Care to join us in the Pomona Holiday Parade?

Calling all Pomona bloggers and blog readers! We're putting together a float (well, probably more like a small pick-up truck) for the Pomona Holiday Parade. Care to join us? We need to submit the names of all the blogs that will be represented on the float by this Wednesday. Please shoot an e-mail to if you can join us. Here are the details:

Parade date: December 11

Time: We'll gather at 9AM in the south east parking lot at 3rd and Gibbs. Parade starts at 10AM.

What we'll do: We'll have a couple runners along side the pick-up handing out fliers and, if we can figure out how to pay for it, candy. The fliers will describe what a blog is and will list the names of all the blogs represented on the float. And, of course, we'll wave and look merry.

What to wear: We can discuss this later. But plan on wearing something. Perhaps we can all wear blues? Or maybe that rockin' t-shirt shop downtown can hook us up with some sweet Pomona Ps shirts (you know, the six Ps in the wagon wheel shape).

Holler back.

A Holiday Extra

I was just at Stater Brothers and on my way out noticed that there were some guys working on the abandoned gas station on the northeast corner of Alvarado and Garey. They had out a ladder and were working on the lights. So what to my wondering eyes is this?

Looking closer I noted that there was a banner stating that this would be a Christmas Tree lot. So we'll have some festive activity on a long dormant corner.

Now I just hope that they've gotten all their permits so that the city gets its due!

November 2--VOTE

Tomorrow, November 2 is election day.

While M-M-M-My Pomona is a place where diverse opinions often clash, I'm sure that all of us here at can agree, your vote counts. Regardless of party, candidates supported, or issues, PLEASE, get out and vote.

In Pomona, we have two tax initiatives, one for an increase in the utility tax, and a parcel tax for schools in PUSD. In Districts 2, 3, and 5 we have council seats up for election.

If you need to know where to vote, you can get polling place information at Just type in your address and it will tell you where to go and vote.

The message? VOTE.
