It's funny though how something so small can actually require a decent amount of skill to use. Back ...

Now isn't this the coolest garage door.  I'm sure it's a one of a kind.  It so matches the yard.  They have this parklike front yard too.  If you want to see it in person, go to the community center in Ripon.  It's across the street from the tennis courts.  If it's a hot day, hopefully their kids...

I often get the question from new buyers to the Ripon, "What is the climate of Ripon CA like?". My response is usually the same.  It can be hot in the summertime (80 to 100 degrees or so) & then the winter (50 to 60 degrees).  That is because I live here.  I got to thinking that clients need the ...

Pay it Forward ~ picked up yucky trash at our local Veteran's Park in Ripon.  Today I just had to do it.  My son was so worried that I was going to get a disease from picking up garbage.  It was a small gesture to pick up the garbage.  Wads of toilet paper were in the baseball area of this park. ...
