Do we really have to say goodbye to Marilyn?
Do we really have to say goodbye to Marilyn? 
The 26 foot tall  Marilyn Monroe sculpture has provided thrills, and endless photo shoots at Palm Canyon Drive and Tahquitz Canyon Way in Palm Springs for a year.  We originally were told that "she" will be leaving in June, but today's Desert Sun reports that her stay has been extended until August.  She really does like it HOT!
The camera loves Marilyn...and she was named the Best Photo Op for the Palm Springs area in 2o13! 
In typical Palm Springs style there will be … (6 comments)

Palm Springs Celebrates Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is back in Palm Springs in a BIG way!  And now we are celebrating her legacy in Palm Springs… the place where it all began!
As a rising starlet in Hollywood, Monroe used to play by the pool on weekends at the Racquet Club when the Hollywood Production Code required movie crews to stay within two hours of the studio until a movie was completed.  Rumor has it that a William Morris agent saw her posing for pictures there and signed her to a deal that catapulted her to international stardom.
Now, as … (7 comments)

Is Palm Springs Gay?

 You know, Palm Springs...the playground of celebrities and movie stars, golf mecca, sun-worshipers paradise, palm-tree lined streets and exclusive clubs and restaurants, but Is Palm Springs Gay?
I live and work in La Quinta California, just 15 miles east of downtown Palm Springs and I was asked that question last week when engaging a couple who had stopped to look at our listings in front of the office. 
How do you answer that question?  Did they have a gay son who was thinking of re-locating?  Were they homo-phobic snobs?  Were they profiling?  Were they looking … (9 comments)
