More snippets from my miscellaneous folder that I’m cleaning out.

SNIPPET 1

Arguably, San Diego’s most upscale (i.e., expensive) mall is Fashion Valley. It’s so expensive that I don’t even look at it as I’m passing by on the freeway. However, recently I had occasion to be there at night after hours and found some floor art that I could not bring myself to walk on.

No one else would walk on it, either, everyone walking up to it, gazing for a few seconds, and then walking around it.

SNIPPET #2

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved long hallways and tunnels. Here’s a view at a hotel that I was at recently:

SNIPPET #3

At the same hotel as in SNIPPET #2 was this mirrored ball ceiling:

Oh the fun if all of those were disco balls (smile if you remember disco balls!). However, in each one of those mirrored balls is a selfie:

Those DO count as selfies, right?

SNIPPET #4

Ooh La La

Yes indeed! (But I have no idea what kind of a store that was!)

SNIPPET #6

In 2012, California’s 80,500 farms and ranches received $42.6 billion for their output, ranking the state #1 in cash farm receipts with 11.3 percent of the US total. Agricultural pests, then, are taken seriously. The following picture shows an agricultural pest control officer checking a control container on a citrus tree on private property. Let’s hope there’s nothing in it!

SNIPPET #7

It does no good to have wheels if you have no wheels.

SNIPPET #8

Let’s return to the upscale Fashion Valley mall (see SNIPPET #1). How upscale is it? Here is a video of one of their light benches:

Let’s stay at Fashion Valley exploring how upscale it is. Following is a video advertisement. What’s unique about this advertisement is that it’s a projection. The projector was mounted in the ceiling and projecting on the floor. I had no problem walking on this floor advertising.

SNIPPET #10

Lastly, still at Fashion Valley, following is a video of their beautiful (upscale) water fountain in the center of the mall. To me, water is a prime requirement defining upscale, but for too long Fashion Valley was missing water features. Heck, it was even hard to find a drinking fountain; probably the businesses that sell drinks vetoed the idea of having drinking fountains providing free water!

    That´s too much for me to bear witness.
    And I´m stuck in the middle of nowhere with my car long gone. You´re going to depress me if you keep up putting up those beautiful things. Or maybe one day I´ll just brake in at least lie in the bed for a few minutes before the police comes. Then I can go around and say how cool I am.
