    As I walked my dog around the neighborhood last night, in deep suburbia of Orange County, I was completely caught off guard when a man said “Hello!”  I am not sure how it is in other suburban areas of this country, but around mine its a pretty uncommon thing to hear.  It was such...

    September 2, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    I can't think of anyone who doesn't love a parade. The first one I remember attending was as a 10-year-old. My parents took my brother and me to what was then called the "Santa Claus Lane Parade," which took place just after Thanksgiving Day and made its way down Hollywood...
