I flew home on Southwest.  Standard procedure is that the early birds take either the asle or window seat.  My standard procedure is to take the first seat available that looks promising.   On my first plane I had a very nice conversation with a lady going to Chicago who was traveling with an eld...
Today I come back to Boise!   I am coming home on a jet plane.   I always like coming home.   This time I did not rent a car so being home will be liberating.  I can also implement the business plan I laid out while I have been gone.    I am home one week before my hubby takes his turn in Washing...
When I first arrived in Boise we had just a handful of non American restaurants.  To be sure there were a few ethnic restaurants but they were few and far between.  We seemed to be a meat and potato kind of town.   Fast forward 25 years later.  We now have lots and lots of eateries of almost ever...
I thought I had seen it all.  I have been attached to academics for my whole life.   The University of Idaho is going to offer a Pokemon go class for college credit. is good people are moving...
When I list a home I place a home warranty on it.  It's free for the listing.   I usually leave it up to the buyers on whether they wish to continue.   The first thing to consider is the obvious.  Not all home warranties are created equal.  Recently I have been using  Summer Sweeny of Landmark Ho...

I am a scientist by training and have been using computers my whole life of 54 years.  I used to be pretty tech savvy before they developed the word networking.  I graduated from computers the size of buildings to the tiny computer that I call my phone.  As soon as I had my first listing I purcha...
   Today is the 47 th anniversary of the moon landing.   I remember sitting on the floor in my parent's bedroom to watch it on the TV.   It was very exciting!   It was also late that is why we were on my parents floor camping.   I was just a kid.  I always thought we would go to Mars then  space....
 One of the great pass times in Boise during the summer is floating the Boise river.  You can do it in a inner tube, a raft, a kayak, a canoe.    The water is slow with just a little excitement.  You start at Barber Park in the east end of town and float several miles to Ann Morrison park.  You s...
There are not many inexpensive homes these days.  Just for fun I did a search today and found 23 homes in Boise.  Nine of these homes are condominiums.  Five of the homes are manufactured homes on their own lot.  One is a townhouse.  Eight are stick built homes.   A few years ago  I could find 3 ...
