What's New? ... 

Back in Los Angeles ...

Well, after a couple of years of "retirement" in Palm Springs, I decided I needed a change: Palm Springs was dead.  

So I'm back in Los Angeles.  

I don't really expect to stay in LA forever.  But while I figure out this "retirement thing,"  LA seems to be a good place to be.

I'm working on ideas.  Nothing firm yet.  Probably won't be in California.

So back in LA, doing some writing while splitting time between the Westside and the SouthBay.  I've always been drawn to the ocean and going back to my roots hanging out at the Port of LA makes me feel 30 years younger.  I'll grab a scooter once a week or so and explore every inch of the waterfront. Total fun. 

Leaving the maritime business in 1989 was a big mistake.   I always loved working in the harbor.

I'll keep you posted on my next move.  

Thanks for visiting.

American Heroes ... 

This picture has always been an inspiration to me. When young Dale Ostrander went to the beach in 2011, he was dragged under the surf by a riptide off the shore.

Dale spent over 20 minutes under water in the Pacific Ocean. When rescuers found him, he had no pulse and wasn't breathing.  

Miraculously, Dale survived.  But only because these amazing heroes rushed Dale to safety.
