Take a look at what customers are saying about Soul Sistas Cafe!


Soul Food with a dash of class! 661.723.1090



Have you been to Soul Sistas Cafe? I have and I can tell you that it is GOOD!  I went to Soul Sistas for the first time a couple weeks ago with my good friendsRoy Ellison and Ali Rae Pursely. Since eating there we can’t stop talking about how great the food is! Ali got an omelette and pancake, Roy got a Tuna melt I and enjoyed the smothered chicken. Our server was very nice and super casual about everything which made us feel really at home. The food was soul-full and soon our stomach were full-full.


So the next time you’re looking for a great place to eat (and at a good price too!) Head over to Soul Sistas Cafe just east of the tracks on Sierra Highway and Ave J in Lancaster, CA.

Hyundai Rally Automotive History


Rally Automotive History – Phone Number: 661-878-9466

The Rally history starts all the way back to 1927! That was the year that the first Chevrolet Dealership in the Antelope Valley was established in a gasoline station on Sierra Highway in Lancaster. Over the years the Dealership saw steady growth and moved into a moderate sized Dealership on Sierra Highway in the 1930’s. In 1965 it moved to a large specially planned and built Dealership facility located on Avenue K at 10th Street West.


In 1969 the Chevrolet Dealership name changed to Rally and the direction of the Company refocused. The phrase, “Where Integrity Has Meaning” was created as the motto for the store.  The goal of high standards and strong moral character would benefit both customers and employees alike. 

The Company’s philosophy paid off and it continued to grow and attract top quality, long term staff members. The Company earned the reputation of the premier automobile Dealership by providing outstanding service to the residents of Antelope Valley and surrounding areas.


In 1991, Rally purchased Blumel-Martin Pontiac-Cadillac-GMC-Hyundai, Inc., changed the name to Rally Pontiac-Cadillac-GMC-Hyundai.   In June 1991, both dealerships moved to the brand new facilities located in the Antelope Valley Auto Center in Palmdale.


In 2006 Rally added additional facilities for the Hyundai franchise and a quick lube operation on a recently acquired adjacent parcel of land.


Enjoying over 80 years of history, Rally proudly serves its customers in the Antelope Valley with four modern facilities conveniently located adjacent to the 14 freeway in Palmdale.

This time of year is a great time to count our blessings and consider how to freeze our finest moments in time. The Over50 crowd may be most interested in tackling the project since they are closer to the eventual passing of the torch, but interviewing parents and grandparents and documenting family history can also be a great project for children and young adults.

There are lots of methods from which to choose, and more easy-to-afford options are becoming available everyday. My friend, Susan Kitchens, has an entire web site dedicated to the process and technology of capturing your family’s oral history.  – Be sure to check out her recent article in the Saturday Evening Post on “Interviewing Family During the Holidays.”

You can also write a memoir to leave behind for your family, or my personal preference, to force them to read every year just to reconfirm your greatness. Or create a memory book for a family or a particular town by collecting stories, photos and memorabilia from the elders in your group. offers examples and suggestions on how best to compile the data.

Most families I knew growing up had scrapbooks of the children, and photo albums of the family. And who can forget the infamous home movies foisted upon unsuspecting guests and family members during annual get-togethers? Over the years, our photo albums have been replaced with digital photos and home-made videos. More recently, it’s facebook pages with photo albums attached, a family web site or photo-sharing pages and ubiquitous YouTube videos.

Personally, I have written a holiday letter each year for over a decade. In addition to affording me an easy way to keep all my friends and family updated, I’ve found the letters to be great memory joggers, reminding me which year I actually took that trip or made that life change. And, of course, all can be saved compactly on a computer hard drive, flash drive or external hard drive or CD.

If you have old videotapes or reel-to-reel tapes, you should consider having them transferred to DVD. You want to be able to relish your memories long after the technology has evolved yet again. It’s surprising how inexpensive the transfers have become.

And depending upon how sophisticated you want to get with your ancestral research and how far back you want to go, there are plenty of web sites to help you connect with your early roots and find out about your father’s father’s mother’s mother. Here are just a few—,,

Yes, the holidays are a great time to look back with appreciation and look forward with hope. Capturing our special individual or family moments keep our best memories intact for many generations. Reviewing photos and family history together this time of year can even foster a new family tradition.

What does your family do to sustain its treasured memories and how does your family use these valuable historical resources?
