FEMA And The Flood Zone

Seems like ages since this whole discussion about flood insurance and FEMA began, doesn’t it? Well it came to light last week that the City of San Mateo has largely completed it’s project of fixing the levees that separate that town from Foster City and they have appealed to FEMA to request that these communities […]

Working The Plan

For a long time it’s appeared to me that large expenditures on renovation or remodeling were kind of unnecessary when getting one’s place ready to sell. It came as no surprise to me then when I saw Forbes Magazine run a segment on the 20 best and worst home improvements for the buck and almost all […]

The Geese

In the last few years it sure seems like I hear a fair amount of discussion about the geese around this community. I also hear incredibly passionate arguements from folks that don’t like the large goose population and plenty of opposing points of view by folks that love these birds and will seemingly defend them […]
