So it's raining and you want to go look at houses?

Bully for you because the best time to go looking for your new home is always when it is raining! For one thing -buyers can make sure there are no leaks in the roof-tops of their dream homes. If there are leaks, never fear, just use the condition to get yourself a better deal. It's also a good time to take advantage of reduced competition since the less-hearty home shoppers will no doubt elect to stay home!

The one thing I do strongly suggest is that you make sure your Realtor brings plenty of umbrellas for everyone and hot chocolate! OK - see you out in the rain! Wait... your not going out dressed like that are you?! And just where is your hat and galoshes?    
Wow - sorry, just had a flash back there. But now that I'm thinking... who even wear galoshes anymore? Have a great day folks!

What To Do With All Those Grass Clippings?

Ever walk around the back yard thinking that there should be a better way of getting rid of leaves, grass clippings and even leftover food scraps? If so - I present the City of Burbank's free composting workshops! Have fun combining green waste and food scraps into a healthy composting  mixture you can use to improve the soil in your garden and flower beds.

The next workshop is scheduled for this coming Saturday, February 5th 10 -11:30am at the Burbank Adult School  -  3811 Allan Ave. Burbank, CA. All workshops are free and all Burbank residents who attend will receive a free composting bin - valued at $100!
