Happy birthday wishes to lifelong Running Springs resident Jay Houck who celebrated his birthday today, Veteran’s Day. Jay grew up in Running Springs and I knew him as a boy and I am proud to know him now as an adult who is the pastor of Springs of Life Church. Jay is such a very special man with a jest for life and for his profession. In addition to being a pastor he works at Top Producers Real Estate in downtown Running Springs. I have known Jay most of his life and I have to admit that I’ve always had a very “soft spot in my heart” for him as a teenager and as an adult. I am blessed to know him and each time he gives me one of his great, broad smiles I can still see the little boy he was in his grin. Happy birthday, my friend. How special you are!
Happy birthday greetings to Green Valley Lake resident, and chef extraordinaire Alexandra Lin. This woman can bake anything and she’s developing such a wonderful reputation for her culinary skills. Need a cake or other confectionary delight? Call “Alex” as we know her because she is a fabulous gourmet cook and pastry chef. She’s very creative and if you want a special cake or other “goodie” she’s your lady. She is as skillful at baking delicious delights as she is with decorating them. She’s quite amazing and as a homemade gourmet cook who specializes in special cakes, cookies and all sorts of other delicious goodies she deserves a great birthday.
