      We’ve had a few new members sign on recently. If you are new or old here is a good place to introduce yourself.

      I’ll start. My name is Doc, and Divotmaker and I started this forum just over two years ago. Welcome all new members and feel free to post about whatever makes you happy.

      Hiya Doc (and thanks! 😉 for starting this thread), and the rest of the EG community.
      :biggrin:
      My name is Donald, and I recently (sorta) moved into the EG area in 2010. I am a Sacramento native and lived here all my life – well, with a few short stays in apartments out in the Folsom area in apartments prior to finding my home here in EG.

      I’m 31 years old (as of this posting), and very interested in seeing what this forum has to offer. I really like the local online forums, as they obviously have A LOT, if not everything, topics that would relate and interest me. I have a pretty good sense of humor and like to be sarcastic MOST of the time. I also belong to a handful of other online forums, so hopefully my experience from those sites will help me conduct myself here 🙂 . I understand how text cannot carry my sense of humor or sarcasm, so I’ll try to make it as apparent as possible.
      But if I do step on some toes or offend you, please PLEASE know deep down I do not mean any such thing. Take it as light humor… unless you see this emoticon following my posts: 😡 😡 😡 and yes, it has to be 3-consecutive “mad” faces to be an official “angry” comment, hehe.

      I went to Sacramento City college, transferred to UC Davis – a total of 7years of higher-education; oh boy, and not a moment too soon! That is, college costs seems to only rise.
      I like to ride motorcycles… I am a car enthusiast… I like to learn new things; Especially in becoming a new home-owner, I like to learn how to maintain my house, my lawn, and whatever else to keep a nice looking place I call “home”.

      So, I’m getting married soon… and I’m Chinese (Chinese-American for those who want to be PC about it – or just American, if you like that better, haha), so it requires some special preparations to make the parents of both families happy. I went to go look up some city ordinances in a google search, and found a post in this forum about the topic – I’m not going to go into details about what I was researching until after the fact haha… nonetheless, I must say I had no idea cities/communities (ie. just the general forum with no particular interest other than residence) had such forums. I glanced through the threads and saw some pretty active posts and topics, and it’s good to know it’s alive in here 😎

      Anyway, hope to make some good acquaintances here on the forum.

      Hi, all. My name is Denny Gomez. I found this and registered as part of my community research. I produce an online internet-radio magazine RadioElkGrove.

      I like to see what is going on, what our community is doing, and of course, report on those items that are most useful to the citizens. If you know of something I should learn about, I’m all ears. And I’m not above some shameless self promotion, if it falls withing the rules of the forum.

      Great to be here. Thanks for having me.

      Hello there!
      I hope that I can come back,
      I have been gone for awhile.
      The “other” place that I was hanging out has not been very kind,
      and I am wanting to be a part of a more active,
      more INTER-active community.
      I have always felt welcome here, and want to renew my advertising status….
      i feel better already!

      Blessings,
      Lisa Schaeffer

      Well i missed it but i hear the was an odd yet beautiful sunrise this morning…Here in Sac it was said to be reddish in color. I googled it and saw that Maryland had more of a purple hue to it. I wonder what other colors were available throughout the country and the world !?

      Those are good pictures. The light this morning was a strange almost yellowish color. It reminded my of the way the light looked when we had that recent eclipse.

      Just wanted to point out this thread for some of our new members. I also created a new forum called….wait for it….. New Members Forum
      It will be a good place for new members to also ask questions. I moved a couple of threads about the technical side of the website into this forum too.

      Anyway, welcome to the website and don’t be afraid to ask questions or give your opinion.

      Hi All!

      I’m Diane and happy to be BACK in EG! I bought my house in 2002 but left a couple of years later to help out with mom and dad who were in ill health in the bay area. I was gone for 9 years, just recently retired, and now I’m back in my old (new) EG home again. It feels good to be home! I just need to find a new dentist, hair stylist, etc. Any suggestions for a great inexpensive handy man would also be much appreciated! I have a bunch of sprinklers that need fixing and some odd jobs like a kitchen faucet replacement too. There will most likely be other things popping up so I will probably reach out to you for suggestions, thanks in advance!!

      Welcome back Diane! Lucky for you there are lots of hair places here in Elk Grove. Andrea Nowak at the Boulevard behind Denny’s does quite a few people I know. Her number is 801-3305.

      I’ll check around for a Handy Man.

      Welcome back! I’m a huge fan of Dr. David Burke, Signature Dentistry on Laguna Blvd. He’s wonderful and the first dentist I’ve ever had who is virtually pain and discomfort free.

      As for a hair stylist – for contemporary styles and colors I recommend Kelly Wilson at House of Hues on Elk Grove Blvd. For simple but quality and not as pricey, I’d recommend Donna at Expressions Salon.

      I second Dr. Burke. I moved to this area in late 2000 and had gone through 4 other dentists before trying Dr. Burke. I wish I would have found him sooner.

      Great addition to the site, welcome Jacqui!

      I had not checked in across the tracks for a couple of months, and did a bit ago. Wow. What bitterness and negativity. What makes these people so angry? I remember when it was actually fun with some good people, with good ideas, and a good word for fellow members. That’s ALL gone. I guess we should expect that, given the political leaning.

      I’m not sure it is the political leaning. I see people on each side and they LIKE fighting with each other. That is what I think has changed. The folks who don’t like that are the ones who are missing in action.

      From what I’ve seen in other communities, that is the typical death spiral. Eventually the forum turns into an insult-a-thon and troll training ground. Advertisers leave and the whole thing evaporates. They aren’t quite to the insult-a-thon stage yet, but they are certainly flirting with it.

      Conservatives are happier and more positive than liberals. Too many studies and surveys not to believe that. We’re generally an optimistic group. Liberals seem to be constantly perplexed with fantasy inequities and victimization.

      Of course you all are happier. You are comforted in your ‘knowledge’.
      WE know doubt and flounder around for solutions. 8)

      Seriously, though, a good community needs all types. We are at our best when we are comforted by our own delusions, but occasionally reality-checked by the skepticism of our friends and neighbors. For example, I like being an optimistic liberal. It confuses some conservatives long enough that we can talk TO each other instead of AT each other. It’s loads of fun and I get to learn something along the way.

      Happy Monday Everyone! I am new to this Community Forum but am liking it already. I was excited to read that a Black Bear Diner is coming to town in July 2015. 🙂 Also it’s a great place to read up on gossip around town. Love it! Looking forward to sharing and reading new information in Elk Grove.
