Temecula Mayor Mike Naggar (center) had his recent state of the city address with a theme surrounded by Back to the Future emphasis bringing fun and focus to the event held at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula.

naggar: WE WERE NO MATCH FOR THE DEVIL says PEARLS SERIES AUTHOR NAGGAR - 05/01/13 03:56 PM
If you stop to consider at how powerful dark forces are then you start appreciate... as well as unravel the mystery of Christ deep within yourself. He came into this world to separate you and me from our sins. You get to stay while the other stuff has to go. But some of those things have such a stronghold on mankind that supernatural help is needed to overcome it ANTI---WELL BEING FORCES You see we remain in a type of bondage by being ignorant, denying or just plain accepting our circumstances when instead you can claim correctly what is yours, what (0 comments)
naggar: EXPLORE GOD FROM THE INSIDE OUT says PEARLS SERIES AUTHOR NAGGAR - 04/13/13 12:04 PM
THE PEARL OF PEARLS GOD I AM...DO YOU KNOW HIM is a book that gently beckons to everyone regardless of where they are in life or what they believe. Yes, the author chose a side, but submits to you many things for your own consideration. If you love God, then this book is a type of manna, a food for the soul. For those that are not sure, come and let us reason together THE SUBJECT IS RICH The subject matter is known to many but only as words or stories instead of life and sustenance. When reading some of the (5 comments)
naggar: NO PEARLY GATES FOR SATAN says PEARLS SERIES AUTHOR NAGGAR - 03/21/13 07:35 AM
That is the way the heavenly cookie crumbles for this once majestic creature that now is despised by all including his like kind. In the world of dark forces, fear and might rule for no love or loyalty can be found in places without God. SATAN PRINCE and PRISONER OF THIS WORLD..NO PEARLY GATES FOR YOU book reveals a very pertinent and sobering fact. The earth is his place of imprisonment GLORY DAYS ARE GONE Once allowed access to places literally without end, he now paces his cell back and forth... to and fro stirring up problems to satisfy his restless (2 comments)
naggar: IT'S LOVE ONE ANOTHER not SEX ONE ANOTHER - 03/18/13 06:48 AM
Sex is not love....Somehow over the generations of time, sex switched places with intimacy and the world has suffered for it since. Men have still yet to discover how important it is for a man to just hold a woman. Often over-looked is the feeling of being personally wanted and both parties need large doses of this SEX IS OVER-STATED AND OVER RATED... Sex plays a small part in the life of two people when it is contrasted to time. It is not the glue that holds the two together, but a small part of where the glue is applied. Human (0 comments)
naggar: FEED THE SOUL AND YOU FEED EVERYTHING says PEARLS SERIES AUTHOR NAGGAR - 03/11/13 01:37 PM
In the preamble of the book titled PEARLS FOR THE SOUL, I share about a very special diet necessary for the maximum welfare and benefit of the sojourner. I called this a diet of "Pearls" or little values of insights that flood our inner parts searching for a way to surface so that they may be turned into a "type" of food. MANNA IS STILL AVAILABLE The soul is the essence, or core, of the human being – that place where God and man interact and understand each other through insight and revelation. The soul must be acknowledged, or fed, and (2 comments)
naggar: ROASTING OF FINE MEATS GOES BACK IN TIME - 03/04/13 06:37 AM
Our ancestors at some point got tired of eating raw foods and grains and decided to spice it up a little with roasted meats. It opened up a whole new pleasure expereince than just eating. It allowed one to make good use of the time surrounding the eating too.Add spices, wood scents, the fat melting on the meat for additional flavor and you could count on uninvited guests both human and non to want to join you for supper.... THE PLEASURES OF LIFE BELOW: That's hickory smoke coming out of my seasoned BBQ pit. The smell permeates the neighborhood and (0 comments)
naggar: CRISPIEST FRENCH FRIES YOU EVER HAD - 02/25/13 05:14 PM
I have loved french fries since I was a kid. They remain beloved in the world of the potato and who hasn't had them or liked them? I totally enjoy mine with lots of ketchup and or Malt vinegar. Of course you can dip fries into any sauce. Its all personal too. I like large fries or steak fries as they are called. I also enjoy Crinkle cut and Waffle fries too CRISPY CRITTERS One thing I require from a french fry is that they be crispy and crunchy with a soft center. Now this is not easy to come by (4 comments)
naggar: WHY DOES PEARLS FOR THE SOUL book KEEP SELLING? - 02/21/13 08:14 AM
It's like anything else that has a value to it. It's People wanting it. However, people want this book for different reasons. It is a giant GET WELL book not unlike those Hallmark cards you give out or receive. With over 800 positive and uplifting sayings, this book keeps giving long after a card does.

