Food Fetish – Holy Guacamole

Food Fetish – Holy Guacamole

Having an avocado tree is the gift that keeps on giving. I count myself among the lucky to have a tree so generous, so happy, and so fecund at this time of the year.

Culver City in the Current Market by Natalie Bergman

In Culver City real estate, things are definitely improving. We have only 41 houses for sale at the moment in Culver City and they run the gamut from desperately-in-need-of-TLC at $400,000 to desperately-in-need- of-a-price-reduction at $1.3 million (you know who you are!) Houses that are clean and well priced are moving fast, while those which aren’t, aren’t. Nothing says “Buy Me” like [...]
