The Great Classified Ad Cloud

By Nelson Pellew

So, this is the future: browsing online classifieds. The funny thing about browsing through online classified ads, particularly if you omit the personal ads, is the sheer selection of what people, presumably as sane and lucid as you and me, will offer up for trade, ten pence, or barter. Indeed, you will find a host of dreadful items you would be better off buying brand new at your local Dollar Store -- no thank you, I don't think I will be opting for your used toilet bowl scrubber.

The city, as Solon once quipped in my imagination, is the center of life. Perhaps, then, what defines the parameters of what people will solicit for is the city in which they are soliciting. I imagine you would find a more practical range of actually useful items in the online edition of the Boise Gazette or some such Midwestern publication. It seems perfectly reasonable that you would and could find advertisements for used tractors or fattened livestock -- you know, things of practical use.

But what happens in the major cities of America? Well, what you tend to find in a city like Los Angeles, on the other hand, would make a shy, bald Buddhist reflect and ponder mass murder. Or at least break out in a wild guffaw. I submit while the listing for puppies for sale seems relatively reasonable, there is no mention of whether or not they are live puppies, much less stuffed or crafted from Crisco.

Listen carefully and you just might hear a curious kind of pinging going on between those who post classified ads and those of use who read them, even as jest. On a very metaphysical level, we are exchanging ideas, hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Moreover, we are sharing our likes, dislikes, political views, and moral guideposts. One cannot read "Kazak translator needed" and not be genuinely intrigued by the kind of person who needs this kind of service.

The swirling mass of thwarted consciousness that is the metropolitan classified ad cloud is an ebbing, flowing beast with a million eyes and half as many hopes. Yes, the spelling tends to be off and grammar and syntax are nothing more than desperate hopes, but there is a real reaching out occurring via the online classified. Gird your loins, pepper your expectations, and enjoy. - 30247

Quickly Find a Fine Family Dentist

By Ricardo Jordan

Those who have moved in recent times to Pasadena, Southern California, might find themselves thinking about getting a new dentist. There are those who want a family dentist, or at least a kids dentist to take care of the children's dental health. There are also people who are interested in complicated treatments, such as replacements of teeth with implants and bridges. Finally, some are interested in cosmetic dentistry providers.

The region known as Los Angeles and Pasadena are two cities in the greater metropolitan area of Southern California. Multiple counties, cities and towns make up this vibrant community. Tens of thousands of dentists operate here. A recent arrival should limit his or her search to the immediate area of Pasadena, to make it more manageable.

How does one conduct a search for a good dentist in Pasadena? This is a daunting task but can be simplified down to a few helpful guidelines. A good dental care worker has good skills as evidenced by patient testimony, runs a well-oiled office with good staff, and shows good manners in treating patients. After all, good bedside manners are a mark of the best dentists.

For example, what if the patient being treated is overly perturbed the noise of a drill? The dentist can cover the ears with headphones and play relaxation-inducing music. Another example, what if the patient is repulsed by the acrid odors of antiseptics? The dentist should cover the smell using more pleasant agents like candles or incense.

Successfully locating a dentist in Pasadena is by no means a simple thing to do, but the task can be mitigated by research. Your situation as a newcomer to Pasadena is such that you have moved from somewhere else or you have been taken off the family dental plan. With this in mind, there are some concrete courses of action you can take.

To begin, at large hospitals that do teaching of dental students, there usually is a dental department. A possibility is USC which graduates dentists but also maintains a practice for patients. The faculty there may be able to direct you to a practitioner able to treat your conditions. You can also query your former dentist if he or she knows a specialist. Conversely, ask your specialists whether they know generalists. Maximize your information gathering.

On the list next, drop a line to your previous dental care provider and ask if there are people personally known by him or her living in Pasadena or thereabouts. THe huge size of the Southern California region ensures that dentists will know of someone to contact here.

A final possibility is to check whether your friends working in the health fields might know of a dentist in Southern California. Don't limit yourself to asking dentists, but also ask your friends who are in medical school, who are physicians, who work at pharmacies or pharmaceutical firms, so forth.

The worst would be to wait until the last moment when the dental issues become an emergency. Look for an economical dental practitioner now. - 30247

The LA Doldrums

By Myer Thompson

Yes, this is Los Angeles. Pardon me while I stifle a yawn and cough the smog out of my lungs. Writing about the City of Angels is as old hat as another Hollywood edition of VANITY FAIR. Do we really care? Should we really care? I suppose if you've ever seen a movie that helped you understand your life even a fraction better than you used to, you care about Hollywood on some level. We've been programmed to care about the city.

Other than a brief, titillating look at celebrity miscues and embarrassments, what good can come from writing about Los Angeles? I suppose you can divorce the industry from the city and try to delve into the cultural impact and significance of Surf City, but you'd be jumping into dangerously shallow waters. Yes, there is the Getty -- but so what? Rodeo Drive -- sure. But who cares?

LA, shallow? Yeah, I know that's old hat. The cliche that Los Angeles is shallow becomes more and more entrenched with each Hollywood wannabe I meet. Is New York the fashion capital of the world? No -- that's London or Paris. Sorry. Is Chicago the blue-collar mecca of America? Sorry -- that honor goes to Pittsburgh or Cleveland. The only thing going for LA is the fact so many aspiring wannabes flock to it. You can't get paid to be an extra on a Hollywood film if you live in Lubbock, Texas.

There are some genuine attractions in LA, like Griffith Park and it's famous Observatory. There is indeed the Getty and MOCA, but after that you're looking for natural phenomena. When you peel back the layers and layers of highways and smog, you may find a gorgeous beach or two -- but my oh my what price nature?

When in Los Angeles, eat at Joe's. If you happen to be an aficionado of boutique hotels Los Angeles is the place to be. Only San Francisco can compare to the number of designer hotels and motels given to the great goddess of Tourism. You can find one that fits your budget and puts in the middle of whatever action you happen - 30247

Los Angeles Florist Protects Your Flower Arrangements From Viruses

By Peter Flowers

Bacteria and viruses can attack fresh cut flowers as they would attack any one of us. Mixed flowers in a vase pass viruses to each other. Just like we pass viruses or the flu to each other.

Leaves from the flower that are touching water will rut. Vases that do not have their water changed on a regular basis will have a slimy substance around the stem of the flower. That slimy substance is a bacteria that will not let the flower breath. All this because the flower shop was not careful selecting healthy flowers for your arrangement.

Change the water in your vase as often as you can. Don't wait more than three days to change the water in your vase and if you feel a slimy substance, remember that is bacteria and you want to change the water right away! Avoid your flowers having any contact with fruit. Fruit is always releasing gases and those gases will kill your flowers.

Now this story hurts. I buy this beautiful flower arrangement for Christmas and they die the very next day. What happen was I left them by a bowl of fruit and the fruit gave my flowers a virus that killed them the next day. I learn this later from my florist.

This is how you avoid having your flowers killed by a virus. Wash the vase with some bleach. Bleach kills any bacteria that are clinging to the vase. Add acids to the water right away. A table spoon of lemon juice or vinegar, couple a drops of Listerine will keep the water fresh and bacteria free. Your flower will last much longer.

I always ask the same question to three or more florist. I have learned so much about the floral business because I would take the time ask my florist questions. Talk with a local florist about any concerns you may have. Florist are very knowledgeable about flowers and that can really help you avoid making big mistakes with your flower arrangements. - 30247

Splitting the Difference: Biker Life in LA

By Myer Thompson

Despite what you hear, there are only two problems with living in Los Angeles: the traffic and the traffic. Yeah, it's a cliche by now, but the truth is the truth. You can't expect to go anywhere in the City of Angels and not be in your car for at least 45 minutes. If you're lucky and it's 3 AM on a Sunday, you might be looking at 30 minutes. No matter what you do, if it's not within walking distance -- which nothing is in LA -- you're starting your engine and hitting the road.

Think traffic isn't that big a deal? If you think you have it all figured out -- you're wrong. Your harebrained traffic predictors are worthless. Even your own, hard-won experience with the patchwork of highway and overpasses will not prepare you. Just because you managed to speed down the 405 one day, doesn't mean you'll have the privilege the next.

No, as long as you're stuck in a car or truck -- you'll be stuck in a car or truck. The solution, short of relocating, is getting off four wheels and getting on two. It's a daunting prospect, to be sure. Except for the foolhardy and brazenly brash, few people willingly decide to have a turn on a motorcycle in LA County.

You can't argue with mobility. The main appeal of getting around on two wheels instead of four is mobility. In California you can split lanes. Though highly controversial, this means a motorcycle can cut between two cars. Lanes no longer matter for the Californian biker. This means inching you way up to the head of the line at any stop light and zooming into and out of traffic.

The advantages are appealing, but the risks are significant. In fact, motorcycle fatalities have soared over the last decade to constitute 14% of all roadway deaths, despite the fact that motorcycles account for less than 1% of vehicle miles traveled. This is an alarming statistic, and one that should prompt any life-loving rider to have a Los Angeles motorcycle accident attorney on speed dial at all times. - 30247
