One of our holiday traditions since I was a little kid, was to drive around before Midnight Mass to see all of the holiday lights on the homes of those who really go all out for Christmas. My kids always enjoyed it too, but back in the day, you had to stumble upon those houses, hear about them from a neighbor, or once in a while, see listings of those noteworthy addresses in the local paper. Now, there’s a one-stop shop for finding visual delights for your holiday touring. For lights in the Livermore Valley, check out these links for the various cities: Livermore Pleasanton Dublin San Ramon Danville For us, it’s just not Christmas without a visit to Deacon Dave’s in Livermore. Based on the lines to get in front of the place (you actually walk onto the property, and wind your way through...

  Anything You Bring Me Santa Will Be Fine! Today I had the opportunity to play Santa Clause at a local real estate office, Better Homes and Gardens in Livermore, CA.  Since Santa is very busy this time of year, they needed a stand-in.  When I was asked a month or so ago by Sophie Aretta, the Sales Manager of the office, I was hesitant at first as I had never played Santa, not like this anyway. When I was in my late 20’s, as a sales manager I played Santa for a computer store commercial, but that was different.  I also had my own Santa Clause suit when my step-daughters were young and I played Santa for the family or for Halloween.  I’m sure that confused some neighborhood kids!  But that too was different. This time I was playing Santa ‘for real’, standing in for the big guy!  The chil...
