Boonville’s a Century Late, But…

On Tuesday evening, January 29, 2019, I attended a “Boonville Planners” meeting regarding the water and sewer project for the town of Boonville. The project has been in the works for about four years, although the idea has been around since the 1950s. This current iteration was prompted by Frank Wyant who was frustrated that […]

Fair, Not Falling & Fall Again

The County fair two weekends ago was a fun one; the nicest weather in a long while for the fair was enjoyable too. My husband and I went down on Friday evening and explored as much as possible in a few hours – this means we saw the ag building, the arts building and the […]

Going to LA for WomanUP!®

I’m going to WomanUP!® in LA this week.  I haven’t done anything like this in a long time; in fact, not since I worked at Century 21 and went to a one-day event.  That was about eight years ago, so perhaps I’m due?  The California Association of Realtors® is hosting this event.  It’s for women brokers […]

Infrastructure? For Boonville?

Yes. Eventually. An actual water and sewage disposal system is well into the planning stages, and we learned last Thursday evening (June 7th) where it all is in the process at a meeting of the people planning this project for the Anderson Valley Community Services District (CSD). This meeting included members of the CSD; members […]

To Philly & New York

I had a wonderful trip to Philly and New York. It started out a little rough as I missed my flight out of SF at 8:30am – there was a lot more traffic than I expected. However, I did safely make it to Philadelphia around 11:30pm. I took my first Lyft ride with a nice […]

Visiting Friends In New York & Philadelphia

Later this week I’m flying to Philadelphia to visit friends that just moved there from Brittany, in France.  Then I’ll be driving up to New York with another friend from Philly to spend the weekend with a bunch of gals I went to Fordham with.  We all turn(ed) 50 this year and we’re gathering to […]

Paris to Boppard

The room — Our trip, what I’m calling our European Adventure, began on the 30th of May with our flight to Paris. This segment of the trip is from Paris to Boppard. That morning we drove to the airport arriving in plenty of time; we made our way through security, though not without Van getting […]

Water & Sewer In Boonville

Last Thursday evening two engineers from Brelje & Race, Consulting Civil Engineers out of Sonoma County, met with a group of local folks calling themselves the Boonville Planners. The engineers are Dave Coleman and Jack Locey; Mr. Coleman spoke on the prospective sewer system and Mr. Locey on drinking water. Members of the local group […]

Mike

I do not actually remember when I first met Mike.  It seems like I have always known him and Sharon; they have been fixtures in the community for as long as I can remember.  If Mike was here I might ask him if he remembers when we first met, but that boat has sailed. Mike […]

AV Rents & Wages

A few weeks ago a client asked me to fill a rental vacancy for her.  I posted the home on Craigslist and on the local Facebook page for Anderson Valley, Boont-Swap. A bit of a verbal dust-up ensued because one person commented about what she perceived as the high cost of rentals in the Valley. […]
