And The Winner Is…

I have to say, no matter how you look at it, we had one heck of a contest! I’m not all that sophisticated when it comes to all this technology and how to use and abuse it, but I understand Larissa’s comment last night because it sure did seem like a whole lot of votes, […]

A Little Bit of Stockton in Foster City

First of all…you can still vote until tonight at midnight. Just scroll down a little and you’ll find the voting booth, so to speak. Blog reader Jerry Freeman alerted me to this house that came up at 214 Turnstone and I think it’s worth mentioning. It’s also worth mentioning that I truly don’t know all […]

Vote for the Best Lights

{democracy:3} Trinidad Neptune Catamaran Drake Pitcairn Windjammer Edgewater   Well, here it is! Your chance to vote for the best Christmas Lights in Foster City. For closer inspection click on the thumbnails above for a larger view…or click on this link to see the full posts on each house. By the way, it’s one […]

Let There Be Light(s) 7

Last, but certainly not least, is the final entry in the 2008 Lights contest! It’s a really good one too! This house is located at 515 Pitcairn and is the product of the Wenzel family. It’s another classic of the form and has been among other showplace houses in the Bay Area in the past on […]

It’s a Wonderful (Subprime) Life

I’ve always been crazy about the classic 1946 Jimmy Stewart film “It’s a Wonderful Life”. I’m sure the vast majority of you know this flick…it’s on frequently at this time of year. In a nutshell, it’s the story of how an angel helps a compassionate but despairingly frustrated George Bailey (Stewart) by showing what life would had […]

Let There Be Light(s) 6

OK, we’re in the home stretch! Voting is coming on Friday…so get ready to rumble! Today’s entry is located at 503 Drake Ct and is the product of the Brannon family. The Brannon’s have a front yard made up pretty much entirely of small white stones…so it appears to be snow all the lights and decorations […]

Pompano Park

It’s just a little park, but because we’ve got some good friends that live on this street and we’ve spent plenty of time over the years either picnicing or playing games here, I thought it was worth including. This park is only 0.56 acres and is located in the middle of the big circle that […]

Let There Be Light(s) 5

 This house is also way, way up there on my list! It’s really an achievement, it’s located at 1052 Windjammer and it’s the product of the Yamauchi family. Check out all of this detail…all those small, lit Frosty’s and Santa’s between the Candy Canes along the front yard boundary. How about the walking Santa on the […]

Dead Cat Bounce

Not really…at least not this cat! The cat in question is the Foster City Real Estate market. That’s the Dead Cat Bounce I’m talking about…and maybe, just maybe it’s more than a dead cat bounce. What I’m talking about is the fact that in Foster City, in the last month 6 single family houses sold as […]

Let There Be Light(s) 4

So…this is beginning to get interesting! There sure were alot of folks supporting the McCarty/Kempton light show on Neptune the other day. Well now we have another very worthy selection, and this one is a whole lot easier to casually view as well! It’s the house at 1098 Edgewater , just down the street from the Edgewater […]
