Friday night movies, Most excellent water, AIRFEST 2013

The signs are up that the Friday night family movies begin again this coming Friday, the 12.
So grab your favorite comfy camping chair and footrest, and come  on down to the Firehouse at Dark O'Clock and enjoy a nice family feature film.  It's really fun, reminiscent of the old "drive in" days.
Popcorn and beverages are served (or bring your own) and the whole thing costs exactly ZERO.  Thanks Cascade Shores Womens Club!   The series is I think through the month of July (Fridays)
Scotts Flat Lake AND  Lost Mine Lake are most excellent right now!  SF is refreshing and cool, and LML is warm.  LML has been treated to control the plant life, and looks nice and clear now.  I took the chihuahua's (KT and Butters) along with Franke the Houndy and all learned how to swim at the dog beach.  It was so fun!  I think they'll be ready for the big lake now.
The Cascade General Store is really cranking out some pretty good food.  Please go try, and support the wonderful family that is trying to make a go of the place.  Grab snacks, drinks and lots of other cool stuff.  They've got it pretty well stocked.
This weekend (Friday night and Saturday) is the bi-annual Grass Valley Airfest. Friday night is a dinner dance (we're just going to the dance part, $15 for the BEST  Moonlight Swing Band.  Seriously, these guys are so great.  It's just amazing to sit outside on a warm summer night surrounded by beautiful vintage planes and cars, listening to that era music.  It's a huge band, and they dress in WWII uniforms, and have great vocalists. Real nostalgia.  Totally worth the price of admission.  Saturday is a full day of everything an airplane fan could want.  My fav is the gorgeous Chrome P51 Mustang.  He comes every time.  Such a beautiful plane.  Come down and support this great show and you will not be sorry!
Wow, real estate prices are moving up.  There have been some great sales lately.  Still deals out there though.  If you just go to and put in your cascade shores address,  the right column will show you recent sales and houses for sale.  Give you a good idea of what the market is doing.
