The opening graphic for the June housing market report reflects a tiny bump in foreclosures.  Tiny because if you look historically, these are still very low Notices of Default.  In Arizona, a Notice of Default is issued when someone has missed three mortgage payments.  If the home owner misses three more mortgage payments, the home is officially listed as a foreclosure with the home will either be referred to HUD to sell, be sold at auction on the courthouse steps.  Either way, these numbers are still very low and should put rumors to rest about mounting foreclosures in the Phoenix metro area.  Active listings have increased significantly year over year, by 56%.  The number of active listings is still low by normal market standards.  A normal housing market in Phoenix would have DOUBLE...

Anytime you drive by the area of Yarnell, Arizona, and if you're from Arizona, you know the significance of this town and the tragedy of June 30, 2013.  That day nineteen hot shot firefighters lost their lives in a tragic fire that had overtaken the area.   The Yarnell fire started from a lightening strike and spread quickly due to monsoon winds, a seasonal occurrence in Arizona.  A crew of 20 hotshot firefighters trained for this type of fire assembled to battle the fire.  One of the firefighters separated early on as a lookout.  The fire took a deadly turn and 19 firefighters perished in what is considered the worst fire tragedy in Arizona history.  I remember vividly driving back from my hometown in Kansas, on the last leg of my 1000 mile drive on July 9, 2013.  As I made a left turn...

Well day 30 has arrived. My it went by fast. Once again, we have listened to some great music. I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane.If you have followed my Soundtrack over the years, it’s no secret that I enjoy duets, you will find several duets here on The Soundtrack.I think they are even more fun when the two partners are a mix of stars from different generations. It shows us how some songs can be timeless when properly arranged and performed by great artists.Everyone knows who Tony Bennett is, and what he brought to the music industry for over 80 years. Add an enormous talent like Lady Gaga to the song and you have a recipe for greatness.Lady Gaga and Tony got together again in October 2021 to record two music videos “I Concentrate on You”, and today's song “I Got You Under ...

 I received an article about the dog days of summer and how to survive them today.  I immediately thought, well, dogs don't like "summer days" in Arizona too much.  They are out with their owners early morn and after dark...our 100 degree temps aren't just hot - they are positively painful unless they are wearing protection on their feet!For a brief history lesson, the Farmer's Almanac offers a definition regarding the Dog Days of Summer: "This period of sweltering weather coincides with the year’s sunrise rising of Sirius, the Dog Star. Sirius is part of the constellation Canis Majoris—the “Greater Dog”—which is where Sirius gets its canine nickname"One of the suggestions mentions a poolside picnic, and another - a nature walk.  (Obviously, a NATIONAL article)I will say we enjoy an eve...

Today’s song likely has the most bizarre history of any song we have listened to on the Soundtrack so far.In 1970 folk music and the psychedelic sound crossed paths. Turning on, Tuning in, and Dropping out was the buzzword. Two folk/rock singers, Mike Brewer and Tom Shipley, were performing their upbeat protest songs to hippies across the country. A lot of the music and songs of the day centered around drugs and getting high. Their song One Toke Over the Line was a homage to getting high. Taking a toke meant taking a long drag on a marijuana cigarette.According to certain accounts, Mike Brewer said about the song. "One day we were pretty much stoned and all, and Tom says, ‘Man, I’m one toke over the line tonight.’ I liked the way that sounded and so I wrote a song around it."  The song ...
