Sacramento’s Pet-A-Palooza 2013
is just a week and 1/2 away, and if I can’t find a reason to make you want to attend… well, then I think I’m gonna have to check you for a pulse.
It’s no secret – I love animals and always have. To me, there’s hardly anything cuter than a fluffy feather-light kitten or wobbly floppy-eared puppy. Cows – love them too. Mice – I have a soft spot for ‘em. Snakes – It depends on how and where we meet, but I did enjoy a nice cuddle with one once…
Anyway, you know the quote by Gandhi that goes something like this: ‘The greatness of a society can be measured by how well it treats its animals’? Well, it’s events like these, that in my opinion too, take our society up a notch in emotional evolution.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun doing it!
The Fun Stuff:
HINDER, Vicci Martinez and Sara Skinner all performing Live
Pony Rides & Petting Zoo
Giant Slide and Tubs Ride
Lots of Vendors
The Feel-Good Stuff:
Animals in need up for Adoption
Rabbits visiting from the House Rabbit Society
K9 Unit Appearances
Kids + Animals = LOL
One person really can Make a Difference!

One of my favorite things about growing up as a kid in the 70′s was roller skating. Occasionally the memories flood my mind and take me back to a simpler time. So I did some research to see how the old pastime was faring these days, and I was surprised to see a flourishing roller rink market in the Sacramento area. Obviously, someone is still roller skating (probably families with kids, right?). But when there are no kids to be found, what do the young-at-heart adults do for some kid-size fun? I say we bring back some of that old school funk and relieve some of the pressures of modern life. So grab your Goodie comb and tighten those silver laces because this cornucopia of skating opportunities may blow your rainbow-colored socks right off.
Roller Skating Rinks
The Rink - 2900 Bradshaw Rd. (off Hwy. 50)
Cal Skate University - 25 Massie Ct. (off I-99)
Foothill Skate Inn - 4700 Auburn Blvd. (off Business 80)
Sunrise Rollerland - 6001 Sunrise Vista Dr. (near Sunrise & Greenback)

Ice Skating Rinks

And just wait ’til the holidays when the festive downtown rinks open, doubling your chances at stumbling upon a chance to relive a more carefree time!
The blossoms are bursting sweetly and the greenery is rapidly revealing itself; the temperatures are mild and the sky is blue and clear to see. We are all appreciating this fine fresh weather, while hoping that the impending spring storms are fertile enough to moisten the soil and add to our water supply.
But it’s an odd time in history, wouldn’t you say? Do you feel it? And what do you do about it? I write to make sense of it all, for one. I also try to regularly converse with nature in order to relax and feel connected to something much larger than myself. I try to create a balanced lifestyle that includes healthfulness and harmony of thought, feeling and deed. And, I try to have as much fun as possible.
So speaking of fun and meaning, Mother Nature and Man… this is a good weekend to start envisioning, creating and framing the rest of your life. And a little bit of abandon is a great way to loosen tense muscles and minds.
How about supporting education, art and youth by attending the premier performance of SOURCE at the Natomas Charter School Performing and Fine Arts Academy. It visually tells the story of an artist (and his muse), who journeys through life’s ups and downs, discovering that his source of inspiration is always close at hand.
WHEN: Friday, March 9 & Saturday, March 10
One of Sacramento’s greatest inventions – the SECOND SATURDAY ARTWALK – is a free self-guided grid tour of Downtown and Midtown businesses, sidewalks, streets and creations. Whether visiting art galleries, other shops that feature art, or dining establishments serving mouthwatering works of art, it’s all at your fingertips. Along the way, notice the vibrant murals that pop up here and there, or the sculptures and street art ripe for public viewing pleasure.
WHEN: Saturday, March 10

Immerse, Enjoy, Rest ~
