Yeninko of the Umlaut

As all of you know the basis of Science is the repeatability of experimentation. If, when I submerge a kitten in a barrel of water it drowns, and when you put a kitten in barrel of water in a barrel it drowns, and if Guy in France, puts a kitten in a barrel of water and it drowns, we can safely surmise that a barrel of water will rid us of the kitten menace.

But due to the information age we have a plethora of information at our fingertips. Why check to see if a store closes at 8pm when we can just check the internet, why see if cloudy skies will deliver rain, when will tell us, and why drown a cat in a barrel of water when we can just download a video showing that self same kitten?

Into this culture I was thrown with the following puzzlement; How do I remove pictures from my phone and get them to a computer. Certainly those who know me are surprised and even slightly embarrassed that I , a technofile of no little acumen would be stumped on such a trivial task, but truth be told, my ninja skilz are severely lacking in in the personal hand held device arena.

So there I was searching the internet to no avail! Neither Craigslist no Verizon's own site would lend any clue on how to proceed, when I fell back to Science! I would experiment. In the place that one traditionally put a phone number to send a text message, I would instead, painstakingly type my email address, and low and behold, the image you see below!

Culver CIty in the News

My small home town in the middle of Los Angeles made the front page of the LA Times and apparently it booming.

In recent years, dozens of galleries, design houses and architecture firms have moved in. Wine bars and upscale eateries -- many with alfresco dining -- are garnering raves, and more restaurants are in the works.
Though apparently after I left for college in enter a brief stage where it was a was wasteland?

But by the early 1990s the city had lost most of the military, aviation and entertainment jobs that had created a strong local economy, if not a scintillating social scene. Much of the city became blighted.
