sweetsTouring Los Angeles, California:  City of Angels

Los Angeles, California is the county seat of Los Angeles County with an estimated population of 3,819,951 as of 2003.  The origins of Los Angeles date back to a Spanish settlement that was called "Reina de los Angeles" or "Queen of the Angels."


An explorer named Gasper de Portola established missions in Northern California in 1769, but early settlers had difficulties with poor harbors, isolation and a lack of water in the area.  During the mid-1800s, the town became a rough area of violence between Mexicans and Anglos.  When the Southern Pacific rail line was complete in 1872, Los Angeles saw an improvement in development and economy. 


With industries such as cattle, automobiles, citrus, oil and movies, Los Angeles experienced several growth spurts that eventually led to it being the second largest city in the United States.


Hollywood in Los Angeles


Probably one of the most well-known aspects of Los Angeles is its district of Hollywood.  Hollywood is located northwest of the downtown area and is center of the movie industry. Though much of the film industry has spread into surrounding areas such as Westside and Burbank, Hollywood is still the heart of movie creation, where effects, lighting, props and editing take place through various companies.


Los Angeles Ball Teams


Los Angeles is home to several well-known ball teams:  Lakers (NBA), Dodgers (NL), Kings (NHL), Clippers (NBA), Galaxy (Major League Soccer), Sparks (WNBA) and Avengers (Arena Football).


Visit the Los Angeles Zoo


The Los Angeles Zoo (http://www.lazoo.org) has exciting animals such as snakes, birds, goats, elephants, camels, bobcats, bears, alpacas, porcupines, rhinoceros and many more!  There are also fragrant botanical gardens to brighten the day.  The zoo has much to offer for educational tours or just plain fun for the family.


See Art from around the World


For art fans, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) (http://www.lacma.org/) has more than 150,000 pieces from all over the world.  Its collection is often considered to be the most comprehensive in the western United States.  There is a variety of American, Islamic, Latin American and Southeast Asian works at the museum - art for all tastes!  Other historic sites in Los Angeles include the Getty center, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Museum of Tolerance and the Autry Museum of Western Heritage.


Los Angeles also offers several historic adventures where tourists can learn about the history and cultural diversion of the city.  The regions with historic metro adventures include downtown Los Angeles, Broadway Corridor, Canoga Park, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, San Pedro, original Farmers Market and Wilshire.

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
