And the Beat Goes On...

"She's a Beatnik, wears all black, has that long, white hair down to here, and she hangs out with those people, listening to poets, smoking and drinking coffee all night. She's a ballet dancer, you know. Studies dance, over in Berkeley. Wants to be dancer..." That's what my "big" ears overhead... Sign in to see full entry.

January 6

Happy Little Christmas! - Buona Befana! The word "befana " comes from the Italian word " epifania, " meaning Epiphany. Here's a typical picture of the good witch who brings gifts to children who have behaved or a lump of coal (charcoal, I would think, since it's Italy) to those who have misbehaved...

“Little Christmas” Eve

Tomorrow, January 6, is what we called Little Christmas at our house when I was a girl. Technically it is the Feast of the Epiphany, the day assigned as the one the Wise Men or the Three Kings; the Magi, brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the Baby Jesus. As children, my sibs and I... Sign in to see full entry.

An Update - Literal and Figurative - to the Quake Alert App

In case I thought the fiasco with the Early Warning Quake Alert App was over, little did I know, but it's apparently just getting started. Last night, after all the hassle to get the thing installed on the iPhone, I read that it is good only for Los Angeles County. Oh, Nooo! I'm not there. Does this... Sign in to see full entry.

Failure

I've failed miserably. Bad. Bad. Bad. It had been my intention to cut out chips and CocaCola this year. Really. Truly. For good. It's not like I don't have the ability to comprehend that they are on the no-no list, and why. It's about eating healthier. But today, Daughter #2 (who is doing as well as...

Daughter #2 had an out-patient surgical procedure this morning, so I will be with her until evening. What was it, you may ask? I was taught that psychologically it's better to spit out the truth about medical issues because it's often better to hear than what people's minds may imagine. She had an...

And in New York...

"Who's Wearing a Diaper?" The TV was on last night just in time to hear Ryan Seacrest begin his Rockin' Eve show - not that I enjoy watching it, but... Ryan's standing there, in the rain, in the cold, mic in hand, chatting, or should I say, warming up, the crowd. I wasn't paying much attention to... Sign in to see full entry.

Hi there, dear people of Blogitsville. I'm just taking a few days off, in case anyone's wondering if I fell off of this planet yet. Hope everyone is doing well here in town. Will be back soon and catch up with y'all then. Hugs. RP Sign in to see full entry.
