Are you planning to go to the 2011 Orange County Fair? We went on a Sunday this year, and ended up getting $2 tickets since we arrived before 11 a.m. By the afternoon, the place was packed. We started our day by walking through a giant freezer to view the ice carving exhibit, which I’m […]

If you have been to the Promenade Shops at Dos Lagos recently, you probably already know that the Krikorian Theatres 15 is closed.

Future plans for the reopoened theatres include expanded […]
Bumblebee showed up at the Orange County Auto Show over the weekend. The kids were happy. The Corvette Stingray Concept (aka Sideswipe) also showed up. Dad was happy.
