The Foothill Farms area is a part of Sacramento with a lot of parks and things to do. The Neighborhood Watch is always in effect to try and keep everyone in the community safe and feeling secure. With Citrus Heights not too far away, there’s plenty of places to shop and have fun as well.
During my recent stay in Seattle, Washington, my family took me to many wonderful attractions. I’ve seen the iconic Space Needle, visited the gigantic South Center Mall, and even took a stroll through wild Chinatown. Yet, I was completely amazed when strolling through the Pike Place Farmer’s Market in downtown Seattle, a place I expected to be very simple and plain beforehand.
When my uncle said, “Lets go to the farmer’s market,” during our walk downtown, I just followed along without any sort of excitement. From most of the farmer’s markets I’ve seen in Sacramento, I expected Pike Place to be roughly identical. An area which farmers and the community gathered to buy fruits, vegetables and other products. Then I actually took a glimpse at the scene. It was as if the market was fused with the neighboring buildings and restaurants.
To most of my left I saw stands of vegetables and fruit, and even some bouquets of flowers. To my right there were restaurants ranging from barbeque, bakery and even a Chinese deli. With Seattle being a port city, there were stands with stacks of various seafood, including shrimp the size of my hand and fish larger than my arms.
The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. I always thought a farmer’s market was strictly of produce. Here in Seattle, I saw more than the title.
WARNING: Viewing this video will give you a first person view of Pike Place.

On Thursday, August 24th, I visited the George Sims Community Center, and I could not help but notice a group was giving free food. I talked to two gentlemen and they said the event was meant to rasie awareness about the school program “SAVA” and “Advance Path”. Advanced Path is a computer based learning system, but if a computer is not your type of learning style you can go to SAVE where they use a book based style of learning. Check out my video to find out more.
I went back to Wellspring Women’s Center because back when they had the handout for the school supply’s my mother asked if they had any resources for her and my nieces. They gave her a handout, and also said they would give the girls their last two backpacks. Like I said before Wellspring is an awesome and loving place. It is located at 3414 4th avenue phone number is 916-454-9688.
I decided to do this weeks video on the 66th annual Buddhist festival, held at the Sacramento Buddhist Church located on Riverside Blvd. This video is basically what I experienced attending the event. I try to take lots of photos of interesting things that caught my eye, but found myself distracted by all the diverse food booths.
Hello there! In this video I am addressing (and ranting just a tad bit) about tobacco retailers located less than 1,000 feet from schools in Sacramento, specifically about a smoke shop across the street from Tahoe Park Elementary School, while also touching on the status of the tobacco ordinance presented to the City Council.
