A hummingbird visited me for Christmas.
We have a feeder just outside the kitchen window. I sat my iPhone on the window frame and hit record. Within about a minute, as you can see in the video, what I believe is an Allen's hummingbird came and got some homemade nectar.
Earlier this year, we had two hummingbird nests and four babies in my Leimert Park…Continue

At a meeting a few months ago, residents somewhat seriously suggested they would lie down in front of the space shuttle to keep it from going through Leimert Park. Some one said the streets were already messed up (to put in new sewers and for resurfacing projects) and another said there was already too much construction (to bring the nearly billion dollar light rail to our neighborhood).
But it sounds like we are on the right path to get to see history and to save as many trees as…Continue

Let me introduce to you one of the treasures of the Los Angeles community and part of the family of Leimert Park: Verbs.
This youngster has made quite an underground impact with his rhymes and his eclectic music tastes. I love his honest and often humorous takes on life in LA, taking public transportation, new found feelings of commitment and the challenges of growing up today, which he lays over smooth beats and sometimes a live band.
But I've gotten…Continue
