Sorry, I just couldn't find the Los Angeles-area Mastodon hunting reserve.

The mastodons would hide in the lemon groves.

Oh, I guess all the lemon groves are gone now. (When I moved to the area in 1983, there were still a few lemon groves in the area. I think all of them are gone now, unless there's still one above 16th.)

There are a few groves left. One is on 20th near mountain, a few blocks from where we live. Monks run it nowadays.

Thai Buddhist monks, I believe. The ones that run the Zen retreat at the top of Mt. Baldy.

LA to the Inland Empire every day, oy. There are better ways to hurt myself, like a sledehammer to my skull. It is faster too.

Yes, but the sledghammer's effects eventually fade. Commuting does not.

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
