Mother Nature has a way of Landscaping with Sunflowers     I just love to see sunflowers growing in fields, along the side of the road or off to the side of the railroad tracks.                     The dull earthtones are perked up with the bright yellow faces shining up at the sun.                   A few months ago I had one grow from some bird seed and it lasted for a  month or more.   Sunflowers make me smile!   Thanks for Reading my Blog.

Think Pink in October! Breast cancer is something that has touched the lives of so many and October has been designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  During the month, the two primary goals are to increase awareness regarding the disease and the second is to raise funds.  Locally in the Inland Empire, there are many ways to participate.  Here is a video that I created to spread the word.  Please feel free to share it with your circles to help get the word out.  Thank you.

  A Tale of the Little Blue Scooter     My daughter got the bright idea in her third year of college (2010) to get a scooter to drive it to school. The idea was to save money and gas.

Well that was the end of riding the scooter to school and she went back to driving her Mini Cooper. The scooter sat there for several years taking up space in our garage tandem until she went off to graduate school....
