  It’s Snowing all over Southern California....Yeah!   We have had a storm hit our area and pound us with rain and snow. I thought I would share some pictures. As you can see, the weather continued to get worse and we finally had to turn around as we did not have chains and it was snowing pretty hard. It is beautiful in Southern California and fun to be able to drive to the snow within 15 minutes of home.                                                                                                                                   California is a dream come true state no matter what your needs or wants are. We have year round warm weather, beautiful beaches, rustic mountains and desert communities. If you are looking for a home in southern California, please contact me. I am a local C...

Look... we work hard and we should play hard and under playing comes rewards. That leads us to the title of the post and to the picture below. I use fresh ingredients that include milk, eggs and lemons off the tree. The pulp of the fruit makes for a great after taste as well as a good binder for the mix. The results? Sheer lemon bliss A TRUE PUCKERING EXPERIENCE I don't like things that are too sweet, too buttery or rich and that don't compliment the palette. I have created this to be more of a FUN food but a food none the less. In other words part of the meal and not a dessert per se. I had a large portion and you haven't really puckered until you have had a near perfect blend of the sweet and sour...

  Today January 13, 2013 is the 12th Annual “No Pants Sunday” event.   Today is the 12th Annual "No Pants Subway Ride," first organized by Improve Everywhere in New York City. The stunt was inaugurated in 2002 when seven pranksters boarded a subway without pants. Ten years later, the delightfully tacky gag has spread across the globe and enlisted thousands of "agents" in a yearly mission. It is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm but may vary at different locations across the nation.    Don’t be surprised today if you see people a little undressed on the streets, waiting at bus stops or in the subways as many are going pantless today!    In Los Angeles this morning, large groups of people showed up to ride and yes they were pantless and surprised many riders and bystanders.     ...
