Unfortunately, Stephen Pease, the owner of Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar & Grill has been found dead. Various news reports state that Stephen Pease was found along the border of Sonoma county & Mendocino county. Investigators feel that Mr. Pease was in the ocean at some time. I will follow up on this story later.

You have to admit that I have been on the sidelines regarding this subject for a long time. So, what do you think? Should I jump in? First, let me say that I don't have every detail about Obama Care Program. But I have heard a few story's. This story sticks out the most. If I am wrong, let me know. This is a story of a husband & wife with two kids. The husband works full time & his wife works part time. With a miracle, they manage to log on & explore the Obama Health Care site. They discover that it will cost approximately $800.00 per month to cover the entire family. Second case scenario: Enter the second couple. The husband has been laid off work & the wife is a stay at home mom. The couple lives in Section 8 Housing & they go to the local food closet for food. As they log onto the Obama Care website, they discover that there monthly bill for healthcare will be $4.00. Yeah Buddy! Is this right? Tell me what you think. Leave a comment or email me!

Nothing like being out of work & not getting your EDD unemployment check. Another system failure by government. In recent days, it looks like a "Mole" at EDD has came out of the woodwork & is talking. If you are out of work I suggest looking at EDD for training, job opportunities etc. That is their job. To provide jobs. Let the money thing go. That's all screwed up right now. May I suggest selling on eBay, having a Garage Sale etc. The country was built on buying & selling. Not waiting around for a check. You have to make your own luck. If you need help, email me at email@example.com

Hey people, just thought I would check in & do a post or two. Like always, it's been a heck of a week. As a matter of fact the stress got so bad for me, I took today off! Yeah Buddy! I do have a question for the Sacramento Local Readers. What's up with all of the accidents this week? It seems like everyday I wake up & go online someone has been ran down in the middle of the night. They are pedestrians, people on bikes, or people just trying to catch light rail in the morning. WTF? Everyone needs to slow down in the morning & make the City of Two Rivers a safer place to live.

Nothing like a good Car Show to wash away your troubles. But this is not your typical car show. The is the International Auto Show at Cal Expo. This is a great show. You can go & look at all of the best that the automakers have to offer. The best thing is that the representatives are there to provide information only. It's a relaxed atmosphere. You can look, touch & smell without a salesman breathing down your neck. For more info, go to Google.com.

First, let me apologize for not checking in sooner. Buy doing so I have discovered that if I don't blog, people will not listen. My readership can span across the world or I can be lazy & watch the worldwide communication shut down. With that being said, how about a fresh version of T.G.I.F. Another Week in the Books! Yeah Buddy! Like the title says, it's been such a long time. I have been through a lot. Flu Shots, Smog Inspection, Blood Pressure check, Dentist Appointment, as well as dealing with difficult people etc. etc. To top it off, this week I had the "smoke detector" check from my Property Management Company. This consists of a search of your apartment comparable to the latest version of the TV Show "COPS" Needless to say, I passed all of the challenges. Stay Tuned. I have a lot to talk about!

I find it interesting that after several years of the big rivalry between the Sacramento Kings & the Los Angeles Lakers Shaquille O'Neal is now our buddy. I remember we had a Hell of a Team. With Rick Adelman as our coach, the Kings went from a joke to an NBA championship contender. Run & Gun, that's what it was all about. Our team would win 10 games in a row without breaking a sweat. If you recall when this was going on, the Lakers Center Shaquille O'Neal was relentless with his trash talking. He often referred to our team as the Sacramento Queens. Then there was the showdown in the year 2006. During the Playoffs with the Lakers there we a lot of questionable calls. As it turns out, one of the officials had a major gambling debt & allegations of point shaving came to light. In the end the Lakers advanced to the finals. The rest is History. So now in the year 2013 we have new ownership & a new arena on the Horizon. With that being said, like a stray cat here comes Shaquille O'Neal with his checkbook. Now he is our buddy & has bought a minority interest in the team. Rumor has it he even lives here in the City of Two Rivers. So the big question is what do we do? Do we welcome him with open arms? Or do we "Tee Pee" his house? Let me know what you think.

