Teal Door


This is a Time Capsule of a 1908 Greene & Greene style, is an excellent example of an Arts & Crafts home. Designed by the acclaimed Pasadena, CA architect, Arthur Heineman. He used the drama of space, massive volcanic stone foundation and fireplace, leaded glass, built in cabinets & wood shingles. The handcrafted house was built to promote the use of redwood. Craftsmen from Pasadena hand milled the window sashing, columns, open beams and distinctive built-ins w/ leaded glass like the Gamble House.  Traditional items for the Craftsman Era define this house. Time stopped & almost everything is original & a vision of the past. The grand space of the living room with the massive fireplace flows into the large dining room with a fireplace. The main house has 2 bedrooms that each access the sleeping porch. Porches would be ideal space for creating ensuites. Additional built in storage is thru the home. .42 acre corner lot w/ basalt lava rock walls, a detached garage w/ living quarters & BA. HR-3 Zoning. Close to the U of A, downtown & light rail. Significant restoration needed.  Historically and Architecturally significant property.

Marana Lake / El Rio Preserve

Marana Lake / El Rio Preserve

Marana’s plans for the lake are exciting. Located at 10190 N Coachline Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85743 Already the area is home to 226 bird species there is a picnic spot and parking lot. El Rio is one of the links in the chain of preserved riparian habitat along the Lower Santa Cruz River, including sites such as Sweetwater Wetlands and Kino Environmental Restoration Project


More info is available at


Marana and Pima County plan to create bank protection, clear the underbrush, lining 2 ponds and adding recirculation. They will take out the invasive species of plants. They have been in communication with the AZ Game and fish to introduce native fish. They are trying to make it a nature park with a low impact use.


Birdwatchers should be thrilled to know that there are almost as many species of birds as have been identified at the Sweetwater Wetlands.  


I asked about kayaking but like most of AZ, we just look at the water. You can’t touch it. The disc golf course should be moved to the SE Corner closer to the river.

Magic experience finding Thai food in LA at Thai Nakorn.

Patti’s experience in LA. Of all the joints in all the towns in all the world



I drove to LA to attend a high frequency Real Estate training conference. I followed the GPS to the hotel somewhere in the LA area. I was heading out for a late dinner. I REALLY wanted Thai food. The parking lot of 1st restaurant was a bit sketchy. Back to google. I went into a newer restaurant. Out of the 60 plus diners I was the only non-Asian. Pretty much a good indicator the food is authentic. I was a bit conspicuous. After looking at the vaguely familiar menu I asked the waiter is this Sam's place? He excitedly said Yes, Yes, Sam is in the kitchen. I made it 1/ 2 way across the restaurant before Sam looked up and said OH MY GOSH. I went from being a freak to a celebrity. Years ago, he was in a different city and fire closed them down. They built this new building in a new City. We 1st went there maybe 25 years ago. Of all restaurants in LA I could have walked into it was Sam's Thai Nakorn. I knew it was going to be a magical weekend.
