Catching the LEGO Americana Roadshow at Glendale Galleria

full disclosure: I received a gift bag when I attended this preview. All opinions are my own. As a kid I never could get into building things with LEGO bricks. I was too impatient to follow the directions and most of my creations tended to be…abstract. Despite this I’m endlessly fascinated with LEGO creations. Be […]

Viewing David Bowie: Among the Mexican Masters

If you ask me what my favorite movie or book or tv show is I’d be hard pressed to give you an answer. But if you ask me for my favorite song? “Heroes” by David Bowie. Hands down. Whenever I’m feeling down or a little lost or just need some inspiration I turn to it. […]

Visiting the Museum of Neon Art

A few years back I visited the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas and it was fascinating to view the gigantic neon signs that once lined the strip but it would have been even better to see them lit. I have only vague memories of Vegas in its neon heyday and could only imagine what some […]

Visiting the Forest Lawn Museum

A couple of months ago, as you may recall, Shannon and I headed to Bauer Pottery for one of its weekend sales. As we approached the location I discovered it was located on the backside of Forest Lawn. And not just any Forest Lawn but the granddaddy of them all in Glendale. I must admit […]
