Boar Statue in Sonoma Valley Wine Country  We've seen a number of boar statues on our travels, most of them in Italy. One was a very cool looking (as far as boars go) stuffed boar outside a butcher shop in the Piazza della Cisterna in San Gimignano, a very charming hill town in Tuscany and well worth a visit (we even had a boar dish at a local restaurant there, a common food in that area). We saw another in the town square in Greve in Tuscany, and no doubt others I am forgetting. This boar statue was at a beautiful winery in the Sonoma Valley about 7 years ago - I believe it was the Viansa Winery.

How Far Would YOU go for a Wine Tasting?  We enjoyed 2 wonderful days exploring Napa and Sonoma wine country back in 2010. It wasn't nearly enough time, but we covered a lot of territory and enjoyed some terrific wineries.  The Larson Family Winery is located on Sonoma Creek in Sonoma, down a country lane. We were greeted by this sign a short distance before the winery came into view and had to chuckle.

There is always something fun to do in Sonoma, even when it's raining. And it rained pretty much all day yesterday. Which meant it was a perfect day to undertake a Sonoma wine country tour. We joined a group of 10 people. One coupled hailed from New York City, so they were struggling with the time zone change. Another came from Los Angeles area, there was a guy from England who now lives in Austin with his girlfriend from San Francisco, and I think the last couple were from around these parts. You know how it is when you live somewhere and you never go to visit the things that area is known for, right? Like the guys from New York City had never been up in the Empire State Building. Heck, until I went back to Minneapolis a few years ago, I had never toured the Foshay Tour, either, which ...

How many meals on Thanksgiving can one person consume? I hope never to have to answer that question again because it is becoming apparent to me that the older we get, the less we can eat. Why, yes, my eyes are bigger than my stupid little head. And I could have very easily not walked by the dessert smorgasbord more than once, too. But for some reason, we thought we should make reservations at two separate restaurants for two meals yesterday, just in case we don't starve to death. You can read more in my personal blog today about our Thanksgiving trip in Sacramento Real Estate and Sonoma Square Portals.

Seems like it  keeps growing... one day we heard there were 200 and the next day it as 617, now it is over a thousand and that may not be the end. I know I just found a crack at my house and I'm located fifteen miles away from the epicenter less than ten miles as the crow flies. It is a small hairline crack but it wasn't there before the quake.  Some of the damage is severe but most of the damage seems to be fallen fireplaces, in some cases fireplaces that should have been removed after the quake of 2000 per one of the victims.  Our Napa Earthquke Workshop seems to be a big hit We are actually helping people now and it feels great. We are anxious to get the next one going to help more people. We now have just over 200 that we are following up with to see what can be done for each one on...

FHA 203k and mold issues in Sonoma Mold can become an issue anywhere but this particular issue came up in Sonoma. there is rarely an issue that can't be repaired. Though I have seen three homes in my career that were burned in place due to mold issues. This home was being shown with the mold removed as seen in these photos        Most mold issues can be repaired and quite nicely.  If you have a listing that has mold issues, it is simply an FHA 203k or FNMA HomeStyle loan, it is not a lost cause and we can bring that home back into production. Your home inspector NEVER kills a deal, they merely help you identify when the financing should be 203k.
