ANOTHER #losangeles fire? (Sepulveda Pass / Skirball area, not too far from the Getty).
We need some rain ASAP, but I don't think any is coming.
U.S. Politics, POTUS
I've said it over on the birdsite before and to my husband on a few occasions: business and finance media is doing some of the best reporting on 🍊 , and his possible ties to international money laundering.
To wit: Handelsblatt reporting that Deutsche Bank has been subpoenaed by Mueller.
Reuters and Bloomberg have also had some great reporting on this.
Watching KABC's coverage of the fires too. I keep yelling "GET THE FUCK OUT OF THERE" at my TV.
One reporter said that she got burned by an ember landing on her ear.
Standing thisclose to a wildfire being propelled by 50-70mph ember-carrying wind gusts seems like a bad idea even if you're trying to do a job.
A hazy, campfire scented morning in my part of #losangeles.
I'm several miles away from both fires, but the Santa Ana winds have brought the smoke into our neighborhood 😷.
I've watched #PumpRules since season 1, but I still don't know which Tom is Sandoval and which is Schwartz. 😂

They also have a Pacific Standard Time exhibit worth visiting "Circles and Circuits I: History and Art of the Chinese Caribbean Diaspora."
("Circles and Circuits II" is at the Chinese American Museum http://camla.org/current-exhibits/#circles-and-circuits-ii-contemporary-chinese-caribbean-art)
This is really a post about love and romance and whether search boxes work -- not about algorigthms.''
But it's still a reminder that sometimes emotion and "gut" feeling can be more valuable.

Also, if you're like me and realized you were missing out on some cultural understandings, Slate brings you "The Gringo's Guide to 'Coco'"
Saw "Coco" tonight. It was charming and had a major telenovela-ish twist.
If you cry easily, bring tissues. You'll need them for the last 30 minutes or so.
I kind of hope Blake Griffin retires from the NBA at the end of this season. Then we'll be treated to gems like this comedic power walk.
A look at Vietnamese-American communities and their food in Orange County (CA), San Jose, New Orleans and Houston.
