Are you gonna cruise the Miracle Mile? – Billy Joel, It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me (Glass Houses, 1980) Long before the Piano Man referenced L.A.’s Miracle Mile in a song, this stretch of Wilshire Boulevard between Fairfax and La Brea Avenues was just an idea in the mind of Los Angeles developer A.W. Ross. In the early 1920s Ross turned 18 acres of empty land west of downtown into a bustling commercial district. The automobile, not the pedestrian, would shape the Miracle Mile. Ross mandated that the building facades along Wilshire be engineered so drivers could see everything through... Read More
Our Governator approved a measure on Friday banning the use of cell phone while driving in California. The measure will take effect on July 1st, 2008. "The simple fact is that it is really dangerous to talk on a cell phone and drive at the same time," Schwarzenegger said. "It's very important for people to know ... stop using the cell phone right now, because you are putting people at risk." The fine will be $20 bucks if you're caught for the 1st time asking your wife what's for the dinner while driving back home from work, and $50 the second time when you will be ordering from Pizza Hut when...

Los Angeles is full of hustle, bustle and flux. Everything is constantly changing or re-inventing itself to keep up with the latest trends or to stay on top of the perverbial "heap". Although, I am the first to rush out and experience the hip new hotspots, its a welcome relief to have staples in the everyday routine that you can depend on to always come through with consistency. "Who's on Third", a quaint cafe nestled in between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills at 8369 W. 3rd Street is such an establishment. Boasting open doors since 1989, "Who's.." has become a kind of hidden treasure to the... Read More

I have often heard the phrase "People don't come from Los Angeles, people come to Los Angeles". (Check out that Jen Aniston film "Rumor Has It" if you don't believe me). I am one of the many migrators who has made the cross-country trip to the place where dreams come true. Two friends and I quit our fabulous jobs in St. Louis, Missouri,packed up a couple compact vehicles, signed a lease on an overpriced, un-airconditioned apartment in West Hollywood and as they say, the rest is history!!!! Then three weeks went by..... While blogging on myspace has led the folk back home to believe I am leading... Read More

At the intersection of Prairie St. and 120th in Hawthorne City, California, volunteers for The Western Museum of Aviation are preparing for takeoff. The museum is headed towards Torrance’s Flite Park, where countless aeronautic models and drawing planes will once again color empty walls. A few that are currently being packed into cardboard boxes include a Northrop World War II single-engine seaplane built in 1940 and a Wright GR-1820-G205 jet aircraft engine. The move comes at a time when rents are rising for the city, and in a world where non-profit organizations like The Western Museum... Read More
The majority of the restaurants and stores of Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica were closed yesterday night due to an electrical fire that lead to a power outage yesterday at 5pm. This incident apparently caused by the excessive heat of the last days and the high power-usage blew two underground vaults. Manhole covers flew up in the air and 15 feet high flames could be seen coming out of them. Power should be restored in the whole area within 24 hours. Read More
