So Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye!
When (CV Weekly publisher/editor) Robin Goldsworthy first asked if I’d be interested in writing a weekly column, she was editor of the Crescenta Valley Sun, which at the time was owned by the Glendale NewsPress, which is owned by the Los Angeles Times, which is owned by … well, never [...]

L.A. Does the Shamrock Shake
One of the more entertaining benefits of living in Southern California is to experience our semi-frequent earthquakes and then watch the hilarious news coverage that ensues. Last Monday morning, for example, found our local high def doofuses in classic form.
As the ground shook at 6:25 a.m. on St. Patrick’s Day, many [...]

iDriving Our New Computer (Pt. 2)
Last weekend as I was making sure all of our assorted clocks, watches, coffee makers, appliances and cars had all “sprung forward,” I remembered that I hadn’t yet written Part 2 of my tale of technological troubles in driving the car we bought last summer. My bad.
To recap: Both of [...]

A Wondering I Go.  Again.
Because it’s been several months since I last purged myself of mental “wonderings,” please bear with me while I do a little pre-spring cranial cleaning. First up, a few weather wonders left in the wake of our recent record-breaking storms:

Music, Memories & Heart Murmurs
Let me state up front and unequivocally: I was not yet on planet Earth during the 40s. Or much of the 50s, for that matter. That said, I did grow up with parents who loved the music of the 1940s, an era of the big world war, big world leaders and, [...]

Hack In The USSR
(or)
Olympic Dreams & Disappointments
One of the easiest things anyone can do once every four years is to sit on the couch, watching TV coverage of the Winter Olympics and carp, complain and generally criticize the genetically blessed, gorgeously fit athletes who don’t live up to media-generated expectations.
So here I go.

Goodbye to a Great Brother
This week I fully intended to write about the spectacle of the ongoing Sochi Winter Olympics. Then, a little before 9 p.m. Tuesday night last week, our house phone rang. There’s a song with a lyric that says, “We’re all only a phone call away from our knees…” This was one [...]

Driving Our New Computer (Part 1)
I love computers. After all, I couldn’t practice my profession without them. I write on one seven days (and far too many nights) a week. My wife and I are able to see and talk with our kids and grandkids thousands of miles away thanks to computers. The phone in [...]

Our Day at the (Dog) Park
So far, at least, 2014 seems to be my year for visiting new places around town (or rediscovering them, as I wrote last week about our trip downtown to Olvera St. and Philippe the Original restaurant).
This past weekend, my better half and I took our two young and shall we [...]

Tourism At Home Seeing With Tourist’s Eyes
Since he moved to Missoula to attend the University of Montana a few years ago, we have been able to lure, cajole, beg, trick, bribe and otherwise entice our son to come back “home” to Southern California only once a year at most. Suffice it to say, he took [...]
