Perhaps it’s a deeply-ingrained rhythm from school days past but, for me, September has always been a month of anticipation and excitement about the road and discoveries ahead. That same sense of anticipation always surrounds the opening of the county’s performing arts season, which kicks off this month and continues at break-neck speed through June 2011. Some of the world’s best can be found right here and there is so…Continue

It's Friday night and it's been a long week and all I want to do is have a little dinner, have a glass of wine and chill at home for the evening but I have these tickerts to the Jazz Concert at the Hyatt Regency. I don't know the artists who will be playing so that wasn't helping me get excited either but nevertheless, I rally and get to the concert right at 8:00 (starting time) and take my seat. The first act begins, a young fellow named Spencer Day is introduced. When he started to sing…
I just got back from three days in Encinitas and, after four trips to CA, I'm totally bitten! I would LOVE to relocate to the San Diego County area but not sure how to go about it. I'm a nurse with a lot of years under my belt. How are job prospects for nurses there? What's the best way to find (an affordable!) place to live? Any advice from those in the know, especially if you've done it recently yourself, would be so appreciated!

Ahh, an evening under the stars in Newport Beach at the Hyatt Regency listening to David Sanborn. The venu which is intimate and magical with the stars and sliver of moon is one of my favorites, partially because it's in my back yard but it is also just magical to be outside enjoying good music. Many are sipping wine or having coffee and desert while they listen to the sounds of David Sanborns' sax accompanied by his organist and drummer. All three performers obviously enjoying entertaining the… Continue
Alright, corny title, I know, but it’s been stuck in my head ever since our visit to the L.A. County Fair a few days ago. I’d always had the idea that fairs were basically some throwback, agricultural exhibit with a Ferris Wheel to provide the thrills. Well, they may have originally started out like that sometime way…

I fell in love with paddling long ago at summer camp on Catalina Island. Since then, I’ve transitioned from canoe to kayak, but the joy of the experience has never diminished. There is something completely magical about being close to the sparkling water, gliding quietly along, feeling… Continue
