Greet Everyone.
Smile. Wave.
It is more important than you can ever imagine!

All great neighborhoods have one simple underlying characteristic that is common across the board, they are friendly neighborhoods! Kids laughter in the air and smiling faces. A simple hello from a neighbor can be the difference between a good or dull day. Humans are social creatures and exchanging greetings makes us feel happy and safe even if it is with strangers or acquaintances. We seek public settings where we can comfortably connect with one another and therefore the more opportunities there are for connecting the richer and happier our lives become.
The hurried isolation that modern life has brought into our lives minimizes human contact and leads to loneliness. Rushing from place to place, and then driving into the garage and closing the door, or leaving early and arriving back in late in the evening. Our lifestyles do not give us much of a chance to interact. So, whenever you get the chance, make it your mission to spread a little cheer, wave at your fellow neighbors, chat over the weekend. Find chances to organize a street gathering or potluck supper. It gives everyone a chance to the socialize and create a great community to live in.
Halloween is right around the corner! Why not place a table in your driveway and invite your neighbors to bring their pumpkin carving tools and enjoy the fun together!

Now You’ve Seen It All

Former Department of Water and Power employee, Tony Dighera, retired and bought an organic farm, which he named Cinagro farms. Cinagro is organic spelled backwards.

Dighera spent the next four years and close to $500,000 to develop something truly unique: A Frankenstein-head pumpkin that he calls pumpkinstein.
All that expense and time went into creating a special mold that grows the head into its unique shape. Was it worth the cost? Pumpkinsteins net Dighera $75 each and he can produce nearly 6,000 per season.

For Fun: A Brief Chat with God

A man walked to the top of a hill to talk to God. The man asked, “God, what’s a million years to you?” and God answered, “A minute.

Then the man asked, “Well, what’s a million dollars to you?” and God said, “A penny.

Then the man asked, “God…..can I have a penny?” and God said, “Sure…..in a minute.”
