Thank You all for the wonderful birthday wishes.

We spent a magical birthday at Temecula, a small historic old town of the wild west in the Inland Empire. Temecula Valley is Southern California’s wine country, with over 40 wineries. There are a wide range of outdoor recreational activities, the largest casino in the state at Pechanga Resort and a bustling nightlife.

The name Temecula comes from the Luiseño Indian word “Temecunga” meaning “sun” and “-ngna” meaning “place of”. The Spanish translated it to mean “Where the sun breaks through the mist”. The hilly landscape is so picturesque, you might think you’re in Tuscany.

Today, we honor the men and women who gave their lives to protect and defend our county, so we can pursue our happiness.
Let us never forget that “Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.”- Unknown

God Bless America, our home sweet home, and keep her safe from outside and inside foes and fools.
