Encinitas Classic Car Nights 2022~ Final Event  ~I suspect many classic car buffs and non-aficionados alike love the Encinitas Cruise Nights on the 3rd Thursday each month from May through September.  This is an annual series each summer. Several local car clubs will have their vehicles parked for all to admire! There will be dozens. If you missed the first 4 events next Thursday September 15th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm is the last opportunity this year. I’ve attended several times (see my slideshow), but it’s been a number of years now.   You can’t help but be wowed by the Woodies, Hot Rods and other classic, vintage, and foreign cars parked along the Coast Highway 101 in downtown Encinitas! They’re all beautiful and so well maintained by their proud owners. The theme for this final Encinit...

 Your Thoughts About Shared Equity Investments?I'm curious to know what lenders, investors and RE industry stakeholders think about Shared Equity investing?We've been in the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) aka BACKYARD HOME business in san Diego for almost 40 years. Until recently most of our transactions have been cash, leveraging capital from IRA's, 401k's, retirement accounts, RE portfolios or conventional cash out REFI, HELOC, 2nds, etc. However during the past few years since the new California ADU laws were enacted we've been paying some attention to the companies that offer what is known as "Shared Equity" loans. Is anyone familiar with or actually used these types of loans? What is your opinion of them? What are the down side risks vs the upside potential for investors?At first I ...

Ole Glory Flying in Encinitas CA I had to take my wife to a doctor appointment recently, and was sitting in the car doing some work on my phone. I happened to look up and noticed this flag flying through the gap in the bushes in front of my car at the next medical office building. I thought it was perfectly framed by the greenery. Unfortunately from where I was I couldn’t get a photo of the flag and the building itself, at least not through bushes. It was a June Gloom day so the color isn't the best.  It was simply a lucky sighting that afternoon, since I wasn’t, at the time, looking for a flag flying or thinking about the June contest. That’s the way things happen sometimes. I have found myself noticing Ole Glory flying much more than I did in the past as a result of this contest. And ...
