Happy New Year’s Eve!
I hope 2013 was as good to you as it was to me. Here’s to a beautiful 2014! Please remember, everyone, use the resources available to you to avoid drinking and driving. DUIs in Los Angeles down run you about $15,000, and it doesn’t take much to crest the .08 BAC. Stay safe and keep […]
Punishable By Fine
While waiting for the subway after work this evening, I heard a version of the following announcement being called through the station’s PA system: Attention riders: Smoking, drinking and eating on Metro buses and trains is punishable by a $250 fine. Wait, what? Smoking is being put into the same category of punishment as eating […]
Merry Belated Christmas!
I hope you are having a beautiful holiday season! For me personally, it’s hard to get in the holiday season. I’m originally from Milwaukee, and my family, by and large, still lives in the Midwest.

Rainbow over DTLA
Last one to find the pot of gold is a rotten egg!
It is only 9:30 am…
…and this dude cracks open a Budweiser and chugs it on the bus. I see another guy at a stop sipping a Colt 45. I’m starting to think I’m doing it wrong by starting my day with a smoothie and black tea!
Tamale Fest at Olvera Street – 12/15/2013
Sunday was one of those beautiful days that make a gal grateful to live in Southern California. It was about 80 degrees, yet didn’t have the muggy heat of the summer months. Perfect for a bike ride and some Mexican food! My friends, Patty and Joe, and I rode our bikes to Olvera Street for […]
Life Springs Forth From the Cracks of the Broken Sidewalk
It wasn’t too long ago when I first started seeing the wispy palm leaves poking through the cracks of the sidewalk in front of the Chevron station by my apartment. Now it has grown into a real, live palm tree. I have to duck when I walk past it. I’m curious how long the Chevron […]
