In order to teach an important lesson to their children the parents gave their two children a large plate, a toothbrush, several straws, toothpicks, and a brand new tube of toothpaste. They told them that the toothpaste and your words are the same, and as such they told them they may choose to do with it as they please.They played politely at first while the parents just watched. When one slipped and made a slight mess, they both looked to the parents apprehensively. When the parents' demeanor didn't change from their complacently pleasant state the children really started to get into the spirit. They soon found that they had squeezed out the entire tubes and rubbed smeared and generally made a mess of things.The parents then asserted the next phase of this important lesson. They instru...

Yesterday morning In West Covina, CA a woman called 911 about a burglar in her home. The burglar shot and killed her WHILE she was on the telephone with the 911 operator. Needless to say there was not much police could do once they got to her home. In many large cities it can take several minutes before you even get connected with a 911 operator. Once that happens your emergency has to be first understood by the operator and then transmitted to a local dispatcher, who in turn, must relay the information to the patrol officers on the street. Patrol officers then must commute to your location which may be hampered by mistakes and/or misinformation within the chain of no less than four people.Protect yourself! Make it a point to have the local police department dispatch number programed on...

There are three certainties in life; Death, Taxes, and the Media will get it wrong. This joke happens to be all too true when it comes to Real Estate. It is not necessarily the media's fault that they get up and talk about something they know nothing about. I mean they have the charts, stats and facts right there in their hand, so how hard can it be? The fault lies in the information that the news reports. The information just so happens to be way behind, actually too far behind. Just how far behind you might ask? The average TV report and the information that Capital Hill used to determine they needed to lower rates, increase FHA limits, and vote on an emergency stimulus package is generally at least 6 months old, but are more often 9-months old. Even the leading media sources designed...

About West Covina-A Historical StoryWest Covina had some very colorful beginnings. As part of the San GabrielValley, West Covina, along with its surrounding cities, was part of the land that the Missions of California were founded. The Mission San Gabriel Archangel, located in present day City of El Monte, was the fourth mission founded in Sept. 8, 1771 and land, for various agricultural developments, was acquired. Around 1852, a site located north of what is currently Workman Avenue and Orange Avenue, became the original site of the Heritage House, owned by John Rowland and William Workman. They inquired the land from Governor Pico that became known as the Ranch La Puente. The Ranch was divided whereas Workman took the portion now encompassing the western section of West Covina, Rowlan...
