Coachella Valley MMJ Dispensary Map  »  Ron's Log
The Desert Sun has produced an accurate map of the legal medical marijuana dispensaries in the Coachella Valley; including both those that are open and those that will open soon. IOW, they left off the one that's going to be near Paul and Palm (at I-10) because that one won't open very soon. The blue markers are open dispensaries; gray ones are yet to open. ...

Marmol Talk  »  Ron's Log
I went to hear Leo Marmol speak at the art museum on the subject of preservation and its tangled web. The second half of the event had us scurrying over to the Architecture and Design Center - the Santa Fe Federal Savings and Loan building at Baristo and Palm Canyon. 98% of the attendees at the lecture drove those three blocks. Less than a handful of us walked. The stairs and the handrail are original. The glass wall was added behind the railing because the gaps were wider than current building codes permit. Meanwhile, ...

"Probable Cause"  »  Ron's Log
The Fair Political Practices Commission made a couple of findings of probable cause in the matter of Russell Betts. I've heard these findings misinterpreted by more than one person. You can read the PDF report here. First, they explain "probable cause." Please note, a finding of probable cause does not constitute a finding that a violation has actually occurred. The respondents are presumed to be innocent of any violation of the Political Reform Act unless a violation is proved in a subsequent proceeding. And then it goes on with two findings of probable cause:In the Matter of Russell Betts, 12/289: ...

BEquinox  »  Ron's Log
Burners organize regional burns in addition to the big mama on the Black Rock Desert. Last weekend the Los Angeles regional burners organized BEquinox at the Joshua Tree Lake Campground which is 4 or 5 miles north of highway 62, a bit east of the town of Joshua Tree. It had all the essentials of Burning Man except for the size. The population was capped at 999, because in San Bernardino County when you go over 999 you have to get a lot of permits. A lot of my fellow burners from Burner Buddies were there. Tickets were ...

Music For My Gang Posse  »  Ron's Log
Check it out; this is going to be my new sound system for my bike at Burning Man. Picture me and my posse roaming the playa while this thing booms out the soundtrack to "The Sound Of Music" and other appropriate gang posse tunes. Yes, we will have to avoid big sound camps and stick pretty close together so we can all hear it - but that's just how we roll. I'm looking for some nursery rhymes set to upbeat music for this. All music suggestions are welcome...but some may be scoffed at. Before anybody points it out, I will ...

Solar Eclipse Two Ways  »  Ron's Log
If you want to see the recording of the professional live-streaming of the recent solar eclipse, click here and then advance to about 1:44:00. BUT, if you want to see and hear how ordinary, non-TV professionals respond to the solar eclipse, you'll want to watch this video shot by Frank Jernigan in Norway. A GoPro would be about the least appropriate camera for a solar eclipse, IMO, but when he pans around to show you the crowd out there on the ice, don't they look just like penguins wearing puffy coats and toting cameras?! Very fun ...
