Making the Most of Every DayThe massacre out in California the other day was another reminder of how fragile life is. I am 66-years old, and I am reminded everyday as my back and legs creak trying to get out of bed in the morning that each day is a blessing…a gift. My dad used to tell people when...

Last night, my wife and I were watching another recorded episode of “Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles” on the Bravo network.  It is sort of fascinating watching these agents as they zip around Los Angeles in their flashy and expensive cars selling and listing multi-million dollar properties, a...

Sadly, I wrote the following post only in July...and here it is just a few months later and it has happened again. Another senseless massacre at the hands of another deranged individual.
