Food review: Luna Grill at the Promenade Temecula Mall

Temecula, CA - Luna grill just recently opened at the local mall a few weeks ago. It is located in between the movie theater and the Apple Store in the outdoor shopping area. The grand opening ribbon cutting is this Friday Sept 23 2016 and this event supports the Temecula Boys and Girls Club according to Luna Grill's recent Instagram post.

I had been looking forward to Luna Grill opening for months, ever since I looked at the website and noticed they had many choices for Vegetarian and Vegan food. As you enter, you notice the place is stunning; with modern decor out of a HGTV set. A beautiful large table is in the front, the kind you can sit with a large group - or meet new friends by sitting at the table with them.

We hope it works: Century Martial Arts - Versys VS.1 Punching Bag

We bought this punching bag from a guy at a roadside market outside of Ludlow, California. Who knows where it came from, the guy was a bit sketchy.

We have been looking for gear to help in the effort of training to fight a group of vagrants that are attacking us when we leave our compound in the Mojave desert. They have even poisoned our crop of tomatoes, peppers and figs. I cant stand for that.

It is just me, my wife and my 16 year old daughter and They wont win! At least that is what I tell myself every day.

Actually, I just hope this training bag helps us to secure victory...

Temecula Valley: Domestic incident shuts down French Valley neighborhood

**UPDATE#6** as of 715am this morning, the suspect is in custody and Sheriffs Department officials are going through the home. No further info is available at this time. file photo

**UPDATE #5** at 119am I spoke to a deputy from the RivCo Sheriffs Department. He informed me that the Murrieta-Hemet SWAT team has been deployed to the location and that at this time they have no further information except that they hope to resolve this peacefully.

**UPDATE #4** 1215am 9-1-2016 - I just spoke to the sheriffs department representative, he confirmed no shots were fired. He could not confirm yes or no if a sound diversion device was used. He was a very nice Deputy who clearly has been working hard for hours to answer questions on scene. My advice to local residents is to stay at home, do not visit the scene and know the RicCo Sheriffs Department is working hard to resolve this.

**UPDATE #3** As of 1046pm, the Riverside Sheriffs Department has provided me the following information - 
"No update as soon as there is I will let you know Sir. We cannot control what information people put on social media. We have provided a statement and nothing has changed." 
They have told me that I will be updated as soon as further info is released - you all will be the first to know.
That said, whatever random info you might here on the web or via friends, may very well be not true.

**UPDATE #2** As of 850pm, I have heard directly from Riverside Sheriff Department and there has been no further changes to the situation. At this time there is an unidentified male subject in the home, alone. Sheriffs representatives have made no mention of shots fired. Folks from outside the local area are asked to stay away from the area for your safety and the effectiveness of the Riverside Sheriffs Department in resolving this matter.

**UPDATE** As of 6:15 sheriffs department has let us know that there are no changes at the scene.

8 Bit Brewing is a Good Bet

Murrieta - The best part about summer break is getting to sleep in and drink beer for breakfast.  This is exactly what I did today.  With no plans or appointments, I slept late and made lunch plans with my husband at 8 Bit Brewing in Murrieta, Ca. 

Though my husband and many friends had been here before, this was my first time to the newish brewery located in the industrial district of southwest Murrieta.  I was very impressed with the vibe and d├ęcor, modern gray tones mixed with warm wood accents.  The unique distressed metal slab bar top was a favorite of mine.  As were the Pacman inspired beer labels and brewery logo.
