 In The Beginning In The Beginning Some may think of December Thirty One as the last day of the year and, of course, it is but it's also so much more than that or any day...   Rather than endings, I am thinking of beginnings.  In Pasadena, that means the arrival of The Tournament of Roses Parade ...
   Fact - Fiction - Feelings Of Fa La La La  Fact - Fiction - Feelings Of Fa La La La   Christmas Day is a traditional movie-going time for me.   Sometimes two.   This year was a bit different with other activities taking place.  So it wasn't until this past Friday, I saw the movie Bombshell.   A...
 I've Got A Secret...   I've Got A Secret...  The word "secret" may lead you to some interesting interpretations.  Hidden.  Keeping unknown.  Maybe clandestine.  Confidential.  All sorts of definitions/explanations this or any word can take...  With the recent holidays, many of us many have been ...
 Christmas Eve 2019 It's A Wrap  Christmas Eve 2019 - It's A Wrap   Last night was Christmas Eve, 2019.  And another year has passed.  Many moments of 2019 have become memories.   During our traditional family meal of pizza(just one piece....really)followed by an evening of far too many desserts(...

I don't know about you but I have been fooled or influen...
 Two Recent Trips To The Movies  Two Recent Trips To The Movies  I may no longer travel as much as I once did but a trip to the movie theater can definitely transport me.  At least temporarily.  That was certainly true for two recent film experiences which were particularly good journeys.   The f...
 Is This A Good Neighborhood?  Is This A Good Neighborhood?  A bit of background:  when I was a child we received two newspapers daily.  In the morning.  Then again in the afternoon.  Different opinions and points of view.  Over time I learned about those differences.   I also remember "reading" ...
for A Boy And His Dog A BoyAnd His Dog  While out and about walking it is not uncomon for me to see dogs being walked...especially early mornings when the air seems particularly clean and fresh and oh so new.   That was certainly the case after a bit of overnight rain earlier this week which made...
