I attended a conference of sorts titled An Afternoon in Los Angeles, which was put on by About.com.  Because About.com is a profit-making vehicle for the New York Times, it treats all of its writers pretty well. First, we had lunch in a private garden at the Sunset Marquis Hotel. Glorious sunshin...
Usually when we fly out of the Sacramento airport we park at the economy lot and take the bus to the terminal. This involves planning ahead and allotting enough time for driving up and down the aisles looking for parking spots in the aisles we were told had parking spots and which do not, lugging...
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge.* This is th...
Here is a companion to Witless Wednesday or Mindless Monday or Thoughtless Thursday or whatever you call it when somebody posts a photo with little or no text. Except I will tell you this is what you'll see in the back yards of a number of similar homes in Land Park. It's my springtime cactus gar...

It's a bit difficult to type this morning because I have tiny cactus spurs and thorns embedded in the tips of my fingers. Why? Because I sort of took a day off yesterday. When I take a day off, which is pretty rare, it means I remove my body from its upright position in front of the computer. It ...
I might walk under a ladder, and I don't care if a black cat crosses my path. I'm not really superstitious, but just to be safe I think I'll knock on wood when I type the next sentence. I have not received a speeding ticket for years. It's not because I don't speed. I suspect it's because I am lu...
I find that few real estate agents talk much about how the home buying decision is based on impulse. It's not just true in California where going to open houses on Sunday is akin to a religious experience for some -- home buying is an emotional experience for many buyers. Where we live is very pe...
My husband's boss warned everybody in the AP newsroom yesterday to be careful today. Because you surely do not want a hoax showing up as a news story. But what's April Fool's Day without a good joke? What's any day, for that matter, without a good joke? People might not appreciate practical jokes...
