A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!

Gas with a name Day 74

Gas must be on my mind! Gas stations that is! Just yesterday I wrote a post on Wood Alley entitled Toilet seat covers Tips or Tricks . Then there is a blog I follow faithfully because I really enjoy it, and that is King Al's Thoughts of the Day which by the way can be found here. Every once in awhile he twitters the gas prices of where he is from which as the crow flys is two mountain passes from me, one is Fredonyer and the other is Donner Pass. I twittered back the other day our gas was I believe $3.45 that day. So for my picture(s) of the day will be my local, in town and ONLY in town gas sation.
Located on the corner of Ash and Third street in Westwood Ca, 96137
I used to call this gas station the gas station with no name. The reason being is I really did not know the name. People will stop by and say I am going to the Beacon Gas station. My husband call's it Tom's Sierra,

When I write a check there I am instructed to write it out to S.S.S. for Sierra Super Stop.Yet I have had mild arguments from those that claim it to be Sierra Super Sport. The name Sierra Super Store has been mentioned. However right on their sign it says Sierra Super Stop. So why the discrepancies from all , all this time? Hell, I have no clue except the fact they just recently lit the sign up. Or perhaps when gas prices were so high , who wants to gander further up a sign than what has already got their blood boiling!
But this is a great group of people through out these years who have treated their customers well, and they have a very fair price for gasoline in this section of the county. Before my husband retired he worked over in Chester Ca. a 13 mile drive from here going towards the coast and many a time if not most, the gas prices were cheaper right here in Westwood, and we are a MUCH MUCH smaller town.
So I can say we are also below the $3 mark for regular in this neck of the woods now. And to this day with out a doubt or an argument they are the greatest gas station located (inside) the town of Westwood! LOL!!!
We have one on our highway on the outskirts and I still have over 290 posts to go! LOL!!!

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
