-The GUARDIANS of
SUNLAND TUJUNGA
DESTRUCTION
















Flower and Di have been guarding my home for
three years while I was taking care of my
Mom in Noho, and don't call PETA, my son
and his Mother took care of them. Finally
after being back a few weeks,
the doggies have adjusted to my kitties

Vic Tanny [vid] & Sweety Pie, who by
the way were born in this ST home.

Destruction & RENEWAL ...















JME decimates the the innards of out
house in Sunland Tujunga, California. All the
inside walls were removed to redo the interior.
New design and new walls with insulation for sound.






















Being away from my Sunland Tujunga home for
over three years has brought about much neglect.

Below slow progress is being made with new steel
double glass windows we are doing ourselves.

This is one of the first steps toward restoration
and modernization of my small house up here at
the 1500 or so foot level of Los Angeles.











Just got broadband, even though I originally had
'dial-up' for over eight years, the last three years
of DSL in Noho was wonderful, while the last few
weeks of dial-up was just OK, you know what they
say, one for the money two for the show, or is it
once you've gone FAST you can never go back.

-
"THE PLAN(s)"




















Yes, this is the map of my little home
in Sunland Tujunga California, below is
a sketch map of what we are thinking of
to upgrade. As you can see we are opening up
the kitchen to the dining and living rooms
removing the wall heater (going HAVC)
and putting a work/eating area that goes
out to the others rooms from the kitchen,
making that GREAT ROOM thingy, that is
so "IN" now ("I'm In With The In Crowd")
Also moving the kitchen sink to match the
counter in the middle, and moving it away
from the side door making access easier,
and putting the left bedroom door next to
the side door rather than in the middle of
the kitchen, and redefining the closets of
the bedrooms. Along with all this re-do
and tiling of the bathroom.
AND WE JUST STARTED, more to come.














-Ralph Story's

Los Angeles...










^check out an article about Ralph Story^


RALPH STORY passed at 86

RALPH STORY was a great influence on my
writings here. I like talking ABOUT, and that
is what RALPH STORY did.
RALPH told us ABOUT things in Los Angeles.
RALPH STORY'S LOS ANGELES,
a TV News show about JUST WHAT YOU
WOULD IMAGINE, Los Angeles, Ca. USA.
For six years in the SIXTIES, thats' the1960's
-we saw the secrets of everyday L.A. that we never
knew about our city. Today, we all know Heull
Howser telling us similar items. But, loving Huell
none the less, RALPH STORY captured the young
hearts telling us long ago about the
likes of the BLACK DAHLIA showing the actual
murder spot on Pacific Coast Highway, which
one can still drive-by this day.
Click on his pic above to see an article from
10- years ago showing workings, and the

CBS article where he worked in L.A. starting

at KNX AM and contining later on
THEN knxt Channel 2 now KCBS-TV
.

-MONOLITH

IN NOHO















In the near distance stands this yet to be
completed monolith across from the Metro
Red Line Station in Noho. Is it a piece of
NOHO ART (see this clic) or just a sign
for the new HOWS MARKET ?

-ANTARCTICA WEATHER
IN NOHO
57 (fifty-seven) YEARS AGO !



North Hollywood and all of L.A. fell under
a freak Winter storm in February of 1949.

COMPARE PICS 1949 versus 2006 in Noho.
My Dad once gave Dr. Fishbeck of Ch 7 news
weather copies of pics which were aired,
I think it was the 1970's. (Henry Elovitz)

1949 ...................................2006


























First the front of the House
then the back and that is the same FENCE.

It WAS FEBRUARY 1949, just wanted
you all to coooool off a little.




VIC TANNY PICS

6 years there. He has lived with his sister Sweety Pie

-SUNLAND TUJUNGA EATS

Being hungry is one thing we like to take care of.
That early evening 'I do not want to cook' syndrom
takes hold, get the keys, let's go to JIMMY DEANS

Right at the same corner the 'little old lady' got the fine
for moving too slowly at Foothill & Woodward
on the
northwest corner seen here on this video pan first showing
the old kmart, where the drive-in was, then shows the
crosswalk the lady got fined and then JIMMY DEANS.
You can eat inside or outside or use the drive-thru.
Hamburgers, hot dogs (ask them to grill 'em)
malts, shakes, fries, onion rings...
our hometown hangout.



SUNLAND TUJUNGA

MYdaughter Jessica

was sixteen..............JESSICA JUST GOT MARRIED read on>
at Foothill Summitrose and Mt. Gleason.
The two shots show the corner where it sits
I have included a menu that might be out of date
but shows their delicious dinner items. I always
try to the PRIME RIB salad baked potato and
of course their special toasted garlic bread.
They have Specials daily that include seafood.

The Bar is one of Sunland Tujunga's favorite
wateringholes. Sports TV and lively chat fill the air.
...and don't forget the cheese toast.

-VALLEY PLAZA MEMORIES

Here is a remainder of Valley Plaza.
Radio Shack and Smart & Final occupy a building the I
say was an original inside mall. The Radio Shack area
where shops which you would enter right inside the
Thriftimart Market. As you walked in to the right was
a kiosk like shoe repair. There was also a Chef's
Chicken BBQ. Further north the other buildings
included DRUCKERS Kosher Deli, a Jewish Bakery
and the Thrifty Drug with a fountain at the back.
The market at Archwood was originally called
Mac Donald's Market with a Scotsman logo.






























(enlarge:click) THERE WAS AN 'AIRPORT' TOO!.

Sunland Tujunga & North Hollywood
are the City of Los Angeles,
California in the U.S.A.
















We also live in the County of Los Angeles
this is the evil maybe x-logo that has that
G-d reference, and other stuff of the devils.
The County has used for it decades, WHO KNEW?




We can always make fun of ourselves
as with the fake-logo for Kalifoana.
With this neighborhood blog about
these cities with unique
historys and lifestyles,
we will shed some humor
and truths concerning our
Los Angeles
