For the CEO of Daniel's Jewelers, helping people realize their sparkling and diamond-studded dreams is more than a business—it's a family legacy. In 1948, his grandparents mortgaged their home in order to open a small jewelry store in Bell Gardens, California. His grandmother managed the details of their office and family life while his grandfather sold jewelry, gifts, and socket-wrench sets, creating an in-store credit system that allowed customers to conveniently pay for their purchases. His father and uncle joined the ranks after college and expanded the company from the original storefront.
What began as a glimmer in the eye of Helene and Joe Sherwood has blossomed into a leading jewelry establishment that spans 61 locations throughout central and southern California. The Sherwoods and their employees still strive to treat their customers as family, and they still offer credit options for a variety of budgets. In addition to stunning gold and silver pieces, they showcase design-your-own wedding and anniversary bands and offer a full-range of jewelry repair, including clasps and re-sizing. The diamond rings in their exclusive Love Song collection are embedded with a pink diamond, and come in a music box that, when opened, plays either Debussy's famous Clair de Lune or the Alvin and the Chipmunks singing "The Song That Never Ends."

Whereas most safaris tend to muck up vehicles with mud and misplaced zebra stripes, Green Forest Car Wash's jungle-themed wash renders cars cleaner than when they entered. As cars roll through the five-minute wash, kids and drivers inside will spot a simulation lightning storm?along with a herd of dinosaurs that include stegosaurus, triceratops, tyrannosaurus, and more. But that's not to overlook the practical side of things; these themed washes launder cars with healthy doses of potent but still eco-friendly Simonize-brand chemicals. Green Forest Car Wash's owners empathize with their real-life brethren in nature, which is why they use biodegradable and eco-friendly products, and conserve, treat, and recycle the water they use. This sustainable practice has earned them proud membership in the WaterSavers program of the International Carwash Association.

Clay-oven-baked breads known as rotis accompany savory main courses, and desserts in the form of rice pudding add a sweet-ending note to a symphony of flavors, much as most conductors conclude orchestral pieces by distributing brownies to the audience.
