Everything’s Amazing…and Nobody’s Happy

Have all of you seen this? It was making the rounds on facebook this week and I thought it was hysterical! Here’s the thing…it’s completely true! Everything’s amazing right here on the Peninsula too…and it sure seems that nobody’s happy. Anyway…I’m crazy about this clip and Lewis CK (the comic here) and had to share it. Have […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 45

Well, here’s an office that I can clearly remember not wanting to go to! Now it seems rather innocent. The question this week is…where exactly is this office? If you’re the first to answer correctly you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Lucky’s at Edgewater Place…or wherever you may be for that matter. All the […]

Sleepy Town

Foster City sure seems quiet to me lately, downright asleep actually. Not a whole heck of alot is going on around here when it comes to single family home sales…that’s for sure. Right now there are 31 active single family homes in town and I have NO doubt that the inventory level is just the […]

How’s it Going?

If you’ve read this blog for awhile you’ve no doubt noticed the participation of the great and wonderful Steve Toler, Foster City’s director of Aministrative Services. Steve’s a really terrific guy and a few weeks ago he e-mailed me some information about the state of Foster City in this current downturn and I thought it […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 44

Sailing on into the weekend we have, for plenty of you I’m sure, a fairly easy one! The question? Where exactly is the “Home of Foster City Little League”? Yes, it’s safe to say we’re talking about baseball. (I say that because I seriously doubt whether my wife Lesley knows that!) . This week I’m […]

Insurance Pitfalls (Part 2)

    Continued from yesterday…   Two weeks to the day of cancelling his policy, he felt a lump in his neck…….cancer.  He began undergoing extensive radiation and chemotherapy, with a very dismal prognosis.  He also became ineligible for any type of life insurance.  He and his wife were looking at a future well beyond […]

Insurance Pitfalls

  “Making smart decisions that will not affect your family and their well-being in difficult times”   If you read the newspaper or turn on the television at all these days, it is impossible to escape the reports about the difficulties many people are facing today.  As an insurance professional, I have had countless customers […]

Also arriving on the scene with the correct answer was the ineligible Steve Toler, Bill Hastings, Archana, Erika,Rowena and Jeff Chu. Good job you guys! I thought this […]

Aunt Marta

My Aunt Marta died a few weeks ago, today there’s a memorial service for her in Foster City. I guess my family correctly figured Valentines Day would be perfect to honor her…she certainly was everybody’s Valentine. Marta was 92, and in every other instance that I can remember, when somebody passes at an age like […]
