  • The Colony Green Condominium Community in Blossom Valley San Jose is typically peaceful and quiet. Exceptions are when the landscapers are mowing and hedging and on Wednesday morning when the garbage and recycle trucks are making their rounds.

    On October 31, 2017 there was all kinds of noise and activity taking place in the community. This was the view from my kitchen window.

    I prefer peace and quiet yet I am happy that I was able to capture this on video.
  • This feral rooster which I have named Mr. Green Jeans resides in the Colony Green Condominium community in Blossom Valley San Jose, CA. He will not let anyone close to him. This video was taken from my kitchen window. As he forages for food a squirrel appears out of nowhere and causes the rooster temporary alarm.
  • The Colony Green resident rooster calls to my neighbor who did not answer the call. Mr. Green Jeans hangs out a lot near my Colony Green condo. He is often so close yet when I get near him he takes off clucking and running.

    I will not give up my attempts to rescue him and take him to a sanctuary in Clayton, CA where he can live with a flock of chickens and other farm animals. I believe he will be much happier.
  • Colony Green Condos in Blossom Valley San Jose is home to Mr. Green Jeans . I've fallen in love with this little guy. My quest is to safely capture him and bring him to a 37 acre sanctuary in Clayton., CA. He deserves to life with others like him.

    Video Transcript:

    Hi.My name is Debbie Gartner and I'm known as The Flooring Girl.Today I'm going to answer the question about how long it takes to sand & refinish Hardwood floors. It's one of the most frequent questions I get from my customers, and it's a very important one.

    Smart customers ask this and plan ahead. I can't even tell you how many people call at the last minute, and as a result, they are in a bad situation. They often have to postpone when they do this or reschedule, or they need to reschedule when thee movers will be moving the furniture or stay in a hotel or use an inferior type a poly.

    All of this is solvable. You just plan ahead.

    First, in terms the timeline, it depends on if you're using oil or water-based poly (and I'm going to be doing a separate video on that).

    But, here's a brief synopsis. Oil-based poly will last longer, than water-based. Most people prefer the look of oil-based. It has a richer glow and timbre. I don't mean it's shiny because we usually do with a satin finish. But, the water base has a much duller finish and the oil based is what you're much more accustomed to you in terms that the healthy look of wood. Oil based is generally less expensive as well. For all these reasons, it's generally ideal to use oil-based poly.

    There are exceptions which I'll get to, but at least keep options open right now.

    In general, it will take 3 to 5 days to do the work plus you have drying time on the other end. And, most people forget this in their time line. This can vary based on whether you're doing a stain or how dark the stain is (darker stains take longer to dry), humidity levels play a factors as well. If it's more humid,it will take longer for the poly to dry and can vary based on the size and scope of the job. If you have 3,000 square feet do, it can easily take an extra couple days. Usually when you're doing natural, it's a two- to three-day process; usually when you're doing a stain, it's 4 to 5 days. Stains could take up to 48 hours to dry (sometimes 24hrs, but plan on 48). If you're doing 3 coats of poly, and a factor in day for each coat, you are easily at 5 days. If you have more than 1000 square it can add to the timeline as well but often if you plan ahead, we can double up on the crews.

    If there's prep work to do before, such as carpet rip up and staple removal (staples can take a very long time remove) or vinyl and sanding off the adhesive under the vinyl, or if there's repair work or moving furniture - all these can add to the timeline. Sometimes just a few hours but sometimes it could take an extra day or two depending on the scope. You also need to plan around Sundays

    After the work is done, you need to wait 24 hours before walking on it. At that point socks ONLY. At 48 hours ,you can wear shoes and at 4 days you can put furniture back or you can put the drop cloths down (if you're going to be doing painting.) You also need to factor in extra time before dogs can walk on the floor as well as area rugs.

    If you're doing water-based poly, the biggest benefit is that it will cut down the timeline. it would only take 2 to 4 days to get the work done. Usually 2 days if it's natural; usually 3 to 4 days if it has a stain. And, then the drying time afterwards will be shorter instead of 4 days before moving furniture, it's only 2 days. You can see how it definitely cuts down, but it still takes time to do. You still want to done to plan ahead.

    Things that can throw the time off: The biggest factor is weather, and that's outside of our control. If it is very humid, it will take longer for the coats to dry. Of course if there's a snow storm work if you lose power that's going to delay the process as well.

    Also, if you have pine or maple floors, those can be more challenging to be refinished. They take a little bit longer to do. And, also, if you have Herringbone or parquet, those will take longer as we need to sand in two different directions. Or if using our dustless system that can also take a take a little bit longer for set up and maneuvering the machine.

    Most people choose to do this work before they move into their new house. Or, if they are already living there, they'll do it while they're away on vacation. You can't walk on the floors and it
    is smelly and messy. So, the best advice I can give to you is to plan ahead.

  • Relay for Life - Almaden, May 4, 2013. This American Cancer Society event started at 10am on Saturday, May 4, 2013. Teams walked all day and all through the night for 24 hours non-stop. This was my first ever Relay for Life event. I was invited as a guest of honor to walk with other cancer survivors on the first lap. I walked for several hours with my friends. The record heat in Almaden did not stop us from walking, celebrating and remembering those who lost their battle with cancer.

    This was an amazing event which I am blessed to participate in. It will not be my last.

    None of it would be possible without the support and dedication of so many people.

    Unfortunately, on 11/16/2013 I discovered the music that was playing at the opening ceremony was deleted by the YouTube police. I just don't understand people some of the time. The music you hear playing is not the original music.
