Just add salt
Scott Andrade of Camarillo had been working in corporate America for decades when his moment of introspection came. Perhaps it was the fact that instead of being referred to by his name, his identity had dwindled down to just his ID number. Or maybe he ...

Reminiscing about fun, simpler times in Midtown Ventura
While I had been a fan of the original hole-in-the-wall eatery, it was a bit cramped and loud, though clearly a beloved place among the locals. After taking several months to renovate, the latest rendition of Casa de Soria is a blast from the past, at ...

Hardware is an elusive constraint on user experience
There's a hard wall. But we try to build the cage big enough so there are options for programmers. A quad core Android phone with a gigabyte of memory is a pretty big cage. Sometimes when programmers feel constrained, they're just being lazy. There's ...

One large tank fit for occupancy by one human. 50 pounds of sea salt. Add one human for one and a half hours. Rinse, wash human, repeat as needed. All of these circumstances — it’s hard to pinpoint just one — led Andrade to floating. I really wasn’t looking for a job [when I found floating]. I needed to do something. I was looking for something. It wasn’t until a year ago that Andrade found floating and its therapeutic benefits. While living off his severance package and attending massage therapy school, he found out about it and, well, dove in. He started going to the Float Clinic in Torrance, which happened to be on the way to his niece’s house. But he wasn’t always going to be able to make such a drive for his desired therapy sessions, and found that there was a void of float centers in Ventura County. With his soft grand opening on Saturday, June 6, he is modest about his new venture, saying that he isn’t about self-promotion but rather about ways to heal, relax, feel better, etc. While floating dates back thousands of years to when the.
Casa de Soria . 1961 E. Thompson Blvd. I have more than likely reminisced in other food reviews about my time living in and visiting Mexico and taking in the ambience of mom-and-pop taquerias along the coast of Baja. When visiting the recently renovated and expanded Casa de Soria in Midtown Ventura, I had an all-too-real flashback of simpler days, so much so that I didn’t want to leave. While I had been a fan of the original hole-in-the-wall eatery, it was a bit cramped and loud, though clearly a beloved place among the locals. After taking several months to renovate, the latest rendition of Casa de Soria is a blast from the past, at least for me. With iconic Mexican decorations — classic images of mariachi bands, banner displays of the Mexican flag, detailed tiles, etc. — adorning the walls. the two special seating areas, one where a small family can host a celebration with a closed door and the other one being with fixtures associated with the taco shops of Baja, I was more than happy with my re-acquaintance of a reinvented favorite. It was just after noon on a Wednesday when my companion and I strolled in. We could have sat inside or on the spacious patio, but it was a bit June gloomish so we opted for a booth inside.

Howard Miller Spokane Wall Clock, Brushed Aluminum
Amazing!!!! Was shocked that the product surpassed the price of the clock. Once on our kitchen wall it looks like it costs a couple hundred dollars. Love the retro look and the fact I can read the time. It replaced a clock that was difficult to read.
