What a cool picture found on this month's (March 2015) Los Angeles Magazine's last page. Located on La Brea Ave in Hollywood. The same site where Charlie Chaplin stood for a photo and it is merged with a picture of today. Former site of the Charlie Chaplin Studios and presently owned by the Jim Henson Company.

Shaun Diamond, Rest In peace

I am deeply saddened to see this wonderful Pomona Police Officer I have had the pleasure of meeting many times go to a better place. This is the type of Officer that everyone loves and does his job serving ALL the people well. He is involved everywhere in the community and always has a cool laidback attitude that makes him so easy to talk to. His involvement with our Downtown Pomona was amazing, always keeping us safe and always involved with everything.

I'm upset, saddened and devastated to see one of the finest Law Officers this country has to offer now leave us. I wish much strength and love for his family and friends. He will be greatly missed.

Officer Diamond, you Rock!

Truth In Alcohol Bottles

I think if labels told the truth on Alcoholic Drinks, it'd be a heckuva lot easier to choose... wouldn't you say? What kind of night do you want tonight?

A Return?

Well, it's been about 8 months since I've posted anything on here... and I feel a comeback arriving! I've had many adventures and I haven't had the time to share them. Not even on Facebook or social media.

Now with my 2nd son off to college, I have a new office at home! Uh, more of an office/bedroom but nevertheless... uninhabited! Although my new State work of the past year takes up quite a bit of time, I've grown sick of coming home and vegging out with beer or a TV that is nothing but commercials and stupidity.

I shall return soon! Really, I will... I'll try... oh damn it.

Time To Choke Your Chicken?

After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s fatal in high doses. 

But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose!

Are You SYRIA?

An interesting take on the soon to be Syrian mess. Watch if you want to see something that makes sense, or more sense I should say. At least WAY more than corporate biased bullcrap that we're force fed.

It started with 26 unanswered points by Bonita and ended up in a 33-13 win for the Bearcats this past Thursday evening. Congrats to a great win once again!

Smudgepot 2013 Tonight @Citrus College!

Oh yeah Baby! It's here... the biggest rivalry in the Valley TONIGHT! Tickets are $10 and will be sold at Citrus College gates. San Dimas High has plenty of tickets available and Bonita High has sold out as of this morning.

It's time for Bonita to take back the Smudge Pot after last year's heartbreaking loss at the last minute. This is going to be one helluva game.

As a Bonita parent, I wish well to all the BEARCATS and especially to these absolute beasts:

Dimas Diaz, Christian McQueen, Noah Montoya, Thomas Loy, Jacob Karim and Christian Ramos.

see you at the game! GO BEARCATS!

100 Days?

Wow, this is the longest hiatus I've taken away from the blog. I am still here (for all 2 of you). It's been a long and hectic summer, the busiest so far! So many things have happened around town that I just can't cram it all into this post. I was happy for Freddie Rodriguez securing his run for Assembly coming up in September. I've been messing in local politics lately too...

I was at this year Claremont's 4th of July parade, my daughter marched with the El Roble Cheerleaders. It was so much fun! Here's the Claremont City Council all in one:

 I've managed to go to quite a few Dodger games this year (lucky me) and they are having an amazing year! Where are all the overnight Angel fans from 2000 and so on? (Crickets). Here' a pic of Gonzalez at bat (This was versus the Reds):

Downtown Pomona has had quite a few events this summer. I took a few of the guys from Bonita High School's football team to the Fist of Gold outdoor boxing. 11 fights total, all were great! Also, this year's D.P.O.A.'s anniversary party was so much fun. It was in the style of the 1920's at the historic Fox theater. Here's a pic of the flapper dancers:

Also, managed to hike the Marshall Canyon in La Verne earlier this summer. Can you spot the deer?:

Anyways, just wanted to pop my head in and say hi to my fellow bloggers

Downtown Pomona Trolley Debut!

Debuting this ArtWalk Saturday (May 11, 2013) in Downtown Pomona is the new Trolley! I have to give a big mention and thank you to the Great D.P.O.A. for this deal! If it wasn't for them, the Downtown Pomona we know now would not exist (and the great people from before, our beloved Artists too). Now you can visit the galleries that are a little further on the new trolley, such as the Pomona Packing House. The trolley will be running from 5:30pm to 9:30pm. The trolley will have 11 stops at various locations throughout Downtown. A complete tour will take approximately 30 minutes. And best of all, IT'S FREE... I cannot wait for this weekend!

Here is the current schedule for the stops:
Stop 1: Thomas Plaza, Farmers Market
Stop 2: Corner of Thomas & 3rd
Stop 3: Corner of 3rd & Main
Stop 4: Corner of 2nd & Main
Stop 5: Sculpture Garden, 500 Block of W. 2nd St.
Stop 6: Corner of Parcels & 2nd St.
Stop 7: E. Armstrong Gallery
Stop 8: Corner of Gibbs & 2nd
Stop 9: Western Univ. of Health Sciences
Stop 10: Pomona Packing Plant
Stop 11: AMOCA – then back to Thomas Plaza

Bicyclist Hit On Holt

As I was driving back from my diagonal trek to the supermarket across Pomona, someone was literally just hit on Holt Ave. How? I have no clue, it's a bright sunny day. Unless you're texting or chatting with someone in the car and not looking. Hope the guy is okay, but he was laying still on the road and people were standing around him. This happened about 20 minutes ago.
