I love chili and believe it or not, it's been cool all week here in Mission Viejo. So I just got an itch-in for some good chili...but I can't stand the look or taste of ground turkey and the beef? Well...too many calories for me. So I thought about the great Soyrizo I found to use in my Huevos R...
The 2012 Orange County International Triathlon will be held in Mission Viejo on May 20, 2012. This coming Sunday (April 1st) Lake Mission Viejo has a preview day. Regardless of whether you are enrolled in the Triathlon or not, you can come participate in a 1 mile swim from end to end. This is no...

  Did you use the "First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit" to help buy your Mission Viejo home in 2008? If so, you now need to start repaying it. The Credit was not a gift, but a loan! Many people misunderstood this fact....that it's repayable over time. Beginning on the 2010 tax returns, the borrower ...
      I was driving home from an appointment and heard on the phone that there had been an earthquake in Mexico. There was that familiar turn of my tummy...happens every time I hear of an earthquake. We live with the constant wonder of when it will be our turn in Mission Viejo. It wasn't today! ...
Every once in a while we read something which embodies a unique spirit. This blog was that for me. I needed this today!!! My kids seem to all be having a week of unknowns and their mom, I'm doing my best not to outline outcomes, but that's hard for me...control freak. This was just ...