First, let me say that it's been another challenging week. I am so ready to retire. You have no idea. Ok, with that out of the way, over the past week it has been made known that the new arena is going to be built by Union labor. For once, I agree with the Mayor. For a project this big, Union labor is the only choice. Many people do not realize the History of Labor Unions. It's all about good wages & benefits for the workers. So what is wrong with that? Labor Unions built this country. Jobs were provided to workers & giving them a fair wage, benefits etc. Would you rather have illegals making $10.00 an hour on the project? They would use someone else's social security number to avoid paying taxes & send the money they earn out of the country. Is that cool? I don't think so. Let American's build the arena, get paid & pay taxes. So be it. Scab labor needs to go away. Scabs hurt the economy. They steal jobs, avoid taxes & take advantage of the system. Do you agree? Like mentioned before, I do not like the Mayor's policies. But this time he is right. Union Labor will get the job done!

This week I had the pleasure of ordering lunch at the General Store located at 500 Capitol Mall. Or better yet, basically this is a small market in the back of the Bank of the West Building located at 5th & N Street. So with all of the logistics aside, let me tell you about my experience. I made my way to the General Store to order lunch. In the back of the Mini Mart there is a Deli Counter. As a matter of fact, the line was very long. I held my own & waited in line. After a few minutes I was up to order. I ordered a 6" Pastrami Sandwich (toasted) with pepper jack cheese, olives, red onions, lettuce & tomatoes. Making my way thru the assembly line I watched as they put this sandwich together. It was fantastic. As the Sandwich was completed, I grabbed a bag of chips & paid the Cashier. After that, I made my way to the Soda area & filled up my medium Coke. While they don't offer in house dining, the General Store puts together a fantastic lunch. In closing I give the General Store 3 out of 4 stars! If you are Downtown, you have to try this place!

Earlier in the week I had the pleasure of dining at Kabob House, located at 1726 Fulton Avenue. The last time I ate there, it was back in July of 2010. Why on earth did I wait so long? So anyway it was around 5:00PM when I pulled into the parking lot. I was hungry! As I walked inside, I was greeted by my server & told I could sit anywhere. Like before, there was Greek music playing in the background & the restaurant was very clean. I took a seat at a table facing the front window of the restaurant. I asked my server for a glass of Iced Tea. Looking over the menu, I knew that I wanted to have Lamb. My server returned with my Iced Tea & I placed my order. I ordered the Lamb Souvlaki dinner(Two Skewers for $18.95) which is served with a Greek Salad, Pita Bread & Fresh Steamed Rice. The Lamb is cooked on skewers with tomato, onion & bell pepper. As a matter of fact, this was the same exact meal I had ordered three years ago, only before I had ordered 1 skewer of Lamb. After a few minutes, my server brought me the Greek salad. It was excellent. It had perfect seasoning, fresh lettuce, cucumbers, tomato & feta cheese. OMG, it was so good. After about 10 minutes, my dinner arrived. I had asked to have my Lamb cooked medium rare & the Chef cooked it perfectly. What a fantastic meal. Everything was great. After I finished, my server asked me if I had room for desert. I said that Baklava sounded good. She asked me, do you want me to heat it up for you? Interesting, I had never been asked that before. So I said yes. Heating up the Baklava melted the Honey inside. It was awesome. As I finished the Baklava, I got the bill for my meal, the total was only $21.38, I think they must have gave me a discount!. I left $28.00 in the black book, thanked my server & rode off into the sunset. I give Kabob House 4 out of 4 stars. If you like Greek food, you have to try this place.

Hey folks, it's been a heck of a week. First, let me thank all of my readers across the United States & abroad for their continued support. I find it amazing that people all over the world are tuning in. I'm sure that you have noticed that there are no more ads on my blog. A few weeks ago, I received an email from Google AdSense. Basically, they terminated our agreement. Heaven forbid I post links on the internet directing people to my blog. Apparently, this was a violation of the advertising agreement. Oh well, what are you going to do? It's no big deal. It is what it is. What everyone has to realize that I was not dependent on the revenue from Google. I am at peace with that. The revenue was not enough to make my Ferrari Payments anyway. But, I will survive. So with all of the B.S. out of the way, let's look at the facts of our fine city. If you surf the web it looks like the Arden Fair shooter is in Custody. That's a good thing. If you look at the internet, you will see that other crimes are being solved. So in closing, I have to say that you can run, but you can't hide. Stay safe & live in the moment.

I remember 30 years ago, taking a date to Farrell's Ice Cream on Howe Avenue was the start of a relationship. Everyone had high hopes & was looking forward to spending time with each other. It was so much simpler back then. No internet, no cell phones, twitter, Facebook etc. Then Farrell's went away. Fast forward to today. Farrell's is back in business with a brand new location at 1645 Watt Avenue. Near as I can tell it's at Arden Way & Watt Avenue. I looked at their website & they have a lot to offer. This is just not an Ice Cream Place. In addition to Ice Cream they have Burgers, Sandwiches, Soups & Salads. I noticed that they have a Burger for $11.29. This must be a Hell of a burger. Hope you check it out! I know that this place is on my "to do" list.

