I love L.A.! - 04/24/14

A belated Happy Easter to everyone.  I spent the holiday in Los Angeles.  What a beautiful place!  While there I visited the FOX Studios.  You want to talk about impressive!  Check out the picture of the entrance I attached to this blog.

The second picture is of a sign on one of the buildings at FOX promoting an upcoming television show on the network.  If you've never seen "24" starring Kiefer Sutherland, you're missing out.  It's non-stop action!

Sort of like the traffic in L.A.  You better be on your toes making your way around the city.  No matter what time of day, there's a chance you'll run into heavy traffic.

That being said, as Randy Newman once sung in a song, "I love L.A."  You should check it out if you've never been there.  And one last word to the wise, you'll need way more than "24" hours to enjoy all Los Angeles has to offer.

HYDROGEN CARS

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Two cars going on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show don't use a drop of gas. Toyota and Honda are both showing pollution-free hydrogen-powered rides. The Toyota Mirai goes on sale in the U.S. and Europe next year. Honda isn't as far along. Its fuel-cell concept car, the FCV, should reach showrooms in 2016. The fuel-cells use hydrogen to generate electricity that powers the car. The only byproduct is water. But both cars need a fill-up from the handful of gas stations nationwide that have liquid hydrogen available. The L-A Auto Show opens to the public tomorrow.

NEW HOSPITAL GOWN

DETROIT (AP) -- There's something new in hospital coverage -- but we're not talking health insurance. A new hospital gown helps to cover your bottom line. Instead of a drafty, open back, the Model G gown is more like a wraparound robe. The gown was developed by the Henry Ford Innovation Institute at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. After a couple years of testing, the new gown is going into production. Thirty-five-thousand have been ordered for the Ford Health System. The Model G name is a tribute to auto pioneer Henry Ford and his Model T car.

BURRITO THIEF SENTENCED

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Two hot burritos could cost a Utah man years in the cooler. A judge has sentenced Billy Goree to up to five years in prison, for stealing two burritos from a gas station. The judge says he was uncomfortable sending a man to prison for shoplifting a meal. But Goree has a long history of arrests. The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports a parole board will decide his release date.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER DRUGS

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- They're fire extinguishers that won't do much good in a fire. Authorities in Louisiana report finding nearly 16 pounds of heroin hidden inside two fire extinguishers. East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies made the discovery on a commercial bus, with the help of a drug-sniffing dog. Juan Vasquez, of McAllen, Texas, was busted on a count of possession with intent to distribute.
