KOBE BRYANT, GRAUMAN’S CHINESE THEATER, OZZIE OSBORNE & A PICKLED TONGUE SANDWICH ON RYE - 09/28/09 11:35 AM
Only in L.A. are all the things in this blog title possible to see in one afternoon. Well, sort of. My daughter wanted to see some star's homes, so yesterday we made a day of it. If you enjoy watching humanity on parade, Grauman's Chinese Theater is absolutely the place to be. We started out there by looking at the stars on The Walk of Fame. While a sidewalk marker of Julia Roberts may be eye catching, the real show revolves around the people at eye level. There were wanna' be's, might be's, and those that just want to be seen.

FICO scores have been a mystery since they were first unveiled many years ago. Toss in today's short sale market, and neither Houdini nor any self-respecting Las Vegas odds maker would try to predict what your scores may be. However, I just read the article below in this morning's L.A. Times. I thought it was very insightful:
NATION'S HOUSING Mortgage problems are walloping Americans' credit scores Late payments, delinquencies, short sales and foreclosures are on the rise -- and so are the number of borrowers seeing their credit scores plummet, according to scoring company VantageScore Solutions By Kenneth R.

Other than being a real estate/mortgage broker, if I had it to do all over again, I'd be a food and travel reporter. That way, I'd get paid to do two things I really enjoy. But since I'm not, I'll just blog about it instead. I took my family and some friends to Oak Glen yesterday for a day of apple picking and exploring. If you're not familiar with Oak Glen, it is located in the lower mountains above Yucaipa. It's an easy, scenic drive. On they way up, we came to a stop while a group of horse back (1 comments)
OK, OK relax for a minute. No need to start hoarding water, duct taping your doors & windows shut or fleeing the onslaught of alien Obamas. This isn’t 1938, I’m not Orson Wells, and Obama really isn’t an alien. Although judging by the amount of hysteria over the last year or so, only one of those three disclaimers seems obvious. (Look at my photo and then Orson’s) And don’t worry, this isn’t some political rant all done up in either red or blue. Just for the record, I didn’t vote for Obama, nor do I support the “spend now & we’ll (0 comments)
Don't you hate when the people around you talk and joke during The National Anthem? I sure do. To me, those are both signs of rudeness and stupidity at the least, and more than likely disrespect toward our country. I officiate high school basketball, and have the privilege of hearing The National Anthem 30-50 times a year. Sometimes, it's a small child singing totally off key, sometimes it's the standard Whitney Houston-Super Bowl version, and sometimes it's an amazing version done by the home team's pep band(Upland High's gets me every time!). There are two things in common with (2 comments)
