Waking Up to a Tree in The Bedroom

Waking Up to a Tree in The Bedroom

Waking up to a tree in the bedroom is a timely blog for Sacramento real estate, given our power outages in the last 24 hours. Very well written by our very own, Josh Amolsch. Enjoy. — JaCi Wallace.

Well, what do you blog about the morning after an above-average storm that caused power to go out multiple times and downed trees all over the city? That’s right, disclosure and inspection advice. There is little worse than waking up to a tree in the bedroom; though the pessimist could rattle off a list of daily occurrences that would meet or exceed that traumatic experience. I didn’t have a tree fall on my house, but I know a few people that had trees fall on their property. I guess if you have a big enough property or a small enough tree, it wouldn’t be such a big deal. Just cut it up when you have time, stack it and use it for firewood next winter. Just make sure you check if you can burn that day. (http://www.airquality.org/Residents/Fireplaces-Wood-Stoves/Check-Before-You-Burn) read more

Sacramento Heat Waves, Staycations with Swimming Pools

Sacramento Heat Waves, Staycations With Swimming Pools

Sacramento heat waves, staycations with swimming pools, the real question is fiberglass or gunite? Gunite pools, of course, take more time to install and ongoing maintenance depends on finishes like gunite or pebble tec. Fiberglass comes with prefab pools, so construction time is much less.

COVID-19 finds most of us staying at home, and a swimming pool would be fabulous entertainment. Here are some things to know: The pool companies are slammed; because many people want to enjoy some time in a pool, so fiberglass pools are growing in demand. Also, well water is very difficult for pools. Saltwater and fiberglass could be your answer. Of course, some will say “no way” to fiberglass. However, many reviews online from homeowners state they were delighted with the fiberglass pools.  read more

How To Have A New Smile In One Day

How To Have A New Smile In One Day

How to have a new smile in one day? Well, when we sell a house in Sacramento, the seller has a huge smile, but that’s not the smile I’m referring to. While watching a TV show on botched cosmetic surgery, I saw a segment on cosmetic dentistry. What was mind-blowing was a gentleman featured who had been through several dental surgeries gone wrong. One of several issues, his dental implants were not screwed into the bone; he sought answers in the UK.

The amazing surgeons, doctors Anthony and Michael Zabutz of the Smile In A Day Dental Centers, are brothers. They are located in Petersborough and Folkstone, UK. The first surgeon did the demolition of the patient’s existing teeth and the other installed the new teeth. In under 12 hours, this patient had a new smile in one day. It was amazing to watch. I can’t imagine what it costs, but the patient walked out with a new set of uppers and lowers set in permanently using titanium screws. read more

Is Team Roping a Hobby?

Team Roping a Hobby

Is team roping a hobby to some or is it a second career to others? This photo is a picture of my son, J.T. Bradley, roping the horns of the steer; he is called the header. The heeler lassos the two hind feet (hooves). This is a timed event. If the heeler only ropes one hoof, a 5-point penalty is issued. Now each rider has a score, based on skill level. The teams are put together by a combined score. You always are not roping with the same partner; this depends on if your attempt received a score. If the team fails no score for the attempt. read more
