Go Ducks!

February 21st, 2017

Get ready to cheer on the Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Center in Anaheim this week!

Established in 1993 by The Walt Disney Company as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim following the hit 1992 movie The Mighty Ducks, the team is a staple of Anaheim pride. The Ducks are truly the pride and joy of Anaheim, and have grown since 1993 into a very successful and highly respected NHL hockey team.

The Mighty Ducks started strong, setting a record for most wins by an expansion team in 1993. Over the years the team has performed very well, including making the playoffs twelve times in their history. The Ducks have won five Pacific Division titles (2006–07, 2012–13, 2013–14, 2014–15, and 2015–16) and two Western Conference championships (2002–03 and 2006–07). The team officially changed its name to the Anaheim Ducks before the 2006-07 season, which is also the season when the Ducks won the Stanley Cup championship!

This Wednesday at 7:30 pm, The Ducks take on The Boston Bruins at home. Come on out to the Honda Center to cheer them on and celebrate the win with all of Anaheim!

Buy your tickets, check out the roster, and explore this season’s schedule at: https://www.nhl.com/ducks.

The Olson Company has been developing unique and affordable modern homes in urban settings for many years. Olive Walk, coming soon this spring, is one of our newest communities located in La Mirada, California!

Olive Walk is your perfect place to call home, developed in a contemporary urban style to suit your family’s needs. It truly captures the beautiful and breathtaking features and history of La Mirada. Olive Walk gets its name from La Mirada’s rich olive oil history that is still honored today. This community is ideal for individuals, couples, and families looking to live in an urban environment without giving up hometown comfort.

Olive Walk offers 2-story Spanish architectural style paired and single homes that are very well integrated with what an ideal neighborhood should have. These homes have up to 2,200 square feet of living space and include up to four bedrooms and three baths. Personalized floor plans from which you can choose your dream home are available.

Olive Oil, Your Heart and Valentine’s Day

February 14th, 2017

It’s that time of year again; last minute chocolates are flying off the shelves, roses are red, violets are blue, and love is in the air. Whether you are gearing up for a romantic night out or choosing to celebrate with friends instead, we at Olson Homes wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day!

Did you know that February is also National Heart Health Month, instituted over 50 years ago by President Lyndon B. Johnson to raise awareness for heart health? The fact that Valentine’s Day falls in National Heart Health Month is pure coincidence, but can you think of a better way to honor this holiday of love than by taking steps toward a healthier heart?

One of the best, most cost-effective, and all-natural ways to take care of your heart might be simpler than you thought. No tricks and hacks are needed here – just incorporate Olive Oil into your daily diet, and your heart will thank you. As Hippocrates, Father of Medicine, put it, when it comes to Olive Oil, the best advice is to, “Let food be thy medicine and let thy medicine be food.”

Hippocrates wasn’t the only ancient intellectual to be enamored with this liquid gold either. Other notable ancient olive oil enthusiasts include Democritus, who claimed it to be a cause of longevity, and Cleopatra, who used the oil’s aphrodisiac qualities to her full advantage. Modern science backs up these ancient intuitions, with olive oil being considered a “Super Food” for its restorative and preventative qualities.

Discover all of the possibilities in a single bottle of Olive Oil at: https://thepassionateolive.com/olive-oil-your-heart-and-valentines-day/.

In the 19th and 20th Centuries, La Mirada, California was known around the world as a major producer of high quality olives and olive oils. With groves that spanned miles, La Mirada grew olives of a quality only rivaled by the finest Mediterranean producers. Olive Walk, a community of spacious modern townhomes in the heart of La Mirada, was named in honor of the rich and bountiful origins of the city, and showcases the very best of all that the area has to offer.

February 2nd, 2017

SurfCityLogoResidents and visitors of Huntington Beach have a chance to join thousands of other runners this Sunday at the annual Surf City Marathon. The oceanfront course will take you along the beaches of Southern California’s Pacific Coast Highway heading north, then it weaves its way through the town of Huntington Beach and through Huntington Central Park.

The Surf City Marathon is considered to be one of the best race events in the country, and thousands of families come to enjoy this incredible and rewarding annual tradition. This race is well known for being scenic and flat, as runners come from all around to experience this exciting run. This year marks the 21st anniversary and welcomes runners from many different locales. Last year, this certified event saw more than 18,000 runners, as well as many wheelchair competitors, pass through the finish line.

In addition to the full marathon, the event also includes half marathon as well as a health and safety expo at the beach.
