  1. My hearts just breaking for the folks in Colorado, and those suffering with the heat and floods. Lord, have mercy! Love those flags side-by-side! Have a fabulous week-end!

    Not sure why it wouldn’t let me comment – asking me to open a different script.

  2. Not sure how I ran across your page. But my name is William Morrozoff and I live in NC; my grandfather was from the california area and met my grandmother and married here. He died when my dad was young and we no nothing of His family. His name Was Ivan Alexander and actually spelled his name “morozoff”. We were told his parents died in the 1906 quake. Were most of the Russian immigrants associated with your church.
    Just trying to put together a gap in our family history. He did serve in WWI but records were destroyed by fire.according to my dad.
    thanks for listening

  3. Loved your list!!! I heard about this idea ten years ago when I was about to turn sixty, but didn’t complete it. I’m so inspired by your list and the number of items you’ve completed. Congratulations!!

  4. Hello, I was trying to remember the date in 1968 when I went to the Coconut Grove at the Ambassador for dinner before the prom and saw the Righteous Brothers. The combination coconut grove, righteous brothers and 1968 led me to several historical connections however your happywonderer.wordpress.com pretty much answered my questions.
    Thanks

  5. Hi Ellen, I randomly stumbled across your blog and noticed your posts about Montebello High School. I actually graduated from there in 2001 and was unaware of how much history it possesses. I especially loved looking at your old photos and seeing the changes made from then and now. Thanks for posting!

    • Hi Jaynita, Your welcome. Glad you enjoyed some history from MHS. Next weekend I’m meeting up with several classmates from the class of 1968.

  6. Ellen, I was looking for recipes and came across your site. I was more astonished, happy to see the book from which the recipe lapsha came from. The SF Molikan church cookbook! I remember as a kid going to that church, I remember eating the food that came out of the kitchen from when that cookbook was made. I remember my grandfather passing out a copy to each of my aunts and my mother. Of course they have all gotten lost to history and some use. I was wondering if I can get myself a copy of it? Thank you so much for the nice surprise.

    • Hi Jesse, I don’t know where you could find a copy of the SF Molokan Cookbook. Sorry I can’t be more help.

  7. Ellen, I have a PDF copy SF Molokan Cookbook, I just downloaded it recently and would share if you would want all 271 pages.
    I also have another cookbook we purchased in Montebello in 1964. I am trying to find out more about this recipe:
    “Molokan Favorites”

    UNITED MOLOKAN CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION LADIES AUXILIARY
    1963
    SALANKA #2 page 74
    3 lbs. Lamb shoulder, cut up
    1 onion sliced
    ½ tsp. salt
    Pepper to taste
    1 qt. Sauerkraut (homemade)

    Wash lamb, and put in a 4 qt. Pot.
    Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Add
    4 c. boiling water, continue cooking
    for another ½ hour. Add 1 qt. sauer-
    kraut (homemade) or 1 large can of sauer-

    cabbage. Cook 1 hour. Serves six.
    We have always used short ribs instead of lamb.

    • Hello Duncan, I have the San Francisco Cookbook but not the one you bought in Montebello. I have never had Salanka but I’m intrigued by the recipe with short ribs or lamb. Thanks so much for sharing it with me.
