As If you are driving on the Pacific Coast Highway from Santa Monica heading north the first prominent Landmark you see is this great Villa on a high promontory. Oil magnate J. Paul Getty had his ranch house on this bluff overlooking the Pacific. This Malibu Villa was modeled after Villa dei Papiri in Italy. If you are visiting Southern California and are heading out to Malibu to see the beautiful coast, I suggest you take time out from site seeing and drop in to the Getty Villa.

Has anyone heard of Private National Mortgage Acceptance Company, LLC (PNMAC) also known as "Penny Mac"? - 02/04/09 03:21 AM
Has anyone heard or seen this new Mortgage Company called Penny Mac? Well interestingly enough it was formed by the ex-Countrywide CEO Stanford L. Kurland. If you think that is interesting, it is even more interesting the company is based in Calabasas, CA. Countrywide's old headquarters was in Calabasas, CA as well. He left Countrywide in 2006, he knew what was about to occur, unlike the rest of the Financial Community. Now he knows again, the former president and chief operating officer of Countrywide Financial Corp. is running a new mortgage company that acquired distressed mortgages from non other then Countrywide.
