Are You Looking For Trouble...or Adventure? When you notice a group of teenagers hanging out, what is your first thought or feeling?   Here’s a story I read recently that may appeal to those of you who know teenagers. As I was heading into my local Los Gatos, Calif. Safeway store, I noticed four young boys hanging out in front. They looked "up to no good" to me. I watched them closely when I entered and left the store, but while I felt uncomfortable, they just kept talking and laughing at one another's jokes. I wondered how potential home buyers visiting the Los Gatos open house across the street would feel if they also noticed these "neighborhood troublemakers." I didn't see any obvious lawbreaking, so I left them behind and went home. When I got home, I greeted my own teenager and not...

Six Bizarre Things to Celebrate in July by Michelle Carr Crowe, Silicon Valley guide and Cupertino real estate agent selling San Jose homes Every month is noted for something. June is the month for weddings. September is the month for back to school (although most schools in Silicon Valley now start in August). July, I suppose in response to following June as the prime month for weddings, is "Unlucky Month for Weddings." It's also Anti-Boredom Month.  Three different food types celebrate: National Blueberry Month National Hot Dog Month National Ice Cream Month. And my favorite...National Cell Phone Courtesy Month. Turn that phone to vibrate and enjoy July.
