Gourmet Taste Of Santa Monica

By Ricky Ricardo, published on Sep 15, 2008

... get some direct face to face marketing exposure. The restaurants owners benefit more when people actually visit their establishment and recommend the place to other people.

New to the Taste of Santa Monica were the Inter-active Molecular Ice Cream Lab. Chefs from the Art Institute of California Los Angeles led the crowd in making some delightfully tasty ice cream. This booth as well as the Acadie Hand Crafted French Crepes and Locanda Del Lago/Caffe Bellagio were the most popular at the festival.

A great collection of wineries were featured in the wine garden serving... (more)

Oh The Hypocrisy!

By D. E. Carson, published on Sep 14, 2008

...sides are going to say something that the other side is going to pounce upon and point fingers and scream “hypocrite!”   It’s the double-standard issue that has been prevalent in American politics for years but has only become more pronounced since the 2006 mid-term elections.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein even participated in the hypocrisy on the same program this morning.  Senator Feinstein and Tennessee Republican Representative Marsha Blackburn were going back and forth over Sarah Palin.  Feinstein adamantly defended the vetting process to which Palin has been... (more)

Brian Wilson: That Lucky Old Sun

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Sep 14, 2008

...back to back, and on and on... That Lucky Old Sun, is a masterpiece! It's a work of art! My favorite track, Midnight's Another Day is considered a classic. (At least that's what I read, but I don't remember where.) Listening to this album you get the feeling that Brian Wilson misses Southern California in the 1960's. He makes a lot of references about thedifferent places which make up the heartbeat of L.A. He makes me go back in time with his new album. I also discovered something creative in his songwriting and composing ability. His style of music is more like a symphony because he is a... (more)

Another Drug To Be Scared Of: Salvia

By travelingseth, published on Sep 13, 2008

...for the drug.

“We have this incredible new compound, the first in its class; it absolutely has potential medical use, and here we’re talking about throttling it because some people get intoxicated on it,” said Dr. John Mendelson, a pharmacologist at the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute who, with federal financing, is studying salvia’s impact on humans. “It couldn’t be more foolish from a business point of view.”

Later that night, flipping TV channels, I saw a teaser for a local news story... (more)

Happy Endings

By tmoya, published on Sep 12, 2008

Recently I went to see Bottle Shock, a movie about the 1976 French wine competition that introduced California wine to the world’s palate. The film was humorous, but most importantly it had a happy ending.

I’ve been contemplating happy endings for some time now. Several nights before Bottle Shock, I sat down in front of my flat screen with Love Actually in the DVD player. Once again drawn to a happy ending – every time I watch this film I can’t help sitting with this goofy grin while Colin Firth proposes marriage to the Brazil girl in the crowded restaurant.

Hurricanes And Human Decency

... available to any employee staying in a Hilton hotel or a shelter. During Hurrican Katrina we also had to relocate employees for work in other cities outside of New Orleans, and this was costly. For example, if an employee was staying in a shelter in Alabama and a job vaccancy was available in California, it was my job to transmit the appropriate paperwork to Corporate and put them on a plane to begin working immediately. The process was running smoothly until I received a frantic phone call from one of our associates living in the Astrodome.Tasha* was staying intheshelter with her children.... (more)

Duh Na. Duh Na.

By slowasigo, published on Aug 31, 2008

Twenty years ago I sat in a Disneyland amphitheater as a member of the Southern California Youth Symphony. Playing second trumpet doesn’t typically afford inspiring solos nor dramatic musical interludes. This performance was different. We were performing music by John Williams. As an uncooperative student of classical music, two instruments, and neighborhood beat downs, playing such popular music as Star Wars, Superman and Raiders of the Lost Ark was geek-squad equivalents of dunking a basketball, kissing a cheerleader or owning a car.

John Williams is one of the most prolific... (more)
