My husband has lived here for eight years. We wed in August and moved in the same area as his parents reside in Menlo Park, and I can say this area is so far the most peaceful and coziest to live in. We plan living in the area for the next couple of years until we are ready to buy our first home which could possibly be in the exact area where we are now.

Local Businesses in my area are very expensive but I think the reason to that is because my are is made up of hispanics(mainly) so all the products we consume are brought from Mexico. Still they are super expensive. The service is really bad, most of local business owners do not know how to work with people.
The weather over all here in my town is very nice. But now, we are struggling with a drought. At home we have reduced the waste of water, the showers are shorter, we re-use water. For example, water used to wash dishes is use to water the plans. That takes some of my time as I have to wash the dishes carefully to not waste water and then water plans.
