My friend had been wanting to take me to the Old Mexico Restaurant for weeks now, and finally a big block of time was carved to enjoy and experience it.

On Saturday and Sunday they feature an amazing buffet with what appeared to be close to 40 menu items.

Approaching the entrance we could hear live Mariachi music serenading us. When I walked in I was impressed with how fantastic Mariachi Estrallas De America played the Latin American favorites I grew up hearing.

The music serenaded us and my pork tamales, refried beans and Mexican rice was made fresh to order, all dishes made from scratch.



When they played Maleguena by Ernesto Luecona, a song that was my dad’s favorite and mine-my dad I know danced in heaven.






I will be returning back to Old Mexico Restaurant where the service was great, the staff more than friendly and the food outstanding.

What wonderful thing did you spot during your ordinary day?


I spotted these beautiful ranulculus flowers in a flower bed by the bank where I was walking a few days ago.

Did you find something that made your day special or “put you in a good mood” when you saw it?

Share your photo or send it to be at and I will share it for you.
Make sure you tell me your first and last name and what state you live, so I can give credit to you as the photographer!

In your day did you discover something extraordinary in the middle of an ordinary world?


My discovery was this rose specimen posing gracefully on a bush as I was walking by in Huntington Beach, CA.

In every day there is the unique and extraordinary. We just need to focus on seeing it.
