Monday, January 16, is Martin Luther King Day!

Great quote by Martin Luther King to share with our kids and grandkids


Just wanted to let y’all know that I am sharing holidays news in Roseville CA area centered around Martin Luther King Day! Many government and business offices will be closed on Monday to celebrate the memory and accomplishments of Martin Luther King. I did some checking and some places were better than others at sharing but I did discover that:

  • Many offices in Sacramento will be closed
  • Citrus Heights City Hall is closed
  • Lincoln CA government offices are closed
  • Here is a flyer with Roseville’s closures

If you are going to any government offices and/or out to any businesses (not stores – they are usually open) – I would give them a buzz if you’d rather not get there and find them closed. 😊

Water in Roseville

I don’t know about y’all, but I LOVE water and am  VERY SENSITIVE TO ITS TASTES. The last week or so I’ve noticed an odd taste to it but figured it had something to do with all the rain so just been sticking to water bottles. Thanks to a sweet friend, I now have the answer via ABC10 news – it IS from the rain, and all the leaves, etc. being added to the water, leading to extra chemicals being added. Bottom line – it is safe, but tastes and maybe smells differently. Funnily enough, she noticed the smell and not the taste. Whereas I usually have a very sensitive nose, but never noticed the smell of it. 😆 Go figure!  If you do have any questions or issues though, you can call the City of Roseville Environmental Utilities at  (916) 774-5750.

2. Plus – I have no specifics, but I’m hearing that, with all the rain and storms – (and just in general, sadly), there are lots of scammers and spammers offering to do work but not always following thru – you can find some great tips for us all at the California Contractors’ State License Board, including their link to check the licenses of someone you are thinking of hiring. I would also check Yelp but I always recommend that you read ALL the reviews and take some with grain of salt 😉
