What are girls supposed to do?

Got a young daughter? Watch this with her. Then talk to her.

More Spit and Polish

I'll take the polish, please.

This Saturday the Marines are reprising their Car Wash Saturday. After you've dropped off your e-waste a the LBUSD parking lot, go get the car washed and help out military families.

Here are details from Sita Helms, the "helmswoman" of the project locally:

Marines Car Wash Rain Date OCT 13TH 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post #9934, Dana Point, is sponsoring a car wash for our United States Marines of the 5th Marine Regiment, Headquarters Company from Camp Pendleton. Marines will wash and dry your car to a "Spit and Polish Shine." Donations accepted.

In November, these troops will attend their annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball, prior to deploying to Iraq for a 12-month tour. We hope to defray most if not all of the costs they will incur, through this car wash event. Come by to shake a hand, say a "thank you" and be a part of this event.
Where: South Shores Church Parking Lot
Address: 32712 Crown Valley Parkway, Monarch Beach
(Just up from PCH & Crown Valley)
When: Saturday, October 13, 2007

What Lurks in your Garage?

What to do with that CRT from your old computer, or the sound system that used to be 1995? How about the TV that has seen better days? This Saturday, Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Surterre Properties is sponsoring a FREE e-waste drop-off at the LBUSD parking lot at 550 Blumont Street at Park Avenue. This is a great opportunity to get rid of stuff in an environmentally responsible way. Nearly all electric devices are welcome, including old fax machines, computers, TVs, printers, etc.
