This is arguably the stupidest thing I have ever spent time writing about, arguably. People can get really demented about their loyalty to a particular soft drink. This is completely understandable in my opinion. I am a Diet Coke lover. Yes, lover and I have made an extremely important decision: this is the only way […]
Jill, The Goot and I went on a trail ride through Irvine Park on Wednesday. We mosseyed past Prickly Pear cactus, a roadrunner (FYI, these aren’t as big as in the cartoon, who knew?) and other happy riders enjoying the beautiful Fall morning. Our guide, the immensely knowledgeable and cute Alisha, hoisted us up on […]

Triple the factor is they display it in a prominent place their home for any innocent visitor to happen upon. 2. New Age Music. 3. Red […]
I LOVE the new Crowded House Video for She Called Me up.
We went to Palm Springs this weekend. We had a great time and I picked up this great pair of shoes at Oh LaLa on Palm Canyon. While there, we visited our friends Jim and Melinda (thanks guys!). I discovered Jim and I share similar interests in 1950’s advertisements. Besides being the nicest guy you […]
