First one…

First pumpkin pie of the season! 5.99 is such a huge deal. There is no better pie than Costco’s. Nice flaky crust, well cooked custard. And tonight is the first Marching Band tournament of the season.

Knitting cables

This is my first try with knitting cables. At first I tried to do it without a cable needle but it was difficult to cleanly pick up the loops with this fuzzy yarn and those little loops made by the missed strands just stand out too much. I don’t have an actual cable needle so I am using an extra...

Roy’s La Jolla

Mr A says he likes the idea of Roy’s more than the actual food but it’s still one of my favorites, in fact it was one my three (!) requested dinners on my birthday weekend. We sat at one of the high bar tables against the kitchen. The other dining room tables are often windy and cold under the air...

Lou and Mickeys (San Diego)

I love this place. I love the streetside tables under the Gaslamp sign and right across from the Convention Center. We are never disappointed with the food.

The Really Big One

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/07/20/the-really-big-one “Thanks to that work, we now know that the Pacific Northwest has experienced forty-one subduction-zone earthquakes in the past ten thousand years. If you divide ten thousand by forty-one, you get two hundred and forty-three, which is Cascadia’s recurrence interval: the average amount of time that elapses between earthquakes. That timespan is dangerous both because it is too long—long...

626 Night Market

In the northern boonies of LA, but outstanding food selections from 144 Asian food booths. Almost everything we had we loved. Noodles, chicken skewers, Buffalo chicken buns, mandu, lumpia, cupcakes in a jar. Pretty high food quality as would be expected from the 626 area code. Because let’s face it, Alhambra is LA’s REAL Chinatown. The primary cuisines we saw...
