The Sweet Nothing of Sundays-3Shhhh, I’m doing Sunday, My Silent Sunday.No Phone, No Text, No Emails, No Meetings...Silence. A view from "The Bench"Today is a day I value being benched.Sundays are for quiet reflection, relaxing and recharging in my world.They are a day with the family and friends, investing in the relationships dearest to me.Pursuing my personal goals, enjoying my hobbies or the sweet joy of doing nothing but relaxing in the sun, with a good book on a bench with a view.  The value of a precious day off:Time away from clients; time with family & friends.Showing up to work Monday with the best of you, not what's left of you.Time to engage your goals, hobbies and interests.Time to give back to others; causes and social outreach.Time to do nothing at all!The Joy of Doing No...

My title says La Jolla, CA but in fact all of San Diego County feels that way; the supporters do.I drive by this memorial almost daily, it peeks at me from it's perch, high above Highway 5 ... In La Jolla, CA there stands a cross, a memorial to our military atop Mount Soledad with views like none other in San Diego County. You can see Downtown and beyond to Mexico to the South, Carlsbad to The North, all of the big blue Pacific and La Jolla to the West and we can pratically see Arizona to the East!                              Downtown San Diego & Tijuana Hills                Scripps Pier, La Jolla through Carlsbad, CA The memorial while seems to predominantly, but not exclusively, pay tribute to our WWII veterans; it actually pays tribute to all our American soldiers from the Revolutio...

In order to be a real estate brand, you have to understand what a brand is, what it means to the public and especially your clientele. When I think of the brands I trust, my go to choices - so to speak, I've learned a lot about creating my own brand through reflection upon why I palce so much value & trust in those I choose to align myself and my business with. Three of non-Real Estate brands I trust and admire are: Virgin America and the entire Virgin brand represents quality, cutting edge services and products. Richard Branson is a brand genius; he actively creates his brand as a walking, talking stunt pulling marketing machine. His #1 strategy; creating Wow! Every day, he expects his employees to create it for Virgin customers and re-invent it often to attract future Virgin customers...

Ini Mini Miny Mo: How To Hire A Realtor ® in San Diego, CAWe are not all the same. We have varied skills, training and experience and personalities need to match-chemistry needs to be there.You Realtor can end up being a great relationship in your life, like the family doctor; you may not always need us, but isn't nice to know that we're there when you do? And we know you and how best to serve you too!First and foremost, this advice may possibly work in other parts of CA and the US & Canada too! I also emphasize hiring a Realtor®. There are as many sales agents and licensee's that do not belong to the National Association of Realtors®, as do belong to NAR; only a member can be called a Realtor®. To me it matters because of the Realtor Code Of Ethics; they represent that I plan to be com...

La Jolla Cove One of my favorite hangouts is La Jolla Cove. Especially when the surf is crashing in, it actually splashes the pathway above the coastline. La Jolla Cove has a large grass area for picnics, sports, naps and people watching. I often flop and read my books there or walk my dog  in the cove.  It has a nice walking path for exploring and taking in the views. You have beach access on both sides of the park, (Shell Beach to the south and The Cove to the North) and if you are up for the walk, The Children's Pool doubles as refuge for the seals/sea lions and offers a walkway out into the crashing waves.        They host concerts here, a big July 4 fireworks show and many other social functions; even weddings. The cove is a protected marine reserve, so the snorkeling and diving is...

Looking back on 2016, La Jolla, CA had a roller coaster rise to new heights. It didn't always feel like a climb, but climb we did and then ended the year with a natural December slow down.

2016 Annual La Jolla Cove Swim Club Polar Bear Swim - La Jolla Shores I admire those who jump in the cold ocean in the middle of winter, or parade around on a chilly beach in a bathing suit. Not for me! And while they call it the Polar Bear Swim diehards from much colder states – I’m thinking MN, WI, ND for example -  might scoff. But it’s all relative, and still a shock for the system! Sunday January 1st is the date for the annual La Jolla Cove Swim Club Polar Bear Plunge, accompanied by chili (suggested), soup and perhaps other warm foods as a complement, with cider and coffee to be provided.  The polar bear plunge is held at Kellogg Park in La Jolla Shores to the north of La Jolla Cove, and is for La Jolla Cove Swim Club (LJCSC) members only. I would think it could be fun to watch – ...
