Jim with Whiskey and Aiko, the German Wirehair Pointers who like to horse around when not patrolling their ten acres, December, 2008. Care for a dip in the pool? Or would you rather chop wood, do some landscape gardening, hike or work out?
I lived here 9 months Feb.-Nov. 2006, halfway up Mount Tamalpais on Panoramic Hwy. in Mill Valley, CA.
Live-in situation: to be available 24/7 for last minute dog/house sitting. But my employer moved out of state.
Brandy & Adam--their three older dogs: 2 malamutes and a kuvasz.

Jim and Mountain the malamute (1/8 wolf!) on deck, Mount Tamalpais, November 3, 2006. Co-starring with Mountain are his estranged wife Shasta and their mysterious roommate Ginger the kuvasz. Plus, the house and grounds are nothing short of spectacular.

Hi, folks, Are you looking for someone who will be around all the time?
Well, that's me as I work on my computer all day and evening, editing video and creating interactive web pages.
What is the parking situation?

Here is the rest of my ad:
Computer and comedy/drama/speech teacher seeks self-sufficient unit with access to parking.
Location: anywhere within the Sacramento-Marin/Sonoma County-San Francisco-San Jose quadrangle.
Non-smoking, single, straight, mature man.
I have set up my computer work station in spaces as small as 12 x 5 feet, plus additional living space, but would prefer more room than that.
Your kitchen table might work out just fine!
Must be in quiet, secure neighborhood.
I usually have several projects that require my part-time attention.
Examples from 30 short video clips which I have already finished. (Requires the Flash Player to play these two videos):
2) My other teaching and creative projects:
Videos that do not require the Flash player and therefore, do work on iOS and most Android mobile devices (Apple & Windows smart phones, tablets, etc).:
To house-sit = room & board:
1) use of domicile 24/7
3) Plus, possible additional charges for unique services, if any.
Upshot: your advance payment reserves my time during busy vacation periods throughout the year.
Board = leave me some food, or food bill is added.
An hour/day worth of chores are included in my daily fee for dog walking, etc. More than that, figure another $20/hour.
Note: these terms are negotiable for jobs of a month or longer.
But remember: my fees are still far less than boarding your animals and I will be around to protect your property. Plus, I provide you a long-distance presence for monitoring both maintenance staff issues and the various household emergencies that do come up.
Such a deal!
