MORE HOMEOWNERS TIPS FOR A HAPPIER 2013

Tips:
#2-1 DRY OUT TOILET BOWL AND TANK:
Before I have to do any work on a toilet, I use a wet vac to suck out all of the water from the toilet bowl and tank. No more messes.

#2-2 ON RE-PLANTING GRASS SEED:
Put a window screen over a spot in your lawn that you’re reseeding and you won’t have to worry about birds eating the seeds.

#2-3 FIX A DRAIN CLOG:
The plumber couldn’t budge the clog in our upstairs bathtub drain, so he said we’d have to tear out the ceiling below in order to get at the pipe. But a contractor we know had another idea that made a lot more sense. He stuck the nozzle of a wet-dry vac into a roll of electrical tape to get a tight seal against the tub’s drain, and covered the tub’s overflow hole with a flexible rubber pad. Then he turned on the vacuum and, voilà: the clog was sucked out of the pipe, saving our ceiling—and our bank account.

#2-4 NO MORE STUCK OUTDOOR LIGHT BULBS:
Screw-in bulbs in outdoor fixtures can corrode and become stuck in their sockets over time and will often break when you try to twist them out. Rub Vaseline on the bulbs’ threads before screwing them in and you’ll never have a problem replacing the bulb when the time comes. Continue reading

Lomita Real Estate

Originally over 7 square miles of trees and dirt roads, Lomita California has survived natural disasters, boundary disputes, world wars, civil wars, some oil booms, and more. On top of all the disputes and wars, Lomita found that it was slowly being gobbled up by the neighboring cities, all anxious to annex everything until the little community literally was no more. After many attempts to incorporate as a city, Lomita finally made it happen in 1964 and that was to stop the booming development and continuing annexation attempts. Now only 1.87 miles square Lomita began to start controlling its own future by taking over the children’s schooling and the local water district.

What started out as a rural quiet community, with only a simple ranch house and some out buildings and barns on the old Narbonne property, a few dirt roads, a couple of fruit orchards and a narrow gauge electric railroad that stopped on Western Avenue, Lomita has grown into a modern city with warm and welcoming residents and still retains it’s quiet rural atmosphere and standard of living.
