The last few weeks have had some very sunny and hot days here in the Quad Cities, and with it just being the start of Summer I'm sure we've got a lot more on the way. Which is a bit rough for gingers like me. This article goes out to all my fellow pale and fair skinned QC residents.


If for some reason you do forget it, make sure you cover yourself or use something like an umbrella for shade. I've been there before where I lie to myself and tell myself that I'll be fine and don't need to cover up. I don't want to look dumb in front of people, but ever I'm not fine, and I get very burnt.

Obviously getting sun is good. There are so many benefits to getting even just 15 minutes of it, but for us gingers, or just fair skinned folks out there, all it takes is for us to overstay our welcome in the sun for a few minutes to get burnt.

That's why I keep sunscreen, and an umbrella in my car. I might look goofy, but I'm tired of getting awful sunburns for just having fun this Summer.

Now that things are open again I'll be going out a lot more. If we see each other you will most likely be able to smell the sun screen from a mile awhile. Let's all stay safe and unburnt this Summer. Don't forget your sunscreen guys!

Million Dollar Quad Cities Home vs Million Dollar Los Angeles Home

We all know the joke about how much houses cost in LA. I decided that it would be fun to look at a million dollar home in LA and compare that to a million dollar home right here in the Quad Cities.
Here are the two spot we are comparing:
12513 Walsh Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90066
Cost: $1,195,000
984 sqft | 3 Bed | 2 Bath


901 46th Street Dr, Moline, IL 61265
Cost: $995,000
15,291 sqft | 6 Bed | 11 Bath

Clearly one is a bit bigger than the other.
