Ren's Did You Know - The Ontario Hotel

'The Ontario Hotel, shown here along with the Ontario ...Land Office at right, opened in July 1883 and the grand hotel served visitors and potential land buyers. Built by A. W. Boggs of Riverside, the two-story hotel offered 12 rooms. Charles Frankish’s Ontario Land & Improvement Company purchased the hotel in 1886 and added an east wing in 1887, which added 24 rooms with verandas and balconies, and doubled the size of the dining room. The hotel closed in 1909 and in 1912 Frankish sold the building to build his Frankish Building on the site. The hotel was divided into two sections, with the original section moving to the southwest corner of Holt and Campus avenues to become an apartment house, but was demolished in 1932. The east wing moved to 208 West Holt, where for years it was known as the Tre-El-Een Hotel. It was demolished in 1969 to make way for a parking lot.'

Scammers target Southern California Edison customers for phone payment

Southern California Edison is warning its customers about scam artists trying to get payments over the phone.

The scammers tell people that their bills are overdue and persuade them to pay with a prepaid debit card to avoid having their service disconnected. The crooks then cash out the card.

Scammers recently started claiming that police would be sent to the victim's home or business if an immediate payment wasn't made, according to SoCal Edison.

Some scammers have set up telephone lines with a message from a so-called "Southern California Edison Disconnection Department."

About 13,000 SoCal Edison customers have reported receiving such calls over the past several years, the company said.

SCE customers who suspect a caller is a fraud should ask for the person's name, department and business phone number. They should then end the call and report it to local police or SCE by calling (800) 655-4555.

SCE offered the following tips:

  • Never give out credit card, ATM or calling card numbers.

  • Never use a call-back number provided by an unknown caller to verify billing information.

  • Never leave home based on a call from a supposed utility representative, who says the home needs to be vacant at a specific time for a utility-related cause. Instead call police, because it may be a burglar.

  • Be suspicious of anyone who arrives at your house without an appointment, asking to check an appliance, wiring or suggesting that there may be some other electrical problem in or outside your home.

Each year on November 27, people across the country celebrate National Bavarian Cream Pie Day.
To make a Bavarian Cream Pie, Bavarian cream, also called crème bavaroise, is poured into a baked pie crust and refrigerated.    French chef Marie Antione Careme, is given credit for the invention of Bavarian cream, which is a gelatin-based pastry cream, that was originally served in gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels, in France, in the early 19th century.
Cream pies are a favorite dessert of many and Bavarian cream pie is gourmet in taste and presentation as it is often topped with shaved chocolate or chocolate sauce and whipped cream.
Following is a “tried and true” Bavarian Cream Pie recipe for you to make and share with your family and friends as you celebrate National Bavarian Cream Pie day!
Within our research, we were unable to find the creator of National Bavarian Cream Pie, an “unofficial” national holiday.

National Day of Mourning - Fourth Thursday in November Image Credit:
National Day of Mourning – Fourth Thursday in November

National Day of Mourning is observed annually on the fourth Thursday in November.
The National Day of Mourning is an annual protest organized since 1970 by Native Americans of New England on the fourth Thursday of November, the same day as Thanksgiving in the United States. It coincides with an unrelated but similar protest, Unthanksgiving Day, held on the West Coast.
The organizers consider the national holiday of Thanksgiving Day as a reminder of the democide and continued suffering of the Native American peoples. Participants in the National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today. They want to educate Americans about history. The event was organized in a period of Native American activism and general cultural protests. The protest is organized by the United American Indians of New England (UAINE). Since it was first organized, social changes have resulted in major revisions to the portrayal of United States history, the government’s and settlers’ relations with Native American peoples, and renewed appreciation for Native American culture.