Many of my longtime readers already know that I very rarely do a blog post mid-week. Oh well, looks like I am going to break tradition. Today, was a special day. It looks like multiple gun shots rang out at Arden Fair Mall. Not a good thing. You have to realize that this is my territory. I grew up in this neighborhood. I remember cutting threw the back gate along Jamestown Avenue into the parking lot of Arden Fair Shopping Center. It was an escape. I remember being 10 yrs. old & walking inside the back entrance of Macy's. The Air Conditioning was so cold. it was so swanky. We played on the escalators until the employees gave us the evil eye & we knew it was time to move on. After Macy's, my friends & I made are way to Food Circus. We would play Pinball & get into trouble. Now look what has happened. Back in the day, the only thing that you feared was getting into a scuffle & getting your pride hurt. I remember the older kids broke into the pinball machines & left all the free games that we could play. Fast forward to present day. Now we have people shooting at each other for stupid Bullshit. In closing, I hope that the high tech security systems in Arden Fair Identify the people responsible for the shooting.

First, let me say that it's nice that I'm back in the saddle. I have been offline for a few days, but a lot has happened in the City of Two Rivers. We had the big fire along the American River Parkway in the heart of North Sacramento. As a matter of fact, KCRA spent 2 1/2 Hours covering the fire. As near as I could tell, no lives were lost. Needless to say it was good TV. Additionally, we had some crime in Midtown & surrounding areas. But the big story is the arrest of CHP Officer Jeffrey Closson age 47 who is accused of loitering in a public toilet & sexual battery at Arden Fair Mall. What was this guy thinking? Arden Fair has State of the Art Security Cameras & License Plate Readers. Why is a CHP Officer in the Toilets at Arden Fair? What's the world coming too?

Today I took the day off & decided to go to the California State Fair at Cal Expo. It had been a couple of years since I went to the State Fair & I was looking forward to the experience. I pulled into the East Gate & paid the $10.00 parking fee. I found a good spot & headed towards the gate. Admission was $12.00. There were signs posted at the entrance stating "Security Checkpoint" Oh well, what are you going to do? So here is the deal on State Fair Security. If you have a fanny pack, back pack, baby stroller or if are carrying a bag you are going to be searched. As for me, I didn't have anything like this. Basically, I just walked right in. No metal detectors were at the gate. In other words, Security was a joke. I could have been armed & nobody would have noticed. With the lack of Security out of the way, I made my way into the California State Fair. The first think I noticed was that there were plenty of Midway Rides & way more concession stands. Whatever you wanted to eat it was there. Everything from fried Twinkies, Pizza, Falafel, BBQ Chicken, Catfish, Burgers & Garlic Fries. This was only the beginning. There was enough food being served to feed a third world country. I made my way into the livestock area & checked out all of the animals. Then I walked through the food area, the hot tub display & made my way to the exhibit area. It was nice to view artwork & photography from the States youth. I did stop to by a Double XX beer. It was $9.00 for a 16oz. Ouch!!!! I did check out the 9-11 Memorial & made my way to the Midway area. Somehow I didn't see any Horses! I must have taken a wrong turn! Anyway, If you are into people watching. This is the place. There are people from all walks of life. Rich, Poor, Hot, Sexy, Tweakers, Dweebies, Lowlifes & Weirdo's, You name it! They are at the Fair. In closing, here are a few tips. Bring plenty of Cash, Sunscreen & Comfortable Shoes. Have a great time at the Fair! Peace....

Yesterday afternoon around 3:15PM I pulled into the parking lot of the Giant Orange Hamburger Restaurant located at 1407 Howe Avenue. Before I even walked in, I knew what I was going to have to eat. As I entered the restaurant I took the place in. My first thought was very clean! A server greeted me & asked me where I wanted to sit. I responded, with the counter is fine. Handing me a menu the server asked me what I wanted to drink. I asked for Ice Water & a Coke. The counter was black granite & sparkly clean. The server returned in a minute or two with my drinks & to take my order. I ordered the #2. The number 2 was a Hamburger with melted Monterey Jack Cheese & Fries. As I waited for my order, I checked out the big flat screen TV & noticed the staff was working hard waiting on customers & delivering orders. All of the employees seemed to enjoy what they were doing. This matters in the restaurant business. I even spotted one of the owners "Dean" interacting with his team. In about 10 minutes or so my order arrived. It was a Huge Old Fashioned Burger with plenty of Fries. Taking the first bite I was very impressed. Talk about flavor! It was a Fantastic Burger & the Fries were fresh & crisp. You could tell these guys knew how to make a Burger! The total for my meal was $12.56. I left a $3.00 tip. In closing, I give the Giant Orange 4 out of 4 Stars! If you like a traditional Burger, you have to check this place out! In closing, tell 10 people about this place!

