What's New? ... 

                    Update in Process

Yes I know.  I haven't updated this page in ages.

Guess what?  A big update is coming!  Why?  Well, after a great deal of thought, I'm on my way BACK TO LOS ANGELES!

I've been in Palm Springs for almost a year and a half and I'm going numb with boredom.

 - Golf?
 - Indian Casinos?
 - Scorching Summers? 

I don't golf.  I don't gamble.  And I'm tired of staying indoors for 4 months out of the year. Throw in the fact that real estate in Palm Springs is totally ridiculous and it all adds up to ... get me back to Santa Monica.

Palm Springs?  Very overrated.  No idea what Frank Sinatra found so great here.  Must have been the golf.

The next 30 days will be a nightmare ... leaving here and heading back to LA.  I'll see you on October 17th. Tired but smiling because I'll be back in Los Angeles!

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.
