A Bit of Brocante

  Antique paper love drool But I cannot get attached that is the downside to being a buyer. Desire.Hoarding.Sentimental. are not qualities to have if you are a buyer to resale. (Wait a sec is hoarding a quality? Insert laughing face.)        Taking the steps to reopen my online business. Though all I want to do is hold the baby. Plus the idea of going to a brocante makes me anxious given the situation we are facing. How does one social distance when one wants to dive in and dig? Will my passi...

Blackberries What is it Lately

On the trail, I spotted a small blackberry patch its pink petals waved me over, the blackberries are weeks away from ripeness. As I walked on I thought, "What is it with blackberries this year?" It is as if it is my symbolic message guide or something. Thinking that struck me funny as Covid 19 has changed me... Today a large black beetle was crossing the road I assumed it would be flattened before it could cross safely. Before Covid 19 I would have been too afraid to pick it up but not today...

The Sacred Forest Where I Live: Saint Baume

  The healing grace of living and walking in the countryside.     These photos are from my village which sits at the base of the Saint Baume Mountain. The ancient stone bridges are at the Source du Nans natural park about a mile from our home. Chelsea and I strolled Gabriel there to put his feet in the ice-cold natural spring which is said to be the tears of Mary Magdelena (read more below).      My form of physical exercise is walking. I started walking several years ago but when I went to C...

119 Flowers

Back in early March when I started to feel the delicate balance of our world as we know it and COVID 19  gaining ground I began to post a flower photo a day to my Facebook account to offer a sign of hope, cheer, serenity... As of today, there are 119 photos here a few of them for a Sunday Bouquet.     Flowers from my sister in law.         During a walk in my village Flowers for peace of heart                           In a shop window in Paris.   On a walk while in Paris       ...

I Promise I Won’t Post Baby Photos Everyday...

  I promise I won't (though I that is all I want to do) post baby photos every day. Chelsea and her little family stayed with us for a few days. I am amazed I didn't gobble Gabriel up in one bite. He is a healing balm, an adorable joy, a cautious little boyboy and almost as big as me. My brother Marty asked that I send a photo of Gabriel and me, which was sweet. He said he wanted to see us together. Chelsea took this photo.     It takes every muscle in my body to lift this chunk a lunk. What...

Gabriel

    Chelsea calls him "Love Love" and he is and we do. Chelsea was washing the dishes, I was preparing something and Gabriel sat at the kitchen counter angle between us. When I saw the light, and those silk ribbon tied rolls I grabbed my cell phone to take a photo of him. It is times like that I wish my camera was as near as my phone. We are deeply in love with this little person.                           [Author: French la Vie]

Peaceful Distraction

A torn leaf holds the remains of last night’s thunderstorm  an insect approaches for a sip walking by I am drawn to the vibrant color  Mesmerized - my thoughts drift - leading my steps in a different direction. Literally. A few kilometers later I sense the scenery is not the same I have gone off course. I keep walking thinking romantically all roads lead to Rome, confident that I will find my way home.  A few kilometers later Rome is nowhere in sight... not worried I grabbed my phone to see ...

Little libraries can have a big impact amid a very big pandemic

We old timers are a stubborn lot. Many of us still have our landlines, and we hung on to our typewriters and LP’s until the bitter end, hoping for a comeback. We still write letters, enjoy our local newspaper with our morning coffee, and our books are hardcover and in our hands, not on a screen. We know technology is making life faster and easier, but the jury’s still out on better. We’re not going to let our old habits die without a fight. When the coronavirus took away our libraries this year,...

Firefighting woes the result of Sacramento’s poor choices

SACRAMENTO – A few years ago, I blithely drove toward the Humboldt redwood forests across the coastal ranges without checking the morning road updates. Let’s just say that moving along in small metal box with fires raging on both sides of Highway 20 gives one a new appreciation of the perilous work firefighters do to contain such blazes. As another grueling fire season grips California, I understand growing concerns about a widely reported lack of firefighting resources. Although structure fires...

Dodgers get homers from Cody Bellinger, Max Muncy in win over Rangers

If the Dodgers are one of the many teams circling around Rangers right-hander Lance Lynn — and they are — they did what they could to lower the price. The Dodgers got to Lynn for four runs in six innings Saturday on the way to handing him and the Texas Rangers a 7-4 defeat at Globe Life Field. Lynn is likely to be the top starting pitcher moved before Monday’s trade deadline. Saturday’s loss still leaves him with a sparkly 1.93 ERA to attract suitors. But the four runs matched the most he has al...

When the Milwaukee Bucks walked out, they didn’t imagine how wide their protest would spread

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Milwaukee Bucks’ protest that shook the sports world arrived mere minutes before the team’s scheduled 1 p.m. tip against the Orlando Magic. For many of them, the sweat they’d worked up from pregame warm-ups was still on their skin. Forward Wesley Matthews was changing in his game shorts. But in that locker room, which Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer called “a sacred place,” something happened to change the course of the afternoon: George Hill told the team he had been t...

