Jane Pinheiro

We took a drive over to the Theodore Payne nursery this morning to get a few plants. Inside the main building, they are having a small showing of the late Jane Pinheiro's artwork. Although she was more known for her water colors, I was taken by the linocuts on display. And the actual wood blocks created and used by Jane. She was an expert on desert flora and annotated her works with what species she was painting. She helped found the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve

Ryan's Speech

I've been reading this morning about all the falsehoods and lies embedded in the Paul Ryan speech last night. This video captures a bunch of them and has the fact checkers calling him out. It's so blatant that even Fox News has to pile on...... Watch here

    Mongolian Smiles

    Baaska has a thing for smiley faces. I guess the symbol is popular in Mongolia. So we made him a pair of smiley shirts. Here he and Martina are wearing them but not seeming to get the full message of the T Shirt.....

    Bandaged in Burbank

  • I went in for a consultation to a new podiatrist and left 3 hours later with both feet wrapped up and a few days of horizontal exclusivity prescribed. The doctor had a great bedside manner and I think I've finally found someone who can help these tiresome dogs.

    Brooklyn Movies

    Joined a few pals in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge last week for an alfresco movie. A great view of the sun setting over South Street Seaport and a few hundred like minded people looking to laugh.

    Olympic Commercials

    A few months ago, Ellen directed some interesting commercials for ATT. For the Olympics, the commercials left blank images and times that would have to be edited in when an American actually won an event. So with an American win essential to the commercial making it to air, no one knew how many of these ads would actually be shown. Thankfully, Team America is excelling and most the ads have been airing.
