What are you doing this evening on the 4th of July? Probably watching fire works, eating a lot and spending time with friends.  My 4th of July tradition includes all of these while watching firewords on the beach.  Except the fireworks for Marina del Rey beach have been canceled?!.  I'm so disappointed!!  I loved watching fireworks on the beach.  It's so beautiful with the ocean as a back drop.  Enough compaining, we are going to try a new fireworks spot.    The new spot is at Pacific Palisades High.  There is a concert of songs and sing alongs.  Band starts at 6:30pm and Fireworks 9:00pm.  I love this neighborhood too.  I'm sure it will be fun and beautiful.  However, if Marina del Rey decides to do fireworks next year--I'm in!  What are you doing to celebrate the 4th?

Open houses are buzzing with buyers in the Palisades, which is not the case in all communities. According to a recent Coldwell Banker ranking of North America's most expensive and most affordable housing markets, Pacific Palisades is the second most expensive market in the U.S. with an average property listing price of $1.6 million. Newport Beach took the top spot, with homes averaging nearly $1 million more than the Palisades. "We're a micro-market. We're not affected like many other areas of the country and also of this particular state," said Marco Rufo of Miramar Coastal Properties. "Fortunately, since January of this year to now, we've seen ... properties moving. ... There has been a decline in value over the year. However, at the current status that we are in, we are faring much ...