Want to boost economic growth? Tell government to spend less

Intellectuals are supposed to speak truth to power. Unfortunately, some seem to be more interested in saying what everyone expects them to say, which only reinforces the status quo. Thankfully, a few scholars are resisting this trend, fighting for what is true rather than what is popular. Case in point: a recent Hoover Institution paper on “A Pro-Growth Fiscal Consolidation Plan for the United States” by economists John Cogan, Daniel Heil and John Taylor, which makes the case for a reduction in ...

Should the governor so much unchecked power?

Now it’s a “twindemic.” It’s the latest indication that there will be no end to the unprecedented government restrictions on freedom and commerce that have been forced on Californians since Gov. Gavin Newsom’s March 4 declaration of a state of emergency. At the time, the emergency was the possibility that medical facilities in the state would be overwhelmed. The new coronavirus was projected to kill 2.2 million Americans if nothing was done to stop it, and 1.1 million Americans even if preventiv...

Manhattan Beach protest calls out demands for Bruce’s Beach

People placed sunflowers, marigolds and roses into the surf on Saturday. Aug. 29, to symbolically present them to Willa Bruce, a Black businesswoman in the early 20th century who founded Bruce’s Beach. About 80 participants showed up in front of Manhattan Beach City Hall on Saturday before walking a half-mile north to the former 1920s beach resort that she created for Black people to enjoy the sea. Protesters chant “whose streets? Our streets” to demand equity in Black homeownership and Black e...

Lawsuits offer minority families the best chance of returning to the classroom

The school year has begun for most of the state’s six million schoolchildren, but the vast majority of classrooms remain eerily silent – thanks to Gov. Newsom’s misplaced concern about COVID-19. “Science,” he says? Major scientific bodies, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Centers for Disease Control, favor reopening classrooms. While the risks of returning are minor, the consequences of closures — especially to poor and minority students — a...

Staples Center is latest NBA arena named as a voting center for fall General Election

Angelenos now can use their voices to do more than cheer their home teams and their favorite musical artists at Staples Center. They’ll also be able to head to the arena to vote in the upcoming general election, according to an announcement Saturday from the Lakers, Staples Center, AEG and the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder. The news came a day after the NBA and NBPA’s joint statement that they’re planning to team up to advance a handful of new social justice initiatives, including turning NBA a...

Angels see Franklin Barreto as a potential super-utility player

ANAHEIM — Joe Maddon has another reason to bring out his Ben Zobrist stories. The Angels manager was recently discussing Luis Rengifo when he summoned the name of his former super-utility player with the Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago Cubs. And on Saturday, he again brought up Zobrist in comparison to Franklin Barreto. Barreto, who was acquired for Tommy La Stella on Friday night, will need to clear COVID-19 protocols before he can join the Angels. He can play second, third, shortstop and some outfi...

Rams No. 2 QB John Wolford stokes coaches’ confidence

INGLEWOOD — For the second consecutive year, John Wolford is accomplishing about as much as an NFL player can in August. In 2019, the undrafted free agent quarterback from the short-lived Alliance of American Football used a strong performance with his arm and legs in the Rams’ four preseason games to vault into a job on the practice squad. This time, with preseason games canceled in the COVID-19 pandemic, Wolford has used near-flawless outings in the Rams’ two intrasquad scrimmages at SoFi Stad...

The NHL’s Top 100 Prospects – Postseason Rankings

Prospects are always a hot topic in the NHL. What teams have the best farm systems? Who’s the best prospect for each team? Which prospect is better than another? There is constant discussion about prospects in the league, and the landscape is always changing. Prospects graduate, they get traded, they perform better or worse than expected, and sometimes they simply don’t make the cut. In recent years, it seems like the talent pool is getting deeper and better as the years go on. With a wealth ...

Dodgers approach trade deadline eyeing ‘premium talent’

This year’s trade deadline arrives Monday with a set of unique challenges in a one-of-a-kind season. For the Dodgers, though, the biggest challenge of all might be this – how do you improve on a team that already seems complete with no obvious needs? “I think from our standpoint we’re not viewing this deadline in a way that we have an acute need that we need to go out and address,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said as the hours counted down to Monday’s deadline, resch...

Activists blockade major cleanups at homeless encampments

Activists set up blockades this week along Los Angeles-area streets to resist comprehensive sanitation operations that they contend displace people from their tent homes and makeshift shelters, despite public health guidelines that advise against dispersing homeless encampments during the COVID-19 pandemic. Protesters targeted clean-up operations scheduled around shelters in Hollywood and Van Nuys, where one person was arrested during a clash between protesters and more than a dozen police offic...
