    A Song About L.A.

    I moved to California from NY in the early 1980's, and left in the mid 1990's. Besides culture shock....I have lots of good memories too. Randy Newman - I Love LA

    Born And Raised

    I was born and raised in Southern California.  I have 1000's of stories relating to what California used to be like.  One of my favorites is:  I am old enough to have seen the Laguna Beach greeter when he was alive.  More to come

    Born And Raised In The Bay Area

     I was born and raised in Southern California.  I stayed until I was 32 and left.  Haven't been back much since.  I have been to Disneyland over 50 times, but only once in the last 25 years.  Sometimes I think I have been on every road in California built...

    It's 0 deg. Fahrenheit with a low of -6 F. I've never lived in such a cold place. Needless to say, I'm not going out today. I'm glad I did my grocery shopping yesterday.
