Do you have a dish form DirecTV or Dish on your roof?  Want to take it down?  Well, maybe you should leave it installed and install an Over The Air Antenna.  OTA, HD OTA. Digital

There are lots of videos on YouTube that talk about the mounting of OTA antennas on your dish.

Scam Alert–Please Share This Information
 
Don’t Fall For the Scam!
Pasadena Water & Power Is Not Calling Demanding Payment
Scammers are working in full force trying to trick people into sending them money. The calls look like they are coming from the City with a (626) 744-XXXX number but will then ask for a return call to a 1-800 number.  PWP never calls customers to make payment over the phone. Scammers will ask you to go to a local grocery store or nearby pharmacy to make payment using a gift card.  This is definitely a red flag. Please check out this helpful video:
If you or somebody you know was a victim of a fraud attempt and made payment to a scammer, please call and report the incident to the non-emergency police line, 626.744.4241.

Beware of Mortgage Companies & Insurance Policies
 

Have you been side blinded by your mortgage company trying to up sell you insurance, or worse, trying adding it to your mortgage and collecting monthly basically adding a premium to your mortgage. And people wonder how mortgage companies make money…… this sort of practice is sickening.  And needs to be stopped, I smell a class-action lawsuit for deceptive practices.

Food Delivery Services Eating Info Restaurant Margins – Many on the brink of closing
 

As the pandemic continues to cause decline in business and disruptions in the economy, restaurants are faced with another challenge on top of everything else.

With their increase overhead and decreasing margins services like Grubhub, Postmates, UberEats, DoorDash and others take a percentage of potential profits from restaurant owners.  So with the increase in these services the cost of meals are increasing.

Some services have cut fees during the pandemic, but the fees are still high.  Fees range from 13.5 to 40% of the order. Assuming the claim is that restaurant would not have received the order had it not been for the service.  Some cities have imposed a fee cap on these services/

I encourage friends and others to pickup direct from the restaurant when possible.

Bars, Breweries, and Wine Tasting Rooms are Required to Close in L.A. County
 

Bars, Breweries, and Wine Tasting Rooms are Required to Close in L.A. County

 

Effective June 28, 2020, the County of Los Angeles Public Health Order was amended to require that all bars, breweries, brewpubs, wineries and tasting rooms in Los Angeles County close unless they are offering sit-down dine-in meals. This includes closing bar areas in restaurants. There has been a sharp increase in new cases and hospitalizations. The timing of these increases is in line with the reopening of key sectors, including bars, which are places where people remove their face covering to drink while they may be socializing with people not in their household. To review the amended Order, please click here.

Please note that specific higher-risk businesses and locations remain closed. Public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household or living unit must also remain prohibited. Higher-risk businesses and locations include:

  • Lounges and nightclubs;
  • Bars, breweries, tasting rooms, craft distilleries, and wineries that possess a valid low risk restaurant permit issued by the County of Los Angeles;
  • Brewpubs, craft distilleries and wineries, with premises set aside for beer and/or wine tasting, that are exempt from the definition of a food facility by California Health and Safety Code Section 113789(c)(5), and do not hold a health permit for preparing and serving on site;
  • Public entertainment venues such as theaters, concert venues theme parks, and festivals;
  • Family entertainment centers such as bowling alleys, arcades and miniature golf courses, and batting cages;
  • Hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas not located on residential property; and
  • All events and gatherings unless allowed by the health Order.

While we are making good progress, it’s important to remember that the COVID-19 pandemic is still active. Residents, business owners and employees must observe physical distancing requirements and prevention techniques outlined above under the Safer at Home order. To learn more about the County of Los Angeles’ Roadmap to Recovery, please click here. Please remember that violation of or failure to comply with the County’s Order is a crime and punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.
