Make thick pancake batter-dough, I added kefir for its malty-tart effervescence, cook in a wok with a lid, 10 minutes from start to finish, & saves energy.

Pairs well with anything else you like.

I left the directions on if you want to go on your own, e.g. in January and the spring. At Christmas time, traffic in L.A. makes some of the freeways quite slow, so plan around traffic. Days after a rain are the best, the most clean air!

(‘Right to left’ does not count as a correct answer. Always look at the shadows, date (11/3), location (Eaton Canyon), and think where the sun is to guess compass directions from your viewpoint. Winds are named from their source/origin, not imagined destinations. :-))




I’ve been going to a great Climate Change lecture/interaction series at La Brea Tar Pits, organized by UCLA Institute of Environment and Sustainability (IoES) and L.A. County Natural History Museum. Last night we compared U.S and China, L.A. and Beijing.
I try to conserve energy and resources all the time, but still use plenty of water and ‘carbon,’ even with my 40 mpg stick-shift Fit. This series is not at all guilt-producing, but is still inspiring to have a global view (which is what I aim for, + a heavenly one!).

L.A.’s historical mammals are a lot like African savanna ones.
