How bad is the economy? Even stores devoted to liquidation are closing. Everything must go from the everything-must-go store at Base Line and Archibald in Rancho Cucamonga. Reader Andy shot the photo and says his first reaction was a startled, “Is the liquidation store liquidating itself?”
Kids! Get your own stegosaurus, triceratops or pteranodon! Seen at the Chino Promenade center (in the 21st century).
A lot of attention has been paid to undecided voters, but in Claremont, one homeowner has decided to urge a blanket “no” vote. Seen on Indian Hill Boulevard.
So who do you like in the election? I’m leaning toward Gun Show, although Credit Repair makes some good points. Seen in Ontario at 4th and Via Asti, west of Ontario Mills.
Well, it’s nice of Fresh & Easy (the one on Mountain Avenue in Upland) to begin carrying the local paper, even if it is in a rack for a marginally better-known rag.
While hiking above Claremont on Potato Mountain, Marc Campos saw the top of a water tower below him in which Potato is spelled Potatoe — and someone, he’s guessing grammatically minded hikers, crossed out the E with a “no” symbol made of rocks.
Of course, it’s also possible the rocks were placed there by birds. You know, quail.
A Rancho Cucamonga grocery store says it offers “More choice” — then seems to prove it by offering not one but two doors marked “Enter.”
On Route 66 in Glendora the other day, I was delighted to find a hair salon named The Hairplex, an evident play on the name of Fairplex, the L.A. County Fair facility. I wonder if the salon sells anything on a stick.
I had always heard smog originated in L.A. and blew east, but while driving in an industrial park recently I suddenly wondered if smog may actually be headquartered on 9th Street in Rancho Cucamonga. Around the corner of the building were the words “Smog Check,” so that answers that. By the way, I like California Smog’s cheerful colors (and the fact that the flowers get plenty of oxygen and sunlight).
Whoever said the only certainties in life are death and taxes would have to rethink matters after seeing this vacant storefront on Carnelian Avenue in Rancho Cucamonga just above Base Line. With taxes apparently disposed of, now we can get to work on death.
