Now if you are looking for something to do today, please try and make it out to Norco High School for the 4th Annual Norco High School Blue Diamond Brigade Car Show, this show was originally planned to be held in February, but because of rain is was postponed twice so if we have good weather today I think we should show up just to admire this groups persistance. I'm thinking "sunshine thoughts" just for you BDB. Also Highland Elementary School in Norco will be holding their 15th Annual County Fair & Car Show on May 13th and they still have space available if you would like to show your car at their event you can contact me via email or you can call (909) 596-9146 and I will get you the details.

I'd also like to remind you that the 3rd Annual Sprint Boat Races are being held this weekend at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas, this is a great way to spend an afternoon out in this wonderful Spring weather.
