Arcadia CA - The Last 626 Night Market for 2013 Happy Labor Day     We are experiencing the hot days of what has been a relatively mild Summer in the San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles.  The warm hot weather is predicted to continue through the end of the week.   So what's one to do during a part of the Labor Day Weekend?   This past Saturday and Sunday, the 626 Night Market was held at the historic Santa Anita RaceTrack in Arcadia.  This was the last Night Market for Summer and for 2013.   Although it is a Night Market - my previous visits this year have been in the late afternoon.  This weekend, it was much too hot to go earlier, so I waited until the sun went down.   Obviously, there were others with the same idea.   The long lines of cars on Huntington Drive snaked slowly into the pa...

Please do not lease our future to greaddy Banker's Congress buddies ! They can always borrow money via " special client packages " ,but most of us will not be able to do so ever again at resonable interest rate !   Congress Eyes Eliminating Fannie and Freddie   Congress will soon be debating possible changes to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government sponsored enterprises (GSEs) that purchase or guarantee mortgage-backed securities on the secondary mortgage market.
