Happy 2012

Yea, yea, I know, it is already almost mid January! Just now catching up from taking off some time during the holidays. Hope everyone is off to a great start to 2012. I think it's going to be a great year!

You can start off the weekend right by getting rid of a bunch of old not-needed documents. On Saturday (the 14th from 8am to 1pm) there is a FREE Shred-a-Thon where you can drive up & drop off your outdated confidential documents, tax records and credit card bills. Representatives from a professional, licensed and bonded document shredding company will be there to take possession & shred them for free - No Limit! No Worries! The location is the Realty One Group at 19126 Magnolia Ave., #101 in Huntington Beach. Food & beverages will available as a fundraiser for the Lions Club of Huntington Beach. I know I'm going to be gathering all those boxes of paper to take,,,are you?

When I visit Bella Terra, I often pop in to Pizzarito for a slice... love their pizza. When you enter Pizzarito, you are transformed into an authentic New York subway station. The Pizza's are a definite must try as the dough is made fresh daily. But there is so much more you can also enjoy in their array of traditional Italian foods, including fresh salads, homemade lasagna and Manicotti, the famous three meat stromboli, pin wheels and garlic knots. Pizzarito also features various wines and beer. Dine in or take out and they have free delivery (within reason of distance of course). Stop by and check them out in the amphitheater at Bella Terra (7821 Edinger Ave. 714-901-2838).

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life in Huntington Beach is held this year on May 5/6... but you can get a taste of what it is all about later this month at our Kick Off Party. Thursday, Jan 26, 6pm-8pm at SeaCliff Country Club, 6501 Palm Ave. It will be an evening of food, drinks and fun while learning what the Relay for Life is all about. Festivities include speakers, a silent auction and raffle prizes. There will be a photo booth, so think creatively and prepare for a fun photos. Past Relay participants I'm sure will bring a prop or two from the theme laps for their photo - hint hint. More info about the Relay can be found at www.relayforlife.org/huntingtonbeachca.
