Home Tip 
Check Your Hoses
A washing machine hose that bursts can discharge hundreds of gallons of water in less than an hour and cause a flood of problems. You should check your hoses periodically for signs of wear. Experts recommend replacing these hoses every few years. When replacing hoses, buy hoses that are reinforced with an external, stainless steel braid. Also, turning off the water supply to the washing machine is a good idea whenever the home will be vacant for more than a day.

Home Tip of the Month

Plants that are gopher resistant
Do you want to know which plans are gopher resistant? Or maybe you're interested in the solution to a squirrel problem. Follow this link to an article by Pam Peirce that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle last month that addresses both of those issues and more.

Claim YOUR Money 

The State of California receives money from all of us when we've overlooked a life insurance plan, a pension or anything else that gets turned over to them after a certain period of time when these things are not claimed.
You can go to and put in your family names, your maiden name and your relatives' names. You may just get some money that is YOURS!
