Real Estate, and the rest of the time I focus on cooking and eating good food.
When we visit our doctor for our annual checkups, we discuss, that there is hardly any salt on the menu and there is always a balanced gourmet meal on the table.
Well, there are times when there is nothing but a good healthy soup. Might not be gourmet, but very tasty and healthy.
 
"...I think one of the terrible things today is that people have this deathly fear of food: fear of eggs, say, or fear of … (21 comments)

endre barath: Speechless Sundays: Crescent Rolls with a twist - 02/11/24 09:43 PM
I had some left-over Fried Onion Pieces from Trader Joe's since Thanksgiving, hence I searched high and low on the internet for some recipes. Well, I found a Crescent Roll recipe. I happen to have a roll in the fridge, so I made it into my version.
Real simple take the Crescent rolls and place some Friend Onion Pieces on the dough and roll it up. I used a lot less than what the recipe called for just to be cautions and I am glad I did.
Then the recipe called for an egg wash on top, I did not think that was … (26 comments)

Just wanted to wish you all a Happy Lunar New Year 2024 also known as the year of the Dragon.
 
The Lunar New Year is a time of celebration and renewal in Chine’s culture. I always enjoyed the animal signs and what I have read is that on February 10th, 2024, we will enter the Year of the Wood Dragon.
Some of you might know that, unlike in the solar calendar, which has fixed dated every month, the lunar calendar’s dates vary depending on the phases of the moon. In other words, the beginning and end of each year will not always coincide … (23 comments)

What to do on a Sunday afternoon while the Atmospheric River is raging through the Greater Los Angeles area? Well, I decided to make "sauce" (Italian Pasta Sauce) and use my leftover frozen Turkey Meatballs with some Spaghetti Squash.
I would have posted about it yesterday, but the platform was not permitting me to do so.
Now with that said, to make the Sauce is a three-to-four-hour project. Most of my readers have seen me write about it. I should look for the old recipe and link it to my post here.
Hence while I was working on the Sauce, I thought this would … (11 comments)
