The Facts, Jack:

Sorry, SKIPPY, Don't have a job, I have PRIVATE INVESTMENTS. Passive income from multiple streams :)

No I don't flip cars, houses or burgers.

No I won't tell you my secrets, but NICE TRY!!

I don't work for ANYONE, which is why I can surf in the morning if I want to.

If it makes you feel more like a MAN to think I am FAKE, then, by ALL MEANS, KNOCK YOURSELF OUT!!!:) I actually PREFER for people to think of me as just a SurferChick, hence the name.:)then you know they like you for YOU right off the bat, rather than for your wealth.

-DvDs, books are great for those who WRITE them, because they're usually getting paid, giving seminars, selling related items, etc...but the best secrets are RARELY given up and even if they were, this economy has broken most of the rules...its a RAPIDLY-changing world... I guess you're telling us you've dropped a small fortune on books, dvds, etc???...Go, Skippy, Go!!!

My family/close friends "mentored" me from a tender young age in how to NOT be a "whatchamacall-it" and work for the rest of my life. I made some wise desisions early in life and I was very blessed in my timing and decision making.

I give all the credit to God and the Source of life, because I was just listening and following what I'd learned. I've also lost some money, but I've continued to be strongly in the red even during our 'economic crisis'. I am tremendously grateful, giving thanks each day. I know many people who lost big chunks of their portfolios.

I truly do send you peace, blessings and light to you and yours for all things good.

I told you once, About the shady connections betwen, Guido,from hawhorne, Tavera, Golden Gym and a pussicat call Jean Vogel, from the South Bay Industry Council.

Obuisly the brain was Guido and Vogel, and the beneficiary Tavera. And the SUCKERS the taxpayeers of that city of good sleepy neighbooards. Vogel wroted and the "convicted felons" did the final trick with our stupid and incompetent federal government ..

Also it should come to the attention of anyone with half a brain, that Tavera and bodyguard, almost became Guidos shades. Get to work inocent baystanders ..

What is not exposed in the article is that the owner of Golds Gym is a good friend, huge contributor and confidant of Mayor Larry Guidi. Guidi tried to use his position to influence other cities to give the owner "sweetheart" financial deals to establish other gyms. The owner tried to get involved with many South Bay city council and mayor races to help establish a network of influence not only for him but also for Guidi's benefit. Hawthorne, good luck getting paid back.

This guy figure it out, but don't forget Jean Vogel from the Industry Council, that was how the planned the language to the ammiable dambells of the federal government hey here is another one Reposses Auto, Al the owner lend Guido and then his bussiness partner, the ex council a place to sell motorcycles,in a exchange for variances to the conditional use permit onthe lots he owns..

Dear humans I will just said This Guido guy, if this was Italy, he will be in jail longe time ago. The problem is the incompetence of law enforcement, meaning the FBI, Hawthorne Police, and those that left the city, such as city managers, Planning Director, two ex Chiefs of police; Port and Prentice. None of this bother
to talk to criminal enforcers at higher level, about the corruption. How in the world can you have two ex chiefs of police being city manager. How well rounded where they in city managment finances???
How come, on the other hand in the near city Mayor of Inglewood Dorn, a criminal attorney went down indicted? Ship out of politics for good. Wake Up sleepe Hawthornians and stand up for honesty and justice, this Gold Gim is one more deal ofthat ignorant criminal call Larry Guido, Mayor of Harphorne

This gym has a lot of issues, but I gotta say that Pam's not being there is not such a bad thing. First of all, she works up the street at Lou's gym - and I know for a fact that she quit. Secondly, the stuff she's all upset about that put her on the verge of tears - did you ever ask her what it was? I did - getting in to work late and pushing the night guy into overtime; texting and using the cell phone at the front desk; walking away from the front desk and having that tattoo-guy who was supposed to do sales do her job. She'd complain about that, but those all seem legit to me. Seriously, I hated waiting to check in while she was busy chatting away with her boyfriend on the phone or was talking to a member about sex-toy parties. We did get used to seeing her face for five years (DEFINITELY not ten!), but really, Pam is not who I go there to see.
Lou started his own gym on Herondo in Redondo Bch and Pam is now working for him.

I'm not aware of any good reason to consider zipcodes to be numeric,
despite the fact that they appear to be all numerals. In fact, the
very thing you want, having a leading zero(s),
