Finding a Way Home After the Phone Battery Dies

Smartphones are the Swiss Army knives of green commuting.  With a smartphone, a commuter can find out when the next bus comes using the Metro app.  Google Maps will generate the best route for bikers, walkers or metro riders.  Ride sharing apps like Lyft and Uber will bring a driver to your location to give […]

Gratitude

Thanksgiving is a holiday viewed in many different ways by Americans.  A quick perusing through social media this morning shows this.  A day off work.  Extra time on the couch to watch football and the parade.  Enjoying a decadent meal.  Black Friday discounts.  Dreaded time with family that doesn’t share the same political beliefs. For […]

Halloween and Dia de los Muertos Weekend: Part Two

Last Saturday, I attended La Cita’s Dia de los Muertos party, art show, and birthday celebration of my friend, Alicia. What a great time! Local artists were on hand painting faces, as well as showing off their creations. The crowd was great, and fun times had by all. Check out the good times we had.

Halloween and Dia de los Muertos Weekend: Part one

Halloween weekend is great.  I love putting on costumes or face paint and having fun.  This year, Halloween landed on a Friday with Dia de Los Muertos celebrations throughout the weekend.  Los Angeles does it right.

LA Kings Stanley Cup Victory Parade

Los Angeles has been in a state of celebration since the Kings won the Stanley Cup on Friday night.  I’m not big into sports, but what’s good for LA is good for me.  It’s hard not to get swept up in the excitement, especially because the victory parade went a block from my work during […]

Stanley Cup Parade and Road Closures – Monday, 6/16/2014

Good news: the Los Angeles Kings have won the Stanley Cup!  Not only is an LA team the best in all the land, but we can finally stop seeing our Facebook news feeds littered with hockey posts (oh wait, the NBA finals are still going on, along with the World Cup?). On Monday, LA welcomes […]

Viva La Bolt Bus

Over Memorial Day weekend, I went to Las Vegas with a group of friends. We did Vegas on a shoestring budget, especially when it came to our transportation options. I never heard of Bolt Bus until I was invited to join my friends for the weekend. It is a Greyhound service that connects nearby major […]
