Five Minute Friday: IMAGINE

Five Minute Friday
Five Minute Friday, the prompt is Imagine, which refers to the first virtual reality.  Our brain has this special app, where you picture something and then you make it come true, once you know what it's supposed to look like.

My imagination is sort of spotty - for instance, I cannot imagine what the furniture will look like and then place it around that way.  No, I have to try all the different configurations and then pick the one I like.  Which takes a lot more time than if my imagining app worked right.

I do frequently imagine food that I like, and can even smell it!

Mae West, Rancher

A little info about Mae West, landowner:

She was a prominent Valleywood rancher and landowner. A quick check of the gossip columns finds mentions of her running a Valley ranch for trotting horses in 1935, and in 1938 she bought fifty acres in El Otono Estates, which was either in today's Canoga Park, West Hills or Woodland Hills. That year, the city planning commission turned down Mae's request to open a diner on the triangle of land formed by Van Nuys Boulevard, Chandler Boulevard and Circle Drive. She still owned corner in 1951. ...
• • "The San Fernando Valley: America's Suburb," researched and written by Kevin Roderick, was first published in 2001.

Five Minute Friday - COMFORT

Five Minute Friday

Comfort FOOD is the first thought when reading "comfort."  Food is the turn-to run-to to-do.  If you're happy and celebrating or sad and desiccating, food is the perfect accompaniment.

Cheese of course, then bready things like noodles in soup or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Rye toast with butter and apricot jam.

I mean it makes you feel better if your feelings are hurt or you have to wait for some outcome and the nervous jitters got you paralyzed.  Getcherself a snack!
