1. Cool

I had an interview earlier this month in central California, Don't think the position was right for me though.

It looks like my daughter will be moving to California (Los Angeles) soon and she'll get a kick out of this map.

22. There are 3 stinky places in California

Two are on that map. The third is El Segundo, but that would be included in a map of LA area I suppose.

edit: no, Gilroy is not stinky!

23. El Segundo is for sure stinky!

It's not as bad as it used to be. Decades ago, Standard Oil used to use the cloudy days as cover for burning off waste products, and we always smelled them! They have gotten better...

I live next door in Manhattan Beach.




Um, Gilroy can too be stinky!

24. Gilroy smells like garlic, but isn't stinky

It's been years since I've driven through El Segundo, but what you describe was how I remember it. You always knew when you were passing through it on the freeway.

28. Well, they definitely nailed Orange County....

Spent thirty years there. Once had a guy actually say, "I don't know how anybody could be a Democrat." Then he looked at me kind of funny and said something about after that, I was probably one.

I didn't say anything. Hey, he was giving me a ride home and we were still 15 miles away.

30. Orange County is a tiny bit bluer now, my dear Wounded Bear...

They've even elected some Democrats! Remember B-1 Bob? He's gone, replaced by Hispanic women!


And I'd say you were smart, keeping your mouth shut back then...15 miles is way too far to walk.

31. Nice map!

I used to live somewhere between 'vegas traffic' and 'rocks' - I thought the desert was beautiful! I wish I had been able to travel around the state more when I lived out there - now I'm too poor to go back for a visit. Oh well, maybe one day.

33. I spent years living in Usually On Fire, Mts in Other Direction, and near Giant Stinky Lake...

Um... Yeah. As geography goes, that's about right.
