full steam ahead

Radio ads you have to replay in your head

Driving down the LA freeway looking at the jacaranda, listening to K-Earth and boggling at the ads. Bank of the West giving away toasters to make the world a nicer place? Nowhere near as weird as the furniture shop whose jingle runs "the only way to get furniture cheaper is to import it yourself and you don't know how..."

Note to other tourists in LA. You can get into the Getty Centre any day, but for the Getty Villa you have to book a free ticket online in advance. So that's one for the *next* visit...
