Each day of this New Year 2012, I will bring you a photo of an event, person, animal or activity that you will enjoy here in San Diego. As the dominant On-Line REALTOR® in San Diego and amateur Photographer, I will show you San Diego like it has never been seen.
On this first day of the new year, I visited the Hotel Del Coronado to bring you a most unusual experience. Ice Skating on the shore of the Coronado Beach. It was 70 degrees in the shade and the activity was enjoyed continuously through the day and evening. As you can see, the warm weather created a wet but glassy image on the ice , reflecting the Grand Dame of Hotels, Hotel Del Coronado on the shore of one of San Diego’s finest, deepest and cleanest beaches.

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.

How to determine the Best real estate professional for you!
Sometimes San Diego real estate buyers and sellers experience difficulty selecting the perfect Real Estate Professional to assist them with their home buying and selling experience.
Often it can be as easy as taking a test to find the perfect agent for your home buying or selling experience.
Find out who truly is the very best Real Estate Professional for YOU!
(DON’T SCROLL DOWN YET)
DO THE SIMPLE MATH BELOW, AND THEN SCROLL DOWN TO FIND THE PERFECT REAL ESTATE AGENT FOR YOU.
It’s AMAZINGLY CRAZY how accurate this is!!
1) Pick your favorite number between 1-9
2) Multiply by 3
3) Add 3
4) Multiply by 3, again
5) You should now have a 2 or 3 digit number….
6) Add the digits together
Now, scroll down.
With that number, see who your PERFECT AGENT is from the list below:
(1) Your cousin, Vinny, who just received his real estate license this past Tuesday
(2) Bob, who rode his bicycle 7 miles to your house, because he lost his license to drive
(3) Nancy, who told you to get in, sit down, and shut up, because you were in for the ride of your life
(4) Madeline, the agent who consulted with a Ouija board to determine your home’s list price
(5) Eric, who brought his aggressive Pit Bull along for showings, because he didn’t know “who” or “what” we might encounter while viewing vacant properties
(6) Marcus, your car’s auto-mechanic, who also sells real estate on Sundays, and sometimes in the evenings
(7) Allison, who once volunteered her time at the hospital, but is into real estate as a hobby now.
(8) Ellis, who told you before you could sell your home you needed to complete the list of 78 improvements on your home. Total cost of improvements $56,000. Home value – $150,000
(9) William Johnson – Realtor for over 20 years and lives here in wonderful San Diego. Caring, experienced and the consummate professional.
(10) Oh, oh, need to cross Don’s name off this list, because we buried him last month.
See, it wasn’t that difficult to select the perfect real estate professional after all.
At the end of your successful real estate home buying or selling experience with #9, you will know how accurate this test was!
Why are you laughing???
P.S. Stop picking different numbers. Just dial (858-487-6975) and ask for William Johnson, author of the Real Estate Text Book with over 20 years of experience. Tell him you took the test, and it told you to call.
*This test is meant for entertainment purposes only! Any names used (other than my own), are either fictional, or have been changed to protect the guilty!

The city of San Diego is now at Level 2 Water Emergency. San Diego city Council yesterday voted eight to zero to impose mandatory outdoor water usage restrictions throughout the city of San Diego, effective June 1, 2009.
The newly enacted measures call for the following:
Watering of lawns and landscapes throughout the city and its jurisdictions can only be done from 6 p.m. to 10 a.m.
Outside watering ( applicable to residential and commercial properties) can only be done three days per week.
Each property owner must follow the assigned days of week according to the property address. Read the rest of this entry »

Hoping to break ground in 2009, The Poseidon Resources received its final approval from the California State Lands Commission and now has all the permits needed too proceed with construction of its desalination plant on the grounds of the Aqua Hedionda Lagoon in 2009. With it’s final favorable vote by the state Lands Commission, Poseidon may now proceed to co-lease the Encina Power Plant’s intake of seawater.
The Encina Power plant currently uses the seawater for it’s power plant’s cooling system but will be soon be converting to an air cooled system. The Poseidon’s Desalination Proposal of using the seawater intake had stirred opposition from environmentalists and a recent legal opposition by environmentalists was dismissed against one of the permits this past week.
All Systems Go! Poseidon expects to deliver drinking water to nine local San Diego water agencies by 2011 and in a statement by Poseidon Resources, it rightfully claims this is a historic day for California as the desalinated water will now be a measurable component of the State of California’s water resources.
