A few day ago, Frank McCourt, owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, took a loan from FOX to "meet payroll". http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/dodgers/2011/04/frank-mccourt-dodgers-fox-bud-selig-loan-payroll.html MLB commissioner, Bud Selig, decided this did not look good, and ordered a league representative to take over operation of the Dodgers.  http://www.theeastsiderla.com/2011/04/mlb-takes-over-the-dodgers/   Baseball fans will have many opinions .... But I see something else here .... Is FOX interested in making loans? If so, I know of a large number of buyers (and homeowners wanting to refi) that no longer qualify for a mortage under today's stringent bank standards.  Many are self-employed, small business people, who actually are able to make their payments, and are not bad credit risk...

Spring is near!  The squirrels are at play in the Mount Angelus neighborhood in Northeast Los Angeles.     Note:  The squirrels residing in Highland Park are Fox Squirrels. " Fox squirrels (Sciurus niger) were introduced to the Los Angeles area in about 1904. Civil war and Spanish American war veterans residing at the Sawtelle Veteran’s Home on Sepulveda and Wilshire Boulevards brought fox squirrels to this site from their homes in the areas surrounding the Mississippi Valley (possibly Tennessee).

Save this Date!  Sunday, June 5, 2011, Lummis Day, The Festival of Northeast Los Angeles returns to Heritage Square. Although the original venue of Sycamore Grove park was large and convenient, I think Heritage Square provides a wonderfully unique experience set amid grand mansions of earlier times.

A new Bike Lane opened on York Boulevard in Highland Park on back December 2, joining bike lanes already open on Avenue 50. Bike Lanes are planned for in Eagle Rock. Several local bloggers wrote about our bike lanes as they first opened: http://highlandpark.wordpress.com/2010/12/06/new-bike-lanes-on-york-blvd/ http://highlandpark.wordpress.com/2011/01/29/the-cost-of-a-boulevard-bike-lane/   But, speaking as an automobile driver here, I soon realized I did not know the rules of the road that apply to sharing the streets with bicyclists.  I think that might be true for many drivers. Here's a good example:  If a driver needs to make a right turn, do you merge into the bike lane before making the turn, or are you supposed stay out of the bike lane completely, and cross it only when you come...

OK.  This morning Punxsutaweny Phil, the nation's original weatherman, did NOT see his shadow, indicating "early spring".  Think about that: When you see shadows, it is a bright, sunny day.   If you don't see shadows, it is cloudy and overcast.  So, "sunny" equals more winter?  What's with that? February 2 is the middle point between Winter Solstice on December 21 and Spring Equinox on March 20. And forklore has it that if the midpoint of Winter is bright and sunny, the remaining weeks of Winter will be harsh and stormy.  So ... Seeing a shadow on February 2 equals "bright and sunny" which equals more more harsh Winter weather to come.  More here. In ancient Celtic traditions, the middle points between solticies and equinoxes were known as Cross Quarter Days and were celebrated as High ...
