Goodness - that looks tasty, but probably more of a 'last meal' sort of appetizer.....lol

It wouldn't be a first meal for me. That Sriracha sauce would put me in the grave. Sure looks good and I am sure tastes even better than it looks. There has been a big fuss about the sauce factory out here. Fumes making people ill etc. The city filed a complaint against the company and wanted them to move. Texas got wind of the trouble and started actively courting the company. The complaint was withdrawn by the city. Idiots! California is driving out all business to other states and countries. Pretty soon all that is going to be left are the immigrants and the filthy rich. The rest are going to have to move to where the jobs are. We are now a state where the immigrants are the majority. We have just lost Toyota to Texas. Sony Pictures is moving to Canada. A large drag racing enterprise has moved to Indiana. A friend of mine is moving out here from Greenwich, CT. She lives in a 6 million, 10,000 sq/ft house. She has just found out that she isn't going to get much for her money out here. My sister lives in a 5000 sq/ft home in Atherton. A real estate agent just told her she can rent out her home for $25,000/mo. She and her husband are going to do just that when they retire. They are already rich but $25,000/mo would be a nice retirement. They will move to somewhere warmer and cheaper. Wish I was in that position. Looks like it is going to be pretty bad for my DH and me.

Well, I can say we're happy with our move for retirement. The houses cost more than they do where we came from, but the amenities make up for it. We have a much better chance of living an active lifestyle here than we would if we had stayed in our country home in Ohio....there we were more or less isolated and had to drive someplace to do things like walk or swim or stuff like that. Here, everything is close by and we can be as active as we choose.

I made them. They are good too.I got some of that just to make them. To me it is hot sauce,nothing special.I did not use that much either.I was more concerned with the bacon..The salt..The fat..

My ex BIL was a paint & body man at Porsche. I was at their house & saw his pay stub laying on the kitchen counter..  Yet they lived like white trash.Both of them smoked weed.Drunks to boot.Once a year he got to drive one for a week.
I have nothing to do with either of them.They are the people I avoid.

My DS got some money when his Aunt died. Multi millionaire too.When I saw what he bought for 900k I almost fell out.Pepto B pink,in the ghetto.   But he made it into a very nice house ,took lots of money & a few years.
I never thought he would move from there.But he did just few month a ago.He got another whole bunch of money from when his dad died.This house is HUGE on the Delaware shore.Beautiful.He did not tell tell what he paid for it only that is was dirt cheap compared to CA.It has a big pond & a very large private lot.Nice.I have pics of it.

He just turned 40 & said his new life is the best to come..getting new start is good..

We have a place, a city actually out here called Laguna Woods. It is an enormous retirement community with every amenity including stables. A while back several people were selling their studio apartments for $1.00. Yes, one dollar. No one bought them. You know why? Because the HOA's are $1800.00/month. I can't wait to collect social security. I get a whopping $400.00/month. That doesn't even buy groceries, never mind a room or Medicare. I figure the day my DH retires, and if I am still alive, is the day I die. I am not physically strong enough to live on the streets.

Our 'amenity fee' is $149.74/month ~ and every homeowner pays it. It makes no difference if you are in a $2M home or a $90k home. That covers our recreation centers, town centers, parks, lakes, pools, holiday parades, golf cart paths, boce courts, tennis/pickleball/handball/etc. courts, free nightly entertainment in all 3 town squares, and all the other things I'm not even thinking about. With approximately 50,000 homes, well, you do the math. (it's a chunk of change to support a lot of things)

When you get ready to apply for SS, take the time to make an appointment with your local SS office. My SIL thought she would only get a little over $300/mo. because she did not have a long work history. I told her to ask the question, 'can I get more if you use my husband's work record for calculation?' It surprised the heck out of her when she found out she did qualify for a larger amount. But you have to ask them about it. No one volunteers the information to you.

When I was on the market for a new house, one of the things I considered was whether or not there was a HOA. Not having one was a plus. In some cases having one was a deal breaker. This community does not have one, thankfully.

Never ever again for me either. Was thrilled to move away from that.I got fined for having my garage door open. I got fined for leaving my trash can out to long.I could not plant the shrubs I wanted or a tree. I painted the front door ON my owned house yellow.They came & said I had to repaint it or get a fine.No street parking.Or you get a fine.I had to get permission to have a garage sale.Or I would be fined.Use of pool yes. No guests.Neighbor got a huge fine when her alarm went off in the middle of the night   

HOA   No way lol.

I know you love that place Beth. I took my Mother there & man that place is to big.To many people ..It just was not what we where looking for.

I would have considered painting my garage door with the back end of two cars so it would look open when it was closed and then insist they show me exactly where in the HOA rules that it was not allowed.
