Little League Celebrates 70th Anniversary

Well, at least steroids haven't spoiled little league...yet. Beverly Hills celebrated in style, says the once great L.A. Times, and I tip my hat to the B.H. Cardinals, a team I once belonged to so many years ago.

With the big swarm down south in Imperial Valley and the Alaska Volcano and the other earthquakes, I've gotta say earthquakes are definitely on my mind.

It's been 15+ years since the last "big one" in L.A. (it was huge if you were here, but not huge compared to how big it can be) and I can't help but think we've been experiencing earthquake weather (L.A. natives, you know it, you've sensed it).

Pack up the water and batteries, that's all I'm saying.

Natasha Richardson and Defamer

With all due respect to the late brilliant actress Natasha Richardson (R.I.P.), I cannot help but be befudddled by Gawker/Defamer's very poor (hopefully accidental and not contextual) same page advertising.  Oy.  There are systems in place to avoid something like this, people.

Atwater Village

Lord, I do love Atwater Village. We've lived here ten years this coming May, and it has changed remarkably. On Saturday afternoon, I just loved that we were working on our front yard, staining our gate and our neighbors were out in force, planting new plants, working on their cars, just being present. We all were present and out in the street and it felt great.
