If you want to know about Redondo Beach and you google it. You find out there is a round hill with trees where they had water to feed the sheep. The Indians were all over the area. They came for salt. Thats what I read. The land was for grazing from cattle to sheep. Later flowers and beach houses took over and there is no turning back.There is a dog park and some historic homes right there at 190th. its well worth the look. The parks are great, Wilderness is only one each has a different flavor mapquest it to see. The library is (1 comments)

That guy. What is his secret? He is real. All heart, funny interesting and still sharing the top secrets of success. Its a business. Why not? He is the messinger. He lost his house this year. He found out first hand that he and his family are the life...the good life. They are safe. He came out more grateful, even more wonderful. There are a lot of people out there that can tell you how to do it. They can tell you to be accountable. They can tell you to ask for referrals. Its Brian..You just want to do it his way ...the heart way. (6 comments)
