Holiday Fun!

November 14, 2016 5:52 pm

Greetings everyone!

Just a reminder that we are just a little over a week from the Holiday season kicking off! I have been looking around for some things to do this year to keep my holiday spirit merry and bright and I came across a few things I wanted to share with you. Who doesn't love a good Holiday movie?? The historic Carlsbad Village Theater is showing Elf- starring the ever-hilarious Will Ferrell. It will be on Sunday, December 4th at 6:30 PM. Tickets are just $8 for adults and $4 for kids 12 and under. The little littles are free. Go to Carlsbad-village.com to learn more.

More to come on what is going on around town this holiday season! Don't blink or you will miss it!

Have a wonderful week guys!

Don’t Forget to Vote Tomorrow!

November 7, 2016 3:01 pm

Greetings and Happy Monday to you all!

Tomorrow is Election Day and a very important one at that! They are all important, but this one is monumental! Make sure to take the time and go vote. I ran across this fun site that had some interesting facts about past Presidential Elections. Some of my favorites:

"Elections belong to the people. It's their decision. If they decide to turn their backs on the fire
and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters…" –Abraham Lincoln

— Victoria Woodhull was an American leader of the woman's suffrage movement. In 1872, Woodhull ran for President of the United States. She was the first woman to run.
–Talk about a major "oops!" "Dewey Defeats Truman" was an incorrect banner headline on the front page of the Chicago Daily Tribune on November 3, 1948, the day after incumbent United States President Harry S. Truman won an upset victory over Republican challenger and Governor of New York Thomas E. Dewey in the 1948 presidential election. It was famously held up by Truman at a public appearance following his successful election, smiling triumphantly at the error.
–President William Henry Harrison; our country's 9th US President died just after 32 days of complications with pneumonia.
–Ok this one! And I thought I retained nothing from high school. I'm taken back to my Civics class with Mr. Dulavich! I totally remember this: President Richard Nixon chose his running mate Spiro Agnew so that he wouldn't try to compete with him. A reporter asked him if it was a disease. Mr. Dulavich would be so proud that I remembered this fun fact!
–Do you wonder why Election Day is when it is? In 1845, Congress decided to make it the first Tuesday after the first Monday because it was after the fall harvest, and before it was too difficult to travel with the weather and all.
–Roseanne Barr ran in 2012. She did. I know, right?!

Get out there and vote!

Pick of the Patch Pumpkins and ABC Farms

October 21, 2016 2:00 pm

Greetings and Happy Fall to you all! Can you believe it is just about time for the holidays again?? I feel like we just rang in 2016 like a second ago, yet here we are again! My, my how time flies!

I know that we are supposed to get a few more days of hot temps, but I will enjoy the slight nip in the air while it is here. It reminds me of Fall back East where I grew up! Lovin' all the Pumpkin Spice, sweaters, and cute pics of people decorating pumpkins! It made me want to take a look-see around town to see who has fall festivals, and anything pumpkin. This place looks fun and I have actually heard good things about it:
