We are working on our second day in a row of 80 degree weather, the flowers are in bloom, and pollen is in the air.

visiting central oregon: Shop DownTown Redmond & Save 25%! DownTown Dollars - 04/05/09 02:45 AM
How can you support your local merchants and save money?
Redmond DownTown Dollars of course!

By now you're asking, "What the heck is a DownTown Dollar."
Here's the answer:  Redmond DownTown Dollars are printed "money" that can be purchased at Redmond City Hall.
Why would I do that?  To save 25% on anything purchased at participating merchants.
Redmond DownTown Dollars are sold at 75% of face value.  So $20 DownTown Dollars costs you a mere $15. 
So who are these "participating merchants"?  You might be surprised!  Click here for a complete list.

Redmond, Oregon of Course!  Home of Operation Santa Claus

It takes a lot of rest to be able to pull a sleigh and balance a set of antlers like that!

These guys are eating up to build their strength for the big day.

Time to practice take off (you know, Reindeer games).  On your mark, get set......

Huddle!  "Does everyone know the game plan and route?"

visiting central oregon: Holiday Starlight Parade - Downtown Redmond, Oregon (LOCALISM FEATURED) - 12/01/08 06:23 AM
Thanksgiving has barely passed and we just couldn't wait to usher in the Christmas Season!
What better way than Redmond's annual Holiday Starlight Parade!  The parade, held in Downtown Redmond, Oregon, starts at dusk and is filled with beautifully lit entries of all shapes and sizes.  Even the horses had twinkle lights!  Although I've lived in Redmond for eight years, this is my first Starlight Parade and I must say it couldn't have been a better first.  The weather was unseasonably warm with only a light jacket needed.  And just in case you got a little chilly, many local merchants had … (38 comments)

visiting central oregon: Sunny Central Oregon - 11/17/08 05:21 AM
It is a gorgeous day in Central Oregon!  For the second day in a row we can expect 70 degrees in mid November.  That is a special treat not to be wasted!  So what are the options?

How about a strenuous hike up Misery Ridge at Smith Rock State Park? Or take the kids on a bike ride through Redmond's Dry Canyon. The Deschutes River Trail is a great place for either a hike or a low key mountain bike ride. For a little more adventure on the mountain bike, try the Tumalo Falls Trail at Tumalo State Park.

So let me take you on a little tour and show you a few of my favorite places to visit.  Maybe you'll be convinced to take a trip of your own!

visiting central oregon: This Week at WineStyles of Redmond - Oct. 6th-12th - 10/07/08 05:30 PM

Last week I introduced you to one of our local gathering places, WineStyles of Redmond, which just happens to be in the same complex as my office, Desert Sky Real Estate, LLC.  With free wine tasting for Wine Club members, I find myself "next door" once or twice a week.  
One of the things I love is the "Cheers" feel you get when you walk through the door.  It is a rare occasion that I don't run into local friends and colleagues, or those I have met specifically through my wine tasting and live music adventures.
If you haven't … (0 comments)
