I was so excited to be able to give you a great lead on a good, super super cheap place for clothing alterations – Original Hems Studio at 23034 Lake Forest Drive. My girlfriend, who is very picky, highly recommended them, said they only charge $2 to hem a pair of pants.
For my first (and only) visit, all I can say is thank God I didn’t give them expensive and/or new clothing to repair. I brought in 5 pairs of jeans, all of which had frayed at the bottom because I didn’t hem them when I should have, when they were new. I instructed them to create a new hemline slightly above the highest area of fraying whether that highest point was on the left leg or right. But that’s not what happened. On all pants, one leg was longer than the other and on some hems, the front of the leg wasn’t the same length as the other side. Not on all, but a few, the hem line wasn’t sewn straight but followed a curvy line. The owner and the young women tried to convince me it was because the way the jeans were sewn originally. They did offer to repair all the work and said would be ready next day. I was thinking about it, but then she asked if I wanted the new hem to be the same length as the shorter or longer hem. I just picked up all the pants and left. Ok, so my newfound $2/hem dream place is no longer a reality. From now on, I’ll go to the place at Laguna Hills Mall next to Macy’s on the side of the mall facing the medical center. They only charge $6/hem.
You may know already that the smaller Ralph’s market at Trabuco and Alicia is gone. In its place will be Smart & Final Express opening September 12th. It’s my understanding that the ‘express’ stores are the size of a regular grocery store vs their ‘Extra’ stores which are larger than their warehouse stores.
So what do you think of the Haggen’s Market that has replaced a few Vons and Albertson’s markets in So Cal? My local store tells me that by December, 45% of what they carry will be organic! They have a commitment to local, and over the next 30-60 days, they’ll be continuing to convert new stores and “Haggen-izing” their already converted stores. They’ll be introducing three-day weekend sales, signature items throughout the store, dedicated end caps for gluten-free, local and new items. Those are just some of the ways they’re working to drive excitement and traffic into their stores.
There’s an event coming up this Saturday afternoon in Laguna Woods that some of you may have an interest in. It’s an introduction to Bruno Groening, a famous healer from the 1930’s-1950’s who had a simple method that he said anyone can do themselves just by connecting with a higher power.
Although he died in 1959, the results of his healings were well documented, and they continue to be as people worldwide continue to practice his teachings to give and receive healing. Groening never charged for healing nor does anyone to this day. This is a mission of love.
The Bruno Groening Circle of Friends, which is what they call these community meetings, was honored by the Members of the United Nations affiliated Organization World Peace Prayer Society with the Peace Pole Award on May 23, 2013 which took place in the ecumenical Tillmann Chapel of the U.N. at the invitation of the United Nations Staff Recreation Councils SaluS.
Panda Express facing Los Alisos, in the shopping center at Marguerite Parkway and Santa Margarita Parkway where there’s CVS Pharmacy, Ralph’s Market, McDonald’s, and the Pet Store Warehouse.
Also at the same intersection but across the street is a new Auto Club Office next to Petco in the Sprout’s Farmer’s Market shopping center where there’s also Yogurtland and Claim Jumper Restaurant.
And some good news for anyone who gets cold sores or canker sores, Sprout’s now carries the two problem solvers I developed over 20 years ago. The first, Cold Sores Begone Stick™, a chapstick that stops a cold sore from surfacing at the early warning tingle. www.Cold Sores Begone.com.
Second, Canker Sores Begone Stick™, which within 24-36 hours, heals a mouth ulcer inside the mouth (on or under tongue, inside cheeks, roof of mouth, inside lips). www.CankerSoresBegone.com
Do you know anyone overseas who could use either remedy? We now ship international orders for which there’s a flat shipping fee of $10, maximum 5 pieces per order. There’s a moneyback guarantee but the shipping fee is not included. (888) 877-6315.
1 Day Workshop: Psychic Kids with James Van Praagh
Saturday, April 11th at 10am to 5pm
Event: For gifted and intuitive children age 12-18
This is a one of a kind experiential workshop to empower your children to embrace and correctly become aware of how to use and trust their intuition and mediumistic abilities. Children are very empathetic and have not yet learned the limitedness and judgment of the human mind.They need gain knowledge, power and encouragement to listen and honor their inner wisdom. Providing the right guidance, it can assist the child in remaining centered in their truth as they grow older.Class Requirements
Must be between 12 and 18 years old. No exceptions.
I’m a business owner and recently re-launched my two products this past January, Cold Sores Begone Stick™ and Canker Sores Begone Stick™. Unless you’re a small business owner, you can’t imagine all the work, obstacles, long hours, no vacations – in fact no days off and, hopefully, eventual joy with a product (or service) that both improves the quality of someone’s life and allows me to make a living.
If you are prone to cold sores (outer lips) or canker sores (inside mouth), you’ll be interested in this.
You know that ‘tingle’ when you feel a cold sore coming on? Cold Sores Begone Stick™ is now an all natural balm stick. Apply at the early warning symptom to instantly prevent your cold sore from surfacing, even if on-the-go. Cool? www.ColdSoresBegone.com
Or are agonizing canker sores inside the mouth the problem? How about a remedy that’s all natural, doesn’t sting, and typically heals the canker overnight, or perhaps in a day or two. Canker Sores Begone Stick™, a soft balm stick, is small enough to always keep with you, and starts to soothe immediately. www.CankerSoresBegone.com
Not to worry, both are organic and safe even for very young children.
Both items available now in all Mother’s Market locations, and soon, Sprout’s Farmer’s Market. Otherwise, they can be purchased from the websites.
