Hot with a Chance of Muggy

Best Pepper Sticks from the Pork Shop

Greetings again from Queen Creek / San Tan Valley. As my last poll shows I have a couple of followers but not too many. I love it just the same. For those of us who took my last poll it looks like Fresh and Easy beat out McDonald's.

I'm seeing nice fluffy clouds floating over the neighborhood today but it looks like rain to the east again. A girl can still hope.

For those of you who visit the Queen Creek Pork Shop, just a reminder that they close for the month of August. Next Saturday is the last day to buy your products until September. I stocked up on my favorite pepper sticks today and some bacon to get me through August.

Here's to a great week! Cheers.

McDonalds or Fresh and Easy? New Poll

My poll topic today is dear to my heart. The San Tan Valley area is still starving for good fun restaurants and shops. There is a Fresh and Easy building at Ironwood and Ocotillo that has been built but never opened. This frustrates me to no end. Is the reason it has been standing emply the economy? I'm sort of tired of hearing this as an excuse. Yes, the economy is bad but we still have plenty of population here and a working population at that. Check out Ironwood or Ellsworth on any weekday morning at 7:30. You will see cars galore headed out to work. Albeit they are headed to other cities to work but they are working just the same.

We so need some good businesses around here. So here is my poll question this week. If a business was being built near your home would you prefer a McDonald's or a Fresh and Easy Market?

Happy 4th of July from Queen Creek / San Tan Valley

4th of July greetings my blog reading friends. Although there were not many partakers the results of my first poll are in. I'd like to thank anyone who took the poll and especially those who left comments.

The question was, Do you feel that illegal immigration lessens your chances for employment?

The answers were, 16% polled said yes. 66% voted no. 50% were said indirectly and 50% said that they were Arizona residents.

Granted I only had about 5-6 people answer the poll, I guess that is a start.

There are a few 4th of July events going on this week in the area.

The Queen Creek Olive Mill has some daytime activities if you don't want to do your own grilling. They will be grilling in the grove. By the way, if you have not tried their cupcakes, please do. They are awesome!

Of course there are fireworks tonight at Schnepf Farms. The Kiwanis Club hosts this event. See the following link for more information.

Secondly, your patronage would be helpful for this event as they have struggled with breaking even on this event the past few years. Please click this link for an article about the club and the fireworks show.

Apache Junctions is also holding some day long festivities at the Apache Junction High School. This link will provide a little more information.

So here's to a fun and safe holiday.Happy 4th of July!
