Fabian Wealth Strategies was on KTLA this morning giving some tips to young women.
Interesting fact is that people in the US save -2% of their earnings. That means we are in debt!
Germans save 8% and Japan 15%!
Living beyond our means is the biggest problem. Buying things we don’t “really” need.
We are trying to get the word out about this event, especially to foster families and group homes.
There’s an event coming up in less than two weeks. I saw it on the KTLA news this morning with Michaela Pereira.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).

They are in their 6th year.

Granville in Burbank on San Fernando is participating in this offer. We went recently and found the food to be very good.
Click the link above and then search for Granville or Burbank restaurants.
Firefly in South Pasadena is also participating.
There are rumblings Morton’s is coming to Pasadena. There is speculation that Morton’s is possibly moving into the old Holmstead store location which is in the Playhouse District on Colorado.
It is possible that another steak house will move in and that the location is different.
Roy’s is set to open their new Pasadena location in the next two months. Roy’s will be a great new addition to Pasadena and especially the Playhouse District.
More to follow….

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. The weather in LA is almost like summer. Very clear and warm. The pollen is being blown all over as the windws and flowers blossom.
Even the Oak trees are releasing pollens.
This must be a tough time for those who have allergies.
Happy Easter Sunday to all.

There are three coffee roasters in Pasadena.
This morning we stopped in at Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters a fairly recent newcomer to the Pasadena area as the micro coffee roaster industry continues to expand.
Jameson BRown is located near the Goldline stop at Allen.
The corner location is great and the insde the facility is open and very clean.
For a great cup of coffee Jameson Brown is one of the best places in Pasadena, surely giving Starbucks a run for the money.

We talked to the owner today about them bringing in an Australian and Chinese coffee and talked about the coffee from Maui being just as good as the beans from Kona. Kona Coffee is world renowned but also very expensive. Maui coffee is less expensive and just as good.
Our coffee for this morning was Sumatra, Jennifer liked it so much that we bought a half-pound too.
More on Jameson Brown sooon.
If you live in Pasadena and enjoy a good cup of coffee you have to make a point to stop in.

You may or may not want a Google Adsense Sticker. But here’s the info anyway….
Stick ’em up!
If you’re well versed in webspeak, you’re probably familiar with the concept of stickiness — the quality that entices web users to stick around a given site. Here at AdSense, we’re down with the web version of stickiness, but we’ve got a different kind of adhesive in mind: the kind that lets you take the AdSense logo a-go-go.
That’s right, we’re talking stickers.
We’ve printed up a batch of AdSense stickers, and we’d be delighted to send one or two your way, wherever you are in the world. The stickers are designed for laptops, but they’ll work just as well for placement on mugs, skateboards, or temporarily on a shirt. (Note: turning a pal into a walking Google ad without their knowledge is not recommended.)
So how do you get one of these glue-backed masterpieces? Easy: send us a self-addressed, stamped envelope with enough postage to return 1 oz of sticker goodness to you from our office in California via standard U.S. mail. (Sorry, we can’t help you calculate the postage to your location). Send your envelope, along with a note if you’d like, to:
c/o Arlene Lee
1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View, CA 94043
Supplies are limited, so send your envelope soon! Then you can stick with AdSense wherever you go. (And one last thing to keep in mind: while we’re flattered that you might want a whole box, note that we’re only able to provide one or two per publisher.)
This is a special beta page that will get you right in!
Here’s the info:
New Sequoia-backed visual search engine SearchMe is just starting to send invitations to their private beta, which launched last week. The company says there are 30, 000 people now on the waiting list. But if you want to get in now, just click here and enter your email. The first 1,000 people get in immediately.
You will want to hurry they are going fast!
