lodi: Goal Setting For a Happy New Year 2014 - 01/02/14 10:39 AM

It is a New Year and a new chance to make those resolutions for the upcoming year of all the things we’d LIKE to do with good intentions, but sometimes we don’t follow through with them.  (present company included)
In 2013 the Top 5 New Year’s resolutions were…
Eat healthy and exercise regularly Learn something new Better work/life balance Get organized (My main one this year) Save money I’m sure that most, if not all, of these were on all of our lists for last year as well as even this year.  These resolutions seem to be the most popular year after … (2 comments)

lodi: Lodi, CA Annual Parade of Lights - 12/17/13 12:27 PM
Every year the annual Parade of Lights in downtown Lodi draws a very large crowd all through the streets.  Chairs are lined up for several blocks and many are placed along the sidewalks hours in advance and some even the night before.
There are many floats, trailers, tractors, cars, trucks, etc., all decorated and lit up with lights from many schools, organizations, and businesses.
This year I was honored to have a table & chairs reserved for my guests, and my son and I out in front of The Rusted Mic Entertainment House & Bistro.
It was very cold out last … (0 comments)

lodi: 5 Reasons There Are Fewer Homes For Sale in Lodi & Stockton Areas - 03/02/13 02:39 PM
Home prices are increasing across the country as the number of homes for-sale continues to fall. But at a time when buyer demand is picking up, why is inventory still so low?
Inventories fell to 1.82 million at the end of last year, a 21.6 percent drop from one year earlier, the National Association of REALTORS® reports.
The Wall Street Journal recently highlighted several reasons behind the dropping inventories, including:
Sellers hesitant to sell: About 22 percent of home owners with a mortgage are still underwater, owing more than their home is currently worth. Home owners don’t tend to sell unless a … (2 comments)

lodi: Become a Preferred Buyer - 11/02/12 07:52 AM
Become a Preferred Buyer When you begin house-hunting in Lodi and Stockton, CA areas, it will help you narrow down the homes that you consider if you know how much you can afford to pay. You can do that by getting pre-qualified, or you can take the process one step further by getting pre-approved.
Many people get confused by these terms and think they mean the same thing, when actually they are quite different. Being pre-qualified doesn't mean that you have a commitment from a lender; it's merely an indication of how much home you can afford. The pre-approval process, on … (5 comments)

lodi: Here We Grow With a New Costco...In Lodi, CA! - 03/22/11 12:33 PM

I’ve lived in and around Lodi, CA for a very long time and it’s not too often that we have a lot of options when it comes to shopping. Oh, we have our much loved Kohl’s, Target, and Wal-Mart, but just shy of venturing out to the malls in Stockton, Modesto or Sacramento, sometimes I’d like a little variety.
Well here it comes in the form of a brand new Costco being built in the Reynolds Ranch area of Lodi at the corner of Harney Ln and Hwy 99 Frontage Rd.
I’ve even heard that there may be a Best Buy … (4 comments)

lodi: New Year's in Paris? I Don't Think So! - 12/31/10 10:55 AM
It would be So awesome to be able to spend New Year's Eve in Paris under the Eiffel Tower one year. 
I've also wanted to even drudge through Times Square on this eventful night, but that might be a nightmare in the making.
But since we found out our daughter has Uveitis, which is an inflammation of the inner eye, it looks like we'll be spending the evening at home putting in special eye drops every waking hour as prescribed by the ophthalmologist this week.  It was pretty painful for her at first as well as sensitivity to light, which … (3 comments)

lodi: Strawberries, Pumpkins, and Bagels, Oh My! And a Squirrel? - 09/09/10 08:31 PM
If you're fortunate enough to have a local farmers market where you work and/or live, then congrats to you!  Make sure then that you visit it and visit it often. 

Well, I'm lucky enough to not only have a local downtown farmer's market in town, but it's actually only 4 blocks from my office.  So, I decided to take a quick break earlier this evening and stroll on down there and see what was fresh.  Uh, just about EVERYTHING!  I mean, that IS the whole idea isn't it? 
I tasted a few different products such as black bean spicy hummas, … (6 comments)
