On Saturday cars and pickups lined both sides of the road leading into the Taro Ranch on East Dodds Road and also filled the empty field adjacent to the Taro home. There was excitement in the air as friends and neighbors gathered at the Taro Ranch to join in the birthday festivities, or as the invitations stated "A very special Wild West Hoedown" for one of our favorite people, Tony Taro, who was celebrating his 90th birthday. Preferred attire for the festivities was Country Western, and guests were delighted to oblige.

Cost Less Market ... What a spectacular trip it is from Valley Home to go grocery shopping. Taking the time to appreciate this trip is something that I have learned to make a priority.

Crossing this beautiful gateway bridge offers you a moment to reflect. Many thousands use this strong and steady passage ...
