    We have visited the mansion on multiple occasions. If you can, take a tour. Grounds are lovely and the museum has very interesting exhibits.

    Ater consuming a good breakfast at Farmer Boys, continued exploring San Jacinto, California. Situated at Ramon Boulevard, one will find Druding Park. This small 1.38-acre triangle shaped park is dedicated “In tribute to all who served and gave their lives in defense of our precious freedom." Druding Veteran’s Monument Park was dedicated on 09 June 2001.This Park honors all branches of the American Armed Forces. There is a small rose garden with plaques, each dedicated to a specific war. A full-size US Army tank takes center stage. Other individual monuments include: an 18-foot-high replica of a Fenwick Lighthouse, dedicated in honor of the US Coast Guard. A B-17 (Flying Fortress) Propeller pays tribute to US Air Force personnel who have proudly served our country. One of the anchors from the USS Cleveland / LPD-7 (Viet Nam & Iraq) and a Bell from the USS Cape Johnson / AP-172 (World War II) honors all US Naval personnel who have supported America's security at sea. In front of the Army tank is a semicircle holding three flag poles with the United States flag, A California State flag, and a San Jacinto City flag. A series of Bronz memorial plaques (Operation Desert Shield/Storm, Korean War, Vietnam War, WWII (Pearl Harbor), and POW) are also on display. An incredibly special tribute is dedicated to San Jacinto native son, U.S. Army Specialist 4th Class Joseph Patrick, "Joey", Pink was erected in 2006. Joey was born at the Soboba Indian Hospital in San Jacinto on November 11, 1947. A decorated soldier in the U.S. Army, he died on October 23, 1967, while engaged in combat action at Vic Van Dong, Quang Tin, Vietnam while serving his country in Vietnam. A plaque next to it tells the story of Pink, who was born on the Pala Indian Reservation in San Diego County and grew up on the Soboba Indian Reservation near San Jacinto. He attended San Jacinto High School, where he was “an extraordinary football player with professional aspirations,”. A remarkable tribute to a fallen Serviceman. Having visited war memorials and veteran parks across the United States, this memorial pays tribute to all servicemembers and is a remarkable accomplishment. Spent an hour at this memorial paying tribute to those fallen heroes and reflecting on my past military service in different conflicts during my years as a GI.

    Looking for a new location to explore, traveled over to the town of San Jacinto, California. San Jacinto is a small community with different attractions to visit. Driving around San Jacinto, located a marker commemorating the Transpolar Record Flight Site. Marker is west of the intersection of Cottonwood and Sanderson Street. This 1987 marker commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Soviet Transpolar Long-Distance Flight from Moscow to the United States. Unfortunately, this plaque is scared with a plethora of bullet holes. This plaque is located near the actual landing site of the Soviet AN-25 Aircraft. Due to the damage of the original commemorative marker, The California Historical Resources Commission upgraded this site to a Historical Landmark (17 September 1991) and placed a new marker (# 989) in Hoffman Park located at 556 South Jacinto Avenue, San Jacinto, California. This new plaque reads, “Three miles west of this site, on July 14, 1937, three Soviet aviators completed a transpolar flight from Moscow in 62 hours, 17 minutes, establishing a new world's nonstop distance record of 6,305 miles. The huge single-engine aircraft, an ANT-25 military reconnaissance monoplane, was shipped back to the Soviet Union and placed in a museum. Aircraft Commander Mikhail Gromov, Co-Pilot Andrei Yumashev and Navigator Sergei Danilin became Generals in World War II.” Interesting, however there is extraordinarily little information available concerning the actual flight. Research reveals that on 14 July 1937, a Soviet Air Force Experimental long-range bomber aircraft (Tupolev ANT-25RD / Registration Number: 025) made an emergency landing in a farmer’s pasture due to heavy fog that blanked the entire Southern California area. This propaganda flight initiated at Shchelkovo Airfield, Moscow on 12 July 1937 and ended in San Jacinto. The intended landing site was Limburg Field in San Diego. After spending three days at March Field, resting and recuperation, the crew received a ticker-tape parade in Los Angeles. Prior to returning to Soviet Union all three flyers met with President Roosevelt at the White House. Not to be outdone, The Soviet Government declared this flight crew Heros of the Soviet Union and awarded them the “Hero of the Soviet Union Medal” upon their return to Moscow. The aircraft was dismantled and ship back to the Soviet Union and placed on display in museum. This aircraft was destroyed in a fire several years later. With the help of additional research, my knowledge of this feat has been expanded. If you are in the San Jacinto area, suggest stopping by and look at this commemorative plaque.

    About an hour's drive from Palm Desert, Soboba is worth the drive. The green fee we paid, in high season, was $54, and the course is a little rough around the edges, but a very good layout - challenging but it won't beat you up. The greens were excellent, and held shots well. We didn't stay after, but popped next door to the huge new casino. Pace of play was concerning, but we played through a group eventually and finished quickly. Did need a course marshall to make this happen earlier.

    I've been coming to this casino over 14 years and I know that you win some you lose some but when there's a big jackpot going for cars I never see any Afro-American people winning any car and I know they call me for a couple of drawings here and there the little ones but I know a lot of Afro-American people put a lot of money into casinos because I'm one other than that the food is good the bartenders are excellent but please consider to change the drawing and the people that's doing the drawing