After 15 hours of deliberation, the jury in the George Zimmerman trial returned with a not guilty verdict. Not guilty? Personally, I thought George would have been found guilty of manslaughter. Two people got into a fight & one lost his life. This was manslaughter.

Like millions of Americans I have been watching the George Zimmerman trial. Today the light bulb went off. Watching court testimony, I finally put two & two together. During the fight Trayvon Martin was on top of George Zimmerman. Trayvon was straddling him MMA style & throwing "Headshot" punches. George Zimmerman's arms were pinned down. George couldn't get to his gun. Finally, when Trayvon was done beating up George he got up off of him. George Zimmerman then pulled his gun & shot Trayvon Martin in the chest. End of story. The big question is, was this self defense? Maybe George Zimmerman should have just realized the fight was over & let Trayvon go. What do you think? Take the poll on the left sidebar of the blog.

Once again it's time for the California State Fair at Cal Expo. Cruising the internet I was confronted with a lot of information. All I can say is if you are going to the State Fair, bring a lot of cash. It looks like you need $10.00 to park & $12.00 to get in. Also, I would imagine that you are going to be searched upon entrance into the event. So with that being said, come in & have a nice time. Check out the rides, have some drinks & enjoy the atmosphere. Personally, I like the livestock area, the horse track & the midway. This is a great venue to people watch. In closing, have fun, eat good & enjoy the scenery. Oh, & don't forget the Horse Track! Peace.............

First, let me start off by saying that I hope all of my readers have a great 4th of July. Second, as you all know I like to check out new restaurants in here in the City of Two Rivers. Quite frankly, it's been a long time since I did a restaurant review. It seems like I have dropped the ball. My apologies. However, earlier in the week I spotted a new restaurant located at 1407 Howe Avenue. This place basically popped up out of nowhere. The third time I passed this place I noticed the name. The new restaurant was called the Giant Orange. As I made my way home, I got onto the Internet & did some research. It was like a blast from the past. Looking at the website it brought a lot of memories of my youth. It turns out that the Giant Orange has been around for many years. I remember traveling with my parents up & down highway 99 thru the Central Valley. On each side of Highway 99 near Madera & Merced there were two Hamburger stands. They were basically Large Orange Balls with a sign out front advertising Hamburgers. For years, even though I always wanted to stop & check it out, I was just a kid. I didn't call the shots. My dad did. 40 years later I'm driving down Howe Avenue & spotted this new restaurant. Hey man, I was stocked! Looking at their website I noticed that they were closed on Sundays. I can respect that. So anyway, with the backdrop written, here is my story. Yesterday was the 4th of July. It was around noon & I was starving. The game plan was to go to the Giant Orange, have lunch & write a review. As I made the drive to the restaurant I was so hungry. I wanted a Killer Burger, Fries & a Chocolate Shake. Money was no object. Do you feel me? Then it happened. Pulling into the parking lot of the Giant Orange I discovered that they were closed! Hello? I thought that they were only closed on Sundays. Give me a break already! There was a sign in the window that said closed on the 4th of July. I was angry & so hungry. So now what? I decided to make my way to Original Mel's located at 565 Howe Avenue & have lunch. Walking in the door I was greeted by my server & led to a booth. Not many people were in Mel's. I asked for a menu & a glass of water. When my server returned I placed my order. I ordered a Hot Pastrami Sandwich with fries & a Coke. All things considered, it was not a bad lunch. The total for my meal was $9.05. I left a $3.00 tip. In closing, Mel's saved the day & I give them 2 1/2 stars out of 4. Hope you are having a great weekend. I will check out the Giant Orange & post my review soon. Please be patient!

Today was a hell of a day. It was to say the least very stressful. But hey, isn't that the case for everyone? I made my way home in the afternoon heat & checked my mailbox. Wednesday is junk mail day. All kinds of stuff to look at. As I thinned out my mail, I kept two ads. First was the Bonfare Market ad & second was the Savemart ad. When I walked into my flat the first thing I did was turn on the A/C. Then I looked at the Bonfare ad. They have some good deals. Like two gallons of milk for $5.99. Then they have Hamburger buns for $1.49. A dozen eggs for $1.99, Tuna for $1.19 a can & Crystal Butter for $3.99. Now that's a good deal. Then I checked out the Savemart ad. New York Steaks on sale, along with BBQ sauce for 99 cents & Bud Light for $17.99 a 30 pack. Take the time & review the ads. In this economy, it's all about saving money! Have a great 4th of July! Peace.

