Truth is, I’ve been a tech migrator for most of my adult life, gladly picking up and moving for different opportunities throughout my career. Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York… and most recently back to SF to work at one of the big Silicon Valley tech companies. Flying above the San Francisco skyline But, it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. SF had changed, A LOT, in the four years I was away.

    The Super Bowl of Fed meetings is only three weeks away. As you get the office pool together, there’s good news today on the mortgage rate watch. The average cost of a 30-year, fixed-rate loan hit its lowest since May, coming in at less than four percent for the fifth week, according to Freddie Mac. We all know China’s financial turmoil has caused the stock market to roller-coaster. Less obvious is what it’s been doing to mortgage rates, which have been volatile, too. “Interest rates also rocked up and down — although to a lesser extent than equities — as…

    The Discovery Cube OC expansion opened in June 2015.

  • Stockport Park in Laguna Hills: A Neighborhood Playground for Families

    Michele Whiteaker
    13 Aug 2015 | 12:44 pm
    Stockport Park is a lovely Laguna Hills neighborhood playground with a large grassy area and plenty of room to run. It’s a neighborhood haven in the early evening hours with families playing kickball and frisbee. Many use the park for birthday parties and barbecues. I’m re-posting it today because it just got a fresh coat of new bark last week. So I’ve honored the occasion with a new slideshow. Location: Off Alicia Parkway on Wilkes – within walking distance of Laguna Hills High School. Neighborhoods are gated here – so don’t take Stockport to get there.

  • Adventure Play Park at Sendero Field in Rancho Mission Viejo

    Adventure Play Park at Sendero Field in Rancho Mission Viejo is right outside San Juan Capistrano off Ortega Highway. It pains me to see this intersection of Ortega Highway and Antonio Parkway/La Pata change so much from the wild space it used to be. For me, it was a gateway to Caspers Wilderness Park and a place for getting away from it all. The grading and housing now goes on for as far as your eye can see.  In the midst of it all is a new community park. Maybe you can get some enjoyment out of this park or programs put on by the Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo? Directions to Adventure…
