Summer Music In Marin

Do you ever wonder where to go in Marin during the summer to hear music? There are so many options. I like Terrapin Crossroads and the Sweetwater but I am a bit of a deadhead. Here are some other options. Don't forget that Marin Art and Garden Center has a music series during the summer, too.

Rancho Nicasio Sunday BBQ and Music

This summer Rancho Nicasio, a restaurant and bar in the town of Nicasio in Marin County, is hosting “BBQ on the Lawn 2015” this summer. Purchase tickets ahead of time to save a spot enjoying a nice outdoor BBQ while listening to great bands play. Often on Sundays, though a few exceptions including a Fourth of July party, make this an easy event to schedule in. Bring your lawn chairs, sit back, and enjoy the summer!

Is summer the Best time to buy a Home?


Realtors, lenders, analysts and even buyers are always talking about the spring selling season as THE time to list your home or buy a home. In Marin Country we do see the biggest influx of new listings in the spring and flood of buyers who want to get settled before summer.

But is the spring the best time to buy a home? Honestly, the best time to buy a home is when a buyer is ready! There are benefits and challenges to every season: Fall, winter, Spring and summer but there is no reason why you can't make the best out of each one.

Yes, we do see an increase in inventory after the holiday slow down and end of winter. Sellers are less likely to list their house in the winter due to...

Dear Deer No!

How clever was I?I had this great idea to use a series of fences to allow the deer onto our property to clean up fruit fall, and lock them out when their services were not required.We would live happily together.Ha!Having purchased nearly an acre, with visions of a petite urban farm, my ignorance was only superseded by my naiveté.The deer, it seems, were here first and possess a solid determination to continue to both breed and graze on my little slice of earth.

When it comes to deer and gardens, I have learned, war is not too strong of language.Many of you who have gone to great lengths to nurture tender tendrils of sweet peas, or finally pursued your...
