There is no such thing as cancer.

My mother was born in Boyle Heights on December 25, 1934 and she passed on December 26, 2003 at a hospice in Montrose, California. Her official cause of death was breast cancer. Personally I believe that she died of emotional illness. My mom died of the same thing that tried to kill me until I prayed and meditated it all out of me. My mom’s brother Sal had the same thing and it was manifested as alcoholism.

Royalty Free Photographs of Boyle Heights, California

The Wednesday before Christmas I took a little trip to the Boyle Heights City Hall in East Los Angeles, California. Actually I was at my former dental office across the street. So while I was waiting for my dental records and x-rays I took a few snap shots with my iPhone. This is the end of my three year sojourn in the Eastern suburbs of L.A. County. I am taking my x-rays and going back to the Westside where I belong. You can take these royalty free stock shots and use them anyway you are able to. These are my Christmas gift to the universe.

Located directly across the street from the Boyle Heights City Hall is the Los Angeles Police Department Hollenbeck Station:

Wet Christmas

It is raining on Christmas Day 2021 in West Los Angeles and it feels great. From now on every Christmas Day I will be dreaming of a wet Christmas, just like 2021. With Omicron rumbling, and airlines slumbering, may all of your Christmas’s be wet.

Leaving East Los Angeles

When my mom was five years-old she left East Los Angeles and moved with her family to the North San Fernando Valley community known as Sunland-Tujunga, California. At that time Tujunga was known as a haven for asthmatics. My mom’s brother had asthma. Moving to Tujunga cured my uncle Sal of his asthma. Uncle Sal was one of the most famous alcoholics in our family prior to my arrival. Sal was the same age as my dad and they were close friends.

Dead Drunk

Amazingly, Sal drank hard until he was seventy-nine years old. Then, five days after my dad died of a heart attack, Sal dropped dead in his front yard.
