Friday Flower Fiesta (7-4-14)—From the San Diego County Fair

Friday Flower Fiesta

I spent yesterday at the San Diego County Fair, North America’s seventh largest fair by 2013 attendance.

Many decades ago I used to go to the Texas State Fair, the Houston Lifestock Show & Rodeo, and the San Antonio Lifestock Show & Exhibition to ride the rides.

Now I just go to see the beautiful gardens, bonsai, and flowers.

The theme for this year’s fair is “The Fab Fair,” celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of The Beatles arrival in America in 1964. Here are some flowers from the 2014 San Diego County Fair:

      Fine Art America is awesome! As soon as Julian gets back from Texas on July 10, he and I will be marketing it heavily. I have a built-in market from my home inspection business which I started in October 2001. I know about 5,000 home owners, 30,000 Realtors, and 10,000 home inspectors, so that gives me 45,000 people to market to immediately. I also have access to names of buyers and addresses of the homes they have bought via public records that Realtors have access to, and since Jim is a Realtor, there’s another 40,000 home owners annually that I have access to, as well as the listing and buying Realtors (another 80,000 people!), so I’ll never be without markets. It’s just a question of marketing to them.

    Beautiful! Our fair lasted 4 days, with one day being a half day (and on the weekend too). I was unable to go this year due to being quarantined from the chemo….

    Enjoy the day and be well and safe! Hugs to you and Jim! ^..^
