What part of town will you be staying in.
Best places in West LA near Hollywood (old established upscale one's) and a few on Ventura Blvd, in San Fernando Valley. One of them was where Robert Blake (Berretta) last entertained his late con artist wife. He beat that murder charge, just a few years ago.
Let me know, since LA is huge. Also, so many overated overpriced Hipster places, that are not that good, but they get big write up's.
Stay in touch.

You got this worked out LG

Nodded off early, so now up a 4 AM ... so nice reading your tender and insightfull message.

Plan to start a regular mornng light workout regime, will start this morning. Also re-focusing on a higher nutreant breakfast. Do not want to loose or gain weight.

******

Catching a few minutes of morning news with Robin Meade (HLN) and she in streaming clips of experts debating the sequence (shot/stabbed). Apparently this will not go away. It's becoming more clear, as to DR Horn making his best guess and failing to adequately qualify. It all happen so fast, then the decomposition. Dr Horn, in my humble opinion, failed.

As to this morning news, not looking for clips on this case. Catch up later on JA/TA. Wanted some real news of the last 24 hours. They are also staying way too long on this Gay Basketball player coming out. Same as to CNN.

Alamo, has prob read it...lol

Thes PPL hustlers use it all in their recruitment,
as do the myriad of most multi marketing schemes.

JA was approached out of the blue when she was working at
the luxury Ventana Resort in Big Sur, by some dude who first
asked her where she saw herself in five years. He told her her
she coukd retire in five years. Thus, the PPL entrapment started.

Little could anyone fanthom that this hustle, would result in an Age Old Tragedy once again played out on the Stage of Life.

La ,, still no response as to why she rented a vehicle 100 miles away from her residence. Do you think its a big coincidence that the same caliber gun stolen from grandparents house was used in the murder.

You are LE ,,,wouldnt that raise some red flags if you were the lead investigator.

LA,, why did she need the 5 gallon gas jugs. Do you have any suspicion that she might have considered burning down the house or burning evidence. Do you agree that she lied about returning a gas jug to wal mart.

I believe that Jodi went there to give him one more chance to pick her, that's why she didn't just kill him right away. She used sex to try and change his mind. I don't even think it had anything to do with his upcoming trip, she just wanted to be a part of his life and I think he told he,r one more time, that was not going to happen and she flipped out. She had just spent like 13 hours working him over, putting out all her best moves and it did't work the way she wanted it to.

Nice to hear from you again. Why no pic? R U taking some new one's?

Granted, JA no doubt used all of her pursuasion to convince him, but he had told her to leave before. They both could not stay away from one another You know how that goes when the sex is so damn good. Right, No 1 Grandma. She was not going to kill the love of her love, just because he told her that it was over for the tenth time. Too much for her to risk, she knew he would come back for more. Something real nasty happen in the last fifteen minutes and she snapped.

You are correct, in that it had nothing to do with Cancun. No telling what he said or did in the last fifteen. Granted, no excuse, but mitigating factors. Are you seeing now as more of a Manslaughter. It is plausable that she was telling the truth about dropping the camera and he lashed out. He may have come out of the shower, mad as hell and talking real bad. He was not go to kill her though, but would have roughed her up. The dude had just paid $400 for that camera and was taking it to Cancun to take pics of some babes. No disrespect meant.

She was the type who could burn down a guys house when he was not at home. Prob did lie about not returning the gas cans. She's sick in her own way, after getting her brains scrambled. As to the testimony of the Wal Mart employee, who went through all of the records. I believe that she did not find a return, but doubt that the Wal-Mart records are that trustworthy. We have all been in Wal Marts and they are busy operation. Anyway, Mr Martine a made his point. He has over proved his case, but still not adequately explained the Why...nor overcome what could have occurred in the last fifteen minutes. Remember that Reasonable Doubt always tilts in favor to the accused and premeditation has not been proved in my humble opinion.

It comes down much more to the last fifteen, since she was in the house for some 13 hours. If the Sex Tapes (and texts) did not exist, maybe a First Degree verdict, but even then it's a stretch.

Would you settle for a 2nd degree conviction, max of 22 years, less time served. JA would like the Manslaughter, with about 15 year cap, less time served

That was good and it would have started to "Tingle" if I had not read it about five years ago and it was coming from a babe. You have a penchant for plagerizing.

Did you go to one of those schools like Dr DM, old stale material.
You as a clinician, no doubt, would at least have had the perceptive powers to figure out that JA could read.

Jodi Arias trial update: Defense, prosecutor want more witnesses

Posted: 12:38 PM
Last Updated: 22 minutes ago

• By: abc15.com staff

PHOENIX - The final details of the Jodi Arias trial were sorted out on Tuesday, as both sides requested additional witnesses take the stand before closing arguments.

Arias' defense team has asked for Dr. Robert Geffner, Ph.D. as a surrebuttal witness to impeach the state’s rebuttal expert, Dr. Janeen DeMarte, according to Maricopa County Attorney's Office spokesman Jerry Cobb.

Arias’ attorney Jennifer Willmott wrote,“Dr. Geffner is necessary and critical to Ms. Arias’ defense after this court allowed the state to present new evidence during rebuttal via its witness Dr. Janeen DeMarte.”

In the notice filed by the defense team on Saturday, Willmott requested Geffner also be used to discredit the testimony of medical examiner Dr. Kevin Horn, M.D., regarding brain injury and incapacitation.

“Dr. Geffner is a neuropsychologist,” added Willmott.

According to legal analyst Jeffrey Evan Gold, prosecutor Juan Martinez is also asking that another witness be alowed to testify -- Jill Hayes, Ph.D., of New Orleans. Hayes is an expert in psychological and neuropsychological functioning.

The Arias trial resumes Wednesday morning in Phoenix.

Thank's for the update, No 1 Granny. You do good work. So, both sides want more wits, the jury may not get this case until next week.

This Judge should have been running her court Five days a week and promptly starting at 9 AM...just caught one of the HLN's talking heads, mentioning that many are complaining about short work week and her not taking adeguate control of her court... but then went went into some nonsense about how the judge is burdened with too many moving parts and scheduling practices...whatever in the hell that means.

Need an updated pic, make it interesting...lol
