#SpotTheShuttle InMotion Hosting’s Marketing Field Trip

We’re honored to have space shuttle Endeavour making it’s final stay here in Los Angeles. Here at our west coast office situated overlooking the airport, it’s just a walk to see the shuttle situated at one of it’s stops on it’s 12 mile trip to the LA museum. Our building is situated fairly close to the shuttle’s route, which means the commute into our office, as experienced by a number of us here, was spotty with road closure preparations. A small price to pay to feel the awesome presence in person – and “awesome” is a much overused word, but the only one that really suits seeing the shuttle up close.

To recap with the whole journey, the shuttle carrier aircraft took off just over two weeks ago on September 17th, piggy-backing Endeavour on it’s last flight across the United States. Since 1981, space shuttles have been landing at Edwards Air Force Base and have been transported across America to their takeoff site at Kennedy Space Center. Very few people have had the privilege to come close to a shuttle, nor has there been any effort to make an extra show of low flying pass-overs. The focus is merely to get the job done.

Endeavour’s final journey however, was a real mission to say goodbye. It was to spend two days traveling across America with low-flying tours at below 1500ft from the space coast, New Orleans, a stop-over in Houston, and then Edward’s Air Force Base before coming to Los Angeles and beginning two weeks of detaching from the aircraft carrier and processing.

The project is huge, but only to match the majesty of this feat of combined human efforts in engineering. If you follow the hashtag #SpotTheShuttle on Twitter and on Google Plus, you’ll see the incredible montage of people’s snapshots documenting Endeavour’s journey. Endeavour will be assembled in an upright launch position and rebuilt with her rocket boosters in position as testament to her memory.

Foodie Friday: Pizza Party!

Welcome to another edition of InMotion Hosting LA’s Foodie Fridays!  So it’s looking like we’ve been falling off the wagon a bit on trying to stick to healthier options.  But today was an exception because we gave the lunch choice to one of our team members who just celebrated her birthday yesterday.  Her option was for Compari’s Trattoria/Pizzeria, located just one exit south of us on the 405 freeway.

It’s hard to sticking to healthy options at an Italian restaurant.  Unless you just eat a salad, every other option is pretty carb-heavy or smothered with cheese.  So your best bet to be somewhat health-conscious is PORTION CONTROL! Lol, at least that’s what I say to myself.

This place got an above average rating from our team being given 3.9 stars.  This is a pretty decent Italian place to try out.  We highly recommend the Eggplant Parmigiana, whether it’s the sandwich or the plate.  The breaded eggplant itself was very well seasoned!  As far as the pizza goes, it’s pretty much slightly above average.

But you gotta remember, we’re getting delivery, so the majority of the hot foods we get delivered would most likely be much better fresh from the kitchen.  Regardless, I’d definitely give this place another shot and try out one of their specialty dishes, such as the Lobster Ravioli, yum!

Foodie Friday: Chicken ‘n Shuttles…

Today was quite an eventful and adventurous day for us here at the Los Angeles InMotion office.  First off, we were able to witness history in the making as the Space Shuttle Endeavour made its rounds all over Los Angeles for it’s final journey before retirement, which has been all over the news today.

Though the picture below does not do any justice (everyone in the office only had camera phones on hand), we actually had a great view of the shuttle piggy-backing a jumbo jet, and being escorted by a couple smaller jets.  Quite an amazing sight to see!

But here’s a better pic…

In other news, we decided to be adventurous with our lunch option today and tried out Dinah’s Family Restaurant down the street from our office.  A few people were a bit hesitant to try it out because of a couple people’s opinions, but I say you gotta judge for yourself.

This is place is known for their fried chicken, so fried chicken’s what I got.

Dinah's Fried Chicken

As far as their chicken goes, I can honestly say I’ve had better.  It was a little dry, and the batter was slightly above average.  However, their side dished were pretty good.  I really liked their mashed potatoes and gravy, and their mac and cheese was nice and creamy, though it needed a little salt.

But the star of my meal today was their Banana Cream Pie.  It was amazing!  I’d definitely go back to try out all their other homemade pies!

Dinah's Banana Cream Pie

Other high rated items from Dinah’s was their BBQ Chicken, Fried Fish Fillets, and the Special Club Sandwich.

Dinah's BBQ Chicken

Overall, the office gave Dinah’s Family Restaurant a 3.75 star rating.  One IMH team member quoted “all pretty standard stuff here, nothing amazing, but solid.”  I’d have to agree, with the exception of their amazing pies!

#IMHhangout | Do Mobile Devices Really Increase Productivity?

Click this Image to Circle us and join our hangout! Wednesdays 2pm-3pm PST Western Time.

Our weekly webmasters live Q+A is a broadcast via Google Hangouts supported with a live twitter chat stream #IMHhangout.

With the talk of the release of the new iPhone 5, we decided to make our topic ‘Do Mobile Devices Really Increase Productivity’. We hope that our audience of web pros, gadget geeks and those that postulate working on the run will share with us their experience working while away.

Questions to follow a round of introductions:

  1. What mobile devices do you own? #iPhone #iPad #netbook
  2. What form of work do you do? #Webmasters, #Designers #Sysadmin
  3. Do you use your device for work or personal organization?
  4. Lets see which apps you use for each group: #personal #office
    1. PicSay for Androids, LogMeIn.com for remote desktop, Host CPanel iPhone/Android App
  5. How many hours daily do you spend on your mobile device? #texting #sharing
  6. Who or what is really doing the driving?
    1. I threw this sophomoric question in for debate!

So! Whether you’re a traditionalist who prefers doing things in person or keeping work to a focused time-frame rather than jumping to every alert that comes in, here’s an opportunity to find out if those that are really ‘connected online’ fare any better at productivity.

The event will go live both on Twitter using the #IMHhangout Hashtag and on Google. So you can lurk without jumping into the hangout if you’re too shy. We do want you to showcase your tech savvy reviews of mobile gadgets, to help the rest of us decide what we really want. Please interact using tweetchat.com here, and we’ll keep an eye on the live twitter stream to mention your name, and find out what products you root for.

Foodie Friday: InMotion Welcomes Sam To The West Coast Systems Team

This past week, the LA InMotion office welcomed Sam, who transferred across the country from the Virginia Beach InMotion systems team.  And since he’s the “new” guy in this office, he had the honors of choosing this week’s Foodie Friday lunch.

Being new to the area, he asked the team for some suggestions.  So a safe choice that everyone in the office liked was good ol’ Mendocino Farms.

Sam & His Korean Short Rib Sandwich

This time around, I tried out one their new Fall seasonal sandwiches, which was the Korean Short Rib Sandwich (plus bacon!).  Sam also had the same sandwich (minus the bacon).

Korean Short Rib Sandwich & Jeff's Homemade Cookie

We both agreed that this sandwich was excellent!  The short rib meat was tender and the sesame chili glaze gave the meat a great sweet and slightly spicy flavor.  In addition, the cucumber-carrot kimchee, pickled red onions, and Asian pear relish were all very complimentary to the sandwich’s overall flavor!

Modern Tuna Melt on Gluten Free Bread & Squash Soup

The majority of the office also gave their lunches an above average rating, making this week’s total rating 4 stars.

Juliana & Her Chicken MBT

Other highly recommended items from Mendocino Farms were the Singaporean Dosa Wrap (which is another Fall seasonal item), the Sophisticated Chicken Salad, and the Modern Tuna Melt.

Singaporean Dosa Wrap

So as I’ve said before, Mendocino Farms is an excellent choice for fresh, gourmet sandwiches and salads.  Oh, and their soups and side salads are excellent too!
