carlsbad real estate agent: Ways To make The Most Of Your Carlsbad Backdyard Space - 05/31/15 05:54 AM
An anthropological UCLA study, described in the book “Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century,” blames our fascination with digital devices — tablets, computers, televisions, games — for keeping us cooped up. The UCLA research participants spent less than half an hour each week in their outdoor space. And these were Californians.

carlsbad real estate agent: Carlsbad Real Estate Size Trend Might Reverse…Eventually - 05/13/15 06:55 AM
