Well, it’s nice of Fresh & Easy (the one on Mountain Avenue in Upland) to begin carrying the local paper, even if it is in a rack for a marginally better-known rag.
While hiking above Claremont on Potato Mountain, Marc Campos saw the top of a water tower below him in which Potato is spelled Potatoe — and someone, he’s guessing grammatically minded hikers, crossed out the E with a “no” symbol made of rocks.
Of course, it’s also possible the rocks were placed there by birds. You know, quail.
I had always heard smog originated in L.A. and blew east, but while driving in an industrial park recently I suddenly wondered if smog may actually be headquartered on 9th Street in Rancho Cucamonga. Around the corner of the building were the words “Smog Check,” so that answers that. By the way, I like California Smog’s cheerful colors (and the fact that the flowers get plenty of oxygen and sunlight).
Seen on Mountain Avenue in Ontario, a health clinic has a burger stand as its neighbor. That certainly cuts down on the travel time for all concerned. Wonder how many clinic employees go next door on their lunch break for charbroiled beef?
By the way, you wouldn’t believe how many visits it took me (five, I think) to find a time when the light hit the north-facing building properly, an angle where the light pole wasn’t in the way and a moment when people weren’t standing outside making me self-conscious.