It's been awhile since I talked about my Summer Garden. Many of my longtime readers know that I have planted crops outside of my flat here in the City of Two Rivers. With a limited amount of sunlight I am happy to report that I have 47 Green Cherry Tomatoes! Not bad huh? I have cucumber, pumpkin & radishes planted as well. The big question is how is your Garden? Be strong & stay cool.

As the heat stroke settles in I must make the effort to write my Friday night post. Hey man, it's Hot. Today when I got off of work I made my way to my car & got in. Starting the motor I looked at my dashboard & noticed that the temperature was 116 degrees. Yeah buddy! As I made my way home the temperature dropped to 107. When in all honesty the temperature was actually 103. Not bad huh? Oh well. Just another day in the City of Two Rivers. One thing I noticed on my way home, I was on Richards Boulevard near the Highway 160 turn off (Left Turn) looking out my side window. I was driving home in my 4,000 lb. Air Conditioned American Made Ride listening to my Stereo in comfort, I noticed a guy walking on the sidewalk with a sign. As this guy was walking back & forth in the heat I read his sign, it said: Educated & Unemployed, Educated & Homeless. Right then I counted my blessings. That could have been me out in the sweltering heat walking with a sign like that. So, if anyone of my readers wants to build up some Karma points, head over to Richards Blvd. near the Old Battery Bills building & find this guy, hook him up with a job & change his life. He will be very grateful. Have a great weekend & stay cool.

I wanted to take a minute & talk about the cyber attack on Bel Air & Raley's customers here in California. Basically, this story has pretty much been swept under the rug. A few news agencies reported it in a very small story. They told readers to check their statements etc. The other day while I was at work I overheard two of my co workers who shop at Bel Air in Elk Grove talk about the scam involving their debit cards. Both of them had been hacked & were trying to clean up the fallout. They talked quietly like they were violated & ashamed. What a mess. In all honesty, they were simply buying groceries after work & they got ripped off. My question is, why is this story so hush-hush? Nothing like having some hacker snake out your bank account while you are just picking up a few items for dinner. If you have read any of my articles, I have mentioned in the past when you slide your debit card & enter your pin number you are giving the merchant access to your bank account. Not a good idea. Keep in mind the hackers that are trying to access this data. If you are shopping for groceries, use a credit card or just pay in cash. Most credit card companies will hold you liable for $50.00 in charges. So why open the door to your bank account? Hello? In closing, stay safe & pay cash. Have a great weekend.

As many of you know the George Zimmerman trial is underway. Keep in mind that the State of Florida has the Stand Ground Law. Also, in Florida they have a different view on carrying firearms. I did watch the opening arguments of the case. My question is where did George Zimmerman hire his legal team? Did they have a folding card table outside of a Big Lots or what? Honestly, where did he find these people? I tell you what, If I was on Trial for Second Degree Murder the last thing I would want is to have my attorney telling a Knock Knock joke to the Jury. Ok, with opening statements out of the way I was rather impressed with George Zimmerman's attorney catching Rachel Jeantel age 19 in a lie on the stand today. But keep in mind that we are at the beginning of the Trial. Here's how I look at the situation so far. Both Travon Martin & George made some serious mistakes on the night that Travon Martin lost his life. Correct me if I am wrong, but George Zimmerman was a Community Watch person. George Zimmerman was not wearing a uniform. Correct? George Zimmerman was in plain clothes in the dark of the night. As a matter of fact, George Zimmerman called police & they advised him not to follow Travon Martin. This is in the court records. When you work Security, you are a deterrent to crime. Your job is to observe & report. You contact Law Enforcement when needed. George Zimmerman did not do this. Instead he followed Travon Martin. On the other hand, while Travon Martin was on the phone with Rachel Jeantel, he told her that some guy was following him. Rachel Jeantel told Travon to run. Travon did not run. Instead, he confronted George Zimmerman & a fight ensued. When things got ugly, George Zimmerman pulled his 9mm handgun & shot Travon. Both parties were at fault. Travon should have ran & George should have not followed Travon. So what do you think? Should George Zimmerman be convicted? Post your comments & let me know.