Thanksgiving Day - Fourth Thursday in November Image Credit:
Thanksgiving Day – Fourth Thursday in November

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.
In September 1620, a small ship called the Mayflower left Plymouth, England, carrying 102 passengers—an assortment of religious separatists seeking a new home where they could freely practice their faith and other individuals lured by the promise of prosperity and land ownership in the New World. After a treacherous and uncomfortable crossing that lasted 66 days, they dropped anchor near the tip of Cape Cod, far north of their intended destination at the mouth of the Hudson River. One month later, the Mayflower crossed Massachusetts Bay, where the Pilgrims, as they are now commonly known, began the work of establishing a village at Plymouth.
In November 1621, after the Pilgrims’ first corn harvest proved successful, Governor William Bradford organized a celebratory feast and invited a group of the fledgling colony’s Native American allies, including the Wampanoag chief Massasoit. Now remembered as American’s “first Thanksgiving”—although the Pilgrims themselves may not have used the term at the time—the festival lasted for three days. While no record exists of the historic banquet’s exact menu, the Pilgrim chronicler Edward Winslow wrote in his journal that Governor Bradford sent four men on a “fowling” mission in preparation for the event, and that the Wampanoag guests arrived bearing five deer. Historians have suggested that many of the dishes were likely prepared using traditional Native American spices and cooking methods. Because the Pilgrims had no oven and the Mayflower’s sugar supply had dwindled by the fall of 1621, the meal did not feature pies, cakes or other desserts, which have become a hallmark of contemporary celebrations.
Pilgrims held their second Thanksgiving celebration in 1623 to mark the end of a long drought that had threatened the year’s harvest and prompted Governor Bradford to call for a religious fast. Days of fasting and thanksgiving on an annual or occasional basis became common practice in other New England settlements as well. During the American Revolution, the Continental Congress designated one or more days of thanksgiving a year, and in 1789 George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving proclamation by the national government of the United States; in it, he called upon Americans to express their gratitude for the happy conclusion to the country’s war of independence and the successful ratification of the U.S. Constitution. His successors John Adams and James Madison also designated days of thanks during their presidencies.
In 1817, New York became the first of several states to officially adopt an annual Thanksgiving holiday; each celebrated it on a different day, however, and the American South remained largely unfamiliar with the tradition. In 1827, the noted magazine editor and prolific writer Sarah Josepha Hale—author, among countless other things, of the nursery rhyme “Mary Had a Little Lamb”—launched a campaign to establish Thanksgiving as a national holiday. For 36 years, she published numerous editorials and sent scores of letters to governors, senators, presidents and other politicians. Abraham Lincoln finally heeded her request in 1863, at the height of the Civil War, in a proclamation entreating all Americans to ask God to “commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife” and to “heal the wounds of the nation.” He scheduled Thanksgiving for the final Thursday in November, and it was celebrated on that day every year until 1939, when Franklin D. Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week in an attempt to spur retail sales during the Great Depression. Roosevelt’s plan, known derisively as Franksgiving, was met with passionate opposition, and in 1941 the president reluctantly signed a bill making Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday in November.
In many American households, the Thanksgiving celebration has lost much of its original religious significance; instead, it now centers on cooking and sharing a bountiful meal with family and friends. Turkey, a Thanksgiving staple so ubiquitous it has become all but synonymous with the holiday, may or may not have been on offer when the Pilgrims hosted the inaugural feast in 1621. Today, however, nearly 90 percent of Americans eat the bird—whether roasted, baked or deep-fried—on Thanksgiving, according to the National Turkey Federation. Other traditional foods include stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Volunteering is a common Thanksgiving Day activity, and communities often hold food drives and host free dinners for the less fortunate.
Parades have also become an integral part of the holiday in cities and towns across the United States. Presented by Macy’s department store since 1924, New York City’s Thanksgiving Day parade is the largest and most famous, attracting some 2 to 3 million spectators along its 2.5-mile route and drawing an enormous television audience. It typically features marching bands, performers, elaborate floats conveying various celebrities and giant balloons shaped like cartoon characters.
Beginning in the mid-20th century and perhaps even earlier, the president of the United States has “pardoned” one or two Thanksgiving turkeys each year, sparing the birds from slaughter and sending them to a farm for retirement. A number of U.S. governors also perform the annual turkey pardoning ritual.

