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.

1100 fireproof rooms at popular prices! Million dollars? To upgrade 1100 rooms and the building? How much of this building is actually leased in this economy? The price per square foot is a bit lower than one of those porta-sheds one finds at Lowe's or Lumber City.

I plan to spend a lot of time here in 2010.

There are a number of great missions and shelters in the Los Angeles area. I have looked into a number of them. This particular mission, the Union Rescue Mission strikes me as perhaps the most organized with the most aggressive staff when it comes to my perception regarding the resolve of the staff to help the homeless and hungry.

I intend to continue to spend most of my time in the field working with people one on one. Hopefully I can arrange my time between the street and URM where I can extend the outreach program of URM.

Here is a cool video done by Channel 7 ABC the other day.
