Can you ask your readers what’s the safest way to prevent dogs from peeing on the new tree in front of my house?
Ok, readers. What’s the safest way to prevent dogs from peeing on those new trees in front of our houses?
This is actually a really good question. I heard black pepper does the trick, but I never tried it. I obviously don’t want to hurt any dogs, but would love to know if anybody has a good tip. Also, are we supposed to put warning signs? Or would dogs not even know what they say? Chime in!
A reader asks:
“A while back I saw something about these City By The Sea t-shirts on your website, but I don’t recall any of the details. Do you have any idea where I can purchase two of these shirts?”
I’ve blogged about this in the past. I feel like I’ve blogged about so many of these issues for so long that I’m really getting bored of myself.
Ok, here I go. The beach was crowded this past weekend. Lots of people were enjoying the water, but the beach was officially closed after Labor Day. That means no lifeguards were on duty. Should the City extend our beach season? Perhaps they should at least make it weekends only while the weather is still warm? The following photo was taken on Saturday. At 4pm, the beach was still crowded. Discuss.

From a reader of the blog:
I always look for your site to keep me updated on Long Beach.
Has anybody looked into the height of the proposed condo buildings and whether our fire dept has the ladders/ tools to reach up to the new height- in case of a fire or other emergency?
I grew up in East Meadow and remember when the hospital was built- they couldn’t use the top 2 floors as he fire equipment didn’t reach that high.
Maybe this will bring attention to the over size buildings that they want to build.
I know this has been brought up on internet, but I would love a more official response to this. Any firefighters out there?
I’ve been blogging about our City by the Sea since 2008, so obviously I care about this place. It just came to me today how I should really join the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce. Any members out there? What are the pros and cons of being a member? thanks!
Love your blog! I am hoping that maybe you can help. I have been very happy to see the return of the Osprey’s over the last few years and keep an eye on their nest on the channel marker near Arizona St. Over this winter, the light and the platform on which they build their nest disappeared. I saw that they returned before last weekend and tried to rebuild their nest, but I don’t think they can without the platform. I am sure that the light has to be replaced as a necessary navigation requirement, but afraid that it may be too late. Maybe someone on your blog can do something.
Two questions. One is from Facebook, the other from twitter. Here you go:
- A resident who lives in a LB High Rise asks: “I need a new PTAC dual aircon/heating unit and am looking for a reasonably priced company to do the job! The internet is not providing me with much help! Thanks!”
- Can someone please recommend a good neurologist close to Long Beach?
