The Shakey's restaurants I remember from when I was younger were in Burbank and Sylmar. Both are still there.

Bob's Big Boy has also made a bit of a comeback, with quite a few new locations opening recently. The new ones I can think of are in Sun Valley, Bakersfield, Barstow, and Baker, CA. The old one in Toluca Lake is still there, too. There's also one in Glendale, but I don't know if it's at an old location or a new one.

Like Archie serenaded us, "Those Were the Days."
I went to Poly High, and remember how bad the flooding was on Roscoe. Tuxford and S.F. Road was always bad, even with just a mild storm, so I pretty much avoided it if there was any precipitation at all. What amazed me was the number of people that attempted to pass through that intersection anyway. There have been some improvements made there that should clear most of the flooding, but I still avoid it when it rains. Many of the other streets were also bad in the east valley, and they are still that way.

Interesting. I don't think one could get milk delivered in Laguna Niguel in the 60s at least down at my end of it. When we moved there was when we started buying it at the Supermarket (Lucerne from Safeway). In Ontario we could get Carnation, Shady Grove or Alta Dena as I recall.

Ok did someone mention the old Skateland in Whittier? I was really sad to see a landmark where all the neighborhood kids went (grew up in Whittier), and ppl from far away came to, it was awesome back in the 80's or Drive In Theatres there was the Sundown on Washington Blvd (Vineland is left, aside from a very few left)....What about The Federated Store (FedRated Guy, Shadoe Stevens)?? Fedco Dept Store (I remember the one in Cerritos, were there more?) What about Spires Diners, are there any left in Calif? The Pantry (somebody must have already mentioned it) but its now just that tiny corner dinner part, and the restaurant is Riordon's Tavern, I guess to compliment the newly built Ritz Carlton and renovated Staples area (LA Live), just a guess....

And if you want to go way back, does anyone remember the night clubs/night life of the 80's?? Florentine Gardens (both Hollywood & El Monte), Fantasia (both DTLA & La Puente), Mr. Js, the Casa, Marilyn's in Pasadena (underage club), Peppers (both Lakewood --I think it was? & Industry), the Hop (Lakewood & Industry), Blondies on Slauson (now a Nude bar) to name a few....Oooooh and embarrasing, the Pussycat theatres, or the "Cat Patch" in Whittier (my dad use to go there, oy vey!)

The Radio Station, The Mighty 690 am, always said something about Tijuana, god talk about a long long time ago, far far away (ok i'll shut up).......

Golden Arrow was a San Diego County dairy. That's all I remember about it. That and the milkman's name was Gene and the milk truck was white and orange.

You'd also hear that on B-100. I think they had some humongous transmission towers down there beyond the reach of the FCC that would have enabled them to broadcast to the moon if they wanted.

They weren't limited by the FCC's 50kw limit. It wasn't uncommon for the X stations to pump out 100 - 200kw.

And another Golden Arrow memory: the 1 gallon glass bottles of whole milk made a mess when you dropped a full one on to the asphalt tiles of the dining room.
