Crazy English: Oh boy I can relate to this one. FYI one of our Active Rain friends recently posted about this very subject. So with that said I had to grab the book that has been sitting on top of all the other books waiting  for me to read.... (Keep in mind I had the book since 1989). I guess it is never too late to pick it up for the second time. Interestingly, then to boot I had cut out an article in 1996 that Ann Landers wrote and was inside the book. Well see for yourself...Ironically I had a Yellow Sticky Note, from the last time I picked up the book to this quote:..."In 1750 Phillip, Fourth Earl of Chesterfield, wrote, in a letter to his son, "One false spelling may fix a stigma upon a man for life" If Lord Chesterfield's chilling dictum is true all of us are stigmatized, for who...

Having the right tools in any profession is critical for success... Having been a Realtor for 27+ years, I managed to keep up with the newest and best tools of the trade. I started out with an office phone and a secretary taking messages. Then graduate to beepers, suitcase phone etc. Now having a smart phone that has everything would be difficult to imagine living and working without.Now with that said I have been wanting to improve my kitchen skills and have been telling Diane I need a better way to slice and dice my vegetables. Look what she surprised me with yesterday:)))Now how long do you think it will take before I try it out and use it???  Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Some Days are easier than others, there are positive  explanations we might just not know why...Today was a relaxing and easy day for me when it comes to Real Estate. The stars were in line  to give me an easy day. So, what did I do? Very little if you asked me… The noise and the chatter around me were muted by my classical radio station that I have been listening to 24/7 for decades.Yesterday I went shopping for great food. Diane asked what do I want to do for dinner? She was prepared to take me out, meaning that she would cook.I heard horror stories about upscale restaurants being understaffed and over worked. Translation mediocre to lousy service, average food, and expensive prices. Hence, I opted not to do that, instead I wanted to stay home and make our own meal.Keep in mind, mothe...

 As a Realtor in Los Angeles I often go on listing presentation, yes being in the business for 25 years in the local market this is not unusual. I was given a referral lead where the client was considering listing and selling her home.Well I got there and she informs me that there was an agent that told her that he had a buyer who missed out on many opportunities because they got out bid....Now with that said I was asked what the value of her home was, I was about $25-$50k above the offer price. I could have had the listing if I used Real Estate Poetry and said their house should be listed $150k above the price... but I did not.  So with that said who will get the listing? Stay tuned. No I did not get the job yet... time will tell    Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forwar...

Holly and I walk our neighborhood twice a day... sometimes we see wonderful and happy events other times we are sad what we see. Well you tell me with these photos....I am sure our friends Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  would feel the same way as Holly and I did. Love to hear their input. Now this one was heart wrenching for me to see not alone to post...WHY? I just want to go knock on their door and ask WHY??? The trees must have been there 50 years or longer. The shade they provided was keeping Global Warming in check.... I hope it is not because of SB9 & SB10.... Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

 Many people all over the Globe are not familiar with ‘Columbus Day’. Reason being, it is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492, and Columbus Day 2021 occurs on Monday, October 11. So, someone who came to the United States from a Communist Hungary, I always loved celebrating Columbus Day. After all, it is the holiday honoring Columbus’ achievements  coming from Europe to the United States.Many people are not aware that Columbus Day was unofficially celebrated in several cities and states as early as the 18th century but did not become a federal holiday until 1937.So with this historical Trivia wishing you a Happy Columbus Day! Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Gift from a friend... not all gifts are created equal:)))) Diane received a gift from a friend of hers. It was her birthday and needless to say the friend heard that Diane and another friend put together a puzzle one afternoon in our back yard.Keep in mind Diane told the story about the 300 peace puzzle and how challenging it was. Needless to say the present she received was a 1000 peace puzzle.Her local friend is traveling so she could not help. Look who decided to help her. Looks like a great team effort. Stay tuned for further updates:)))Now in all fairness Diane is so competitive that I am sure in spite of the challenges she will put it together in no time.  Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Shake and Bake, OK it is not a recipe from the Gourmet Realtor in Los Angeles…rather it is about another earthquake in Los Angeles!!!Last night, we were having dinner at home and low and behold there was a Shaker… It got the attention not only of me and Diane, but two out of the four of our animals. The time was around 7:58 pm, in case you are wondering, this is usually when we are in the beginning or middle of our evening meal, depending on how the animal feeding goes.This was a good one, ten miles from our home in Carson, CA the Google App reported that it was a 4.7 shaker. I said to Diane, don’t worry, they usually downgrade it after a few hours. Sure, enough it was downgraded to a 4.5 shaker.Gratefully we were far enough away that all it did was make my  CD player shake and skip and...
