13 Novels for Your Wish List; Or What to Look for at Book Expo (2019)

For the second year in a row I will not be able to attend Book Expo in New York. I'm not all that upset because the real-life trade-offs I made are well worth it. On the downside, I hate missing the chance to visit with friends, see the city, and eat some good food. I'm also sorry to miss out on learning about all the new books coming out in the second half of the year. I can't do anything about compensating for missed face-to-face conversations with friends, but I can do something abou...

Where the billionaires are concentrated

While the census doesn't name individual billionaires or their ventures, these trends toward tech-centric business creation certainly include the founders of high profile Bay Area companies such as Facebook and Google. It's also unsurprising, then, that given the concentration of tech billionaires real estate prices in cities such as San Francisco continue to rise.

Gardening: What to know about the bacterial disease infecting trees in the LA area

If you are considering planting a tree, you might want to eliminate southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) and jacaranda from your list of choices.  There is a bacterial disease that is infecting these trees, and liquidambars and sycamores, too, especially in the San Fernando Valley, but throughout the greater Los Angeles area as well. I would also be reluctant to plant an olive tree. Over the last five years in Puglia which, geographically speaking, is the heel of Italy’s boot, eleven million...

Freedom of the Press: Inside Former Washington Post Editor Ben Bradlee’s Georgetown House, Transformed

Ben Bradlee, the famed Washington Post editor and bon vivant—played by Tom Hanks in The Post and Jason Robards in All the President’s Men—probably wouldn’t recognize his old Georgetown residence. Remodeled in an elegantly succinct style that’s far more European than preppy, it’s still nonetheless his kind of place: the double living room is designed for hobnobbing, the dining table stands ready for a crowd, and every room is filled with family mementos, a pair of water skis included. What’s more...

Pacoima man charged with unsecured handguns in home after son makes threat at San Fernando high school

A crackdown on Los Angeles parents who fail to secure guns in their homes has ensnared a Pacoima man who was visited by school police officers in November after his son allegedly threatened to shoot another student at a high school in San Fernando.

Love ‘Game of Thrones’? These dragons can grow in the garden

Plants are full of surprises. You never know what to expect and that’s why to dabble in the dirt is to be humble. Even after years of planting, you are always a beginner in the garden. Everything you do in the garden – your horticultural laboratory — is an experiment and you should not be afraid to fail. Growing avocadoes in Temecula was a laughable proposition until one person was bold enough to try and now thousands of acres of so-called alligator pear trees are flourishing there. Pistachio tr...
