MOCA, The Grove and Buddha’s Belly

We dropped off the dog at a new dog sitter, and decided to kick around Hollywood and West Hollywood (for a change). First we drove down to MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art. We had to walk through the Pacific Design Center to get there; unfortunately the Design Center was closed. A view of the […]

Dinner at Chopan Kebab House

We really liked the two Afghan restaurants we tried in Chicago, so we went looking for some in LA. We didn’t find any initially, but Aviva turned one up near us call Chopan Kebab House, so we gave it a try. It is a hole in the wall from its looks – a natty restaurant […]

Added a “Ping this!” button to posts

I was invited into the beta program for ping.fm. They provide a service that give you one place to create microblog, status and blog posts which can be directed to any of a number of social networking sites. Since I’m a member of a number of social networking sites, and since I don’t have time […]

Visit to my new dentist

I went to my new dentist today; they call themselves Couture Smiles, and my dentist is Armen Terteryan. Paula did my cleaning – she was very nice, talked a lot, and really cleaned my teeth; reasonably painless, even for a late appointment (I’d been seven months since my last cleaning). No cavities, gums are fine, […]

Things to see and do in Los Angeles

I’ve decided to organize all the web related stuff we find useful on Los Angeles into one place on my web site. This will include pages on places we’ve been (including links to blog entries), as well as links to other sites with information we found useful on LA. Hopefully that will make it easier […]

Shopping in West Hollywood

Aviva found a store called Necromance in the Not For Tourists guide for LA; their claim to fame is selling taxidermy specimens, skulls, bones, x-rays, old medical instruments, and other things that are way off the wall. So, we headed out to West Hollywood and went to Necromance. They have two storefronts that are five […]

More fixes for the blog

I fixed Twitter Tools on Thursday, and now I’ve fixed the page menu on my blog. Turns out the theme I’m using was missing a couple CSS lines (I hate CSS almost as much as I hate JavaScript, but you have to use what you’ve got). I added these two lines to the Menu section […]
