I post here because we're relocating to the area and want more information before we make the big move. I often post to other forums in states I'd once considered but rarely to my home state.
BC California is the joke and laughing stock of the nation and it's fun to check in from time to time. That's the short answer. Have fun paying for illegals' healthcare once you arrive. Thank your brilliant governor for that.

Busch Gardens
Phases New Wave Dancing
The Ozone Disco
Lockheed and Hughes presence before they pretty much bailed.
I grew up in the San Fernando Valley. Remember all the orange groves? Especially the ones around CSUN.

Yep remember the orange groves both in SFV and SGV. My uncle was the head gardener for the Dohainey (spelling) estate. With his job came a house. They lived just outside Beverly Hills with dozens of orange trees. I am not sure a day went by that we didn't have an orange is something. Of course when we visited them which was quite often we would bring home sacks of oranges. I also remember when almost everyone had an avocado tree in their yard Our oldest daughter is a CSUN grad as is her husband.

SoCal native: I remember the places you are talking about as well Just before we left my husband was PR director for Lockheed and my mom actually worked there for a short while during WW2 It is fun to remember days gone by as long as we do not get in a habit of dwelling on them.

I was raised in Eagle Rock and on the border of Pasa. I heard there was a big fire in Eagle Rock yesterday but haven't heard anything more

Thank you piperdiva and nmnita for turning this to something more pleasant than the political bashing it became.

Jeez, for someone who claims they are smarter than everyone else, you clearly aren’t. As far as you can see isn’t much farther than your prejudices and hatred for others.

No, we really didn't have much in the way of Mexican food believe it or not. We had more Italian style restaurants or of course, basic American. The number of places to eat in Eagle Rock were few and are between. For good Mexican food we would drive out to the Upland area or there was a good one, (mom and pop) in Azusa. I think most of the places we used to love are gone now: We had a great place we loved in Highland Park used to go there for breakfast: can't remember the name or it, but would if I heard it again. We hung out at Bob's Big Boy of course and out favorite Italian place was owned by a family who had come to America right after the war. Their son was in my class. Other places we loved were closer to downtown like Little Joe's which I know is long gone and Phillipi's which I think is still there. Of course every drug store had a soda fountain.

Casa Bianca is an Italian restaurant and was founded in 1955.
