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.

Taking a bit of a break from the homeless and unemployment issues for a moment. A few places in Los Angeles which are traditions where one can eat

Los Angeles has many places to eat where the food is great but the history may be just as big of a draw or factor.

One day I took my two boys out.  The day started with one goal ... French Dip sandwiches at Phillipes. Two lamb sandwiches, double dipped, one roast beef. Graham and I split so we each had one half of each. Potato salad, cole slaw, a jar of mustard to bring home, cheesecake, the house lemonade, a nine cent cup of house coffee, crumb cake. It was a great lunch at a very historical place.

Both of these french dip sandwich places go back to 1908. I do not know which was first. Phillipe's is a landmark in Los Angeles.  Phillipe may be the first according to the story of how the first french dip sandwich was an accident that happened there and became a requested item.
