Okay! For bean bag chairs THE place to go is the FOAM MART on Victory Blvd. in Burbank. They have racks and racks of them in all sizes and great prices. Zebra stripe, neon colors, vinyl, plush - no problem! They will custom make them also. We bought two neon vinyl ones there a couple of years ago. F...

For Streng homes in Sacramento, look up real estate agent David Heitz. He knows ALL the areas. We live in a Streng pocket in Carmichael and it's great. Half the people here don't even know their homes are stylish and the other half are just catching on. A home around the corner from us just sold for...

That is amazing and terrific in a scary way - it's so Vegas. It reminds me of the old high roller suite at Caesar's that we've seen in so many movies. Hollywood glam! I think it's a good price considering how the market is at the moment. Add: I take the price comment back, I just noticed it's in Riv...

Hey girl, it would be great! Don't know to much about the local motel situation, we don't get out too much, but I'm sure there's some good ones. If you haven't been here you've got to see Old Town, kind of a restored 1800's district. Also downtown Sacramento is really charming, with outdoor cafe's, ...

There are pockets of these early 60's Streng homes all over the older suburbs in Sacramento. Last year when we saw our first one and decided we wanted one, our real estate agent Brian McMartin researched and produced a map showing the areas.

Just sold our Toluca Lake 1930's spanish and bought an Eichler-like 1962 Streng home in Sacramento. So we're going modern - out with the Victorian antiques and in with modern living! The house is pretty cool and shares a lot of the Eichler style. From what we can tell, it's all original. There are q...
