California is the home of Hewett/Packard, Wells Fargo, Cisco, Facebook, movie studios, Google, Yahoo, Netflix and ME, MGM, Warner Bros,

California mines all the Boron in US (whatever that is) lol!

We have one of the largest commercial fishing industries.

If California were a nation we would rank 8th in the world

I love my state, {#emotions_dlg.wub}warts and all

Actually we make lots of good stuff... apples, corn, wheat, sunflowers, and wineries. Even though it didn't start here, Russell Stover Candies has a factory here. We also have the "Barbed Wire Capital of the World", and can't forget the best sliders from The Cozy Inn.
