The 2009 15th Annual Partners Challenge Ride (and Weekend Get-Away) has been set this year for the weekend of September 26-27.   This 2-day, 104-mile mountain bike ride is truly challenging, but a lot of fun, traversing some of the most spectacular mountain terrain and scenery in the country.   I...

I was pleasantly surprised to see an upsurge in real estate activity, beginning in April.  I thought it might be just a fluke, but I'm happy to report, since then, we've been experiencing a steady flow and increase in activity, by which I mean more buyers are looking, more buyers are buying, and ...

I must admit I was a bit skeptical the first time I was encouraged to attend a performance of the Montrose Magic Circle Players.  I love legitimate theater and was quite spoiled having grown up in San Diego County with incredible live theater venues, like the Old Globe Theater and La Jolla Playho...
