The San Fernando Mission

We’re finally getting back to doing tourist stuff around southern California, so today we decided to visit the Mission San Fernando Rey de España.  It’s located pretty close to us; we took Iggy and Jett so they could also get out of the house and smell the, um, well, not roses. Also, Bob Hope’s family […]

Los Feliz and Mulholland Drive

On Presidents Day we decided to walk the dogs around Los Feliz, a neat little shopping area in LA, and then drive down Mulholland from the 101 to the 405. Of course, I took pictures… All with my iPhone. Translate

Volunteer day at Sunrise Elementary School

Our team at DIRECTV decided to do a volunteer day at Sunrise Elementary School. We packed up in cars and drove over; the school is on the edge of East LA. We had lunch, the principal told us about the history of the school, and then we broke up into teams of 4 to teach […]

3 schipperkes

Kat, a friend of Aviva’s and I, brought her schipperke, Dexter, over to play with Iggy and Jett.  I took some video on my Flip – here’s the result, slightly edited (just joining bits and pieces) in iMovie. Translate

5 pics with the new Hipstamatic release and Fashion pack

I grabbed the latest release of Hipstamatic Friday along with the free Fashion pack; yesterday I tried the combination out with four “art” shots and one fun pic; hope you enjoy them! As for the program, the latest Hipstamatic is a huge improvement – the old one would eventually stop working, requiring me to restart […]

The Toy District, Little Tokyo, and a red bud (pics)

Saturday, Aviva and I bundled up Iggy and Jett and drove to the Toy District in LA.  We had high hopes, and they were dashed – don’t waste your time going there, it’s just a bunch of small import shops selling cheap crap.  We did get to walk the dogs around, they liked that of […]

LACMA

Aviva saw that there was a potentially cool show up at LACMA, and we hadn’t been to that museum for an eternity, so we decided to leave Iggy and Jett home alone for a few hours and check it out.  Their mobile website is iPhone-compliant and asks you to save it as an “app” which […]

Shadow Ranch Park

Today was another gorgeous day in southern California so we decided to take the dogs to Shadow Ranch Park which is just down the street (after running a handful of errands). And of course I took pictures with my iPhone, so take a look, hope you enjoy them! Translate

Mission San Gabriel Archangel and Pasadena

Aviva and I decided to bundle up the pooches and be a tourist – we drove out to Mission San Gabriel Archangel.  Here’s the blurb on the Mission from the one page flier you get for the $5 admission fee: Founded in 1771, only two years after the discovery of the Sari Gabriel Valley, San […]

Iggy and Jett playing – 3 pics

Iggy and Jett play together all the time – if one has a toy the other simply must have it! So here are three pics from my real camera (a point-and-shoot Sony DSC-T10 Cyber-Shot) of the two of them struggling over an orange stuffed toy. Translate
