Cardiff by the Sea is Hot Property. Homeonwers can relax again. Cardiff ranked 4th in SoCal for home price recovery. Location, location, location? See my story in The Reader.

Let's call this the Cardiff-by-the-Sea Holler...We fought Rand McNally to keep this bequilling name and I encourage people to use it alsway unless space prohibits.

I checked with businesses in Carmel by the Sea, including the post office. Carmel-by-the-Sea in just like Cardiff BTS with Encinitas, part of the city of Carmel. Carmel BTS has a separate zip code and only PO Box delivery, no street delivery. A Citbank employee says she thought drivers licenses just say "Carmel." But here's the kicker . . . Carmel by the Sea homes do not have addresses, even for pizza guys or emergency services. Only street names and . . . each home on that street has a . . . name!!!!! Like "Whitestone" or "Seaweed View." You have to name your home, that's how people find you!!!!! Is that cool or what?

Japan Invades Encinitas Students that is. 19 students attended San Dieguito Academy for a week. Read all about it: http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2013/mar/21/stringers-japanese-students-end-week-/

(It's been 72 years for crying-out-loud, so I can use the "Invade" headline as humor, hopefully without someone being offended.

They really use Liquid Nitrogen? Sub Zero is a newly opened ice cream shop in the Ralph's/CVS/Trader Joe's shopping center. Its the new buzz for dessert lovers. They mix up the cream - still in a liquid form - which your chosen flavor and any toppings, and then freeze it right before your eyes with liquid nitrogen at -321 degrees. One can also order a non-fat, custard, or soy version. A little too sweet for me, and not cheap. $5.00+ for a small. But worth it once or for special occasions. We'll still hit Swirls Yogurt across the street for the regular sweet tooth.

We really like Sub Zero in my family, although I agree that it's not cheap.
