A little more information

The two main activities in my life: Helping the hungry in the late hours of the night and helping guitar players sound better one amp at a time.

I always try to remember that in order to do good one has to take action and actually do something.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I have watched the city and Southern California change for well over half a century.

Will these photos have any more impact if I add any of my own words?

Go ahead and count them; five police cars. Just a regular day. You can only see the lights going on one car due to the speed of the camera but all had lights going.

Another video on Andy Bales - the head of Union Rescue Mission

I am not generally thought of as a person with strong feelings toward religion. I will listen to any views or thoughts on religion even though they are not a strong part of my own life. Perhaps as I get older things will change.

I do have respect for the beliefs of others and always try to learn what I might be able to learn from others. Many of the missions which help the homeless are deeply rooted in religion. I suppose that just as there is a divide of Church and State in some aspects of law I too try to keep religion and my help to those less fortunate divided. In the video below there are some points on religion so I just wanted to take a moment to express some of my own thoughts so people that know me and think they understand me do not become confused. The video below has many terrific points.



Rev. Andy Bales | Stories from Skid Row from Union Rescue Mission on Vimeo.

The Union Rescue Mission along with the other missions help the homeless in many ways. I do not have their resources or a staff but do what I can do. Sometimes people help such as Mr. Win and Mr. Kim who operate produce areas in the Central Market in downtown Los Angeles. They have both given me a lot of help in the procurement of healthy things I can pass out at night to folks on the street that stay there when there is no space at one of the missions or shelters.

In these photos above you will see two pounds for $1.00 or three pounds for $1.00. I am able to get between five and ten pounds for $1.00 from some of these vendors who have helped me directly.
