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.

And I thought I had a busy week? I am a lightweight.

I thought I was busy?  Many of my friends think I am busy.  I am a lightweight.

Last week was the 6th annual Los Angeles Ampshow. 

There was a major press event at 65amps announcing their release of two new amplifiers. 

Friends and associates from all over the globe, from as far as Norway and Singapore, decended on Los Angeles for these events.  I was running at about 100 mph the entire week.  The folks at 65 Amps had been running at 200 mph for the last month.

Many of you saw my posts on the net on the events.  Busy few weeks.

As busy as I thought things were for me I sat down this morning and reflected on my week.  I then looked back on the week of my friends at Union Rescue Mission - http://www.urm.org/ 

I thought about the 113 degree heat last week which was the highest recorded heat in the history of Los Angeles since 1877 when statistics were first collected.  The people of URM pushing carts weighing 1500 pounds through the streets of skid row so they could pass out cold water bottles to the people on the street.   They do this anytime the temperture is above 85 degrees.  It was a hot week.  They were busy.  A lot.

113 degrees and the man is smiling?.....
