Most of you are probably familiar with the Prospector. You may have gone there to see a local band or grab a drink but, have you ever had dinner there? The Prospector is a great place to go if you are good and hungry. The portions are hefty. If you have a hankering for a steak dinner, you will definitely get your money's worth. You can grab dinner and then stay for the bands.
I ordered the Prime Rib special, which was only $16.99 and requested it… Continue

On Sunday, November 30th, I attended The Lighting of the Trees in the Pond and Movie in the Park Holiday Event. This was a great way for my little family (me, my husband, and three little ones) to open our holiday season! It all took place at Heartwell Park at around 4:30pm. They were going to be playing… Continue

Supporting local Long Beach businesses is one of our top priorities at 562citylife.com, so I was a little extra stoked when I met the designer of the best Obama shirt I've seen so far and found out that it's actually designed right here in the LBC!
The Obama44 design is in reference to both the fact that Obama will be our 44th President and is also a nod to Hank Aaron who in his rookie year wore the number 44.…

The wife will kill me for posting this in a public spot, but I don't care! I think it's bad ass the way that she can just sit down for an hour or two and just bust something like this out... this is for her christmas gift tags that she gives to some of our family and friends. Trust me if you know Julie, then you know all about her tags! We don't really give big elaborate gifts, but she AWLAYS puts a lot into the wrapping and the tags are the signature piece.
I'll post pics of the… Continue

If you want to work off some extra calories BEFORE you dive into your Thanksgiving feast, there's Justin Rudd's Turkey Trot. There's a 5K, 10K run and a kids 1/2 mile run. And if you don't feel like running, you can get there at 7:30 and walk to the finish line. More than 4,000 runners and walkers are expected and 350 of those that cross the finish line will be handed a FREE pie!
The proceeds will go to The Community Action Team. If… Continue

What if my mortgage lender or servicer goes belly up?
The problem is the lender's, not yours. Continue paying your mortgage as before. During the bankruptcy process, your lender will transfer your loan file to a new owner or servicer, and both parties will notify you by letter. If you mistakenly send your payment to the old lender's address, you won't owe a late fee if you're within the federally mandated 60-day grace period after the transfer.
But what happens to my escrowed… Continue

What happens to my brokerage account if my firm goes bankrupt?
Brokerage firms must follow strict rules about segregating customers' investments from the firm's money, so your accounts should remain intact even if the brokerage goes under and another firm takes over its business. For example, stocks, bonds and mutual funds are physically held by an independent depository, not the brokerage firm.
What if the firm misappropriated my assets?
You have another layer of protection in… Continue

This blog will be in three parts, one for bank accounts, a second blog on the safety of your broker and then finally your mortgage.

Didn’t get a refund or stimulus check in 2008? Well you might qualify in 2009.
Perhaps you didn't qualify for a stimulus payment -- or for any payment at all -- because your 2007 income exceeded the threshold.
For the 2008 tax filing season, you may get a second shot at a check. So many people have lost their jobs this year, or have seen their incomes fall, they will get a chance for a credit on their 2008 return when they file, thanks to a little-noticed tax-law twist.
Under the… Continue
