REFLECTIONS ON THE LOS ANGELES EARTHQUAKE
Ka boom! My small dinner table quivered spilling its contents. I stood silent. A cold shiver rushed through my spine. The bang scared the wits out of me. And while I fumbled for my daughter’s telephone number…boom…a repeat of lesser magnitude but all the same adding to the scare.
Yes, I was scared; but not of the earthquake. The thought of an earthquake didn’t cross my mind. I know earthquakes occur. I experienced my first earthquake in Los Angeles way back in 1973. And I have since read about... Read More
When I first decided to move to New York, I told everyone I’d be living in the hip, trendy, East Village area of Manhattan. Naturally, why wouldn’t I want to live there? After all, I had visited for two weeks and spent most of my free time sipping lattes at the quaint cafes, trying new cuisines at the French restaurants, shopping in the over-priced boutiques and took in as much Jazz as I could stomach while I got myself acquainted with what I thought would be my new neighborhood. Of course, since when does life ever go as we plan? After searching for apartments through Craigslist,... Read More
When a person behaves in a fashion that is unacceptable in public, they deserve to go to jail. That is what Henry Louis Gates, Jr., did and he got publicly bitch-slapped for it. He deserved every single minute of his arrest and incarceration for acting like a stupid idiot with a chip on his shoulder.On Thursday, July 16, police acted on a tip from Cabridge resident Lucia Whalen that two black men were attempting to break into the house of her neighbor. The neighbor happened to be Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. When police arrived, Sergeant James Crowley notified Mr. Gates that... Read More
Since Reno is Artown, I suggest that Artown add a couple more events. One being The Artown 2009 House Award and the other Artown 2009 Business Award. Here’s how I see it. Using the Northern Nevada Regional MLS area numbers, NNRMLS http://www.nnrmls.com/ should be a sponsor and the Northern Nevada/Reno-Sparks Board of Realtors should be the organizer, entries are nominated for each area. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th place winners from each area will be chosen by each area’s Artown House/Business Award Committee. All committees must have one local art painter, sculptor, Realtor,... Read More
As I drove down DeSoto late for a birthday gathering, my mind began to wander. I was not particularly familiar with the route I was taking as I noticed the lighting up ahead was particularly dim; some streetlights had burned out. Upon approaching the doubled busway-Victory intersection, the light turned yellow and I began to slow down. As I came to a halt, my mind snapped back into driving mode and realized the car was sitting on top of indiscernible traffic lines. Not knowing if I was on the wait here or keep clear part I slowly inched up to get a better view as I was blinded by a flash... Read More
If you're on Oahu and looking for a place away from the crowded cove, then head over to the North Shore of Haleiwa, HI for relaxation on the beach, Matsumoto's Shave Ice, dinner at a local restaurant. Then head back to town in time for soothing standards by way of the Halekulani Hotel's - Lewer's Lounge.
Ahh!!! The perfect setting for a late night rendezvous with Jazz.
On this particular balmy evening, we were serenaded by a tranquil Pianist who had a very cool blend with the audience. Tennyson Stevens.
I walked in on what must have been the final set of music for the... Read More
