Are Palm Trees Native to Southern California?
From the OC Almanac: Although the palm tree has come to be symbolic of Southern California, the only truly native palm is the California or Washington palm (Washingtonia filifera). All other varieties were originally imported. Southern California saw a huge surge in palm plantings during the 1920s and 1930s, many of which still line streets in Southern California today.

Tracing the development of Cirrus from its inception in 1970 to the 1990's, the video features many of the artists that worked at Cirrus over the years, including Lita Albuquerque, John Giegerich, Gronk, Lari Pittman, Edward Ruscha, and others. Commentary by master printer Francesco Siqueiros and Cirrus founder Jean Milant offers additional insight into this seminal Los Angeles art institution.

I am hopine you can achieve your goal of 50K. I inspired by you and want to be a successful writer like you. Wish you good luck qurbani [1] [1] /

I just used up more than the thirty-four plus minutes of my precious time for this little visual documentary. The extra time I took were for a few breaks. I would just rewind back to the last place I saw visually and continued. It was a pleasure to see the interior of the workshop and voices of the artist.
If you would like a rating: I would give it a ten of ten being the best.

Ed Ruscha also has some great intaglio prints at Crown Point Press in SF. I highly recommend checking them out. Here's a cool clip of him talking about making prints:

I wonder if i can convince Cirrus to give me a tour of the shop when I'm in LA later this month?
