Etiquette Dilemma Solved, Thanks to TJ Maxx & You

Etiquette Dilemma Solved, Thanks to TJ Maxx & You

My 84 year- old mother is a Maxxinista. Unfortunately, most of her TJ Maxx purchases end up in my closet. It’s not like I don’t like stuff, I just have enough stuff.  My mother is from the More is More school of home decorating;  I live in an Enough is Enough house.  So whenever my […]

Chasing the Shot

Chasing the Shot

Last weekend I saw a wonderful exhibit of Vivian Maier’s street photography. You can see it, too, at the Stephen Cohen Gallery in Los Angeles, through November 12th.

It’s an Awesome Thing: B-Log

It’s an Awesome Thing: B-Log

I post the It’s an Awesome Thing series whenever I run across something particularly awesome in the store. It may include books, gift items, stationery items, etc., but they will all tend towards the quirky, cool, and just plain strange. It could happen daily, monthly, or never again, but then again, we have so many […]

Modeling Eaton Canyon

Modeling Eaton Canyon

USC Annenberg J-school student Rosa Trieu is reporting on the recent spate of tragic deaths among novice hikers in Eaton Canyon, and says she heard from the staff at the Nature Center that I was the go-to guy on musing about how and why it happens. As in my theory, based on youthful experience — […]
