Take A Deep Breath

I know, taking a deep breath seems dangerous during these times, but it’s precisely what we all need to do…six feet apart of course. Covid days are here and will be with us for awhile, but they will end. Take a deep breath and visualize the day when it will be all okay. In the meantime, take little sips of knowledge to help take away the anxiety of the situation. Somebody recently asked me if it was okay to eat food that was not prepared by them…they wanted an In and Out burger, but feared it might be loaded with virus sauce. So far there are no recorded cases of food transmission of covid…eating live bats in Wuhan not advisable still:

So, there you have it. One less thing to worry about. Bon appetite…veggie style encouraged.

I Will Be More Than A Little Late

If you had a sense that traffic seems to have gotten worse then your sense makes sense. The metro, while well used, has done nothing to make traffic lighter. Well, it’s October and it’s 80 degrees and people in less favorable environs have been watching the Dodgers playing under those sunny skies. Three percent of those people have packed their cars and are headed here. You’ll see them on the freeway next to you soon:

LA River: The Trip of a Lifetime

Here is the route and the general information:

The river program runs during daylight hours until Labor Day (September 2) and anyone can access the river free of charge for a Class I river rapids ride that will take about 2 ½ hours.

Only non-motorized, steerable boats – like kayaks and canoes – are permitted on the river…no innertubes et al

The route:

LA River Open For Pleasure

Use at your own pleasure

 

The LA River opened today for kayakers and other river types and, well, that’s a pretty darn amazing thing. Just a few years ago folks who tried to use the river were cited/ticket/arrested – it was ugly. But common sense has prevailed. While what happened to the LA River is at best unconscionable, it is better to look forward than look back. Someday, soon, Angelenos will be able to head on down to the river and, and while respecting the natural and built environment, have some fun.  If you want to get baptized this summer then visit the good people at http://www.lariverexpeditions.com to arrange your dipping.
