                     After years of battling back and forth, with the City of Moreno Valley, Skechers is finally on it's way to it's new digs in beautiful Southern California.  Soon Skechers will be the largest employer in Moreno Valley as the new 1.8 million square foot warehouse will bring in 2500 new jobs to the city.  This will be a great shot in the arm for our city that has always been considered a bedroom community due to most residents having to travel out of the area for employment.                                 There has been some that have avidly opposed this project due to concerns over traffic and the enviroment, but in all reality, for Skechers to bring there North American Operational Headquarters to The Great City of Moreno Valley, is nothing but a blessing to thousand...

I went out to grab a bite to eat at lunchtime and decided to visit my friendly, neighborhood Chick-fil-A.  As I am sure Jeremy Blanton will whole-heartedly agree with, Chick-fil-A is a fantastic organization with spectacular food.  They believe in serving quality food for great prices, treat their employees well and give back to their community in any way they can.  So, when I got home, sat down and opened my bag of hot deliciousness, I saw this little green piece of paper talking about Military Appreciation Month at Chick-fil-A in Moreno Valley, CA: Every Saturday in May, all military personnel (whether active, reserve or veteran) is welcome to eat for FREE all day long.  They only have to present their military ID.  And, as if that weren't enough, on Saturday, May 29, 2010, the Chick-...

Southern California experienced torrential rains yesterday.  No, not just some rain.  We had actual thunder, lightning, hail, flooding, heavy downpour and even a tornado here and there.  We even had a tornado watch going on yesterday afternoon.  I was waiting for Elmira Gulch (Margaret Hamilton) to come riding by my window on her bicycle with Toto in the basket.  Craziness!  In the afternoon, this was just a taste of what we experienced: It was over in about an hour.  After evening fell, so did more rain.  We had this going on: Lightning was almost hitting the hills behind our house.  Thunder rolled on and on, sounding alot like the jets we hear every so often from March Air Reserve Base located about a mile and a half south of our home.  There's supposed to be an even heavier cell head...

While driving home from dropping my son off at school this morning, I saw this in the sky: Closer view: What the heck is it?  The sun was to the left.  This anomaly in the clouds started out as dark amber on the left, graduated to light gold, then was white and finally grey on the right.  Of course, I just HAD to pull into the car dealership, get out and shoot a photo to share. **These photos were taken by my very own camera and are my property.  However, if you like what you see and want to use them for yourself, please let me know.  I might give my permission, I might not.  I gotta hear the reason first. ;-)** Heather Chavez, Real Estate Virtual Assistant - Second Self Virtual Assistance: When There Isn't Enough of You to Go Around!

If it had a birth sign, Southern California weather would be a Gemini.  Why else would you look in one direction (north) and get this: Cloudy storm clouds over snow-capped mountains to the north of my house. Then turn around looking south and get this: Sunny skies over my home in the complete opposite direction from stormy skies above. **These photos were taken by my very own camera and are my property.  However, if you like what you see and want to use them for yourself, please let me know.  I might give my permission, I might not.  I gotta hear the reason first. ;-)** Heather Chavez, Real Estate Virtual Assistant - Second Self Virtual Assistance: When There Isn't Enough of You to Go Around!

For some reason, when I was pumping gas the other day (appropriate, no?), the song "Beans, Beans the Magical Fruit" came to mind.  Can you see why that might be? Apparently, "So nice, you'll taste it twice" is considered a great advertising campaign.  Of course, if you're buying your lunch at the gas station's convenience store, I guess you're not a real "stickler" for quality.

If you have ever seen a dancing cow in your neighborhood, then you might know what restaurant he is promoting: This little guy (or gal, you can't really tell) is always working his/her tail off to tell everyone to not both with eating beef.  It's so passe.  "Eat More Chikn".  I saw him/her dancing on the corner when I went to pick up some lunch today.  Chik-Fil-A is a fantastic fast food restaurant with tons of healthy food to eat that tastes fantastic.  Had to share! Save the cows!  Eat More Chickn! **These photos were taken by my very own camera and are my property.  However, if you like what you see and want to use them for yourself, please let me know.  I might give my permission, I might not.  I gotta hear the reason first. ;-)** Heather Chavez, Real Estate Virtual Assistant - Seco...

My son and I love Halloween.  In fact, you could say we have a "howling" good time!  I waited until the last minute to buy and carve the pumpkin because a carved pumpkin doesn't last very long.  I took the video below with a daytime and nighttime view of part of our Halloween display to share.  This is merely a taste.  If you want to see more, you'll have to come by next Halloween!
