So for our first post for this week we bring you @mikesthoughts with a thought provoking Vlog where he talks about finding the value of taking time in your day to take a break from our busy schedules and relax and enjoy the moment.

Up next we have @creationofcare who takes us on a beautiful hike in the snowy San Bernardino mountains along the Exploration trail in Running Springs. The photos are full of awesome views and the beauty of nature. The post also includes a video with some informative narration and lots of great info about the local flora and fauna of the area.

The third post comes from @dawgboy who shows us an ingenious way to build self watering planters for growing tomatoes. This is a fun DIY project that can really help your vegetable garden without breaking the bank!

The fourth post for this week is by @inalittlewhile. He tells us all about his lingering addiction to Facebook. He gives us his pros and cons of both Facebook and Steemit and compares the differences in the two social media platforms.

Our final featured post in the Spotlight is going to be by @csusbgeochem1. This is an amazing and highly detailed post about his project with a team from Cal-Tech for the First Annual Global Space Balloon Challenge where they launched a balloon into space with a GoPro and GPS. The post includes lots of incredible photos as well as video from the ground and even video overlooking the earth from the balloon itself!!

This is wonderful to see today. I think I got it from @mariannewest's feed - but I'm not sure with all the crazy lagging I've had the last couple of days. The linked posts make me miss SoCal even though I love SE Asia now. The more you do to stick together - the more you will spread the word!

Such a great stuff. Socal seems so cool. Upvoted and followed
