    It poured rain in Los Angeles for most of Sunday.  It is now Monday and it is still raining.  This city does not do well in the rain.  Those of us who came here from places with actual weather are easily separated from the natives because for the most part, we are the ones who know...

    Let’s talk about Vests.  Maybe I am the only person that doesn’t get this, but what is the point of a Vest?  And more importantly, what the hell is the point of a warm winter jacket if its missing sleeves!  I don’t get it.
