Ok so I'll admit I'll be happy when Von's is finally reopened, but until then the project has become my personal hell. As a person that doesn't get home from work sometimes until 5am the noise has become out of control. The work is supposed to wait until 7am but no....their day starts around 5am. The incessant beeping of the trucks, the yelling of the workers, the damn food truck honking for 20 min. I'm fed up. By 11am you barely hear a sound but from 7-11 it's horrible. The jackhammering has… Continue
What's up CityLifers? Yesterday's 108 degrees of heat, was felt by everyone in the LB. Today should be no different, according to the Associated Press. The article says that it will be hot as hell today, but temperatures will be lower than it was on Monday.
I just wanted to give you a heads-up for today.
"Another day of searing heat was on tap for California Tuesday, but temperatures were expected to begin heading downward. A blistering fall heat wave broke…Continue
It's hotter than hell today and in need of some cooling off! Where to find the ice in a Mojito, Margarita, or other mixed magic? Anyone have any good suggestions on where to drink the heat away this afternoon?

Trash day is once a week and once a week, I drag out the recycle bin, trash bin and bin with yard cuttings or trimmings but not always. The trash bin usually only has one trash bag and my wife and I were not sure why it was so little. Don't get me wrong, it is not an issue but we were just wondering.
After a few minutes we had come up with the plausible answer. We were still putting out the same "trash" we always have but it was being separated and we now have a 75 gallon composting… Continue

Random is good sometimes, but then other times it gets you in a little trouble girl... THIS time though random was good as LBPP randomly ended up at the wrap up video shoot of local band Free Moral Agents new single called "Little Trouble Girl", which is an awesome Sonic Youth cover from the Washing Machine album. For those that don't know Free Moral Agents is the brainchild of Ikey Owens from Mars Volta, until he… Continue

While searching for a picture on my cell phone, I realized that there are many in there that I have not shared or only shared via Twitpic and not everyone may have seen it. Then again, not everybody has Twitter.
I was going to just post them into the blog post directly but figured a Flickr Set would be easier and there is no "membership" needed to view them. I do not always share these because I usually have my actual camera with me but it should not matter what camera is used. A… Continue

Living in Long Beach or near it, you know that it will be and has been very warm lately. It is not easy for the garden to deal with it. Luckily, I had already put up "posts" and hung burlap from them to help with some shade. I went out yesterday and hung the burlap back up and the plants are doing much better today.
Like people, plants need to stay hydrated to survive. I went through and soaked all plants through and hope they will be fine but… Continue

I went on a tour with fellow Ninth District neighbors. Real cool experience. Here are some photos I wanted to share with City Lifers. These shots were taken on a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S750. If you can leave feedback. Fasho.
