Mattilda-

If you have a stop over in LA, you are more than welcome to stay with us in North Hollywood. We are nocturnal people (I am at work in San Diego a lot, and Tomek is a night worker at a restaurant). We have a wonderful little two bedroom condo with a comfy couch and a big kitchen close to the subway.

Take Care,

Tony Cochran

Tony, thanks for the invite -- I'll be in LA in February, but will probably stay with my sister where there's an extra bedroom for me -- I look forward to seeing you then!

Love --
mattilda
