Sewing help anybody?

So, I've decided to get myself a sewing machine for my birthday. I kind of knew already, but writing that post kind of nailed it. And I'm so excited! But I'm a bit clueless... Can you help, mabey?
I'm a real rookie to the world of sewing - I know maybe one stitch of sewing, and it's very crooked... My grandma used to be a seamstress, so I've seen her ancient Singer at work a lot. But now I'm about to buy a sewing machine - and I have no idea which! There are so many... I'd like a reliable beginner machine, so sew softies, some bags, a very simple piece of clothing maybe, so I don't really need anything fancy for start. What models would you recommend? Brand? What d you use?
And how about some instruction? Any good books about hand and machine sewing? Simple pattern books? Any good classes in southern California?
Any help/suggestion/advice will be really nice, thank you!
And now, back to something I kind of know how to do. Drwaing...

I have a singer, whcich I love. I got it at Walmart...sorry I dont know the model. I have had BAD experiences with a couple of machines by 'brother' but they were the very basic cheap ones.

Michal, Singer is the thing. I've owned one for many years (yeah, who would've guessed?), and it's robust and precise.
