Redondo Beach Schools, Tulita Open House - 05/31/08 03:21 AM
Tulita Elementry School on Prospect in South Redondo had open house last week. The school event started in the Library with a display of the Young at Art series for each class. Cookies were for sale and raffle baskets. And it rained. Even rain did not stop the good time. We went from class to class seeing all the progress and expectations for each grade. The teachers were amazing. One teacher I could nickname the "child whisperer" like dog whisperer...she just understood children and spoke a language to them that reached them on a deeper level. Another teacher was fun, sporty (0 comments)
Sydney Pollack left us a masterpiece of life - 05/28/08 10:43 AM
Missing for now the amazing Sydney Pollack. I am so grateful for his gifts to our society. To know more of his career check out IMDB. Internet movie data base. It is as complete as you can get on every movie, tv, actor, director, everyone....who worked in the project. To know real estate is to know the movie that Sydney Pollack made on Frank Gehry. This is the number one choice I suggest that you buy. Sketches of Frank Gehry (2005)
To know comedy watch Sydney Pollack as a performer or Director. I am sorry its over (0 comments)
More-Troops McCain - 05/25/08 11:01 AM
If one word is the lead image then why not this for McCain? Obama took Change. Hillary should find one good word too. Actually change will be, anyone, in fact. More Troops make sense to someone who could have used some help back in the war. Here is the fact from my point of view. My brother, my husband and my cousin were all in Viet Naim. Each paid the price far past the war. Everyone knows that the war ending won or lost did not stop the suffering of those who served. More caution, more thought, more preparation, more truth, (3 comments)
FHA and FICO are about to get married and it could last! Buy now or cry later - 05/20/08 08:08 AM
Yes its official! Brian Montgomery spoke at the National Association of Real Estate Editors. Kenneth L Harney of the Washington Post wrote in the LA Times on Sunday May 18th 2008. Mid July the FHA will start using the FICO ratings. Pre rules let everyone come to the home buying party. It s kind of like insurance in a way. The healthy people don't want to pay the same rate. It should be shouted front page news. Realtors should run, write, publish educate for the short time left to get their clients out there that will only get these loan deals. I (2 comments)
Basketball in the parks -soundproof windows - 05/12/08 12:43 AM
I am wondering about sound proof windows. Advice needed. One of my clients is buying near a park in Redondo Beach. The park has a basketball court right behind the property. The games on the weekend get fast and loud. There are two courts side by side so its a double game going on. Milgard- Cornerstone -One stop and whoever you out there know that install and sell them in our area South bay, Redondo Beach, Torrance, Long Beach, Orange County. They must have great windows around here for airport noise anyway This is the resourse place. I'm open to hear. (1 comments)
