This week was one of the most exciting weeks as Miss California 2011! Not only because I had the opportunity to represent Miss America's official swimsuit sponsor in New York but I also had the privilege of meeting every contestant vying for the title of Miss California 2012!

Hello again everybody! This past Wednesday marked 100 days until the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympic Games. It's hard to believe that we are already so close. Our sense of urgency continues to grow as the summer quickly approaches.

Last weekend we hosted the Four Nations Tournament right here in Thousand Oaks, California. With Italy, Germany, and Montenegro, we finally had a chance to play some real games and gain the valuable experience that competition brings us.

This weekend pistachios saved me, once again! I had the pleasure of staying at the J.W. Marriot at L.A. Live for the GM’s conference and Asia Pacific meeting.

This month we are working on making our operation more efficient, both economically and environmentally. We are taking/analyzing water samples and soil samples in March and April to better understand the soil structure and nutrient needs of the pistachio trees.

Hello again everyone! We are officially in the doldrums: the meaty part of our 7 month-long training year leading up to the Olympic Games. We are less than 150 days from the opening ceremonies, and the sense of urgency and anticipation is starting to grow.

I am very excited about the 2012 pistachio year on our farm. We are using a new automation system (the first and currently only of its kind in the US) that will allow us to turn our valves, pumps, and filters on and off automatically; it will also enable us to write schedules that should help our efficiency and our productivity. I have taken a few pictures that show a pole that transmits a signal above our canopy and another picture of the valve box.
