“Ant-Man” and a UC Santa Cruz alum.

I’m not an action movie fan, usually.  I liked Robert Downey, Jr. in “IRON MAN” but that was as far as my fascination went… until I heard that Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas were cast in “ANT–MAN” by Marvel Studios. “ANT-MAN” delivered, and the audience loved it.  Because AXEL ALONSO is a graduate of UC…

The Ice Bag cometh.

When we were in France with Jeff and Jan Greenhawt, I saw this great invention:  an ice bag that was clear and could take water/ice to keep a bottle cool. Jeff, always-thinking, went on Amazon and just like that, ordered us each two of them. Yesterday our bags arrived.  I wanted to let him they…

Follow-up from Bob Saget.

After a “Scleroderma” dinner that Bob Saget hosted — and has a big hand in producing every year — I wrote him this letter. He sent back a picture of the group of comedians & actors who were there that night for him… and then sent me a personal note on his own stationery as…

Cool (library) card.

Sherry Stern has offered to help me get my website up if I need the help — and she’s wonderful about reaching out… I loved these cards, which look like the kind you use to check out a book from the library.  Remember those?  Remember the Dewey Decimal system? Please Share

Hallmark Museum.

Jennifer Hronek, who was my wedding planner has become my stationery provider and knows my predilection/obsession for paper. She’s away at a Silpada silver jewelry convention in Las Vegas… and sent me a shot of a temple of productivity she KNEW I’d want to see — The Hallmark Museum. See it from the rooftop?  I…
