Pismo Beach Featured in Westways Magazine!

My new Westways arrived in the mailbox yesterday and had a page featuring a Day Trip to Pismo Beach. (pg. 30 if you get the magazine) If you don't get the magazine, I'll try to put up some of the most interesting things from the article. First the map from the downtown area with featured places to visit highlighted.
The first catagory covered was places to EAT. They suggested (1) Old West Cinnamon Rolls. 1861 Dolliver Street. Follow the smell of just baked cinnamon rolls and inside you will hear the rolls are "the best in the world."
(2) Steamers of Pismo Beach. 1601 Price Street. Known for its panoramic ocean view and award-winning clam chowder and some of the tastiest fish and chips in town.
And (3)
Rosa's Italian Restaurant. 491 Price Street. Try the thin-crust pizza with Italian sausage, salami, and green pepper. Be sure to save room for the tiramisu.
Next, there were the places to PLAY. Number (4) is Hotlix. 179 Pomeroy Avenue. Kown for its chocolate-covered ants and worm suckers.
(5) The Sky's the Limit Toy & Kite Shop 761 Dolliver St. Go buy a kite with pictures of ladybugs, flowers, or circus animals.


(6) Beach Cycle Rentals 150 Hinds Ave. They can outfit your for a day at the beach with bikes, surfboards, boogie boards, wetsuits, umbrellas, or beach chairs.
(7) Cottage Inn By The Sea 2351 Price Street. Relax at the thatch-roofed Inn with a cliff top pool and spa.

(8) The Cliffs Resort 2757 Shell Beach Road. Enjoy the bluff sop setting, where rooms furnished in soothing colors frame ocean or mountain views.

These are just a few things to see during your visit. There are many other wonderful motels, restaurants to fit all budgets, nearby shopping at our local Prime Outlets in Pismo Beach, Regal 10-Plex Movie Theater and Miles of Beach to walk and drive on. (Yes! I said drive on!) Local Farmer's Markets are held each week in several locations within driving distance. So come for a day, a weekend or even a week and take in the mild weather and mellow people.

For hours, availability of businesses, attractions, and events, visit the Pismo Beach Conference and Visitors Bureau, 581 Dolliver Ave, corner of Hinds and Dolliver (Hwy 1) call (805) 773-7034 or visit Classic California website.

Patriotic Book Bag

My daughters and I love a challenge. So, back in late May we decided to take each other on in a $5 Dollar Store Challenge. We found inspiration over at Lindsay's Blog, Living With Lindsay. This is how this challenge goes. You shop your local Dollar Store spending no more than $5 on supplies. Then you put your purchases together, in a different way and make something brand new. You CAN use SOME supplies that you have on hand at your house already to complete it. For our challenge, we decided to put in that it would have to be something patriotic, red, white and blue, or something using 4th of July type supplies, knowing that the completion date would be right around the first of July.
I walked in the door of the store about a month ago and found some really nice, thick placemats like these. The ones I picked up were red and white stripes with a blue star pattern. I was already thinking a purse of some kind so I knew I would need about 3; one for each side and one to cut up for the b…

Grave's Disease

The Picture - Half Empty or Half Full?
Many of you who know me know I've been fighting a battle with Graves' Disease for about a year and a half. It was diagnosed in February of 2007. I was so very sick back then I actually thought I was going to die! One of the main symptoms was a rapid heartbeat and mine was probably 110 beats a minute. I was put on Methimazole, about 40 mg. per day to knock down the worst of the symptoms. That has gradually been reduced until now my dose is 5 mg. a day. Then I got some really bad news this week, my numbers are beginning to rise again. My Dr. called on Wednesday and told me he wanted to do the radioactive iodine treatment. I just don't feel ready for that at all. He gave me until the 7th of November, my next appointment, to "see the numbers change". He says to take the medicine every other day and in two weeks go off it all together. Yeah, the numbers will change and it won't be for the better I'm sure. So, I went on the…

Hey Retirement! Don't take OUR Date Night Away!!

"Wait! Did we budget for Date Night??"

Wednesday night is Date Night at our house. It's been that way for a LONG time! And we didn't want retirement to do away with our weekly fun. So today, I'm going to cover some good ways to keep that fun coming and be able to pay for it with slightly reduced funds.
Put some money in the budget. Analyze what you can afford and how many times you will be going out during the month. If you get paid twice a month, budget for two date nights. If you get paid weekly, you only need to budget it in for the week. For us, we are getting paid once a month so we will budget for 4 to 5 nights out. We set aside about $20 to $25 per week for date nightRemember, it's about spending time together not how fancy the dining is. You can make a picnic one week and then spend double the following week at a nice place. You can make dinner at home and go to see a play or movie. In our case we could go to the beach with some hot dogs, potato chips a…
