Did you know that March is Beautiful Women Month? Well, it is and that means you !!! Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her "beauty tips." It was read at her funeral years later. For attractive lips , speak words of kindness... For lovely eyes , seek out the good in people. For a slim figure , share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair , let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise , walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone... People, even more than things, have (11 comments)
After 1.75 inches of rain here in Long Beach, we experienced one of the most beautiful days ever! It is so rare that the air is so clean and clear in Los Angeles County. Up at the highest peak in the Long Beach area, Signal Hill was teeming with onlookers and photographers. You could see all of Los Angeles and Orange County. A collection of these photos are in my blog's photo album: My Photo Album Here are a few for your enjoyment! A view of Long beach, the breakwater and Catalina Island on an exceptionally clear day.

Some of the pieces he stole have never been found. Others have resurfaced and have been found in the most unlikely (8 comments)
marie kletke: Leaving a Legacy - 08/03/07 04:21 AM
There is much history in my family. My grandparents from both sides experienced Spanish colonialism. My parents experienced overwhelming fear at a young age fron the atrocities committed around them during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines.

marie kletke: NAPLES, CA: One Man's Dream of A Taste of Italy in the West Coast - 07/26/07 02:39 PM
Naples, California is a peninsula on the southern most tip of Long Beach. It was the dream of A.M. Parsons and his son to bring a taste of Italy into southern California.
