Cherrys are Go!

About four or five years ago, I became aware of a remake of the original Gerry and Sylvia Anderson series, “The Thunderbirds”.  I’ve been a fan of the show since it aired in America when I was in the 6th grade.  And about a dozen years or so ago, the […]

It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas

Around here, we have our own favorite Christmas songs that we listen to.  Let’s start with my favorite J-Pop Christmas sing from my favorite J-Pop band, Puffy Amiyumi, “R.G.W.”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggmWJoPiUdM Mostly, we like non-traditional versions of Christmas songs.  Most of our favorites are from radio host, Bob Rivers.  For example…  […]

The owners of the company I work for live in Malibu.  Occasionally I’m asked to take papers over there to get their signature if they’re not coming into the office. That area has peacocks.  I stopped to take a picture of this guy. I didn’t want to get too close […]

California Watermelon Festival

A week ago, I didn’t even know there was a watermelon festival.  But a friend of ours, Frank, not only told us about it, but paid for our admission.  Thank you, Frank! This was out by Hansen Dam in Los Angeles.  Not as big as the California Strawberry Festival that […]
