By alan handwerger, published on Jul 21, 2009

The Food Stinks and the Portions Are Too Small

La Forecast High Temp ... 39F???

By D. E. Carson, published on May 21, 2009

...very loud.  When it was over, I was a little unnerved, but got over it.  It reminded me that I prefer tornadoes over earthquakes.

As for "The Big One", I can only say this:  given the tendency of earthquakes to wreak havoc everywhere, the safest place to be when The Big One hits is France.  Y'all might want to consider making your reservations now, I hear France isn't a very big place and might have trouble accomodating a sudden influx of 12-20 million Southern Californians.

After living here for over 10 years, I'm thoroughly convinced that Los Angeles is no where near... (more)

...to be voted in through universal suffrage!

Well known to Britons for being their favourite second home choice in France, but who actually knows much about the actual place? Did you know for example that Brittany is a former independent Celtic kingdom and duchy that was incorporated into France in 1532?
