Silver Lakers and nearby folks are welcome to join Silver Lake Time Bank. Check out the About tab on Facebook. Here's one story of SLTB adventures from Lee Conger.
My Time Bank Story for today: Several weeks ago, when Katie from West Adams Time Bank bicycled over here to Silver Lake to help me with unspecified projects, I decided we should go harvest lemons from the un-monitored tree I spotted along the L.A. River several weeks prior. She and I walked and walked, bearing picker and bags, but I had us on the wrong stretch, so we never found the tree. Embarrassing. Recently I made a point of finding the tree and documenting its location. This morning, I saw Leonardo's request for lemons and was able to take him directly there. About 1/3 of the tree hangs over a fence; the fruit drops and rots. We began harvesting. And then the 'Time Bank Miracle' happened. When we offered lemons to passersby, they turned out to be the owners of the tree on the other side of the fence. They were delighted that the lemons would be used. They offered us grapefruit, too. They were interested to learn about the Time Bank and the Neighborhood Fruit Harvest Project and were happy to accept my offer to deliver them a bag of kumquats sometime soon. (Whose story is next?)

The parade takes to the streets on Sunday
This weekend, with Thanksgiving barely in the rear view mirror, Hollywood will gear up for Christmas. The 86th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade is taking to the streets this Sunday.
The parade starts at 5 p.m. right by the TCL Chinese Theatres, then the U-shaped route heads down Hollywood Boulevard, turns south on Vine, and then doubles back on Sunset Boulevard.
The parade, of course, means that certain parts of the neighborhood are going to become temporary no-parking zones to make room for the holiday cheer.
From 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday, Cherokee Avenue between Hollywood Boulevard and Selma Avenue will be closed for parade goings-on. But beyond street closures, there are plenty of parking restrictions that could affect Hollywood residents.
The following streets will be tow-away and no-stopping zones for periods between Saturday and Monday.
Tow-Away/No Stopping from midnight Saturday to 6 a.m. Monday
Tow-Away/No Stopping from 6 a.m. to midnight Sunday
Tow-Away/No Stopping from 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday
Tow-Away/No Stopping from 1 p.m. to midnight Sunday
There’s nothing old-fashioned about this Arlington Heights classic. The two-story Craftsman has beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, an imposing stone fireplace, wonderful wainscoting, and divine built-ins, but it also sports a renovated kitchen with fancy Carrara marble and a stainless steel appliances.
Large windows throughout (and a hearty dose of white paint) help keep the house bright.
Upstairs, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms await. (There’s another half bath downstairs.) One bedroom connects to a covered patio that overlooks the rear yard. The master bedroom has a serene en-suite bathroom with a clawfoot bath tub, dual sinks, and a marble vanity.
The nearly 2,000-square-foot house last sold in May for $775,500. It’s now listed for $1.149 million.
Hardwood floors, a decorative fireplace, and a grassy backyard
After selling seven months ago in April for $500,005, this adorable Spanish-style bungalow built in 1921 is returning to the market in Highland Park with a heftier price tag.
In that time, the two-bedroom, one-bathroom was flipped into a trendy little number with a remodeled kitchen and bathroom sporting pastel green cabinets, patterned tiles, and new appliances.
The home also holds a dining space, hardwood floors, and a decorative fireplace, and it offers some nice views of treetops and the mountains.
Measuring 1,269 square feet, the home comes with some nice outdoor space: There’s a front porch surrounded by new landscaping and a backyard with grass and trees. The 6,049-square-foot property is back with an asking price of $729,000.

Designed by the architecture firm of Patten & Wild
In honor of this week’s unseasonable heat wave, what say we take a virtual trip to Palm Desert to ogle this snazzy midcentury pool home that’s just come up for grabs?
Located a little northeast of the Living Desert Zoo and Botanical Gardens, the four-bedroom was designed in 1963 by local architecture firm Patten and Wild, whose portfolio also includes Rancho Mirage’s Morrison-Strassner Residence.
Measuring 3,218 square feet, it features a breezeblock entryway, slate and cork floors, soffit lighting, a split rock fireplace, original tiles, and the de rigeur sliding glass walls that lead out to the Pebble-tec swimming pool.
Per the listing, “a portion of the home can be closed and used as a separate or possible rental, fully equipped with its own kitchen, bath and enclosed private patio with yard and orchard.”
Last sold in 2005 for $1.2 million, the .29-acre property is now asking $1.495 million.
