Arizona Land Investment

I bought some vacant land in Dolan Springs, Arizona.  20 acres.  I bought it as an investment, and here's why:  Dolan Springs is 80 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada, via the old route. (currently the only route)

The new Hoover Dam Bypass is set to open soon which will shorten the drive time to Las Vegas by about a half hour.  So with the problems that Las Vegans are facing with the highest rate of home foreclosures in the country along with many other drawbacks, some folks might consider living in Arizona and working in Las Vegas.  With that in mind, Dolan Springs would be an excellent alternative.  The land there is cheap now but when the bypass is completed later this year (2010) I, and many others, expect that the price of land in Dolan Springs will skyrocket!  If you're interested in buying investment property, you can do it online.  Here is the website that I used:  Dolan Springs Landscapes Online
This is what my land looks like now:

I also want to mention that Dolan Springs lies about halfway between White Hills and Golden Valley, AZ.  
That said, after you watch this video from CNBC you might want to contact Dolan Springs Landscapes.

Rummage Sale

Saturday I volunteered to work at the Rummage Sale where the Bloomfield Presbyterian Church had 2 tables.  We had one table with items from the Church's thrift shop, and one table with baked goods.  All donated.  I spent most of the day carrying items from the thrift shop to the tables outside.  The weather was sunny and warm but just a little breezy.  Good turnout though and it was a lot of fun.   I think we made more money from the bake sale than the merchandise sales.The Bloomfield Presbyterian Church in Bloomfield, New Jersey was built in 1797!  If you would like to see a photo, go to Zazzle's Historic Buildings tab.

Below is Jill.  She was at the rummage sale and hoping to get adopted.

Feed The Hungry Dinner


Last night was the monthly Feed The Hungry Dinner at the Church.  It was cold and snowy outside but despite the crummy weather, we served 50 guests.  We also strayed from the usual menu of pasta with meat sauce.  This month's dinner started with tossed salad, the main course was homemade Shepherd's Pie.  For dessert, marble cake with chocolate icing.  As always, I was on kitchen duty!

Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey has one of the most magnificent arrays of Cherry Blossom Trees in the United States.  I was inspired by their beauty to write this article:

My Zazzle Store

I wanted to try something new so I opened a Zazzle store.  For those of you who don't know what that is, (I didn't) it's an online store where I can create designs and/or slogans and put them on all sorts of merchandise.  I have t-shirts, mugs, tote bags, mouse pads, key chains and so on.  Lots of really nice items.  Visit the store, you might see something you like.

Feed The Hungry Dinner

The Feed The Hungry Dinner was December 21.  I was kind of busy before the holidays so I'm posting a little bit late.  Anyway, it was a success as usual.  We served about sixty dinners and had fun doing it!  Here are some pictures of the dining room before the guests arrived, and the kitchen with two faithful volunteers.  Click on the pictures to enlarge.
