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.

Winter Shelters - an update from Andy Bales of Union Rescue Mission

I have not posted much in the last week or so.  It has been a busy week for me as I had friends in from Nashville and had a show in Hollywood at Jimmy Kimmel Live last Wednesday and last Friday had a show at The Staples Center.  Lots of photos on flicker at http://www.flickr.com/photos/myles111us/sets/72157623457744430/ and I still have a lot more to upload.

Although there was activity on the music side of my life I still made a number of trips to skid row with my evening snacks.  Union Rescue Mission provides over 100,000 meals per month which is always impressive.  On my side of things so far in February I have given out 109 oatmeal bars, bananas, raisins and thanks to folks at the Central Market in Los Angeles was able to take 44 people to dinner for Chinese food at various times during the month.  I continue to receive contributions from many folks in the music industry and thank all of you.

If you click on the Winter Shelters title above you will be re-directed to Andy Bales URM info which I find interesting.  I find most of what the folks at URM do quite interesting, find their organizational skills second to none and when it comes to stretching a dollar, well ... there are not a lot of folks that can pull off what they do in any industry.

One shot below - no photo edit here ... the green lines are the laser testing at The Staples Center for the Brad Paisley concert last Friday night.
