  1. Just so’s you know, the Weidmans are our long-time neighbors here (right down the block), in “Hermon” — a place many people (including the L.A. Times of Orange County) — mistake as being within Highland Park, because we share a ZIP code, courtesy of the U.S. Govt.

    Don’t get me wrong — we love our neighbor HP, but it just doesn’t exist east of the Arroyo Seco Parkway.
