From 27 July until 12 August 2012 we will be tuned in to root for our Team USA! Thank you to Walmart in West Sacramento for allowing us this photo opportunity.

Sushi Art at the Nugget Market

I could not help myself yesterday..this beautiful Tempura Shrimp Roll called out to me as I walked by. The Sushi Chef at the West Sacramento Nugget Market prepared one especially for me. Our family has been working on healthy eating and I think this fit in with our program!

Remembering Allen Cadero

R.I.P Allen Cadero 1951-2012. Many folks are remembering the good times they had with Allen Cadero and the "Merry Band of Misfits"...a bunch of kids who graduated from James Marshall High School in West Sacramento. Allen was an active citizen in our community and served on many local boards and committees including the West Sacramento Parks and Community Services Commission, West Sacramento Historical Society, The West Sacramento Arts Guild, and the Special Olympics. Allen was named Citizen of the Year by the California Parks and Recreation Society in 1994 for his extensive involvement in the community. Allen, the entrepreneur, had successful business partnerships in the Sacramento Valley and opened Cloth Country on Jefferson Boulevard, moving it to the Merkley Ave location then to Old Sacramento. Family and friends will be gathering for a private memorial.
