Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez leads "Welcoming" crew for President Obama at Joint Congressional Session!
I always love to see when a President of the United States addresses Congress on vital issues. Tonight was no exception.
I also love seeing how California Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez manages to get a "prime aisle" seat whenever a President addresses our country.
Tonight 'Retta rocked the "Congressional Center Isle" and welcomed our new Commander in Chief into the "People's Congress" with a huge hug and a kiss!

After a bumpy Confirmation Hearing, Hilda Solis gets her Labor Secretary approval. Will a Cerritos native replace her in Congress?
The Senate has confirmed California congresswoman Hilda Solis, a native of La Puente, as President Barack Obama's labor secretary.
The 80-17 vote comes after more than a month of delays.
I wish you well Hilda. Now the fun begins to replace her in an upcoming Special Election for Congress.
Look for a Cerritos native to take on Senator Gil Cedillo to replace Solis in that upcoming early Summer campaign. Who is that Cerritos native? Stay tuned, I will fill you in later this week.

$125,000 in CAMPAIGN CASH: Jim Edwards, Carol Chen, Cindy Yen Chen dig deep into their own pockets to fund campaigns. Reforms are needed!
Three of the candidates seeking election to the Cerritos City Council have already loaned their campaigns $125,000.00 thus far.
Incumbent Councilwoman Carol Chen has given her campaign $34,500.00 in "loans" and challenger Cindy Yen Chen has bankrolled her campaign $30,000.00 according to documents filed late last week at Cerritos City Hall. Why do we tolerate this type of "campaign financing" to be allowed here in Cerritos?
Be informed about this election, before you cast your ballot. It is time for campaign reform here in Cerritos, once and for all.
Let Freedom Ring.

"Music and Lyrics" has something for everyone. The chemistry between Grant and Barrymore is amazing, and both seem to be having fun in this entire movie.
I "hung out" with her for a night at the House of Blues in West Hollywood while she filmed her MTV Film Documentary on Howard Dean's campaign for President in 2004. I also had fun with her at a "Meet UP" for Dean during that campaign. What a great, smart, talented woman!
This movie needs to be on your DVD rental list! It is my Hot Pick! Watch the Vid and send it to your pals!

Meet Robert Garcia:
WE ALL NEED MORE GOOD GUYS LIKE ROBERT GARCIA in PUBLIC OFFICE here in CALIFORNIA.
LET'S help our friend Robert win, donate or volunteer today!!
They say your as old as you feel. I don't feel like I am going to be 49 this coming Friday. When I was young, people who were 49 were well...old.
I need to "process" this weeks semi-milestone birthday.
The first thing to hit me this week, is that I am ACTUALLY older than the current President of the United States. How can that be? I am celebrating this weekend at Roscoe's in Long Beach. Soul Food. Good food for my aging soul. Appropriate and tasty. Anyway, I am alive and thriving here in America. I look at the glass half full, and cannot wait to celebrate birthday number 50 in 2010. Keep me in your Prayers and Good Thoughts this week. "Sing it, Marilyn, and Stevie Wonder!!!"

When we had our house fire back on June 20, 2008, we had to replace both of the FRONT and BACK yard. My late father Dick Economy loved his yard. Today, I am sure he is totally in awe of how wonderful the house looks. The project to replant over 40 years of grass, ferns, shrubs, sprinklers, trees and plants has taken us the last 6 weeks. This weekend we dodged the rain, and have completed our yard transformation into a tropical paradise.
OMG. Hey, is it too late to apply for the Cerritos City Wide Pride Award? Where is that darn application? Oh, here it is. LOL. (click here if you have a neighbor who deserves to be considered for a Cerritos City Wide Pride Award).
