Apple U-Pick Orchards Near Los Angeles
 

For the 2012 apple pick season there’s a few options for those looking to pick their own apples.

CBS LA has a good guide, which is useful. I have expanded on it a bit, with some images and updated info on the various orchards.

It advisable you call before making the trip, and to at least have two or more possibilities. Many of the orchards do not keep their websites updated as they are short staffed.

Also, keep in mind that as you drive to these farms you will notice additional farms, please share those with us so we can add them to the posting. Helping these farmers to sell their crops helps them stick around and grow.

 

Now is the easy picking time for those small kids who can’t reach the high branches. Come on up!

Tomorrow, Sep 23, 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM
290 North Hill Avenue, Pasadena, CA

But if you find yourself in Southern California (specifically, Pasadena) on Sunday, you can attend the opening of Deezmaker, the West Coast’s first 3D printer retail store, set to open on September 23, 2012 at 2pm. That will bring the grand total of 3D printer retail stores in America (and possibly the world) to two.

The Deezmaker store is in prime SoCal geek territory, near CalTech, JPL, and Pasadena City College.

We are proud to announce that September 23rd, 2012 will be our “Grand Opening” day for the first 3D printer store in Los Angeles, California.

Click here for details

Everyone is invited to the “Grand Opening” party of Los Angele’s first walk in 3D printer store (and hackerspace) by Deezmaker.

We started out with our very successful Bukobot 3D printer and are now opening a place where you can come in and see them in action!

The store will have a showcase of 3D printers of all kinds (Bukobot, Makerbot, ORDbot, Prusa Mendel and the Wallace), 3D printing services, an educational space for classes on 3D printing and technology, and we will also be a member driven hackerspace that will give access to shop tools like 3D printers, CNC routers, lathes, laser cutters (coming soon) and more.

Come enjoy a cool day of celebration with us and hang out with us nerds, hackers, 3D printer geeks (and some normal people too) and have some food and drinks with other cool entertaining stuff.

Everyone that comes will get a free 3D printed object…and maybe other cool stuff too!

We are also going to try to make get a webcam setup on Google+ Hangout for those that can’t make it because of the distance.

NASA Invites Californians to Participate in Endeavour Flyover

WASHINGTON — NASA invites Californians to participate in space shuttle Endeavour’s historic flyover of the state Friday, Sept. 21.

The orbiter, atop its 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA), is scheduled to fly over northern California and a large area of the Los Angeles basin beginning at about 8:15 a.m. PDT, one hour later than originally planned. NASA, the California Science Center, and the Federal Aviation Administration delayed the start of the flight to increase the probability that fog over the San Francisco area will dissipate before the flyover.

During the four-and-a-half hour flight, social media users are encouraged to share their Endeavour sightings using the hashtags #spottheshuttle and #OV105, Endeavour’s vehicle designation.

Members of the public are encouraged to share their photos of the SCA and Endeavour on NASA’s Flickr group at:

https://www.flickr.com/groups/spaceshuttleendeavour

For official NASA images of the SCA and Endeavour, see the NASA HQ Photography Flickr account at:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/nasahqphoto

At 11 a.m. EDT (8 a.m. PDT), NASA Television will air the departure of Endeavour from Edwards Air Force Base as it begins its California flyover:

https://www.nasa.gov/ntv

The SCA and Endeavour will salute NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center and the Edwards Air Force Base area after takeoff with a low flyby northbound to Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Any time after 9:30 a.m. PDT, watch for Endeavour from viewing locations that include the Bay Area Discovery Museum, Chabot Space and Science Center, the California State Capitol, Exploratorium, Lawrence Hall of Science and Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Next the aircraft will travel south, making a pass over NASA’s Ames Research Center and Vandenberg Air Force Base before heading into the Los Angeles area.

Any time after 11:30 a.m., watch for flyovers of Endeavour passing regional landmarks such as its future home at the California Science Center, Columbia Memorial Space Center in Downey, Disneyland, The Getty Center, Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles City Hall, the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, Malibu Beach, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, the Queen Mary, Universal Studios and Venice Beach, among others.

Finally, the SCA and Endeavour will land about 12:45 p.m., at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) for an arrival ceremony before Endeavour is taken off the 747. The orbiter will be transported to the California Science Center next month.

The exact timing and path of the ferry flight will depend on weather conditions and operational constraints. Some planned flyovers or stopovers could be delayed or canceled.
