Well I'm finally back from my holiday centric vacation just in time for yet another holiday! The end of the year is upon us with New Years being just days away. Actually I haven't taken a real vacation in more than 15 years, pretty much since I became a licensed agent. It felt weird and good at the same time. With the fire in Santa Barbara and the Christmas holiday, there was not much going on so it was the perfect time to be gone and not miss anything. A great time was had by all my family as we gathered at our vacation home in northern California. Above is a photo of me and my daughter Seana with one of our many dogs, Maus (and yes, he is puppy hell on wheels!). We had just taken the dogs swimming in the creek which runs at the bottom of my property. Its 7 hours away so I don't get to visit as often as I would like but the rest of my family use it all the time. It is a well loved and magical place. We had the time to count them ..... 60 oak trees on my parcel. Believe me, the tree trimmers up there love me! That's a lot of oak trees! Some babies, some ancient. Here is a hint I learned .... in northern California, buy in the oaks. Oaks don't live in snow. I can drive to snow in about 10 minutes but not a flake lands on my property i.e. no snow plowing, shoveling or melting. In fact ski season is under way in the Tahoe area though I didn't see a whole lot of the white stuff on the ground. I did however drive by Boreal and it was packed ... guessing man made snow in case you are looking for some. Whatever you get up to this holiday, skiing or otherwise, have fun! I'll be back here on Tuesday when all the offices open back up with more news. Stay safe out there. Happy New Year!
