Well, it's been about 8 months since I've posted anything on here... and I feel a comeback arriving! I've had many adventures and I haven't had the time to share them. Not even on Facebook or social media.
Now with my 2nd son off to college, I have a new office at home! Uh, more of an office/bedroom but nevertheless... uninhabited! Although my new State work of the past year takes up quite a bit of time, I've grown sick of coming home and vegging out with beer or a TV that is nothing but commercials and stupidity.
I shall return soon! Really, I will... I'll try... oh damn it.
After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one
would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold
in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s
fatal in high doses.
But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose!
An interesting take on the soon to be Syrian mess. Watch if you want to see something that makes sense, or more sense I should say. At least WAY more than corporate biased bullcrap that we're force fed.
Oh yeah Baby! It's here... the biggest rivalry in the Valley TONIGHT! Tickets are $10 and will be sold at Citrus College gates. San Dimas High has plenty of tickets available and Bonita High has sold out as of this morning.
It's time for Bonita to take back the Smudge Pot after last year's heartbreaking loss at the last minute. This is going to be one helluva game.
As a Bonita parent, I wish well to all the BEARCATS and especially to these absolute beasts:
Dimas Diaz, Christian McQueen, Noah Montoya, Thomas Loy, Jacob Karim and Christian Ramos.
Wow, this is the longest hiatus I've taken away from the blog. I am still here (for all 2 of you). It's been a long and hectic summer, the busiest so far! So many things have happened around town that I just can't cram it all into this post. I was happy for Freddie Rodriguez securing his run for Assembly coming up in September. I've been messing in local politics lately too...
I was at this year Claremont's 4th of July parade, my daughter marched with the El Roble Cheerleaders. It was so much fun! Here's the Claremont City Council all in one:
I've managed to go to quite a few Dodger games this year (lucky me) and
they are having an amazing year! Where are all the overnight Angel fans
from 2000 and so on? (Crickets). Here' a pic of Gonzalez at bat (This
was versus the Reds):
Downtown Pomona has had quite a few events this summer. I took a few of the guys from Bonita High School's football team to the Fist of Gold outdoor boxing. 11 fights total, all were great! Also, this year's D.P.O.A.'s anniversary party was so much fun. It was in the style of the 1920's at the historic Fox theater. Here's a pic of the flapper dancers:
Also, managed to hike the Marshall Canyon in La Verne earlier this summer. Can you spot the deer?:
Anyways, just wanted to pop my head in and say hi to my fellow bloggers
Debuting this ArtWalk Saturday (May 11, 2013) in Downtown Pomona is the new Trolley! I have to give a big mention and thank you to the Great D.P.O.A. for this deal! If it wasn't for them, the Downtown Pomona we know now would not exist (and the great people from before, our beloved Artists too). Now you can visit the galleries that are a little further on the new trolley, such as the Pomona Packing House. The trolley will be running from 5:30pm to 9:30pm. The trolley will have 11 stops at various locations throughout Downtown. A complete tour will take approximately 30 minutes. And best of all, IT'S FREE... I cannot wait for this weekend!
Here is the current schedule for the stops:
Stop 1: Thomas Plaza, Farmers Market
Stop 2: Corner of Thomas & 3rd
Stop 3: Corner of 3rd & Main
Stop 4: Corner of 2nd & Main
Stop 5: Sculpture Garden, 500 Block of W. 2nd St.
Stop 6: Corner of Parcels & 2nd St.
Stop 7: E. Armstrong Gallery
Stop 8: Corner of Gibbs & 2nd
Stop 9: Western Univ. of Health Sciences
Stop 10: Pomona Packing Plant
Stop 11: AMOCA – then back to Thomas Plaza
As I was driving back from my diagonal trek to the supermarket across Pomona, someone was literally just hit on Holt Ave. How? I have no clue, it's a bright sunny day. Unless you're texting or chatting with someone in the car and not looking. Hope the guy is okay, but he was laying still on the road and people were standing around him. This happened about 20 minutes ago.
Oh yeah... conspiracy corner time. I do believe there is some inside stuff going on with the terrible Boston Marathon explosion. But do enjoy these interesting tidbits to enhance your opinion other than corporate television & media views.
Very last minute post but if you got some time and need to get out a couple of hours this evening, then head over to Dale Brothers Brewery in Upland. It's only from 5pm-8pm, but come check out the smooth native jazz and blues Rushingwind Project and sip on a locally made craft brew for a few.
Los Angeles native living in the ignored northeastern edge of Pomona for the past 9 years. What brought me here? Cheap Housing. I still live in what I had originally bought as an 'investment' property... and love it!
