If you're going to live in the San Fernando Valley, Sherman Oaks is one of the best cities to live in; I should know, I've been a resident for almost 20 years!  You can find affordable condos and townhomes for sale either side of "the boulevard" as it's known, and if you head south of the bouleva...
                      I took this photo this morning, initially because it caught my attention on my drive to the office.  I consider myself to be more spiritual than religious, but the sign made me think.  As self-employed people,  we like to believe we have good judgement but so often we are ou...
Bell Canyon equestrian community is a guard gated neighborhood offering custom built homes on minimum half acre lots, with property prices starting from $649,000. The scenery is breathtaking and there are miles of beautiful trails for the hiking and trail riding enthusiast, and a baseball diamond...
  Browsing through my closet lately I noticed I had many business outfits I no longer wear, mainly because they don't fit me any more!  A search online brought me to, which is an international non-profit organization committed to fulfilling the Dress for Success mission of...
Sometimes those opportunities for random acts of kindness or spontaneous pay it forwards don't come along regularly, so this morning, when I spotted a sign at my barn for a toy drive for needy children, I thought, aha, that's what I can do!  This week's pay it forward is a toy donation!  I know, ...
  On my way to a home inspection in Northridge this afternoon, I passed this sign and couldn't resist doubling back to take a photo!  Any questions?  No, I didn't think so! 
  Even if you don't know one end of a horse from the other, Grand Prix show jumping is an exciting spectator event and the rules are easy to follow.  This particular contest involves top class horses and riders jumping obstacles in excess of 4', and the goal is to clear the entire course of jumps...
I wrote an offer for my buyers last week; the purchase price offered was $65,000 less than the asking price but based on the comparisons for the area, it was a fair offer.  The big issue was, the seller was 83 years old and lived out of state and he didn't care about the comps and had already tur...
Scratching around for my Pay it Forward accountability group post for this week, I mew-sed on what I could do, so when I spotted a sign at my barn asking for pet food donations to the West Valley animal shelter, I sprang into action and went to the pet store to purchase a tray of cat food - just ...
    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!  Yes, I'm talking fashion, ladies: low-rise pants, short skirts, low cut tops, skinny jeans, high heeled boots, the list goes on.  Today I retired my low rise jeans; they are a size 2 and fit me just fine except ... for the muffin top thing going...
