Business​ and Life is Good

Looking back, I had a great week and am fired up to get started this Monday morning.

Along with taking care of my regular Bi-Weekly clients, I also completed my first “Landscape Clean Up/Front Yard Staging” for a local real estate sales company.

The yard came out great. The owner was a big help in completing the project on time. Both the owner and the listing agents were happy with the results.

I also interviewed for two other jobs, one I got one I didn’t that is batting .500%. I will take that every week this new year!

The job I got is one that could lead to many others. I am so thankful and proud that this new venture is growing so fast. I only started with property management and home care last September!

We decided to take a drive on Saturday. What started out as a trip to Monterey to watch the whales, ending up being a trip to Downtown Los Gatos. Here is where I got my dream device. I bought the newest iPhone X.

Check out my other website for a review of this amazing new phone.

Lastly, we also had some of the most incredible surf and sunsets I have seen since moving to Santa Cruz.

Okay, Time to get to work.

Have a great Week,



Moving Video Hosting to YouTube

I met a former computer engineer today who suggested I move my videos from my own hosting service over to YouTube. After he explained I completely understand.

Retired in Santa Cruz is a simple videography site where I quickly capturing an interesting story. “When I see it I shoot it”. I was not using youtube because I didn’t want it to be in today’s social media frenzy.

I would rather have it on my own web domain. That way if the people I am filming are not OK with it then, I have total control to remove it. I feel as if Facebook and Youtube is being watched by way too many people.

That is why I was using Vimeo along with a simple site.

WordPress is a great community of mostly Bloggers and I like it being simple and low key.

However, I am now going to start up a youtube channel.

Thanks, Denny

She is Beautiful Run/Bike Ride

So today has been great, well worth the 5 o,clock start time.

So where to start , Denise and I rode our bikes to see the Women’s 5k and  10k run. It was cool we saw them setting up, the leader passed us early on in the Ride and we hung out at the Fair, it was set up at the Surfing Museum. We took a ton of pictures and videos.


They had a cool setup. EpicCenter Bicycle’s was their giving out $10. coupons! We bought our bikes there. The best purchase we could have made. They had a rock climbing wall, yoga instructors ready to teach you how to do yoga an more! Check out videos on Vimeo for more.

We had a good time. But we left early. Off to continue work on our boat!

It was great to see all the family members and volunteers supporting the race. Check out our video below and watch the crowd cheer on the runners! Also check out our Vimeo Channel: (Ignore the “YourMacShow” Title I don’t do Mac Tutorials anymore)

Here is a picture of both winners:
