Picture Sundays: Superbowl Edition

treshombres-669x333 It’s the time of year when my in-box fills with misguided attempts to get me to blog about Superbowl snacks such as a bag of chocolate covered pretzels that looked like–there’s no nice way to say this–a sack of humanure. In response I’m posting, for the second year in a row, the gatefold of the ZZ Top album Tres Hombres. No snack stadium could possible out-compete this Texas sized combo platter. What are you up to today? Watching the game? Preparing for the next arctic vortex/drought? Reading homesteading blogs? Constructing a lacto-fermented snack stadium?

Picture Sundays: A High School Bike Rack in Los Angeles Circa 1937

Behold the very full bike rack at Marshall High School, which is close to where we live in Los Angeles. It looks like a train station in Amsterdam. Like the photo of airplane factory workers I posted last week, this photo is a reminder of how our streets have changed in the post WWII era. Make those streets safe once again for kids to walk and bike and we could really put a dent in obesity, diabetes and heart disease rates.
