    These big dusty green ones grow like weeds around here. https://www.finegardening.com/article/10-outstanding-succulents

    You can't be middle class in LA unless you have succulents.
  4. During our current safe at home phase, a huge portion of locals have taken to buying starters of succulents, selling succulents, growing succulents for fun and profit. I guess that they are not challenging to grow. As you drive around, there are many yards sporting displays of full grown succulents. We have conquered the succulent gap. Other nations will be at our mercy!
  5. theclash, thanks for reminding me I have been remiss in not watching it. A friend played Wanda Williams in one of this year's episodes.
  6. I tended to confuse him with Euell Gibbons.
  7. The seventh episode of Perry Mason is amazing in both a good and a bad sense. This is what we have waited for. The episode is crammed with plot, character development, mystery, revelations, violence, vintage autos, etc. Really, it's too much. But Matthew Rhys as Mason is seriously coming into his own. Tatiana Maslany actually shows some range as Sister Alice. We get Perry's back story. We get Sister Alice's back story. We get plots, gumshoe work, financial chicanery, killings, drug addiction, a casket scene worthy of Chester Himes with Lili Taylor stage managing a miracle. We get a return to the morgue. We get a return to the brothel. We get the return of Hamilton Burger (who seems to be quite the sophisticate but with major political ambitions). We get corruption a la Chinatown. And most significantly we get some Mason courtroom antics worthy of the character. Now, we are talking. Unfortunately, now that we are hitting our stride, there's only one episode remaining.
  8. Cameron Diaz is selling wine. https://www.wine.com/list/wine/avaline/7155-124231?s=psca_google_campaign_Top+Wines+-+Alpha&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=cameron diaz wine&utm_campaign=Top+Wines+-+Alpha&showpromo=true&promo=PSNEW&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7L3o7Pb66gIV5B6tBh3KKAngEAAYASAAEgKVwfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds#

    NBA 2019-2020

    I am amazed the NBA is back in its bubble format. The teams seem to really be trying like in real games in front of fans, even digital ones. And in these times, the league, the teams and the coaches seem pretty woke. It is reassuring. Go ahead, play all the auto commercials, the beer commercials and insurance commercials you want. Sports are somewhat back. Obviously, this is an asterisk season.
  12. You folks have it easy. We have to do a Bowfinger to get fed. https://www.theonion.com/l-a-designates-open-air-dining-areas-along-101-freeway-1844531667
  13. Sondra Locke's role in the film seemed to be the high point of her career.
  14. Now that is a suggestion I can get behind! How is it with the tequila version?
