Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


Ready to Say Goodbye to Daylight Saving in California?

As a kid having to trudge uphill and barefoot in Minnesota snow 10 miles to school was bad enough, but in the dead of winter darkness was even worse; so, you can imagine that I was never a fan of daylight saving. Nor did I much care for it when I got out of school and went to work at the Minneapolis Grain Exchange Building, arriving in darkness and departing in darkness.

But the worst, the absolute worst was being forced to move forward or backward in time twice a year when I hadn't left town. This is a holdover from 1949 when daylight saving made sense. It doesn't make sense anymore.

And thank you, Myrl Jeffcoat for giving me the idea to blog about daylight saving in California. I guess it's been simmering at the back of my mind ever since I read about November's ballot initiative in the Sacramento Bee. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Why California Should Get Rid of Daylight Saving.

Things We Did Not Do at the California State Fair
One of my reasons to visit the California State Fair this year was to see the Tiny Houses, but that exhibit was last week. Now it is gone. Well, there are always national musical acts, right? Except none I want to see, well, maybe UB 40, and they… more

King Kamehameha Celebration Continues at Hulihe'e Palace

The Condition of Vog on the Island of Hawaii
One of the decisions we had to make when we decided to buy a vacation home in Hawaii was not only what island but what side of the island. There is a lot to be said for living on the eastern side of Big Island, a lot more lush vegetation, but it… more
Sacramento Open Houses and Holiday Schedules
No matter what day of the week, I seem to always be busy with work. For that reason, it's not unusual for me not to pay a lot of attention to the day, much less the month or year. I still can't get over the fact the 20th century is gone -- since… more
Supporting Community Events Like 2018 Taste of Land Park
The interesting thing about the 2018 Taste of Land Park is we have lived in Land Park now for 16 years, and we just attended the 17th Annual Taste of Land Park. Yup, never participated in the past. How lame is that? Well, in all fairness, I've been… more

California Solar Panels Becoming Mandatory New Homes
Remember the good old days, like 15 years ago, when you could buy solar panels in Sacramento for about $6, 000 to cover a 2, 000 square foot house and generate enough electricity to sell some back to the electric company for a profit? Ha! Nowadays,… more
