This is one of a series of old blog posts I’m re-publishing in honor of my 9/10’s of a decade writing SoCal Mom. This is from February 2005 – and coincidentally, we’re in the middle of another storm surge, although thankfully, not one fueled by an El Nino weather pattern. Visitors to Southern California in the winter are often surprised (and...

Wordless Wednesday: On a Clear Day in Los Angeles

Wordless Wednesday: On a Clear Day in Los Angeles

I’ve been busy over at MOMocrats this week. So I hope you will allow me to share some photos I took over the weekend, when the air was clear and you could see for miles and miles. We were with friends down in San Pedro, and we drove back through downtown Los Angeles. The city looked so beautiful that I took out my camera and started snapping — from the...

Easy Organic Eating with SPUD

Last night, I got to cross another item off my bucket list: I finally caught my first live performance of Cirque du Soleil. I’m kind of ashamed it has taken me this long: Cirque has been performing on and off  in Los Angeles since 1984, when it made its US debut at that year’s LA Arts Festival. I was busy. And broke. And that has been my excuse for the...

Huell Howser: A SoCal Inspiration

By on Jan 8, 2013 in Celebrities, Current Events, SoCal Life, Television | 7 comments

My husband was such a fan of Huell Howser that he called me from work yesterday when he heard the news. We both enjoyed watching the venerable human interest reporter with the seemingly endless curiosity about our local treasures. Howser was such a presence on local public television that most Angelenos may have forgotten that he started in LA on CBS owned and...

The Night My Kid Met Betty White

The Night My Kid Met Betty White

By on Dec 11, 2012 in Celebrities, SoCal Life | 5 comments

Betty White is a national treasure. My 16-year-old daughter has loved Betty ever since she stole “The Proposal” from Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Thanks to that movie, a whole new generation fell in love with the sweet and salty persona that have made her America’s grandmother. As a child of the 1960s, I was already a fan. Betty White has been...
