Have you often wondered, "Am I the only single person in the Santa Clarita Valley? Am I the only one in this city who has not yet found their soul mate?" I ask myself these questions all the time.

With the new year come new resolutions, and while all of these pledges are made with the honest intention of being seen through, most will be broken before the first week has drawn itself out. One of the most common resolutions is to be smarter with finances, but the average American will fail in accomplishing this for a number of reasons (curse you New Year's day sales!). Luckily, Inside SCV stumbled along a business that will help you not only stick to these promises, but change the way you handle your finances long after 2006.
During the holidays, there are usually two facts of life that are at odds with each other. Fact 1: The kids are out of school for winter break. Fact 2: Because of holiday shopping, money's tight.
Guests at All Corked Up's fancy-schmancy wine tasting enjoyed more than a good bottle of Bollinger (or Gaja, Pio Cesare or Il Poggione). Besides schmoozing with a former Dodger ballplayer, Hall of Famer Eddie Murray, locals checked out the new goodies from Mercedes Benz of Valencia.

A night of dinner, dancing and bottles of bubbly is what's on tap in Santa Clarita this New Year's Eve. Celebrations range from Valencia to Agua Dulce, and cork-popping prices vary according to how fine the food and how long the evening. Line up a sitter, because it's pretty much an adults-only night!
Not so long ago, Christmas cards didn't come in economy-size boxes and holiday sweaters were knitted, not purchased from the mall. Oh, how times have changed. We know that you're too busy to create handmade gifts for everyone on your list, but there are still simple ways to incorporate old-fashioned values into the season.
Check out Kevin Oliff's rockstar-inspired fashion statement. Always the multi-tasker, it seems that Kevin (or K-O, as we now like to call him) is prepped for both a day on the course and a quick jog.

What if you couldn't afford to buy gifts for your kids this holiday? How would they feel? How would you feel? Yes, the holidays are about more than the gifts under the tree, but that's easy to say when you're financially secure enough to have at least a few presents planned for your kids.

Holiday-time is about happy family gatherings. But what about families that have lost children? How do they find a reason to celebrate the season? The table is festively set. Candles softly glow. Brightly wrapped gifts lay waiting to be opened. Sumptuous aromas beckon from the kitchen. The family is gathered. Everyone is there - all except for those precious children that are missing. Car crashes, illness, accidents, murder, suicide, whatever the reason that took them away, they are forever gone.
