  Today, June 6, 2012, Google has dedicated their home page to the anniversary of the Drive-In Theatre.   The drive-in theater was the creation of Richard M. Hollingshead Jr., from Camden NJ. In 1932, Hollingshead began testing his innovative idea of an outdoor theatre and on May 16, 1933, Hollingshead was given a patent for his invention.   Hollingshead's drive-in opened in New Jersey on June 6, 1933, on Admiral Wilson Boulevard and could accommodate up to 400 cars. He advertised his drive-in theater with the slogan, "The whole family is welcome, regardless of how noisy the children are”.The first film shown was”Wife Beware”. His theatre was only open three years but other states began having these theaters as the trend caught on.   These theatres had their peak across the nation in th...

View the Beauty of Springtime Flowers in Redlands CA Today while hiking in Loma Linda and Redlands, CA, I saw so many lovely flowers in bloom. This is such a wonderful time of the year when the cool weather disappears and the spring flowers bloom and bring color into our lives. Every where you look, colorful flowers are enriching our lives.   Seller Tips: Curb Appeal is so important when getting your home ready to sell. Flowers are so pretty and colorful and attract buyers plus they will remember your home with the nice front yard. Hanging baskets, color bowls on the porch, or planted bedding plants will perk up the home. Remember curb appeal is so important because if you cannot get them out of the car, they will never see how lovely your home inside is. What is your favorite flower? F...

Look Who is Monkeying Around     This week I was at the Philadelphia Zoo in Pennsylvania. It open in 1874 and was the first zoo in the United States. It had 813 animals and now houses over 1300 animals; over 300 species and subspecies.     My absolutely favorite place at the zoo is to watch the monkeys. The zoo keeps their Gorillas in a wonderful 2.5 Acre Inside/Outside Primate Reserve. These gorillas are called Western Lowland Gorillas from Africa and are commonly known as “Silverbacks.” They are now considered an endangered species due to the Ebola virus and to illegal poaching. Facts: Gorillas are the largest and heaviest living primates; males 300-600 lbs, 6 ft tall and females about half the weight and approx. 5 ft tall. They eat termites, seeds and grass. The zoo feeds them all ty...

  Birds on Vacation in Pennsylvania   While on vacation this week on the East Coast, we spent a few days in the wonderful and inspirational city of Philadelphia, PA. I continually took pictures of birds I saw during my travels.     This little guy was following me around at Liberty Hall and the Liberty Bell in downtown Philadelphia.       This bird was taken nearby our hotel at the Marriot in the downtown area.   I found this guy on a wire near Front Street where we had lunch. These photos were taken at the Philadelphia Zoo.   This was taken near the Museum of Art in Philadelphia. This was taken in Lancaster, PA...one of my favorite places.   This photo was taken at the 9-11 Memorial at Shanksville, PA. He was the loudest of all and just keep squakwing at us for at least 5 minutes. I wa...

  I’ll Save Money if Sell My Own House Instead of Calling a Realtor; NO…….15 Reasons Why You Really Lose Money.   1.    Did you know that only about 5% of the homes listed by FSBO sell? The rest of the homeowners either get frustrated and decide not to sell or they call an experienced Realtor to list their home.   2.    Approximately 80% of FBSO’s call a Realtor for assistance after a long and unsetting experience and the other 15% just decide not to sell and most remain unhappy about this situation. In another year, they will call a Realtor as they will remember what a bad experience they had.   3.    If the homeowner then gets disgusted and takes their home off the market for a few months or years, they will probably net less money as prices continue to go down.   4.    Do you realize...

  An Enchanting Site..... Sit and Dream   I took this picture the other day when I was at the beach. It just seemed so inspiring and had me sitting there thinking. Sometimes we tend to get wrapped up in wanting more and more and never stopping to appreciate what we have around us like good friends, good health, a job or career, family, your pets, our freedom, church, a garden, time to do crafts, volunteer work and the list can go on and on……..   So I am hoping that all readers will add to my list by stopping to comment about what they are grateful for. Please feel free to add a picture as well.   *I will start and the list above is my list plus I must add all my good friends on ActiveRain too.   This picture was taken on the California Coastline by Kristin Hamilton.   If you are looking...

  I drive by this stable in Redlands, CA daily and typically I can never pull over and take any pictures but yesterday I had my chance. With camera in hand, I took them as they were walking around eating.   In the south end of Redlands, there are large horse properties and small stables like this one. This stable reminds me of time forgotten with fields of flowers, wooden/chain link fences and powers lines above ground.  It is such a pretty area to drive through. If you go further south, you will see huge horse stables and executive homes.   Looking at older stables like this reminds me of a simplier time when I was a kid. I always loved driving in rural areas and going on car trips. These pictures were taken in Redlands, CA by Kristin Hamilton.   Recent Posts you may have missed. New S...

  2 Baby Birds Fell Out of the Tree   Last Wednesday I had my palm trees trimmed. While cutting off limbs they found a bird’s nest. The nest fell to the ground and then the 2 baby birds fell out onto the grass. Above picture; this is the old date casing that the nest had been attached to. Here is a picture of the contractor carrying it up the ladder and placing it back into a pocket of the trunk. They put the nest and the babies back up in the tree. Then the next evening we came home and found the nest on the ground but no babies. We were out in the dark with a flashlight looking and listening for the babies but there was still sounds up high in the tree. We think the birds may have fallen through and the wind or an owl pulled the nest down but not sure! I believe the babies are still u...
