I'm interested to see what you find. We have been picky in choosing our daycare options and I know that not many people would hold businesses to the kinds of standards that we do. That being said, I'm sure there are some places around here that will work for us. The worst requirement we have is the hours we need. It's tough for places to comply with those.

No, good sense, weather, and parental involvement are the keys here. In the past 25 years, Trick or Treating is usually done by 8 PM.

The downtown WC area with lots of apartments has a high percentage of Spanish speaking people. This area appears to be lower income. But I would not call it "bad". I feel comfortable parking my car in that area and do not fear it being broken in to or having the hubcaps stolen (I cannot say the same thing about Pittsburg, West Pittsburg, or parts of Concord). There is something magical about Walnut Creek. No matter who you are, there is a level of respect that people abide by. I have never seen graffitti in Walnut Creek. That tells you something. ... more

I've got several blogs on Trulia offering free advice on BPOs and how to get into company systems. The certificate from the school is just another one of those places to spend time and money. Very few companies care about this sort of thing unless you are "certified" by a class they approve, which most of the time happens to be owned by them for an additional moneymaker. The 2 year requirement is getting to be more common, but don't give up. Plenty of the good companies will take you on with less than 2 years experience.

Here is a Trulia link for a full list of companies that are currently active:

Read some of my blogs on signing up, getting into the system is a simple process to get that 1st BPO.

Best Wishes,

You could get your renter to go to and print out a credit report. This is free and is approved by the main credit reporting agencies.

If you know the name of the builder and they are still in business, depending upon the age of your home, you could contact them for their floorplans. I LOVE floorplans and have been collecting them for years. They are so much fun to hand out to a buyer that is purchasing a home that was built years back. Buyers just love them in their ability to see the layout and plan their furniture, etc. If your home is relatively newer you can check online with that builder's website and see if they have your plan online. Possibility! And of course, the city should have modification permits onfile if the home was remodeled. There is always the friendly neighbor approach. Locate a model match in your neighborhood and ask that owner if they might have a floorplan from their purchase. Maybe they will be kind enough to show you how their home is layed out. If you are not shy and bold enough to approach them. Good luck!! ... more
