Hiking to the Hollywood sign?

We did it a few years ago, but don't know if it's still possible; does anyone know?

Also, we've lost the directions we used last time; started at a stable in Beachwood Canyon. Does anyone have directions?

TIA

Cahuenga Valley?

A bit early century modern, rather than mid, but: Does anyone know what part of LA/Hollywood was referred to about 100 years ago as the Cahuenga Valley? Anyone have a reference?
TIA

Preserving Wonder Bread

I wonder how many of us realize just how MCM wonder bread is. It's owned by Hostess, and will be "demolished" unless someone steps in to take it over.

Need ride to Modcom meeting June 18

We'd like to go to the meeting in Chatsworth, but don't have a car, and public transportation that far out is iffy for a late night return.

AMOCA exhibit

We were at the AMOCA exhibit in Pomona, as part of the Millard sheets tour. It's closing March 31, but very much worth visiting if at all possible.
