Ain't that the truth. Just for laughs, I was looking at some home prices on the gulf coast of south FL, not far from the beach and found dozens of amazing houses for about a third of what I paid for my house here in L.A.

My wife's aunt lives in a very desirable L.A. canyon neighborhood and an old neighbor of theirs retired and sold a "fixer upper" to a couple from Missouri, who then spent 8 months renovating the place themselves and flipped it for $900K in profit. When asked what they were going to do next, they said they were going to move back home, buy a nice house for a fraction of what they cashed out with and retire on the rest.

Been in LA for 7 years now. Housing is the killer, but if you can get a group of people, that's the best way to keep costs down.

Food out is expensive, even Subway adds up. Groceries are actually not bad, so shop and cook yourself. Car insurance is astronomical in many areas, and in general cars and car-related things are expensive. But if you are dedicated, you can make it work.

So I left the bank in May. What a relief, did not like that gig! I had to get the California real estate license to work for a mortgage broker. Took me 4 months to get the license! Start my new job today. Pacific Trust Group in Hancock Park (LA).

I went to MN for a few days for my daughter Tessa's graduation (In Winona, MN). Stayed in downtown Minneapolis. It barely got above 10 degrees the whole time I was there! Nice reminder of one of the reasons I left.

So glad to be back home in LA!

Don't know man, it's been dipping into the low 50s...it's getting harsh in Tinseltown.

Haven’t had much luck with mortgages, but hey, this is LA! I’m now a background actor. Tomorrow I’ll be on the third show since I started a week ago. Fox TV, CBS, and NBC. Fun stuff!
