Oxnard Krispy Kreme - Closed

Krispy Kreme at Oxnard is now Closed. There is no Krispy Kreme in Ventura County anymore.  The nearest location is in Van Nuys.

I remember when they first opened the store around year 2000. After taking a bite of that hot glazed donut, there was no going back. They also had good coffee. They've been roasting coffee since 1937. I used to grind & brew Krispy Kreme coffee every morning before I go to work. I still have two Krispy Kreme coffee mugs.

I have 19 pictures to share with you. Some of the photographs below were taken in March 2003 & May 2006.  "After"  shots were taken August 9 2006.

Morgan Stanley Building - Oxnard

Category:

This is the tallest building in Ventura County that I know of.  It's Morgan Stanley Tower at Oxnard.  I'm trying to find the history about this building... but it's very difficult to find anything. 

More pictures from inside the building & looking down from top floor are located here.

First Sign of Christmas

We just had the hottest (longest) heatwave in Ventura County. I was shopping at a warehouse store. There, I saw the first sign of Christmas. These three showmen sing and dance. They are very cute.

I wasn't even sure if I was allowed take pictures here, but I snapped two anyway.

It will be less than 4 more months, you will hear Christmas music everywhere.

Jury duty at Simi Valley Courthouse.

Category:

I had a civic duty to do... a jury duty.


My juror badge, they made me to return it Frown

I thought I was going to Ventura Courthouse, but I was called to report to Simi Valley (East County Courthouse).  Ventura Courthouse has wireless Internet connection for notebook computer users.  East County Courthouse (Simi Valley Civic Center) does NOT have wireless Internet connection.  I was a little disappointed, but it's OK.

I gave respectable time when I left home, but I ended up arriving at Simi Valley Civic Center 10 minutes late

23 Freeway was under construction to expend the lanes. I see more progress every time I drive by.  On top of it, there was an auto accident to slow us down even more.

On my lunch time, I went to Borders in Simi Valley so I would get online and keep in touch with my work.

Parking Lot Sealing - Camarillo Town Center

West side parking lot of Camarillo Town Center was re-sealed today.
The City of Camarillo is maintaining many parking lots and streets. It seemed obvious to me that they are trying to finish everything before Camarillo Fiesta.

Service was provide by GPM (General Pavement Management) from Santa Paula.
They are high class, top notch pavement company in tricounty area.
I think they did a good job. They were nice people as well.

Thousand Oaks - Westlake Village Business Expo 06

Thousand Oaks - Westlake Village Regional Chamber of Commerce holds Business Expo and Trade Show three times a year. Today's theme was Surf your way to Better Business.

Thousand Oaks - Westlake Business Expo takes place at Hyatt Westlake Plaza Hotel in the Garden area. I have done a few wedding photography gigs in this very spot. The expo is absolutely free for public to attend.

There always have food, drink, gifts, and prizes. Almost all 70 vendor's tables were taken. (I think it was sold out).

I ate 2 hot-dogs, 1 tamale, 2 tacos, 2 wines, 1 coke, and number of other small treats. Yikes...

Next expo will be held on September. Come on over to have fun and get to know the businesses in your area. If you are a business owner you can have your own table for just $225.00

This Burger King at Oxnard shares the parking lot with Costco.
They are temporarily closed due to fire.
I remember coming here 6 years ago (2000) to trade Pekemon Toys with youngsters.
This Burger King was packed with pokemon collectors at that time.

Post Plaza - Pickwick Across Post Office

Camarillo Water Tower

This water tower is visible from most parts of Camarillo. 
Look close at the top of the tower, you can see a lot of equipment up there.
At night, it blinks red light to warn airplanes because this tower is located right on the airplane route.  The funny thing is that this tower is painted in sky-blue paint.  This reminds me of typical cartoon clips.  Birds and airplanes can fly into this tower because it's camouflaged.

During the Christmas season, they put on the lights on the top of the tower Click Here for pictures of the tower with Christmas lights.
