Favorite Things Friday – Activities in Lincoln, CA

Rods and Relics in Downtown Lincoln, CA

Okay, it isn’t Friday yet, but I wish it was! One of my favorite things is that I love the fact that there is always something going on in our community. It is fun to go to events and see friends and enjoy one another’s company. Whether it is a Christmas Parade, 4th of July Fireworks, Farmer’s Market or other special event, it seems like there is always a family friendly event to look forward to. Last Saturday, there was the Rods and Relics Car Show in downtown Lincoln. It was extremely well attended and more entries that I have ever seen in a car show downtown. There were various food vendors and some good music to listen to while checking out some of the amazing restorations. It was a good time for a few hours on a Saturday.

This week we have the Lincoln AirFest coming up (June 11th). It promises to be a great event. It seems like every year the air show at our little Lincoln Airport gets better and better. This year they are having a Youth Aerospace Expo, Helicopter and balloon rides and of course, some cool Warbirds. There is a pancake breakfast and then opening ceremonies at 10:00 AM. Under 18 is free and general tickets are $10. Check out their website here: Lincoln Airfest

I hope to see you there!

Has real estate in Lincoln, CA gone to the dogs?

Another one of my favorite things has to be my yellow lab, “Crosby”. I love animals and I’m even starting to take a liking to my wife’s little, black and tan mini-dachshund, “Jovi”.




Selling a house is definitely stressful on people, but it can also be a time of stress for your animals too. Over the years I have helped numerous clients with their animals during the sale of their homes. Fortunately, I am an animal lover. My wife even calls me the “Dog Whisperer”. I wouldn’t go that far, but I do seem to have a way with most furry kids. This can come in handy in real estate. Just last week I had to reason with a very large Cockatoo to carefully get him back into his cage. I thought I was going to lose a finger but it all worked out. Sometimes I will take a client’s dog for a walk while a house is being shown or just calm down an anxious kenneled pet. I’ve had a number of cases where I’ve made arrangements with an owner to show a house and when we get there, the dog(s) are left in the house and not too happy to see us. I’ve been able to go in and nicely secure the dogs in the yard or garage while my buyers are able to comfortably look at a home.

Favorite Things Friday-goats and sheep in Lincoln, CA

                                                    Grazing within the City limits

If you’ve driven down Twelve Bridges Drive lately, you may have noticed something a little different- hundreds of sheep and goats grazing on the hillside. While this isn’t a new approach by the City, the reasons behind it are interesting.

There are two main reasons the City has chosen to implement managed grazing. The first reason is to control the growth of invasive plant species. Weeds such as star thistle and non-native invasive species such as blackberry bushes are kept from overrunning the fields by this grazing, allowing for greater biodiversity in the area.

The second reason this tactic is being used is to limit the risk and fire hazard that often accompanies these tall grasses. This is especially important given the close proximity of these open spaces to many homes.

This alternative approach brings a new way to prevent fires and preserve the habitat without the use of harmful chemicals, and brings a bit of the agricultural charm and heritage of Lincoln into the City itself.

This is another one of my favorite things about Lincoln-seeing (and hearing) the sheep every spring!

Favorite things Friday – Lincoln News Messenger in Lincoln, CA

       Lincoln News Messenger-Tony’s 24 hr race

I love Lincoln. I like the small town feel and the friendliness of the people. I like being able to go to events like the 4th of July Fireworks, Farmer’s Market and Car Shows and being able to say “hi” to lots of people I know. I love the proximity to the mountains and also to the ocean. I like taking drives out through the country and seeing the rolling hills, granite outcroppings and happy cows in the pastures. I like this time of year when everything is green, but I also like seeing the “golden” grass of the fields in the summer. Lincoln sunsets are amazing. Another thing I like about Lincoln is our weekly newspaper, the “Lincoln News Messenger”. It isn’t a large newspaper by any means, but it always provides some human interest stories and history of Lincoln as well as covering our city’s past and upcoming events. It really gives you a feel for what Lincoln is all about. If you are thinking about moving here or are resident that cares about our City, I highly recommend taking a look at our little, weekly publication. The Lincoln News Messenger is one of my favorite things. I prefer the old fashioned feel of the paper in my hands, but it is online too at

Firefighters and Hockey-Favorite things Friday in Lincoln, CA


carter-1Last season I had a chance to play with the Sac Fire hockey team. Obviously, I’m not a firefighter and with my Boy Scout background, I’m probably a little bit better at starting fires than putting them out! Our Firefighters in this area are a great group of hard working guys and they play a good brand of no-nonsense hockey. My son and I enjoy playing with them. One of our goaltenders had his mask painted by an artist in Canada and it is sweet! It shows our California flag on one side, a rendering of his Engine at a large fire that made the front page a few years ago and the Cal Fire and Sac Fire logos on the back. Pretty cool Carter! We are all appreciative of the hard work and risks that they take to keep us safe. Thanks! Being able to play a game I love with my son and these great guys is one of my favorite things.
