    Employment: Most of the people here are hard workers because living expenses in San Jose are VERY high. A lot of people here work up to two jobs to support their families. Most people work in construction, gardening and restaurants.

    Local Businesses: This area is very occupies with a lot of cars at all times of the day. The fact that there is a mall by here makes it a very busy area. The other grocery stores are very scattered and far. The stores close by would be Food Max, Cvs, Walgreen's, and Cash & Carry. We have to make a longer drive if these stores do not have what we want but over all all these stores carry what we need.

    Crime & Safety: The crimes that had been occurred around my area have not been that of a problem because the police have always have been alert of them. I personally feel safety around my area because crimes do not accrued often.

    Community: The people who live in my community are very friendly people sometimes we get together at parties or when we have something religious like celebrating the virgin marry. The people who have live around my community had been living in this area fro many years so is not common for people to move out.

    Weather: I personally think the weather around my area is great because is commonly sunny and it dose not rain often but when it dose it gets very cold, and sometime we have the problems of flooding or thunderstorms that cause damages. For example no electricity around the area and sometimes we have trees falling in top of houses. The four seasons around the area are great because now that spring has just started is mostly cold but sunny, and our summers are hot, fall is cold and winter is cold with a lot of rain.
