I personally do not like board games, which I think are games that make you feel bored. However, my daughter loves them, and luckily for her, my sister visited this weekend and she adores games, too. They played for hours, starting with rummy tiles, then moving to old card games like War and Crazy Eights. [...]
I bought bagels yesterday to help some Junior Guards feed up before the Monster Mile. I bought a few extra to bring home for my son, who was returning from two weeks away at camp.
And now my kitchen is covered with poppy seeds.
Bruegger’s puts the bagels in a bag, but the paper bag never, ever [...]
After the terrible crash that killed five Irvine high school students on Monday on Jamboree Road, it was not a surprise to see tributes of flowers left at the scene. I understood the need for friends to visit the scene and leave flowers. But I also worried about the safety of jaywalking across Jamboree to [...]
On Saturday driving down East Coast Highway, there was the usual beautiful sunny morning traffic.
Apparently, this didn’t please a man driving a black Range Rover, who blared his horn when we stopped at an intersection to let an oncoming car complete a left turn.

But lately I find myself avoiding the little section [...]
I spent no more than 15 minutes in the police station today. But in that time, a bird did his business on my car.
On the door handle. Of the driver’s side.
Are birds smart or was this one lucky?
Thankfully I travel with paper towels in the trunk. Wish I’d seen it before I [...]
I’ve complained before about how cold it is in Albertsons.
This week, I’ve noticed Gelson’s is just as bad.
I feel as if I need a down coat in order to survive the deli line.
I’d heard from a reader that the new layout of Starbucks is a mess, but this week I was able to pop in and see what he meant.
When you go in what I always thought was the main door, it’s actually an exit. But it doesn’t say exit on the outside, just the inside. So [...]
This week, I pulled up to a four-way stop while driving my daughter to Harbor View. I was hurrying, to be clear, but not speeding. It’s hard to speed on a block where you stop or pause at every intersection.
However, a man walking his dog apparently thought I was driving like a bat out of [...]
