The first of the three nights was sold out and it also happened to fall on his 38th birthday. Throughout the evening,...

Yoko Ono honored by St. Vincent, Shirley Manson and a powerful night of performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA

As singer Shirley Manson closed out a celebration of Yoko Ono in Los Angeles on Friday, she admitted that as a child she believed she should hate Ono, wrongly blaming her as many once did for marrying John Lennon and the break-up of the Beatles that soon followed. But hate turned to love, Manson said, the perfect sentiment for all that John and Yoko espoused. And looking into the darkness to where Ono sat quietly watching, Manson said she now only hoped she didn’t burst into tears, so much does ...

Recipe: A quick and easy way to make Chicken Parmesan

My longtime pal Mary Mannone is a great cook. Having dinner at her home is always a treat. She makes everything look easy. Her Chicken Parmesan served atop a citrusy arugula salad is a favorite. The recipe is snagged from cookbook celebrity Ina Garten, but Mannone has a few tricks that make it perfect for a company dinner. She pounds and breads the chicken breasts before guests arrive and refrigerates them. Right before dinner she cooks the chicken in two skillets, eliminating the need to heat t...

LA Clippers team up with LA tech stars to promote science, engineering, math careers

It was a Friday of questions and answers at the L.A. Convention Center, as scores of students and parents descended downtown for the Clippers SciFest SoCal. That’s right.

Pearl District is a New American culinary gem in Sherman Oaks

At one time, the large space at 14015 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks was home to a casual eatery called Café Cordiale. Then, it was taken over by the folks from the nearby Boneyard Bistro, and turned into a more elegant spot called SOCA. Which after a year and a half was replaced by a Mexican concept called Boneyard Cantina. Which you may have missed if you blinked; it didn’t last very long at all. Now, the space is a branch of the very popular Westlake Village New American called Pearl District....

Successful Aging: I retired and realized I have too few friends and too much stuff

Q. I recently retired for the second time as a health-care business owner. Here is what is hitting me: Many friends have become ill, some have passed away, and neighbors are moving into retirement communities or areas close to their children. In wanting to downsize, I am going through papers, photos of vacations and even old boyfriends – so many memories of my past. Add to that my daughter tells me she is not interested in my things, that they are my memories, not hers. I find this all depressin...

Photographer remembers Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington with a sold-out exhibition in Burbank

Just before Southern California rock band Linkin Park’s landmark debut album “Hybrid Theory” was released in 2000, musician and photographer Jim Louvau had met vocalist Chester Bennington when their bands played a gig together at The Mason Jar in Louvau’s and Bennington’s hometown of Phoenix, Arizona. The pair became fast friends and later, as Louvau balanced being in a band with his passion for photography, Bennington became one of his favorite subjects to capture. “It was always a joke between...

Gardening: Enjoying the flowering rebirth of perennials while they bloom

Daffodils, whose appearance is an undeniable harbinger of spring, bring smiles not only to gardeners but to poets, too. When William Wordsworth lay on his couch and thought of their unforgettable nodding golden trumpets, he wrote that then “my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.” The word “daffodil” is derived from asphodel, a related flower of the lily family. Asphodel for the Greeks conjured up a meadow encountered in the afterlife. There is something about the rebirth of ...

Master Gardener: How to keep your houseplants from getting shriveled and brown

Q: I have several houseplants that are shriveled and/or brown at the leaf edges. I take care to water them regularly, and I even have them sitting in a pebble tray so they can get some extra humidity. What could be causing these symptoms? A: Although you are careful to ensure that your plants are properly hydrated, many indoor plants demand more moisture than a pebble tray can provide. Our climate in Southern California is extremely arid, which can be tough on tender tropical plants. Dry leaf ma...

How gardening may be helping people live longer

Gardening saved Mary Lou Heard’s life. In the 1970s, Heard, who would later become known as Orange County’s patron saint of cottage gardens, went through a divorce that was so devastating she was hospitalized. On the grounds of the hospital, there was a small neglected garden. Mary Lou got down on her hands and knees and, for the first time in a long time, she would later write, felt peace. Now more and more studies are supporting what Mary Lou and many others have known in their hearts all alon...

5 ways to improve your garden this week, Mar. 23-29

1. Harvest time Continue harvesting winter crops and citrus. Remember – you don’t need to pick all your oranges, lemons, and other citrus when it first ripens. Most citrus fruits will hold on the tree – and become even sweeter – for several months. So harvest what you can use and let the rest of the fruits get sweeter. Then as more and more start to fall off, you can harvest the rest of the crop and share it. 2. Herbal remedy Refresh woody herb plants such as rosemary, sage, and tarragon by prun...
