California: Behind the Scenes..How to Make a Rose Parade Float - 12/31/07 06:54 PM
Float Decorating for the 119th Tournment of Roses Parade January 1, 2008This year marks 119th year of the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena. If you have only seen the parade it's hard to realize just how spectacular the floats are or how much work goes into them...My sister is here from Colorado with my nieces...so we decided to go see the Rose Parade floats being decorated. About 10 years ago I got to work on a float and it was so much fun. My family loved getting to see how the floats come together. If you have never gone I (7 comments)
Manhattan Beach- Beach Cities: Christmas Eve Thoughts - 12/24/07 11:28 PM

Price doesn't seem to be as big a factor as perceived value. There are a number of (10 comments)
Last week I went to a Christmas party that featured a Magician. The gentleman was a close up illusionist. I was in the front row and was determined not to be tricked by his sleight of hand... not a chance. This guy was so good I didn't have a prayer. I thought I was following his every move but he was misdirecting my attention the entire time. It's one thing to see a little misdirection at a show that is supposed to be entertaining.. it's quite another to have the government try to pass it off as a solution to a (37 comments)
