Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a rare and very complex non-inherited genetic disorder. Symptoms associated with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) are believed to be caused in part by a defect in the hypothalamus, an important supervisory center in the brain that controls metabolism of fats and carbohydrates, the development of muscle tone, the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle, body temperature, blood pressure, heartbeat, the expression of emotions, and many more functions of the body.

The game is on Saturday, September 17th at 7:30pm.

So come out, support a great group that’s hungry for the cure, and have fun watching a great International sport all at the same time!

Wanna Play? California Basketball Summer Pro League 2012 Is Getting Under Way!

Monday, August 15th, 2011

From the Web Site: is Live is live!

“We are back! The original Southern California Summer Pro Basketball League was first established in 1970 by Dick Marquis. John Younesi acquired the SPL in 1992 and developed it into the place to see good quality summer professional basketball. The SPL showcase NBA sponsored teams who featured their 1st and 2nd year players and a combination of free agent teams with a mix of rookies and various unsigned players. Over 800 current and former NBA stars have participated in the SPL, including Magic Johnson, Andrew Bynum, Jordan Farmar, Danny Manning, Carmello Anthony and Kobe Bryant. The SPL helped professional basketball players and the amateur player who was on the cusp of professional careers to launch or hone their skills and gain exposure to professional scouts and agents, while providing basketball fans, as well as sports media outlets, a closer look at players playing in professional competition.”

After some time off, the Summer Pro League is back with the re-launch of their Web Site, Summer 2011 and all of the politics that went with sports this year are behind us, and it’s time to work on making a name for yourself, or find the best player at the best price possible for 2013, and by far the best way to scout in California will be the 2012 Summer Pro League.

Congratulations and welcome back, You may enjoy reading the full article from the site.

If you like piña coladas…

It’s summer and it’s prime vacation time.  That means great weather, more time with the kids, and longer days.  It also can mean tourists everywhere you go, and higher

However, escaping to San Felipe, Mexico in Baja, California is kryptonite for the normal vacation blues.  You can go off-season to get the same great weather, It’s stunningly inexpensive, and there are significantly fewer tourists in all of Baja Mexico (much less your own little practically private resort) than there are in line for Space Mountain.

That’s not to say you HAVE to sit around on the beach all day.  There is a quiet but thriving community of like-minded, relaxed people enough to support any number of vacation-like activities.

So if you’re trying to plan a vacation for this summer but you’re looking for a real escape, escape from the tourists, the grind, and from high prices,  Tell Karen WSmad sent you!
