Kindergarten Memories - 08/31/11 08:41 PM
The start of a new school year brings back many memories. I remember my kindergarten "Dad's day" when your father visits your class room and you get to show off all of your artwork and other stuff you have been working on. One of the projects we were given was to draw a picture of our Dad which would also show what he did for a living.
All of the Dads went around the room and had to pick out their picture made by their little darlings. My Dad was the last one to pick out a picture, and the (2 comments)

Once in a lifetime opportunity to own both a beautiful home as well as a piece of history. Frank Vanderlip, the original developer of Palos Verdes, constructed this home as his first estate on the Peninsula in 1916 in the Portuguese Bend area, which he called the "Old Ranch Cottage", now known as the "Cottage".

RPV Dog Beach below Trump National Golf Course - 08/29/11 05:07 PM

With the recent closing of the Lunada Bay Market, it just underscores how important it is that we Lunada Bay residents support our local businesses. For me, I think it is particularly important for us to support Larry and the Lunada Bay Hardware store. Larry told me the other day that it has been very slow. I think it would be just a tragedy if the hardware store closed down. I know that I would dread having to drive down to Home Depot, Loews, etc. to fix a sprinkler or to get some plant food.

Where did the Peacocks in Palos Verdes come from? - 08/23/11 11:15 PM
Mr. Frank Vanderlip Sr. was an enthusiastic bird lover, maintaining an extensive collection of exotic birds in an aviary below his home in the Portuguese Bend area of Rancho Palos Verdes, The Cottage built in 1916. He even had a small structure built as a bird hospital and had a resident bird doctor. The origin of the peacocks that inhabit the Palos Verdes Peninsula is somewhat disputed. Frank Vanderlip Jr. , in an interview, stated that the peacocks were a gift from Lucky Baldwin, a prominant investor and businessman and a friend of Frank Vanderlip Sr. around 1924.

History of the Palos Verdes Landfill Site - 08/23/11 10:59 PM
Before the former Palos Verdes Landfill was created, and before the construction of the Botanical Gardens and Ernie Howlett Park in Rolling Hills Estates, the land under these areas was a large open pit mine. During the early 1900's the Dicalite Company began mining diatomaceous earth in the area now occupied by the South Coasrt Botanical Gardens off of Crenshaw Blvd, the former Palos Verdes Landfill site between Hawthorne and Crenshaw, and Ernie Howlett Park off of Hawthorne Blvd, , but at this time it was mostly surface mining. By 1929, open-pit mining was being pursued. In 1944 the mine was (0 comments)
The Vanderlip Estate is Not Haunted - 08/23/11 10:55 PM
Despite persistent rumors that the Vanderlip estate is haunted., there is absolutely nothing factual about these rumors. The home was built by Frank Vanderlip Sr., the original developer of the Palos Verdes Peninsula who, with an investment group, purchased the entire Palos Verdes Peninsula in 1913. Two completely untrue stories have circulated on the internet that the wife of Frank Vanderlip went crazy there, or that a daughter of Frank Vanderlip had an illicit affair and was put into an insane asylum across the street. These stories are ridiculous but the stories still appear on several websites devoted to haunted places. Mr. Vanderlip built (0 comments)

When Marineland closed in December1986,Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, which owned Sea World in San Diego, purchased Marineland, ostensibly to continue to operate it. Their intent, however, was to purchase Marineland solely to acquire Corky and Orky, a successful breeding pair of killer whales. Harcourt was in the process of rapidly expanding the Sea World enterprise throughout the nation, and was in desperate need of proven, successful breeding pairs of killer whales in order to supply their new Sea World locations with their headline act, "Shamu, the killer whale".

Mortgage Interest Rate Update - 08/12/11 09:21 PM
Interest rates dropped at the end of the week as investors continued to react negatively to the debt limit increase legislation. The stock market today ended up about 125 points, after alternating days of dramatic swings in the market up and down a minimum of 400 points each day. The extreme volatility in the market caused investors to continue to move money into bonds, thus driving their prices up and yields down. Interest rates moved down by up to 3/8 of a point for many mortgages. Interest rates are quickly approaching historical lows again. The perceived risk in investing in bonds due to potential increases in (2 comments)
