Experts say that good friendships literally make you healthier by increasing your life span, boosting your immune system, and making you feel generally happier. These days we are often too busy to spend time cultivating our friendships; a quick note or “like” on Facebook has become the norm. Research shows that on average men have more leisure time than women; often this time is spent in camaraderie with their friends. While men are on the whole more spontaneous, women tend to plan time with their friends to fit into their hectic schedules. Many times those planned ladies nights out involve dinner and drinks and the hopes of good conversation; or shouted attempts at conversation to hear each other over the crowd. If you are looking for a truly memorable ladies night out – look no further than Reyes Winery and Vineyard, which is located near Santa Clarita at: 10262 Sierra Highway Agua Dulce, CA 91390. The winery was grown from the passion Robert Reyes had for wine and winemaking; turning his personal hobby into the award winning vineyard it is today. Currently the winery holds a special Ladies Night Out on the 4th Friday of every month. I had the pleasure of attending a couple of weeks ago and I will definitely be going again. The setting is country chic with long tables set up on the North Terrace under the vine covered patio. The view of the vineyards and rolling hills will transport you out of the Santa Clarita Valley and into the romantic Sierra Pelona Valley. The relaxed atmosphere is perfect for catching up with old friends or meeting wonderful new friends like I did. You and your friends will be pampered with two glasses of Reyes Vineyards award winning wine of your choice, and hors d’oeuvres to a light dinner and incredible desserts. Chef Beth Heiserman has an incredible talent for infusing the wines from the vineyard into each lush dish that is served. Ladies Night Out at Reyes Winery is reasonably priced at only $35 per person; the view alone is worth more. The next Ladies Night Out will be hosted on Friday, September 27th, go to to make your reservation and learn more about other upcoming events at the winery. Reyes Winery is open for tastings Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-5pm.


Last night I went to a Living Trust and Will workshop. Now, I’m young; I didn’t think planning for a Will would be anywhere in my immediate future. However, I learned it’s just as important to have a plan in place now while I have surviving family members relying on me, as it is later when I’m older. What will happen if there’s a freak accident and my wife and future children no longer have my income to support them? Worse yet, what would happen if they had to lose our home? It’s never too early or too late to start thinking about how to keep your family strong when you’re no longer around to do so. It’s a morbid subject, but wouldn’t you rather have peace of mind your family is protected? I recommend calling the Law Office of Benjamin W. Scott to talk about what options are available and what plan would best fit your family. Also ask when he’ll hold his next workshop. The workshops are free and you will hear about the myths and mistakes people make. Ben is a great, upfront guy that won’t scam you to earn a few extra bucks. If a Living Trust isn’t best for you, he’ll let you know. Call 661-388-5529 or visit


I’d like to eliminate the push for bathing suit-ability next summer so I have resolved to “keep it tight” all year long, not just for the summer season. I am excited to have the opportunity to learn more about Total Woman Gym & Spa, right here in Santa Clarita, and all that they have to offer. The facility is beautiful. Their gym includes strength equipment and training, Pilates equipment and training, group fitness classes, as well as, specialty personal training sessions. But wait, there’s more… their facility includes a full spa and boutique. Now that’s what I’m talking about! All kinds of specialty, targeted facials are available, as well as massage, waxing, tinting and a couple of other services that are top secret!

You can visit their website for more information and check them out on @Signal Sports Hot 10 show on Studio Santa Clarita at!


I have terrible luck with my computers breaking, and of course it is always just outside of the warranty. One day my desktop computer decided to turn on, however, no video was being output. The computer was rendered useless. I replaced the video card but that didn’t solve my problem. I tried all of my limited troubleshooting abilities (blowing dust around and looking perplexed). I finally gave up and took it in to where I bought it for evaluation. After 15 minutes of troubleshooting, they determined I would have to send it out for service which would be a minimum of $180. This also meant I might as well buy a new one. At this point I was going to give up and throw it away, but luckily I opted for a second opinion and brought it to Michael at LaptopEMT. After literally 5 minutes, he determined the problem (the memory wasn’t seated properly) and fixed it. BOOM! I highly recommend LaptopEMT for all of your computer fixing needs.
