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, […]

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 […]