naggar: MONTH TO MONTH DOES NOT COMPEL YOU TO STAY - 01/18/13 09:05 AM
Landlords have agreements that protect them and insure reasonable rights to the tenant too. Month to month agreements are designed so that all the parties involved can cancel an agreement by giving thirty notice. By contrast, a lease for one year or more offers other dynamics. At all times, what is in writing prevails THE CONTRACT GOVERNS I don't look for lawsuits and in fact I operate so that I don't attract them either. My contracts have the language that wards off any potential mischief but problems will surface and my business plan calls for solution and remedy rather than confrontation followed (8 comments)
naggar: PEDALING THE REAL ESTATE CYCLE - 01/17/13 06:48 AM
Whoever is driving the current Real Estate bike is pedaling fast. Things are picking up and speed is increasing. Inventory is being swallowed up and multiple bids are quite common. But not those bids that drove Real Estate pricing through the roof and caused a crashing. NO. Appraisers and banks will only go so far on the value. But buyers have to move with a purpose if they want to MOVE into a new home 2013 MARKS THE BEGINNING It is fitting that we can now reference and time this with the NEW YEAR. 2013 promises to be a busy Real (4 comments)
naggar: ACTIVERAIN TOOL BEING OPTIMIZED IN CALIFORNIA - 01/15/13 02:00 PM
You see it is a post about the rankings of the ACTIVERAIN players for California. these are some very impressive bloggers, commenters and posters who are to be respected and enjoyed. I entered into the top 20 ranks with enormous effort, grace and luck but the journey upward and to the higher plains will be no cake walk..WHY? These are where the action bloggers, the mover and shakers hang out and they not only like what they do, but they do it well and consistently. It reminds me of the Olympics in a way where the best from all over come (4 comments)
naggar: CALIFORNIA IS NOT BUSINESS FRIENDLY - 01/14/13 05:58 AM
Well if things were not challenging enough in California which continues to support and create anti-business environments, The California Association of Realtors had to stir things up. Now, everyone who is licensed under a Broker has to become a CAR dues paying member. FINALLY TECHNOLOGY HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE This has been bothering them for years is the way I heard it told and now there is software technology that can track who is licensed under who anywhere whether they are CAR members or not. Now, those licensees that don't want to join don't have to, but the broker cannot have them under his (7 comments)
naggar: ATTORNEY INVOLVEMENT GETS THINGS DONE - 01/13/13 07:50 AM
Today more than ever, legal representation in business is a must even in the mundane and normal things we may encounter. First of all, the legal system is very much apart of our everyday lives and is in most everything we do. Haven't you seen the small print on just about everything everywhere? That is what comes home to roost in a crunch CONTRACT REVIEW Attorneys are not that expensive and should be used liberally when conducting any important business. WHY? Because they are taking seriously by everyone and bring disclosure and clarity to the transaction. Often times people tend to (2 comments)
naggar: LAND OF OPPORTUNITY IS NO MERE NICK NAME - 01/09/13 07:47 AM
Somehow over the years and as the generations get assimilated, we tend forget the magic that many felt when they first arrived here in America. Long before they got here, foreigners and their dreams were up and running showing them the potential and unlimited opportunities if they could only get over to America WOW...WOW...WOW People came here with the understanding that whatever they did in their country or origin could be done here but with more success, a higher return on your efforts plus you could own land and more importantly, there is no ceiling to success.

naggar: WHY DOES SOMEONE UNSUBSCRIBE HELP ME UNDERSTAND - 01/05/13 06:44 AM
I always have a pleasant thought or feeling when someone subscribes to my post. It is just the simple fact that they find something of interest and I was able to help with that interest. The giver and the receiver meet up and that is a good thing. However, when someone pulls out which is a deliberate act, I am wondering why they do so? HERE'S WHAT I DO I log-in and go about my ActiveRain business and I at some point just happen to notice the numbers change. Now this is an interesting thing because I notice when they go up (25 comments)
naggar: CODES AND WHAT THEY DO - 01/04/13 02:50 PM
As agents and Realtors, we are all aware of the Code of Ethics and it is a nice little set of awareness principals to do business by and live a good life while doing it. The banks should have a similar code of ethics, but that is another post. On codes, I like the one that the wild west was run on. THE CODE YOU LIVE BY The unwritten codes are the best ones. Those are the ones that everyone has come to discover and appreciate as well as practice for themselves and they live them everyday. Others feel the same (4 comments)
