Coworkers go here, I've never been.  They mentioned great service, they put the stand on for you, trim the tree, and help you load the tree unto your car.  A bit of a drive from Irvine, especially with a tree strapped to your roof.  30 minutes local streets if you want to avoid freeway.

Nancy Pelosi got relected as the Democrat leader for the House of Rep.

This ineffect rejects the voters call for change. I read an article the GOP are happy Pelosi won.

Any thoughts peppy?

I don't have a problem with that. There is a bit of a rift but she still got elected on a roughly 2:1 split. Not sure what it is that you are trying to get at ...

The problem with that the same leadership is in place and meaning the same strategy will be the same. They did not win the presidency, and did not win the senate majority.  Like I previously said, because they are leaving out the blue collar worker.

If Ellison wins the DNC chair, don't even think about winning 2020.

I almost bought one of these in early 2014, in fact USC signed me in at the sales office there... My wife liked the plan 1 with loft and the layout was good but a few things turned us off about the community.

1) Though it's only a few min from Irvine Blvd, going all the way up the hill,to get to these homes made the area feel too remote.  I actually like PS for its remoteness but this felt like the most remote area of an already remote village / if that makes sense.

2) Have you driven on or by these streets?  Everything feels super cramped together and the streets are narrow as-is.  There's almost no street parking at night and it narrows the road even more making the entire place feel like a condo community.

3) Lots are small but that doesn't seem to bother most Irvine residents so it's probably not that.

That being said, actually seems like a good value here as far as $ / sq ft. When they were selling, they had a standing inventory Plan 1 we wanted.  Was listed for $1.05M and they were anxious to accept any offer, called me multiple times and pretty much said if I could offer high 900's they would seriously consider it (which probably means they would take it).  In the end we decided against even making an offer as this was a flag lot and didn't like the overall feel of the neighborhood, but we both still like the layout of these homes.

Not everything is based upon GDP growth.

Just look at the amount of people out of jobs in the market in 08/09 vs 16. HUUUUUUUUUUGE /trump voice

Food stamps? That's a whole nother enchilida right there.

So GDP growth is not an indicator of the healthiness of the economy?

Anyone who has a full time job should not be getting food stamps.

Hi Socal!, Things are going well. The Lord has blessed my business and November and December months has been crazy busy, busier than my summer months. :) 

Twins are in first grade and they are doing well. One of our boy's teacher wanted to meet with Ms. Panda and I at 7:30am today and we were worried that he may have caused some kind of  trouble, but to our surprise she talked about how well he is doing in class. That made my day.

Hey I saw you ask about Benihana. That was my dad's favorite restaurant and we dined there quite often during my teenage years. We actually dined at Benihana in Alpharetta last week and the twins love the habachi smoking choo choo train performed by the chef and soy sauce in the coke bottles. I am sure your family will enjoy Benihana as well.

Panda, how are things down south? How are the twins doing? I wonder what grade they're in now.

Model homes will be 100% complete by February of 2017, but they are open for dusty/hard hat tour so you can see layout and home designs.   Come and take advantage of our pre-model pricing.

Obama gave GM a loan. We got paid back, with interest. For 1.5 million jobs.
Trump gave Carrier millions. No payback. For 800 jobs.

Will Trump still penalize Carrier for outsourcing 1,300 jobs to Mexico?

It seems like you think Obama is a good job creator and contributing to the economy. Why is our GDP growth stays around 1%? 45 million citizens on food stamps under his reign vs 32 mil in 2009.
