Malibu, it’s Not Just a Beach

Having family visit from back east is a great opportunity to once again, be a tourist, this time in a city not far from my home.  Malibu Beach is just up the road about 45 minutes, depending on the traffic. Malibu, known for its pristine beaches and surfers is also home to the rich and famous,…

All Aboard

Welcome to Metrolink.  Now what?  Parking is free, that’s a good thing.  Buy a TAP card. Confused, just ask the regulars standing around, everyone was very helpful.  The TAP card is your access through the turnstile that allows you to board the train. There it is over there.

I Love LA

How often do you take advantage of the city you live in? A few weeks ago I boarded a double decker bus along with some of my friends to do just that. You may have seen “tourists” riding in buses; cameras blazing, as they snap away at sights that those of us that live in…

Hockey at Dodger Stadium

Los Angeles Sights

Like many cities, we all have our favorite “go to” places to eat.   They may not be healthy but they sure do deliver when it comes to taste and long time memories.  Such is the case with Johnnie’s Pastrami. I wish you could smell this. For those of you that currently live near by…

Uplifting Upland

My friend Shari and I met her sister and niece for some lunch and shopping in Upland, a city that’s about 35 miles from Westchester. For those of you unfamiliar with the 605 freeway and traffic in general in Los Angeles and vicinity, it took us a little over an hour to get there. In…
