Viewing Dressing Downton at Muzeo

I’ve long been a fan of period drama so back in 2011 when I heard a new show called Downton Abbey was coming to PBS I was completely on board. I watched the pilot and was immediately hooked and watched the first couple of seasons religiously but once Sybil kicked the bucket I was out.¬† […]

A Wet and Windy Day in San Francisco

When I travel I try to make the most of my time in a new place and cram my days with activities. My reasoning is that there are so many places in the world to see that I don’t have time to make a return visit. So, I try to see as much as I […]

Exploring theBlu: An Underwater VR Experience at Natural History Museum LA

I’m a very adventurous person but there’s one thing I’ll never do. I’ll never scuba dive. I’ve snorkeled and it was amazing but I have no intention of going any deeper. To me the ocean is a fascinating but scary place and I will stay on the surface thank you very much. Yet, I do […]

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. […]

Exploring Lake Tahoe and the Eastern Sierras

Last week I wrote all about my family’s adventures through California Gold Country, the region of the state lying just west of the Sierra Nevada’s. We discovered a beautiful area rich in history but were also eager to discover the Eastern side of the mountain range. Luckily, we did just that as we made our […]

Viewing Diamonds: Rare Brilliance at Natural History Museum LA

When I was young one of my favorite stores to visit was Natural Wonders. No longer in business, it was a store that had a huge selection of gems and minerals and I loved looking at all their unique sizes and shapes. To this day I still love looking at them and one of the […]

Holiday Model Trains Come to Muzeo

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Come on, sing with me! I love Christmas. It’s my very favorite holiday and and I try to make the most of it. It’s been a little harder this year since I’ve been under the weather but I’m still determined to have as much holiday spirit as […]

Visiting the Spider Pavilion at Natural History Museum LA

Spiders…eek! I’ve never been a fan of the eight legged arachnids. There’s just something so creepy crawly about them that to this day I have to call my dad when I see one in the house. Not common garden spiders. Those I can handle. And Daddy Long Legs. They’re not so bad. But anything darker, […]

Visiting the Streetlight Museum

People often ask me how I find out about so many different places to visit in Southern California and the truth is I don’t often know myself.¬†People tell me things, I see them online and I read about them in magazines. I just keep my eyes and ears open and anything unique I come across […]

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 […]
