Thanks to everyone who thinks Think Prime is their favorite San Pedro restaurant.
While it is a great restaurant, it is not in San Pedro. Like Green Hills Cemetary, Think Prime is in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Most local whale watching ceases after the first week of April because usually the numbers of migrating whales drop off, but also…Continue

There is a new Goodwill Store under construction on the top level of The Terraces, along Western Avenue, in Rancho Palos Verdes.
Notices on the door state that there will be job interviews beginning on April 19 and they will be conducted at other outlets.

One day, I was called to the hospital to anoint Jose before a serious operation. When I arrived he was being wheeled into the operating room. The…Continue
