This is in-line with what his happening around Los Angeles, California and the nation.
Home prices in Pico-Robertson are down about 30% from the peak in 2006.
Rents are rising.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Home prices fell in December for a fourth straight month in most major U.S. cities, as modest sales gains in the depressed housing market have yet to lift prices.
The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller home-price index shows prices dropped in December from November in 18 of the 20 cities tracked. The steepest declines were in Atlanta, Chicago and Detroit. Miami and Phoenix were the only cities to show an increase.
The declines partly reflect the typical slowdown that comes in the fall and winter.
Still, prices fell in 19 of the 20 cities in December compared to the same month in 2010. Only Detroit posted a year-over-year increase. Prices in Atlanta, Las Vegas, Seattle and Tampa dropped to their lowest points since the housing crisis began.

I’m noticing swathes of seagulls soaring over our neighborhood of late.
Is this just me? Have they always been there?
It’s magnificent to watch a flock of them fly by, tilting and turning in the sun.
The sea must be close by.

I just heard about a home invasion on Holt and Cashio.
The residents had left their place and when they came back, some men were in there stealing stuff.
I don’t believe anybody got hurt.
I saw a big poster for this special on the north-east corner of Olympic and Robertson.
I took advantage of it today and was very happy with the service at smilemakersdentistry.com. 310-358-1200.
I had not seen a dentist in 15 months but at that price, I had no excuse.
I do have a problem with grinding my teeth at night and it is wearing away the enamel.
Alexander Technique has something to say here:
Let my jaw, lips, tongue, eyes and forehead melt
To let my neck be free
To let my head balance forward and up
To let my back lengthen and widen
To let my knees direct forward from the hips and ankles and away from each other
To let my shoulders widen to the sides
Note: Directions are a sequential set of instructions that help to lengthen the spine, free up the breath, and create mental and physical ease. Directing is the process of thinking, wishing, ordering, projecting or seeing the above series of movements. Although directing may cause physical change, it is important to try not to “do” the directions. Directing is a mental process. Physical changes may occur as a result of directing, but the main focus is the thought. Finally, the sequence of directions is important, since the optimal physical pattern can only occur with the initial freedom of the neck and head.
If you have a problem with clenching and grinding, see if you can catch yourself starting to clench as you begin to unwind during constructive rest or as you drift into sleep. This is a very important moment and takes quite a lot of practice to notice. Alexander Lessons can dramatically heighten your awareness of your body, and can help you to prevent clenching in the daytime and grinding at night. Once you are able to notice the beginning stages of clenching and grinding as you slip into sleep, you have the opportunity to retrain the habit. This approach has worked for both myself and for my students.
