Friends at ilivetodayav

Friends at ilivetodayav.


To think this all  started for me back on May 1st 2010 with about 10 people and Jim Greenleaf talkin about cloud computing at Butlers Coffee.   There are close to 500 members and over 100 local businesses that belong to ilivetoday. there is a weekly U stream show, lots of videos and pictures showing and telling about Antelope Valley.

We watched as The Blvd. progressed day by day. We had coffee with Ron Smith and listened to his passion for Lancaster. We saw one of the biggest days on The Blvd. on Halloween.

We lined the Blvd for the Christmas parade. What a great time with the Magical Christmas on the Blvd. If you missed any of these things in person they were all here on

I made some new friendships and rekindle some old ones. It is so nice to see the community we are all apart of here on ilivetoday. Chris C. at Graphic Experience we go back a few years. It was nice getting back in contact this past year. And I love when you leave me comments on my videos and pictures.

getting to know Chris Spicher from A.V. Florist, this guy is always  upbeat and I never hear anything negative from him he always greets you with a sincere hello and how are you doing? Stokley from Kings Photo another all round nice guy. Benjamin Andrews, if you dont know this guy, he is one of the hardest working young guys I know..And be watching in the future he will be winning awards for directing or something to do with films. Last but not least Jim Greenleaf aka. Santa or is it Santa aka. Jim Greenleaf. This guy is always willing to share whether its computer stuff, acting stuff, business talk or just hey hows it going. these are just a few of the fantastic people that i have had the honor to call my friends and be apart of here at  ilivetoday.

Thank you to all of them. May

Jack Seefus Celebrates 75 Birthday

Jack Seefus Celebrates 75 Birthday

Welcome to Antelope Valley Bank,
a Division of California Bank & Trust

When the bank opened in February 1981 in Lancaster, California, its primary purpose was to establish a locally based financial institution that would understand and serve the community’s needs. This vision was set by Jack Seefus, the bank’s original president and CEO, and its leader to this day. In its efforts to best serve the community, the bank pioneered some of banking’s modern concepts, such as weekend business hours, the Valley’s first ATM to accommodate commuters who work in the Los Angeles area, and branch offices in supermarkets – long before major banks decided to follow suit. All Branches in the Antelope Valley Region are open from Monday through Saturday.

Jack Seefus, President

Customers enjoy sit-down teller stations, where they can relax in comfortable chairs while conducting banking transactions.Antelope Valley Bank operates branches in the communities of Lancaster, Acton, Frazier Park, Palmdale, Quartz Hill, Rosamond and Wrightwood.

Brittany Troffer a gem in the AV

An ilivetodayav exclusive…

I had the opportunity to be the first to interview Brittany on camera just after she was crowned Miss Palmdale for 2010. Not only is she quick witted and beautiful, but, she has a clear understanding that she will effect girls growing-up in the Antelope Valley.

Brittany recently penned this on her FaceBook page…

I’ve gained a new understanding of life’s unpredictability, its is a twisting country road weaving through the mountains of time with turns so sharp and sudden that it feels as though your tires are clinging to the pavement for life.

Beyond each turn  faces a new challenge or boundary & they are never few are far between.We begin our life breaking at each curve and hesitating before preceding through, not knowing quite whats on the other side. As life progresses we learn to ease of the breaks and become smoother at navigating and, more confident in our abilities. I’m proud to say day by day I’m realizing my pressure on the breaks a little quicker than usual lately….

On her profile page on ilivetodayav she was asked…

The Antelope Valley is not only the back drop to some of my favorite memories but, also is a gem in the desert. Our population grows by the day but, somehow we still keep a hometown feel with local owned business’s and festivals as well as our amazing AV fair. We are a loving and diverse community I couldn’t be prouder to call home.

Brittany truly is the Gem in the Antelope Valley.
