Is there a map available online of the boundaries of the cities around Los Angeles? For example, the map would show the streets where places like Culver City, Bell, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, etc. begin and end. Bonus points if the map shows neighborhoods within LA proper. Double bonus points if it includes light rail and commuter rail. [more inside]

What is the large red sculpture in LA? I was watching Ruthless People
and noticed the final ransom drop took place in front of a large metal sculpture. To my mind, this sculpture looks like the Flamingo sculpture in Chicago. The scene can't have been filmed in Chicago, so what's the name of this similar sculpture in LA?

A dear friend from overseas is visiting me on her first trip to L.A... but unfortunately I'm going through a bit of a rough patch health-wise, and so can't help her sightsee as much as I'd like. She's expressed interest in hopping on one of the Hollywood bus tours while I get some rest over the weekend, but I have no idea which ones are best and which ones to avoid. Any former tourists to my fair city have any suggestions?

What do you know about countertop dishwashers?
What should *I* know about them before purchasing one?
Where can I find a selection (or heck, even 1) in stock at a brick'n'mortar here in Los Angeles?
and, barring a local retailer, Which countertop dishwasher should I buy online? [more inside]

Any suggestions for a good food bank or food pantry in the north or west San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles? We're going to see lots of grapefruit and avocado from our trees this year, and I'd like to donate it to needy folks. Google is not a big help.

My fiance and I have been together for almost four years. She wants to get married in her home town, probably on the beach in La Jolla. I've never been married before, and neither has she, and I guess what I'm wondering is... What are some resources I can use to estimate the cost and planning necessary?

Help me plan a 3-day trip to Joshua Tree (CA).
Or alternatively, suggest another really cool natural area to check out in Southern California in late January.
I am in my cousin's wedding in the L.A. area and am coming with my girlfriend. We decided to take a few extra days--she's never been to California and I've only ever kept my visits to family time, usually in the OC area.
We're renting a car, so we'll have transportation. Is late January a good time to go? Do you have any recommendations for gear rental (doubt I'll be able to climb, unfortunately)? I have gear at home in Michigan, but I'd like to travel light.
If you have alternative suggestions--they can be around L.A.--I'd love to hear them.
