Linked In has many job postings this week!

If you're seeking employment, and you're not already on LinkedIn, www.linkedin.com , I suggest you create a profile right away. I just checked in and there were nearly a dozen jobs posted within my groups/connections, and many were in the Torrance/Santa Monica/Los Angeles area.

At the least, you can follow groups, find out what employment/staffing companies are available, and job/skill trends.

Door to door solicitors again -

Residents - I know most of you know this, but some of our friends and relatives need to be reminded!  There is a slow return of door to door magazine sales and contractors pitching their "wares".

I just spoke with a neighbor Jo who had lengthy conversations with both. A young girl, (once again saying what they all do, that she lives "up the street")  just sold another neighbor Em, a bogus magazine subscription that "goes to a veteran". By the time the other neighbor Jo tipped her off,…

A Good Jog

Over the years I have found that San Pedro has many places that are very eye catching and pleasing. These are really good places for people to get pumped and do a nice workout. Places like the area between Point Fermin and the White Point Nature Preserve offer so much inspiration for a beginning jogger like myself. It's a good length strip next to the street with a view to the  ocean, surrounding trees and grass. This is a good place for a beginner to challenge themselves to make it from one…
