Mexico City has now legalized gay marriage.  What is wrong with Los Angeles?  And they had the Roman Catholic Church to deal with, we have Orange County.

According to the AFP, Javier... read on

    It is the day of the eve of…you know. 

    I can’t believe it is already that time of year.  Where did 2009 go?  And where was I the whole time it was passing me by?

    The busy shopping, Hallmark-driven town stops for one night a year.  Three hundred and sixty four days of madness and... read on

  • When The Hubby’s Away

    When the hubby’s away, it’s the little things I miss most.

    It is the things I don’t think about until he is gone.  (And he was gone for three weeks, so I had plenty of time to think about it.  He is often gone and on the road as a professional guitarist…but some things you just... read on

  • Dating, Sex and a Rabbi?

    By Mihal Levy

    December 21, 2009 | 2:00 pm

    A rabbi who is an expert on dating and sex?  Is it just me or is that an oxymoron?

    A particular rabbi, not to mention any names, has made a killing off of his ‘expertise’ about how to romance a woman, why men cheat and what it is like to be a superstar (of course piggy backing on... read on

    There are two kinds of people in the world: those that send you a birth announcement with a catalog and order form from their multi-tiered pyramid business, and those who do not.  I would just like to meet more of the “do nots.”

    I am beginning to think the world is not round, but... read on

    For Hanukkah I decided to treat my son to a special time at Disneyland.  And although we have annual passes, this time would be different.  We would spend the night at a local hotel in Anaheim and head to Disneyland again the next day.

    My son was elated.  We got up early and packed... read on

  • Mr. Rogers Never Lived In My Neighborhood

    By Mihal Levy

    Helping is overrated, at least that is what Mr. Nice Neighbor thinks.

    I am all for women’s liberation and believe that women can hold open their own doors and carry their own shopping bags, but just because we can, doesn’t mean help wouldn’t be nice.  (And holding the door for... read on

  • Deep Fried

    Although Hanukkah is not the holiday of questions, I still have one.  I know why this night is different than all other nights.  But, if a little bit of oil went a long way, oh so long ago…why must I purchase vats of oil for a deep fried supper tonight?  I’m just asking.  Shouldn’t a... read on
