San Diego Housing Market Has Been Steadily Improving-But Now It Is Slowing Down
Over the last 14 straight months, the San Diego Housing Market was improving. I reported so here on ActiveRain and on my Voice of San Diego Real Estate blog site with glee. So what is happening now? It would seem at first glance that the Federal Tax credit coupled along with state housing credits inspired most of the qualified buyers that were in the market to have already purchased leaving, us with a much smaller Buyer pool. And that doesn’t look to be increasing any time soon. Could that be a real possibility after having a steady increase in the improving numbers of home prices and sales? A possible cyclical change already?
According to Data Quick reporting, more money was spent last month on housing in Southern California in in the past 2 years. Home purchases are dropping significantly and with the historically low rates that haven’t been this low since the 1970’s, what could be going on? Read the rest of this entry »

As we celebrate this day commemorating our Independence and Liberty, it is fun to look back on our history and take note of those unusual circumstances that are often missed. Here is one such fact in history. Our 2nd President John Adams and our 3rd President, Thomas Jefferson died the same day, July 4th, 1826 as they both acknowledged the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. They were first friends and then grew bitter towards each other. But as they settled into their retirements as Past Presidents, their friendship was reaffirmed and strenghtened . They died within an hour of each other . Exactly five years later , they were to be joined by our 5th President , James Monroe who died July 4th, 1831.
On this, the celebration of the anniversary of our Independence, let us remember these men, Adams and Jefferson. For it is they that so eloquently expressed the ideals of individual liberty and the philosophy of the need for freedom.

La Jolla Festival Of The Arts
This art show and 4th annual charity event held at the beginning of each summer is sponsored by the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Club. It is held on the east campus of the University of California San Diego. The designated grounds use many acres to accomplish the very large event. One of the finest Art Shows in all of Southern California, this art show in particular, I don’t miss.
This is no ordinary community art show as it features Internationally known artists, book signings, Chalk art by Prominent world Class Modonnari, a Classic Car exhibit, Cuisine prepared by Restaurant Row participants, An Interactive Kids Zone, and Music Entertainment by Featured Musicians and Bands on The Carvin Entertainment Stage.
The variety of Fine Arts in different medium covers a very large area on the grounds and the numbers of artists this year was extraordinary. The sections of street painting by world class class Madonnari ( chalk artists) was simply amazing.
This year, I am featuring two artists whose wonderful artistic stylings I have come to know and really enjoy. Introducing you to Kari von Wening and Jan Bush.