The menu was based on ground beef, cheese & beans combinations and you also got a miniature bag of Fritos with your meal, because in Mexico, of course, everyone loves Fritos.     - See more at:

Ren's Did You Know? - “Renwick Gymnasium”

Most alumni who remember “Renwick Gymnasium” will associate the name with a different building and site than the original built in 1899–1900 during the tenure of President Ferguson. The confusion stems from the fact that the Renwick name fell out of use early in the building’s history, and when a larger facility, originally built to house the Student Army Training Corps in 1918, was converted to use as a gymnasium in 1919 and dubbed the “Big Gym,” the original Renwick Gymnasium became the “Little Gym.” In 1930, in order to make room for the construction of Bridges Auditorium, it was moved to a site north of its larger partner. In 1950, when Memorial Gymnasium was completed east of Smiley (where Rains Center now stands), the two earlier wooden gyms were joined, re-christened William Renwick Gymnasium to preserve this important early College name, and dedicated to physical education for women. The 1899 structure was destroyed by fire in 1952.
The original Renwick Gymnasium contained “a bowling alley, chest weights, rings, bars, etc. for systematic exercise.” Outside were an improved track, baseball diamond and tennis courts. Its construction was funded by a $2,500 gift from Mrs. Helen Goodwin Renwick, Claremont; $1,600 raised by students; and the remainder contributed by the College. According to E. Wilson Lyon, Pomona’s teams responded to the new building with a series of highly successful football and track seasons. Architect Robert A.M. Stern has described its design as “South African Dutch Baroque cum Mission Style,” noting that in the context of Holmes and Pearsons halls, it suggested that the College had not yet established a consistent image.

National Cake Day - November 26 Image Credit:

                                               NATIONAL CAKE DAY

Today celebrates a dessert that you will find at almost everyone’s birthday party regardless if they are age 1 or over 100.  It is also very commonly the  dessert of choice at bridal showers, baby showers,  wedding receptions, anniversary parties, retirement celebrations, graduations and so many other get together’s and social events.  Often served with ice cream.  Cake is a dessert or snack favorite of millions of people across the nation, even if it is not part of a celebration.   November 26th celebrates cakes each year on National Cake Day.
It may be a bundt cake, cake roll, layer cake, sheet cake, yeast cake, sponge cake, butter cake, fruitcake, cheesecake or one of the many other kinds of cake and it may be made at home from scratch, made from a box mix or bakery/store bought, whichever way, a cake can be one, or a combination of,  thousands of flavors.
No one can know how many, as there are countless cake recipes, some of which are bread-like, some rich and elaborate and many are centuries old.
At one time considerable labor went into cake-making, today, baking equipment and directions have been simplified and making cakes can now be enjoyed by both, professional and amateur  alike.
Cakes typically contain a combination of flour, sugar, eggs and butter or oil, with some variety of liquid which may be milk or water, along with a leavening agent such as yeast or baking powder.  Flavorful ingredients are often added, for example; chopped nuts, fresh, candied or dried fruit, fruit purees or extracts.

 National Tie One on Day might confuse people with it’s name however it is not at all about going out, getting crazy and drinking to much while others are at home, working hard preparing for tomorrow’s big Thanksgiving Day meal.
National Tie One on Day celebrates the apron as well as the past generations of women who wore them and it was also created as a day to bring joy to the life of someone in need and celebrate the spirit of giving.
“Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.” Ellyn Anne Geisel
As part of National Tie One on Day, Buy an apron, bake something, tuck a note of encouragement in the pocket of the apron (or pin it on it), wrap the baked good in the apron and give it to someone in need on Thanksgiving Eve.
Happy National Tie One on Day!
