Pretty Serious Sale In Japan

I heard many stories about this particular store in Japan using this word for their sale... either way I'd love to see this at a nearby mall, it'd be hilarious!

Pomona PD Joins L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers

Just saw this in my inbox...

I am pleased to announce that the Pomona Police Department has joined other LA County law enforcement agencies and have partnered with Los Angeles Regional CRIME STOPPERS.

Please take a moment to visit the site to get an idea of all of the resources that are now available to not only our community, but our investigators as well.

LA Crime Stoppers allows the community to provide crime tips via: Text Message, Web, Telephone, or a free iPhone & Android app.

Tips received will be processed internally in a manner that is similar to WeTip. Though we are now live with this modern system, we will keep our WeTip contract active for at least the remainder of this year in order to make a smooth transition for our community and the department. Sergeant Samuels deserves credit for his assistance in getting this program off the ground. The Crime Prevention unit will begin marketing the program and I will prepare a Media Release soon.

Captain, Operations Division

Another Cambria Weekend

(Click to enlarge this quick put together panoramic view)

I had the opportunity to enjoy another stay this weekend in Cambria (technically 2 weekends ago now). Oh my, what a lovely relaxing time. Cambria, Pines by the Sea! This was my view from the balcony the whole weekend!

Tried a locally made brew from San Luis Obispo called TAP IT IPA. Man, this stuff was DELICIOUS, with bits of hops floating in it.

This one rivals Stone's IPA. (Yes, it was that good)

Wait, here's a better view best enjoyed:

Went into the downtown WEST and EAST and enjoyed a great brunch at Linn's Cafe. Their Cambria Quesadilla is awesome, I recommend. Didn't take any pictures there, as I normally forget because I want to enjoy myself.

I did manage a snap of nothing special in downtown, I think my daughter was messing with my camera.

Plus, this place cracked us up... we keep saying 'I bet she did!'

And here are some shots of the coolness about being in Cambria, those darn Monterey Pines/Cypresses and the ocean.

(no clue who those people are below)

Check out this mini-hut we ran into on our morning walk

And there ya have it. A mini update on my Cambria weekend. I'm hoping to go another time or two this year. I just love this little town! It's about a 4 hour drive from out here for those who have never been there. You can take the 101 all the way, or cut through like I do on the 5 to Paso Robles... yes, the WINE Paso Robles country to pick up a few bottles on the way!
