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!

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.
