I am a retired Greater Sacramento Realtor. My career spanned 40 years beginning in 1981, and ending in 2021. MY INTERESTS & HOBBIES: In addition to family activities, I am active in a Sacramento history group, and a local Sacramento area genealogy group. I actively research several family names. I also have a special love of cooking. For several years, I worked at an international software development company, which was represented by people from all over the globe. During that time, I was fortunate enough to learn special recipes from a number of them. They include, Indian, Caribbean, Spanish, Italian, Mexican, Romanian, Hungarian, Irish, and Carolina "Low Country" recipes. I have developed a special interest in mixing certain recipes from varying ethnic groups to create unique recipes and combinations not usually seen. Another of my favorite pastimes is gardening. And, I often find myself spending hours in my garden, and wondering where time has gone! I am interested in photography and cameras. This interest began as a child, and has remained and was perpetuated in my Real Estate career, family activities, and travel. Last but not least, I enjoy travel - both foreign and domestic.

I must confess I was born under a wanderin’ star! Because of that, I often feel blessed living in Sacramento.  There are so many wonderful places to visit within a couple hours of home. I am fortunate to be within 100 miles of San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, Napa Wine Country and California Gold Count...

 I woke early this morning (4:15 am).  Too lazy to get out of bed, but too awake to return to sleep, I turned on the TV.  Today, Netflix released the movie, “Where the Crawdads Sing.” The flick centers on the life of Catherine Danielle Clark (nicknamed “Kya” also known as “Marsh Girl”). Kya is in...

Temps in Sacramento have been especially pleasant. Yesterday, after finishing a gym session, my brain must have performed the equivalent of a butt dial, because instead of heading home, my car veered right, and quickly found its way onto Highway 50 headed east toward Apple Hill.Apple Hill is a pl...

One of my favorite places in Greater Sacramento for family gathering is El Tapatio in the community of Citrus Heights. Last evening, my daughter, Jill's birthday gave reason for us to find way there once again. Good food, live meandering guitars, and each other's company made it all really speci...

It's a quiet Sunday evening at my house. Not a whole lot is going on. I thought about going to the Greek Food Festival in town, but was afraid I'd be too tempted to dance. I did cook up a pleasant little supper though. It consisted of Broiled Lobster Tails with Lemon Butter and Garlic. There was...

While pondering which experience to reveal in the ActiveRain Crazy Real Estate Agent Story Challenge this month, I had many  old memories surface from my 40 years as a real estate agent.  In last month’s challenge, I told the tale of listing the home of an elderly couple who had a very abusive ad...
