Living In Santa Clarita

Tidbits on Santa Clarita

The Feds trying to help people from foreclosure…what a concept!

Here is an article from that mentions how federal officials are issuing a few new rules to help people from going into  foreclosure. In my opinion this is a bit on the late side as the real estate market has shifted and is now positive. Would have been nice oh say 3-4 years ago! Guess we can’t be fussy and have to take what we are given.

it’s been way to long…

It has been since Oct 8, 2012 since my last post… way to long. I let this go. This blog was a dream of mine to be able to post information of sorts with my own style, my own flair. I am the CEO, The Editor in Chief, and I let it go. 

Well one of my goals this year is to bring my blog back to life.  I really love to write. I was an editor of a college newspaper back in the day and really enjoyed journalism. Sports or news it didn’t matter. I even had my own opinion column. That was before the internet became the warm glow we all love and depend on now.

I will start today and continue moving forward with this blog day by day and watch it grow.

I am a real estate agent so I will post about real estate from time to time but also about things to do or that are going on in Santa Clarita Valley. 

Being a spandex cyclist I get around town a lot. I am averaging about 300-500 miles a month. So I do spend quite a bit of time on my bicycle riding around Santa Clarita!

I do subscribe presently to 153 blogs. So don’t be surprised if I mention or quote a blog from time to time. I find reading blogs more interesting then reading the news. I have blog friends from all over the world! I find most of the news to be negative and depressing these days more so then ever.

Well I guess I will stop tapping on the keyboard for now and go read a few blogs!
