Heti lumbered into the lounge and asked everyone she saw, “Do you know where I can get some amazing holiday spaghetti?” The customers gave her the strangest looks, they had never seen a yeti before, much less a yeti looking for holiday spaghetti.

Halloween Driving Safety

Halloween is right around the corner! The weather is cooler (kind of), the leaves are changing, we're breaking out the scary movies, the costumes, and best of all the candy! Halloween is wonderful but it also has its issues. One of those issues being a whole bunch of people walking the streets at night in dark costumes. Halloween is fun but it's not so fun when you're not safe. Here are some tips on how to stay safe on the streets this Halloween. Watch For Children! ​This sounds obvious, I know, but it's important. Kids are likely not going to be thinking too much about the carson the road when there is candy to collect and fun times to be had. Don't assume that any pedestrians are going to stop for you.

The Southern CaliforniaGolden Retriever Rescue's mission is to find loving and nurturing homes for retrievers in needregardless of conditions or circumstances. So it was a pleasure to have some of their dogs join us during the car show. It was a chance for everyone to see how kind and nurturing the dogs are and to give the dogs a chance to find a new home. The car show was a great opportunity to check out some classic diesel cars and it was also just a great time connecting with the community and getting to know some of our neighbors.
