I know I just mentioned my Dad on Memorial Day but today is the anniversary of his passing. June 6, 2010. It was not unexpected or shocking but I was still shaken to the core. The intense family drama surrounding the intensity of watching my tall, strong and capable father die was overwhelming. Although it […]
OMG she is so cute and wonderful. I am so glad she is in my life. I love my Didi bird.
Another day goes by and I am thinking of my Dad. He left us in June 2010 and really a day doesnt go by where I don’t think of him..and my Mom. Love them both and miss them tremendously. I really do. My Dad was a 30 year Army vet so every memorial day I […]
I was at a party last week and there were like 20 adults and two tiny kids. Jack and Amelia are the 2 kids. They’re twins. Not identical (duh). I think they’re like 2 years old and are very active but not vocal. They do talk to themselves however. They’re pretty good kids. Tiny meltdowns […]
So I went to Boston. I went there a few years ago for a couple of days and loved it. This time I was back for work. I was invited to speak at the Rethink Music conference. Thankfully the other panelists were super awesome so I didn’t have to talk too much! Boston is a […]
I’ve been living with apartment appliances for my entire adult life. Everything worked but they were definitely the standard inexpensive versions of refrigeration and cooking appliances. I had a microwave for a while but gave it up. I was always worried about radiation, changing the molecules of my food and my insides getting cooked. Crazy? […]
I’ve been a renter for my entire adult life. Never took the step to actually purchase a house. Got very close a few times but just could not pull the trigger. Not that I don’t want to. Owning a home is the one thing I don’t have in my life that I really really want. […]
I might have mentioned this before, but there’s been a baby explosion in my office the past few years. In a mere four years there’s been 9 babies born and there’s one more on the way. 10 kids! So I took photos of Elaine’s little one Elle here. She’s a cutie and was only 10 […]
I’m a little late with this but I’ve been a bit under the weather. After a month of fighting off a respiratory thing it finally hit me. Hard. Actually in a a matter of a few hours I felt the sore throat, fever chills, etc, etc come on. After a couple of days with no […]
Still recovering from my annual trip to Cannes, France and London. So happy I did not get sick this time (like last year) but I was definitely on the edge of getting something. The trip started out on a bad note when while standing in line for security at LAX, I realized I forgot my […]
Yep it’s 01/01/2012. The day after 12/31/2011. I hope 2012 is better than 2011 which was certainly better than 2010. Every year should be getting better and better. I can only hope.
I was asked to photograph the Long Beach Storytellers finale. I was at an event before and really loved it. The competitors get 6 minutes to tell a story. Any story. The finale had the winners from prior events competing for the title and $100. It was a full house at the Long Beach Playhouse. […]
Ahhh, so nice to have a week and half off to just chillllllllll. I took a day off from work just to be at home and chill. So nice. The next day I took a Virgin America flight to Dulles to visit the fam. Love Virgin America. The plane isnt huge, the seats are white, […]
It’s so nice to live in California. We do have seasons. They’re just milder. Like leaves on the all of the trees are all colorful now and will eventually fall off. Plus it’s a bit chilly and we get to wear jackets. It gets down to the 40’s at night and was 65 today! Today […]
***Saddened to say we lost Didi on June 28, 2012. She passed away in her sleep. Way too soon, she was only 8. I miss her so much my heart aches. Love me little Didi girl. Awe, come ON, how cute is this kitty? Dave and I adopted her from the North Valley Animal Shelter. […]
Thanks Dad. Thinking of you, love you and miss you.
I was honored to be invited to the Long Beach Searches for the Greatest Storyteller in the 562. It was a story telling competition. Each person had 5 minutes to get up in front of the audience and tell a story. Any story. At this event there were 8 storytellers. All of […]
Yup, it was my birthday. I had a good one this year – mostly. First, Didi had to go to the vet. Partially for her annual checkup but in the past month she got tons of scabby bumps all over her body. She also has Feline Herpes (which she probably got as a kitten) and […]
Banana Fanna Fo Fidi, Didi! Oh she’s my girl. My little baby girl. I love her so much I can’t stand it. She loves to play and interact face to face and she has a lot of energy. Yes, she’ll sleep, like a cat does, for hours on end but she has a lot of […]
Well I’m working late and am finally getting the time to talk about my trip (a report is running so that’s why I’m not actually “working” at this moment). Anyhoo, I went to Nags Head, North Carolina for a week. Stayed in The Beach House. Finally. My parents bought this house in the 80’s and […]
Karin hooked me up with a ticket to Terri. She works the LA Film Festival every year and always offers to hook her friends up for screenings. I’ve never taken her up on it until now. I think I mentioned before that I’ve frequented the comedy improv theater Comedy Sportz (yeah, with a “Z’). I’ve […]
Went to NYC last week. Luckily I missed all the hot weather. It was actually perfect outside. Like room temperature. I went for work but had a little fun in between. I stayed at The Benjamin which was awesome and even more so because they upgraded me to a suite! Sweet! The hotel is at […]

Dave & I taped “Girls Night Out” with Toney Pozek for GNAT-TV in Manchester, VT. I made four recipes from my book, “Sweet Things” in front of a live audience. Hot Chocolate, Granola, Pecan Sticky Buns and Savory Ricotta Tortes were enjoyed by the audience. My sister Judy came along and helped with a ton of stuff. The show […]
