As anyone who's lived here for more than 3 months knows, tamales in Los Angeles are as common as actors answering casting calls at Paramount Studios. You can't say you've eaten Mexican food in Los Angeles without eating a tamale. True Angeleno hipsters call it by it's Spanish name: "tamal", which itself came from Nahuatl, the Aztec language that also gave us such delicious foods as cocoa, tomato and avocado, all part of the Mexican and Latino food scene in Los Angeles. But, you don't have to…Continue

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?)
