Echo Park in the news

Twitpic by RosalineMae

You may have read that Echo Park’s famous goose Maria (made famous by an OK Go music video, then a Facebook page, then the brilliant snowball effect that comes with celebrity life in Los Angeles) was moved to the Los Angeles Zoo in preparation for the upcoming Echo Park Lake rehab project this summer. Well, as it turns out, Maria is actually a boy! The Zoo learned of the official gender while doing a checkup after the gander arrived. Dominic Ehrler told the LA Times, “He’s Mario now. But I’ll call him Maria if he doesn’t respond to Mario.”

In case you’re wondering, Dominic will be able to visit Mario/Maria.

The temp shop is open daily from noon to 7:00 pm. Check out the video about from LA Taco.


We found out on Tuesday this week that Writer Brando Skyhorse’s “The Madonnas of Echo Park” won the Hemingway/PEN Award for first fiction.

Congrats to Brando Skyhorse! And yes, the book is still on my New Years Resolutions to-do list, but I’ll be stopping by the library fairly soon to grab a copy.

    Hola Chris, creo que Wealthy Affiliate es de lejos el entrenamiento más práctico que he intentado hasta ahora cuando se trata de hacer dinero en línea. He empezado siendo un novato, a ser alguien con conocimientos de marketing de afiliados. Y estoy viendo la punta del iceberg. Tengo un largo camino por recorrer. Y es bueno que el entrenamiento en el interior esté siempre actualizado. Nunca te quedarás sin conocimiento de lo que es lo último.

    Tenemos que estar al tanto de los programas de estafa y siempre investigo en Internet antes de unirme a cualquier programa para hacer dinero. Esto es muy diferente de lo habitual porque tienes que vender joyas de Swarovski. Así que tendrás que comprar acciones para mostrarlas a los demás, ¿verdad? No parece fácil. Y los kits de inicio no son baratos! Y no me gustan los esquemas de MLM también. Creo que estos esquemas tarde o temprano se derrumbarán porque los nuevos miembros siempre pagan por los antiguos, ¿no? Incluso si la compañía es una marca conocida mundialmente como Swarovski…GraciasAlex
