Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


Cheez, perhaps you've never been to East L.A. Or Wilmington. For that matter,

A student at my duck class was telling me about a place a few blocks south of me in Long Beach where you can pick out a live animal, pay for it, and come back and pick it up, all butchered. Yikes! I'm too afraid to check it out.

No goats, I don't think, just chickens and ducks and rabbits.

I grew up in North Torrance, which was pretty Waspy at the time, and I remember every day walking to my Catholic school or to the church, past the one older house with no sidewalk. It was a shabby place and an Hispanic family rented it. They had a goat, and it freaked me out and intrigued me at the same time.

Picture the neighborhood from "Dick Van Dyke" or "Bewitched," with one dirt lot in the middle, with a goat and lots of barefoot children. They always seemed so happy.
